I dont think it was that bad. Actually I thought it was pretty great. I really have missed Kon and this episode gave him alot of new screen-time and also made him a bit more strong then the last long time we have seen him in that puppet body of his. I also liked that the episode brought some old charaters back on the screen insted of making a sick filler with Ichigo again. I like that this episode is fokusing on some other charaters. I agree that the episode those not have much with Bleach to do and maybe have more with Ninja Noneseens incommen. In my eyes this is a better filler then the last one. Just hope they dont drag it out to long.
