Episode 108 Discussion Thread

The end of the arc is so close we can figuratively taste it. How will it turn out?! In the last episode discussion I predicted I would have this lameness to say:

Shall I just cut and paste for the episode? Let's see!

Spoiler for synopsis:


Well I liked the episode a lot. Some of the themes that were developed at the end of the episode would have made the whole darn arc a lot more interesting if only the writers had thought of them before now.

Please do not discuss anything past episode 108, or else you risk a ban. Don't even post future episode titles. Even spoiler tags are no defense.

Episode 109 will not be airing on Christmas week. Expect it to air on 2007-01-04.

gotta disagree with you there, Sannin. I thought the ep was very predictable and that the whole "big" fight was more along the lines of a whimper then a bang. Also, I think the fight would have been better if they used some better fight music, they seriously chose the worse music to play. Eh, at least the arc is over and thats all that counts.

LOL, you started the post after I posted in ep 107 ~_~. Anyways, well, 108, even though was the final fight, was pretty much still another Bounto episode. Hichigo made a little appeareance, kinda disappointing though. Still no one knows about Hichigo's existence excpet for the few who fought against him. And of course when Hichigo controled Ichigo's body w/o transforming for a few seconds, he used his signature attack (so what Ichigo claims it to be), and of course Renji comments on it.

Meh, no hollow ichigo in the fight for the lose. Man i was hoping to see hollow ichigo and watch him start kicking ass but guess not oh wells. I'm glad to see the bounto arc friken finally end, it was only 40 episodes long lol...

Oh oh oh oh, who wants to bet that next week episode will be a recap!!! Then I bet we move onto another arc the episode after but it wont be a manga arc!! but something just as useless!!!

Heh, I wouldn't call the next manga arc all that useful...

And it don't look like the next ep will be a recap. If at all it'll be like ep63 and have an actual episode after the recap.

Bleh, i gues it was more or less ok, despite the fact it was predictible as hell. Tho it was nice to see they came up with a reason why Kariya couldn't heal...at least they didn't pull a Yoshi on us. I felt like banging my head against the keyboard once the useless trio appeared and wanted to rush ahead to "help" Ichigo....

Rukia gave us a nice speech with a quite interesting theme...to bad this will never be touched upon again, so it lacked any form of impact. Too little, too late. Oh well... it was not that bad. So, the next ep is useless, and hopefuly 110 gets us back on track. Meh

I dont know, I feel somewhat cheated after watching that last fight. It could have definately been better, considering they made us sit through 40 episodes of this filler crap.

at the beginning of the episode, when Kariya says "let me show u Mesners TRUE FORM!" i was just about ready to close my media player... or shoot myself...

whichever came first...

Thankfully, before i did either, they gave the explanation... and it wasnt as half assed as alot of this arc... so i decided to continue.

too bad they lightning animation was kinda bleh... I guess i just had higher hopes for the animation of the big fight...

I did enjoy the parallel they made between ichigo/kariya, but it was too little too late for it to make a difference... had they just gotten all the bounto flashbacks done with back in the human world, then they couldve introduced that as soon as they got to SS and met up with ran'tao... would've made more sense, no?

sooo... think Ran Tao will explain why he couldnt absorb spirit particles? or is this over already?... either way is fine... really!

Ran'Tao is in the preview so I suspect she'll explain it.

This eps, very good fighting scenes only negative about it is plot holes, how many fuckn powerups does ichigo gets for every damn fight.

And i dont like his intentions also, so its okay for him to interfere in other ppls fights but not okay for other shinigamies to get involve in his fight.....lame double standards.

lol..somethings were just too funny, like te whole Ichinose sword thing, I actually laughed.

Same with the sudden poof from Kariya.

Although it was interesting with the Hollow eyes thing.

And yeah the whole stuck between two worlds thing WAS so late..

The fillers started out decent and just went bleh lately, just want it to wrap up already after waiting 2 weeks...

LOL its not a new arc...its scenes from the movie ^_^ and hes called arthus btw...

well at last it has ended *phew* and i thought it was gonna drag on till next ep when it reached half way

the fighting was cool as hell...and im glad it didnt disappoint after waiting and sitting through all that crap from the previous eps...

but still kariya's death was pretty meaningless to the end...i would have helped if his development as a character was better than just "i was troubled as a child" ~ i just didnt get any meaning to his death at all and therefore can begin to feel anything as to why he did pretty much what he did ~

damit i wished he could have finnished his sentence before turning into dust T_T

Hichigo didnt really show up but he did help

well thats that...bring on the next boss! *rawr*

Ichigo did that against Byakuya also. It is basically the same power-up. It just happens that Ichigo has a crapload of reiastu. There is no plothole.

Someone should really fire the old man. He sits there, expects everything to be sealed and needs another captain to protect him.
