THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Well I guess this is the last episode for canon story. The next two episodes will be crappy fillers and then it's time for the Pendulum arc.

Aizen used his sekret hax powers and locked Ichigo and co. in Hueco Mundo while the top 3 Espada will duke it out with the Caps in fake Karakura Town. I lol'd at Ichigo's newtype reaction when Ulqiourra broke out. This is going to get pretty lulz.

Yay! Filler! My life is complete!

Well, in two episodes we'll get to see Ichigo and Ulqiourra duke it out (I think).

And the Vaizard are probably going to show up to save the day when the captains are getting their asses kicked. Oh well.

Felli disapproves of this thread.

Yay for more animated Stark <3
Though I defiantly prefer how he looks in the manga >.>

And now it's time for fillers. I guess this is the best time they could fit some in, at least there won't be many episodes. Also, I wonder how long they are going to make the Pendulum arc. I have a feeling they'll try to stretch it out a bit.

Good, The Hueco Mundo arc is finally over. Hopefully, the filler really is only 2 episodes, the Pendulum arc was a high point for '08 Bleach.

This next arc may be short, but just have a long filler thrown in the middle like last time.

Honestly, this is the most exciting episode in maybe 100 eps. It's a shame though, that Orihime basically was this red-herring of a distraction. I knew there was more to her powers than was let on, and therefore, I was hoping that she would have a bigger role to play, but alack, she was just a plot device. It's a shame that great, interesting characters with strange powers like Orihime and Chad take a backseat to Ichigo.

Speaking of Ichigo, didn't he and Aisen look a little off at times in this episode?

Woo! Lot of spoilers in here..

What happened to the animation quality? It was, like, the most epic episode that the show's had in months, and they made everyone's close-ups look they were drawn by interns... I cried on the inside.

Still, after the filler, it looks like good times.

What can i say. Simple an episode with amazing developments that unfortunately is gone a be the last of it's kind for some time. Really what a cliffhanger.
Can't wait for second round of Ulqiourra vs Ichigo. Do be honest i would like Ulqiourra to kick his ass again. Sorry but i love the guy. He really has a certain style. From the way he makes Orihime shit her self every time she sees him to the way he speaks. Really who else could have said in a more cooler way "Koi Kurosaki Ichigo". Even his entrance was spectacular. That guy deserved to have been the number one and not 4. Also we have a big conflict in the Karakura city and that's exiting also.
I guess we have to be patient.

So the fights have (at last) ended, and now we have fillers again... Well, since they have put fillers right inside the Hueco Mundo arc, I can't say anything to only 2 episodes of fillers between two arcs. I want Ulqiorra to kill Ichigo.

Wow, I gotta say I really liked this episodes. Probably because I stopped reading the manga after Zaraki's fight so I didn't know what was coming next. Looking forward to the Turn Back the Pendulum arc.

Yeah he seems to have slipped through the cracks. And what about Ikkaku and Aizen/Gin/Tosen's old lieutenants? I guess they're holding up the fort in Soul Society.

I'm going to be completely honest. This episode was dragged out... just like the previous ones... but..
I... I fucking loved it.

It portrayed that chapter of the manga so fucking well.....

I completely agree. I was looking forward to bleach but then..... the animation ruined it. WTF! its like how crappy the drawing is during the filler episodes. Such a good story and then.... shitty animation! Ruined my night.
Seems to me like bleach is going the way of Naruto sometimes. drag out fights LOOOOONG past how long they should be and random fillers..... I can understand a need to put some distance between the manga and the anime, but a decent filler arc like the Bount wasn't as bad as this crap. Oh well, two more episodes and the the Pendulum starts. I loved it and hopefully the anime wont ruin it. Bleach was the best but if this keeps going..... it wont be.

Great episode :)
The animation could've been better, but finally Ulqui and Starkie appeared, so I don't have the right to complain ^^

Also, I can't believe that instead of starting the Turn Back The Pendulum eps, they make stupid Lurichiyo fillers again >.<"
Not fair -.-"

As Ulquiorra returned to the series I bet he was thinking something like "that was the longest 3 hours of my life!". And YAY the plot finally moved on...a little.

I would love this episode but two things: pretty shabby, absolutely non-Bleach animation at times and Orihime's helplessness. Was she really invented only to play a role of a damsel in distress? WTF

I enjoyed it. I loved it with Captain's shunpo-ing into Karakura. And the animation was pretty poor in this, especially when they re-claimed Orihime and Kenpachi and Ichigo went for the guy, Ichigo's face was really horribly drawn. But hey, the last bit of the ep. made up for it. Can't wait for the next bit after the fillers. Seriously. I'm glad I didn't see the last filler arc..

This episode was ok but damn that was a long flashback, I felt like I got to watch episode 202 all over again! :P

That aside it was nice to see how the anime brought the manga to life, Aizen as always is God and the Captains were amazing!

Sure we got two crazy fillers up ahead but it's not so bad, think of them as crazy OVAs ^.^ and after that we have the Pendulum Arc and that is going to be sweet! :D
