^ i totally agree w/ the idea of the anime going downhill but just cause of the way they surprise fillers on viewers.. i still watch the anime.. but that bull poopie w/ rukia and the forest of hollows or whatever.. but i like the new music for HM arch.. god don't get me started on the bounto crap.. watching a powered down ichigo = no thanks.. fo sho i still enjoy the manga..
I allready think there have been a thread like this (even concerning the same Arc etc). And since this thread serves no purpose, then attack the manga we all read, close the thread. Don't like it, dont read it. AND don't create threads about you not liking it so much anymore, who cares.
I blame the decrease in anime quality in the decrease in blood. Soul society arc had lots of it, but now there is less and it is now mostly black. (prolly from that girl axing up her family because of anime incident)
I really don't mind fillers as long as it increases character development or has a lot of humor. bounto arc was alright even though it didn't make much sense, its bad to consume living humans but not souls?
As has already been said, the lack of character development has really taken it's toll on the manga. All of the characters are pretty much 2 dimensional, especially the main one. We've gotten NO development besides strength in Ichigo since before the Soul Society arc. It's ridiculous, even Naruto has better character development than Bleach. And then suddenly throwing in a huge interwoven past for the 3 stupid characters that were suddenly introduced was both confusing and aggravating.
I really used to love Bleach, but it's been getting ridiculous lately. At least Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z had character development. Maybe I'm just growing up from my shounen manga days, for all of the old ones that I loved (Bleach, Naruto, Tsubasa[not sure if this is shounen] etc...) have seemed to have gotten worse and worse as of late.
Thanks for creating this thread. I have never on these forums seen anyone talk about how disappointed they have gotten with Bleach lately. Almost everyone loves the Hueco Mundo arc that's going on right now and I never hear complaints about any of the new chapters that come out.
So thanks for making this thread and shedding light on your wildly revolutionary opinions.
I have to agree with this thread. The downhill rush started with the SS arc, and just gets steeper.
Perhaps it's not really the manga at all, but what you expected the manga to become. Tite Kubo has his own plans on where the manga is going to go, and how long it will last, so we can't really complain about it. At least that's how I feel about it. Personally, I still love Bleach, and I'm curious to see what's up with Ichigo's dad being a soul reaper and many other things.
way to go!!

and I have a FAIR amount of questions I want answered (like why does SS have people who are BORN there? And where do their souls go when they die?)
not to mention character developments and relationship developments, I wanna see those too.
somehow, I get the feeling that Aizen will go to hell and take [any other female] with him, and we will see a joyful trip to hell that will be an exact replica of the SS ark, and the HM ark... Ho.ho.ho... -_-
*at 3 am I tend to get pessimistic*
BTW: It is so sick to compare every single shounen to DBZ; it is natural ofcource since DBZ is classic, but nevertheless sickening boring and BANAL for heavens sake! I mean, come on, people, the world doesn't end with DBZ! there are lots of other shounen mangas, some of them even older (and in some ways more significant) than DBZ... -_- mattaku... doitsumo-koitsumo... -_-
I could almost taste the sarcasm.
