Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 105: Rantao and Kariya – The Creator Meets The Destroyer

Much respect to Toshiro Hitsugaya… it’s easy to see why he’s so respected by his peers, having just disposed of the last of Kariya’s underlings, and now he’s naturally welcomed back with reverence by his men. Also having respect for even his deadliest enemies, he orders for Koga’s remains (if there are any at all)Continue reading “Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 105: Rantao and Kariya – The Creator Meets The Destroyer”

Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 104: The Shattered Ambitions of Go Koga

So has the Bount Go Koga reformed in some way since his disagreement and parting ways with Kariya? Maybe so. As Hitsugaya hurriedly arrives on the scene of his last sighting, he finds all of the shinigami there passed out on the ground, but thankfully there are no fatalities, and he thinks he recognises thisContinue reading “Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 104: The Shattered Ambitions of Go Koga”

Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 103: The Uncontrollable Blade

“What’s wrong with the strong killing the weak?” Yoshi Episode 103 opens mid-battle, with Yoshi just barely blocking the potentially devastating shot Ishida fired at her at the very end of the last episode. This particular battle has been going on for a while, and having just assumed him dead, Ishida clearly isn’t the kindContinue reading “Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 103: The Uncontrollable Blade”

Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 102: The Jokai Crest – The Ultimate Power?

As promised, Kariya has made his way to the Department of Research and Development in search of the mysterious object that will bring about the fall of the Seireitei. On approaching the entrance, he comes across some nervous looking guards, who confront him. Within the compound, Nemu is informed of the intruder at the entrance,Continue reading “Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 102: The Jokai Crest – The Ultimate Power?”

Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 101: Mayuri vs. Sawatari

The fight is on between Mayuri and Sawatari. Sawatari is already sitting upon his enormous Doll, Baura, whose immensity would terrify anyone else, but only draws amused chuckles from Mayuri, who makes it a point to remind Sawatari that Bounts like himself only have powers due to ancient Soul Society technology. Then, in what isContinue reading “Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 101: Mayuri vs. Sawatari”

Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 100: Mabashi’s Mind Control Scourge

Wow, 100 episodes already? That was fast. In any case, I’d like to thank anyone and everyone so far who chose to follow along with my 2020 rewatch, and accompanying recap, day by day. With that out of the way, we’re still not even a third into this series, so without further ado, let’s getContinue reading “Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 100: Mabashi’s Mind Control Scourge”

Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 99: The Seireitei Breached – The Invasion Begins

The Seireitei has been successfully breached, with Kariya’s mob able to pry one of the gates open. Their task has just begun, though, as squads of shinigami immediately block their entry. This is where Kariya steps in, blowing all of them away with one swipe of his hand. Spirits are high… until Kariya states thatContinue reading “Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 99: The Seireitei Breached – The Invasion Begins”

Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 98: Kenpachi’s Arrival, Ichinose’s Vendetta

‘Relying on people and loyalty are two different things.’ Kenpachi Zaraki Okay, so spoiler alert (kinda)… Ichinose gets schooled by Kenpachi in this episode… but before getting to that, hey, we have both a new opening and a new ending credits sequence, probably having to do with the fact that the momentous 100th episode drawsContinue reading “Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 98: Kenpachi’s Arrival, Ichinose’s Vendetta”

Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 96: Rantao Resurfaces

The three-way fight is in full swing. Kariya, Byakuya and Ichigo are hurling their most powerful attacks at each other, Ichigo being the only one who thinks he has an ally in this fight, Byakuya having no regard for whether Ichigo is in the way or not. The awesome combination of all three simultaneous attacksContinue reading “Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 96: Rantao Resurfaces”

Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 95: Three-Way Battle! Ichigo Crashes The Party

This episode features one of the most stoic standoffs so far in the series, between two characters that are seemingly unperturbed by anything, and therefore probably a good match as opponents. After uncharacteristically showing a bit of his reckless side in the last episode, Kariya is now back to his regular, unflappable self, and ByakuyaContinue reading “Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 95: Three-Way Battle! Ichigo Crashes The Party”
