Bleach Filler Arc is Done

Episode 189 :

Yes kids from next week the real Bleach is back, i.e the campaign vs Aizen. No more annoying Lurichiyo and her 2 gay Shinigami bodyguards and no more Amagai Shuusuke.

Yeah its about time

Yeah its about time

Its just the filler arc and I’m fedup having to cover my eyes and unapprove comments that contain spoilers from the manga, so this time I’ll spoil it for you 🙂

Ichigo beats Amagai, in that dramatic cliché move that’s been used since Rurouni Kenshin : they run into each other, then end up facing the opposite direction with their swords out some distance away from each other, then one suddenly drops and is “defeated”. That wasn’t enough to kill Amagai however, so Yoruichi and the other captains show up and pwn him. Not through fighting, but in the mind as they reveal the truth to him. Turns out Yamamoto only killed Amagai’s father out of self-defense, as he was driven mad by the Bakkoutou shit and actually attacked him first…so..Amagai’s basically an idiot. He then uses his sword to commit suicide, with his last scene shown above.

Now we have stuff to look forward too. Not to mention an upcoming movie, Bleach : Fade to Black- I Call Your Name coming out on December 13th. Here is the plot summary :

A mysterious reiatsu explosion occurs in the center of Seireitei in Soul Society, causing it to be destroyed. At the exact same time, a major change overwhelms Kuchiki Rukia, which leaves her losing something important inside. Urahara Kisuke sends Kurosaki Ichigo to Soul Society to investigate the disturbance. Upon reaching Seireitei, Ichigo is set upon and attacked by shinigamis, once allies, who have no memory of him and Rukia. Now alone and on the run, Ichigo must find the missing Rukia and uncover the cause of the mysterious incident before it’s too late.

Great. Now we just have to wait 400 days to see the subbed version of it : S

Bleach Fillers From Next Week – Enter Amagai Shuusuke

Yep. No more relevant content will be seen on the anime “Bleach” for quite some time. They’re going to introduce some lame looking new 3rd squad captain called Amagai Shuusuke in Episode 168 on April 23rd as mentioned before.

But, it was inevitable. The Hueco Mundo arc was one of the best, and ended beautifully with Ichigo destroying Grimmjow, holding out his hand to Inoue and telling her to come with him.

The only thing which is sort of weird, a minor plot hole if you will, throughout the entire arc is….why didn’t Aizen, Gin or Tousen just come out in Las Noches and kill Ichigo? Anyone of them easily can, and Inoue is central to their plans so the idea of him just being a unworthy challenge not posing any serious threat to them is moot.

But anyway, when you’re badass enough to stifle people just by your presence, you can afford to do illogical shit.

The fillers I guess won’t be too bad. At least the production crew can go bananas over putting in all the shit that wasted our time for the past few months in entire episodes rather than just stealing 5 minutes of each episode that actually had some excitement. What worries me is the length of this “filler season”..we all know how painfully long the Bounto arc was : 44 episodes, and now with all the work of introd

ucing new captains and getting the audience back in touch with seemingly discarded characters like Kon, etc…will this last until the end of the year?..One of the final shots of episode 167 dims the hopes of many fans in getting the viewing of the fillers over with ASAP. Nel actually said “Me and my buddies won’t be around for a while because the higher-ups said so

How long is this “while” going to be? Well, we can only wait and see, and hope Amagai Shuusuke, Matsumoto’s boobs and the countdown to the release of the subbed 3rd Bleach movie, “Diamond Dust Rebellion” keep us entertained in the meantime..
