THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
I gotta say that the op is pretty good; it must be all the colors and effects going on.
Then we have the ed that lacks all of that.

Yuzu is so adorable.

I loved this episode! I cant wait for the next one! Im enjoying this arc so much in the manga I enjoy it as well in the anime, I loved the new opening and ending, Anyone notice how the new opening is like a "new" version of the first opening by orange range?

Opening was great. Episode was meh. Not that exciting, just a few laughs and such. And the ending was okay. Oh well, next one looks better. :p

I have to say, I'm digging the new op. A lot. This episode was alright, but it made me sad D: Idk, leave it to me to be a softie but I'm still sad Ichigo lost his ability to see ghosts and stuff. If he only lost his powers, that I can deal with, but he can't see any ghosts or people from Soul Society D: It'll take me a while to move on. I miss Rukia too much and the fact that the keep showing her without actually SHOWING her to Ichigo bugs me. Baaah. If he can't see her no one should xD LOL
Over all this episode was alright. Nothing much happened, but it's understandable cause they're just situating the setting and back story now.

Tatsuki's hair made me rofl.
For some reason it reminded me of the butterfly Aizen hair LOL.

Orihime has really powered up in these 17 months, damn.
Tatsuki has a delicious mullet.
Funny home life as usual.
Whoring himself out to clubs at school.
Orihime jumping out of windows.
Mysterious group of people who know about Ichigo to get the next arc moving......none of us saw that one coming.
Did I mention Orihime has powered up during the timeskip?


Oh, and that opening....Star Driver?

Been so long since we've had school life in Bleach that it was kinda refreshing and nostalgic at the same time. Didn't expect Ichigo to be a rent-a-jock, but why not put all that training to use? LOL. Interesting new characters. Can't wait to learn more about them. I love Scandal and the new OP is fine, but I really enjoyed the new ED by Aimer.

Ginjo looks different in the anime compared to the manga, eh? Surprisingly, Riruka sounds less irritating from what I expected. o.0

Considering this is the first episode of a new arc altogether, it is goddamned boring when compared to episode 1. But the first few minutes made me feel sad for Ichigo, that he kinda lost a big part of himself.

In regards to the OP and ED, the OP by Scandal felt normal after the epic OP by Vivid.. BUT doesnt it seem like the producers of Bleach are going for soothing EPs? ;)

It's like Bleach reset, I like these episodes more than most of the episodes in bleach. It also seems to me that they increased the budget loads after the filler arc, it looks very good at points.

I'm actually interested in Bleach again, fancy that.

I liked the opening where the first 30 seconds make you feel like youre watching a high school drama. Digging the new looks. Of course they didn't do anything radical, but at'least they changed something. Except Tatsuki's hair. She is what, second strongest in whatever martial arts she's into, and she has long hair.
Soul reapers can get away with long hairs, but not real life martial artists.

Yuzu was funny, Ichigo kicking ass was funny, Ichigo selling himself to the highest bidder was the biggest funny. Orhihime's bit was funny but too long.

New guys on the hood. Friends or foes? Only time will tell.
Wonder how Kubo Tite is going to explain them in to the lore, but he's made so many plotholes i don't think he would care. And neither do i frankly, since the main battles were epic and had a lot of budget.

And yes. Orihime's assets are bigger now. Had to GIS and compare.

Loved it! Ichigo was awesome! tho its all still sad.
the new OP and ED where good! Love them both! the ED shows Rukia watching over everyone and i was starting to tear up. ;_;

the art at the start of the eisode got me so excited! its soo good! :D
cant wait for more! :3
“I have a girl I love named Sakura. Well actually, it’s one-sided on my part. Sakura is totally in love with a guy named Sasuke. She tries so hard, chasing after him and trying to win his love. When she’s at it, her smile is the cutest thing. There’s no explaining it. Before I realized it, I was in love with her. I would never try to force her to love me. I’d be no different from that guy just now if I did. So I made up my mind. In the same way that Sakura tries so hard to win Sasuke over, I’m going to do my best to win Sakura over.”

I really don't understand Tatsuki's appeal at all, she's just a cliche uberviolent sports girl. Yet Bleach fans seem to regard her as their favorite female of the group (or the least useless one anyway). She needs to stop beating up and nagging on 'Hime tho, she's more than strong enough to survive a fall from that height even if she hadn't slid down the pole. And goddess does that new haircut look stupid. Bitch is fuglier than ever. Cutting her out of the series altogether would be preferable.

... Sorry, I'd been enjoying Bleach's absence of my least favorite side character, and since there's over 9000 of them that's saying a lot.

On the upside, Yuzu was delicious in her seifuku and adorable with her bro-con comments. She called him a perv but at least he did notice her outfit ;) And Orihime's boobs have indeed gotten even bigger, to which I say awesome :)

Not a whole lotta action but it set up the new arc pretty well. I know almost all of what's going to happen in this arc (I stopped reading just before the apparent conclusion so as not to completely spoil myself), and am looking forward to seeing the new story animated. :)

4/5

This arc is shaping up to be awesome (prays for so fillers anytime soon). Not much I can say since I'm up to date on the manga so I know how it will go just need to see how well its animated :D

Well, what can you expect. It wasn't too great when reading the manga but they made it somewhat decent in the anime.

the highlight for me was when they fastforwarded all the bleach episode banners during the OP (oh and the OP itself was nice too, tho I'm used for better ones from Bleach but that's cool...)

I could barely recognize Ichigo's sisters. I'm not sure how I feel about redoing all the character designs. I guess it will be interesting to see how all the Soul Reapers are redrawn.

Anyone else notice in the ED those mod souls from the Bount arc? That brings back memories.

Oh, hai Bleach, it's been a while.

Thought ginjo would sound a wee bit more badass. And goddamn, that hair on tatsuki caught me off guard... Hidden Aizen-shipper perhaps...?
Pantyshots are a different matter entirely

Neat episode.

By the way, without spoiling anything, what is the consensus on the Fullbringer arc, manga readers? I'm curious as to what people think of it so far.

I just love the full-circle feeling of the opening and how it goes back to first opening:
- both start with cubes of the title flying around Ichigo
- both then shift to Ichigo's family and friends.
- Color wise newest and the very first opening are VERY similar.
- Animation quality increased.
- Man I missed kurosaki family comedy.
- Love the quite subtle intonation and dialogue indications on how exactly he feels.
- Its nice that at least one mangaka out of HST trio manages to actually allow characters reflect on what they want to do with their lives - gives extra dimensions, image that there's more to their lives than just this plot and fighting.
- "I got the life I yearned for..." god i love the sarcasm in that line.
- The dream. I still wonder what the hell the dream means.
- GOd i love school life n bleach.
- Ichigo's boss of win, has a great VA for that :)
- Ishida is being awesome and FABULOUS.
Love how ED conflicts with colorful OP. " I got the life i so yearned for", indeed.
Robbini said:Looks like everything except their personalities & memories changed. Basically, visual appearances.

Err, no. Every character changed in various subtle and interesting ways. Yes no one got 180 degree personality shifts, but there are differences. In more tactful and realistic way than, let's say in Naruto when that show did a timeskip.

Just wait and you will see :) Although some of character development in this arc is quite controversial among the bleach fanbase :)

Its the best timeskip out of the shonen trio(naruto, op, bleach) and its quite refreshing on how it actually keeps the reader guessing, when compared to pretty much straight-forward fight-fight-fight arcs bleach has had so far. . Heck even right now in manga we know next to nothing :)

OP video = BEAST.
ED video = Eh.
OP song = Enjoyed it somewhat.
ED song = LOVE IT. I feel like it's in another anime, because I've heard it somewhere..
This episode, IMO, was pretty good. I just felt their was something fresh about it. It's like a new chapter of Bleach. Honestly, I don't like Fullbring (I'm following the manga and don't care for it too much), but I hope the anime will allow me to see it in a different light. And I loved seeing Karin and Yuzu, they were SO adorable :3.
Lol. I thought Tatsuki (her hair)i looked like Aizen for a sec. When she was turned around, I'm like "AIZEN AT SCHOOL?!" Mind = Blown :O Then it's like, can I have my video game back and I go OH. Sad face xD.

You are seriously holding a timeskip which has turned into a badly paced messy and pointless metaphor about civil rights and equality above a very much realistic one year timeskip with pretty much realistic and not over-dramatized changes?

whatever you say, man.

Fai, your right about this being Bleach's best arc ( At least since the Soul Society arc) though I think your seriously downplaying One Piece's timeskip. It doesn't drag and its essentially an arc to reintroduce the main characters, their abilities, and let the world know the Straw Hats are back and ready to enter the new world. I'm under the impression you haven't read or watched One Piece yet? You should give it a try, now that its entered the timeskip in the anime. It really shouldn't be bashed as much, its definitely better then Naruto and Bleach in alot of ways, though still not as dark or detailed as Bleach.

Haven't watched Bleach in almost 8 months (ep 310 - final battle w/ aizen), but wow this was a really great episode, but everyone's new hairstyles (Tatsuki, Yuzu, Karin) looks really weird, but i'll probably get used to it.

Opening theme reminded me of the first Bleach OP with all of the colors, good song by SCANDAL. But that ED...omg i officially love Aimer. Her music is simple yet beautiful to listen to, probably the best thing about No.6 was that amazing ED theme.
