Epic entrance of the Shinigami, they usually reserve that for the bad guys. Would have been even more epic if *all* the doors would have opened, not only like 3 or 4. Imagine 13 doors, each with a captain behind. They didn't go all out so to say. Still, epic.

And Rukia is the same as ever. Too bad we didn't see the pictures. Not that one of us would be able to understand what she drew, but thats why i'd loved to see them :P

And too bad Ichigo didn't go the Bankai + Hollow mask route when Ginjo said "nothing to be surprised about". Like "bankai" *pulls hollow mask down*. Ginjo would have had a heart attack hearing/seeing that.

Now i wonder,with Urahara, Isshin, Rukia, Renji, Ikkaku and the 3 captains, theres quite a lot of people there. Ichigo is fighting 1 vs 1 with Ginjo, so maybe Rukia and Renji take on Tsukishima..still, 6 people left. And Ikkaku would fight alone, while Rukia and Renji, who both are Leutnants aswell, would fight 2 vs 1. Maybe Urahara, Isshin and maybe Rukia won't fight?

Though it doesn't really matter who's going to fight, with Urahara there, there's nothing that can go wrong. He probably already set up 20 layers of traps, illusions, inflatable decoys and so on, just in case. Most likely it was Kenpachi who insisted they have to do it the hard way, as in, fighting and stuff :)

The big question is, how long is Ichigo going to be like this? He is so powered up again..they had the Espada when he reach his "normal" maximum, with Bankai + Hollow mask. His second transformation was only momentary, aswell as the times when his hollow took over, like in one of the fights against Byakuya, probably the last before he was accepted as ally. His skull clad form was only in the movie and even there only temporarily..and his final Getsuga Tenshou power up did not last as we know, too.

They just have to depower him again once this is over, unless they got something bigger then ever up their sleeves, like Aizen's dream coming true with him getting another power up (he probably got more then Ichigo, and it's normal for shonen heroes to power up ever often..), or squad "zero" (the soul kings guard) is invading Soul Society. And depowering always needs some explanation why he loses his powers again. If they don't start mentioning it next episode, it would be really stupid if he lost it.

Finally I saw Rukia again ! Ive waited for this so long and almost had several orgasms while watching this episode oO...
This Episode reminds of the one in the first arc when Ichigo prevents Rukia from getting executed by the giant flame phonix. I just love Bleach for those moments of pure epicness !

Wasn't as epic as I expected, the transformation could have been done much better imo. Also at the end he cut the house, wheren't there still people in there? Like family and friends.

I thought of that too before they showed the "To Be Continued", but I believe they were in the ground floor so no harm done.

I was kinda disappointed, I think they could have put a little bit more epicness into his transformation back into a Shinigami. It felt like "Ya hes back, lets move on". I really was hyped for this episode because of the manga but they kinda let me down. I hope they do the rest better.


I have to agree with you. It was not quite as epic as in the manga. :(
“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.” -NARUSAKU FOREVER!

So one cut from Tsukishima's sword inserts him into your memories and the second one erases them? I know inserting logic into a shounen will give you a headache, but isn't that awfully inconvenient? Sure there should be a way to erase the memories, but cutting them up again?

I know, i'm splitting hairs here. This was an epic episode. But i think the transformation to shinigami form should have been a bit more epic. Now they just showed Ichigo disappear into a reiatsu cloud and come out as a shinigami and from a distance too.

But i friggin' loved the way they showed the difference in power with Fullbringers and Ichigo's shinigami form. "You're Getsuga got stronger!" "That wasn't a Getsuga." And how he cut the house up.

But all in all, this was one of the better episodes.

I do hope they give a good explanation why it took this long to restore Ichigo's power.

I never got why Hitsuguaya put his reatsu into the sword. Ikaku, Kenpachi, Byakuya and Renji and Rukia have a lot more reason. I guess he's just there for the fan girls.

I wasn't really sure how this arc would go as all the comments I read were that the storyline in the Manga sucked. Well I must say, in my opinion the show hasn't been this good since eveyone left Hueco Mundo. If the show remains this good I just may push my score back up to a 10. Really lovin' it.

Cool episode.

btw: What amazed me more than slashing the house is the fact, that the upper part seems to have been completely vaporized, while the lower part doesn't seem to have even a scratch. :)

They should've came earlier, but well, that money increases the climax tension and anticipation, so why not.

Conclusion:
Getsugya tenshou=Destroy house + clear sky
Bankai-Tensazangetsu + Getsugya tenshou=Destroy half of country?
Bankai-Tensazangetsu + Hollow Mask + Getsugya tenshou = Whole country destroyed?

Loved this episode, even though I read the manga chapter, this was amazing. It's great to actually see the story in video form, just looks much more lively. Lieutenant Rukia looks much cooler now, about time for her to get promoted :D
Ichigo's zanpakuto looks freakin' sweet. Can't wait for the next few episodes, haha)

Awesome episode~ Ichigo new outfit looks cooler...at least more than the fullbring outfit. Rukia's encouragement was very awesome as well.

edit- I wonder if the one hater watch the episode just to vote that they hate it.

Dont you remember the deicide arc? Ichigo unified his hollow and shinigami powers into whole. There is no mask left.

My face probably had such a weird expression when the doors with the captain appeared and more so when they came out of them. Byakuya!!! <3 Though he looks like he can be in sengoku basara...
I loved the fact that those were the ones that came out othe door cause it made me think that they are the closest Gotei 13 to Ichigo.

And Rukia's voice either got more annoying or it's cause I haven't heard her voice for a while. Which makes no sense cause I marathoned from epi 283... Shiro looks good with the scarf and squad 11 never changes. Aaa~ :)
EDIT: okay, Kenny's hair did change and Renji looks better with the band. Poor Ikkaku and his shiny bald head.

P.s. I was a bit confused. how did Ichigo not die from being stabbed it the chest with a broad sword? Because I'm pretty sure I saw blood with the initial stab.

Lol, also, was I the only one that thought Isshin was talking about Urahara when he said he wasn't the one holding the sword? Cause I was like 'oh yeah, just make him not trust Urahara like Ginjo said...' -.-

Been waiting for this for ages. They made the Ginjo/ Tsukishima explanation part a bit longer but I guess it'll make the next episode even better.

Lol at Rukia/Ichigo reunion was pretty funny as they always are :D

Ichi is back in beast mode! Will be awhile till his fight tho....But still rest of fights as well should be good :)

i was thinking the same thing XD they're solving a mystery while Ichigo's got a sword in his chest.

In my mind, when Ichigo kept telling Ginjo "Give it back" all I could visualize was him whipping out a pistol and pop! Pop!...2 shots...2 kills

Even though I knew it was coming, that stab in the back (b4 we find out it's Rukia) bewildered me like "what just happened?" but then I was like "oooh Ginjo what's your face looking like...impossible? no, not impossible, fact.

Oh snap it's about to get epic
How awesome was that super-senkaimon part :3 that has to be one of the baddest entrances ever! Love how everyone is spectating while ichigo's fighting lol
that wasn't a getsugatensho, that was just me swing my sword. you mad bro?

Ginjo's face says it just got real

Yes! Rukia is back!

I didn't know I would miss her so much, feels kinda weird tbh.

Overall this was a good episode. Ichigo gets his powers back, gives some snarky comments to the filthy backstabber Ginjo and it builds up to one great brawl in the coming episodes, I am content!

Also, Did he just cleave a house!? I hope he has a good insurance!

The way Ichigo got his powers back never did sit well with me. Also, it seems quite convenient that the Shinigami who have been around for hundreds of years change so much in appearance in just 18 months.

when i saw a coloured version of ichigo's new bankai, i legit thought it was really good fan art. after that i saw many more versions of the same thing. than i realized i got spoilered on his transformation.
but anyway, now the show starts. ichigo/shinigami vs xcution. i wonder if riruka will still like ichigo after all this?

lovin kenpatchi,s and toshiros's new hair style also does anyone also think that rukia is starting to look alot like hanataro, at first i thought it was him then ichigo's dad said she.
if anyone else is thinking that his transformation is over i have a feeling that ichigo isnt even using his shikai and if his sword has changed then his bankai must have to.



It's his shinkai, it just a much stronger form of it, and of course his bankai changed lol. If you noticed his shinkai sword looks a cross between his 2nd shinkai sword (you know the meat clever looking one, not that byakuya broke) and his full bring sword =D

Considering the ones who did appear here now are considerably quite young, we can't know it on if everyone changed their appearance. Those who appeared are quite younger than the rest of chars we know and most of them we left off with beginning a huge training to get better..

If everyone else like Shunsui, Yamaji, etc, changed appearance then sure.

QFT! thank you that finally someone notice such a non-significant thing:P I dont understand, remake of their haircuts drive me crazy... and is it only me? :/

Well Im glad that `the story` of xcution is explained because it seemed so fetched >.< that I've almost abandoned the show.

but still few things were annoying like: oh Orihime and Chad can teleport themselves now..., what happened to family and friends of ichigo?... wasnt Tsukishim explaing how he cheated Orichime and Chad when they were standing next to him?...
AND WHY, OH WHY ICHIGO does always have to be THE-ONLY-ONE-WHO-COULD gain this power and that power and that power (and break the chains -.-') in so short time tx only to his determination etc etc... (i dont read the manga but I assume that Kubo will find theory that fits, anyway super-ichigo definitly wont ever stop bother me)

(and again) why does everybody think that the moment rukia hits and shout on ichigo is funny? Dont get me wrong it usually is funny but in this particular moment it was just irritating
as much as the fact everyone changed their haircuts at the same time...
and Rukia haircut sucks -.-

Its not a drastic change if you really think about it... Despite bleach seemingly going on forever, we've only seen the shinigami in action for like under a year in the course of the show. What's to say They didn't change their styles before that. Yoruichi and soi fong wore different clothes and had shorter hair. At one point yoruichis hair was long too, before when we're actually introduced to her.
Byakuya had a ponytail when he was younger. Yumichika had long hair. Kenpachi wore his hair down. Tousen had different hair too.
So us actually getting to see a year actually past in the bleach verse and their appearance actually changing might seem weird cause it was over the point of one episode but it's nothing they haven't done before without us seeing or through flashbacks. The way I see it, they usually change style when something big happens.

Thanks to Iri for the awesome Signature!! ^^

I can tell that since they're ending the anime, they're doing all they can to make the last few episodes as well animated and put together as possible. Seriously, that FELT like a real Bleach episode. I've been watching this show for the longest time kind of uninterested but THIS. THIS is what a Bleach episode should feel like. Excellent.

Loving Ichigo's new blade. I noticed that it says 361/366 on the episode list so I'm guessing this arc is gonna end then. Is it getting something like a prequel or a new season or something?

Can't remember Ichigo crying so heavily like that, I felt kinda bad for him since he was just teased with a glimmer of hope before Ginjo snatched it away from him.

Then lo and behold, Rukia appears and re-encacts the first Bleach episode to awaken his powers! Nice to see how some members of the Gotei 13 have changed too. Toshiro looks badass.

Ichigo's new form is awesome, seems to be on par/stronger than when he fought Aizen judging from the force of his blade, not to mention his blue getsuga clearing the damn sky. Ginjo's bit more than he can chew.

All in all, this was a classic Bleach ep...and I loved it.
