^that ninja >>> naruto
naruto and bleach always seems to be on opposite ends of the exciting scale:
naruto starts off good (haku, genin exams), then got boring for awhile (fights after the timeskip were boring as hell), and now it's getting good again (akatsuki, bijuu).
bleach starts off bad (generic content), gets interesting (aizen arc), and now it's starting to suck again (hueco mundo = ss arc).
and now the quincy is fighting some weird goth girl.
Ironically, I liked Pre-SS Arc Bleach.
The main reason I like Naruto more than Bleach is because it being nearly twice as long as Bleach(anime) had very good story arcs(the ones before the fillers of course). In Bleach, the first 17 episodes suck like hell. Then the story picks up and just as it was getting interesting at around episode 63 the fillers started. So for me only 45 episodes were worth watching.
Now manga wise, Bleach's storyline picked up brilliantly during the Arrancar arc but even then there were dragged out fights. As for the current arc, I read it only for the sake that the first page has the word 'Bleach' written on it.
Don't know about you guys but I did find all the battles in Bleach a bit dragged. I didn't find the story and characterization impressive either(Matsumoto and Orihime never meet, Hitsugaya never meets Ichigo yet they start behaving as if theyd known each other for years when they arrive in Karakura town). However, the action scenes are done brilliantly and Bleach makes up with it as well as the brilliant OSTs and animation. IMO, Bleach is better as an anime. I seriously hope that this arc ends soon and this cheesy faced girl gets pwned in the next chapter....no wait then there'll probably be ANOTHER of these battles with Chad....
wtf, if bleach battles are drag, then naruto is super dragged.I did find all the battles in Bleach a bit dragged.
My problem with Naruto has always been the EMOs and the way the character Naruto was pictured(cliché idiot main charac. who has moments of brilliance). And besides that i don't have much problems with the manga. As for the Anime i hate the fillers.
I really ain't feelin' bleach right now, It start it out as a great manga, great storyline, great charac. dev., great plot. It was a perfect manga and we all no things are never perfect.
Problems with Bleach:
-Peaked too early
-Its starting too look like dragonBallZ, i know people don't like the comparison but it's true.
-Everybody seems to be able to do Shunpo now just like how you'd saw people in DBZ fighting so fast only a few could follow it,
-Bankai is the norm much like how SSJ factor,
-The charcters and situations are a bit different but It's just like DBZ, an arc-2-arc manga, there is no main Goal like how Naruto wants to be HOkage or Luffy wants to be Pirate king. Ichigo's goal is just like Goku's: To protect my friends, the earth...etc.. how lame.
i still read Bleach but I don't impatiently wait for the next issue to come out.

I jacked it!!!
when did this turn into a therapy session of "why we dont think bleach is cool anymore"??? if it annoys you stop reading it. complaining about it but conceding youre still going to read it is like spam.
I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

Ban Kai the norm? Who has it that didn't before Ichigo, the main character and Renji, who's been practicing for years, got it?
did anyone notice that espda aizen was talking to, waht was he scared about ( Aizen-sama knowing about his experiments), looks like the Espda are trying to have their own agendas, but it hard to keep secrets when someone uber strong watching everything at all times!
im still a fan of Bleach, i dont really care if ppl complain about the direction its going, like others have said " if u dont like it, dont read it"! GG!
Back ontopic, about that Espada Aizen was talking to, it seems that the 'research' factor once again comes into play. I think Mayuri's research and this guy's, they'll be real useful for something in future.
