Goodbye, Halcyon Days
Orihime's return from the Soul Society is interrupted by the Arrancar Ulquiorra, who has a different, terrifying path for her. Using duplicitous tactics, Ulquiorra convinces Orihime to accompany him to Hueco Mundo, which brands her as a traitor in the Soul Society's eyes and therefore unworthy of rescue. Ichigo refuses to abandon his friend, and sets o

The stakes are high again with Orihime at the heart of an incident that will crank up the tension for everyone. This story arc offers her the chance to express her feelings far more than ever as the evil reigning in Hueco Mundo finds her powers interesting.

The OG squad also assemble in hopes of saving her and it is a moment of blissful joy. I can't wait to see them each get the chance to showcase the improvements in their new powers and their newly-found determination and purpose in life.

I just have fallen in love with this series. For me each page just keeps getting better. It makes me glad I am an avid reader junkie. I can stay awake for hours just reading this series. This volume was great the art was nice and the action really drew my attention.

I LOVED it as much at the others, but Orihime, why this? 😕

Bleach, Vol. 27 continues where the previous tankōbon left off and contains the next nine chapters (234–242) of the on-going manga series.

Under orders from Sōsuke Aizen, Ulquiorra Cifer demands Orihime Inoue to leave with him or he would kill all her friends. She is forced to comply and is given twelve hours to say goodbye to one person while wearing a bracelet that makes her invisible.

Meanwhile, Toshiro Hitsugaya defeats Luppi Antenor while Ichigo Kurosaki is overwhelmed by Grimmjow Jaegerjaque

Given that Manga, and especially Shonen is split up into bigger arcs as composed to volumes I will be analyzing and reviewing this by Arc. I also reread this manga over the span of 2 months, some days reading as much as 100 chapters a day. It would be quite tedious for me to review each 7-8 chapter volume. So this will be copy and pasted throughout all of the 72 manga volumes. That being said, if you're looking at this without having viewed the series...spoiler warning. I don't recap anything, b ...more

This is another big turning point in the novels. Orihime has been kidnapped, even though it looks like she went of her own free will and the Soul Society has forbidden a rescue mission. Ichigo is having none of it however, and ignores the commands and plans to leave himself. Orihime's feelings for Ichigo are outlined in this novel, finally, and you know there are going to be some spectacular fight scenes coming up. Still going strong.

One of my favorite volumes in the series. Bonds of friendship stretched and tested, the beginning of inevitable confrontations, and Five Lifetimes, One Love. Goodbye, Halcyon Days.

At this point, recommended for fans of the series. It's too far down the rabbit hole for the casual reader to pick up and know what the hell is going on.

I like volume twenty seven because it it the first time we actually get to see Waco Mundo, which is where my favorite fight/scene happens, but unfortunately that is not for about twenty more volumes. I also like how we get a great scene of Orihime healing Grimmjow just for hime to instantly destroy the Espada who was created to replace him.

Bleach was definitely very interesting to read and different to what I usually read. I enjoyed the whole soul reaper concept and how we find out more and more about the main character as the story goes on.

It's a fast read and is easy to understand but gets progressively more difficult to follow parts of the story due to there being so many different characters that can be qualified as important in the progression of the story.

I would recommend it for the story line and the graphics but I do feel

Tite Kubo, Bleach: Good-Bye, Halcyon Days (ViZ, 2001)

With the arrancar threat running ahead of schedule, the head of the Soul Society decides to withdraw his troops to the Soul Society itself rather than worry about Karakura. Orihime, training with Rukia in the Soul Society, is dispatched back to the human world—but is kidnapped by Ulquiorra on the way. Without any hope of Soul Society help, Ichigo decides he needs to take on Orihime's rescue himself. A welcome return to form in this volume, and

One of the more haunting, sad stories in Bleach. I have always had a soft spot for Orihime because even though I like Rukia, Orihine has been madly in love with Ichigo from day one & he of course, has no clue. He does seem to notice Rukia, however. I have always wanted Ichigo to end up with Orihime & Rukia with Chad. Also, Ulquuiora(sp) starts becoming much more of a major character in this volume, and his character is definitely one of the most memorable of this Arc of Bleach. Plus I love the t ...more

Hoo boy, so much going on in this one. Tatsuki finally confronts Ichigo, he picks absolutely the wrong thing to say to her and she punches him right through a window. He should know not to mess with her. Orihime has been abducted, Chad and Uryû have super trained, Ichigo and Uryû's dads have a much going on...all of it awesome...but Orihime's goodbye to Ichigo-that killed me. I kept hoping Ichigo would wake up..hit me in the feels.
Grr.. I'm giving this three stars because it's well done and has at least one great "This shit just got real" moment, but the plot is basically recycling the last arc's, but with different window dressing.

I'm pretty much just reading this for the backstory now. The main plot is getting tiresome.

well once you get the idea of the whole concept i.e Soul Society, Shinagami etc...
you will finish one volume within an hour. i mean it is that addictive. talk about a page turner.
it is a great experience to read this series. the whole concept is neatly implemented.

there r lot's of twists and turns to keep you hooked to this series.

so all in all Worth 4.5 stars out of 5.

That's why they were building up/making a fuss about her powers!!!
Another kidnapping :/ and another rescue mission, I didn't get the whole traitor thing -_- and by now you kindda get that Soul Society isn't a very good place!!!
At least this volume was much better than the previous one... we get another purpose for another campaign out side the normal world and into the world of Hollows :)

Bleach is my all time favorite manga, and this volume held so much emotion between characters that I just find myself wanting to re-read or re-watch the scenes in this volume. I was barely able to buy my own copy, and you bet I'm gonna read it again!

this was probably my least favourite orihime moment. I felt so bad for her (unrequited love sucks!! I'm so sorry honey :( but at the same time....... uryuu??? what about him?????) but I That Scene made my insides crawl.

speaking of uryuu: his reaction to hearing about hime's capture. MY. HEART.
