I was watching today's episode and the first five minutes, literally, the first FIVE minutes are a rehash of the last half of last episode. That is terri-bad pacing. It's not even the studio's fault really, because Bleach chapters are hella short. I've only realized lately how bad Kubo is with pacing, but when you look closely, a lot of panels are unnecessarily large and silent action can take up most of a chapter. Regardless, I'm still looking forward to its return tomorrow and I'm sure the final arc will be good, but I'd love it if Kubo got a better sense of what he's doing and refine his pacing. It's bad when the anime's able to catch up like this despite the lengthy filler arc preceding it.
