♥My message to anyone who hates Orihime:
Spoiler Alert! Click to show or hide
Okay people! Here it is! My challenge to all Orihime haters out there! Brace yourselves ^o^
I challenge you guys to watch these AMVs, as well as read what the AMV artist writes about each video, and about the characters involved (you find this by clicking “more info” on the right hand side of the video). I really, really stress the importance of reading his descriptions and rants! Also, please pay attention to every word of the songs; they are directly related to what's going on in the AMV. Finally, please watch with an open mind, and an open heart ♥*
These are about Orihime & Ichigo, or moreso Orihime’s feelings towards Ichigo. If you are absolutely repulsed by Orihime’s feelings towards Ichigo and watch these videos, please, please, please don‘t write anything rude (not that I‘m expecting you guys to, just asking you not to lol) So I‘m not trying to make you guys into IchiHime supporters, just trying to clarify that Orihime truly does love him, no matter how unaware of her Ichigo is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zEt4M0PBVV0: When You Sleep http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LuPWoK1UCrc: Possession
“The point is that so many of us have been in her shoes and fallen in love with someone that has no idea we're there. A lot of people know what it feels like when you just CAN'T put something in to words.” These aren’t IchiHime per say, but the video along with his little rant thingy do clarify a lot of the misconceptions about Orihime’s feelings towards Ichigo.
Just a warning; a lot of these videos have moments that focus on Ichigo. This is not because Northstar1109 supports IchiHime, but because Ichigo plays a huge part in Orihime’s life. He (Northstar1109) seems to be the most unbiased Bleach lover in existence. As he wrote in one of his videos, “I don't really believe in making Ichihime videos so to speak, as I don't like giving off the impression that he knows how she feels and is madly in love with her but at the same time I dont want it looking like he wouldn't care even if he did.” and “Whilst i honestly don't believe her love for Ichigo defines her as a character (like many, many crush girls from other anime shows) it is a very important part.” He is also always very pro Rukia & Orihime, just like Tite Kubo intended it to be; best friends, not enemies. I’m trying to not put too much of my own input in here, but I just really want you guys to be able to see how complex this character really is. She has gone through so much at such a young age, just as Ichigo, Uryuu, Sado and almost all the other characters have. I think one main thing that bugs a lot of people is how human she really is; she gets jealous, has low self-esteem, doubts herself, loves someone who doesn't love her, and so on. She is easy to relate to, and maybe that’s why so many people hate her; a lot of the time (well at least for me ^-^) we look to anime to distract us from our every day lives, not have reality thrown back in our faces lol.. Overall, my point of this was not to turn you guys into Hime worshippers (lol), just to get you to understand her a little more, see how much inner turmoil she truly goes through, see that her friends can relate to her, and that they don’t hate her. And if we’re lucky, maybe lessen your hatred of Orihime!
So, sorry if I’ve bored you to death! A request of mine; if you get annoyed by these or they make you angry or anything, I would truly appreciate it if you guys didn’t leave any mean or disapproving comments on Northstar1109’s videos.. if you want to vent your frustrations on anyone, let it be me please! I’m the one that put you up to this horrendous task ^o^
one last p.s. If you hate Orihime, I don't hate you! I don't think that hatred for one character should seperate people.. there's enough hatred in the world, so I don't think we should dislike each other just because one of us likes/dislikes a certain character. Merci! Thank You! Arigatō! ♥
Character Outline Inoue Orihime has long orange-brown hair which she wears with the bangs behind her ears and hairpins. She does not remove her hairpins, except to sleep (she is seen without them in episode 64 when she wakes up), as they are worn in memory of her brother, while her hair is worn long in honor of the promise Tatsuki Arisawa once made to protect her. Her large breasts are occasionally made the subject of jokes in the series. She also has an amazingly hard head, which has injured Uryū, Chad, and Ichigo. The only person who has been able to damage her head has been Yachiru Kusajishi in a comical moment when she is riding on Kenpachi Zaraki's shoulders. Orihime has brown eyes in color pictures of the manga, but gray eyes in the anime.

Orihime is friendly, humorous in her own way, sensitive, and kind. She comes off as naive and rather clueless, which is at odds with her exceptionally high marks in school. Apparently, she is hopeless when it comes to technology. One of the members of the Handicrafts' Club remarks that she is not smart enough to use a cell phone, which is why she does not have one. Additionally, according to Tatsuki, Orihime has the fighting skill of a black belt, however, in the English dubbed version she says Orihime is at the skill of a yellow belt. Her cooking style can be described as very creative, more often strange to the point that side from Rangiku Matsumoto and possibly Tessai Tsukabishi no one would think it delectable, and is one of the running jokes in the series. Her favorite food in particular is red bean paste, and she likes putting butter on sweet potatoes. Orihime has a tendency to rush into situations without thinking, sometimes leading to embarrassing consequences. At one point, the schoolgirls ask Rukia if she has feelings for Ichigo. When Rukia denies any such thing, Orihime is disappointed that Rukia does not share her sentiments, because if she had, then it would be two girls against one boy and therefore the girls "team" would win, which makes no sense. She also tends to have an overactive imagination and gets carried away thinking of implausible scenarios, such as portraying herself as a futuristic and apparently highly destructive robot in an assignment asking "How do you see yourself in the future?", when the question refers to what occupation one wishes or believes they will have.
Orihime has also demonstrated that she is perceptive, mostly when it comes to Ichigo Kurosaki. She has a crush with Ichigo,and later falls in love with him, and in both the manga and anime her feelings only become more evident as time goes on. She has revealed these feelings both to Rangiku Matsumoto and to Ichigo himself, though he was asleep at the time. She also has the uncanny ability to detect Ichigo by scent and sense his spiritual pressure, even when masked by the vizard. Through her expanding role in the manga, Orihime has become a more complex character than her earlier archetype suggested. Where Orihime was more happy and goofy at the start of the series, later arcs deal with her feelings of inadequacy and inner turmoils. She also functions as a second female lead after the Soul Society arc, which was recognized when her character was featured along with female leads from other Weekly Shonen Jump series on a special Shonen Jump cover.
This group is in no way anti-Rukia. Orihime and Rukia are nakama, and they both care a lot for each other. Therefore, we should love both of them! But if you don't (which is completely fine lol) no spamming or hateful/spiteful messages about either one please! Thank you^__^
** Orihime's power manifests itself as the Shun Shun Rikka (lit. Six Flowers of the Hibiscus Shield; Six Princess Shielding Flowers in the English anime), six fairy-like creatures that reside in her hair-clips (shaped like six-petaled flowers, each fairy is two points on a given clip) when inactive. Through various combinations of the six fairies, Orihime has the power to reject fate by denying or undoing events in various forms. This power can be used for attack, defense, or healing (depending on the combination). Orihime's mood directly influences the effectiveness of her powers. Feelings like doubt or worry make them weaker, while conviction makes them stronger. At their height, her powers resemble those of a deity in strength. Curiously, Orihime's spiritual energy and powers resemble those of the vizard Hachigen Ushōda (who even compared her Shun Shun Rikka to a zanpakutō). Orihime mainly functions in a healing capacity, due to the nature of her powers. Despite her ability to inflict lethal damage, she is a pacifist and will only harm opponents to save someone's life.
Appearances outside of Bleach Orihime as The Loituma Girl. Her character has gained additional fame even among non-fans thanks to a short looped animation of Orihime twirling a "leek" (specifically, a negi, or Welsh onion) played to Ievan Polkka. Known as the Loituma Girl, the four frames used in the flash cartoon were taken from the second episode in the anime. ^If you want to watch this, go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WNDh_tFIHn4
