Comments for Bleach 12
Bleach 12 is basically Bleach 11 The Revenge. It's more fighting, more bloodshed, more posturing over spirit power and an explanation as to what it takes to be a captain in the Soul Society.
For most of this volume I was pretty uninspired but it all. There's only so much escalation of violence one can take before it gets repetitive and silly. Bleach 12 hit that point for me.
The best parts of the volume were the scenes that explained Ichigo and Chad's friendship. Chad's back story explains a lot about him and why he is so loyal to Ichigo.
