I'm pretty sure the Ichigo/Ulquiorra fight should continue pretty soon. I mean what else is there to show in the zanpakuto arc? Would they continue with the Amagai timeline? I don't think so.

Where's the tension and suspense? The entertainment factor is what separates good and bad filler. If it's actually entertaining and makes me want to watch it, it's good filler. If I'm watching it just because I feel I have to to remain faithful to the show (e.g. Naruto filler from Part I), then it's bad.
I agree to an extent. Shows about nothing ARE entertaining to an extent(Seinfeld, anyone?). Some would consider them "true fillers", in between story arcs and whatnot. IMO though, I find it too compromising for a fictional world's potential for everything to be jumbled together into arc and stand-alone episodes. If this were more realistic, there'd be tons of other factors in a "story arc", like say a random guy mugging a main character. Shit happens, but stories tend to ignore the outside world for the story at hand.

And I'm starting to ramble

Really? How'd that happen?

Well, I don't think they would continue those arcs. I didn't mean to imply that. I was only stating that from an entertainment perspective, those filler arcs were actually worth watching. That is, I wouldn't skip them, because they were enjoyable in their own right. Like the Bount arc. Guess what? Ririn, Noba, and Kuroudo (our little Bount-sensor friends ) are still in the series sometimes when we see Urahara's shop, despite the fact that they are anime-only, and filler-original characters to boot.
Spoiler for A brief aside...:


And in Naruto, there's been a ton of ret-conning lately in the anime to try and explain the filler with Utakata, not to mention the jinchuuriki and bijuu in general. While they weren't bad, the filler didn't turn out to be as much of a gaiden as I had originally hoped, that's all. In my opinion, they shouldn't bother trying to explain it because as far as I'm concerned continuity flew out the window a long time ago with any kind of filler episodes.

Oh, that's nice to hear. I've been both looking forward to and dreading the upcoming fight.

Ugh. I hate the dub names "Noba" and "Kuroudo". And I'm usually tolerant of dubs. They'll always be Nova and Cloud to me. Sounds less Engrish.

It IS better when anime originals are included in the anime's main timeline though. Makes more of a "complete" story.

Nothing wrong with retconning, IMO. As long as it's done right. I haven't seen Naruto since Cartoon Network stopped airing it though. D=

I agree, that's the reason I kind of like the Bount arc (even though I only watched the last half ). It made it seem like Aizen spent awhile in HM preparing for the attack/practicing saying just as planned in front his mirror.

Pretty sure it was already explained just a few posts up.

I only spelled them that way because that's the way it's spelled on the Bleach wiki. Personally I don't like Engrish either, but I wasn't sure if Nova and Claude were their proper names or just how DB translated it at the time. It's hard to tell with katakana sometimes.

Time to start discussion on the upcoming opening music and ending since filler ends this week and we get new OP/ED NEXT WEEK!!

Opening song:

Its going to be sung by Miwa, but the name of the song hasnt been announced yet. (However if you listen to her "Dont cry anymore" song, you might get some type of idea what it will sound like)

Ending song:

'Stay Beautiful' -Diggy Mo:

^ we probably shouldn't be discussing them in the Q & A thread, though.

Question: When is Bleach Ending?

Yeah, I know. I am mastering in Jackass with a doctorate degree in sarcasm. Couldn't help but ask that though. When I become old and decrepit I'm going to tell my grand children (If?) about the never ending anime called Bleach, then I'll change it to the channel it's usually on, and then there will be a commercial saying "Tite Kubo passed away, no more Bleach."

Then i'll die from surprise that it actually ended. Hazzah!

random question came to mind after switching on cartoon network bleach for noise:

since most dubs bastardize honorifics, what is the dub version of "KUROSAKI-KUUUUUUUUUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"?

I've watched up to about 135 of the dub, and all I've heard Orihime call him was "Ichigo".

Spoiler for Reasoning/possible manga spoilers:


Anyhow, I would err on the side of "heart" since ch 317 also bears the title "Six Hearts Will Beat As One". Continuing the theme then, Ulquiorra is talking about the heart. No idea as to why the subbers decided to use soul - perhaps because the idea of the soul is abstract it fit will with the point of emotion being abstract. Who knows.

the sub translation of that line is even more dubious when you consider that they translated the same word to heart when orihime says it earlier in the same episode.

also, we were given a set up to the abstract heart idea with rukia's flashbacks with kaien.

Fillers ended last week. I mean they started the Ichigo vs Ulquiorra fight at the end of that episode.

Unless they are going back to fillers after the one episode... Then that's just annoying.
