After a very long hiatus, I am back with new Bleach dub episode review. The episode for me was kind of meh, but I felt the same way with the original Japanese dub. Even though none of this is canon, I feel that some opportunities with Byakuya being a villain again, not just towards Ichigo, Renji, and Rukia, but to all of the Gotei 13 were missed. There is so much build up to the Byakuya mystery and when we see him again he's evil, this huge revelation just kind of goes nowhere.
Also, Vic was miscast as Senbonzakura and that is the honest truth. Vic could have played any other character, but after seeing some of Senbonzakura's face, the voice clearly does not match the face. I would have rather seen someone like Sam Riegal or even Yuri Lowenthal play him. Actually Yuri would have been a great Senbonzakura especially with this voice. Heck Senbonzakura slightly resembles Sasuke. Just really poor casting by Studiopolis.
Overall the episode was not that exciting, so on to the next episode.
