    Bleach 258:Sword Beast Arc​

    Opening 11:Anima Rosa- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ociriebR_zI
    Ending 22:Leaving you​

    Last time
    :Ichigo encounters a mysterious sword beast, who eventually gets consumed by a nearby hollow. Just like with Muramasa, the sword beast's power mixes with the hollow and loses control of itself. Ichigo clashes with the Sword Beast, loses his guard, and later is able to defeat it thanks to help from Hitsugaya.

    Today:Renji and his two sword spirits chase a Sword Beast into Karakura Town..

    Like always, here is the Zanpakuto Chart created by myself and suggested by Neo Ultra Mike. With this chart you can learn all the up to date info about the Zanpakuto spirits so far currently in the dub:


    SPOILERS ARE NOT TOLERATED: No talk of future arcs, events, etc! If you must talk about something outside of this episode please refer to the anime forum or discuss it through pm! This talkback is about this episode ONLY.

    Countdown to the return of Fake Karakura: 8 episodes!

    Notes:
    More Toonami this Saturday and....eight more weeks of Bleach filler! The good news is that means we only have to deal with the Sword Beast arc until August, so try to enjoy it until then!

    Sit back, relax, and get ready for another dose of twenty one minutes of filler material and possibly new promos for you Toonami Faithful. :)

    First night back posting live and it's a Renji episode? Bad luck I suppose.

    Well at least one good thing will come from this arc, reading the snarky comments on how bad this is.:D

    Previously on Bleach

    Can't remember. Something about sword spirit that looks like Ikkaku and a lot of fanservice.

    Another Saturday, another night of enduring Bleach so we can get to the good stuff.

    (Well, actually I'd still watch Bleach anyway since I'm really habitual about watching TV shows).

    Man, it took a while for that Snow White thing to end. A minute late. Now on with the show.

    That title looks like a Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon parody.

    Though in their defense, Snow White was pretty good.


    The first thing you see is Renji's mug taking up the screen. Gee, that must mean it's gonna be really good. I do give the animation team props for never forgetting that Monkey's left boob has that freckle on it.

    When did Snake and Monkey get disconnected? I didn't notice this development.

    "Is freedom all that great? Wouldn't you rather be enslaved by your master and die with him if he dies?"

    Snake got in a fight with a fish and won! (Xenoblade ref)

    "Is freedom all it's cracked up to be?" Of course.:)

    I think that's an Asian thing where they put a random adjective in front of an animal.

    Noisy Whale, Bloated Dog.
    Backwards Badger, Angry Chipmunk.

    See?

    I just noticed the snake kid sounds like Carl Clover from Blazblue.

    Since the writers thought it would be more conenient for the plot.

    Oh God. This is one of those stories where the dumb kid acts defiant and wants to be treated like an adult, only to make a stupid mistake and be bailed out by his friends.

    Before you know it, they'll probably hit us with a "drugs are bad" message.

    "Excuse me ma'am, there's a very strangely-dressed child here with a long tail who looks kind of like a monster. But more importantly, he's eating your snacks."

    I feel sorry for any frog that comes near that kid.

    No wonder Renji sucks. Half of his Zanpakuto has ADHD, while the other half can only manage a scratch on his arm.

    "Painted Weasel, Aggravated Seal."
    "Drooling Ostrich, Constipated Pony."
    "Orange Emu, Confused Platypus."
    Hey, this is fun.

    Don't blame him for wanting to ditch Renji. And it is the convience store guy from the Bount arc.

    Now only if there was a Relius equivalent.

    Is this episode really going to be about Snake? Really writers? Give back my Princess Rurichiro or whatever her name was and a soccer match please.

    Am I the only one that thinks when the one time this show refers to actual chicken breasts, I can only think of the cast of well-endowed chicks from boobburg land?

    Now that I think about it...

    Solid Snake, Psycho Mantis, Sniper Wolf, Revolver Ocelot...
    Wait, the last two are nouns. Oh well, they're still cool names.
