"What do you think of the argument of; Ichigo in HM was going to save Orihime, but then dropped the mission to save Rukia? People are also saying that the only reason why he attacked Ulquiorra was not because he mentioned Orihimes name, but it was because Ichigo had to beat him and get to Rukia quickly. What are your thoughts. Ive seen this debunked before a while ago, but I love seeing how you handle these things ^.^"
It’s ridiculous to say that Ichigo ‘dropped the mission of saving Orihime to save Rukia,’ …as if Ichigo would only rescue one person, and then call it a day? His goal in Hueco Mundo was for all of his nakama to make it out alive; he made that clear at the end of the Grimmjow battle when he mentioned all of their names. However, Rukia was in more dire need of saving at the time as he felt her spiritual pressure practically disappear, while Orihime’s was unaffected. Had he defeated Ulquiorra, he would have rescued Rukia and continued on saving Orihime. Ichigo is not going to ‘drop,’ saving anyone. It’s insulting to suggest that he would.
And to say that Ichigo ‘dropped,’ his mission of rescuing Orihime to go save Rukia, you would also have to acknowledge that he then subsequently ‘dropped,’ his newfound mission to save Rukia the moment Ulquiorra mentioned Orihime, even though Rukia was in immediate danger, and Orihime was not. But again, Ichigo is not going to indefinitely ‘drop,’ saving anyone.
To break down that argument even further: “the only reason why he attacked Ulquiorra was not because he mentioned Orihime’s name, but it was because Ichigo had to beat him and get to Rukia quickly”
—When Ichigo charged at Ulquiorra, he made no mention of Rukia; he confronted him about bringing Orihime to HM. In fact, that argument is contradicted by Kubo’s writing through Nel, when she told Orihime that Ichigo ‘dove towards Ulquiorra after hearing him say your name.’—Completely cancels that argument out.
What we can take away from that moment is the recurring theme of an enemy like Ulquiorra trying to get Ichigo’s attention/tempt him into a fight by mentioning/targeting Orihime (Shinji, Grimmjow, Nnoitra, Ginjou, and Tsukishima have all used this very same tactic).
Ulquiorra tried to tempt Ichigo into a fight; it wasn’t working. But then he mentioned Orihime (triggering, what I feel, is the ‘soft-spot,’ Ichigo has for her) and we watched Ichigo go from level-headed to rage-mode in .02 seconds. This is confirmed even further not long after the fact, again, with what Nel said, ‘Ichigo dove towards Ulquiorra after hearing him say your name.’ Meaning that Kubo doesn’t ‘accidentally,’ write all of these instances where enemies use Orihime as a means to get to Ichigo—He is aware of it, enough that he points it out, with words, in his writing. And if he’s aware of it, he’s doing it on purpose; if you’re an enemy and you want to piss Ichigo off or tempt him into a fight, attack his heart by mentioning Orihime.

i just did it
I totally remember watching this as a kid and thinking that looked like the most delicious biscuit/cookie in the world
when in reality was’t it a ritz cracker dipped in water?
THAT’S CREME A LA CREME A LA EDGAR YOU IGNORANT SLUT
every so often I sometimes get a mug of milk, add a splash of vanilla extract, a spoonful of sugar, and a sprinkle of cinnamon and heat it in the microwave and have it with Ritz Crackers and pretend it’s Creme A La Creme A La Edgar and it’s seriously just the best.
I JUST MADE THAT MYSELF AND AM CURRENTLY HAVING RITZ CRACKERS WITH IT AND LEMME TELL YOU THIS SHIT IS DELICIOUS
SOMEONE FOUND THE RECIPE TO CREME A LA CREME A LA EDGAR
Don’t forget the sleeping pills.
I wanted that cracker as a kid. I NEEDED that cracker as a kid.
I just need to get something off my chest about my girl Orihime for a sec. One thing I see over and over again, among a million others, is “I hate Orihime because she’s too nice. It’s unrealistic for one person to be so nice and forgiving. That’s insane.”
All right. I get it. I usually am not a huge fan of the super nice characters either. They usually rub me the wrong way too. So I won’t dwell on how that would be a decent reason if one was saying that against a 2D character yet Orihime happens to be one of the most developed characters of Bleach. Or that Orihime being “too nice” is actually a misinterpretation of her character as she is capable of sass, anger, inflicting harm, destruction, scolding, jealousy, just this, and competitiveness. (not all of it, btw. and headcanon: maybe it’s my Slytherin talking too loudly, but I totally think she invented that game to purposefully tip the odds in her favor. Maybe partly for winning, partly for an excuse to do a beer shower. She may have also been joking again with Tatsuki not getting the joke again. /headcanon ramblings)
But lemme say something about Orihime. Orihime’s naturally nice. That’s her default-mode. She’s not immediately suspicious, she looks for the good in everyone. But niceness is kind of an empty trait and doesn’t really mean a whole lot to me, so it’s good that she’s also kind and forgiving. Like a frackin’ Disney princess.
Allow me to point out WHY I think she’s so nice, kind, and forgiving, besides it being in her nature. And to the extreme, at times. Because the one time, the one time she wasn’t nice? The one time she was hateful? The one time she blew up and was selfish and a little cruel? The one time she got into a serious argument with a loved one?
That loved one died.
And that was it. He was gone. No making up. No more childish gifts to hate. No more brother to rant at. No brother to tell her that her hair was beautiful. No nothing. The one time she did this, the one time she indulged in a moment of selfish, hateful, bratty behavior, her world, her only real family, was snatched from her.
Most of us don’t deal with that. We’re allowed to have our selfish arguments and give our loved ones silent treatments or yell at them. But it’s okay, because eventually we’ll forgive each other because that’s what loved ones do. Most of us don’t lose that chance permanently after doing it once.
So, excuse Orihime if she would rather not argue, thank you very much. If she would rather smooth things over and be agreeable and be nice and forgive everything immediately and to the extreme. Because, as life has taught her, the moment she decides to be angry and unforgiving and hateful, that is the moment someone dies. That’s when Tatsuki dies. Or Ichigo. Or Chad. Or Uryuu. Or anyone that she deeply cares about. The moment she slips is the moment any of the family that she’s found is violently stolen from her.
If she ever does get into a serious argument again, she’ll probably be the first to patch up. Might even stop in the middle of the argument. Because whether it’s logical or not, her instincts have been trained to tell her that she’ll lose that person if she doesn’t make up right this second.
So, again, pardon Inoue Orihime if she decides to err on the side of caution and be nice.
