When will the meme that Bleach is shit stop?

Kubo is a decent writer. The plot has become unpredictable unlike One piss or fairy bore. He's also the most talented shonen artist out there. Look at that pic case in point.

Something being unpredictable doesn't make it good. When you get out of your teens you may come to realize this. Even so One piece isn't predictable, sure they have their journey planned out and all that, but it's the journey that counts and that's completely unpredictable

Kubo's a good writer
Can draw expressions and give his manga great emotional impact through gestures and tension
But holy shit is the pacing bad, and I feel like he could do a lot better if he didn't make a huge number characters dull
Ishida, Chad are just shells of their former selves
Ichigo became extremely bland personality wiseafter the Fullbringer arc
And many more

its formulaic as fuck. One Island, generally one villain that luffy beats and his comrades beat the other underlings in order.

They also never make any real sacrifice. Magic bandages reset every arcs.

There's like a few Islands where they don't do that and then it's just a bunch of incoherent lore dumps.

Jean Stampe and Maurice Vertongen, veterans of World War I, founded a flying school at Deurne in 1923.[9] Their research into the training aircraft then available led them to believe that the British-built Central Centaur IV was the best choice for their school.[5] When they discovered that the Centaur IV had just ceased production, their friend, Maurice Boel, introduced them to engineer Alfred Renard, whom Stampe and Vertongen contracted to design a similar aircraft that could be built cheaply and locally.[5] Renard's response was a conventional two-bay biplane with unstaggered wings of equal span.[10] Power was provided by a radial engine in the nose.[10] The student pilot and instructor sat in tandem in a single, open cockpit[10] and communicated through a speaking tube.[11] The main units of the fixed undercarriage shared a common axle, and the tail was supported by a skid.[10] Construction was of wood throughout, braced with wire and covered in fabric,[8] and stressed to withstand rough treatment by student pilots.[12][13] To reduce costs, many parts were interchangeable, including the struts, longerons, undercarriage legs,[13] and even the upper and lower wings.[12] Initial construction of the prototype commenced in a dance hall in Evere[2][8] and was completed in the hangar of the Administration de l'Aéronautique[2] (the Belgian Aviation Administration) on 23 April 1923,.[13] The aircraft was registered O-BOEL in honour of the friend who introduced Renard to Stampe and Vertongen.[2][13] After the prototype had been tested, King Albert I paid a royal visit to Stampe et Vertongen and asked for a joy ride over Antwerp in it.[8]

its formulaic as fuck. One Island, generally one villain that luffy beats and his comrades beat the other underlings in order.

Shoen as a genre is formulaic as fuck, it's the variation that counts. Bleach is also guilty of of being formulaic as hell. Both are full of tropes. The difference between One piece and Bleach is that kubo pulls plot twists out of his ass while Oda plans ahed and purposefully leaves clues for more advanced readers.

I read bleach for like 6 years and gave up, the plot is planned like absolute garbage, the world building is bad and the world of bleach in general feels very small. Reading from the first chapter to the current ones makes it really obvious that kubo didn't intend for the series to go on for very long.

Why do we only know about 2 great shinigami families when there's supposed to be 4? why does kido exists if it's so underused in favor of zanpakuto? why the fuck is there a guy with the power to forge zanpakuto? wasnt it established early on that zanpakutos are supposed to come from a shinigamis soul and able to repair themselves if their wielder is alive? What was the point of the whole fullbringer arc? what is the point of Sado existing? what about tatsuki? why was there so many side characters that ended up never being relevant?

If anything, bleach does NOTHING but contradict itself.

I would have argued that bleach overall story was better but it didn't stop at Aizen being defeated or earlier. They're very close to each other at this point, but they're shit in their own special ways. Kubo better write up something actually good otherwise then it will be a little more clear if One Piss is better or not.
The One Piece formula is so fucking blatant though so they both need to prove themselves.

Article by Dr. Otto F. von Feigenblatt (MA, PhD, FRAS, FRAI, GCEG)
http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=2195562

How Bleach is one of the series that is leading the way from Japanese Exceptionalism to Globalism and Hybridity.
http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=2195562

The bleach portion.

"The present study explores cultural representations in three prominent examples of contemporary Japanese animation, NarutoShippuden, Bleach, and Onigamiden. Lingering traces of Japanese exceptionalism (Nihonjinron) are still present in contemporary Japanese animation such as in the animated movie, Onigamiden.
On the other hand two of the most popular animated series, Naruto Shippuden and Bleach, fit a cultural model characterized by hybridity and globalism.

In terms of demographics, Bleach appeals to a narrower international audience than Naruto due to the higher complexity of its plot as well as due to the religious aspects of the story

Bleach is a very good example of the crosscurrents of Japanese cultural politics due to its dual nature, as an essentially Japanese product while at the same time incorporating global cultural elements.

The series borrows heavily from foreign cultural traditions such as Christianity and Caribbean Santeria, inter alia.
Spanish is favored as the second most prevalent language in spiritual vocabulary.

The Quincy are clearly inspired by the Christian Orders of Knighthood such as the Sovereign Order of Malta and the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulcher whose influence is shown in terms of the uniform worn by the Quincy as well as by the symbolism of the cross.
Nevertheless it is interesting that Ishida is clearly of Japanese ethnicity and notwithstanding this factor his culture and legacy is European.

Samuel Diaz
Samuel Diaz

Bleach presents war as an undesirable cyclical event with the potential to bring out the best and the worst in people.
Bleach’s depiction of war is not as pacifist and totalizing as the one that became
prevalent in Japan during the post-war period.
War can be justified in Bleach if it waged in order to protect
important principles and values. In addition to that War is a great opportunity to show bravery and courage.

Bleach is an example of hybridity in Japan’s public sphere.
The series does not present a harmonious integration of cultural elements leading to an integrated and assimilated Japanese culture but rather offers a cacophony of cultural traits in a constant state of flux.
This is shown with a constant emphasis on time and the possibility of change.

Conclusion-
Onigamiden, Naruto, and Bleach are some of the most successful examples of contemporary Japanese animation.
Moreover, they represent ideal types in the Weberian sense in terms of cultural worldviews.
Onigamiden shows the strongest traces of Nihonjinron while Naruto and Bleach display characteristics of both hybridity and globalism."

I defended Bleach as being good for a really long time. I even went as far as to say the Fullbring arc was good and thats something i truly believe.

Bleach is still a million times better than Fairy Tail though

Bentley Foster

Shut the fuck up, the Fullbring arc was full retarded. You can't even compare Bleach to One Piece, Bleach may have had its moments, but One Piece has always been the better of the two. Comparing Bleach to Naruto is much more genuine, and from there you can compare Naruto and One Piece. The three are ever-linked, but Bleach and One Piece are an echelon apart.

"I am bad guy "X", heres my broken power that makes me essentially unbeatable."
"I am shinigami "Y", my bankai just so happens to have a gimmick that counters your broken ability."
*Y defeats X
X comes back to life with a crazy power up.
"Nani?????"
"Hahaha my broken power was actually only my FIRST broken power. I have another broken power that counters YOUR broken power."
*X is about to defeat Y when suddenly...
"I am shinigami/arrancar character Z and I happen to have a broken ability that counters your other broken ability!"
*Z and Y barely defeat X.
"How can this be?????"
"I leave....the rest...to you Ichigo....."

The fuck you on about? There was a distinct (and ignorable) minority that liked the slice of life shit of the first few chapters of Bleach. However, the majority of favor for Bleach I have seen has been for the Soul Society arc itself. The Fullbring arc was just nonsensical, really.

Alexander Ward
Alexander Ward

It's existentialism of the fan base at its finest, all Kubo has done is taken a concept with a decent load of history and slapped it into his story haphazardly, with the resolutions to his mysteries thinly planned out for future reference. In order to hide the lack of themes & substance, he overall emphasizes the style & mannerism much like Western comics do as a pinnacle focus.

Bleach story is fleshed out, but it's the furthest thing from complex, it was never introduced until he had too, and was never eluded too because he works out on fleshing out the base line a month before it hits the ink.

Kubo has struggled to keep his series alive, and still manages it, but it's the farthest thing from the best that is being offered, he falls onto what old authors use in monthly mangas letting the art buy him time.
As long as he introduces an aspect to his story with a lot of history while never straying from the situation, he'll survive for a long time.

Kubo is better than say Hata for example, but look at Hayate no Gotoku now, I can see Kubo wanting the same thing, a series that doesn't finish when it should.

No really, no. A lot of quincy stuff feels shoehorned in to the point that I would never believe him even if he insisted this was planned. Fullbringer ARC could be cut out entirely and the plot would basically be the same. He has a lot of unnecessary "blubber" in his work, far more than most WSJ series. Sure, it's fine if you like that, but don't speak for all of us here.

That isn't to say that shit like One Piece or Naruto was any better, it was still the same mediocre trash that Bleach was, Bleach just managed to have some characters that I liked.

Lets be real, this ain't a meme, Bleach is shit. Chapter's like this week were nothing happens and seem to negate previous chapters content are far too common in this series. And you just can't call it good. Kubo is a decent artist but he really shouldn't be left alone to write something without someone else to keep him focused and concise.

Forgetting its other faults, the biggest problem with Bleach is its failure to build and deliver hype. Which is arguably the most important thing for a shounen manga.

Certain things in Bleach get hyped up but the result is almost always disappointing. Vizards, enough said. Espadas failing to defeat anyone after the entirety of Mexico building them up. Aizen getting punked by something that Ichigo pulled out of his ass. Kenpachi jobbing worse than ever despite having his potential unlocked and acquiring bankai, making Unohara's sacrifice seem completely pointless. There's more but you get the idea.

Someone who has to rely on twists to the level Kubo does is no better than a Shyamalan of the manga world

Cold reading is a set of techniques used by mentalists, psychics, fortune-tellers, mediums and illusionists to imply that the reader knows much more about the person than the reader actually does.
One of the most crucial elements of a convincing cold reading is a subject eager to make connections or reinterpret vague statements in any way that will help the reader appear to make specific predictions or intuitions. While the reader will do most of the talking, it is the subject who provides the meaning.

The sheer volume of lying and authoriative figures 'being incorrect/not knowing it all' is both good and bad. It creates mystery but when over used to can feel retcon/asspull.

The lore is great, the battles/powers are shit.

I actually think Kubo's generally been pretty good about that. Except Urahara. Why he didn't use his Bankai against Aizen is beyond me.

Jackson Harris

Why he didn't use his Bankai against Aizen is beyond me.
Or why Isshin didn't go bankai as he fought Aizen and the two "reached the limits of their shinigami powers" somehow without bankai.
Actually, this can go on all day.

Unpredictable in a way that there is a fuckton of stuff to be explained, for example who is the real bad guys, it doesn't look like quincies are the villains.

Not new. SS has always been a weird place. OBEY THE LAW old man allowing all manner of horrible shit to go down instead of soloing it himself. Very early revelation of horrible subordinates (mayuri) etc. They are fucked up and quite happily killed some humans. We're not told much about the universes rules except that shinigami are meant to be human souls who gained a bit of magic who go around banishing evil ghosts. And slowly you notice they are a bit fucked up with their ruling system. Questions emerge about the correct (real) soul cycle, which we still haven't got.

Luis Long

SLICE THE FUCKING HEAD OFF WHEN YOU DO YOUR 'IM SO FAST MOVE' instead of slicing their shoulder/back. Just fucking one shot them. But at this point in the series the one shot only makes them stronger. Or hell start off with your bankai, if that fails, run.

Dominic Walker

Which in one characters case wasn't that problematic, nanao just waltz in. I noticed shit way back during FKT as well, everyone is a complacent asshole, shit could have been solved many different ways without drawing things out. But that's not battle shounen formula and you'd be mad and confused if character just one shot things without info dumping their skillset.

Come on user, you can't really be serious. Your telling me you enjoy the clusterfuck of a "plot". Bleach should've ended a while ago, these new villains are some of the worst examples of power creep that I have ever read. Kubo can draw and he has some delicious girls, but thats really all I can compliment him on.

Matthew Cox
Matthew Cox

Kubo is a decent writer. The plot has become unpredictable unlike One piss
It doesn't matter that something is "unpredictable" if you don't give a fuck about it.
They could reveal that Urahara was actually a purple flamingo from Mars on a mission to harvest all of Earth's pineal glands and it wouldn't matter one fucking iota.

Yes, Kubo can cerate "unpredictable" outcomes, but the problem is that he does it so relentlessly and so randomly that you just stop caring about anybody. The recent fight against Gerard is a perfect analogy: it's been such a long-stretched cycle of "enemy is much stronger than anybody thought -> new power is revealed to bring him down -> it looks like he succumbs to it -> NOT REALLY!" that whatever they'll use to actually defeat him will feel completely hollow and arbitrary.

After a while you stop feeling anything about the whole plot, because you are in a constant state of alert for the next "WHAT GAVE YOU THE IMPRESSION THAT X", so even if something ISN'T a twist you end up not appreciating it.

Meanwhile, the reveal that despite all hints to the contrary the Mink tribe was actually hiding Raizo even though it could have cost them their extinction still had some emotional weight behind it, because you didn't just spend fifty chapters (and the rest of the series) going from one table-flipping shocking twist to the next. THIS is "unpredictable".

Look man I've been reading one piece for like a decade now and you know what? It really was never that great, if I leave my personal feelings out of this it is really sub par. That isn't to say that shit like Bleach or Naruto was any better, it was still the same mediocre trash that One Piece was, One Piece just managed to have some characters that I liked.

Lets be real, this ain't a meme, One Piece is shit. Chapter's like this week were nothing happens and seem to negate previous chapters content are far too common in this series. And you just can't call it good. Oda is a decent artist but he really shouldn't be left alone to write something without someone else to keep him focused and concise.

Generally every battle manga is going to end up as a 'narrative' fight because doing regular back and forth fighting with still pictures is incredibly hard and usually ineffective. So most of the time it takes the form of
I use my powers to do this
I counter by doing this
I try this other thing
It works, i win

Julian Richardson

That can work if you keep the tension up and make it interesting/dynamic, but Kubo just does it to such extremes that it's basically people pressing "I win" buttons until one of them runs out of buttons, and that's just dull.

Come to think of it, the fullbringers use conceptual abilities rather than pure strength so they'd mostly do well against Gerard.

Halibel was a tres espada who was one of the most complex and well rounded arrancar amongst a sea of chaotic evils who was able to hold her own against two hollowfied ex lieutenants and a captain effortlessly, but had a hypersexualized resurrection, was defeated by her own boss for absolutely no reason aside from shock value and an inability to fit her character into the final arc, and has been defeated by the Quincy offscreen and left in prison without an update for years. But Orihime is the first female character in Bleach that comes to your mind when you think of wasted potential.

Juan Howard
Juan Howard

Wasn't that Aizen's plan to announce that to everyone including Orihime and show her the hogyoku? It gave her a motivation to stay in HM and for Arrancar to use her powers.

After nothing happened I just assumed it was a bait line. If Aizen never said that Orihime would have never gotten the confidence to make a plan to reject the hogyoku.

She has almost no offensive capabilities. Yammy is a bad match up for her.
She couldn't shield for shit against Ulquiorra.
She did fairly well, until she started to lose her mind.
Couldn't heal Ichigo's chest hole.
She was completely mind fucked for the duration of the fight.
Couldn't heal SK.
She didn't use the correct shield when she tried to heal the SK. Some people speculate that the SK didn't want to be healed.

You're also forgetting how she's brought people back to life on multiple occasions.

Ryder Fisher

no offensive capabilities
Her power could destroy anything in one shot, but since she's not a killer, she can only use it for healing.

Jacob Allen

Right, and she never will. That's why it's useless to think of her with offensive capabilities.

No offense, but out of all the characters people always make excuses for Orihime.

Soul King interfering
No, she called the wrong shield and her faeries obeyed

Her faeries didn't want to heal him
This is an insult to Orihime, her faeries respect her enough to obey her command

The likely reason is that she probably thought the lower half of the Soul King would have shattered if it hit the ground so she tried to shield its fall.

She only had enough time to call out one spell and she chose wrong.

Lincoln Watson

Why? It makes it feel so pointless. These characters we know are among the strongest are whipping out trump cards against some unimportant enemy and are all failing.

It's padding at the expense of long-time cast members. Especially since you know someone is just gonna come around and just happen to have a perfect ability that exploits a loophole in his powers. Shit, it'll probably be Mayuri again.

It's a bad sign if the people you're not meant to be rooting for are the ones your readers are rooting for.
Also, that scientist line Urahara gave to Askin was so fucking cringeworthy.

I don't think he was bullshitting about her power - his statement was correct.

He just didn't really care about it as much as SS thought he did, that was the bait.

Kubo specifically mentioned Yhwach and Haschwalth, when talking about villains and enemies not being the same thing.
Either the Sternritter are villains, in other words evil, but they are not the enemy, against whom Ichigo must must fight against. Like Grimmjow, Aizen, Loly, Bazz-B, Giselle and Mayuri are all "villains", but they don't oppose him and are on his side for one reason or another.

Or the Sternritter are enemies, just an opposing force, who are fighting for what they think is the greater good. In that case someone else may be the the true villain or another enemy may oppose Ichigo. If it's this case something will happen, that will cease the conflict eventually, since this is Shonen. I could imagine that the Shinigami will become enemies in the future. I don't if that will actually happen, but it wouldn't be entirely left-field. The hints are there.

Daniel Powell

we got hints at at kisuke's motivation, Askin as great as he is, was still only just around for yourichi and kisuke to show off a few new tricks

Well if Kubo remembers that Yushiro is not inside the Giftball, than he's still not dead. Nel might save him, because that could be the only way for the Giftball to decrease. The closer he is to death, the more lethal it becomes. The further away he is, the less lethal it becomes.

Jack Powell

I never liked Bleach, and I never understood why it got so popular. Even the highly praised Soul Society Arc was boring to me. Maybe it's because, unlike the other two popular battle shonen I read (Naruto and One Piece), I only picked it up when I was 18, well past the age when I swallowed battle shonens antics like cum flavoured cupcakes. In fact, my favourite part was the initial SoL arc.

it feels like we're getting less substance as the chapters pass though, like with the Gerard fight, we got some very small development for Kenpatchi and Yuchriu, but after that it was just Toshiro's bankai's new trick

Xavier Myers
Xavier Myers

Urahara's comment regarding Rukia might be relevant. His Bankai could also hint at a potential desire to de- and reconstruct reality to make it better. At least it is a possibility. The fissure in Askin's arm also looked like the fissure Hiyori saw at the begining of this arc. Urahara said those came to be because the Quincy fucked with the balance, but Hiyori smelled Shinigami. Shouldn't she have smelled Quincy? Unless Urahara lied for some reason. And creating those fissures is totally something his Bankai could do.

She wasn't even aware of this fact during the soul society arc. I wonder when she found out?

Anthony Torres

Bleach does not stand out in any way from them, except maybe from the drawings, but even those are pretty decent in Naruto and One Piece, and honestly good drawings alone are not enough to make me appreciate a series. But the real thing is, it's all the same shit in the end. I just happened to be introduced to Naruto and One piece when I was in grade school, and nostalgia still makes them enjoyable to me (but definetely not as much as they used to be).

Orihime would have healed them if she saw them. I'm assuming the bodies were moved.

Evan Russell

No, but this arc has seven days full of conflict and it's very unlikely that it will end with all the Sternritter dead. That afro dude is also alive but didn't come back.And Orihime might have healed Buzz-B off-screen, like Urahara did with Grimmjow. They just went through the gate, so we'll have to see if she heals the other two. Though it's not like Orihime is needed for that, since Giselle could do that too.

I think the main problem with the latter part of this arc is that there aren't nearly enough bad guys to fight. In order to compensate, the last few remaining enemies need to have asspulls in order to defeat at least some of the good guys. I hope the RG serves Yhwach, that would make it a little better.

Nolan Gray

Well, it's possible. Her entire character has been based around two things.
1. Her love for Ichigo
2. Her desire to protect Ichigo, she does not want to be the one protected
In the last chapter, we really see how much that means to Orihime. Since her powers are based on her will power, I really think there's a decent chance for her to actually do something.

But we're just in the middle of the final arc. It wouldn't make much sense to have the rest of the Quincy arc with just three Sternritter. And some of the Sternritter are more popular than the Arrancar. Giselle, Haschwalth, Äs Nödt and Bambietta seem to be more popular than most of the Arrancar. Of course this excludes Ulquiorra, Grimmjow and Nnoitra.

The number of enemies will most likely increase one way or the other. And I don't think that increase will be just the five members of Squad Zero. I'm more worried that the number is increased in a bad way.

Colton Wilson
Colton Wilson

The human world part of the Blood War arc is coming up too.
This is Kubo's last chance to give the human side characters some development.

Jonathan Cooper
Jonathan Cooper

That Kubo would increase the number of enemies in a way, that makes this arc instead of better. For example, if Yhwach would just resurrect all the Shinigami and Quincy killed 1000 years ago. We would have another batch of enemies, who will just get a minimum of characterization. Kubo has yet to really develope most of the Sternritter. While some are good characters, they all can benefit from more development. Kubo should focus on the Sternritter we already know, instead of new enemies. Not to mention that the pacing would become even worse. Another bad way would be just creating more of these shadow creatures.

Another option would be Yhwach resurrecting the dead Sternritter. That could become good, if Kubo choses to develope them further, instead of just rehashing the second invasion. And while I would like to see more of Äs Nödt, I could do without Driscoll or Pepe. Pacing would still be aweful.

A good option could be the Shinigami becoming enemies. Either because they have to bow down to Yhwach or because they and Ichigo have conflicting ideas about the afterlife and the Soul King. That way we would have developed characters on both sides. The conflict would become rather gray and more unpredictable. It could also give the surviving Sternritter the opportunity to become allies and the pacing could become better. Kubo wouldn't have to introduce new characters, but would instead divide the number of allies Ichigo has and pitch them against each other.

Blake Evans
Blake Evans

I don't think Kubo is going to introduce a new group of enemies this late in the arc, which would be pretty redundant unless they were all Schultzstaffel tier. Most anons have been guessing the Royal Guard would end up under Yhwachs control but even that is a bit doubtful. My guess is the remaining Soldat will be fodder for subjugating the human world and no other enemies will be introduced.

Tyler Gonzalez

In the latest interview Kubo did actually say that there are many fights, he has yet to draw and that "everyone" will eventually appear. In other words, there will be many battles in the future and most of the missing characters will apear. So one unless the Soldat suddenly become stronger, the Shinigami turning into enemies does sound like the only valid and good option. I mean most of the Shinigami finished their development, so using them as enemies wouldn't hurt and could give other characters more focus.

Benjamin Smith

Isshin, Ryuken, Kukakku, Tessai, Machiro most of the Arrancars and Aizen didn't do much either. Especially Ginjou, Isshin, Ryuken and Kukaku could reveal alot of plot and take this arc into another direction. But the more important thing is that there will be many more fights and thus the number of enemies will increase in some way.

Carter Russell

I think you're being a bit too optimistic here, I doubt we'll see any of them fight except for in a supporting role against Yhwach.
