My heart sank when Dattebayo decided to shelf the fansubbing for Bleach as a licensed online version of subbed episodes are now available on Crunchyroll (for a fee if you don’t want ads). But we know when there are punters who like free stuff, in no time there was an alternative fansubbing site up continuing where DB left off.

It wasn’t until I was playing catch up all the way to episode 280 that I noticed that the folks at Studio Pierrot indulge in a mild version of fan service (apart from the obvious ones concerning Matsumoto’s ample knockers).

See what you think!
