I figured since back in season seven when me and Megaman split talkback duties (back when Bleach had double premieres) we could do the same here. Thus here's the full first offical non flashback centered episode of the new canon season... sort of. Opening 9 Veloncia: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r3TK6Sor2-8 Ending 17 Hitohira no Hanabira: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ppdbGUvTDA Last time: Everyone was glad to forget about that filler arc involving Captain... whoit's face trying to destroy Yamamoto in some ridicolous poorly concieved revenge scheme. And something about some little blond haired princess girl we pray never to see again. No we got to deal with actually new canon events... halfway into the episode. First we had to go over things that Kirk Thorthon would always tell us about in season seven: Aizen's evil plan, Orihime being kidnapped, Ichigo and friends vying to rescue her, and fighting evil Espadas. We specifically recap Ichigo getting pwned by Ulqouirra, being saved by Grimmjow with help from Orihime and then Grimmjow and Ichigo's battle ending with Ichigo stabbing Mr. Kitty Kat man right through the stomach. After that canon stuff we last saw in 2009 we cut to new material: Grimmjow still being around but taken out by Esspoony Onne himself, Nnorotria. And since he's stronger then Grimmjow and Ichigo's spent most of his energy on his last battle there's no way our hero can defeat this dastardly foe, unless it was poorly written. Also Renji and Uryu wind up meeting their old "friend" again AskThatHollowWithTheBoneGlasses, sporting a new cape and ready to begin the second "act" of this fight. TODAY: Apparently we're up to the second act of this fight as Aporro reveals some new tricks to his opponents. Do Uryu and Renji stand even a remote chance of winning? Or will the incredibley unpopular nerdspada crush the two into bugs? Find out tonight. And due to popular demand..THE ESPADA ROLL CALL! (The picture was not done by me but I did do most of the descrpitons cause... I'm really geeky like that I guess). SPOILERS ARE A NO NO: NO TALK OF FUTURE ARCS, EVENTS, CHARACTERS, AND ETC! ALL SPOILER TALK MUST BE TAKEN TO PM OR THE ANIME FORUM. YEP THAT MEANS NO SPOILER TAGS! THIS TALKBACK IS FOR THIS EPISODE ONLY! Obviously the people who are watching this for the first time as shown in last week's talkback won't be spoiled by seeing the closing or ending credits because they don't know the context behind the images. Thus don't give them any context behind the images that spoil them about future events in the anime or manga. Remember we here at Toonzone try to be considerate about others who may be watching things for the first time, espiecally when it comes to anime that have episodes dubbed into English quite some time after people have already seen the japanese versions of them. Well with all that said remember to post here about what you think of the episode everyone. I know I will.
