Before I begin my review, which I am so sorry for it being so ridiculously late, here is a video explaining why I haven't been here as much as I would have like to be.
Now one with the review!
Basically my whole review can be summed down to one word…Harribel. Harribel is my favorite (current(ish) Espada, and I just think she is full of win and Laura Bailey just makes her so much more boss. Laura as Harribel has been one of the smartest casting choices in dub. Although I believe both Laura Bailey and Megumi Ogata are equally talented woman, Laura's Harribel just has more sex appeal to me and I don't know I "feel her" more. The only thing not full of win were some of the drawings of Harribel. Her head is just drawn so oddly and does a total disservice to her gorgeous character design.
Speaking of odd drawings, some of the closeups of Yammy were very odd. In particular, the random bold line of closeups of Yammy's face, not only does it look ugly (and not in a good way), but its very distracting and thematically doesn't fit in with the rest of the show.
Overall decent, episode, can't wait for the next one!
