    Shonen Jump is for, as its name says, boys. Now, every boy likes to see fighting and more and more of it, and that is why it's like that. Powering up is the best and easiest method to change the way the same characters fight.
    If you don't like the powering up thing, then go read manga that are for girls.

    I rather read Young Kings Our (Berserk and Hellsing) which is fighting and really has no power levels (unless you count Alucard's locks)

    Weren´t you even comparing One Piece with Dragonball Z, though Luffy need 40 volumes for something "new"?

    Anyway, like Jyuu said, read Shoujo, for example something from Rumiko Takahashi.

    [ this is going to be kinda off-topic ]


    almost every shounen manga is compared to DBZ, because the formula is the same:

    - strong enemy
    - get stronger (or show more strength)
    - beat enemy

    lather, rinse and repeat a billion times. its the basis of almost any action/fighting manga/anime/show.

    however, DBZ probably takes the cake in making this formula super-obvious.

    bleach really isn't that bad, the storyline is coherent and the plot twists are surprising and not too over-the-top (except for isshin; still against that plot twist).

    Coming back IT on the current chapters: these are battle times, I don't expect many explainations here. So I don't believe we'll know more on Isshin in a few weeks, but I do expect some other news from Orihime and Chad (are they going to grow in power? If so, how?), from Ishida (is he coming back to action? On which side?), from Aizen (does he agree on Grimmjow's strategy? How will he react?).

    Chad and Orihime will come back upgraded of course! It's obvious!

    (and Ishida will fight against Ichigo again)

    That's it.

    It's normal to compare dbz to bleach since the genre is the same and dbz started and defined the "formula".

    When a new shounen action start it's normal to think

    "Is it similare to db?"
    "Is it innovative?"
    "What parts are better?"
    "Will we have the same level based power progression?"
    and so on...

    It's not a bad thing.
