Bleach (Dub) Episode 205
Forty-five pieces of theme music are used for the episodes: Fifteen opening themes and thirty closing themes. Several CDs that contain the theme music and other tracks have been released by Studio Pierrot. As of January 23, 2013, all 366 episodes have been released by Aniplex in Japan in 88 DVD compilations. 32 DVD compilations of the English adaptation of the series have been released by Viz Media, and twenty six season boxsets have been released that contain all the seasons of the anime.
Of course, as is the case with any serialized shonen anime, Bleach is filled to the brim with filler episodes that were meant to give Kubo time as he penned more canon chapters of the manga. Fans who want to watch Bleach and stay informed about its filler should take the following information into mind while getting into this legendary shonen anime.
It's a simple yet interesting arc that fleshes out the world of Bleach even more. The fact that this filler arc only last three episodes would also be a source of joy for fans who don't want to invest themselves in a long-winded narrative that is ultimately forgotten in the grand scheme of things.
The Stolen Hogyoku arc is a bit of a mixed bag. The arc features many one-off episodes while also exploring the side of the Arrancar and how a lot of them aren't really happy with Aizen becoming their leader. It has some interesting moments, but poor pacing and the ham-fisted nature of its inclusion severely takes it down a notch.
Shusuke Amagai was a character that could've been a memorable figure in his own right. In fact, the first few episodes of this filler arc definitely show a ton of promise...but the pacing falls off severely after a while and makes it really hard to get through the rest of the story.
That being said, the final few fights in the series are pretty great and worth a watch. It's just a shame that the new characters introduced in this filler arc are simply too boring to warrant the extended screen time they get. To make matters worse, characters from this arc make an appearance in later filler episodes as well, and those are also pretty unwatchable at times!
Samurai Champloo is, quite possibly, the closest I've seen an anime come to being Brian Hanson's Perfect Animated Series. The show is mostly episodic, but an overall plot arc continues in various subtle ways throughout each episode. The tone alternates from appropriately light to appropriately gritty, and the characters, animation, directing, writing, are all stellar. This episode serves as a perfect highlight to all of the above, as a seemingly silly story on the surface, involving Fuu's encounter with a smitten wanna-be samurai with his own hilariously anachronistic beat-box crew, belies a subplot involving a man with a bitter grudge against Fuu's bespectacled companion, the taciturn Jin.
That episode title sounds like a campy, foreign-language exploitation film of the sort you'd find in a bin of DVDs at the second-hand store. Anyway, Gennosuke sulks as the war between the Iga and Kouga grows, and Oboro discovers the horrible secret.
Those old-timers like myself may remember that this is one of two Cowboy Bebop episodes that was held back for nearly a year during its original US broadcast on Adult Swim, due to the lingering 9/11 sensitivity and the opening scene of this episode involving an armed gang of Islamic terrorists attempting to hijack a plane. Still, we made off better than Canada, which is only just now getting the show itself.
T-minus two episodes until FMA's conclusion reaches Canadian airwaves! Fie on those who say the FMA anime's conclusion is unrewarding - it ties most of the loose ends up, with said remaining loose ends being the focus of the wonderful feature film. As the homonculus' devious plan reaches is zenith, Edward Elric is assisted by the "Other Brothers Elric" in locating the so-called "leader" of the homonculi.
I suppose the benefit of jumbling the episode order of a simple kids' show certainly beats jumbling the episodes of something a bit more cerebral, but still, even shows like MAR have their hardcore fans, and its usually best not to try and provoke them. You never know when and where The Revolution will come from; perhaps agitated MAR fans? In this week's episode, Ginta's team and his adversaries each have one win and one loss on their score, which means the next match is the one that counts! Or so I've been told! 041b061a72
