Ken-chan's fight is finally over! Great fight but this episode is a little draggy - too much flashbacks! (=_=)I like the last 5 minutes the most. The part showing Nel and Nnoitra looking at each other, before Nnoitra finally collapses, is nicely done. It's as if they are bidding their final farewell in a silent manner. It makes one feel a little emotional.New Ending ThemeThere's a new Ending Theme!! The song is quite sweet. It's sung by Tsuji Shion and it's called Sky Chord ~Otona ni Naru Kimi he~. I love the new Ending Credits! It gives away a lot of the the new upcoming Turn Back the Pendulum (TBTP) arc. This should mean that we are moving into the new arc very soon! ^(*-*)^ Yea! TBTP is one of my favorite arcs in Bleach!SummaryKenpachi has learned Kendo from Yamamoto before. However, he has never used it in real combat battles as it's not his style. To him, the only thing that makes sense in Kendo is a katana is more powerful if one swings it with both hands instead of just one. Having said that to Nnoitra, he uses both hands to hold his katana and gives Nnoitra a big slash across his body. With that, Nnoitra loses the use of 4 of his 6 arms. The fight is over but Nnoitra insists on continuing. Kenpachi decides to go with Nnoitra's wishes. Holding his katana with only one hand, Kenpachi gives Nnoitra the fatal slash. Nnoitra is finally defeated. The last person on his mind and in his eyes is Nel.PicturesKenpachi learning Kendo from Yamamoto!2 hands!Nnoitra is seriously injured but he still wants to fight!1 hand!At his dying moment, Nnoitra and Nel look at each other, as if bidding their final farewell.
