i don't think aizen cares...that's the feeling i get. I'm pretty sure he could've avoided it? But then again, yama-jii is the head of all of them, so i wouldn't be surprised if that was something really hard to break out of, no matter how strong you are. idk :X

The OP dance part is a response to the naruto ED counterpart, they had to do something!

Sadly for them Naruto had it much better.

The opening when Rukia and Inoue were together was really slutty

Anyway not much happening in this episode.. except buildup for what seems to be the fight next episode.

firstly I wouldn't underestimate Yamamoto

then I would listen to what Aizen said.. imo he could break free(although this should need at least some effort) if he wants to

poor writing: Soul Society discussing the best strategy with the enemy in sight that's something you should do before you enter the battlefield

Finally! Finally, the real stuff is back again...
(...even though TBTP was great, I am so happy we're back to the present)
Great episode.

1) Who is the girl in the opening at 0:51?
2) Yachiru in the opening was mega-kawai (but then she usually is)

I really love both OD and ED - don't really care wether those in them act in character or not. The OD isn't canon - that is, isn't happening, anyway. So let them act weird/crazy/ sexy whatever. The important thing is, the song is good and the animation doesn't suck.
And I did enjoy both the music and the visual style of the new OD and ED.


Questions:
How come that now everbody can fly/levitate (Karakura Town scene)?
How can the Exequias be defeated by falling down if they -just a second before- were flying around??

Why did Ichi "waste" his Getsuga Tenshou on the two nameless Hollows, and then not use it on the Exequias? That would have taken care of their crowding...

Why didn't this Shinigami E...(can't remember his name - from episode 8 or so) send the girl-ghost to SS? Come on, the area must be swarming with Hollows.

Ok, so this enormous spillage of reiatsu is destroying those hollows just by being exposed - yet, neither the shinigami nor the girl seem to be affected??
And we know i.e. from the SS arc that Ichi and others are in fact very much affected by someone else's reiatsu.

Aizen letting himself be trapped inside the wall of fire...and saying they'll win without lifting a finger.
I have no idea what exactly he's talking about but I smell a " I planned it this exact way all along" coming...

And anyway... him sending his troops into the fight would very much count as "having lifted a finger".

For a short moment, I let myself hope, Yamamoto's attack would end all the hollows, arrancars and traitors. Just burn them and go home.
That would have been soooo sweet.


And please, what the frakk is Ulqui talking about with Orihime? Is he seriously saying there is no "soul" when everyone (even 'Hime) knows that there is?
Hello! Soul Society ... Ring a bell? (His "if I rip you open, will I find this soul" speech - lame)
I realize he's trying to frighten Hime, but he's not really expecting THAT to work.
He should know by now that threatening to hurt OTHERS will frighten Hime more than anything.

there was no Getsuga Tenshou in the manga(he tried to use it but Exequias-spam stopped him) and he just cut through those normal hollows, same with the too-lazy-to-do-a-soul-burial Shinigami,.. and every translation I read used "heart" instead of "soul"

However insignificant as this may seem it is actually quite vital so remember it well later on :P

I pretty much asked most of this too, in the manga Zangetsu stated they fly by concentrating reiatsu on their feet, but death by fall is really lame in bleach...anyway, just write these things off as trivial, can't do anything about it.
Aizen's minions fighting doesn't mean he's doing anything, he's just sitting around in flames, so if they win for him he won't have lifted a finger. I just hope the fights actually start with the next ep and don't make it an intro for every new villain.

I agree with you there, I like Velonica a lot more.

The episode was all talking, and introducing whats about to happen the animation quality went through the roof. good episode for the reunion oh everyone who was either dead or on the verge of being dead. and the ending was hilarious with Renji and Chad screaming xD

I found the dance to be odd too. Matsumoto I found to be the most out of place she just seemed to be the filler of the three because one she's nowhere near as relevant as Orihime or Rukia, and also she hardly even did anything. I guess walking and getting wind blown in your face counts as dancing.

I really liked the episode. The first part was well done setting everything up nicely on that side of things. The second part was great with the added filler setting everything up for whats to come in HM. I like setup episodes if done well, not as much as the fights, but I still like them.

Wow , no one happy with the OP. I guess I'm the only person content enough with Inoue shaking what her mama gave her and Rukia doing something that would actually appeal to a male.

Maybe I should replace 'content' with 'shallow'

Though I love Inoue to death, Bachikoi(Naruto ED) was waaay better IMO. In terms of both song and animation.

I liked the new OP. Maybe not the song, but the design. It hearkens back to Astrix, Op #1 in its designs. It was that original style that got me hooked in the first place!
