Funny / Bleach: Happy to Serve You

Go To

Chapter 1

  • Yachiru declaring that Urahara's change of address is irrelevant to the Women's Society's promise to work for him to pay off their (Really just her) loan. What's funny is Nanao absolutely sparkling with admiration for the President's commitment... while said President is still inflated from gorging herself on candy.
  • Rukia being lifted up so she's eye-level with Urahara while shouting at him.

  • Everything about Tatsuki's Imagine Spot of her saving Ichigo from a thug.
  • In the omake, Momo arriving to find Yachiru in her new gigai. Yachiru promptly rubs her new developments in her face. Yoruichi soon decides the poor girl's had enough punishment.

Chapter 2

  • How easily Tatsuki falls for Rukia's explanation that Chappy is her twin sister.
  • Tatsuki's reaction to busting into Urahara's office after hearing noises inside, only to discover Nemu...with her stomach open, and Urahara trying to fit a sandwich into the newly installed oven.
    • Urahara's explanation to Tatsuki for Nemu having an oven in her body: "We take cosplay serious here."
  • Senna's Unexplained Recovery reappearance, which is quickly dismissed by both her and Orihime looking at the viewer while nodding seriously, after Senna simply says "I got better".
  • Nel declaring Rukia her Rival...
    Rukia: Uuuh yeah have fun with that.
    Nel: *Bounces away, a caption reading Goes to have fun with that*
  • Everything about the Valentines Day omake. Orihime, Matsumoto, chocolate, nosebleeds, need I say more?

Chapter 3

  • Kensei struggling with a kicking and whining, hungry Mashiro, only for his own stomach to growl too...for which she immediately calls him 'Unladylike'.
  • Kenpachi scaring the color right out of Nanao.
  • Ikkaku getting a Nosebleed at Yachiru's new gigai...before she talks and he remembers exactly who she is.
    Ikkaku: What the hell happened to you!?
    Yachiru: You better not be thinking about anything pervy, Baldy!
    Ikkaku: Nope she is still a bitch.
  • Urahara's perfectly calm reaction to Kenpachi breaking down his lab door.
    Urahara: It wasn't locked.
  • Everything post-Destructo-Nookie.
  • Nel and Hiyori getting into a Tsundere Loop.
    Urahara: If I hire all of you, do you think they will stop???
  • Mashiro and Chappy getting introduced is equal parts adorable and hilarious.
  • The following Leaning on the Fourth Wall conversation.
    Urahara: Where is! Yyyyyyumichika?
    Ikkaku: He is still in the closet.
    Urahara: He should be changed by now.
    Ikkaku: Oh he changed hours ago.

  • In the omake, Urahara finding Yoruichi in cat form napping in a claw machine. Then he tries to grab her, she transforms...and the claw is grabbing her breast. Urahara and Soifon both approved. A lot.

Chapter 4

  • Keigo digs his own grave when he asks Chad where Nel is from because it sounds Mexican.
  • Tatsuki is understandably concerned by Nel's favorite food being souls. Orihime "assures" her that Nel meant soles (the fish).
  • Senna vs. Teenage Nel. Senna is pissed off by Nel saying that she's from a filler- she's from a movie, and those aren't filler!
    • It gets even funnier if you know that Memories of Nobody has Approval of God and has pretty much been canonized.
  • Ichigo knows the food is from Orihime, because no one else would make rice balls stuffed with peanut butter and pickled eel.
  • A sudden Wham Line from the TV reveals a rival restaurant opening up across the street... Taco Aizen. Urahara has two reactions: "How did he (Aizen) get out of his bondage gimp suit?" and "You'd think we would have noticed that sooner."
    • If you're an observant reader, you can indeed notice Taco Aizen being built sooner... back in the first chapter!

Chapter 5

  • Loly tries to bully Nel for defecting to Ichigo's side, only to immediately get her head blown off by Harribel's cero. Orihime later heals her in the background.
  • Chizuru is now Karakura Rizer Erotic, whose strength increases the more pretty girls are around. Ichigo definitely missed something while off in Hueco Mundo.
  • The Shoulder Loli club, consisting of Ichigo and Nel, Kenpachi and Yachiru, and Starrk and Lilynette.
  • Aizen is being haunted by the ghost of Gin. Gin was already a ghost when Aizen killed him, and now he's acting like a classic ghost that only Aizen can see (although he gives off a Ghostly Chill when people pass through him).

Chapter 6

  • Ichigo trying to stop Rukia and Nel's arguing, only to realize he is accidentally touching their two chests. Rukia is uncomfortable. Nel is delighted.
  • Young Yamamoto is flamboyant and charismatic. His fights aren't always effective so long as they "look good". When Samhain burns his hair off, Yamamoto spends a few seconds in a breakdown as he laments how he'll no longer be able to pick up women with his "beautiful, beautiful hair"!

Chapter 7

  • Ukitake's gigai is filled with ketchup instead of blood. Urahara was going to use some kind of lubrication fluid, but accidentally spilled ketchup into it when he was making it.
  • The Stinger shows Mayuri discovering that the poisons he left in Nemu's compartment have been replaced with Urahara's sandwiches. When he complains about having no poison to work with, she responds with "If you leave that sandwich in the sun, the mayo could go bad and cause botulism." Judging by the sign she has to hold up in front of traffic, Mayuri wasn't impressed.

Chapter 8

  • When Nel collapses from soul deficiency, Harribel brings a tied up victim to feed to her.
    Ichigo: TATSUKI!
  • Shinji hits on Harribel, Sung-Sun, and Mila Rose, referring to each as his first love. It ends with him being squeezed by an angry Sung-Sun's snake tail.

Chapter 9

  • Omaeda asks for a server to sit with him. Soifon has Yumichika do it. Her evil grin and Omaeda's black rage cloud sell the moment.
  • Renji hits on Rukia... by which we mean Chappy in Rukia's gigai. It gets him slapped by the real Rukia.
    • Senna and Chappy use Nemu to bake a pie to give to Renji. Nemu treats the pie as though it were her baby, so Isane stops Senna from telling her that people are supposed to eat it.
      • Renji gets no breaks here. Reeling from being slapped by Rukia for hitting on Chappy, he takes out his... "frustrations" on the pie. Rukia comes back to apologize but finds this scene instead, so Renji gets punched this time. Then Urahara throws the pie in his face for defiling it, and then Nemu comes to ask of the whereabouts of her "child".
      (Nemu attacks Renji with drill hands)
  • The Shout-Out to the infamous Tsukihime doujinshi "That's Why I Assault Ren" by Hiroyuki.
  • Urahara's device for separating people from their Inner Hollows comes in the form of a Big Red Button. Naturally, Mashiro presses it.
  • The Visored's Inner Hollows.
    • Zangetsu is forcibly nicknamed Shirosaki because 'Zangetsu' sounds like an old man's name. He's frustrated that he just managed to get his own body and he can't even keep his own name.
    • Kensei's Hollow, Kyu Roku, is essentially a Hollow version of Mashiro. She's the one who nicknamed Zangetsu 'Shirosaki'.
    • Lisa's Hollow, Desdemona, is a total prude.
    • Hiyori's Hollow is a sweet, shy, Moe version of her, appropriately named Moeyori, who calls Hiyori 'sissy'.
    Urahara: You took the longest beating your Hollow and this is her...
    Hachi: I beat him with Kido.
    Ironstach: KI-DO? If that's wo-man speak for CHEAT-ING, then yes that is how you won our fight!!
    • Love's Hollow, Hate, is a stereotypical Otaku. Apparently Holo from Spice and Wolf is his waifu.
    • Rose's Hollow, Thorn, is a stereotypical moocher, and stoner.
    Rose: Oh god you smell like a skunk!
    Thorn: I know. Good stuff, right? By the way you guys aren't cops right??
    Rose: We are all affliated with Soul Society so yes we are pretty much cops.
    Thorn: Oh well uhhh… yeah I got hit by a skunk.
    Rose: You were just in my body! There are no skunks!
    Thorn: Then what was I smoking??
    • Mashiro's Hollow is Emperess Kuro, a classic Card-Carrying Villain. Her fights with Mashiro never last long because Mashiro causes her to get terrible headaches.
    • Shinji's Hollow Niji is flirty and has No Sense of Personal Space with Shinji.
  • The thingy that Urahara looks at when declaring the Inner Hollows to be opposites instead of evil is a coffee pot.

Chapter 10

  • Ulquiorra responds to Grimmjow's observation of Aizen with "Would you like to make that into a meal?" Grimmjow has to explain that he should only say that to customers. Grimmjow, of all people, teaching someone about customer service.

Chapter 11

  • With the restaurant shut down by Health Inspector Yamamoto, Yachiru decides to punish the rest of the Shinigami Women's Association. Nemu is sentenced to pies. By which we mean, eating one of the pies baked in her oven compartment (keep in mind that Nemu considers those pies to be her children). What follows is a hilarious/horrifying Shout-Out to Evangelion as Nemu savagely eats the pie.
  • Kenpachi Yachiru Unohana and her Shoulder Shota, Zaraki.
  • Kintama says the following when Tatsuki questions why the river beneath them is filled with wine instead of water: "Why would it?? You realize fish FUCK in it, right??"
  • Tatsuki's Healing Factor, as a byproduct, creates poisons in her body. In practical terms, every time she heals up, alcohol is introduced into her bloodstream. Fighting too long leaves her drunk.
  • Past!Nel and Isshin's meeting. He thinks she's a really lost Shinigami, and she thinks that he's an Arrancar. What follows is an amusing exercise in One Dialogue, Two Conversations where Nel believes Isshin is powerful enough to kill a Soul Reaper Captain and bloodthirsty enough to go right to Soul Society for more.
  • Aizen eventually reaches the level of (in)sanity where he makes sock puppets of Tousen and Gin to talk to. Keep in mind that the real ones are haunting him and witnessing every moment.
    • The sock puppets turned out to be vital in recreating the scene where Isshin saves Masaki from White. Though since Ichigo is playing White, there's a good chance he could die preserving his own existence. Complaining about this to Aizen proved to be futile.
  • When Past!Urahara is helping Ichigo get back to the present, Ichigo assumes he's going to be tricked into doing the Amazing Headband of Justice routine again... but Urahara has no idea what he's on about. Ichigo does the motions for the headband anyway, which makes Urahara and Yoruichi laugh hysterically and file this information for the future.
  • Ichigo and Aizen's trip to the past was a success... but the restaurant was burned down by Yamamoto in the new present, and Urahara got a massive payout for it. Ichigo realizes that the whole adventure was just an elaborate (and convoluted!) way to commit insurance fraud.
  • After Yamamoto takes Senna, Orihime and Nel discuss that someone getting kidnapped would be a big deal for everyone close to that person and not something that would go unaddressed for years, even after a Time Skip in the final chapter of the story. While this is happening, the Sternritter girls use an ice cream truck to kidnap Harribel.
  • The All Just a Dream reveal:
    • First, after all the time loops are closed, it starts snowing and a giant hand appears over Karakura Town. It turns out to be Wonderweiss, having imagined the events of the comic while playing with a snowglobe.
    • Second, Gin and Tousen are up to something, using an elaborate security monitor to watch out for intruders... except Tousen can't make use of any of it. Then Aizen wakes up.
    • Aizen finds himself back on his throne in Hueco Mundo, right after Orihime has fixed the Hogyoku. For a second, he thinks he may be able to use his foreknowledge to his advantage... and then he wakes up again.
    • Aizen finds himself back in prison, where Kyoraku has just finished telling him about the Quincy invasion. He breathes a sigh of relief, having finally snapped back to reality... and then Ghost Gin appears behind him.

How well does it match the trope?
