I wanted to post this as this is one of my most-read articles ever from a time when BLEACH fandom was pretty high. I still like Ulquiorra and Daisuke Namikawa was perfect for his anime voice.

I don’t blame anyone who feels nihilistic and I’ve realized that other people are often the reason why nihilism happens.

The amount of traffic I got for this post did help push the blog, so there you go. Anywho, enjoy this look back at one of my favorite character analyses ever!
