I know, I was thinking that too. So he basically called Uruyu gay.

So did Ulq chop off Ichigo's horn because it was an eye for an eye kind of thing and he just got lucky or he knew it would stop ichigo's rampage.

Here's what I want to know. Was the cero from Ichi's perfect hollowfication form just a standard cero, or an improved variation of sorts? Because if his standard cero was able to consistently over power the espada's most powerful cero variation, I can't help but imagine how powerful a cero oscurus from Ichigo's new hollow form would be.

@ the preview segment - i'd always expected to see yammy's release coloured white.

i liked that episode a lot - i didn't mind the reused animation. what the anime does well is nicely flesh out some meaning that was lost in the original manga where kubo had to finish things quickly to move onto the next thing.

Is that really the end for Ulquiorra? He was one of the best antagonist this series had to offer. If that really is the end of him, and he does not come back from some pocket dimension somewhere, then it is a little sad. He would have made a great ally...

Break the mask, you kill the hollow

It was Orihime. Ulquiorra had a thing for her. He was fighting to keep her, even after Aizen discarded her. Her pleas to stop had no effect on Ichigo. Ichigo had already stabbed Ishida.
Ulquiorra was going to die and accepted his defeat like a "man". Moments before that, Ulquiorra was resigned to his death. He said "DO IT". When she screamed he suddenly sprung into action

Remember.
He'd already blocked Ichigo's GT earlier in the fight. Because he thought it would hit Orihime. He makes it clear it wasn't to save the other two. . Not knowing Ichigo can control where it hits at bankai. He would have only hit Loly and Menoly. Ulquiorra couldn't even keep his eyes on Ichigo while they were fighting. He was acting as if he didn't care they were abusing her. Yet he watched them the whole time.
Before he broke Ichigo's mask. He didn't have any fight left. He asked Ichigo to cut him down after that. So it couldn't be because he wanted to get back at him or suddenly had the desire to win. He'd already accepted his loss

Because Ichigo turned on his friend and nearly killed him. Ulquiorra feared for Orihime's safety. Ichigo's rampage wouldn't have bothered him otherwise. He's not a bleeding heart type.

He didn't know that the part of Ichigo's conciousness, remained (The chapter makes it clear that a little part of him was there). Had recognized Orihime as the person he was supposed to be saving. So she was the safest one out of all of them. Because neither Ichigo or Ulquiorra would have hurt her

I didn't actually watch the episode. I was actually checking your comments to see if I wanted to watch it now. Or see it when I awake.

I think it's both. BLEACH is full of those tit-for-tat maim scenes (mainly arms), but since the cero came outta the horns, it's only natural it goes off if they're broken.

I always thought it was frustrating that Aizen gave all of his espada a caja negacion, but the only one ever to use theirs was Grimjaw...but yeah this seems to be it for Ulq.
The episode started out stale, not because it was those three fighting, but because they did pretty much everything that was expected - the carabellas included, I just saw meatshield mooks yesterday in another anime. Anywhoz, the rest of the episode was pretty nice, Ichigo got a face of unconsciousness (or ultimate satisfaction) when his mask broke, Ulq finally got a heart...oright, and Ishida got stabbed. That's what you get when you try to look cooler than the main character in his moments of glory!
Omake was ridiculous, enough to make me laugh (particularly Isshin's "DOKAAAN!" and the fact that the place exploded o_0

Despite getting stabbed, Ishida looks more constipated that half-bleeding to death.

Uryuu doesn't know the meaning of a double-tap, though; You need a confirmation that dead is dead, not just settle on a flesh wound alone...That's probably why Yammi is still alive...

"I confirm a hit, sir."
"Confirm bodies, soldier!"

nope.
in fact it was a minor plot point early on to avoid damaging the mask because it would just reveal the face beneath, not kill it.

or he just saw that he had an opening and decided to kill ichigo before dieing himself.

actually, he did know. ichigo's "save her" mumbling and orihime's resulting freak out happened already.

well, that explains why you don't know what happened in the episode.

One of the benefits of being a manga reader is that I already know what happens.
Actually, I haven't been watching Bleach for a while now, I just read other people's comments and use the info I get from them to pretend like I've seen it.

well yeah, i already know whats gonna happen too, but, as we know, the anime sometimes changes some details.

then there are some people who have the details wrong compared to either version.

Great episode! I have a question though pertaining to the music. Right when Ulquiorra has his flashback moment some background music kicks in (at about 19mins into DB's sub). Anyone know the name of this musical piece? Thanks!

She couldn't undo the hole in Ichigo's chest, I think undo-ing turning to ash would be harder (though she did inexplicably healed Grimmjow's arm).

I think her thinking at the time was something like "I feel sorry for you but...IHATETHISPLACEBYE."

Orihime is going to have one more breakdown and pretty much reject everything that happened, then we'll get our slice of life anime that somehow turns out to be Full Metal Panic ;p
