    Well people midway through August and Toonami is going through some changes. Casshern Sins is halfway done, Samurai 7 is starting, and Bleach now is officially in NEW canon material. Yup no more filler.... right? Find out but first, the awesome new title image provided by RockmanDash.

    Opening 12:Change

    Ending 23:Stay Beautiful​


    LAST TIME: Do I really need to say anything here? Seriously it was just a freaking recap of the Fake Karakura Town arc so far. As in those battles with the Fraccion and... the start of the battle of the Espada. Seriously even if you haven't seen them just check out all the threads for episodes 215-226 and you'll be all caught up. I guess we also got to see the new opening but... that's not really worth a flashback/recap episode is it? No I think not.

    THIS TIME: Alright we're actually getting new material as we get to see more of Ichigo's fight with Ulqouirra. But that's not all as Rukia takes on Rubadon (the captain of the Exequias) and Chad and Renji... wait what are they doing? They shouldn't be doing anything now but... okay guess you'll have to find out watching this episode I suppose.

    And now the Espada Information chart. This one was actually created by me (though the visual edits to show which Esapda died aren't done by me) so let's see what we got here shall we?


    NOTE: We're in the home stretch people as we're in the last 100 episodes of Bleach. And the good news is there is no more major filler arcs until we get to the end of the Fake Karakura Town arc (there are some one or two shots but it's nothing major thankfully), then one more filler arc and then the last arc of the series. Of course Bleach could come back on as an anime at some point but otherwise you may only see the last arc of the series in it's manga form. Either way at least this arc has an ending even though it will take us until next year to see it, and at least till 2014 to see the end of the anime.

    Well that's it. Enjoy the show everyone!

    Alright, we're back to NEW canon material.

    Hopefully this stuff's any good.

    Bleach, Eureka Seven, Fullmetal Alchemist and Ghost in the Shell are all on tonight. Even Samurai 7 is back on television (on the same channel this time).

    It's 2006 all over again.

    As far as I am concerned the Naruto spinoff: Rock Lee anime is unoffical Bleach filler, just keeping the time slot warm until the Bleach anime is ready to resume.

    Anyway this episode it feels so long till we had new canon material. And particular the Ichigo / Ulquiorra fight began at the end of episode 215, and we are up to episode 267 and it is still not settled. Dam that is a long fight.

    Previously on Bleach: Recap episode. Because after half a year of mind-numbing filler, I think it may truly be necessary to bring everyone back up to speed.

    Those who read the manga know what I'm talking about.

    "Not a decision for you to make" reminded me of JYB's role as Vash.

    Wow this opening kinda spoils a lot. Oh who am I kidding, everyone probably already saw this subbed years ago.

    Yeesh, does that part in the intro with Mayuri putting his face all up in the fisheye lens scare the crap out of anyone else?

    And so the Dragonball Z of Neo-Toonami returns to canon at last.

    Me? I'm just ticking down the minutes to Samurai 7. Finally, some REAL swordplay on this block.

    Spoiler tag this if you have to: how soon until Ulqi dies?

    Yeah, just keep telling yourself that.

    Say, wasn't Ichigo just barely able to beat Grimmjow, not but an hour ago?

    I'm teaching my little sister about Bleach as this airs. Teaching her about Chad's and Renji's status as fodder and Orihime's role of "Ichigo" screamer was quite a task.

    Oh Rukia, You're still around.

    Here's a way that Renji hasn't sucked yet - friendly fire.

    OH LORD FLASHBACKS NOW.

    Hollows shouldn't be difficult you say Renji? Yeah, they shouldn't but you're Chad and Renji.

    Yeah, these fights make me feel like we're still in filler.

    Well, they're screwed now.

    So that's what Dr. Claw looks like.

    Oh great, now we're getting a filler fight with Renji, Chad and that sand Hollow. Even the canon is filler.

    "How is it that you're so much stronger? Is it from your fight with Grimmjow? Your friends? That girl? Or is the writer a total hack who wrote himself into a corner?

    And now Ichigo's repeating. Yep, this canon material sure is rewarding.

    I seriously think Chad is just messing with Renji on purpose.

    Jesus Christ, can you guys please stick to one fight? Particularly the one with the main character? I'm sure no one cares about these two clowns.

    I'LL GET YOU NEXT TIME, GADGET. NEXT TIME. IF YOU'D JUST HOLD STILL.

    She's not one of you. You're only saying that because she's wearing you guys' outfits.
