    Well everyone last week me and Megaman X were too late to post the talkbacks but this time we're right on time. And I'm doing the Bleach talkback for the 1AM episode tonight, the second to last episode of the 7th Season...

    BLEACH EPISODE 166!

    LAST TIME:

    THIS TIME:

    NOTE ONE: Next week we are getting a repeat of this episode and then the final episode of this season, 167. After that Adult Swim will run a repeat of the first movie the week after and for the first week of December premiere the Second Bleach movie The Diamond Dust Rebellion (that Megaman X is doing the talkback for).

    NOTE TWO: No talks of characters, plot points, arcs or fights after this considering this is a spoiler free zone.

    And now the Espada Roll Call.


    Well that's it. Enjoy the episode everyone!

    I've been waiting to hear this dubbed for almost 2 years (does 1 year about 8 months count) primarily to see how the VAs handle the variance of emotion during the battle...there are too many moments that just made me realize out of all episodes of this season, this was the best animated for the time being. This is going to be a good one and I hope everyone enjoys it!

    Plus we hear encirclement battle during the fight and that seems to be ominous for a wonderful knock down, dragout fight...at least apparently in this anime anyway...

    I have to say one of my favorite canon episodes of bleach. Everything just blended together extremely well here and I won't spoil a thing but I will definitely say some more on the arrancar side will be introduced as well as some eerie commentary from someone regarding ichigo v grimjow iii...considering the commentary though I find it a bit unique that it seems regardless of side, Ichigo is respected...and it has been seen before in several arcs just because he has this ungodly ability to raise his spiritual pressure above everyone else at such an early age and minus a 50 year minimum that rukia, renji and the other captains have.

    And on an unrelated note, doesn't bleach seem to be like wrestling? Scripting, building for an epic fight just to realize there is someone stronger (espada there is someone stronger I'm sure). Just hit me bleach follows a similar formula that the wwe uses...scary

    This should be interesting. This is an awesome episode. It has a great battle, not to mention a little bonus at the end for us shippers.

    Last Time: Grimmjow literally sends Ulquiorra into the next dimension. Ichigo comes back and asks Orihime to heal Grimmjow so they can fight. Orihime assures Nel that Ichigo will win. Ichigo pulls out his hollow mask.

    SHOWTIME!

    Previously on Bleach: Grimmjow sends Ulquiorra to another dimension (for realz y'all), gets a bit too close to Orihime, dukes it out with Ichi, plays head games with him, and finishes up by making him put on his mask. Hmm, it was a very Grimmy episode. Oh, and Ori and Nel had a heart to heart talk.

    "After his defeat at the hands of Ulquiorra..."

    Huh, that's a new one.

    He sent himself to somewhere else so he could fight Ichigo? Even anime physics has its limits.

    Okay and the recap ends up only being two minutes. For Bleach nowadays that's actually pretty good.

    Oh and BTW look at the animation quality now. Seems a bit imrpoved even if it's only being used so far for having Orihime shake some.

    You know the good thing about the recaps from the show itself? Easy digest of what you've missed while thinking to type.

    Also, recap lasted 1:48 from my stopwatch (started a second late and ended a second late); thanks, Neo Ultra Mike for taking the challenge with me. And JYB in hollow mask is freaky auto-tuned.
