The Hueco Mundo storyline just keepins going, and going, and going...
on July 18, 2011
Tite Kubo, <strong>Bleach, vol. 33: The Bad Joke</strong> (ViZ, 2001)
Okay, so the big battle between Ichigo and Grimmjow wasn't the end of the Hueco Mundo storyline, and that was something of a disappointment. But balancing out the fact that Kubo is going to keep dragging us along in a story that wore its welcome out quite a while ago is the revelation of who Nel actually is, Nel having been the only new character introduced in Hueco Mundo who seemed worthy of the characterization Kubo was so exact with back in the early days of the series. And those scenes are quite good, though the rest of the book doesn't live up to the rest of the series so far. ***
