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

Rukia, Kurodo and Orihime have their work cut out for them against the female Bount that has ambushed them.

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.

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”

Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 79: Yoshino’s Last Stand

It’s the following day at the Urahara residence, and it’s shaping up to be a pretty typical morning, or at least as typical as it can get with this unusual cast of characters. Ichigo seems to have put his humiliating defeat behind him, after sparring with Renji the entire night before; they’re now both wipedContinue reading “Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 79: Yoshino’s Last Stand”

Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 78: A Tribe Without A Future

Things have slowed down a bit since the last episode, and now everyone is safely at Urahara’s.

Meanwhile, the rest of the teamContinue reading “Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 78: A Tribe Without A Future”

Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 77: The Charming Wiles of Kariya

Kurodo and Noba are both left worse for the wear, after their unfortunate run-in with the powerful Shinigami, Ichinose, and both appear to be unconscious. Ririn is naturally distraught at the possible fate of her friends… that is, until she realises they’re just faking for attention…. On to more serious plot developments, like the battleContinue reading “Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 77: The Charming Wiles of Kariya”

Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 76: An Unexpected Traitor, An Unusual Ally
