Hello Bleach fans, its time to review a new episode of Bleach. I hope all of our American users had a wonderful July 4th weekend. I celebrated my dog's 13th birthday yesterday and she was very happy with her presents and carrot cake. Enough of my weekend, on with the review!
I thought this was a very good and informative episode. Wefinally know what Inaba's character motivation is. Although I still am not totally convinced of Inaba's "evilness," but his motivation makes sense. Inaba is basically a disgruntled worker who worked on a massive powerpoint presentation for his company, only to be given the pink slip. Inaba is almost the Bleach equivalent of Jeffery Katzenberg. Inaba has a pretty good laugh, but I do not know what was up with some of those noises...no comment. We also learn that Inaba is the creator of the mod-souls (non-canon) and Nozomi is apparently the first mod-soul (non-canon).
The things I had an issue with was the drug and how exactly did Ichigo get out of the cleaner? How got Ichigo out was never really explained other than Urahara getting him out of the Dangai. The drug thing was a little odd. If the drug can stop the thought process, shouldn't Inaba be in a vegetative state, at worst dead? If you stop the thought process, you are brain dead and cannot sustain life on your own. So my question is how was Inaba capable of still having enough brain activity to talk, let along stab someone, and swallow a pill. Then I reminded myself that this was filer, and I was over thinking everything.
I loved the animation and the music selection in the episode, especially those cgi monitors, it looked nice. The omakes are back, and this week's omake was meh. First I don't know why Pierrot keeps giving Suì-Fēng the hots for Yoruichi, when their relationship in the manga is nothing more of a master and apprentice sort of relationship. I have no problem with people's sexual orientations, but I feel that creating that sort of relationship for the sake of fan service is kind of insulting. It is a stereotype of Lesbians, that I really think needs to be removed from society. Plus it creates nothing but problems on this site.
Overall I thought this was another great episode, and I can't wait for next week's episode.
