Read the two newest chapters of Bleach!

SPOILERS

In the first of the two, the captains continue to get their butts handed to them by the Stern Ritter, with Toshiro's near death experience being the most focused upon.

In the second of the two, it's Uehara to the rescue, as he's found a way to keep the Quincies from stealing Bankai, and injure the ones that already have. Apparently they never tried stealing any of the Arrancars' Resereccions, despite the fact that they ransacked Hueco Mundo before attacking Soul Society. This means one of three things. Either their disgust of Hollows means the Quincies wouldn't consider using their powers*, Resereccions can't be stolen**, or doing so would be a hinderance to the Quincies***.

  • This isn't the case, as the Quincies forced strong Arrancars to fight for them, meaning they're not above using Hollows for their own gain.

** - Not the case either, as Resereccion works much like Bankai at a technical level, so there's no reason they wouldn't be able to steal them.

***- Bingo. Unlike Soul Reapers, which are able to "Hollowfy" their abilities, and vice-versa (since they & Hollows are like two sides of the same coin), Quincies are unable to do so. They aren't compatible with Hollow abilities, and they would in effect be poisoned if they tried.

In the end, Uehara sent a pill to all the Captains (& other Bankai users) via a Kido, that will "Hollowfy" their Bankai (at least for a limited time).

Looks like the captains will finally be able to fight the Stern Ritter at an even level, instead of trying to resist them with Shikai.

Last year, Suede (who out of the 5 trillion internet video reviewers, is easily one of the most underappreciated) did a review on...this:

I almost forgot that I had decided after watching the review that it would be fun to watch around Halloween next year.

Watching ep 2 of Kill la Kill...oh lord the insane humor at an insane pace in the scene with Mako's family was just so perfect. It's timing was so fast and the humor so random that I couldn't help but crack up.

@Caniswolfred
Watching it yet?

I'll give them an A for effort. That's certainly the most fun I've had watching a Pokemon Anime op.

I watched Kill la Kill. (I could have sworn I said that here already, lol.) But I need to watch episode 2.
But how's Diamond no Ace? I might give it a try, heck I've given a chance to most of the tiles this season.

Say what now?

I don't have time to go through almost 400 pages of posts, but has anyone else here seen Clannad (and After Story) and Angel Beats? I strongly recommend them if you haven't. Oreimo is a good (if not awkward) anime as well.

I've seen plenty of others, but I figured I'd take a quick poll first.

@Buob I can tell from your DP that you're a Clannad fan :D I haven't seen it in a while, but it sure is quality drama. I'm not too sure on Oreimo, mostly because of the awkward humour though. And welcome to the thread!

I might jump into Kill la Kill to see what it's like. Also, I'm heading towards the end of Silver Spoon and it's kept a great mix of humour and drama - I highly recommend it to anyone who skipped it last season!

always thought I'd change to Gyarados after I turned 20 but hey, this is more fitting I guess. (also somebody registered under the original Magikarp name and I can't get back to it anymore orz)

That was actually really nice! Wonder if the English one will be any good.

...hmm...

The first episode was weeeeird.

And not necessarily in the ways you expect from Japan. It was weird because it was almost kinda a normal show? Maybe. It's like the looked at several genres and tried to turn them into a bizarre supernatural story that would completely still fit a shonen sort of feel. I think.

...it was weird. Like it was a murder mystery shonen adult supernatural dramatic...comedy?

So, today was an odd anime-viewing day for me;

  • Sunday Without God: I finished this series and it's stupid. It obsesses way too much on surprising the viewer that it forgets to add any characterization or character development whatsoever. Not to mention that the first three episodes are horrifically baffling, with each of them trying to say that a mass murderer is also someone who's making a better world.
  • Log Horizon: Also known as Totally-Not-Sword-Art-Online, I liked the debut episode of this series. I'm not liking it to the degree that I loved Sword Art Online during its honeymoon period (the first 3 episodes), but from what I've read and heard the show seems to be hitting its mark of a more lighthearted version of the plot SAO tried to be. Of course, I've only seen one episode, but I'm thankfully neither hooked nor deterred by this show to feel any real loss if the plot gets turned around. Right now, it's a fun distraction.
