  • At least we know everyone is safe.

    Although the previous episode ended hinting that Ishida may have been killed, he is shown later on to be held captive and alive for interrogation. Other than Ichigo's training session to summon his Bankai, not one major thing happened in this episode besides a bunch of minor filler stuff, like the third officer of the fourth squad speaking openly about the fourth squads traffic of injured death gods, and Orihime being captured by the eleventh squad. It was reassuring though to see Ganji, Ishida, and Chad all bandaged up, even if they are in prison. It makes me wonder how much money Bleach saves from all of these flashbacks though.moreless
  • A mixture of stuff happens in this epi

    Ishida is going to rescue Rukia when a bad guy makes him fall asleep and Renji is thinking about all the good times he had with Rukia and he breaks out of his cell. Meanwhile, Ichigo has stabbed a dummy which brings Zangetsu into the real world and Ichigo has to make Zangetsu submit in three days in order to acheive Bankai. There are a lot of swords to pick from, but only one is strong enough to make Zangetsu submit. Will Ichigo find it? Orihime is held prisoner and Ishida wakes up to find him in a cell with Ganju and Chad. Will they escape? Will Ichigo acheive Bankai? Will he play dirty?

    The answer is ... I don't know!moreless

    • Yourichi: (referring to the tenshintai) If you stab this with Zangetsu, it can forcibly bring it into the manifested state. In other words, we can bring the zanpakuto into this world. However... with this method the manifestation is limited to three days. During that time, you must defeat the manifested Zangetsu, and force him into submission. If you're unable to do that...
      Ichigo: (stabs the tenshintai) You don't have to go into the details... If you're saying there's no other way it can be done, then I've gotta do it.

    • Yachiru: What do you think, Ara... Ara... Um, I forget. Would you mind telling me what your name is again?
      Aramaki: Oh, I don't expect you to remember. After all, it's only been ten years since you took me on. Just call me MakiMaki. MakiMaki's fine. Plain old MakiMaki.
      Yachiru: MakiMaki? (giggles) That name's really weird! (laughs)
      Aramaki : What do you mean it's weird!? You're the one who came up with the nickname!

    • Uryu: Ganju!? Is that really... I don't believe it, you're still alive! You didn't look so strong, so I thought maybe you had-
      Ganju: I hear what you're saying... I was thinkin' the exact same thing about you.
