Shunsui Kyoraku is another one of Bleach’s funny, snarky characters. And one with more sense of humor than most.
Shunsui appears to be kinder and dumber than he is, but he’s sneaky, smart, and a lot stronger than he lets on because of his laid back personality.
Still, he’s wise and experienced. And that shows in his quotes on certain subjects relating to life.
Whether it’s his entertaining side or his more serious side, these quotes are the best from Bleach!
