Bleach – episode 61

Exposition is the name of the game, the villain explains most, and all fights get cancelled for the sake of one story!

Last episode where I give the spoiler warning for this turn of events

Isane, the vice captain of fourth squadron, uses one of her demon magic abilities to inform everyone of the situation; it’s a much more efficient method than using hell butterflies. This essentially means that Yama-ji’s fight is off, so Aizen can tell us all why he did what he has done.

Aizen’s story is a fairly good one, yet it calls into question the morality of Urahara. There is so much manipulation in the situation that I really don’t know how to feel. Urahara has always been one of those “charismatic bastard” characters, but I believe that here his bastardry has gone too far. I’ll have to see how it turns out, but I think that someone needs to hurt him. On the other hand, it was great to see that Aizen betrayed Kira, one of those on the inside of his conspiracy.

To other things in the episode! There was the traditional weakness of Bleach: the in-fighting among characters who realistically should be having their heads smashed in by their real enemies. This gets pretty old, pretty fast. It only makes sense if you consider that the enemies think they’re the strongest beings ever, and that they believe they can take their time despatching their enemies.

The director has admitted that Yama-ji is never going to fight his two most trusted captains, but this was handled in the most ridiculous way imaginable. Yama-ji has been on fire for seven episodes without doing anything to move! Oh, what a great and terrible world.

We’ll have to wait and see if anyone can hope to defeat the inexplicably strong Captain Aizen. Can Ichigo unleash the secret power that rendered Urahara’s actions irrelevant? Will the Kon part of the episode ever make sense? Why Postafu? Again, we’ll have to wait and see.
