In Bleach, yeah, it sure is.

They ... um ... talked. Next chapter they'll approach their enemies and make small talk.

Nowhere near as bad imo, the fights so far between the captains and the espada went rather quickly. Granted, none are finished yet, but still Smiley: lol

Speaking of the Bleach anime filler episodes, I just saw the new one, and all I have to say is holy fan service batman! It was a nice light amusing episode that I'm sure Allegory will hate.

366 is out, action action action, no real content, "cliffhanger" ending.

So I was wrong, still nothing really interesting happened. Smiley: motz

The Vizard showed their stuff against a bunch of throw away Menos Grande.

It was neat, but didn't really move the plot along any farther.

The author was trying to sell the Vizard as extremely capable before throwing them in a fight against Aizen. It was a bland, but necessary segment.

Not much happened, yet again.

This week: Something almost happened! Give it another month or two and a sword might even be swung! Boy, I sure can't wait.

To be honest, I don't even know why I'm still reading it at this point.

Because there's plenty of other things to read that are worse than this?

And you just have to know who's going to off Aizen when all is done?

Name me a manga worse than Bleach. I'm serious, I can't think of one. I mean, there must be one, I guess. I just haven't, you know, seen it.

Easy, Ubel Blatt. Oh, and One Piece. But yeah, there are many more.

I don't know either of those manga. Well, I know One Piece exists, I just feel no desire to read it. And lucky me, if it's worse than Bleach. It must be pretty dire. Out of interest, what's its most crippling fault? Is it power creep? Awful characters? Wallbanging plot?

You quoted the wrong part of my post. Unsurprising, really. I mean, if you like Bleach, you can't be very literate.

Nah, but seriously, I disagree. I mean, there's a ton of ****, but Bleach is really bad. I'd say more like 50%.

I actually have to disagree with you, Bleach is no better or worse than about 95% imo.

Ofcourse, blindly quoting statistics is pretty worthless, 60% of all people know that much. Smiley: nod

Ok, let me list some things I think are better than Bleach:

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Bleach (the drink), Iron Maiden (the torture device)

Agreed?

I have a love/hate relationship with the Bleach manga.
Lately, it's mostly hate.

I used to buy the American Shoenen Jump a few years ago & honestly, I didn't mind the One Piece manga. I was also entertained by Yu Yu Hashuko & Naruto.

The reason I enjoyed them, for the most part, was the art was all pretty good.

I have been very disappointed with their Anime adaptations.

No, sorry. TROF was ultimately too boring to be good (that second half of the movie should have been way shorter), never drank Bleach so I can't comment on that and I might agree on that Iron Maiden thing though, fun to see it used!
