since i am a female-character supporter, i'm glad to see Orihime's talent appearing in the latest chapter, "The Rejection of Events" (aka. RE, from now on), do you guys think about the importance of it in the Aizen's termination?
And another question, might Grimjaw play part in her change.. i guess this Arancar will be a bit impressed to her.
Ps. This is my own opinion, many say Orihime is useless since her attack is weak, but i think her skill is quite hazardous, after modification and advanced training, in her full intention, even the Arancar might get killed easily.
The power of OUTER SHIELD can protect even the thickest power (refer to the first time Ichiko and companions went to help Rukia) so if she could adapt the shape of shield into pyramid, she can distract easily the laser of Menos (Zero, is it, pls forgive my idiot memory), in my opinion no need to fight that silly cannon.
The INNER SHIELD is the most hazardous, since they can reject the bad events why can't the reject the good events? To eliminate and return all the injuries from the previous battle is more horrible than to make it directly. You see that she can immediately extend the healing area so no matter she meets yami, the stupid pig will be rejected into blood-soaked meat and hope Chad or Ichida plows it into ash.
Tsubaki's ability is just a main technique to get rid of the small bad guys. Orihime has no intention to harm the others, but i guess soon Grimjaw will give her some lesson and she will realize how to be cruel. However, not turning so fast from totally white to thickly black, she might use Tsubaki better and she would learn how to damage seriously her foe.
However, Orihime needs partner to work out. Not sure it will be one in the Ichiko's companion or her best girl friend. And at the end she may probably sacrifice all the 6 Knights before the battle ends.
