Awesome / Not Quite As Planned

Go To

The number of funny moments in Not Quite As Planned is matched only by the number of awesome moments.

  • Ichigo dropping Jidanbo with a One-Hit KO then blasting the gate off its tracks.
  • Ishida paying Renji back for his earlier defeat, completely owning him with little more than superior use of the battlefield.
  • Ichigo vs Mayuri. Awesome, as well as enough Nightmare Fuel to launch a space shuttle. Really, any time Ichigo uses his Resureccion you can expect a Moment of Awesome to follow.

  • Ichigo firing a Gran Rey Cero. Aizen really wasn't expecting that to hit him.
  • Orihime and Chad tag teaming Kenpachi. They're completely outclassed in raw power, but they manage to stalemate Kenpachi long enough that he offers to leave them alone in exchange for a raincheck to fight Ichigo.
  • In a villainous example, Aizen sneaking up on Yoruichi, Ukitake, and Soi Fon and taking them out all at once.
    • And conversely, Soi Fon's silent alarm summoning help in time to save their lives.
  • Ichigo breaking every rule in the "Shonen Protagonist Combat Rulebook" and sucker-punching Byakuya and Komamura. He hits them full force in his Resureccion before they can even draw their Zanpakuto.
  • The Omake. Still non-canon but Byaukuya, Renji, Ichigo, Soifon and many others walking to the track "March to Arlong Park" is still awesome.
  • Orihime vs Aizen. Aizen loses. Badly. Beware the Nice Ones indeed.
  • The entire Hollow Invasion of Seireitei is one moment of awesome after another on all sides.


  • The Season II trailer is an awesome moment for the author. It's written as if Don LaFontaine was narrating and you can definitely hear his Voice as you read it.
  • The first chapter of the sequel is one long series of awesome moments as Ichigo and Kenpachi slug it out.
  • Ichigo and Senna vs The Dark Ones in the graveyard.
  • Ichigo vs Grand Fisher. This troper was cheering as Ichigo tore the SOB a new one.
    • Also an awesome moment for Isshin, who smacks some sense into Ichigo, preventing a Heroic BSoD.

  • Senna prevents her own kidnapping by blasting Ganryu in the balls with Hado #1. Then she beats the tar out of Benin and hogties her with her own weapon.
  • Sayoko and Wilhelmina acting as Ninja Maids and giving two Bount a heck of a time trying to get past them (though Uryuu helped).
