Aside from the pithy title yes this is actually a serious thread. I've noticed that every chapter thread in recent memory has degenerated into discussion about the faults of Bleach and Tite Kubo rather than the actual chapter. I don't see any real problem with that, each chapter brings new and exciting fodder to bitch about. I'm assuming since we're all still reading the manga, we all still like it, and telling you to shut up about how much you "hate" it is kinda silly. So lets just try to have the discussion here, in a more centralized manner, rather than in the chapter threads, which we can leave to actual discussion about... you know... the chapter.

I personally am finding Tite Kubo to be lazy as of late. His character designs are becoming less and less interesting and some are downright outrageously stupid (see. Nnoitora's hood), he had some sick designs for his hollows in the beginning of the manga, and the introduction of the Gotei 13 was a great display of creative genius, characters that were unique and interesting and not very stereotypical. I mean you do remember when we all fell in love with Zaraki Kenpachi. Dude was just cool on levels not seen since God knows when. But now... we have a dull anatagonist in Ulquiorra, a meathead moron in Yammi, a sexist prick in Nnoitora, a carbon fucking copy of Kyouraku in Stark, a carbon fucking copy of Genryuusai in Barragan, a carbon fucking copy of Mayuri in Szyael... i could go on and on. Seriously what the fuck!!!
