Right ever since the fight between Hitsugaya and Halibel started, i've had a voice in the back of my head saying "Histugaya is soo popular that he's going to win by default, It's going to seem like he's losing but Hutsugaya will pull some random move out of his but." Yeah as you might be able to tell I'm not a fan of hitsugaya, he gets too much screen time and I felt that someone like ukitake, urahara, hick even yoruichi should be fighting Halibel. Because Hitsugaya is (or should be) too weak
for arguments sake lets say two things:
1. Hitsugaya is around the strength as byakuya
2. Halibel is weaker than ulquiorra when he gets to his second release
When byakuya was fighting ichigo he got his but kicked by ichigo's hollow, And when ichigo manifested that power hes was still getting beat by ulquiorr, not just in his second release but in his first release too. And as Halibel is a higher rank than ulquiorrashe should be stronger...
But what do you guys think as I'm probably reading too much into this lol, maybe i should just enjoy the fight between stark and kyouraku shunsui when they're done playing tag.
