Bleach – 345

「襲われた雨竜、仲間達に迫る脅威!」 (Osowareta Uryuu, Nakama-tachi ni Semaru Kyoui!)
“Uryuu is Attacked, A Threat Draws Near the Friends!”

This episode shifted things into high gear with none of the usual Bleach drag, and I hope non-manga readers are finding the plot and mystery interesting.

Bleach – 344

「学校間抗争!?一護と雨竜、共闘!」 (Gakkou kan kousou!? Ichigo to Uryuu, kyoutou!)
“A Dispute in School?! Ichigo and Uryuu, Fight Together!”

「高校3年生!装い新たに新章開始!」 (Koukou 3 nensei! Yosoi arata ni shinshou kaishi!)
“3rd Year High School Student! Dressed Up, and a New Chapter Begins!”

It feels like a fresh start to the series again with a return to manga material, and is even more so with the upbeat new opening song by the girl-band SCANDAL.

Bleach – 342

「ありがとう 」 (Arigatou)
“Thank You”

Most of this episode was actually added material, but that’s not bad at all since it links everything from the previous arc and fleshes out some of the events.

Bleach – 340, 341

「侵軍篇、最終決着!」 (Shingun hen, saishuu kecchaku!)
“Invading Army Arc, Final Conclusion!”

I felt that these two episodes were of fairly poor quality overall, which is surprising since they are the final episodes of this arc.

Bleach – 337, 338, 339

「 改造魂魄の開発者」 (Kaizou konpaku no kaihatsusha)
“The Developer of the Modified Souls”

Urahara’s character is one of my favorites in Bleach, and I’m quite happy to see him more (even if it’s in fillers).

「失われる霊圧! 一護、魂の死闘! 」 (Ushinawareru reiatsu! Ichigo, tamashii no shitou! )
“The Depleting Reiatsu! Ichigo, Death Struggle of the Soul”

These two episodes actually weren’t too bad; the drama is there, the fights are intense, the plot is heating up, and overall quality is decent.

Bleach – 328

「影狼佐を倒せ!死神、総力戦! 」 (Kageroza o taose! Shinigami, souryokusen! )
“Defeat Kageroza! Shinigami, All-Out War!”
