Goof: In the flashbacks of Ukitake explaining the Combat Badge, he is holding the badge in both hands with his eyes closed. In the actual episode (episode 63: "Rukia's Decision, Ichigo's Feelings") Ukitake gave the badge to Ichigo before explaining what it was and his eyes were open the whole time.
In this episode, we see Ichigo cut deep into Tsukishima's left arm. In the manga version (chapter 455 page 17) Ichigo cuts Tsukishima's arm right off.
Goof: When Tsukishima is about to attack Ichigo, Rukia turns around and we see sparks of Fullbringer light and hear Riruka's voice. If you look at Rukia's right arm in this scene, the sleeve of her kimono is shredded. When Rukia jumps in front of Tsukishima to protect Ichigo, the right sleeve of her kimono is undamaged, yet when she is in Ichigo's arms, her kimono is shredded.
In this episode, when Ichigo goes to Soul Society to ask for Ginjo's body, Zangetsu is drawn wrong. In episode 361, it's drawn more like a meat cleaver, whereas in this episode, it's made more triangular.
In the entire history of Bleach, Ginjo is the only opponent Ichigo has actually killed.
When Rukia thinks back on Ichigo's time as a Shinigami, the events after the first 8 are shown out of order. After the eighth event (Ichigo as a full Hollow against Ulquiorra) it should be:
event 9: Ichigo in Final Getsugatensho mode
event 10: Ichigo when he's losing his powers and Rukia starts to fade from his sight
event 11: Just before Ichigo gets his powers back from Rukia
event 12: Ichigo just after he gets his powers back from Rukia
Goof: In this episode, when flashbacks are shown of Ukitake explaining the Combat Badge, he's holding the badge in his hands. In episode 63, when Ukitake first gives Ichigo the badge, he does so before explaining what the badge is and does.
The scene in the construction site where Ichigo first meets Tsukishima didn't happen in the manga. Ichigo didn't meet him until after he met Ginjo's group at Xcution.
Ichigo didn't throw his Shinigami badge into the river in the manga.
In the manga chapter for this episode (chapter 426) when Yokochin shows up, Ichigo remembers him, but pretends not to to annoy Yokochin. This scene was not in the episode.
In the manga version of this episode (chapter 424) the ghost whose glasses Karin breaks with her chopsticks is to her right, while in the episode, he is to her left.
When Orihime, Sado, Rukia, Ishida and Renji appear after Ichigo's fight with Aizen, they are standing from left to right in the order above. In the manga, from left to right it is Renji, Sado, Rukia, Ishida and Orihime.
After the dust settles around Aizen where he crashed after Ichigo hit him with the Mugetsu, we see his right hand, which holds his sword, is empty. Yet he's later holding it the way he was before he was attacked, with his hand sealed to the hilt of the sword.
During the "To Be Continued" scene, Ichigo's sword strike against Aizen shows off a new version of his zanpakuto. Curiously, the hilt is drawn in a more pronounced shape of a swastika. While a stigmatized taboo among the western world because of Nazi Germany, it remains widely used symbol in Eastern religions, specifically in Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism.
This episodes features the second time an Espada uses Gran Ray Cero.
In this episode, we see Gin's eye color for the second time in the series. The first time was in episode 48, but in that episode his eye color was red, wherein this episode his eye color is green.
When Ichigo dons his Mask, the stripes are black, but for the rest of the Episode, the stripes are a dark red color. In the Manga, the stripes were always Black.
In the manga chapter of this episode, Hiyori is cut clean in half at the waist by Gin, while in this episode, she is merely wounded.
Halibel is incorrectly referred to as a Vasto Lord. Currently, in the manga, no Vasto Lord has been revealed. Furthermore, as Vasto Lords are states as being stronger than the average captain, it is unlikely that someone beaten by an Arrancar would have been a Vasto Lord.
In the flashback, Barragan says, "Welcome to our castle, Los Noches" to Aizen. This is the exact phrase Aizen says to Orihime in episode 143.
