    I'm not saying I full out clap Kubo on the back for his "detailed" panels, I'm just saying it's not a good comparison really.

    He COULD do with a lot less black though. He tries really really hard at writing dialogue.
    They're underwater in the first of those two OP pages, that's why there's only lines drawn in the background instead of landscapes, there's nothing to look at but water. In the second one, it's used to convey surprise. The purpose of the comparison didn't have anything to do with the backgrounds though, I was trying to show how much dialog and action can be fit into one page when a mangaka actually tries. I'm hoping that it might make people more aware that Kubo is milking this manga for all it's worth by dragging out scenes onto as many pages as he possibly can, and giving us the smallest amount of progress and content per chapter that he possibly can, thereby extending the life of his manga and minimising the amount of work he has to do per week.

    Also, are you being sarcastic? I can't tell. I hate Kubo's dialog, I think most of it is crap, and he NEVER puts any detail into backgrounds, if he even bothers to draw them at all.

    I'll keep reading this manga just because I like to finish what I started, and every now and then Kubo has a moment of brilliance, but most of the time I just get really frustrated with this manga.

    it's a common manga thing to use simplified drawings in comedical/light hearted moments, so Kubo's justified here as far as i'm concerned.

    Black panels are simply devices that help him achieve a certain atmosphere and pace.
    That said, the same atmosphere could be achieved with panels that actually show something...

    But such visual laziness doesn't bother me that much, since i know that Bleach will get 10 times more boring when people start fighting once again.

    There was no sarcasm in my post. I was only saying he tries hard at writing dialogue. Some of it is good.

    When we think of his writing though we think of Aizen speech and Ichigo speech. The kind of pseudo philosophical crap that makes us all want to bang our heads on a corner until we forget how to read.
    That is bad writing.

    He, like you said, does have his moments of brilliance though. Some of his dialogue and black panels go really well together. If he didn't put so little into each chapter we probably wouldn't mind it.

    We're aware.

    I love how we all talk about Kubo like we know him personally and can read into his motivations and intentions... =\


    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,

    I'm not the only one who thinks this way. Doing a search on google, I can see that there are heaps of people saying the exact same things I am. I think it's pretty obvious what's happening.

    this chapter feels very nostalgic, like when Shinji offered Ichigo to help control his hollow powers.

    I hoped Ginjou's group is not too much hyped like Kubo did to the Vizards.

    The Vizards were never hyped it was mostly people assuming sh!t just like with Gin.

    We don't need to know Kubo to know his writing style.

    Also, I laughed hard at The Heart. The meme was there but I never saw something putting it together like that.

    If you portray them as badasses and then have them suck...

    Well I guess that just shows how much of a bitch Aizen was but still, the hype was there.
