Wow so much to say but I don't have the time. Anyway first half was weird with bizarro art. The story actually became alot better and definately looking forward to the vampires now . The second half had more or less better animation and usual bleach style. The surprise at the end was extra nice and now those muppets in the ED make sense. Not as much comedy as I had hoped but the 2 extra bits at the end are golden. Ukitate using the oldest pedo trick in the book .

Now this is a surprise I didn't figure out or expect.

Spoiler:


Those kinds of surprises may be enough to quench the dissatisfaction of the filler complainers.

So those little games did serve a purpose, after all.

But didn't anyone else, except for Omniscient, overlooked....

Quick post before I use the door.

Bleach is back for the most part of the episode. Bleach-standard animation is defined in the 2nd half of the episode. The character design, the pacing of the story, the art.. all of those are at a huge improvement compared to the last 3 episodes. All those petty delaying tactics were probably used to make the time to animate this episode. Most of the grand animation can be seen in the 2nd half of the episode, the kind of animation that was becoming such a norm before the filler arc started.

Finally, the story and it's pacing was like Bleach! The story actually evoked a sense of mystery in some part and NO CURSED, LAME REPETITIVENESS ( except for Ichigo trying the Bankai twice) and a bit of instant flashback scene in the 2nd half that was shown in the first half of the episode. The BGM in two parts was fantastic i.e.
Spoiler:
and another little score of the piano and the violin in sync.

And finally, Rukia is BACK!!! One can tell when she assumes that tone of speaking to Ichigo when they are in public! She uses that tone of conversation in the next episode preview

See you folks tomorrow. Btw, Bleach is back, or at least, for this episode.

Yay, ppl can now STFU about this arc, unless they start suffering from withdrawal symptoms from lack of complaining

Geh! Rukia back this early? I'm kinda hoping this Rukia doesn't turn out to be the genuine article...

Wow, this is getting more and more promising... maybe i should start watching these episodes soon (after my exams). I do find that fillers generally dub down the strength of characters and make it seem like everyone got like much weaker from the previous arc, but maybe this won't be too bad a case. Even though Ichigo can't do bankai, it's better than being able to do it and being beaten. I do wish that Shunpo would come much more into play... that's a cool move.

Do I observe some form of pederasty between Ukitake and Hitsugaya?

Joking aside, Ukitake really shines as a kind guy. (Is he gay?) I know he's among the most popular in his batch (as shown before) because of his devoted yet gentle heart, but doesn't anyone questions his inability to score a wife?

I mean, if people had a personality like Ukitake and had a face as great as him, (transposed into real life, of course) wouldn't a lot of girls run to him?

Just a queer thought ... maybe he IS pederastic - I don't know.

As can be seen in my avatar, I do like him as a person.

Man, this is anime/manga. NO-ONE has, has had, or can have a normal relationship with another character. It's impossible. On the plus side, it's an episode of 'alternative story arc' which I definitately enjoyed.

Not impossible really...but I definitely agree with no one can have a normal relationship. If you think about it, most of the relationships in Bleach could be all kinds of sick. With a few exceptions. (Although I hope I know what you are talking about because then...this post is beyond silly.)

That's why Bleach is one of the best kind of crack. It is funny as hell when you think about it...

Oh and Ukitate is NO phedopile. -_- Don't indulged me. What he does like is Hitsugaya. A lot. XDDD Mwhaha. Him on the kinks with one young person doesn't automatically make him a phedo right? Or am I confused again?

Ukitake's probably thinking "Wow, he looks just like me at that age! Same impossibly white hair, same high spirit energy, same smooth peachy skin- *coughcough* er, I mean, I might as well make sure he's doing alright <_< >_>"

Pederasty was a classy act in Ancient Greece ... maybe it also is in Soul Society?

I mean, in exchange for sexual favors, the adolescent learns a lot from the old guy. Maybe Hitsugaya learnt how to do 'bankai' with him...
