  • Better than the pilot!

    This episode continues on from the last episode where we are introduced to the world of Bleach even more. How Hollows are formed adds a pretty neat twist that they were originally human souls who refuse to let go of their attachments with the world and become tainted. This was presented well with the main hollow at hand being Inoue's brother who was turned into a as a result of not being able to leave Inoue's side, though for this event to happen right after Ichigo becomes a shinigami seems a little too convenient, especially since the brother has been gone for three years. The introduction of Rukia as a student was pretty amusing though; it was pretty bizarre yet funny when she used Ichigo's sisters clothes for her own and is presently occupying his closet.
