His Bankai is “Hindsight Bias” - Learning From Sosuke Aizen’s Downfall (BLEACH)

Cover to BLEACH Volume 48 (VIZ Media edition) featuring Sosuke Aizen.

Ever had a moment where something happens and you reacted by saying “I knew that was going to happen!”? Imagine that you behaved that way for every major event that happens in your life. Scary, right? Try telling (arguably) the biggest victim of hindsight bias, BLEACH’s own Sosuke Aizen, that. Being someone like Aizen doesn’t really bode well for one’s life since something more powerful than Bankai will make its presence felt: stagnation.

Happy Birthday To Our “Superman” Sociopath, Sosuke Aizen!

Sosuke Aizen when revealed as the main villain of BLEACH.

May 29 marks the birthday of one of the more notable sociopaths in anime and manga today, BLEACH’s Sosuke Aizen. The plot twist involving his true intentions during the Soul Society Rescue storyline remains one of the more epic plot twists in recent memory.

His character is a great reminder that even good people around you can be extremely deceiving and you might not even know it until it is too late. 

Who remembers the time when Aizen was first revealed as the central antagonist of BLEACH and what memories do you have of him?

Here’s probably the one thing I will always remember about him.

Aizen shows how fast he is by touching Ichigo Kurosaki.

Even though this scene still makes me laugh, who said Aizen lacked empathy? Everyone knew he was in love with Ichigo Kurosaki the moment he heard about him. I always thought that Aizen didn’t want Ichigo to go through the “dirty politics” of Soul Society, albeit that his methods were misguided. Did Aizen see himself in Ichigo to a certain degree? We probably won’t know until he appears once more in the series.

Though honestly, if he was a good guy, Aizen would make a great hypnotherapist with Kyoka Suigetsu. That voice of his in the anime is also calming. 

Let’s celebrate his wickedness (no matter how convoluted it gets) and let’s also forget the fact that he became a Pokemon in the end, ok?

Happy Birthday, Aizen fan-art featuring Sosuke Aizen and Gin Ichimaru.

What Aizen’s new form should really look like. Just why, Kubo…?

Who seriously did not see this coming? Maybe I should do a follow-up on Gin in the future.

Quote with 5 notes

All living creatures place their faith in someone more powerful than them and they cannot survive unless they blindly follow that person. The recipient of that faith then seeks out someone in an even higher position in order to escape from the pressure. That person then seeks out someone even more powerful that he must put his faith in. In this way, all kings are born and in this way, all Gods are born. Do not believe in me yet, Hirako Shinji. For now, I shall slowly teach you who the God is that you will put your faith in. Believing in me comes after that.
