Thats Shounen manga for ya. Childish ideals, characters and inconsistent plots. Sad thing is OP's plot has to be one of the simplest there is but the mangaka is such a fricken GENIUS. Makes you keep coming back for more. Fricken oda blue balls us every week. He has that kinda power. I would stop reading Bleach and Naruto if i wasn't already in to deep.
Tite's prob under so much pressure cause he has to compete with naruto and OP. Tough acts to follow.
