Hi Bleach fans it's that time of the week again; time for new Bleach! Overall I don't have too much to say about the episode due to the majority of it being filler. The filler moments were meh (could have lived with out Mr. Chicken) and even if you didn't read the manga, it was obvious that certain events were stretched out, but coming out of the Reigai (shivers) train wreck, anything is more decent at this point. The animation was very distorted at points ( I know it's filler, but I feel Pierrot could have done better), and while there were a number of great shots, there was also a number of not so great shots. I was very surprised that Pierrot already animated Jackie's backstory. We only found out about Jackie a little over a month ago, and normally it takes about 3-4 months to animate an episode of Bleach. Either Kubo revealed some things to Pierrot (Allah Arikawa and Bones with FMA:B) or the Pierrot animators can work in an extremely short time frame, I believe it is the former. Jackie's seiyu gave an excellent performance, especially with her childhood flashback.
Overall the episode was decent, and I can't wait for next week.
