    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.

    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.

    Uh dude..you never even talked about this with me nor do I want to do another team up to be as nice as possible.^^;

    *sigh* It's like the pm system doesn't exist anymore. I went through the whole Amagai filler arc talkbacks, i think I can actually do some canon if you don't mind. Sorry if I sound rude but honestly it's like "OH HEY AMAGAI IS OVER NOW I CAN GO AND HI JACK". Ugh..i know you don't mean it in a rude way but next time at leastttttt pm me with the thought of asking if I even wanted to team up with you so it's not a awkward "Oh....you made the talkback I had formatted and set and it's even before the posting time..huh......"

    Not to mention we did that back in 2009, and it's 2011...yeah...that was a while ago and I'm fine doing it by myself :sweat: sorry Mike? I'm not saying "I OWN DA BLEACH TALKBACKS" but I'm normally the guy who makes them and well..ah awkwardness..

    The pink haired dude's new attack was just sick in the manga, I wonder if the anime will tone it down.

    I have a quick question about the dub.

    How does the Adult Swim schedule work? Do they have a cutoff period where they will stop showing new episodes for several months?

    I was hoping to see the Turn Back the Pendulum arc by late April or May but I dunno if they're gonna stop after the current season is finished.

    It is about to begin, does the plot progress at all in this episode, or just non stop fighting?

    Previously on Bleach: A bunch of recap and the EsSpoony shows up to ruin Ichigo's rescue.

    BTW, can anyone explain the "Es" in "EsSpoony" to me?

    Bleach has a plot?

    In the not too distant past,
    Late last Saturday Night.

    Ichigo Kurosaki
    Is stuck in another fight!

    Nnoitra confronted him
    Wanted to fight on a whim!

    The Spoon Head attacked without delay
    And his minion captured Orihime!

    (LET ME GOOOO!)

    "I take him in a battle
    Where he won't come out alive!"

    LA LA LA

    "I'm certain I will win
    Cuz I'm ranked no. five!"

    LA LA LA

    if you're wondering how they eat & breath
    and other science facts.

    Just repeat to yourself:
    "It's just a shonen, I should really just relax..."

    For Szayel Aporro Theater 3000!

    SHOWTIME!

    And here we go back to biz-nass. Will Nel kick this one off with her trademark screeching?

    I'd nearly forgotten about the Vizards. Whatever happened to them?

    I'd nearly forgotten about Nel's friends. Why are they still here?

    Thanks, I came up with it on the fly.

    Also, EsSpoony is pronounced "S Spoony".

    Oh goody, the comic still exist. :sweat:

    Pesce hasn't appeared in about twenty-five or so episodes. In all honesty, I didn't miss him.

    "Do you remember the ass-whupping I gave you the last time we fought?"

    Gloat gloat gloat gloat flashback flashback gloat gloat gloat flashback gloat gloat gloat gloat flashback flashback. Jeez, he's even gloating in the flashbacks he's gloating about.

    Pretty sure Kubo was saying the same thing at this point.
    Something about comic relief, but I don't see it.
    I still don't get it.

    good question
    It tries to...I think.:sweat:

    I think the "Es" is short for Espada.


    Wow, this show is starting to rival Naruto in the length of its flashbacks.

    As in "S-Spada".

    God, and I thought this fight was already tedious.

    Then again, the audience probably forgot how it went down considering the filler.

    Oh well now we get to have a long flashback set of sequences of Renji and Uryu's fight. How... exciting. And by exciting I mean an excuse to not have to animate more footage from the manga for several minutes.
