Bleach Recaps: Ep. 217, The Adventures of Priscilla Queen of the Desert

Let me sum up "Bleach" 217 in one word:  gay.

So I'm not going to recap this one.  Its an entire episode based around Charlotte, the most offensively awful character ever made.  You take Dondochakka, Granz, Pesche, Princess Lampshade-hat, Jar Jar Binks, Tingle, Vaan, and throw in six Carmen Ghias for the right about of pure homosexuality, then you get Charlotte.  I physically could not watch for a single second.  Instead I watched "Married With Children" on Nickelodeon, that wasn't unrelentingly horrible.  I'd rather watch an marathon of Larry the Cable Guy movies.  On that thought, all you need to do is put Larry in a thong and you'll approximate the raw pain that comes from watching a single moment of this show.  I'd rather have the box set of the "Transformers" trilogy surgically sewn into my optic nerve so I can never see anything ever again but Michael Bay's filmmaking brilliance.

Hell, I'll dress up as Charlotte myself before watching him on TV.  At least that way I don't have to see it.

So the recap I'll give is this:  gay.  That's the only word I'll ever need to describe this episode.  Instead, I'll throw in a pic of all the "Bleach" girls standing around looking sexy.  I was going to go with the nude one, but I suspect somebody would get made at me if I did that.  Here's to next week, when "Bleach" might actually be watchable.


  1. I don't see who would get angry except for the gay men and the straight women. Hell, there both probably all ready angry for that pic right there.

  2. I know Charlotte's offensive and all, but I found myself laughing my ass off every second he was on screen. Not one inch of him is meant to be taken seriously.


  3. I never took him seriously. What, am the guy who is I going to start a protest against Tite Kubo because he's offensive to gay people? No, I'm the guy who says out loud "I'm not watching an entire episode about this faggot" and changes the channel.

    The girls are for my own enjoyment.

  4. Rukia and Soi Fon are the only ones up there without ridiculously huge breasts.

  5. I'm confused. you disliked the episode because it revolved AROUND a gay male, or because his character is just awful? Because it would be a little gross to dismiss the entire show over something as petty as someone sexual orientation.

  6. @Anon: Considering I owe Yamichika no ill-will, its Charlotte. He's the kind of offensively stupid gay stereotype that I thought the world had banished to weird early 90s arcade games. Not to mention the motherfucker is LOUD too. Listening to him talk is like listening to a cover of a Lady Gaga song sung by a mentally disabled hyena.

    all you missed is yumichika's excellent and overpowered shikai. if you can stomach it, skip to the last few minutes
