Stopped watching after it was revealed that the point of the whole filler was about friendship and Kageroza pulled out the "Friends are useless" line out of chapter I-1 from the book of generic shounen. Ichigo probably powers up after that because he has friends and can't lose or something but I don't care anymore about this filler.
Karakurizer >>>>>>>>>>>>> Amagai > Zanpakutou rebellion pt. 1 > Bounto > Zanpakutou rebellion pt. 2 > Omakes & Filling episodes > Reigai.
So.....instead of stabbing Kageroza/Nozomi from behind, Rukia decides to casually walk in to help Renji hold off KageNomi's zanpakutou. I don't know much about swordfighting, but common sense is screaming at me right now.
I mean, shiiiit, she literally walked up and PUT HER SWORD IN THE MIDDLE OF THEM. OMG.
Also, this whole "I don't want to rule Soul Society, I want to destroy it" is silly. What are you possibly going to do after you destroy Soul Society?
well the last few episodes weren't that impressive anymore, the whole conclusion about Kageroza was kinda lame but I didn't expect some great twist so it's fine with me. Still it was/is a very good filler arc in my opinion as it kept my entertained for a very long time. oh and it really had some nice animation
Yes, the first half of this arc was very very good, probably some of the best Bleach episodes after the SS arc.
It's boring having the captains fight them self, it not interesting at all, and still they kind of had the same happen in the previous filler arc, Shinigamis fighting their own sword (same weapon/style/attacks).
I like this episode for the fact that the fan battles are cool and well animated, also that they used the sound of sonido to show Chads super speed movement.
Although is still glorifies the primary rule of anime and more specifically, fillers: that Story > Logic. There is Rukia casually walking up to assist Renji instead of attacking. But there's still the whole no one using Bankai (except Komamura). I'd figure with the Reigai being as selfish as they are doing anything to win, and with their slight power boost, they would have Bankai'd out a while ago. But since its not in the manga, Story > Logic. After all this is just the show, its the manga that we're all interested in, (we're all used figuratively).
Beginning of arc = epic
End of arc = shit
Like all fillers before(except bount, start of that arc was shit too)
Listen to the voice of a very important character for the next arc of the Anime.

They didnt show us main fanservice stuff(filler is big fanservice stuff, yeah) - Full hollow ichigo, we just saw his weak version that did nothing. I think it could be good fight between kageroza and full hollow ichigonator, dont u think so?
All arc is about FRIENDSHIP, I'm really sick of this. It's not fun and not cool to do a tons of arcs about friendship, its boring!
Don't think that I didn't like this arc at all, it was really great at beggining and this kageroza guy is really good antagonist, first fights between caps was awesome too, my favs are Ken-vs-Ken and Komamura-vs-Soifong, epic fights, epic special effects, tons of fun.
But when they started this shit about friendship.... Oh... Kageroza is now another guy "who had no friends and he is evil because of it". Why he cant be just evil? From the begging!
And... there is a lot of things I want to say about this arc but my english is real bad and I hope u will understand what I wanted to say in this little part.
Captains start dissapearing when getting too close to the Dangai = Pretty interesting.
Ichigo taken as a suspect + fake captains begin taking over = Awesome.
Indiferent Nozomi + Kageroza plotting something we are yet to find out = Interesting.
Vice captain fight in the real world against reigai = Fun.
Vice captains defeated, Ichigo weakens, becomes aparent that the animation studio has no idea what the characters' personalities are like, improvise = Second chance.
Captains fight each other = Awesome.
Captains fight again = Boring.
Kageroza + Captains fight yet again, rehashed moves, settings, total clusterfuck of ideas, half-assedness from the animation studio = Third chance.
Nozomi saves the day at Karakura, Yamamoto fails, the captains fight again, more rehashed moves, mediocre motivations, complete personality derailment = Last chance.
Shiba Kukakku riding Jidanbou using Raikahou rehashed, Ganjou beats several captains by using fireworks, out of fucking nowhere = Crossed the line.
Ichigo and Urahara break into the research lab = At least it's not ^.
Captains fight their reigai yet again = STOP.
Kageroza "IM STRONGER THAN THOU BECAUSE I AINT GOT ANY FRIENDS", ICHIGO "I CANT LOSE TO THOSE WEAK ENOUGH TO NOT HAVE FRIENDS, TASTE MY NAKAMATASTIC POWAH AHHHHHHHHHHHH FRIENDSHIP!!!" = Fuck this shit, dropped.
3 more weeks before this crap ends. Ichigo will probably use the Final Getsuga, say something like "You inferior being without friends, cower at the power of my NAKAMA RASENGETSUGA TENSHOU", win and the arc ends as badly as the Zanpakutou Rebellion arc did, and go back to the real characters and story.
