Wait. They like to KILL her? Orihime fans. They kill her in their fic? Not that I don’t enjoy torturing my fave…
well a few have had her coming back to life. one notable work is called “what dreams may come”, where rangiku led the resurrected oweehimae to a vast field to meet ichigo on the other side. they then ran towards each other amidst the rays of the setting sun. T^T
#1 is b/c he’s ignored her crush for so long. They want to punish him for not seeing her love. I don’t even wanna think about #2.
Poor Ichi. Hasn’t he been punished enough by Kubo for nothing?! First it’s the butcher knives. Now look at what he’s wearing. Three layers of fugly grandmother blankets.
And she probably died in the process of sacrificing herself for him. Right?
SHE JUMPS IN FRONT OF ICHI TO PROTECT HIM!!! IN ALL THOSE FICS/FANCOMICS
Too bad it’s a feat performed by Rukia at the end of the FB Arc. That’s canon.
Did they copy the plots from bad, bad fanfiction?
You should look for IO fanworks. They’re hilarious.
Why is it that IO doujin (Eng Chinese and Jap) always either:
1) O gets critically injured, dying, Ichi crying, realising his lub for her, she says, don’t cry!! She dies. He screams.
2) They get married. She gets preggers. The entire family gives Ichi a lecture on how to take care of her. Seriously it’s so dumb.
I realised lately that among those who follow me, there are more people who actually like this character than I initially expected. They never said anything to me, but I think it must have hurt them even a little to see me hating a character they like. So, this is one of thos…
I’ll never forget the time when she was in HM thanking only k-kun for coming to save her. She was never helpless, never had a spiritual limiter placed on her. After everything was over, still it was k-kun! your hair so long. Who in the world does that?
Looks like the eyes of a dung beetle.
"The way he looks at her"
Did you catch this? bleachlists.tumblr.com/… The insight on Orihime was particularly on point.
No, but thanks I’ll read it later. :> (I don’t follow her or any Bleach blogs, and catch only things that I happen to see :D)
I realised lately that among those who follow me, there are more people who actually like this character than I initially expected.

Rukigo? Are you saying Rukia is chasing after Ichigo? Failberry, please. You’re so unoriginal it’s embarrassing.
Please don’t generalise that every Rukia fan would love what she’s wearing or how she’s acting everytime she shows up. Please DO NOT assume we are YOU when it comes to your treatment of Failhime. I made plenty of criticisms on Rukia’s behaviour in the past, and as recent as a year ago voiced my displeasure with how the Riruka fight has gone. I do not always like what she’s wearing. I can say that I hate what she’s wearing most of the time.
Orihime looks trashy, but then again she always does. For the record, if Rukia were to eat a hotdog while looking seductively at an onlooking audience, it would NOT be called sexy. It would ALSO be called trashy. But thank god for her being an unsexy BOY, I guess? :3
1) Morita agreeing with JYB about Failhime being a choice for Ichigo, therefore it must mean IH is the reasonable choice! (Because voice actors really can read the manga better than anyone else! And people like JB who doesn’t read the manga can read the manga better than anyone else!)
2) My mother doesn’t read Bleach, but she knows Bleach better than anyone else. So therefore if she picks Orihime, then Orihime is best for Ichigo and no one else. (Well, since JB doesn’t read Bleach, it doesn’t matter if my mother doesn’t read Bleach either. I’m just going to walk down the street and ask some random Tom Dick and Harry who the end-couple will be! It definitely will lend credence to my ship.)
3) Rukia is not as attractive as Failhime, she always hits Ichigo, she’s a best friend and ‘one of the guys’, Ichigo will never like her.
(Hey. Do you remember, Org? In the beginning, KT said Ichigo has a very bad memory. So bad, in fact, he couldn’t remember people’s faces or what they have said the day before. His first memory of Yumichika was a potato face with peacock feathers. And yet, he managed to use every single word Rukia had used, and expressly TOLD his dad that these words from this woman made him feel so much better.
Do you remember these, Orgs?
Ichigo’s concentration on the memory of this BOYISH woman actually reactivated his FB
That Keigo actually teased Ichigo about missing A BOY like Rukia
That Ichigo blushed over a BOY’s ASS?
And that the Pompadour Uncle telling Ichigo to PIERCE A BOY’S ASS?
oh dear, Ichigo is so GAY for BOYS like Rukia!)
4) Rukia is old, and dead (Isshin was old and dead too, dumb fucks.)
5) Kubo said Ichigo and Rukia are not romantic
(of course, the entire SS Arc is plain buddyship, Kubo completely trashed SS lololz - fans are completely stupid for shipping IR from SS. Ichigo swearing on his soul to save Rukia cannot compare to Renji swearing on his soul to save Rukia, they are totally different things despite appearing on the same panel and same page. Rukia drying his rain is also buddyship, it really means nothing when Orihime said Rukia is the person who changed his world, in fact, it is more romantic when Orihime thanked Ichigo for staying alive after the Byakuya’s fight. Definitely, ch213 is all a lie, the calendar spread for 2011 is Kubo loving the extraordinary buddyship between TWO BOYS on the beach, and everytime Kubo faved fans’ tweets crying for Ichigo and Rukia to become a couple, it really means he wanted Ichigo and Orihime to become a couple, even though he ignored all Ichigo and Orihime tweets. Kubo also said there will not be live-action movie, and yet today that possibility is not too far-fetched).
6) Kubo focused on Orihime’s love too much, it’s impossible for him to trash it
(Eh, didn’t KT trash the entire IR fandom, the entire SS Arc, the entire IR relationship that 95% of the Japanese fandom thought was romance, for plain buddyship? Wasn’t that what YOU said you believed? You said KT didn’t care for ANY of that! He just did what he wanted! Hahaha serves the IR fandom right! You said. So what do you mean by, ‘impossible’ to do the same to Failhime?)
Please Orgs. Come up with a FRESHER argument. All the ones above are boring as fuck and has been owned to the death a couple hundred of times. Reusing them over and over only accentuate your idiocy. It definitely will not get you out of being called an Org.
You must be furious why I’m calling you Orgs now. I got lazy at typing ‘Origos’. That’s the only reason. I’m not especially proud that the term I made up just for kicks so many years ago have become ‘a thing’, because let’s face it, I do get embarrassed about negative things that get overblown like wild fire. But I am especially tickled that the term ‘origo’ has stuck through the seasons, just for people like yourselves. Anyway I’m bored with it now. ‘Orgs’, however - is easy to pronounce, and especially fitting, since Orgs (with a slight variation in spelling to the species in LOTR) are always such vile, ugly creatures that utter unintelligible shit all the time. Note that I say Orgs - and that means selective IH fans and not ALL IH fans. Okay? *bats eyelashes*
*snicker*snicker* well, it just proves that this person doesn’t even know what ‘platonic’ means.
I just love this one: Orihime looks at Ishida as if he were another ‘girl’. Failhime doesn’t see Ishida as a ‘girl’ or a ‘bff girlfriend’, silly. But I’m sure Ichigo sees Failhime as just another FRIEND.
I’m only writing this because I keep getting mails about RENJI.
People who think that I would automatically hate Renji just because I hate Failhime are mistaken. I actually genuinely like Renji. However, I do not support people who refuse to acknowledge Renji’s faults, either. I think some may…
My experiences seem to differ from yours, but then again, probably exposure to different fans over the years.
My initial dislike of Renji came not from the character, but how his fans liked to give him a pass on how he acted in the early Soul Society Arc. In comparison to Byakuya who even his fans admitted he was a complete jerkass to Rukia and had a large hand in her isolation and pain. At least Byakuya’s motivation behind that was more fleshed out and complex than Renji’s “can’t even look her in the eyes until I’VE PROVEN MY WORTH no this isnt about my own inferiority complex what do you mean?”
My dislike of Renji didn’t actually solidify around his character until his fight with Jackie and the whole “can’t fight a guuuuuurl” bullshit; which feels so awkward in comparison to his “Rukia’s a warrior, stop being a helicopter, Ichigo” scene in Hueco Mundo. Admittedly, that’s also a microcosm of Kubo’s squick around his male heroes being responsible for the death of female villains (Cirucci and recently Bambietta) and sexism in shounen manga in general, but it doesn’t make it any less bullshit.
I can understand how some overzealous Renji fans could influence one’s perception of this character. It’s very seldom that I find myself having to deal with them, however.
I didn’t see the act of him not killing Jackie because she’s a girl as sexist. It was a line I thought was lame and overused, but it’s honestly more likely that I am not as sensitive to such issues. I also didn’t see “hey, come at me first” as sexist. So many dominant fighters in shounen use that line all the time, boys on boys, the fact that he used it on Jackie didn’t grab my attention. I didn’t think, wait, she’s a girl so he shouldn’t say it. But if the guy pays extra attention to his speech that he would only say, “hey come at me first,” to another guy but not a girl, would that be sexist to the girl?
Maybe KT is sexist (for example, Div 11, the strongest div apparently, consists solely of guys except for Yachiru, who’s only there because of her attachment to Ken) and KT messed up somewhere in his characterisation of Renji (as pointed out, he defended Rukia’s position as a warrior instead of someone meant to be protected) and generally sexism is rife in shounen manga, but personally I still don’t think Renji’s character is so horrible that he is unredeemable.
