Dokugamine Riruka

An interesting new plot arc for Bleach ... and a tsundere fangirl to go with it. Riruka is a top candidate for my favorite new character to be introduced this year (in anime). She steals just about every scene she shows up in. I haven't read the manga version, so I really hope her character evolves into something useful.

Bleach can get rather bland at times because of all the filler, but I'm glad that the core episodes can continue to pump out characters like this even after a decade.
