I remember in january that Adult Swim showed a video of Bleach and it said NEW EPISODES IN APRIL and well guess what happened? Delayed till August.
Probably cause back then they showed 4 episodes every saturday. They went real quick with showing 110 to 169, it finished like 2-3 months because of that and now they are repeating episodes 1- 169 again instead of showing 1 arc, we will be seeing every arc to when Grimmjow gets his ass handed to him again.
Funny thing is, they probably estimated that by the time they get up to Grimmjows defeat, it will be August.
Think of it this way, when it gets up to 2 arcs later, we will get to wait another 5-6 months to see a whole new 2 more arcs in dub.
They seem to show 2 new arcs every 5-6 months. --- PSN: YAMI_ANUBIS_X
Lol good thing I dont watch english dub anymore... When you guys wanna see what happens in Huecco Mundo, just remember the name Amagai and hate it with a passion... Then be patient and wait to hate Muramasa --- Just Shut Up and Fish!!-Wisdom Cube
There's been absolutely nothing wrong with the three filler arcs, they were all well made and enjoyable. The only bad thing abouth them is that the placement of them wasn't thought out at all and the writers just went: Head Writer: "OMG, we're almost caught up to the manga!! Better make a filler arc!" Writer 2: "But, we're right in the middle of an arc." Head Writer "No time to think about that! MANGA! Put it in starting next week!"
