    So when do we get that sweet, sweet emo opening? You know, the one where everybody stands around in calvin klein shirts?

    This show seems to have an identity crisis in regards to the Soul Society. Half of the time it's portrayed as Evil Incorporated, and the other half it's shown as the set of a harem comedy.

    Permit me to reiterate my previously established conviction that the hiring policy of the Soul Society is with fault.

    It's not the size of your Zanpatou, it's how you use it.

    Ugggh, the music they played when he pulled out his blade.

    YAAAAYYY!!!! FIREWORKS!!!!!!

    How'd his dad know where he was going?

    Go Team Kuroneko!!

    Soul Society is not really a good or a bad place. The motives of most of its inhabitants fall into a grey area, with a small minority of really good people, and another minority of really bad people. That being said...

    Gah, Ichimaru's voice doesn't fit AT ALL. He doesn't sound creepy. And he just doesn't sound right without a Southern Accent.

    Kenpachi sounds alright.

    And Ichigo learning Zangetsu's name isn't quite as dramatic with the name having already been spoiled by Viz.

    No, it's Episode 26 alright.

    I know its a bit early, but this ep FTW. :)

    I am sorry, but Ichimaru never sounded creepy to begin with. He sounded like a suck up/schemer, if anything.

    You know, I did stumble upon the rap version of this recently.

    It can be much, much worse.

    Isshin is the best dad ever.

    And Keigo is always hilarious. He's amazing.

    Orihime and Tatsuki's interaction is always great, too.

    Yep. I had no issues with it really either.

    Also, yeah. Episode 26 is when the new opening starts up.

    I can't believe this is what everyone was complaining about. There's no build up to the point where Ichigo discovers Zangetsu's name and that music just made it worse.

    Personally, I thought it was one of the best scenes in the series to date. At least, in Japanese.

    By to date, meaning to where AS has shown.

    The blood letter is still awesome.

    But the P.S. isn't as hilarious in the dub, because Micheal Lindsay just uses his same old voice.
