This is the third part of my favorite songs from Rock Musical Bleach, and this time I turned my attention to songs that tell a story. Three of them immediately came to mind: Tsuyosa to Egao Tabanetera, Tsuki yo Oshiete Kure, and Utoshi Yattsu.
Tsuyosa to Egao Tabanetera is the story of Rukia (the girl with the strip of hair across her face) and how she grew up in a "place for garbage" with her childhood friend Renji (the guy with spiky red hair and funny eyebrows), then was adopted into the royal Kuchiki family by Byakuya (the guy with white clips on his hair). Later on, she meets Ichigo (the guy with spiky orange hair) who changes her life completely as she turns his upside down.
These three men care about Rukia in their own way, and they each want to support her. Because of them, Rukia is inspired to live her life burning. This version of the song is from Rock Musical Bleach: The Live Bankai Show Code 002.
Tsuki yo Oshiete Kure is the story of Renji, Momo (the girl with a bun on her head), and Izuru (the guy with bangs covering his left eye). The three of them were good friends back when they were students in the Soul Reaper (Shinigami) Academy, now they are vice captains to different squads in the Soul Society. Here the three of them are in jail for different reasons and each is doing some serious soul searching, if you will. The song ends with the three of them breaking out of jail and Rukia being rescued from her confinement.
This version of the song is from Rock Musical Bleach: The All.
Utoshi Yattsu is the story of Ichigo and Rukia's first encounter and how they affected each other. It also tells of how Ichigo came to possess Shinigami powers, and why Rukia is guilty of a crime. Their constant bickering reminds me of 5-year old kids fighting, but Ichigo and Rukia look really good together, don't they? ;P
