  • The disaster before the storm.

    An episode preparing you for the main event which will soon be Grimmjow vs. Ichigo. The confrontation between Grimmjow and Ulquiorra really added some great tension to the entire thing, and although short lived, the fight between the two espada was also nice. The fight between Grimmjow and Ichigo wasn't the greatest in terms of aesthetic value and budget productions, but everything surrounding it was great; just the way that it is already setting up Ulquiorra vs. Ichigo--the 2 to 3 hour time limit of being trapped in that dimension--and how Ichigo turns into hollow form at the end of the episode, all just awesome prepatory stuff.moreless

  • Grimmjow tricks Ulquiorra and the fight between Ichigo and Grimmjow finally begins.

    Well this was a good episode. The fight between Grimmjow and Ulquiorra was pretty short but i guess that is logical cause otherwise they Ulquiorra would have defeated Grimmjow. Also very clever plot twist to put Ulquiorra in that caja negacion. Ok the fight hasn't really started but it will soon, now that Ichigo has become a vaizard. I'm really looking forward to see Grimmjow release his zanpaktou that should be great. Well and for the rest the part of Renji and Ishida was somewhat funny but not really, i don't think that Szayel will let them go so easily. And Nel stays her cute little self. So next episode the long awaited fight Yeah!!moreless
  • Exciting! Grimmjow and Ichigo go at it...

    Very good episode. Ulquiorra arrives to find Grimmjow, Inoue, and Ichigo. Grimmjow seems almost surprised, but not worried in the slighest despite their rankings. Grimmjow and Ulquiorra fight and Grimmjow uses this device to trap Ulquiorra for a short amount of time. Inoue refuses to heal Ichigo, but Ichigo asks her too so he can fight Grimmjow. So then the rematch begins! Things start off pretty evenly until Grimmjow unleashes the most powerful Cero which causes Ichigo at the last minute to break out his Hollow mask to survive. Plus, Grimmjow said they did "something" to Inoue's body while they had her under their control. Interesting. Can't wait until the next episode, which won't be until 3 weeks have passed! *sigh*moreless
  • Grimmjow vs Ulquorria then Ichigo, great episode!

    This is a really good episode. There is a lot of action in it. Firstly Grimmjow must deal with Ulquiorra before even fighting Ichigo. Then after that he will fight Ichigo, trying to get him to bring out his hollow. There is only one part of this episode that is kind of boring, the bit where Ishida and renji are with the two weird hollows. This episode also shows some new powers of the espada, the Caja Negacion and Grey Ran Cero which was cool. I really liked this episode and you should watch it cause its a really good one.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Grimmjow reveals the most powerful form of Cero, the Gran Rey Cero(Grand King's Cero) which can only be used by the Espada. Also Ulquiorra uses a Cero similar to this but it is less powerful and it is green instead of blue.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Grimmjow: Aizen gave each Espada a "Negation box" to use to punish our subordinates, I used mine.

      Orihime: Caja Negacion? (Negation box)

      Grimmjow: It's a powerful tool that can permanently seal away normal hollows in another dimension. But they're not made to be used against Espada. Considering his reiatsu(spirit power) we've probably got two or three hours max before he breaks free.

    • Orihime: An incredible reiatsu is engulfing Kurosaki-kun's injury. I can't... reject it! Who on earth did this?
      Grimmjow It was Ulquiorra. I'll teach him what happens ... when you try to steal someone else's prey.

    • Nel:(holding her hands to her head and with tears in her eyes) Itsygo! Itsygo!
      Inoue: It's okay. Kurosaki-kun will win.
      Nel: You dunno that!
      Inoue:(smiling) But he said "I'll definitely win", remember?
      Nel: Everyone... everyone says stuff like dat! And den they lose! Ya can't tell who's gonna win from dat!
      Inoue: You think so?
      Nel: Yeah! Itsygo's prob'ly scared! People always say dere gonna win when dey're scared!
      Inoue: Kurosaki-kun wouldn't do that. Kurosaki-kun doesn't try to hide the fact that he's afrid by saying he's going win. Kurosaki-kun is a kind person. Whenever he says something like that, he says it like he's swearing an oath. He did that when he appeared in front of me as a Shinigami for the first time, too.

    • Ichigo: Inoue. Please heal me. Fix my injuries. And ... his, too.
      Grimmjow: Bad idea. I don't need your pity.
      Ichigo: It's not pity. You want us to fight on equal footing, right? Or do you want to save that burn for an excuse when you lose?

    • While playing a word game after Szayel leaves, Pesche refers to a Den Den Mushi, a device like a telephone that comes from the anime "One Piece"
