Woah. I usually dont brag about Bleach's animation, but man was the animation sick in this episode!
I wish someone would tell the directors of the anime to just keep using these guys no matter the cost. It will pay off in the end when everyones buying the DVDs because they look so great rather than skimp on the talent yet still pay a decent amount for them and then never sell a fraction of the DVD boxsets you would have normally with the better quality animators.
A pie in the sky?

Even though this animation will only ever be present in the fight scenes (Ichigo vs. Grimmjow: all 3 encounters were animated like this I think. Maybe the 2nd time wasn't), this is enough to keep me waiting for the big fights. If they have this animation for when Ulquiorra and Ichigo start fighting for real, that'll make for some great action.
Great animation indeed, it would be even greater if it could stay this way
Since Studio Pierrot fails so much on Naruto animation, they make up for it in Bleach.
Bleach is always more intresting animated IMO
The sword fencing action translated very well into anime form it was one of the better episodes.
