Well technically OM never actually "scanlated" anything. Their manga was by various groups.

The speed scans you saw go up on Friday were by Sleepy Fans, which are LQ scans. Then the were often replaced by Ju-Ni scans, which are (arguably) comprable to Binktopia scans in quality. (Mangastream has Binktopia scans)

If you look at a Sleepy Fans scanlation and a Binktopia scanlation, it should be clear that Binktopia has better quality, and more work put into it.

IMO, Binktopia scanlations are better quality than Ju-Ni, but Ju-Ni doesn't have giant watermarks, so that's one of their perks.

I still think Binktopia scanlations are best though, because they're much faster than anything else, and they're also very high quality. The one thing I like a lot better about Ju-Ni releases is that they have more accurate translations IMO. (I don't actually mind the watermarks since they're kinda transparent anyway.)

Ah, ok, thanks for clarifying :D

Anyways, I'm going to watch the Bleach episode now :D

Anime 283
Spoiler:
So the Starrk fight comes to a finish. I just wonder how short that fight might have been if any of the four captains class Soul Reapers that were fighting him, actually used bankai. I think Kubo could have done a little more with Starrk's fight, it just seemed a little rushed to me.

It looks like we'll get another look at Hallibel's back-story and what she looked like as a regular hollow.

That speed technique Aizen used in this episode didn't seem like Flash Step or Sonido.

And I'm guessing that when Starrk and Lilynette became two, they also became Arrancar?

Did we even get a Harribel flashback before? And I still don't understand why Aizen killed her :/

Spoiler:
Aizen got tired of her fighting. o-O since Starrk and Barragan were already killed. So Aizen saved some energy for the shinigami and vizards and finished her off. Saying how he went through some much trouble to gather the 10 espadas, and how Aizen alone is stronger than them. (..Bleach Wiki) I would refer to the manga, but all the mangasites are closed D:

Not too sure about the spelling... I've seen it both ways too. I've seen a lot of names spelled differently...

I'm kinda angry that there's no Bleach manga this week... (Along with the rest of the WSJ manga...) But I guess the mangaka need breaks every now and then too. XD

I believe Kubo/the Japanese version uses "Harribel" but the official dubs use "Hallibel".
Personally, I like using Hallibel, because... Well, it sounds more feminine imo XD. Idk, I just prefer the Ls.

Yeah, that's a shame... Though I think it's Shonen Jump themselves that are taking the break, no? I refuse to believe that the mangakas haven't already written, like, 50 chapters into the future.

Ahh my summer is "over" on the Third of September. First day of SENIOR YEAR. XD

I'm sure the mangakas didn't write that far, but they probably planned fairly far in advance. XD

Seriously, you learn a LOT about the manga industry (especially WSJ) from Bakuman. Read it, I recommend it... It's where I get all my inside info on the industry. XD That and my friend who goes by the username "Access Time" - I added him to a convo on MSN once but he didnt really say much. XD

When you say Kubo uses a certain spelling, you mean in actual Romaji?? Please provide a pic if possible - I'm really quite curious.

Yes everyone read Bakuman now, it's such a great manga. But anywho it does suck that there is no SJ this week. I was looking forward to hopefully seeing some Ichigo fighting Zangetsu.

I've never read Bakuman, and I don't think I'll plan to. D:
Schools starting next week so only Naruto, Bleach and Rosario+Vampire if the third season comes out.

Never really got into R+V.

That pic from the manga is WIN. XD IN YOUR FACE, VIZ!!! XD

I'm lookin' forward to Ichigo vs Zangetsu too. XD

Oh, did anyone else see the interview with Ichigo's seiyuu? It's on CR. ...This is why I am buying all the manga and I have an anime membership on CR. XD

Anime:
Spoiler:

I just watched the new ep too. I love that color attack of Kyoraku-taicho's. XD It's epic. ...But I think he needs a new haori. XD


And just one more thing - even if you don't plan to read Bakuman I suggest you watch the anime. It's coming out this fall... So you'll probably learn a lot just from that... Just sayin'. XD

it's on crunchyroll. just go to crunchyroll and look through the recent news. and you should be going to crunchyroll to see the eps anyway. that or another official streaming site. (vizanime, etc.)

seiyuu is the japanese term for a voice actor or voice actress. when people compare american and japanese voice actors they tend to say va (voice actor/actress) vs seiyuu rather than typing "american voice actor vs japanese voice actor" ...its a good thing to know if youre into any anime. XD so yeah, seiyuu refers to the japanese voice actor.

Ooh I dunno. I believe Kubo-sensei said there would be a short arc after this one, followed by a long one... So there'll probably be episodes to fill those arcs. Not to mention the possible filler arcs, which may be needed if the anime catches up to the manga.

Anyway, I think there'll be at least 100 more episodes, but I haven't got a clue as to how many. I just think 100 is the least amount of additional episodes there would be. There'll probably be more though.

So the manga and anime is gonna go on for a while... good.

FMA recently ended, and Naruto and One Piece are both at like, the final battle. Would be suckish if Bleach would end now too.

What, are they hurrying to finish before 2012? xD;

To tell the truth I kind of wanted Bleach to end. I didn't like what Kubo was doing with this Arc at all. Even when all the Captains were fighting we didn't see much of their powers. Same goes for the Vizards, they just kinda got wiped out. As long as the next Arc is better than this one I will have no complaints.

I think pronunciation is a matter as well; we know the Japanese can't pronounce the letter L very well. Like how Lilinette is pronounced as 'Ririnette'. But that doesn't mean we can pronounce Barragan as Ballagan. XD

If, I mean when, Kubo is really going to end Bleach, I just hope at least he will reveal all the Captains' bankai. =\
