This is why I continue to like Bleach. No matter how cliche or predictable events can be, no matter how much Ichigo powers up or whatever the fuck inbetweeen every fight, Aizen is there as one big fucking roadblock. Kill half of his supposedly strongest men? Gain immeasurable amounts of power and new abilities? Re-take the supposed key to his current master plan and have her heal some of his greatest potential threats?
Fuck that noise.
He doesn't give *two* shits. He still has that big shit-eating grin on his face. "Orihime, sit back and smile while I fucking ruin your town and everyone you've ever loved."
He's not being facetious or anything. He is absolutely serious. The destruction of Karakura is a foregone conclusion to him.
