The anime team must agree with me because they didn't even let him fight. Atleast the incredibly annoying doll trio had some purpose in the arc. Chad did nothing and in my eyes will always be seen as a filler character.

Now on to the Kariya fight. I must agree with the few who compared this to the Byakuya/Ichigo fight. I too can see alot of re-used scenes, but I did like the "you suck" line from Hichigo, hes so badass, I can't wait for the manga to start again.

I didn't really like the bount arc very much (because the bount don't really fit in my view of the Bleach universe and because of the sometimes crappy quality and because of plotholes... but not because it's filler) but I don't hold anything against fillers in principle.

Yeah, you see his zanpakutou drop and stick into the ground when Kariya launches him. You never see him die though, so its possible that he is still barely clinging onto life buried somewhere in the battlefield. Although you also see the zanpakutou distort and dissapear after it absorbs all of Kariya's attack, so its hard to say.

Perhaps it was like a shell/remnant. It seemed to break up pretty easily from Kariya's blast. So perhaps it was destined to disappear one way of the other, it just took it's time doing it.

Either that or Ichinose pulled another 'I'm secretly not dead' on us again.

i don't feel cheated after watching that last fight. Kariya's last words were scary, as in he is just a future version of what Ichigo could become. i think for a while, Ichigo looked at himself there in the mirror. and its very true! if he becomes that powerful, will his friends slowly fade away because of being scared of his power.
considering they made a point of it, and the Hollow Saga is coming up. it made us think seriously about it. for that last part, it was worth the 40 fillers alone.

All I'm going to say is about freaking time, and no I don't mean the fact that the arc ended, but it's been forveer and a half since i've seen a Bleach episode this good. The way Byakuya appeared would have made me cheer like a fangirl, if i was a girl, or a fan of him for that matter, but it was still awesome! And yeh, recylcled animations all over the place, but hell they could've choosen worse scenes to copy.

Animation returned to standard and acceptable norm, that's for sure.

We have a decent sword clash between Ichigo and Kariya, followed afterwards with a nice power-up among the two.

I cannot stop reflecting about Rukia's speech, concerning how Ichigo carries on the burden between having Shinigami powers and living as a normal human, and Kariya's speech, commenting to him (Ichigo) the cruel truth how people ostracize others out of fear due to the latter possessing a different nature from that one of the group.
It felt to me that those messages are a preclude for the misfortunes befalling Ichigo's dual nature in the next arc, that comes from the manga.

I'm not certain if Kariya going dust in a blink of an eye was an anti-climac conclusion or that effect was indeed effective on the viewer as he leaves before finishing his sentence.

This was a really good episode. And tons of anime put all their talk in the final episode anyways.

I'm expecting another filler arc - there's simply not enough manga material to work with (70 chapters? We'll zoom by that and the ones following it in 40 episodes).

his body couldnt contain the energy from joukaisho.

its funny, the reason he died was because he had to use so much of it to fight off Ichigo that he destroyed himself...

for once, Ichigo spamming his reiatsu wasnt a totally retarded thing to do!

I've got a question. If I remember correctly, isn't there one Bounto still alive? I am talking about the one that doll is a metal spider. He didn't die right? Although Kariya tried to kill him.

Just to clarify:
"Messer" is the German term for "knife" it's not specifically a term for "table knife".
"Messer" is used for all kinds of knives including combat knives. It's defined as a handle with a one-edged blade.
In fact the English term "knife" is derived from the Middle High German term "kneip".
also note,
Messerschmitt, (Messer - schmitt)
is the name of german fighter planes during the 2nd world war

It wasn't 'too strong' he was in a weakened state when he started to draw off of it when he ran out of spirit energy and his body couldn't contain its power anymore. The same thing sort of happened to Koga when towards the end of his fight with Hitsugaya, he absorbed a large amount of spirit particles to heal himself but he wasn't able to contain the amount he absorbed. After the fight ends, Daruku's core crumbles. If I remember correctly the Bounto are linked with their dolls if one dies, the other does as well. So just because we didn't see him turn to dust like all the Bounto do when they die, doesn't mean he isn't dead.

As far as Ichinose goes, well he could very well be alive because as you know they don't die the same way a Bounto or Hollow does, as you saw with Kaien, they don't go turn to dust, or dissolve after death, they leave a corpse. You also see the same when Aizen faked his death.

I hope the new modsouls stay. I mean I know that the next arc is based off of the manga, but they could still be in Don Kanonji-ish episodes that take short breaks from the plot... right?



...though Ran Tao will probably take them or something stupid like that
