----------------------------------------
RUKIA!!!!!!!

Rukia's kick to Ichigo face was hilarious. lol tho's two. <3
I almost cryed when Ichigo was crying. ;_;
But everything was so EPICNESS!!! (way better then in the manga XD), freakin' LOVED IT! (still not liking Rukia's hair cut, and seeing it in the anime makes me even more mad Dx).
The Captains are HERE! Can't wait to see them fight too!
ahhhhhh!!!!!! Ichigo was too AWESOME!! XD

Great episode!
This was the big episode I was waiting to be animated. Fantastic episode certainly well-animated.

Ichigo gets his powers stolen, he falls into despair and actually breaks down and cries, Rukia makes her grand entrance along with the other shinigami and stabs Ichigo giving his powers back then we see how immensely powerful he is against Ginjo!

By simply swinging his sword he made a blast but his Getsuga Tensho obliterated the whole house and even cleared the whole sky! Great episode, this arc in the manga was to me was just okay but they really know how to animate it to make it amazing!
Touch me, you filthy casual~

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.

Wow they actually pulled this episode off pretty nicely. The quality at the most important parts was noticeably better, which is a good thing.

5/5 for me because Bleach doesn't get this good too often (especially in this arc).

But either way, damn, Rukia's legs weren't this thin last time I checked...

So, everyone changed their hairstyles during the time skip. Rukia lost her 'classic' charm, but, ah, not bad. Renji looks a lot better. Byakuya should have removed those family traditional white hairpins a long time ago. His hair look good flowing freely. Toushiro looks much more mature & Zaraki, well, no bells, yeah!

Poor Ikkaku, he was the only one who couldn't do any thing with his hair, because they don't exist. :(

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.

Last episode had an epic ending, yes. This one however, blew everything about that one out of the freaking water. This was, quite simply, one of the greatest episodes in the history of Bleach. Hands down.

Animation. Emotion. Action. SHINIGAMI! RUKIA!!!!!!!!!!

1000/5 if I could. I actually screamed "NOOO!" when it said To Be Continued.

And so it shall ^_^_^_^

I found the first half a little hard to follow, but overall good episode

"If you were to turn into a snake tomorrow and begin devouring humans, and from the same mouth you started devouring humans, you cried out to me 'I love you,' would I still be able to say 'I love you' the same way I do today?"

Amazing.... Ichigo is so powerful now...

Anyway what's up with his new sword form, and that X on his chest.... Looks like he evolves when his powers become stronger, like Bakugans...

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 have to agree with you. It was not quite as epic as in the manga. :(

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.
