Before the opening theme, we get a brief explanation of just what a Zanpakuto is. For those of you who already knew all that crap, that first 45 or so seconds was a waste of time. And then the opening happens.
Just so I can get this off my chest, I really hate the current opening, Shoujo S. The first time I heard it, it was just annoying, but after a few months of it, I just want to utterly destroy whatever is playing it at the moment. Other random complaint: starting this episode, the video of the opening lags behind the audio and is suddenly in widescreen. WHY CHANGE THAT NOW?!?!
Okay, now that that's out of the way, back to the actual episode. We see a bunch of people sitting around somewhere and HOLY SWEET MOTHER OF GOD!
|DAT ASS... or better yet, DAT BOD!|
|WHAT DA FUUU-?!|
We then cut to Renji and Byakuya fighting in the Seireitei surrounded by millions of nameless Soul Reapers... 'cause that's a great idea! Yeah, spar using your extremely long-range weapons near an uncountable amount of innocent bystanders who totally won't get caught in the middle of it. God, sometimes the logic in anime makes me want to cut myself...
Anyway, Fingernaildude shows up for a split second and Byakuya's sword cuts him, so he's all "Screw you guys, I'm going home." We then see Toshiro, aka Captain Bankaiwhore, doing weird trippy shit with his Zanpakuto, Hyorinmaru, before turning into a chibi for no reason.
|Seriously, what the fuck?!|
|"I haven't done that in 90 years!"|
|"This is not a good look for me!"|
Unfortunately, FancyUlqui pretty much goes "I can't let you do that StarFox." and Doggyman's Bankai attacks it's owner! And then it turns into a dude who's face is on fire for some reason.
|I think that's an extreme way to teach him to play dead, ya know?|
Then, what one can only guess are the Zanpakuto spirits appear and go over to FancyUlqui. And... hold on...
Okay, so FancyUlqui reveals that his name is Muramasa (though he'll always be FancyUlqui to me) and that 'The reign of the Soul Reapers is over' or some shit like that.
Well, so far, this is turning out... pretty good. I want to see how each SR defeats their Zanpakuto soon, I can't wait till next week! Oh well, I don't watch fansubs or fandubs, so I'll have to. HBM, signing off!
