    Re: Bleach EP 245 Discussion

    Ichigo has, as of now, faught Zangetsu, Muramasa, Hyorinmaru, Getsubori, Haineko and Tobiume, Byakuya, Rukia's sword (TWICE), and Senbonzakura (TWICE). Of those only 4, MAYBE five if we count Rukia's blade, make reasonable amounts of sense as to why he'd confront them. While the focus has no doubt not been complete on him, he's more or less been at LEAST given a solid presence in every episode, despite the fact that he was the LAST person they should have sent to Soul Society.

    Re: Bleach EP 245 Discussion

    The only thing which annoys me a bit about this filler is that it kind of destroys the image I had of Zanpakuto spirits. I mean, they all look human like(or humanoid) >.<

    I preferred it when Hyourinmaru was an ice dragon and Zabimaru was a monkey >.> Showed that Zanpakutos came in all shapes and sizes. Now they all seem to look humanoid in one way or another. Also, I kind of disagree with a few of the representations, but hey, I'm being nitpicky lol

    Other than that, the arc is going ok I suppose. The fights aren't really all that wow to me, but they're decent.

    sorry and please take it not in the wrong way.
    You sound like the people complaining about Naruto's air time.
    As per Naruto, Ichigo is the main character in Bleach, it all started with him becoming a shinigami and will end also with him.

    All the other stories and characters in the manga/anime can be considered "fillers", otherwise we would be talking of a 1 men standing show.

    Said that, Ichigo is not my favorite character therefore I try to enjoy any opportunity given to the others like is happening with this filler.
    It is thanks to this filler that we are discovering the true physique of the zanpakotou which for me is not something to be ungrateful/unhappy for.

    yes they could do/show us more, but then we would have the "Ichigo boys" complaining about the limited air time given to him.

    I am afraid that we are witnessing (as we say in Italy) the story of a short plaid. No matter how hard you pull either your feet or your head will stick out.
    with this manga/anime you cannot please everybody
    Naruto's best text line: "nice to meet u im Jiraiya, u can give me a love letter later?"

    Yes Ichigo is the main character, annoying and bland as his character is. The issue is the plot has to make everyone absolutely retarded to send him into this situation when people like Chad and Ishida, whose powers CAN'T betray them, would have been far wiser. I won't deny the guy his right to a certain amount of focus, but as of right now he's not only the LAST person they should have sent, he's also entering into confrontations and being the forefront of the striking force despite there being practically NO reason why it would be as such.

    Re: Bleach EP 245 Discussion

    I'll probably stop watching this filler arc if they show Yamamoto's Zanpaktou (edit: In any form other than what we know from the manga! ). Heck, I might stop watching fillers, at all, ever.

    I don't care how much money they make or what, they are starting to just run rampant with Kubo's characters, and I don't like it. Killing Zanpaktous left and right while having a full on betryal of one of the most in-depth captains, while showing off zanpaktou materializations of swords we have yet to see almost anything from...

    If Kubo hadn't been the one to draw these zanpaktou spirits for the animators, I would have never watched the first episode. Besides, the facial animation of the charachters is so off, you have to know thier specific features and voice to recognize them ! Kenpachi doesn't look like Kenpachi, he looks like some crazy hunchback, and his voice, Taicho's haori, and eyepatch (and so on) are what makes me recognize him, not his face, like when Kubo draws him.

    As far as this being better than the manga, I completely disagree. I'm really excited to see what happens next manga, while the next filler anime just has me wondering what piece of cannon information they will exploit as hard as they can next episode.

    Maybe Yoruichi's Zanpaktou spirit will materialize and spoil the manga some more for us... awesome. After all, we see in ONE PANEL she *does* have a Zanpaktou, so we give it an entire "black cat" based personality and powers, and no one will care ! I can just see the studio execs bugging Kubo for this new material "they will use only in the anime" ... gah.

    ...

    Edit: If they wanted to show off the abilities of the Zan's, they should have had Yamamoto hold a competition of VC vs. VC. Taicho vs. Taicho, and winner of Taichos vs a few selects, such as Yoruichi and Yamamoto. It would be easy enough to keep Shinigami both to weak and to powerful to exchange a few blows on the sidelines. I know that's boring and cliche, but I guess I'm just saying I know they need fillers, but most animes don't try to rewrite the story with them ...

    Would have served the same purpose, without this crap about killing Zanpaktous and made up materialized forms of swords, that we still don't even know what they do...

    strongest fire v. strongest ice, sounds promising because of no "fierce fight" label attached to it.

    Re: Bleach Theater & Arcade Mega Convo Thread

    After hearing Harribel's English voice again, I realized I recognized it, so I looked it up.

    Lo and behold, my favorite sexy lady from FMA, Lust, is also one of my favorite sexy ladies from Bleach!

    Although, I gotta say....that voice suits Lust much more than it does Harribel.

    Hmm... I agree that I found the voice actress's performance more satisfying with Lust than Harribel, but I think that is more because of the character than the VA.

    Lust was much more vivacious as a character than Harribel. The sultry voice sort of suits the general idea of a character like Harribel IMO, but because Harribel shows such little emotion, the delivery comes across as sort of flat. (Harribel reads like a flat character in the manga; so, this flat performance really does match her manga depiction well to me.)
