There's a "sly" easter egg from the anime series called Bleach shown in the third episode where Alexandra takes Elektra to a room filled with weaponry. As Elektra sorts through her master's swords, there's one shot which shows Renji Aburai's iconic Zanpakuto shelved behind Elektra. His Zanpakuto is a spiked sword known as Zabimaru and is one of the franchise's most famous blades. The Zanpakuto has an odd Shikai state that gives it jagged edges. The segmented blade can be used as both a rigid sword or whip. Although this easter egg doesn't mean Bleach has tied to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it just so happens that the show brought it as a set prop. See more »

Enjoy it for what it is: Good entertainment. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was engaging, suspenseful and fun. The music, setting, acting, cinematography, etc was all pretty solid. It's a superhero show, folks...no one should expect something that rises to the level of 'high art.There are good parts in this series for sure. But this show did not fulfill its potential. The story is generic and much simpler than Daredevil .The actors are mostly good, but their characters don't really evolve. They just go through the action like they are doing the dishes.
just i think it was some problems in this series like:
1/ What goes wrong always end wrong. The first and biggest wrong foot step was Finn Jones in the shoes of Danny Rand, it can't be, it just can't, he wasn't up to it. That said, along with the bad writing that made the show in the bottom of the four shows "Dare/Jessica/Luke", we had the first flaw in The Defenders.
2/ Daredevil is no longer our Daredevil, the one we knew in his own fabulous show was darker, wiser, calmer and smarter than this copy. In The Defenders we saw another Daredevil, with a bad nerve and more good looking than Danny, just that and nothing more.
Overall it's definitely still watchable , and a good TV superheros series .
