    This episode gave off a really big “Game Over” vibe. I thoroughly enjoyed it, mainly for reasons like the fact that this arc is seeing it’s more serious reality for the characters. Before, everything seemed a bit too shounen-conventional with the fights (see: easymode). It looked like they may have had some difficulty engaging the mascara-laden clowns which infested the area, but always came up on top. Now the difficulty’s been ramped up to Super Ninja Gaiden mode, and I think the gang’s feeling the sharp end of stick this time. Problem is, they only have 1 continue each.

    Ichigo hates having to cart women like that all the time.

    Quattro Espada sounds like a new Toyota hatchback

    Ulquiorra sure knows how to make friends, when I first looked at him, I just knew that this guy would be the social animal of Las Nachos. It’s bad enough that he looks like a clown having an identity crisis, that he is slowly trying to be as Goth as he possibly could. My theory is that he is a pissed off dead viking who never quite made it to Valhalla, it’s safe to assume that he is also pissed because half his viking horn helmet is lost somewhere. So he decides to make friends the Viking Clown way and tell Ichigo the equivalent of, “Hey man, so I heard Rukia totally fought to her death. What I am trying to say is, she’s reached her expiry date roflmao XD. Shit was so tight!”. Now, if you were Ichigo and you oh I don’t know happened to go through hell (er, heaven) and back to rescue your woman and you just realized you are going to have to do that shit All over again, I’d be feeling slightly irked (more like amazingly furious). Ichigo tries to evade a fight so he can play the magical calvary to swoop Rukia from her lack of anime airtime.

    In case you couldn’t tell - Ichigo’s kind of angry.

    Ulquiorra wouldn’t have that of course, he then tells Ichigo that he was the one responsible for luring Orihime here and essentially forcing the girl to see her friends go down like flies as each day passes. Ichigo now resembled that slightly crazy employee in wal-mart as the supervisor tells him, “Hey Jim, I’m going to have to let you go man…sorry”. You can just see Jim (Ichigo) going, “W-what do you mean let go? I’ve been here for like 7 years”. His eye is kind of twiching, his fists are rock hard and his mind is in the absolute fritz. That’s the kind of look Ichigo had by that point. Obviously Ichigo’s strategy is quite simple when dealing with a far superior enemy: Using no strategy whatsoever. He is however, full of brilliant ideas. Brilliant by the standards of an inanimate pencil sharpener. Ichigo decides that putting everything into one hit was the best thing since the wheel and powdered milk. Not even Goku was that stupid, and we know how stupid Goku is (King Kai bless his soul).

    This attack was very strong, yet looked like a squishy. Only Bleach could ever do that.

    The sense of scale

    What I was impressed with however, ladies and gentlemen, was the sheer volume of power he put into those two attacks. The first one is your typical Vaizard Bankai Getsuga wave, which ultiamtely results in a wall of black energy so large that even Ulquiorra’s arrogant one-handed shielding has him sweating bullets. A few seconds into the attack and Ulquiorra realizes that he is knee-deep in a shitstorm of reiatsu. So he does what is meant to be “awe-inspiring”, when he takes out his other hand from his pocket (Holy shit!!11one!!!). Wow, amazing, Jeez. I take my hands out from my pockets all the time (it’s a latent skill of mine), but then again, I don’t make a big deal about it. Then again, I don’t exactly look like Viking Goth Clown either. Ichigo, who sees this as a sign of weakness, decides Not to do what every sane outclassed fighter would do: Use this opportunity to get the hell out of there. No, he decides to hang around and actually allow Ulquiorra to recover just so he can try to finish of Ulquiorra with his Jelly-blob mess of an attack. I seriously imagined him making a Getsuga Tenshou equivalent of Cotton candy.

    Hey, now would be a good time for you to stop scratching yourself.

    XXXtreme Knitting!!!

    One thing good about Ichigo is the “All in a day’s work” look he puts out after a big attack. He very stoicly assumes that one super mega hit is going to take out a pissed off viking espada who missed the train to eternal merriment. He was about to pick up his Nell doll and scoot off to rescue hot bitches, when suddenly, guess who isn’t even bleeding? Ulquiorra’s clothes sure took a lot of damage though, something I am sure make-up isn’t going to be terribly pleased with. Ulquiorra then fires off a cero beam from his index finger, telling the viewers that his power level is so high, he doesn’t even need to try (and telling us that this arc is going to continue for a looong time). The next to happen is the killing off of the main hero. Basically, and I’m not shitting you here, Ulquiorra shoves his hand into Ichigo and kills him. Ichigo is now probably chatting with Rukia and Chad in the after-after-world. I am not sure where dead people go when they die, but I’m guessing it’s a pretty kickin’ place with monocles and crumpets.

    “….dude, this was a Esprit import from France, now you’ve wrecked it”

    “Welcome to Dead Heroes Land, population: You”

    It’s not nice to pick on someone…

    …Especially when their boobs outclass yours by at least 3 alphabets. I guess the two Whore-rancars, or “Whorrancars” for short just couldn’t stand it anymore. If there’s something Orihime can do without saying or batting an eye, is knock you out with those two bazookas. As far as I am concerned, Orihime’s been behaving herself as a prisoner in the Citadel of Boredom. She’s acted like a prisoner should, submissive, bored to tears, agonizing over her dead friends and also generally sulking around and making viewers feel like shit as we watch youtube videos and munch on twinkies. She’s been a good girl, but whorrancars don’t like it when girls look infinitely better and behave properly, so they have to go in and be the typical “wo-MAN” stereotype. The black haired one is probably looser than the rubber ring around my Paintball gun and the yellow haired one seems to have lost herself on the way to a fucking lesbian bar.

    How about, let’s play go fuck yourselves.

    Pretty sure Ori-princess-chan doesn’t want to play your AIDS-infested game.

    Go fuck yourselves bitches.

    I mean that literally too (Bring Lilinette back!), you have one of them which looks like a second without sexual penetration is going to drive her into humping the couch, and the other one has that manly aura which is probably seeking some kind of sexual relief so her pretty little face isn’t so far shoved up her own arse. Now, of course Orihime plays victim here, but she’s also stupid and responsible for that shit. I know Orihime has an excellent slapping hand and she should be able to use her shield powers. What she should have done was, shield herself, then slap the two whores back to the brothel from which they were spawned from. Maybe she’s too depressed or drained from watching her love interest die, I know that can put a person down at times (or all the time). With that said, the Black haired whorrancar proceeds to step on Orihime’s head. But the good news is, Bleach never allows such anger-generating moments to go on for long, these girls are probably going to get impaled somehow. And not in a pleasant way.

    Its easy to have a nice room, just don’t fornicate on every single corner of yours. Whore.

    I miss Lilinette already, she was hot and lovable. Bring her back, Haruhi, please.

    Young man! I said young man!

    It’s fun to stay in the Superfag Espada’s place, they have everything, for a screwed shinigami to enjoy, you can get yourself mopped by Fraccion and hang out with the Espada boys (I apologize for that). Renji’s putting up a good fight I’d say, people have often said that Renji was the next to get whacked and the entire team has to load from the last saved checkpoint. The thing I admire most about Renji is that whilst he has the capacity to get emotional, he is just pure blood and guts. He has a lot of gall and is like a stubborn stain for the enemy, no matter how hard you scrub or pour bleach all over, it just won’t let off. He’ll find some new way to piss you off and throw you out from your high horse. Which is exactly what he’s done with Pinkspada here. This guy seems to highlight any miniscule victory he achieves, such as making the Ottavan Espada move, he enjoys this victory thoroughly. Only to get his face crushed by Pinkspada’s army of hollow slaves.

    Pinkspada realizes pink wigs have just gone out of fashion.

    The monsters from Sesame street are more terrifying than these.

    The Quincy Supremacy

    Oh I know what you are thinking, isn’t it too convenient that as Renji’s about to get crushed by a giant hand, that he somehow gets his sword out in 0.251 seconds in order to cut and wound it? Well yes, it’s rather convenient. What’s even more convenient is that as the giant is wailing painfully, it gets shot in the hip by Ishida. Renji, who seems rather shocked that his spot of luck just grew to a deep puddle, is stunned, yet somehow relieved that reinforcements have arrived. I also enjoyed Ishida’s smug grin as he teases Renji on how much he failed to do any damage to anything so far. At least we’re reminded that Ishida can be a jerk at times, a really big one. Personally, I’m very much looking forward to see some Shinigami and Quincy tag-teaming, reminds me of the time Ichigo first met Ishida. There’ll be some rough and misunderstanding moments, but Ishida’s a good sport, and so is Renji. They’ll think of something, or you know, die like Ichigo, Rukia and Chad.

    “Whatssa madda huh Renji? can’t handle the heat? S’ok h’omes, Ishida DA man is here. Supaflyyy!”

    Cheers,

    1. Ichigo isnt dead. You can easily revive him with some dragonballs so who cares? But in any case, yes this episode is pretty good. The quality of the brief fight is indeed quite high, and hopefully it’ll stay that way. And good thing Ichigo doesnt take like 10 episodes to transform into hollow mode =]

    4. The dragonball problem does get on my nerves as well..as it takes the fun out of things..oh well….i wonder why they didnt show inoue getting beaten up like in the manga..


    5. […] Original post by Darkshaunz […]


    6. haha, Bleach will end next episode!!!

      seriously though, bleach should have ended long ago.


    7. Ichigo dies, Kenpachi is the new main character. Kubo agrees, don’t bother him about it.


    8. Goes to show you just how, despite the manga being better in many ways, I can’t for the life of me make out what those little ink drawings are supposed to be much of the time! Kube should use a thinner pen nib, or something. Ex: I initially thought Lilinette was a GUY. :O I guess that’s better, which means I was happier when I saw her in the show. :) This episode really did have great animation- check out the effects from Ichigo!

      One other great thing about the manga is there’s no censorship. We really do get to see Inoue get beat up right there on the panels, not some cut-away to the girls from the waist up. Look at her face after that really makes you feel ashamed from admiring her before, so I’d like to see how they render her scars in the next couple episodes.

    10. “Whorrancars”
      awesome


    11. lol! you are fucking awesome


    12. Glad youre back with your unique episode summaries! You were missed.

      As ill-advised as it may have been, I answered your call to creat really bad AMV’s. Yes, with zero knowledge & even less skill I have hashed together what could be termed an AMV. In that it has anime, music & video. Behold my creation! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lvc-kuple18


    13. @Caraniel: As per my promise, I will add your video to my entry. Great work though! compared to my birthed abomination to the wired world. I kind of enjoyed the soundtrack you used. Oh and Caraniel’s entry is based on ep. 162, so it’s very timely.

      @Regulars: Tabi Karasu, Inuhanyou, and Danny (and other random regulars), thanks for putting up with my “houdini disappeared for 2 months bullshit). Rets and I nearly cried like little girls when you guys came back a’knocking.

      Fuck you guys are really awesome. We are not worthy.


    14. Haven’t watched the eppie, but am still glad for the QUALITY F**KIN ANIMATION!

      Yeah, Bleach - So I watched “Kateikyoushi Hitman, Reborn!” and that was fun, Mafia (the crack kind, not The Godfather) and cool fights and no emo *sweet*

      Also plan on checking out “Bakumatsu Kikansetsu Irohanihoheto” - cause it has a long-ass name, and like “Gokusen” and stuff.

      Have you seen “Baccano!” - it’s wicked.

      Bleach…yeah, Bleach.

    16. Nice to meet you. It is smile.
      The blog of “Japan Animation mania” to introduce Anime of Japan was started.
      Please come to see at any time.
      And, please link to my site.
      It comes ..then…


    17. Ok Bleach obviously does not end, but that’s ok
      i have to disagree with you on Ulquiorra though,
      while he may appear goth, he can’t be a viking because he has no beard or accent and he doesn’t fight with an ax, and he can’t be a clown because clowns are supposed to be happy…
      yea…


    18. […] […]


    19. He can too fight with an ax. Ichigo was one of my favorite heros. Oh no :(


    20. ichigo could never die (forever) coz there’ll always be the backup regenerative or canceller character, in this case orihime. so far no anime or manga i’ve read tried to kill off the main character. wish they’d try one day, something like Superman perhaps.
