Bleach 215 - A Bleach SCANDAL

Bleach episode 215 review

Nothing of note happened in the episode, so let's talk about the new opening. It's by the Japanese girl rock band SCANDAL. You should know SCANDAL by now because of "Shunkan Sentimental," the previous ending song for Fullmetal Alchemist, which was really good and should still be the closing song for these final episodes. The opening includes Rukia and Orihime dancing to the song, which is the first time since that annoying song by Aqua Timez in the Bount days that we had interaction between the characters on the screen and the actual song (if you'll recall, it looked like Kon was singing the opening part of the song).

The only thing good about this episode.

So while I like SCANDAL, I hated this episode. Just one big monologue by one of the worst characters in all of anime, Ulquiorra. Shipping him with Orihime is a crime.

Character of the episode: Yamamoto
Yes, he actually seemed to be on top of things in this episode, but I'm sure he'll blunder down the line.

Episode rating (out of four stars): 1/2
