    Umm wasn’t ichigo’s “first” hollow encounter when he was a kid walking with his mom… meaning after he was born… and the fullbringers “inherit” their powers from before they were born due to hollow attacking/killing their mother.
    as nicnac stated, masaki kurosaki could be something more than a human… maybe she was a fullbringer herself. anyone care to think on that?
    so consider this.
    isshin – shinigami
    masaki – fullbringer
    Ichigo – Human(fullbringer powers from the mother)/shinigami/Hollow, a hybrid if you may.

    Karin/Yuzu, maybe they have not tapped into their full potential as ichigo did. his realization of being a shinigami was when it was unlocked by rukia’s involvement, but his true powers were revealed when he underwent urahara’s method.
    give it time and maybe, just maybe, kubo might have them undergo some sort of training to be powerful.
    having yuzu and karin becoming shinigami/human.

    their boost in spiritual energy is an obvious combination of their parents but ichigo possessed the dominant side of it, that being the shinigami powers that was locked within.

    this theory could possibly be the reason as to why ichigo has power of each three classifications so far.

    the fullbringer powers inherited from his mother
    shinigami powers inherited from his father
    his hollow powers which he attained whilst unlocking his true shinigami powers.

    this may be flawed in someways but for now, i’ll wait till kubo himself proves it wrong.

    • Darkfish15 - February 22, 2011 at 11:32 am #

      The fullbringers show hollow powers. If anything they are hollow/human hybrids. Ichigo is a shinigami/human hybrid. He’s using a “fullbring” (please notice the freaking quotations unlike everyone else) to pull his shinigami power out of his soul using the badge as a catalyst since it was imprinted with a major dose of his reiatsu. (much like how the unborn fullbringers were imprinted by hollow reiatsu while in the womb) ichigo isn’t showing actual fullbring capabilities, he’s just using the same principle to pull his reiatsu back into his body and get his powers back. Make sense? I think so. In the end (after gaining the fullbringers’ hollow reiatsu as well) ichigo should be back into his vaizard/human combo we left him in, if not a little watered down.

      • Darkfish15 - February 22, 2011 at 11:35 am #

        Though I won’t knock the possibility of his mother being attacked and whatnot it just doesn’t make as much sense to do that when my way is much simpler and logical with what we’ve been given. Why change what we know about the mother and go through the trouble you know?

      • Roby - February 22, 2011 at 2:14 pm #

        The smartest theory of the last 4 weeks. :)

      • Darkfish15 - February 22, 2011 at 5:08 pm #

        Considering I’ve been saying it for about four weeks I’d have to agree

    • kayori1928 - February 22, 2011 at 3:27 pm #

      A fullbringer becomes one when their mother is attacked by a hollow before their birth. Masaki, knowing she was the wife of Isshin, it would make sense that she had at least one encounter with a hollow before Ichigo was born.

      • bubba gump - February 23, 2011 at 6:29 am #

        I agree with you that being Isshin’s wife, she would have had at least one encounter with a hollow b4 Ichigo was born. Here is a similar idea, that I thought of, with a little twist. What if Masaki was affected by hollow reiatsu that wasn’t actually from a hollow. Here’s my line of thinking. Most people believe that Isshin has or at least did have powers similar to Ichigo’s, including the final GT. With that line of thought, it would only make sense that Isshin had gone through a hollowfication at some point, becoming a Vizard. That being said, isn’t it possible that the hollow reiatsu that affected Masaki b4 Ichigo was born came not from some unknown hollow, but rather from Isshin due to a hollowfication. It’s just a thought.

      i hate to do this but i brought that up less than a page ago…

    • Winchester - February 23, 2011 at 7:13 am #

      This is like supernatural with the yellow-eyed demon thing. So original

  2. Devolution - February 22, 2011 at 11:38 am #

    Wow…the anime screwed the ending sooooo badly. If the anime could give Harribel a past, then why couldn’t it have explained what happened to Kensei? Secondly…simply cutting out as Ichigo had a talk with his friends instead of the touching Rukia fading before his eyes? What the crap is that?

    • Darkfish15 - February 22, 2011 at 11:41 am #

      Isnt that supposed to be in the next episode? Did that even come out yet I don’t see it on any sites (5:41 central time America)

      • JBL41 - February 22, 2011 at 11:53 am #

        watch it at its already out 310

      • OPknight - February 22, 2011 at 5:59 pm #

        i think next episode is a filler. 311

    • JBL41 - February 22, 2011 at 11:47 am #

      Haha you probably can’t understand why they change the last part, the reason why the last part was different is probably meant for it to connect it to the upcoming fillers

      Notice that ichigo hasn’t lost his powers completely yet at the last part and that he can still see rukia, he woke up in her house in Soul Society instead of his and is only 10 days after he collapse as compared to the manga which is 1 month and urahara explained about the stages that ichigo is undergoing that he will collapse again(in the manga he collapse only once) that will probably occur later after a day,weeks, month or year. Basing on the manga which is a month so that means ichigo has still powers for 20 days more or less and is enought to fit in and see some action in the upcoming fillers which i read from J.J. that the next filler arc was titled “Invading Army Arc”.

      • J.J. - February 22, 2011 at 12:25 pm #

        Yes I posted that 2 weeks ago and the number of episode for the Invading Army Arc if the sources i read was true is 26 episodes = this would be about 6 months more or less

    • flyingpig - February 22, 2011 at 11:53 am #

      harribel’s past was not random, it was kubo’s idea but he couldn’t fit it in the manga. other than that it is as JBL41 wrote, they have some fillers and that was their way of connecting them

    • Mshenzi - February 22, 2011 at 11:54 am #

      How was the animation team supposed to show us Kensei going up against Wonderwise and possibly losing, if the mangaka himself didn’t even cover it in the manga.
      And unless you have actually watched the raw episode for this week(Episode 310) then I’m not sure of what you are taking about.

      • Hm... - February 22, 2011 at 6:24 pm #

        That’s why its animation, they tend to do their work independent on their own but ofc they have to ask the author if this is ok or not. Like the main topic, why they did something about harribels past.

      • Devolution - February 22, 2011 at 7:17 pm #

        It was released subbed this morning. Yeah I didn’t know they had another shit filler arc. I had hoped they would do the sane thing and…let it go to hiatus. So, yeah I didn’t get that they would save the Rukia disappearance for the end of the filler arc.

    • sctr - February 22, 2011 at 9:01 pm #

      i think – im sure that now there will be a lot of fillers and the fillers’s end will be the disappearing rukia

    • Timmy - February 23, 2011 at 6:44 am #

      hmm, i can understand your frustration coz the manga ending was more awesome and everybody loves kensei. but here is my explanation of the two matters:

      Ending – notice how they added an extra bit to urahara’s explanation. they said that ichigo has NOT lost his powers yet and will get KO’d a second time and that is when he’ll lose his powers. then notice the title of episode 312. we are getting a anew 2nd division captain, meaning a new filler arc. my guess is that ichigo will fight through the next filler arc, then get ko’d at the end. and the rukia scene will take place at the end of the filler arc.

      Kensei (pessimistic explanation) – harribel’s backstory is most likely canon, this is because kubo works VERY closely with the anime and most likely briefed the story to them or something. now harribel was espada 3. and kensei had his only major battle cut out. this means that kensei is probabaly and afterthought to kubo himself so kubo didnt bother giving them extra content for kensei.

      Kensei (optimistic explanation) – kensei’s powers are super fucking awesome and kubo didnt want them seen before the big reveal of it. much like how soifon didnt use bankai in the bount arc (it was saved up for the epic reveal in the barragan fight)

    • Timmy - February 23, 2011 at 6:47 am #

      misunderstood your kensei comment. same explanations still though. either he’s just an afterthought to kubo or there are some aftereffects of the bankai that he doesnt want seen yet. tbh, im leaning towards the afterthought explanation.

  3. flyingpig - February 22, 2011 at 12:02 pm #

    on a sidenote i am slightly frustrated at the idea of using this type of animation for an episode like that… whereas more important episodes had such crappy quality

    • flyingpig - February 22, 2011 at 12:03 pm #

      but i am pleased with getting the extra mayuri parts

    • JBL41 - February 22, 2011 at 12:14 pm #

      This just means that probably their going to continue with this type of quality and animation from now on well that is good for me

  4. lesbiangirl22 - February 22, 2011 at 1:09 pm #

    So, the Manga doesn’t show us what happened Kensei and Mashiro… Then the anime doesn’t show it but instead fucking extends the last episode into filler scenes explaining why there will be fillers… God Bleach is failing in the writing department.

    • Timmy - February 23, 2011 at 6:49 am #

      okay, kensei and mashiro aren’t all that important to call their exclusion any sort of significant “failure”

      • JBL41 - February 23, 2011 at 6:55 am #

        And mashiro’s face was half bashed by wonderweiss so she is probably lying around recovering herself after the fight and FKT

  5. von - February 22, 2011 at 2:01 pm #

    could someone explain what happen in the previous manga, because i’m loss at the part where ichigo tries t cut the teddy bear,then all i see was some flashes then the teddy bear went KO. what exactly did he do to take it do?

    • Darkfish15 - February 22, 2011 at 5:09 pm #

      Pretty much a getsuga, just shaped weird like a rasenshuriken

  6. Bob the Builder - February 22, 2011 at 2:18 pm #

    it is unfortunate that there is going to be filler, but keep in mind that if we didn’t have the filler. We might only get 5 more episodes tops before we catch up to the manga. take a look at how many chapters fill up one episode of anime. Maybe the anime should have seasons, like our western shows have, in which case this would be the last episode till next fall. I think as corny as they are I prefer filler to seasons any day.

    • flyingpig - February 22, 2011 at 3:21 pm #

      actually they do, but you have to buy the dvds to see which episodes are from what season. not that it matters; besides i really hope that in the next 6 months the plot will have thickened up a bit if it isn’t just battles and ‘training’ as it is now then technically it would take less chapters in each episode

      • anon - February 22, 2011 at 3:51 pm #

        but then when isshin protected kon from grand fisher he used a kind of charm from masaki is that charm also a fullbring?

      • Bob the Builder - February 23, 2011 at 4:04 am #

        The seasons on DVD is just a marketing tool. It isn’t applied when it is new programming on tv. An example would be this, 52 weeks in a year right? now for tv programming usually a tv show, in america at least, gives you about 18 to 25 episodes for a season of new content and airs it on a weekly basis. the rest of the year is filled with different programming or reruns. This doesn’t happen in anime. At best you get a week or two of a break from new episodes.

      • flyingpig - February 23, 2011 at 7:22 am #

        well, the way seasons are planned in the states is not what happens everywhere in the world.

        @anon, as i have been saying i think fullbring is a very basic ability that shinigami and hollows do for almost all of their abilities/ techniques. the charm could had been kido. after what we have seen do you think that fullbring is sth complicated or sophisticated? i think it’s just basic stuff, and it makes me wonder if ichigo has to fullbring zangetsu as he did back with the urahara method then wasn’t that a type of fullbring as well?

    • Timmy - February 23, 2011 at 6:55 am #

      in america, shows are divided into annual seasons because the writing team needs time to write. this is the same in japan, take code geass for example – 25 episode seasons in seperate years.

      it is different for anime based on manga, they dont have to wait for new content so they go for every week basis.

      remember, companies produce shows to make money not for our quality entertainment.

  7. Raizen - February 22, 2011 at 4:29 pm #

    i just found out what unohana bankai looks like :

    i know its jus fan art…but its great :P

    • Supersize me - February 22, 2011 at 4:53 pm #


    • flyingpig - February 22, 2011 at 6:37 pm #

      yeah, that could be scary…. i really want to see her fighting and her bankai

      • JBL41 - February 22, 2011 at 11:02 pm #

        She will says kubo, and also he said that he will show the true face of unohana, probably the current look isn’t the “true form”

      • flyingpig - February 23, 2011 at 7:24 am #

        makes sense… she is old but i don’t understand if kubo means he will pull a tsunade-after-pain type of revelation or she will transorm into some hideous monster trying to kill ichigo….

    • ( -__- ) - February 22, 2011 at 8:43 pm #

      You see her Bankai after Ichigo rescues Rukia.

      • Chelamacre-sama - February 23, 2011 at 12:59 am #

        No it wasn’t his bankai i’am sure of it… else they will be no more suspence to unohana, kyoraku and ukitake….
        When unohana take it’s serious face everybody seems scared… even kyoraku and ukitake… so she is powerfull….
        Why kyoraku can’t show his bankai before everybody and unohano cn do it?
        your comment is some bullsh…..

        unohana, kyoraku, ukitake and yamamoto’s bankai aren’t see, the true nature of kenpachi and yachiru’s power….. too much question that nobody can answer and predict ’til Kubo show us….

    • Timmy - February 23, 2011 at 6:57 am #

      just to clear up, we have NOT seen her bankai. the flying fish thing was shikai. kubo said we’ll see her bankai in the next arc. about the picture, it looks cool but i dont see what it has to do with her personality or shikai abilities since that’s what bankai are usually based on.

  8. Dayakaran - February 22, 2011 at 6:51 pm #

    I wish the background music was more rocking like entry of urahara and ichigo’s FGT… like the old fighs.. I so really wanter NUmber 1 as background music

    • Timmy - February 23, 2011 at 6:59 am #

      if you listen carefully, the music used when ichigo returns with longer hair and checks for his sisters is a variation of number one.

      • JBL41 - February 23, 2011 at 7:25 am #

        Its track 17 of the BLEACH OST of movie 4, i forgot the title but i’m sure its track 17

  9. Smily :) - February 22, 2011 at 8:20 pm #

    That’s some really messed up stuff :(

  10. ( -__- ) - February 22, 2011 at 8:48 pm #

    Has anyone thought about the “Spirit King”? It’s only a thought, but when Karin is at Urihara’s shop they call her “Lady Karin” wouldn’t it be kind of cool if Isshin was the spirit king? Also, what about what happens in Soul Society when Ichigo doesn’t have his powers? I think it would be cool if there are new captains. God i wish Gin hadn’t died, he was my favorite character.

    • sctr - February 22, 2011 at 9:04 pm #

      i think new captain can be only renji (coz bankai) and/or hishagi (coz i think hes better than other vicecaptains)

      • JBL41 - February 22, 2011 at 11:14 pm #

        I don’t know how much renji and hisagi have improve for the past 1 1/2 year since after the battle with aizen they trained like hitsugaya, but i like hisagi to achieve bankai, his shikai was sick as hell. The more qualified one that is known to date of being a captain for me is probably madarame ikkaku although he doesn’t want to be because of his loyalty to zaraki kenpachi.

        Since qualified captain class are hard to come by and gotei13 already lost 3, i’m expecting at least 1 new character appointed as captain,probably coming from an unknown place like royal palace/realm

      • Zangetsu Taicho - February 23, 2011 at 9:59 am #

        hmmm, any one of you wondered what ikkaku and yumichika did when everyone else was fighting harribel, barragan, and starrk (double r galore)? kira and hisagi fought with everyone save those two. hisagi killed a captain in his resurrecion while kira is healing people.

        out of all fukutaichos, i think hisagi is the one who’s most deserving candidate for a captain seat.

    • blank - February 22, 2011 at 10:50 pm #

      Actually following the anime it appears that Gin is still alive in a snowy part of Hueco Mundo.

    • asadsafsg - February 22, 2011 at 10:59 pm #

      I picture the spirit king being like the one in shaman king. Once you meet him you control the whole world living or dead and that ‘squad 13’ is meant to defend the spirit king until someone worthy comes along and obtains it to rule the world.

    • JBL41 - February 22, 2011 at 11:05 pm #

      Urahara isn’t the spirit king, he and aizen saw that “thing” saw its something else besides him and its probably still a big ? to what it really is

    • Mike - February 22, 2011 at 11:25 pm #

      Gin is alive its shown in the manga after the battle with aizen

      • JBL41 - February 23, 2011 at 4:31 am #

        That was just flashbacks and thoughts about gin by rangiku, he was not shown to be alive “per se”

  11. Anon - February 23, 2011 at 1:39 am #

    Im kinda lookin forward to the New Filler, its actually like a Huge Movie in-between the Main Story unlike Naruto which is pretty much Random Missions and shit…….so basically we get a Movie after every Arc, idk what everyone bitches about. Of course its not as good as the Real Story, but what Movies are? Do yourself a favor and Skip every week of Filler then watch it all at once at the end you’ll be much happier, and you’ll still have Manga for your Fix.imo.

    • JBL41 - February 23, 2011 at 4:35 am #

      Same thought on the separate fillers like zanpkatou arc, i view them as some sort of a movie as a whole:) But i probably think that this coming fillers are connected to the story line unlike the zanpaktou and amagai arc(which is in an alternate time line more or less)because of the fact that the last part was slightly change as ichigo still having some shinigami powers left and its only 10 days after he collapse and he is still in SS as compared to the manga which is a month and he is in his house

      I just want some zaraki action and sadistic laughs while fighting that is why i’m pump up for a new fillers hehe

      • dudedude123 - February 23, 2011 at 6:46 am #

        i actually enjoyed the zanpakuto arc. It was nice to have a random arc about the swords and have a little explanation about the spirits.

  12. Tyler - February 23, 2011 at 2:56 am #

    Actually when urahara said you saw, it could have meant the data in the central 46 library or something. Urahara had no idea how much intel he gathered. And theres obviously something in the books then urahara saw it and it was kind of just like a “oh you saw too” kind of thing

    • JBL41 - February 23, 2011 at 4:38 am #

      Its possible its that way and would make a lot of sense since i think aizen has never been in the royal realm were the spirit king resides, he probably gathered data and connect it together to envision what the spirit king really is

    • flyingpig - February 23, 2011 at 7:36 am #

      considering urahara’s connection to the shihoin family, the latter being described/ thought to have been entrusted objects by the heaven etc, i would say that urahara was describing the sk as an ‘it’. i know people are getting all pumped up for the royal dimension being full of uber awesome creatures but i we should wait because for the time being not much is known and all that we know contradicts itself.

      in the tbtp arc when aizen finds out that hikifune joined the royal guard he seemed surprised, but i doubt that he didn’t know about them since even rukia had some info, if you remeber back when the menos grande appeared she said that the royal guards have the responsibility to face mg. and i think this is basic info all shinigami know, not sth she would find out through her family. therefore i doubt aizen would know nothing about these guys, yet he looked surprised. hitsugaya and matsumoto were speaking about the sk as if it was a national treasure, like they were worshipping it because it was a symbol of their shinigamihood rather a political figure. and this sk was around for long enough so that multiple captain commanders would have to know the secret location of the ouken. not to mention that the shinigami who join the rg are never seen again. i don’t know but you don’t have to be aizen to think that there is sth fishy about it

      • JBL41 - February 23, 2011 at 8:03 am #

        I’m sure that rukia didn’t say the royal guards have the responsibility to face the menos grande otherwise we would have seen them already. She meant it for the elite forces probably the omitskidou of the 2nd squad

        The tranlations slightly differs in the anime though what she meant are the same thing and i’m 100% sure its not the royal guards because most royal guards are compose of former captains a lowly menos grande is just like an insect to them

      • JBL41 - February 23, 2011 at 8:16 am #

        The thing about aizen not knowing and was surprised when kyoraku mentioned the royal guard is probably because shinji didn’t mention it to him as only a few of the ranking officers most probably the captain and the vice captain are knowledgeable of the zero squad. The fact that it was only shown that aizen was the only one surprise at that revelation(lisa and hiyori wasn’t shown to be shocked)means that what he said about shinji is true that he rarely opens up to him as his captain and doesn’t trust aizen completely. Hitsugaya knew this because he is a captain and has a high status in gotei13 and matsumoto surely got this information true her captain.

        As to whether aizen during that time when he heard about the royal guards knew about the spirit king’s existence<— this i'm not sure.. he might be aware of the spirit kings existence and wasn't aware of the fact that some of the former captains are "Retired/promoted" into becoming part of the zero squad which guards it and this was the first time he heard about zero squad/royal guard that is why he was very curious and adamant about asking it(it even made shinji try to stop him from asking more)and was shocked after kyoraku told him

      • flyingpig - February 23, 2011 at 9:04 am #

        i don’t know if the menos are really that pathetic, the reason they are classified that low is imo that they are so stupid, but look the reactions of the gotei in the fkt battle, not very happy to have them around.

        then the visored went ahead and took them out, but then they are supposed to be stronger than captain level. furthermore, without any of the hollows taking over killing a menos grande would mean that you allow several souls to enter ss, whereas if one of the hollows has dominated over the rest then you get a more evolved form where all the power is under the control of one personality. so, there could be reasons behind having this ‘elite’ forces dragged in.

        i am still not sure why he had that reaction and i think shinji simply interrupted him because he interrupted a captain. it became obvious that he didn’t trust aizen, but he also knew nothing about the guy, he just didn’t trust him. besides, if the promotion was sth so ordinary why keep it a secret especially if he would take the guy along in the ceremony where the captains could mention about hikifune.

        i,too, want to know more about the royal guards but the way kubo has been preparing the ground it’s all full of contradictions. i could make a case presenting royal guards as super-captains or as food for the sk with what we have.

    Am i the only one who thinks tatsuki is a lesbian, i mean when the new arc started she was shown older but some school girls blushed….what is it with japanese manga and lesbian characters?

    • Anon - February 23, 2011 at 3:27 am #

      i think ur just a (kid) pervert, its pretty clear its the whole looking up to your upperclass-man (who is what? oh yeah some kind of kick ass chick fighter) thing goin on. Maybe when u get older (idk you so this might be rude, but if u do anything worth a shit with your time on this planet) someone will show admiration for you……why does everything have to be Lesbians and Gay and Dicks or whatever other useless childish shit you all continue to throw into your comments.imo.

      Ohh Shit, i see why now.

      Its Fuckin NATE!!!

    • Timmy - February 23, 2011 at 7:01 am #

      actually, that would make the blushing girls lesbians not tatsuki.

    Hopefully this won’t turn into a Orihime search and rescue.

    • JBL41 - February 23, 2011 at 7:23 am #

      Haha i second that motion:), it’ll be ridiculous to do that thing all over again, i’m sure as hell that someone would rescue inoue from the bad haircut i don’t know what his name guy probably ishida’s dad since he was adamant at accompanying inoue home last time

      • SAM KNIGHT - February 23, 2011 at 7:33 am #

        I’m sure someone will save her seeing as she hasn’t defeated anything since numb chandelier.

      • flyingpig - February 23, 2011 at 11:01 am #

        yeah, chapter seems to disagree with you guys….

  18. monkeychan - February 23, 2011 at 5:43 am #

    I think the episodes 311 onward are goin to be fillers. Ichigo woke up after 10 days in anime while he woke after 1 month in manga. In manga when he woke up he was in his home and not in rukia’s house.
    any thoughts ??

    • SAM KNIGHT - February 23, 2011 at 6:18 am #

      Yeah Urahara said that he will lose his powers within a month ichigo passed out for ten days so about twenty days remain until he completely loses his powers.I think that they will make fillers based on those remaining days then at the end they show him losing his powers.And then they are possibly going to make a longer filler with an actual plot.Well that’s my guess anyway.

    • dudedude123 - February 23, 2011 at 6:43 am #

      that is definitely a setup for the next filler arc. According to the anime version, there are two stages to him loosing his powers. First, he blacks out for a little amount of time as he body begins to deal with his powers struggling to balance. Then, he’s supposed to black out one last time for a while, and afterwards he will completely lose his powers… according to Urahara.
      So his powers will probably work on and off for the next filler arc, but by the end of the arc he’ll probably have one last black out and then wake up like he does in the manga… after a one month coma and his powers completely gone.

      • SAM KNIGHT - February 23, 2011 at 7:01 am #

        I think that that this will be a small filler arc that will focus on the time ichigo has remaining until he comepletely loses his powers.Then I believe that bigger filler arc comes after.Hopefully they don’t make an arc based on flashbacks like that one Naruto filler cause that was so lame.

      • JBL41 - February 23, 2011 at 7:05 am #

        Agreed with you and sam knight, same thought i suggested above with the ichigo enabling to fight for 20 days or so till he finally collapses again and his powers completely gone after saying goodbye to rukia just like in the manga

      • JBL41 - February 23, 2011 at 7:15 am #

        Yeah those flashbacks of the younger days are boring, i’d prefer the capturing the bijou fillers arc was more entertaining for me.

        This time on bleach i sure hope they do some interesting filler arc much like the muramasa zanpaktou arc(excluding the sword fiend ones)or an even better filler that surpasses it with animations like how great they made the current episodes its fine with me.

        Bottom line is again as long as zaraki makes his electrifying entrances(which is probably one of the best if not the best entrances i’ve seen in anime) and fights to his content its better than being fine hehe

      • SAM KNIGHT - February 23, 2011 at 7:18 am #

        Yeah dude I’m actually kind of excited about the new major filler the studio did an amazing job on the zanpakuto arc.Bleach does a good job on fillers compared to other anime.

      • flyingpig - February 23, 2011 at 9:16 am #

        personally, the spoiler at the end of the episode left me kinda meeeh…. i think i will sit back on this one and if people seem to react good to these fillers i ‘ll give it a shot.

        the muramasa filler was good and it had an interesting plot and plot twist; not to mention technically muramasa is the most successful antagonist in the series so far. he did destroy seireitei, he did get ichigo to do as he wanted, and he did free his master which was his true goal. but the hannibal wannabe was an idiot… oh, and then there was the bounto leader but i hated that filler, too boring, too melodramatic

      • J.J. - February 23, 2011 at 9:31 am #

        I believe the next episode 311 is a one shot filler for kon remember the karakuraizer thing and that the rumors say that 1 shot fillers will go on up to 316 then 317 will start with the 26 episode filler of the invasion army arc. I’m not really sure until it comes out though

      • SAM KNIGHT - February 23, 2011 at 8:38 pm #

        The Bount arc sucked because it had bad writing but it still had some good characters in it and that’s what Bleach is good at character development.

  19. Timmy - February 23, 2011 at 7:15 am #

    in the anime, when orihime was crying after seeing ichigo, i felt like punching her fucking face in. i cannot believe how much ive come to hate that useless dumb bitch over the course of the series.

    • JBL41 - February 23, 2011 at 7:20 am #

      Haha “kurosaki kun”:), on to the next chapter i’m pretty sure your most hated “useless dumb bitch” who has no will power behind her won’t be killed by some dude with a weird haircut and she is probably being shadowed by ishida’s father ryuken. I sure hope this time i get to see at least more a battle that involves ryuken, i wanna see how far his skills are above ishida considering he is the last “true quincy” which receive the medallion coming form ishida’s grand dad

    • SAM KNIGHT - February 23, 2011 at 7:24 am #

      Dude believe me I feel the same way.It’s just her Japanese voice actor she has a high pitched voice that makes her annoying.But orihime needs some serious character development.

      • flyingpig - February 23, 2011 at 7:43 am #

        naah, kubo tried to pull a hinata but didn’t turn out too good(ok, i think hinata is cool, so what?). it’s not just the actor, the character is just too childish and to begin with someone who had orihime’s life (being abused, seeing her brother dead, having to live on her own) technically should had been more mature and having difficulties trusting people etc. orihime fits the profile of spoiled girl who never had to fend for herself, pity that she ended up overshadowing rukia.

      • SAM KNIGHT - February 23, 2011 at 7:49 am #

        I like hinata too she proved herself when she used that twin lion fist against pain that was pretty sick anyways back to Bleach.Orihime has no fighting spirit and always has to be rescued by someone totally useless besides her healing powers.

      • flyingpig - February 23, 2011 at 9:08 am #

        yeah, but we have the 4th squad with captain-i-can-glue-people-back to fill her place. kubo is keeping her around because a) he likes her too much and b) he is going to use her powers for a final troll in the very end, i am almost certain about that

      • J.J. - February 23, 2011 at 9:35 am #

        Kubo also gave her a belief and a mentality that healing and saving people comes first before anything and fighting is the last resort sort of philosophy and is a complete opposite of the 11th squad which follows their captains belief of fighting is better than sex(:))

    Isshin Kurosaki = Human/Shinigami

    Masaki Kurosaki = Human/Fullbringer

    I think Urahara thought of a theory of some sort to give Ichigo hollow powers as extra. But that gives Ichigo a risk, if he didn’t took out his zanpaktou out of the box when his inner world collapses, he would’ve become a hollow instead.
    Thanks to Ishida Uryuu he knew what to do in that kind of situation.

    I personally think that humans are the closest one’s to able to controle there inner hollows. But that’s also a theory of mine so, oh well time will tell right?

    Anyways, If Ichigo can use his fullbring like Sado can I think he’ll get his shinigami powers back faster, including his hollow powers. But that’s just my second theory…

    • ( -__- ) - February 23, 2011 at 1:16 pm #

      Correction: Isshin is all shinigami, Ichigo is the first known child (I’m wondering about Karin and Yuzu though) of a shinigami and a human, at least that’s what is repeated over and over in the manga.

  21. Raizen - February 23, 2011 at 8:21 am #

    damn the fillers havent even started i want to see some real action again…i miss the times when was about SS and captains not only about ichigo(dont get me wrong but i think the fullbring part is pretty shitty.) and also id like to se captains start again fighting and i predict we will see flashbacks of the previous fights in HC. imagine see zaraki or byakuya fight and remembering parts of the figgt with yammy…aaaaa??? :D:D

    and one thing more…when i saw the last episode 310, the part when yammy was lying on the ground, there are 2 holes in the roof….by whom were they made ???? ichigo or ulq. made one but it was more rounder

    • SAM KNIGHT - February 23, 2011 at 8:32 am #

      A lot of damage was done to the roof when Hollow Ichigo and Ulquiorra duked it out.And it was possibly damaged even more when Byakuya Zaraki and Yammy were fighting.

    • J.J. - February 23, 2011 at 9:39 am #

      I’m guessing that it was yammy getting thrown up by either byakuya or most possibly zaraki’s attack and hit the dome at some point, still i’m not sure about that it could only be from ichigo and ulquiorra’s fight because the dome is so huge that even yammy size which is probably several hundreds of feet high still looks small inside the dome so its hard for him to get thrown off unless it was a very powerful attack

  22. Inner Hollow - February 23, 2011 at 9:12 am #

    Your wrongm, when Ulq and Ichi went op Ulq made the first hole.
    The sec hole was caused by Ichigo Resurrection, you know…
    The huge cero he shot at Ulq when he lied on the ground and the cero did even damage on the ground where sado, renji, rukia and yammy was at. please people read your manga/anime again…

    • J.J. - February 23, 2011 at 9:45 am #

      Lol when they went up the dome and ichigo chased him before the battled even heated up ulquiorra made a very small hole which isn’t even visible by the size of las noches, the entire dome is hundreds of kilometers apart and would need 3 days of walk to go from one place to other and its not even the full size. Ichigo’s hollow form made the first hole with his cero which is really huge and visible where it penetrated down to the inside, the second holes are probably either still the work of ulquiorra segunda etapa form vs ichigo super hollow form or the fight between yammy vs byakuya/zaraki kenpachi

    • randomness - February 23, 2011 at 9:50 am #

      that second cero blast in the roof was much to round to be one of the holes
