Journal of anime ramblings, fiction works and reflections
So challenge number 3: Your anime crush (I won’t be able to post during the day, so I’ll do this now).
I’ve had a longstanding crush on Ulquiorra ever since his first appearance in the Arracnar Saga in Bleach.
To me, he was one of the most intriguing characters and there was just this certain amount of mystery surrounding him. Even being outside their realm, watching from the laptop screen, I felt as if there was this wall that blocked any amount of real discernment to what Ulquiorra was feeling or thinking at any point in time.
I guess it’s his powers, his “see-it-to-believe-it” type of logic and the way he handled Orihime, Grimmjow and Ichigo that made me like him so much. He just had this uncanny sense of calm which he rarely ever lost, even in his final battle with Ichigo. I liked how he slowly began to show some signs of emotion rather than staying completely impassive. I wished he’d gotten the chance to live, although I understand why he had to die (to finally understand the concept of the heart). But during those last two episodes, Orihime seemed to be getting through to him about having a heart and faith in the persons she believed in. His past was really a depressing one and I can understand why he learnt to become that loneliness he’d been living in.
Ulquiorra was one of the great characters in Bleach, in my opinion.
