Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 89: Journey Through The Cave of Terrors

For the first time since his battle with Mayuri in the Seiretei, Ishida and Nemu stand face to face.

Given how kind he was to her previously, this is kind of sudden and unexpected… InContinue reading “Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 89: Journey Through The Cave of Terrors”

Ririn and Kon, who managed to flee Ichigo’s battle with Koga, make it back to Urahara’s shop in a huff, to find that all is well, and Ichigo is already there and recovering, along with the others who were injured in battle.

Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 87: The Thrill of Powers Combined, The Agony of Powers Lost

Sawatari and his Doll, Baura, look like they’ve defintively won this encounter, and he has no intention of letting his opponents escape either, swimming around them with the menacing movements of a lurking shark. As he sinks below them to attack, Rangiku uses the split-second opportunity to flash-step herself, Chad and Noba away, in anContinue reading “Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 87: The Thrill of Powers Combined, The Agony of Powers Lost”

Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 86: Clash of the Spatial Manipulators

For those who haven’t noticed, a basic formula has developed over the past couple of episodes. Firstly, one of the groups of protagonists is out patrolling for Bounts; then, they inevitably find what they’re looking for, when a Bount arrives to confront them, usually completely overpowering them, and exposing their lack of preparation; and finally,Continue reading “Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 86: Clash of the Spatial Manipulators”

Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 85: Reviving Rukia – Orihime’s Test of True Friendship

Back at the Bounts’ lair, Ichinose and Kariya are having a conversation about the sudden personality change and currently unknown whereabouts of Mabashi. Ichinose is concerned over his fate and also apologetic to Kariya for allowing him to sneak out unchecked. Kariya, however, does not share this concern, as he considers the sudden allure ofContinue reading “Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 85: Reviving Rukia – Orihime’s Test of True Friendship”

Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 84: New Opponents Arrive! Izuru and Mabashi

This episode, we get two ongoing battles against the Bounts, and they both go in some decidedly unexpected directions… After Renji’s run-in with the Bitto, he has the good luck to get picked up by Urahara and Tessai, and is now recovering at his shop. At Urahara’s request, Tessai brings Hanataro there as well (againstContinue reading “Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 84: New Opponents Arrive! Izuru and Mabashi”

Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 83: Koga’s Regret

Rukia, Kurodo and Orihime have their work cut out for them against the female Bount that has ambushed them. Kurodo, assuming the form of Renji, tries to help out as best he can, as he can also summon Renji’s fighting style and Shinigami strength along with his appearance. Orihime joins in with a rare offensiveContinue reading “Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 83: Koga’s Regret”

Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 82: Confrontation with Dalk

The Bount invasion of Karakura Town continues unabated. They are very well aware of the Shinigami presence, and are keeping tabs on their enemies, Ichigo and his team in particular.

Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 81: The Bitto Invasion

The newly hatched Bount Dolls have begun wreaking havoc on Karakura Town. In the episode’s first scene, a random citizen is attacked by a swarm of them. They fatten like oversized mosquitoes as they suck out all of his life energy, then leave him to evaporate into dust. The Stealth Force unit of the ShinigamiContinue reading “Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 81: The Bitto Invasion”

Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 80: The Bount Trappers

After a pretty heavy last episode involving the death of a major character (well, for this arc, anyway), Episode 80 is a much lighter affair, not doing much in the way of plot advancement, and instead incorporating humour that borders on the absurd. After what Ichigo and his friends just witnessed at Kariya’s mansion, thereContinue reading “Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 80: The Bount Trappers”
