    I want to say that the reincarnation part was implied early on. As far as Rukia's gigai and Isshin being able to have kids, the show has never touched those topics.

But I don't plan on checking out the newest filler arc, when I know stuff is filler I just don't wanna watch it unless its at most 5 or 6 episodes.

    The best filler arc I've ever seen though is probably in One Piece, the G8 arc. It just flowed extremely well, it just felt like a less serious One Piece, which was fine after Alabasta and Skypiea. Another good filler arc is the Garlic Junior arc in DBZ. Short and sweet, and it fit right in
    I agree that the Bount Arc should have been about half as long as it was. The Garlic Jr Saga pretty much set my standard for all subsequent filler in anime. It had good fighting, offered a genuinely interesting twist, and it made due without Goku or Vegeta. I honestly wish we could have had one Bleach filler that focused on Chad, Ishida, and Orihime dealing with a threat when Ichigo's powers were gone.

    Commenting on filler: Garlic Jr. saga was so great because it gave the other characters a chance to shine, because Goku was still missing at the time. That alone makes it grand to me.

    I can forgive mediocre fillers if it lets underused characters have some limelight.

    I'm glad this battle is over. I'm really curious to see what happened with Uryuu, Hiyori, and Urahara. Any predictions? I'm guessing the sword at Urahara's throat belonged to Grimmjow, but I have no idea who appeared near Hiyori. She said she smelled Shinigami; were there any Shinigami we know of who were unaccounted for?

    This chapter:

    Some people we were all expecting show up.

    And also someone probably nobody was expecting.

    Not sure what I think of the Zero division though.

    Exactly. That is why I adore the Arcs I mentioned. We got to see Orihime in action some more, same with Momo and to a lesser degree Isane.

    (Although the term "filler" makes no sense to me. Way I see it, anything people make money for is canon. Plus the anime is better as it has more stuff, so again it's all canon).

    Plus, I do not get how anyone couldn't like the Bount Arc. It had vampires! What could be cooler antagonists than that?

    Answer; soul-sucking vampires!

    Also Yoshino was a great character and I liked her scenes with Ishida.

    Edit: Sorry, I forgot about the Beast Sword Arc. That was cool too. We got to see Tatsuki, Chizuru and the others. Plus Orihime was instrumental in saving an innocent life and she made a new friend.

    So this is trolling because people didn't expect the designs for the zero division to be so One Piece-like?

    This is not at all how Canon works. The creator of the work decides what is canon, and they are armed with the right to strike things from that canon at will, even long after that thing was published/aired/whatever. Since anime filler is traditionally not associated with the actual writings of the author, that is why those things are usually not canon. "more stuff" and you liking it doesn't really change that--and certainly 'making money for' is no indicator--stuff gets retconned or struck into apocrypha all the time
    Plus, I do not get how anyone couldn't like the Bount Arc. It had vampires! What could be cooler antagonists than that?

    The arc itself was rather boring. Yoshino was the only new person who was interesting, and the little bit of her development with Ishida was the only thing that wasn't static about the characterization of the established cast.

    Other people have mentioned the Garlic Jr. Arc from DBZ; my personal standard for fillers is the Youkai Cat arc from InuYasha. Had powerful antagonists with a connection to InuYasha's father, lasted only 3-4 episodes, and most importantly--it established a very different, never before seen in-depth look at the relationship between Sesshoumaru and InuYasha, going so far as to introduce a new element for why Sesshoumaru begrudged his brother that the manga didn't even hint at. It may not strictly be canon, but at least it's clear that they really did try to do something other than stall time. That's something you can't say for most of the other fillers in InuYasha.

    Lol, Zero Division looks like a bunch of weirdos. Not really what I expected.

    Though, I'm mostly surprised there are only five members. I had anticipated there to be ten or seven of them.
