Yeah, I liked her well enough. None of the women in that anime really stood out as my favorite up to the point i stopped watching. They were all "just fine", is the best way I can define my feelings for them.Rukia. She is the best girl in Bleach.
Yeah I just use the term "tournament" in regards to shounen for the blanket term of "the point when the story devolves to just being about fighting and getting strong to fight the NEW guy who dwarfs the last one." whether it's an official tournament or not is secondary to me.ohhh..., the dreaded Tournament Arc. The bane of most shounens shows....and Battle Angel Alita: Last Order. Though with Bleach, it was less tournament, and more convoluted plots, retcons, and a million back up plans, Xanatos Gambit, "I wanted you or planned on you doing this", fucking Captain Aizen. One of the most boring, overpowered villains in anime right next to Hao Asakura and all of the Uchia bloodline. Glad I stopped after the rescue Rukia arc.
