        bleach was only good in the soul society arc hence why bleach fags are nostalgia fags

        Oh it does? I remember seeing a few eps of that at a friends house like 10+ years ago. Which was why I wanted to watch the show, but everything I've seen before that arc just sucks. Should I just skip ahead or brute force it?

          Tbh skip all the bullshit where he's a soul reaper/shinigami. Its not at all what most of the show is about and is honestly shit. I'd watch the first episode where he gets Rukia's powers just for some starting context, then skip directly to episode 16 where Rukia gets taken back to the Soul Society by Renji and Byakuya. The next few will be a training arc, and then they actually go to the Soul Society. The next 5 or so are a little meh but eventually you'll get to the fight with Renji (episode 30).

          With this, you've sampled a training arc, some bullshit filler and then the big boss battle payoff. If you don't like what you've seen, you won't like the rest of the series because its just this same formula/style repeated over and over.

        The only points in time where Ichigo was stronger than during his fight against Byakuya was during the full hollow transformation, after the dangai training, and after the royal guard training. Ichigo LITERALLY grew weaker because he feared his inner hollow so much.

      The anime is mismanaged. Bleach as a story is good and Kubo actually does things most mangaka physically can't as Japanese box thinking bugmen, but the anime pads for time even NOT in the filler. I suggest anyone interested in Bleach to read it online for freesies obviously. I can not stress enough how weird it is the anime is managed like hot trash. The Hueco Mundo/Aizen arc is the best arc and those episodes DRAG.

        Bleach became a big 3 for the anime not the manga. The anime is what made bleach iconic, like the soundtracks and voice actors. The manga has better art and less fillers but that's about it, Kubo was just a hack.

        I will have to add as a Bleach fan tho, that even when the manga is pretty much the best way to experience the story, the ending arc is pretty fucking bad and got rushed because Kubo's body was literally falling apart at the time. At least it wasn't as bad as Naruto's last arc, but it wasn't that far off.

          Well you got to understand, like with plenty of popular shounen series, the anime is made along the manga and even when it's a weekly series what happened in those Bleach manga chapters doesn't usually cover even half of the average length of an anime episode, so they had to do the usual filler-arc hell.

              Now that's you thinking logically. Unfortunately, shounen anime is pretty much just a kids show and I guess the people making them figure that kids don't really give a fuck about the story or pacing of it making a lot of sense, if they get to see cool fight scenes or maybe a breast jiggle every now and then.

        Like what, make his protagonist (who's apparently a super model) a super gentlemen who has nose bleeds and spasms if any woman even hints at sex?

        Make the main love interest literally so forgotten and given the least amount of character development besides "I ..I LOVE ICHIGOOOOOO" despite spending less time with him than the fuckin store shop owner?

        Power creep? Making the odds stacked against the good guys until they unlock a secret trumph card in EVERY fucking fight?

        What exactly has kubo done that wasn't the most bare bones generic shit. He's a master character designer, he WAS excellent at scene composition. He earned the number 3 spot, but that doesn't mean it was deep. He made the best manga to read on a train on the way to work.

              I don't think so and this is from someone who loved the anime as a kid and has crazy nostalgia for it. If you're an adult (25+) and have watched plenty anime and read manga, not just shonen but other things, then it will feel too childish. Even something like Naruto Shippuuden feels like a very adult story compared to it because it does have much more mature themes and visuals than it, and we're talking about a battle shonen here

      Watch the first arc. If you liked it then proceed to the second. If you're getting tired of it, stop, because the third arc it's the same shit but with more backstories and endless flashbacks. If you want to keep your sanity after the third act, stop after Aizen and Ichigo fight. The plot is reasonably done after it.

      Aside from the filler arcs (which aren't necessarily bad as they are well..filler. they add backstory), there's a reason there are so many nostalgiafags for it. Putting aside One Piece which is somehow still ongoing continuously, Bleach(as anime) is was alongside Naruto as the big "battle shonen" of the early 2000's. They both had their strengths and weaknesses; Naruto finished its run and gave rise to Boruto as a next-gen spinoff, but Bleach was never finished properly - the anime proved too fucking expensive to animate when Kubo wanted an uncompromising finish to go along with the manga, so it got dropped...but thanks to the outcry it got picked back up and given everything the wanted so he's going to do the last 2 big final arcs to conclude the anime and manga at the same place, finally.

      Bleach had a great ensemble cast and that's part of its strength, where each of them would be given time to shine, bad and good guys alike (and those that move from one side to another as things progress). You learn about their history, their abilities, their characters etc. So if all you want is a focus exclusively on the main characters and big battles, it has that, but if you don't care about all the others it may seem to drag for you. Also this was back in the day when there was no objection to having tons of different character designs including for the women, so enjoy that. Anyway, its a battle shonen, but its a pretty well made one from its era that banks a lot on a large cast.

      Glad its coming back and hopefully we'll get a game from the final seasons; there's more than enough characters now to make a great fighter be it Xenoverse 2 or DBFZ style.

        Seriously? Chad and Orihime got sidelined extremely hard, extremely early, and they were both from the OG protagonist squad. I don't think either of them did much of relevance after SS, I pretty much only remember Chad getting his ass beat, and Orihime either getting kidnapped or playing the medic while cheering on Ichigo from the sidelines.

        • 2 months ago
          Anonymous

          Which such a large cast you're not going to have each of them always equal, but Chad (after being sidelined for a time) comes back later with a massive power increase - and you learn the reasons for it too, especially after they go to fight on the Hollows' home turf. Orihime is always an important character not just being a love interest, but the reason she gets kidnapped is her power is specific to Aizen's plan in an arc - she's not the greatest battler but we learn that it isn't just that she "heals" but the way she does it is important for other stuff later on. Its the same way that Uruu is kinda sorta sidelined too in the middle of the series but... is going to be MASSIVELY important in the stuff yet to air in October as a lot of it concerns his people/powers.

          >to conclude the anime and manga at the same place, finally.
          Oh god I hope not. That was one of the biggest let downs I've ever experienced after hyping up Ichigo's new powers so much. My biggest hope is that he completely rewrites the abrupt ending, or barring that, at least spend some time exploring the aftermath and wrapping up some of the biggest plot holes.

          I meant how they were going to finally do the remaining arcs that were part of the core plot instead of leaving after the Fullbringer arc when the anime stopped, since there is a lot of seriously big shit yet to happen. However, it doesn't mean its going to be the exact same ending or as abrupt - I'm almost positive they'll have a lot of additional wrap up after all this time. Hell, even during the last time the anime ended they added a lot of wrap up stuff that wasn't in the manga to make it feel even kinda sorta like it was an ending, so I expect that this time they'll go all out beyond the manga. Kubo's pretty much has a blank check this time and he got all the old VAs back so this is the chance to make it a masterpiece.

      I’m currently rewatching it now cause of the new season which I never read but heard was really good despite the ending. When I first watched bleach I was pretty harsh on it and thought the overall narrative was fairly mediocre. The characters were def the best part. Currently on the rewatch I am midway through soul society, and even though I do appreciate some of the foreshadowing and even some deeper themes I didn’t notice the first time, the writing and positioning of events and reveals could’ve been done way better. My memories of Ishida vs. Kurotsuchi were way better than what actually happened.

          Third since there's the base zanpakuto then there's shikai and then finally bankai also the gacha game has something called beyond bankai and these are it.
          I'm pretty sure these versions of the soul reapers are designed by kubo but completely non canon for now.

        Kubo is actually a good writer and it shows in some of the short contained stories within Bleach. The problem is he's not meant for the weekly release schedule. The whole thing got away from him when the popularity exploded and he had to make changes on the fly within short windows.

          The witch one shot got a second chapter, and then bleach got a hell chapter which seems like sequel bait about how hell is real and spirits who are over a certain spirit power (Captains) don't reincarnate when they die and go to hell instead.

              When people die on Earth, they become a soul in soul society, and eventually lose their memories of being alive. Spirits are also born in soul society when spirits have children. When a spirit dies (excluding captain level spirits) they reincarnate in on Earth.

        Naruto has just about the same problems as Bleach with it's fights, but I'd say it one-ups Bleach by a few margins in the beginning with it's training sequences, mind game scenarios, the situational fights and character interactions (though annoying at time.), but it falls off HARD during the Mistwhatever Village Mission for being too goddamn long and the dreaded tournament arc (or was it 2 arcs?).
        Shitppoodick is even worse and is just Inuyasha 2.0 levels of Wash, Rinse, Repeat.

          The one thing Naruto has over the other Shonen Jump shows of the time is that the plot actually feels like a continuous story that builds on top of previous events (At least until the whole Kaguya asspull), Dragon Ball, Bleach, One Piece, YuGiOh and the likes are far more episodic and arcs in those barely have any continuity, they just happen randomly one after the other.

              Yes, but even then they could have made an effort to give the following arcs some degree of continuity, the reason the Saiyan-Frieza saga is the most beloved part of Z is because, despite starting on a very random occurrence, all following events follow organically, even the Android-Cell saga connects to the RR Army storyline from early DB, from Buu onwards it's just random asspulls, with Super being particularly guilty of this.

      Again, not similar outside of the orientation, the head is tilted at a different angle and the arms and legs are in completely different positions, the only vague similarity is the torso, which again, is just a generic 3/4 orientation.

      The Kuchiki filler villain at the end of ZR arc ruined it

      I think the Bount arc was the best filler conceptually-speaking given it actually crafted its own lore that expanded on the history of Soul Society and its questionable morality (Which was later explored further in the Hisagi novel), but it was needlessly overstretched; in general, bleach had the best fillers in Pierrot anime, especially compared to the shit Naruto fans had to put up with.

      They really should have just planned the show as a seasonal series so they could give the manga breathing room without having to make such long fillers.

    So, did Kubo drop the ball when developing the captains cast ? People only seem to like kenpaichi of them all.

      What are you talking about byakuya is so popular kubo brought him back after killing him off and giving him a great death since everyone especially fujo started to get mad.
      Toshiro is just as popular and I dislike him.

        How the fuck do people like him ? Does he improve after the SS or something ?

      Kubo dropped the ball when developing the cast period. Even out of the ostensible protagonist squad, only Ichigo and the Ishida get any sort of development or narrative thrust at all. Chad just kind of stops showing up, Inoue gets an interesting ability for like half an arc and then goes back to being the designated healer, the classic death knell for female characters, and Rukia just kinda stops doing much of value, or serves as the Worf of the team.
      The captains are just an extension of that. They show up pretty much explicitly to show off cool bankai designs and then win by slashing the opponent's shoulder or job so the protagonist can show up and clean house.

      Naruto had the same problem of a bloated cast that ultimately does absolutely fucking nothing, and only really like three characters remain relevant, with the designated healer female getting perhaps the least development of all despite being one of the first characters to show up.

        The lion is canon, but it was clearly only there to handwave the whole Ichigo's body lying dead over there thing, Kubo introduced a ton of concepts he then failed to capitalize at all, mod souls being the earliest of them (Also kido, hell and the Hogyoku), at least the Bount filler put them to some degree of use.

      I think that concept doesn't exist anymore. Demon Slayer was huge, but also had a relatively compact 4-year run with zero pop-cultural impact. Maybe Jujutsu Kaisen? Not sure what numbers it pulls, but it's a popular shounen battle series that's been going four a couple years, but that too isn't nearly as massive as the big three were in their day.
      The market is just oversaturated.

      There are no big three anymore. Lots of people don’t realise this was always a manly foreign concept, in Japan OP was always well ahead of the other two.
      Whereas in the US and EU, Naruto and Bleach tended to be more popular, but they were grouped together with OP in the first place because they were all exceptionally popular and signified a new era of mainstream anime appeal in the west.
      It wasn’t just “these are three popular series of it’s time”.

      Urahara was always a ton of fun. He kind of exemplifies the bullshit of the series because his whole thing is pulling revelations out of his ass but his design and demeanor made it work. Him fighting Askin for his final fight was a great end since that dude also ruled. Happy the novel and last chapter confirmed he survived, hope he's out there boning down yoruichi.

        Yoruichi is canonically fucking Soi Fon with a futa cock that Urahara conjured up for her.

        This is my problem with these shows, the status quo can never really change so you just end up getting the same story with different bad guys over and over and over. Any show without an end in mind from the beginning just ends up spinning its wheels forever, no character grows, nothing ever changes, even the most likeable personalities in any of these just become boring and disappointing. That’s my rant and I wish I could still enjoy anime, thank you and goodnight.

        Also,too bad we’ll never get all of full metal panic animated.

          Ironically the opposite happens too. You get stuff like Bleach and Naruto where the main protagonist has almost zero interaction with the girl until the writer decides it's time to end the story and suddenly they fall madly in love despite never seeing each other that way for 10 years.

              For what its worth, that isn't exactly the case at least with Bleach. There's plenty of flirting and whatnot, and things "move forward" when there's a major incident in the show that's resolved, so it isn't like they never interact or anything - its just sort of that "bigger shit is going on" + emotional immaturity often on behalf of the hero that doesn't let him really dive into it full speed until later, but they do consistently "grow together" which is nice.

              You know this reminds me, are there any anime or games that anons can think of that do the opposite, where the main character either already has, or in the first season ends up getting a mature relationship with a significant other which continues throughout the series WITHOUT them breaking up/cheating etc and instead support each other and the trials of the adventure bring them closer? After all this time it reminds me how rare Final Fantasy IV really is in that it does exactly this : Cecil and Rosa started out together, stayed together through everything that happened. An early comment from the very start of the game says that Rosa learned to be the best White Mage possible in order to support Cecil even as he was a Dark Knight! They start together, go through a lot of stuff, and are in the final party together when they go to the moon, and the After Years sequel stars their kid! You just don't see a healthy relationship like that persist over the entire game

          Big tits aren't her only character trait, she's a traditional japanese waifu. She's strong, caring, looks after her friends and deals with her love interest despite him being a manchild unable to adequately return her affections (until late in the show) but keeps on making him lovingly prepared bento/dinner regardless to keep him strong while he's adventuring.

          In Bleach there's an array of big tits, so they can't base characters only upon them alone.
          >Big tits + smoking, drinking one armed blacksmith Oni type.
          >Big tits + possibly materialistic gal (though this is a front) who flaunts her sexuality so much that the commander has to give her to the only kid captain who is resistant to her charms
          >Big tits + delightful brown ninja who, despite being one of the major family heads doesn't like following the rules so she fucks around with her inventor former captain boyfriend.
          >Big tits + mommy dommy physician captain who's hiding a secret side...
          >Big tits + mommy dommy captain's right hand woman, who is socially awkward...

          It goes on and on, and that isn't even the end of the big tits main cast/soul society members, to say nothing for others.

            MHA Vigilante, sort of. The protagonist does have an innately powerful ability, but he uses it poorly to begin with, and the way it progresses feels natural, and comes mostly from experience and mentoring advice, not secret destiny asspulls.
            It's also objectively better than mainline MHA and generally worth a read.

      skip seasons 4 and 5, they're really bad filler. initial ideas were fine, but fuck me it's bad. season 6 is what I'd say has a slow start, but it picks up in 7 and 8. 9 is filler and I have no idea of its quality, but definitely skip it your first time through because it's in the middle of the arrancar arc. 10, 11 and 12 are canon, then 13 is more filler (that people tend to like, but it's still placed in a bad spot) and 14 finally finishes off the arrancar arc. 15 is more filler, then 16 is the currently last canon arc and a lot of people don't like it. it's not bad, but it's also not amazing on the surface level and it honestly does fumble a few things. the final arc that's only just getting an anime starts off stronger than any other arc, but did quickly go down in quality because of kubo's health. he's said he plans on fixing it with the anime, so we'll see
      I've only read the manga, so your mileage may vary with the anime. I did try watching the bount arc though (seasons 4 and 5). really really bad stuff
      if you like consistency you'll probably still think soul society is peak bleach, but if you value high highs you might be like me and place the arrancar arc over it

        >so I might give the anime a watch eventually
        it's good, both the anime and manga end is trash tho and the sequel/reboot isn't all that good either

    "bleach went to shit after the soul society arc" is one of the most midwit takes out there. it really feels like you either watched it while it aired so you were subjected to the bount arc, you quit at the start of the arrancar arc because it legitimately doesn't have a great start, or you're parroting that one e-celeb with that popular video
    also ichigo clearly never had any feelings for orihime and their pairing came out of nowhere. look how much he cares about rukia while he has literally not feelings for orihime

      You know. Till today I have no idea what Ichigo's bankai does. Aside from doing some big slash. And I have no idea how he beat Aizen whose ability was beyond hack with BIGGEST slash.

        No need for skill or finesse if your slash is BIGGEST. You can slash his shoulder so good, nothing can stop you

        It just gives him a speed/power increase, which isn't actually an increase but more of a "take off the weighted training clothes" thing. Its not like the others because its not a bankai. Byakuya even comments the same thing when he first sees it.

        Its eventually revealed that all of his supposed shinigami powers are just fake Quincy bullshit given to him by the Ywach spirit living within him. The spirit says he actively suppressed Ichigo's shinigami powers and essentially made him weaker to protect him from wanting to get into battles and eventually getting hurt. It makes no sense because unrestricted Ichigo easily beats the fuck out of demi god Aizen, but the ridiculous plot is part of the charm.

      I think hueco mundo has some great character moments especially for the captains, who were already the best part about the series. This doesn’t really take into account the power scaling which was goofy tho I really liked Kenpachi’s buff just because it’s the most Kenpachi thing ever. Kurotsuchi was dope too.

    Out of the "Big 3", Bleach had the best original aesthetic and the worst everything else after they get to Soul Society. Naruto was middle of the pack in everything. One Piece is childish fun. HxH is better than these 3 by a long shot. Shaman King has a cooler aesthetic than even Bleach, but the series kinda goes bad after they get on the island.

      One thing HxH genuinely does best out of pretty much every battle shounen is make battles genuinely interesting and victories feel earned. It does go up its own ass later on with way too many internal monologues about strategy, but Gon & group vs. the bomber squad during the Greed Island arc is a fantastic battle. Beating stronger opponents through smart tactics, exploiting their weaknesses, creating circumstances that play to your strengths, and still almost dying in the attempt is great, and it's such an easy way to make victories over more powerful opponents feel well deserved without making the villain look like a fucking chump who lost to a child, or resorting to power of friendship asspulls.

      It used to be a strength of One Piece as well, Luffy vs. Crocodile comes to mind, but then Oda introduced Haki and it's been downhill ever since because you can just imagine a powerup now.

      It would have been great if it didn't waste so many goddamn episodes before getting to the point about finding out the kids' worries and letting them go peacefully.
      What a fucking waste, and the VN only helped solidify how much time they fucking wasted.

        This is why I'm retarded, I didn't mind the beginning when it was "Scary Angel Girl is the enemy, lets do counter Ops." and really enjoyed when it became "Let's give everybody a happy ending, and MC and Angel Girl can fall in love too."
        I am decidedly simple, though I can agree with wishing it got to the back half faster, it's definitely much more novel of a story than the beginning.
