Anime ep 234 "Renji Surprised! The Two Zabimarus."  
available subbed for viewing here


Shirosaki! *swoon*

Renji: "Sorry, I've never been involved with any hairy women." ROTFLMAO.

That is all. Talk amongst yourselves.

lol, Alice, you posted just after me but I got your words:

There is probably a better link out there, but this is what I have available to me at the moment.

This filler is becoming progressively more interesting. Muramasa continues his chat with Ichigo. He reveals that he has killed his wielder/shinigami and considers himself to be free. The discussion seems to only continue long enough for Muramasa to decide he would rather talk to Shirozaki.

In the meantime . . .

Ukitake and Kyouraku are having a little chat about their being screwed -- they, of course, remain completely cool and composed. Uohana comes into the conversation and shares that Mayuri has determined the zanpaktou are now completely separate from their shinigami. She also reveals that she allowed Mayuri to examine her, which puts off both Ukitake and Kyouraku (exactly what is it that everyone expects Mayuri to have been able to do to Captain Unohaha??? o.o)

Different shinigami are searching for their respective zanpaktou. Shuhei and Renji are lucky enough to encounter them. Shuhei's Kazeshini comes in as a whirlwind, killing the two shinigami Shuhei was taking to at the moment. (How apropos for a zanpaktou named "Death Wind"). Shuehi seems to recognize him from the wounds he inflicted on two other shinigami. They fight, of course, Kazeshini strongly implying that his instinct is to reap lives and that Shuhei is no longer able to keep that in check.

Hahaha, I think I posted seconds after you.

I agree. Great filler. Renji was hilarious. Muramasa is going to get himself into a lot of trouble if he keeps taking Ichigo (and Shiro) for a push over.

I didn't realize how badly I'd been missing Shiro until I saw him. I SWEAR I ADORE THAT CRAZY HOLLOW.

This filler is continuing to entertain the hell out of me. And the bondage!IchiIshi in the omake was just stupid enough to make me lol.

Seriously, the last anime character that made me think that was Kouga the wolf youkai from Inuyasha. I was practically expecting him to spit.

I thought Renji and Rukia's conversation during the episode preview was hilarious. Very RenRuki:

Renji: Why's the baboon part of Zabimaru a woman?!
Zabimaru: Because you wanted it that way, you pervert.
Rukia: Is that right?
Renji: Rukia! I can explain!
Zabimaru: I'll never forget the night you made me submit to you for the first time!
Rukia: You're the worst.
Renji: .. Eh.

I almost died laughing. Poor Renji.

But uh Zabimaru's woman voice make it sound like a man ;___; I will admit, Zabimaru's sexuality REALLY confuses me. I'm trying not to think about it.
_debbiechan__debbiechan_ on August 26th, 2009 03:42 pm (UTC)

Zabimaru's sexuality totally makes sense in my version of Bleachverse! XD

Woman!Zabimaru is lolarious. I love her furry self. And the Tazmanian Devil Kazeshini! Hahaha, he's cute. I'm getting so much damn squee out of all this.

Kazeshini is beast. Just, wow. I mean, I can see why Shuuhei would be afraid of his own zanpakutou. But I'm wondering how they'll get their zanpakutou back. Physical retaliation won't work in case you kill them. So that leaves Mayuri's strange experiments or the method Rukia used on Sode no Shirayuki (even though Muramasa intervened). But clearly, Rukia's attachment isn't echoed by Shuuhei. .__.

I'm also cheering on Shirosaki. Muramasa's a little annoying. I keep staring at his freaking long fingernails and that strange purple eyeshadow. And yeah, echoing an above comment...it's a little stupid to bring the instinct out of a being who is completely made of instincts. -.-;;

Zabimaru confuses me. Clearly, they confuse Renji too. I mean, the monkey lady has a very male voice. Failed sex change? That would explain all the hair. At any rate, I really can't wait to see the next episode! More Hisagi + Kazeshini time.

I can't help but wonder where Kenpachi, Byakuya, and Yachiru are though. Hm.

I loved this episode to pieces as well.

Zabimaru's voice threw me off at first, but after awhile it became obvious that she was indeed female sounding.

Shirosaki........is so much fun to watch...

I like how the reason Shuuhei hates the shape of his weapon is the same that Kazeshini loves the shape of the weapon.

That conversation during the next episode preview was hilarious.
Kylara: WUTkarenai on August 26th, 2009 04:24 pm (UTC)
Natsuuuuuuuuuuuuuu <3

I still dunno about Zabimaru's voice. I listened to it again and I just go back and forth. I mean, the seiyuu is a woman, I believe, but the tenor of it. Humm.

//Kazeshini loves the shape of the weapon.//
Kazeshini is a narcissist?

never give up!  ৵  never surrender!: (bleach) rukia r-really?loquaciousquark on August 26th, 2009 04:42 pm (UTC)
ngl, i too am totally loving this filler. shirosaki's as delightfully unpredictable as always, kazeshini is totally freakin' awesome, and unohana's actually getting decent screen time. and between returning the zanpakutou to their shinigami and byakuya's location, there's actual mystery! tbh, this is the first episode in ages that actually disappointed me when it ended because i was riveted on the action. can't wait for next week!

(oh, and the animation's been pretty excellent lately, too. i thought rukia in particular looked consistently well-done this time around, especially that worried side/down look.)
ruinin fuckin' everythingallelujah on August 26th, 2009 04:48 pm (UTC)

If shirosaki is somehow seperated from Ichigo, that would sure make for some interesting shit. AKA, it'd be reminiscent of the days he couldn't just plot kai kendo everything with bankai or hollow ichigo.
yah senbestyah_senbest on August 26th, 2009 07:31 pm (UTC)
i'm not too fond of the idea that shirosaki'll materialize outside ichigo,
that'll just make him normal, just like any other zanpakutous (which we know he isn't =p)
Hichigo shouldn't be exposed to the harsh, contaminated outer world; he's too precious for that XDD lolz

*am looking forward to Hichigo kicking muramasa's hairy ass off* =p

I'm wondering if Renji took up Mayuri's offer of changing the sex of his zanpakutou from that omake. :3?
asamisaikaasamisaika on August 27th, 2009 12:00 am (UTC)
Despite the deep voice, I think I might have a slight femcrush on "Chimpette" (... which "Snakey" so affectionately called her). It seems many Bleach chicks have the power to make even straight women turn gay for them... though many Bleach guys have the same ability with straight men.
eriu11: Ishida Serious Businesseriu11 on August 27th, 2009 01:58 pm (UTC)
I'm loving this filler to pieces.
Yes, to crazy Kazishini and his wind.
Yes to concerned Rukia
Yes! to mystery,
YES! to comic Renji and Zabimaru ( or Chimpette and Snakey as I shall now be calling them)
F***ing YES to Shirosaki!! Crazy hollow, I love you so!

I was really disappointed when the episode ended. I didnt want it to end. It's awesome.
Also, am I the only person who thought Muramasa pulling Shiro out of Ichigo was pure nightmare fuel. Seriously, I felt so bad for Ichigo.

i will not fangirl.
i will not fangirl.
i will not fangirl.

...oh, who am i kidding. i had to replay shuuhei's first scene three times before i actually managed to pay attention to a single word he was saying. ^^;;; that man really is just too damn hot for my health. *fans self*

also, muramasa's eyes are green/aqua? i could've sworn they were blue/purple before. O_o see, i'm not just being funny when i say the gorgeousness of these characters fries my brain. =P

i find it interesting that muramasa killed his wielder. especially given that he seems to be so damn powerful-- and i'd always assumed the zp was basically as powerful as the shinigami was. in order for the zp to become more powerful, the shinigami had to achieve that power as well. but apparently not-- you can have a really strong zp be a part of someone who's not as strong. (or perhaps i'm just taking this assumption too far-- maybe muramasa was not more powerful than his shinigami, but the shinigami was just having an off day or something. but if the shinigami was so powerful, then who the heck is he and what's the excuse for us not knowing about him?).

hot-girl!zabimaru's voice is just too damn hilarious. xDDDDD i love how deep it is, it feels so out of place but i wouldn't change it because it makes me LMAO every single time i hear it.

renji: *edges away from bickering zabimarus* meeeh, my zanpakutou are so embarrassing. ne, rukia, can i trade you?
rukia: you stay away from sode no shirayuki, you perv. ¬_¬
renji: T_T

i like that zabimaru fights "because it's in their nature." i can definitely agree with that. and i think it's nice that each zp has their own particular reason for rebelling against their shinigami. i looooove that they're making sure each reason makes sense according to the character. great job, anime team! ♥

i also like the difference in personalities between the two aspects of the zp. i find it very fitting that snakey is all "wheeeeee...!" and all eager to swing the sword around, while hot-girl!zabimaru pulls him back and tries intimidation tactics. those are also sides of renji-- he'll be the first to rush head-first into battle, but there are also times where he stays back and waits for the right moment, the right situation to come up. i think it's very fitting.

i still don't like that the materialization of the zp use the "released sword" version of themselves to fight. the only one who can pull it off is kazeshini and that's because the released form is a scythe and he's designed to look like a grim reaper. well, i guess senbonzakura as well, 'cause he's a samurai and the sword is your basic katana. oh, and zangetsu, of course. but the others? it just feels off. i think they should just have them fight without swords.

...why does muramasa want to bring out shirosaki? hasn't he figured that's kinda suicidal of him? that's not a soul within a soul that he can just free, it's just ichigo being schizo. *eyeroll*

kazeshini redefines the term "awesomeness" in all his little psycho ways. no, really. i just love that he mentioned the reason shuuhei doesn't like him is the shape of the blade-- the idea that kazeshini looks like the quintessential grim reaper with a scythe is what initially attracted me to it as a sword and even more now as a materialized spirit, and i absolutely adore the fact that that is the cause of the rift between shinigami and zp. it makes all the sense in the world that shuuhei would basically reject that part of him-- he's literally wielding death itself. of course he's gonna be afraid of that. oh, i just love these two. =3

my jaw hit the floor when kazeshini said to take a closer look at the blades and shuuhei's reflection appeared in them... my god, talk about getting the air knocked out of you. that was just damn intense.

and of course, the biggest mystery of all...

...WHERE IN  THE WORLD  SOUL SOCIETY IS KUCHIKI BYAKUYA? *cue carmen sandiego theme song*

wow, this filler arc keeps getting better. who would've thought? =^____^=

(and LOL, what's with the bondage in the omake? =P).
tenkyoen on August 30th, 2009 04:06 pm (UTC)
I'm a little late posting this, but (to my defense) I had to recover from the fangirling enough so my post wouldn't look like spam...lol


*Ahem* That's all I really noticed during the episode until I watched it again ^_^ But one thing I did notice was that there seemed to not only be Ichigo's inner world, but a reverse one--the place with yellow/orange buildings, red sky, and black clouds? Is that where Shirosaki goes when Zangestu calls him back? (like in the original Ichigo/Kenpachi fight) I've been really wondering that...

Oh yes, and I do have to give congrats to the rest of the episode. Insane!Zanpaktou and Fem?Zanpaktou make me lol. X3
