Bleach - New Ending Song  
So, what do you think? Seeing everybody rising from ashes, I can only say this is one of the most hopeful Bleach ending songs.

ETA: Could that person sitting near to Shunsui possibly be Ukitake?!

Holy crap, I've got the shivers. THIS is Bleach, where no matter how hard the heroes fall, they'll pick themselves up and keep struggling. This is how things need to go, Kubo. I want to see that ending shot group striding into real!Karakura with such confidence to save the day as nakama. Just... This totally blew me away.

I think the animation is beautiful, and I especially like the first scene where Orihime tries(?) to give Ichigo water. (I kinda don't get whether she actually give it to him in the end.)

Though she was really weirdly proportioned in that shot where she smiled and I can't quite figure out why. Kinda sad since she looked great in some past EDs.

Renji and Chad get pretty shafted in that ED, though. :(

Nah he ignores her, and she drops the water lol. In character, I guess, since Ichigo keeps ignoring Inoue? _o/

Personal guess is that the sequences with black background are not only hints at what's happens next in manga, but also Ichigo's thoughts, somehow, how everyone fought, not just him?

The he gets resolve again, the two girls smile seeing he is alright, and everyon's off. XD

I dislike the song - too whiny for my taste - but it's very nakama-like and very hopeful. I like the animation, not the song _o/

Also, beautiful RUkia is always a blast :3

It's a very climatic ending. And very Bleach-like :) The shot when they're walking forward together is stunning. Despite the world being destroyed they don't give up.

As for the animation itself I just adore Orihime's hands in the water <3 Beautifully done ^^

I see a hint of IchiRuki there. Orihime's trying to reach Ichigo but it's Rukia who catches his attention and accepts(?) him. I hope I'm not the only one ^^

No, I saw it, too. The IshiHimer in me noticed that Uryuu was always behind Orihime, supporting her, but that might just be me. xD

What happened to Orihime's face? Rukia looks very... mature... (?)
peca_06peca_06 on July 13th, 2010 09:55 pm (UTC)
I didn't think Ichigo (except the shot where he realizes something and you can only see his eye and his nose, everything else looked weird to me, maybe I'll have to get used to it :/ ) nor Orihime were drawn well in this ending. Rukia on the other hand looked gorgeous <333. I loved the concept. Ichigo is down, everybody picks and dust themselves up and keep on going without avail. I also enjoyed the Orihime bit with the water and the sweet smiles on the two girls (like a bit of hope and relief that things are going to be ok for Ichigo and everyone). I really dislike the music. Although I understand that the atmosphere calls for a sad ballad, this particular song doesn't get me emotionally invested. I don't know why... I agree that this one is more BLEACH than the last Ending.

Inoue's walk cycle makes my face sad because she looks like a robot -_-

I've never been big fan of tracking shots of stationary people in 2d cause they are hard to draw without rotoscoping, which they didn't.

Technically speaking the best parts of this drawing wise are Inoue's hands in the water and the tracking shot of IchiThing.

I have for the most part stopped watching anime because very few have good animation for non action scenes.
Kylara: BRAINSkarenai on July 13th, 2010 11:32 pm (UTC)

That's honest-to-god how she actually looked running around in the Lust Arc. I have no idea why the anime can't do running/walking these days when it comes to Orihime.

Loving the new ED...it's really nice that we got to see everyone, and not just static pictures of them. It could even pass as the new OP! :3

;_________; Komamura holding wounded Hisagi. I have to start ship this pairing a little bit more.

Oh... And I think it can be Ukitake (omgmakeittrueplease): there's no other captain (and this person is definitely wearing a captain's coat) who's got long bright-coloured/white hair...

I really like this ending. I think that Orihime looks lovely, but there's something different about the way her face looks. Not bad different, just different. Rukia looks really beautiful. I really like the animation and the music! ^_^
kanjo_girl: yoruichikanjo_girl on July 13th, 2010 10:52 pm (UTC)
Did anyone else laugh when it showed Hitsugaya's pissed off face? And, wow, the ending was great. I love how it finally showed Rukia in the lead, rather than Ichigo.

Yup...that "grrrr" expression was hilarious~

I thought orihime was getting water for herself, not ichigo LOL the way I saw it was she was getting water and noticed ichigo was right there in front of her
Shinigami_Lucia: Rukia&Konshinigami_lucia on July 13th, 2010 11:49 pm (UTC)
That's what I thought too. I don't think she was trying to give water to Ichigo because we didn't see her move in a way that she was trying to offer water to him. I think she was getting it for herself but then saw that Ichigo was so depressed and she drop the water.

Oh, I like it. From the start where you see the chaotic and stormy skies and you can tell that this ED is about how the war broke a lot of people to the end where the nakama are united and moving forward together.

Rukia looks stunning here and Ichigo looks so sad in that first shot (and I wish we could see Kira's face!). It really reflects how he feels about what happened. But, like at the end of this ED, I hope he can move forward, with the help of his friends :)
Aleamisaaleamisa on July 14th, 2010 03:07 am (UTC)
Hm you know lately I am beginning to think Orihime's importance is going to be reviving all the dead and injured of the squads. She is the one who can bring back the dead, no?
manonlechat: hisagi: stupid sexy shuuheimanonlechat on July 14th, 2010 03:48 am (UTC)
Very nice.

I do miss the wild, wacky energy of the last ED, but this new ending brings out the drama and hope of the Bleach storyline. My favorite shot was of Komamura supporting Hisagi.
