The assault on Las Noches continues with Ichigo, UryŻ and Chad facing off against the Privaron Espada, Arrancar who were formerly Espada and now hope to regain their rank by defeating Aizen's enemies. Meanwhile the current Espada are beginning to make their moves with Renji facing off against the head scientist of the Arrancar and Rukia is confronted by an opponent who reveals himself to be someone she knows well.
The eight episodes contained in this two disc set are very good with some very nice battles with the fight between UryŻ and Cirucci Sanderwicci, and Rukia's confrontation with the Ninth Espada are probably my favourite parts of this set. With most of the time in these episodes taken up with action, there is little in the way of plot advancement but they are still greatly entertaining. The animation and English dub are as good as they usually are for the series
The only real downside is that the comedy in the episodes themselves, mostly supplied by Nel and her `brothers', can be somewhat annoying in places but this is only a minor irritation in an otherwise very good set of episodes. The after episode sketches on the other hand are still quite funny. I feel this set is well worth a full five stars.
