Everything is working their way back to normal in soul society, the injured are getting healed up, Karakura town is getting transferred back to the real world and Ichigo’s friends are coming to congratulate him on his victory over Aizen.
This episode felt a little weak for a final conclusion. The episode looked at each character and their reaction to the aftermath of the battle against Aizen. We saw Toshiro training like if the end of the world was the very next day, he is bitter that he still can’t master the control of his Bankai, meanwhile you have Matsumoto who is trying to forget about Gin, she remembers his faces for one last time and then proceed to go on with life, like Gin always wanted her to do.
Byakuya and Kenpachi finaly came back from Hueco Mundo, we saw Yammi let out his last few words before his finale collapse. Byakuya and Kenpachi looked bored with the fight they just had, they were quite unimpressed with the best the espada had to offer.
Next Kenpachi, Byakuya and Kyoraku were summoned by old man Yamamoto who did what old men do best, scream at the incompetency of the younger generation.
After all those silly and boring resume of the life of the heroes seen during the last battle, we finaly reach la pièce de resistance. Ichigo is still with Kisuke , he explains to Ichigo that Aizen will be dealt with by section 46, and Ichigo reveals that maybe Aizen was just a bit emo in the end, Aizen was just looking for someone to understand him, someone of his level. In the end he might have intentionnally lost his power because he finaly found what he wanted, Ichigo had became his equal. But now Ichigo is slowly losing his power, he spent 10 days in a coma, and his friends are starting to see that he is slowly losing what made him so special to begin with.
And this is about where the episode finish, we saw everyone around Ichigo trying to support him while he slowly loses his power and then the arc officialy ended.
Things I liked about this episode:
- To see Byakuya and Kenpachi coming out of Hueco Mundo with a bored face was fun
Kind of dissapointing conclusion, I was hoping for something either more action packed or more emotionnally packed, but this episode gave none of those, so it was just a meh for me. Plus, now we can be sure to be sent into a completely boring filler season hourai !
ZeroG Signing Of-
Eva: HOLD IT. HOLD IT. WE’RE NOT FINISHED. I GOT SOME STUFF TO SAY ABOUT THIS BULLSHIT WRAPUP.
RANT Impression: [WARNING FOUL LANGUAGE IS FREQUENTLY BEING USED]
I KNOW I DON’T COVER BLEACH, YOU KNOW I DON’T, AND TRUST ME I DON’T WATCH THE FREAKING ANIME ALOT, AND THIS ONE (AND LAST FEW EPISODES) EPISODE I DECIDED I WAS REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO EVEN THOUGH I KNEW THERE I REALLY SHOULDN’T HAVE BEEN HOLDING MY BREATH FOR THIS ONE – AND LOOK WHAT THE FUCK STUDIO PIERROT DID! THIS IS WHY I DON’T TRUST THEIR ADAPTIONS AND STOPPED WATCHING BLEACH ANIME ALTOGETHER. THEY BUTCHER EVERYTHING FROM THE MANGA AND SCREW IT UP. WORST OF ALL, THEY CHOSE THE MOST IMPORANT, EPIC AND MEMORABLE MOMENT IN BLEACH THAT EVERYONE WAS FUCKING LOOKING FORWARD TO THE MOST AND DECIDED TO BE TROLLS AND CHANGE THE CIRCUMSTANCES! SERIOUSLY NOW, THAT WAS TOTALLY UNNECESSARY.
SO NOW WE’RE LEFT OFF TO ASKING, “WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED? WHY DID THEY DO THAT?!“
THIS WAS SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN, CHAPTER 436 Pg 14 AND READ FROM THERE. ACTUALLY SCRATCH THAT, READ FROM THE START OF THE CHAPTER, GO ON READ IT. IT WON’T KILL YOU.
SO STUDIO PIERROT DECIDED TO GO, “OH HEY LETS MAKE THIS AT RUKIA’S HOUSE INSTEAD!” “OH HEY A MONTH IS TOO LONG SO LETS MAKE IT 10 DAYS !!!!“ THEY FREAKING RUINED THE FREAKING POTIENTIAL AWESOMENESS BECAUSE THEY DECIDED TO DRAG ON THE FIRST PART OF THE EPISODE (BTW WAS CH 423) , AND GOD WHY DID THEY THINK THEY HAD TO DO IT THIS WAY? IT WOULD HAVE TURNED OUT PERFECTLY IF THEY JUST FOLLOWED THE SAME FREAKING STEPS AS THE MANGA DID! NOT ONLY THAT THEY RUINED THE MOOD, COMPLETELY. YOU JUST CAN’T HAVE THIS START OFF AFTER THIS LONG ASS-FILLER ARC! NO YOU ABSOLUTELY CAN’T, IT JUST RUINS ITS TRUE MEANING, AND AGAIN, RUINS THE MOOD.
SO MAYBE THEY DID THIS BECAUSE THEY DIDN’T WANT ICHIGO TO “LOSE HIS POWERS” FOR THE UP-COMING FILLER, OR MAYBE THEY JUST WANTED TO MAKE A RETARDED PROCESS OUT OF IT. EITHER WAY FILLERS HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THE ACTUAL PLOT WHATSOEVER SO IT SHOULDN’T BE A HUGE PROBLEM IF ICHIGO HAD PERMANENTLY LOST HIS POWERS THIS EPISODE AND CONCLUDED THE ARC PROPERLY.
HUFFS Okay I’m done.
This is why I stick to the manga.
Hold the $#%^^ on this shit deserves more than you have given it.
Okay I’m just gonna %$#%^&&in put this out here
OKI IS PISSSSED [OKI’S ADDITION]
Let me tell you something. Bleach is my favorite anime, and my favorite manga. Bleach saved my life once before and of all manga, it’s the one where I care nothing about the sexy factor and my favorite ship is a minor pairing. I love Bleach and for so many fucking years I’ve put up with stupid shit but THIS RUINED AN ENTIRE ARC ENDING. THAT IS F%^&ing MEDDLING. That’s like they wanted to have another stupid arc in soul society so they decided Rukia wouldn’t get her closure with Kuukaku and Ichigo wouldn’t have any CONSEQUENCES FOR HIS ACTIONS OR DEVELOPMENT. They are shrugging off AN ENTIRE ARC’S DEVELOPMENT IN ORDER TO CONTINUE THEIR SCREENTIME FOR FILLER ARCS. ICHIGO WILL NOT BE NORMAL ANGSTY ICHIGO, ICHIGO WILL NOT LOSE HIS POWERS, RUKIA’S LIKE WHATEVS AND SUDDENLY AIZEN’S DEFEAT MEANS SHIT ALL! NOTHING MEANS ANYTHING! THE ENTIRE ARC IS GONE AND EVERYONE’S GOING TO BE HAPPY SINGY STUPID REGULAR CAST AND IF I’M WRONG, PIERROT WILL DO SOMETHING RIGHT AND I REALLY DON’T BELIEVE THAT ONE WILL HAPPEN. The best. THE BEST part of Bleach is consequences, ESPECIALLY for Ichigo. When Ichigo gained too much power too quickly, he almost lost his soul. THIS WAS THE FINAL AFTERMATH OF IT. He finally got the power to protect ONLY TO LOSE IT WHILE PROTECTING EVERYONE HE LOVES! LOSING HIS FRIENDS WHO WERE SHINIGAMI! LOSING THE PERSON WHO GAVE HIM THE ABILITY TO PROTECT! Romantic or fucking not that was IMPORTANT! IT WAS RELEVANT! IT MEANT SOMETHING IT WAS DEEP IT MEANT THE ENTIRE SERIES HAD COME TO FULL CIRCLE ONLY TO BE FINISHED BY KUBO’S REMAINING STORY ARCS AND THAT IS HAS BEEN STRIPPED MEANS BLEACH WAS DONE AN INJUSTICE, THE ENTIRE POINT IS MOOT. WHO CARES IF ORIHIME AND ICHIGO HOLD HANDS? I DON’T. WHAT’S RIDICULOUS IS WHEN AN ENTIRE STORIES’ POINT, FOR YEARS, FOR YEARS! IS GONE, FOR A FILLER ARC! I HAVE NEVER EVER EVER SEEN AN ANIME DO THIS NOT ONE AND I HAVE SEEN WELL OVER 100 ANIME. THIS IS DISGUSTING.
