When there's more screaming than talking,
Squashed faces, deformed heads, repeat scenes
You know it's crappy animation quality.
You know somebody's done something shitty.
When the hero fails to appear in twenty minutes,
And the heroine gives up, calls it quits
You know it's a filler episode of fail,
You know Kubo's gonna send some loser to jail.
Yeah, basically Rukia was MIA. She showed up, but that was it. Do these people seriously not know how to write her? I've seen less OOC fanfiction floating around! What's up with the "Zanpakutou + Shinigami giant reiatsu lovefest" without her? What's up with the "Ichigo's a lost cause, he's in the dome. We're outside. Eh, whatever." attitude? Geez, if all the IchiHime fans watch the anime and don't read the manga, I'm not surprised that they don't see the IchiRuki.
BAD FILLER. BAD FILLER.
That's what I see. >_____> Yeah, I give this an F-. F for FAIL and the - for the loss of Rukia's dignity as a character. I'm going to stop watching these episodes, even if the Shinigami Cups at the very end are hilarious.
