Bleach is finally set to make its anime return in 2021. I will express my thoughts on this later but today we are talking about the Fake Karakura Town Arc.

Heres the thing there are two arcs that I am going to talk about today. They are the Arrancar: Decisive Battle of Karakura arc and Arrancar: Downfall arc. But the only the parts that take place in the Fake Karakura Town.

I am not sure if there is even an arc called The Fake Karakura Town Arc. Feel free to correct me is there is. Despite what the title might suggest I love this arc and the battles that take place in it.

To give some perspective I suffered like the majority of the fanbase by having to sit through the Zanpakuto Rebellion and Beast Swords arcs.
But I was so excited when the Fake Karakura Town Arc resumed. Everything from the opening to seeing each Epsada’s Resurrección was awesome.

Despite this there are parts that really annoyed me thus I have put them in a list form.

So, here are 8 Astonishing Reasons Why Fake Karakura Town Arc Is Really Odd.

Reason Number 8: The Bad Dialogue

Ōmaeda making a stupid observation

Ōmaeda making a stupid observation this is one of the many times in this arc where characters say some of the most idiotic statements. Bleach Episode 226 At 6m 42s

Let’s start with the bad dialogue.
Now Bleach is not known for having thought-provoking conversations among its characters.
It does have some and even in this arc, they are much quality back and forth between the characters.
Despite this much of the dialogue is not good even for Bleach standards. So, obviously you want examples so here are some.
When Head Captain Yamamoto jumped in to save Momo, Hisagi, Kira, and Rangiku, Ōmaeda commented that even the Yamamoto would enter the front line.
Thankfully Sui Feng corrected him but pointing out that everyone came here to fight even Yamamoto.
What makes this even more mind-numbing is that earlier in this conflict Yamamoto made the first move putting Aizen, Gin, and Tosen in a fire cage.

The camera even ZOOMS on Omaeda watching this. So if he just saw Yamamoto get involved why even make this statement?

Omaeda made another dumb comment by the suggestion that Gentei Kaijo should be lifted when it already was.

I don’t even need to comment on how dumb that statement was. Omaeda could easily fill the list on his own but here are two different examples from other characters.
When Hisagi and Kira come to save Momo and Rangiku, Emilou one of Harribel’s Fraccion makes two dumb statements. She first asks who are these guys and then states later they must have come to help their friends.
Obviously she does not know these people are by name but I almost got the impression she did not even know they were Shinigami.
The other statement is so obvious. Of course, they came to help their friends and fight! What else or what other purposes would they have to come over?
The last example was when the captains were discussing who would fight Aizen.
I understand that tactics are important but the level of dialogue here was bad.
Saying things like I want to fight Aizen or can I join in this fight. Even Toshiro asked Lisa and Hiyori if they could handle Harribel so he could take on Aizen.
I could not understand why these questions/ comments were being made when everyone came to fight Aizen. That is why everyone is here.
It’s the equivalent of someone in batting lineup asking the manager if he can face the pitcher. Obviously you can face the pitcher that’s the point of you being in the lineup.
There other examples of this poor dialogue and I will point them out as they are relevant.

Reason Number 7: No One Knows Who Yamamoto Is

Harribel Commenting on how Captains could have defeated her fraccion

This is important because Harribel asks how could a captain level soul reapers defeat her fraction. But she compares Yamamoto to Toshiro which is ridiculous. How does she not understand who Yamamoto is? Bleach Episode 273 at 16m 29s
