The new opening was very intersting. I like the music as well as the video. The video showed a few shots of the story line thats yet to be seen in the anime and that was in the manga.
[br]Posted on: October 05, 2006, 01:57:55 PM_________________________________________________1st pic shows a cresent moon (i dont know why but whenever i look at it ; it remembers me of the arrancars.

2nd pic is the portal by which the arrancar come into the real world.

3rd pic is Aizen himself in his new outfit.

4th pic represents Aizens plan in absorbing all the souls from the living world.[br]Posted on: October 05, 2006, 02:00:18 PM_________________________________________________5th pic shows use ichigo vs the hollow ichigo

6th pic show Zangetsu (this occurs during the ichigo vs hollow ichigo battle)

7th pic the cero sence is when Ichigo first sees the arrancar and uses his cero on him (not too sure but i think it was Uliquiorra)

8th pic is the hollow mask and u can see its different from the previous one we have seen in the anime. (Its compltely covered his face) Its the one when ichigo goes to the Vizards for help to improve his skills.

Yeah I thought that too but I don' want to get excited for nothing.Anyways those Bleach fillers are
not as bad as those of others (Naruto).

yeah... nice to see all the stuff,
but i think they end the good thought out filler arc too soon...
think of it this way:
the longer the bounto arc stretches and is good, the lesser one-shot-crap-fillers we will get later in the aizen-arc...

Btw did u see in bleach 97 in the opening Aizen holding Hogyokou?However i am not sure whether the fillers are ending..For example if fillers stopped now anime would catch up to the manga in about 30 eps which means 30 weeks.I think that they are going to extend the fillers a little bit.I hope not...

near to every episode with the last opening had some random arrancar/bad guy in it....
we saw grimmjow and ulquiorra for sure, others too but i don't remember them that good...

As much as I am happy now that we finally get to see newer charactersf rom the manga, I'm kinda (really really really) sad that the fillers are going to end soon. :(

I mean, what ttxdragon says is true. Ending the Bount filler now will mean we'll still be getting short crappy fillers later in the Aizen arc. But still...I can't wait to see Luppi or the Vaizards. >_>;

I'm going to miss Nova. T_T

Ohhh. Speaking of the new opening, that rip between the real world and Hueco Mundo (possibly) sent me shivers! :nuts Got me all excited. XD

Ur right we will miss some of these filler characters, but i would prefer seeing the original characters develope (advance) their skills.

i doubt the fillers are ending soon - not to sound all negative or anything: but i think the opening sequence was animated as such to please fans who are growing impatient with the fillers; and want to see some of the second half realized in the anime. myself included.

overall, we've seen too many 'hints' at part 2 from Bleach and especially Naruto - to take anything w/o a grain of salt. ya know?

IMO the fillers have to end soon. They can't stretch out the Bount arc for that much longer. And while the op/ed isn't taken directly from scenes in the anime, they do at least correlate with it. But you're right Mimi, I will miss Nova... :( Though I wonder what they will say to explain their absence from the anime after this arc...

to ideas about that, that i had earlier on:
- the easy one: they will die/that pill will be crushed
- kubo will introduce them in the manga soon, as a kind of kisukes backup plan... thus the anime can say they are to be taken in for 'maintenance' and bring them out later again...

altho i think the first one sounds more probable...

Yes i like the bounts fillers too but yeah its like chewing the same gum over again it wont taste gud. We really need to see new stuff like unseen Bankais, Aizens plan etc.

Theres always the option that Toei took the Steel Saints from Saint Seiya went, nobody will talk about them ever again, like they never existed. These fillers remind me the Asgard Saga.... that's the best filler ever....

Hey guys got another intersting screenshot

Rangiku Matsumoto has tha same stance in chapter 210 page 5 and in the opening song !

I know this is crazy but the I think the fillers will end with Ichigo waking up thinking all of those as a dream. :nod Now that's really crazy! :rofl

According to my calculation Bleach fillers will end in (around) 10 episodes. This is how il explain:

ch 183 - ch 211 (bits of it) were shown in the opening. which is 183-211=28 chapters

If you take 2 chapters per episode that becomes 28/2 = 14 (which is kind of half a season)
A opening song remains for 25-26 episodes.
So wat im saying is fillers will end mid of this season. And all the clips that were shown in the opening will start mid of this season.
The opening was first shown in episode 98; So the mid of this season should be episode 111.

1) The five arrancars under grimmjow's orders

http://i104.photobucket.com/albums/m188/sharinganLS/arrancar.jpg

The five arrancars that are under Grimmjow orders are seen in the opening song. The five figures flying in the sky are those five arrancars. (look closely and u will see 2 huge figures and three small to medium ones)

http://i104.photobucket.com/albums/m188/sharinganLS/arrancar.gif


2) Ichigo about to use a cero on Grimmjow

http://i104.photobucket.com/albums/m188/sharinganLS/cero.jpg

Thats one of the times in the manga where ichigo (not hollow ichigo) used a cero. And its also shown at the end of the opening song.

http://i104.photobucket.com/albums/m188/sharinganLS/Ichigo_Cero.gif


3) Hollow ichigo on top of a building (inside ichigo's mind)

http://i104.photobucket.com/albums/m188/sharinganLS/ichigoBuilding.jpg

Ichigo faces his inner hollow side again. And this time his hollow is standing sideways on the top of a building. The same thing was also shown in the opening song.

http://i104.photobucket.com/albums/m188/sharinganLS/Ichigo_Building.gif


4) Hollow ichigo on top of a building(inside ichigo's mind)

http://i104.photobucket.com/albums/m188/sharinganLS/hollowichiVsIchi2.jpg
http://i104.photobucket.com/albums/m188/sharinganLS/hollowichiVsIchi1.jpg

Ichigo faces his inner hollow side again. And his hollow side shoots a cero at ichigo; seen in the manga and in the opening song.

http://i104.photobucket.com/albums/m188/sharinganLS/HollowIchigo_Vs_Ichigo.gif


5) The six shinigamis that were assigned to Karakura town

http://i104.photobucket.com/albums/m188/sharinganLS/rukia.jpg
http://i104.photobucket.com/albums/m188/sharinganLS/everyone-1.jpg

The six shinigami's that were sent to Karakura town to wait for the arrival of the arrancar are shown in the opening song (Look closely and you will notice all five of them; Rukia is not shown with the other 5 but she is shown in the opening seperately.)

http://i104.photobucket.com/albums/m188/sharinganLS/ruki.png
http://i104.photobucket.com/albums/m188/sharinganLS/everyone.gif


6) Matsumoto, Hitsugaya and Renji using their bankais !!!

http://i104.photobucket.com/albums/m188/sharinganLS/Bankai.jpg

In the opening song we also see all the three shinigami use the bankais /shikai against the arrancars just like in the manga. Matsumoto is shown with the same stance about to fight the arrancar; we also see Hitsugaya using his ice dragon bankai; and Renjii's bankai beleive it or not is also shown in the opening song its the rapidly moving fire on the street (if you see closely you can see the bone like structure of zabimaru).

http://i104.photobucket.com/albums/m188/sharinganLS/Bankais.gif


7) Grandfisher and Ichigo(that might be Kon)

http://i104.photobucket.com/albums/m188/sharinganLS/grandfisher2.jpg
http://i104.photobucket.com/albums/m188/sharinganLS/grandfisher1.jpg

In the manga we all know that Kon (inside Ichigo's body) meets arrancar grandfisher. And i beleive this is shown in the opening song. The scared/suprized ichigo in the opening might be Kon cause they even show the medallion that ichigo uses to switch with Kon. And also the large big foot like hollow thats shown in the intro might be Grandfisher himself (i know his feet dont look like that, but it is huge).

http://i104.photobucket.com/albums/m188/sharinganLS/GrandfisherKON.gif


8) Aizen sitting with his hand over half his face

http://i104.photobucket.com/albums/m188/sharinganLS/aizen.jpg

The opening also showed Aizen sitting in the same fashion as was shown in the manga (when Ulq returned to him with important information).

http://i104.photobucket.com/albums/m188/sharinganLS/Aizen.png


9) The portal used by the arrancar to enter the living world

http://i104.photobucket.com/albums/m188/sharinganLS/hollowPortal.jpg

The portal created by arrancars under Aizen is also shown in the opening song.

http://i104.photobucket.com/albums/m188/sharinganLS/hollow_portal.png


10) Aizen's goal of the distruction of Karakura Town

http://i104.photobucket.com/albums/m188/sharinganLS/realWorld.jpg

Aizen's goal of absorbing all souls from Karakura town as the incredients for his ultimate plan is shown in the opening.

http://i104.photobucket.com/albums/m188/sharinganLS/real_world.png


11)The moon, the night the first arrancar attacked Karakura

http://i104.photobucket.com/albums/m188/sharinganLS/moon.jpg

The night the first bunch of hollows (Grimmjows group) attacked Karakura town; the crescent moon was shown. The crescent moon was also shown when Grandfisher(arrancar) attacked Kon; the same night when Ishida was also attacked by another hollow.

http://i104.photobucket.com/albums/m188/sharinganLS/hollow_mon.png


12) Ichigo's full hollow mask (vizard training)

http://i104.photobucket.com/albums/m188/sharinganLS/IchiMask.jpg

Flashes of Ichigo's full hollow mask (as well as him increasing his raitsu while wearing the mask) when he undertakes the vizard traning is shown in the opening song too.

http://i104.photobucket.com/albums/m188/sharinganLS/Ichigo_with_Mask.gif


13) Hinamori talking to Hitsugaya

http://i104.photobucket.com/albums/m188/sharinganLS/HitsuHana2.jpg
http://i104.photobucket.com/albums/m188/sharinganLS/HitsuHana1.jpg

The opening song also showed Hinamori in the same stance (standing) like in the manga when she spoke to Hitsugaya about saving Aizen.

http://i104.photobucket.com/albums/m188/sharinganLS/Hitsugaya_Hinamori-1.gif


14) Inoue crying

http://i104.photobucket.com/albums/m188/sharinganLS/InoueCrying.jpg

The opening also showed Inoue crying. I beleive that it could be connected to the time when she reveals to Matsumoto how she felt about Ichigo and Rukia.

http://i104.photobucket.com/albums/m188/sharinganLS/Inoue_crying.gif


15) Sad Matsumoto

Also, I couldnt connect it to any manga image but... The opening showed us Ichimaru and Matsumoto (it could be depict Matsumoto's feelings and the way Ichimaru has treated her)

You are joking right?

Bleach fillers ending so soon?

Bleach took less episodes to cover the manga than naruto.

I see Bleach fillers running for at least (sadly but true) 2 years (if the series survives that long)

Sorry for being a realist!!!

The bounts series is ending thats for sure. Bleach isnt like naruto, first off naruto didnt have a season of fillers when they reached their 4th season (they had their first season of fillers in season 6). Also bleach has a lot of gaps in its story where it could include another set of fillers (unlike naruto). In addition they wouldnt be showing all of these clues if they werent going to show it this season. Buddy your not being realistic, if you were realistic you would have seen what is shown in the opening and made connection to the manga. There wasnt even a single bount in that opening, nor were there any new filler charcters. Every sec of the opening foreshadows wats coming after this filler arc.

You need to be realistic and optimistic. Just because naruto has gone downhill since episode 135 doesnt mean that bleach will follow the same path.

The manga series hasn't covered that much ground!! And I don't think theres enough manga story telling for Bleach to jump back to the true story.

But, i'm trying to keep it real. Before anybody gets their hopes up!!! Cuz in my case everytime somebody posted that the naruto filler were ending, it always ended up being fake. I know bleach is not naruto but remember they don't make bleach episodes in two days nor a weeks takes a lot time and aired episodes have months of preparation the manga is different it doesn't take that long to produce!!

Again, if it happens cool...awesome...open tha champagne for the celebration....

But just don't get to worked up about it!!

I know wat u mean. Most naruto fans including myself feel that its stupid to think that the fillers will end this season. I too gave up hope of the fillers ending this season. However since its in the opening it is abt 100% sure that it willl end this season.

I agree there isnt must material. They have only 5 volumes since the fillers began however I think the bleach has learnt from the mistakes made by the naruto series. They probably have decided to continue the story and then show some more fillers later. Like I said bleach has more gaps that could be filled with fillers unlike naruto.

Episode 110 should be the last bount episode according to my calculations(or less than 110). Anyways we shall see in due time.

Hope you are right!!

One last thing, I haven't seing the opening, but even if no Bountu were shown in it could mean another arc is still brewing. The same way they invented bountu they can create something else!!!

And one of the reason they probably won't show anything is to keep the suspense. I'm just saying it could be a tactic.

But lets hope for the best!!!

THESE fillers seem to be ending pretty soon,
sharingan, your list of things is really amazing - i wouldnt have found that many. never.

my guess:
bounto-fillers end halfway this season,
we get part of the mangastory - most likely the vaizards approaching ichigo, grandfisher-attack, grimmjow-attack.
new filler arc involving the vaizards, ichigo and hichigo fights and such stuff.

remember how they stretched the hougyouku-activation time from 3month to one year?
the bounto-arc shouldnt have taken more than about one, maybe two month of this year.
i'd say the opening indicates a intermezzo from fillers, which will continue the mainstory and then get back to some new fillers. laughing@you is right with his point that the manga isnt that much further yet.
since ~180ch made ~60 episodes, and we have now only 70 more chapters... a further filler-arc would be highly possible ^^ (and i dont think the naruto-fillers can end that soon either... naruto-anime moved way faster than bleach-anime)

so. summing up what i wrote above:
end of current fillers ~ january 07
manga-story intermezzo ~ 5-10 eps
new filler-arc based on intermezzo ~1year running.

i, too, don't have hopes for the anime to continue the manga-story that soon other than what i mentioned above...

Wow I just watched ep 102 now and could it be only me or is the animating team teasing us?
First and foremost was the opening scene, that shot of the research institute tottaly reminded me of the Las Noches fortress from the current manga arc. there where also many other much more subtle implied similarities present in this ep. it really looks like they are trying to get on with the story soon. either that or it means that ther will still be a whole lot of filler eps and they are incorporating dejavu moments and "cameo apearances" as a sort of appology and to keep us fans interested.

No news yet, but I have to say that I don't mind watching the Bleach filers at all. If the fillers are ending after the bounto I could say that there maybe about 10-15 more episodes? That's just my estimation.
