I am so sorry I am late on both my reviews. The last two weeks for me have been a whole lot of "you really don't want to know." This clip montage perfectly summarizes the last two weeks of my life.[1](play until 39 seconds)[2][3][4] [5]Yeah…anyway enough holding back, review time.

Okay I am going to perfectly honest with everyone, other than the incredibly bizarre bullcrap happening in my life, the other reason why these were so delayed was because…these episodes bore me. As Arrancar109 pointed out, the last two episodes,especially episode 254, are the literal definition of filler episodes, and he is absolutely right. I mean the pacing in the last two episodes was awful to the point where it was kinda hard to watch. I find it hard to believe that a group of powerful high ranking officers and Zanpakutō spirits take literally an entire 24-minute episode to defeat a few hundred Menos. Now I'm not saying Menos are weak, but for almost a dozen captain class Soul Reapers to struggle against gillian class Menos is mind boggling, especially when not even 30 episodes later, the Visoreds come and defeat roughly the same number of Menos and Hooleer in roughly 5 minutes. These kinds of filler episodes really make me wish that the Soul Reapers of the Gotei 13 were not featured as much. Do I dislike them? No, (although I do believe at times they are overhyped, but that is a different conversation) but the fact that the filler really makes them…well putting this as politely as I can…suck. I simply cannot comprehend how you can take such powerful characters and make them weak, pathetic, and frankly stupid.

Other than the pacing, the animation was okay, nothing spectacular, but nothing horrible either. Overall the last two episodes were a bore.

Final Rundown (253)

  • Story 7/10

  • Script adaptation 10/10

Final Rundown(254)

  • Story 4/10
  • Art/Animation 8/10
  • Sound Effects 10/10
  • Script adaptation 10/10
  • Music 8.5/10
  • Acting 9/10


I give Bleach episode 253 a 8.6 out of 10 and episode 254 8.3 out of 10.

Join me next Saturday when I review episode 255 dubbed, and please watch Bleach as it leads the new Toonami this Saturday. In order to get more new content, we need to support Toonami and watch the shows. Look, even if you don't like the English dub of Bleach, please tune in for the sake of future anime fans, do it for them.
