Yoruichi Shihoin Of ‘Bleach’ : A Woman in Charge
Yoruichi Shihoin is our Woman Crush Wednesday! She is another one of my loves. Talk about a powerful woman! Beautiful and deadly, Yoruichi is a lady that does what feels right to her while never sacrificing her morals. As a prime character in one of the most popular anime/manga series of all time, Yoruichi deserves respect because of her nobel position and strong fighting style.
Yoruichi Shihoin was born as a Princess of the noble Shihoin clan, she trained until she became it’s leader. Not stopping there, Yoruichi became Captain of the Second Company of the Gotei 13, the first woman to ever hold that position. Even though she is of noble birth, she doesn’t have time for all the fancy stuff. She insists that her protege call her by her first name, and while passing time with humans she enjoys transforming from her cat form back into herself just to tease people with her nudity (hey, Yoruichi Shihoin is comfortable in her own skin!).
Yoruichi trained with the likes of Byakuya Kuchiki, she is a formidable fighter, even having to face Soi Fong, her protege and eventual successor when she stepped down. Even then, she hadn’t fallen off the wagon, proving to still be a match for anyone who came against her.
Yoruichi Shihoin is one of the strongest fighters in the Soul Society, she created some of their most useful techniques such as Shunpo. She trained many other fighters, rising in rank and becoming more powerful and respected. However, staying loyal to her friend Kisuke Urahara is what caused her to leave the Gotei 13, her status, the entire Soul Society behind.
Powerful and deadly, intelligent and down to earth, Yoruichi Shihoin is most DEFINITELY one of my major WCW. Check out BLEACH and make her yours too!
