Skip to the PURPLE to see the true tragedy of Bleach!!!
On a friend's request I looked into the Bleach manga, and marathon the series. I haven't watched the anime, but am aware it holds extra arcs. Those wont be mentioned outside of this sentence as everyone should understand....they're filler.. To mention quickly what I enjoyed before I discuss what I found abysmal.
Character design is dope - Most powers are interesting - Samurai Grim reapers! Aizen initially, Kenpachi's squad in full
1) Manga issue! Kubo panels...You DO NOT need an entire page of someone's face so we can determine emotion.
2) Fight sequences, I still can't fathom a good 1/3 of what goes on in fights...
3) This series is called Bleach because its used to color the background...so many blank pages. Literally at times reading through i was met with several near blank pages with only several words written at the bottom. How can you possibly make filler pages in manga, I can't even.
4) My friend told me each arc is supposed to be centered/focused mainly on one of Ichigo's friends. i.e NIISAMA( some call her Rukia), KUROSAKI-KUN(Some call her Orihime though), Chad, and glasses. And all they amounted too was. The girls are damsels, Chad is irrelevant, and glasses is betraying us. OH an Ichigo gets a power-up every arc.*****Btw fun fact! google niisama an kurosaki-kun. images of the girls show up ***bad***
5) as fore-mentioned, Ichigo gets power-ups every arc....sometimes mid fight after conquering two seconds real time in not even deep purposeful meditation. But either, forced mental encounters with his Sword or the Hollow within..which subsequently is his sword. Or nearly dying an his inner Hallow just goes ape shit.
6) What is a power scheme?
7) Aizen's forethought is so impresses, he practically wrote Bleach
8) Every character is hyped, but a good 4/5 of them don't meet that hype
9) There isn't a single female worth-a-shit besides arguably Yoruichi.
KUBO WHY, MAD BIAS INC
After getting caught up with the series nothing aside from the blatant miss use of women, made me as upset as Chad. This dude goes 400 plus chapters without explanation for his abilities besides "Oh Ichigo is so powerful his power bled of to those he is constantly around" But only several people whom don't even sit next too him were affected? Whut?... My dude Chad shows up after LEGITIMATELY trying to better himself to be worth-a-shit. Just to get dick casually an made irrelevant until the start of next arc. Even during the arc that supposedly is suppose to be about him. Became Ichigo's return to glory with like several pages of cameo by Chad. Again...DURING HIS OWN ARC... Tite Kubo why
I'm sorry I don't know how to make the picture smaller.
