| The Dark Eccentric chapter 23 . 3/12
Wow, thats obscure. Never would have guessed it.
See you in the sequel.
| The Dark Eccentric chapter 22 . 3/12
Good chapter. Wonder who will be filling the two empty Espada slots in the sequel. As for guessing Murcielago's form...is it just the Segunda Etapa form? Nah too plain...Didn't give much of a description...
Wonder if it crossed Ichigo's mind that giving Soul Society a show of his powers might be a bad idea.
| The Dark Eccentric chapter 21 . 3/12
I love the bit with Zennosuke where Ichigo is just like "Go ahead, check it." And daamn there really are a lot of Captains out of commission. By my count there were...5 out of 13 at that meeting? 1 busy, 2 deserted, 3 injured and 2 dead.
Also that may not have been ballsy so much as just Ichigo doesn't know enough about Yamamoto. Or he's just cocky. probably both. And I love that you finally put that line in there. Brilliant.

I really have been loving these scenes with Ichigo and Ishida after the others left and they only got better once Kenpachi joined in. I suppose the knowledge that Aizen was dead and Rukia safe made them a bit giddy. Also it seems the Vizard are having their victory party a little early...
Shunsui showing up was great. He's one of my favorite characters and you payed him well.
| The Dark Eccentric chapter 19 . 3/12
Oh come on! Gin!? He got so screwed over in canon I was hoping he's at least be able to do something here but you screwed him over even more! Not even the slightest shot at redemption! So mad at you right now.
| The Dark Eccentric chapter 18 . 3/12
Not sure how I feel about Innoue being the one to take out Aizen (the first time at least). I rather didn't like her in canon, but its seems she's grown a spine here so she might be good here but she hasn't got enough screen time for me to tell. But seriously, I get her ability is powerful but I'm not sure her offense is good enough to do that much. I do like Ichigo accidentally learning the Gran Rey Cero though that was entertaining. And I wonder what the effects of an incomplete Hougyoku will be...
Next...This chapter was far funnier than it had any right to be. The traps of a building of Mad Scientists, and Ishida and Ichigo's, banter especially while fighting AAA (who is unfortunately NOT worth 33,650 points).
| The Dark Eccentric chapter 17 . 3/12
These are pretty good scenes and its a pity they didn't work out. I especially like the second since I had noted several times how so many people were switching sides. Seriously the only people left there in favor of Rukia being executed are...Yamamoto and...thats it. And while he is a force to be reckoned with and may be able to wipe the floor with all of them except Shunsui, I doubt he'd kill everyone for this purpose. When every Captain and Vice-Captain still standing is against it I think he might give in.
| The Dark Eccentric chapter 16 . 3/12
Dammit Aizen, stop pulling the overconfident villain card and just kill people already! Seriously the Quincy in the new arc are doing a fairly good job of killing people at least. In the entire story from first chapter to when Aizen is defeated the only people he killed were his own subordinates as far as I remember.
Anyways. The fight and escape of Ichigo and the gang was pretty good, both on their part in doing it and yours in writing it. And the following dialogue when Aizen appeared was hilarious and had me laughing hard. What he did afterwards not so much. Very end of the chapter was a little funny too though.
And that is an excellent point. It takes way too damn long for the Captain Commander to get off his ass and get involved himself. Every time.
| The Dark Eccentric chapter 15 . 3/12
Well shit. Hope they're not dead though they probably are.
Anyways, good to see Byakuya being introspective like Renji. That happens a lot with villians in Bleach after encountering the protagonists. Speaking of Renji I'd almost forgotten about him. Glad you kept Soifon in character and she didn't just leave the Arrancar. Then again the Soifon I know might still have tried killing him. But in your story she did have a Yourichi-induced change of heart which IS in character.
| The Dark Eccentric chapter 14 . 3/12
Also just recalled something I meant to mention before...Why make Ichigo's outfit change to black during resurrection? Think there was something else but I can't recall and its bugging me...Oh right! I love that you'd included that line from when Ichigo saved her in canon about all her opinions being rejected. And another thing I remembered...Damn Nemu got traumatized.
Now for this chapter. Cool fight with Gin finishing with comical tripping. Aizen showing up with possible Espada (totally called it), Kenpachi being Kenpachi, Soifon telling them everything with a comical skipping of explanation and Urahara feeling doomed, Hitsugaya catching on to conspiracy somewhat.
All in all, not much happened this chapter, kind of, but good chapter and I like the way things are proceeding.
| The Dark Eccentric chapter 13 . 3/12
Wow, Ichigo being strategic!? Being an Arrancar really has changed him...
Kidding, this was actually really well done. Though now that I've said it that may actually be OOC, but I'd let it slide because I like this better.
| The Dark Eccentric chapter 12 . 3/12
Gotta love Chad. I do. Always able to get Ichigo out of his funk. I hate that he fell behind in power level but its inevitable when only one of the pair is the main character.
| The Dark Eccentric chapter 11 . 3/12
Hmm, cool resurrection though a little surprised it wasn't more similar to the form Ichigo took when he killed Ulquiorra. I did note that his mask had the red lines like the original did. So maybe thats a later upgrade?
Also the field of blades was an interesting power. Haven't seen that used before. And good to see he still has good old Getsuga Tenshou. Though it certainly attracted some attention.
While I am glad you apparently edited to give Kurosutchi due credit I am a little bit surprised Ichigo had such trouble. Also I love the explanation for the Zanpakuto spirit and absorption of souls. I always love analyzing powers.
| The Dark Eccentric chapter 9 . 3/12
Lots of people converting to their side now. Getting good. And am I misreading that hint or is Aizen pulling in the Espada already?
| The Dark Eccentric chapter 8 . 3/12
I really want to know what the Doctor Kurosaki Unruly Patient Takedown is.
Anyways, good chapter and it seems the gang is already starting to turn a couple Captains and a Vice-Captain to their side.
