5.0 out of 5 stars Fake Karakura Town, 27 Jan 2014

This review is from: Bleach: Complete Series 11 [DVD] (DVD)
This eleventh series boxed set contains episodes 213 to 229 of the 'Bleach' anime. With the exception of the filler of the first two and last three episodes, the set covers the beginning of the Fake Karakura Town arc that sees Aizen's attack on the world of living begin in earnest as the top three Espada and their retinues fight the high ranking Soul Reapers who have come to stop them.

The first two episodes (213 and 214) of the set are the Karakura Raizer filler that sees Kon and some of Ichigo's human friends recruited by Urahara to protect the world of the living while he is working on a project for the Soul Society and Ichigo is in Hueco Mundo. This was a reasonably filler arc based on a short omake story from the manga that sees the Fourth Wall take a beating and includes lots of very funny moments across the two episodes.

Episodes 215 to 226 cover the beginning of the Fake Karakura Town arc and I would probably say this is definitely one of the better parts of the series in general. With the exception of episodes 215 and 226, Ichigo and his friends don't appear in the part of the arc that this set covers with the focus being on the Soul Reaper forces who are fighting in the World of the Living. The action in this arc is very good with a lot of characters joining the battle at various points and sees a lot of Kido, Zanpakutô and Resurrección put to use. One highlight of this arc is the battle for the pillars that sees Yumichika Ayasegawa reveal his true power and has Shūhei Hisagi release his sword's Shikai for the first time in the series. Another very good part of the action is where Harribel's three Fracciónes, and their pet, go up against Rangiku Matsumoto and a number of other Lieutenants. Although this fight is a lot less gory than the manga version, it is still very entertaining and has a good ebb and flow to the action. Other interesting parts of this part of the arc include Marechiyo Ōmaeda doing something good for the first (and so far last) time in the series and whenever Head Captain Yamamoto takes action.

The final three episodes in this set (227, 228 and 229) are individual filler stories that vary in quality. The first of the three episodes, 'Wonderful Error', is probably the best and is based on a few special chapters of the manga. The story takes place right before the start of the Bleach's first episode and sees Ichigo and his friends have their first day at High School while in Soul Society Renji is promoted to Lieutenant and Rukia is assigned to Karakura Town. This is a light and entertaining slice of life episode. The following episode, 'Summer! Sea! Swimsuit Festival!!', is loosely based on another omake story sees the Soul Reaper Women's Association take a trip to the World of the Living for fun at the beach resulting in the usual hijinks that accompany any anime beach episode. While not as good as the previous episode, this one is still relatively funny. The final episode of the set sees Ikkaku Madarame and Yumichika Ayasegawa travel to the World of the Living only to be forced to stay with Keigo Asano and his sister. This isn't that great an episode but it does have a few humorous moments.

The animation and voice acting of the episodes in this set remain as good as they usually do for the series (with both English and Japanese versions being available to watch of course). Episode 215 also sees a new opening introduced, Shojo S, which is probably one of my favourites of the series.

Overall this set includes some very entertaining episodes and although the series moves into filler towards the end of the set, due to the anime catching up to where the manga was at that point, most of the filler remains quite entertaining. This set easily deserves a full five stars.

I am a huge Bleach fan and have been for many years! This is a great anime that doesn't get the praise it deserves anymore and I am eagerly awaiting the collection of series 12 to come out. But this item is great value - if you are a Bleach fan this is a must!

This review is from: Bleach: Complete Series 11 [DVD] (DVD)
Really my only complaint about the Bleach series is that the main plot keeps on getting interrupted by other stories and plots. These though are good. I cannot really say much else that I have not already said of others in the series. SO: Brilliant! Buy it if you like good plots, good animation, excellent action and anything but shallow characters.

Bleach is a great anime with an amazing story line and yet Series 11 just made it even better, with more fun, fighting and games with so many lovable character's it looks like ichigo his friends and the soul reapers have more hard tasks ahead of them

4.0 out of 5 stars start Of the final battle, 28 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bleach: Complete Series 11 [DVD] (DVD)
Picking up where series 10 ended after the viserd flashback, the final battle between the Arrancars and Soul reapers begins. These battles arnt as big as what will come later, but is enough to give you a sense of what the later battles will be like, and glad its in a replacer of Karakura town rather then the real one.
however, between the start and after Soi fons battles, it then deverts form the main story yet again, and these filler episodes arnt really worth seeing, and can be a little annoying for diverting from the main story.
however, excluding the filler episodes, this series of Bleach marks the beginning of the final battle and isn't something to be missed
