Bleach getting to Narutoish? (tv version)
I love bleach but I've felt like they have been dragging the episodes out so much lately. The intro spends like half the episode on a recap and then they close on the important part. I will say it looks like its getting better the last few episodes especially. But still im getting nervous. If you have havent seen the last few episodes then check out Anime My love for direct downloads of the latest episodes. The manga version may be different but i havent checked it out.
Anyone agree or am i just crazy? (sorry if this is a repost)
The phrase "may be different" is one hell of an understatement. Rest assured, you're watching a wall of filler bathed in non-canon abuse of canon characters and episode-eating recaps while the show desperately tries to avoid catching up with the manga and having to have yet another complete arc of filler.

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

i watched bleach up to the fillers. the anime is incredibly faithful to the manga from what i've seen, and some parts are actually better (hitsugaya vs aizen). plus the OP/ED are pretty stylish. so yes, the anime is/was actually pretty good.
You want strange?
The English dub appears to be getting better.
Other than the "I-was-walking-down-the-street-and-suddenly-Rangiku-popped-up-and-so-did-my zan...pak...to...-then-Aizen-was-all-like *trails off*" - effect (copywrite - Terasiel?) the Tousen versus Kenpachi fight was very, very accurate to the Japanese one.
Now if only they'd stop calling Hinamori "Momo" and give Kenpachi a more fitting voice.
i think bleach always does a good job in its anime.. and it definately is keeping up with the manga better then naruto does.. only time bleach ever strays from the manga is when they do shit with the 3 mod souls from the bounto arc.. plus if u read the manga where they are in the anime.. the next few episodes are going to start to be slow anyways.. cause now we got the 14 manga chapter long fight between grimmjow and ichigo.. so im sure it'll seem slow but thats how it was in the manga at that point..
^Seconded. Once the bount arc hit the series went down the irrecoverable filler path. And now (2 months ago for me) the series is dragging to prevent from catching up to the manga.

i think that bleach is much better than naruto because even the fillers have good histories
some people only watch the anime..

Okay, there's a difference between bias and bullshit. First of all, Naruto has been on a straight course with obvious direction for years. There has never been a "where are we going next?" moment since Haku came around. Secondly, did you see the last three chapters of Bleach? (the spoilers for this one, as well) Bleach has finally came back full circle ahead of time in order to stop all the pointless battles and even gave a climactic explanation as to why Aizen just sat there and waited all that time.
