I'll admit that I'd a falling out with Bleach for a while... this whole last arc has had me going wtf?
But this last episode suddenly made me sit up and hope again.
That last sequence with Ichigo remembering and Chad reminding him that he HAS pride in all the things he did as a shinigami... and that glance of Rukia...
*sighs* I am still a fangirl for the series. *laughs* Pride in what you are, what you choose, what you do.
