Notes: Big round of applause for queenallie03 and knockthedoor please.

And after some consideration, the icon section of the report has been discontinued. Most icons are posted in one location -- bleach_icons and I'm told some icons over at animeicons. The bleach_icons community will continue to be watched for wallpapers and colorbars, but reporting every single icon post (one day hit the 10 mark) can be overwhelming. If there's a huge objection to this, the icon section will be re-introduced back into the report.

Bleach 21 Raw was released by Saiyaman.
Bleach 21 was subbed by Chihiro and Lunar.
Bleach chapter 169 Raw was posted. Post also leads to chapter discussion.
