Here's what I posted about the episode last time
, but rewritten in a style more appropriate to the mid-18th century. Just for fun.
Being episode the 253rd of the Production of Bleach - In this episodic entry, Byakuya trounces Koga even as Muramasa transforms entirely into the semblance of an Arrancar, and proceeds to emulate the "Black Goat of the Woods With a Thousand Young" as described in the literary endeavors of one H. Lovecraft; Orihime is unable to affect the Proceedings to any notable Effect, great though her Compassion may be; Uryu creates a Veritable Fusillade of projectiles, casting them hither and yon; Sado's Efforts lack any great Efficacy. Ichigo strives mightily, performing a Getsuga Tensho and summoning his Vizardly facial covering of a moment, but Events transpire such that the Scenario becomes more Dire rather than less so. And then the Armored Horsemen arrive, but for the fact that the Shinigami truly have no such units within their ranks, so that the Metaphor becomes, in truth, most Inopportune, and the rest is merely a motley Collection of merrily smirking Shinigami and their comrade Swords. I would wager e'en a pounds worth that All and Sundry were biding their time whilst observing the melee, waiting until the Peak of Dramatic Tension had been reached before entering the Conflict to succor those who had received the worst of the bargain.
Of a sudden, an apparition appears worthy of a nightmare evoked by Doctor Mesmer himself! Does not Muramasa appear to be surmounted by some manner of oculus-teat-sphincter Amalgamation? And then the more commonplace Form of a Garganta, appearing much as though the Firmament endeavors to birth a Multiplicity of hollows, gapes most disturbingly, and a great Foreboding comes upon me that forthcoming Events shall include some manner of hollow-producing Male Member. 'Twould be well to retire to the countryside and allow this imagery to recede from my Consciousness. A multiplicity of times, perchance.
'Tis fortunate that Ichigo undertakes to Inform us of Muramasa's Obsession with Koga, doing so most redundantly throughout the course of events. It is certain that we had been unable to derive this fact as of yet.
Orihime: "Muramasa is sad."
Me: "This whole episode is sad."
And speaking of Orihime: When she and Rukia were being attacked by the bargain basement hollows, would it have killed her to have Tsubaki (aka The Bad Attitude Hair-clip Fairy) take out a few of them? She's got at least that much
offensive power available.
So, Koga being Byakuya's dad is just my personal headcanon, then?
"New from BlastCo: The Personal Headcanon, the latest in self defense!" I'd buy one.
Why was Koga calling for Muramasa when he just broke and killed him. I didn't think he knew the dude was still existing by being stubborn.
He was hallucinating from the blood loss? Or maybe he could feel Muramasa's spiritual pressure.
