The truth is... I already stopped watching the anime because of the fillers (episode 64+). I'm desperately waiting for the latest manga. Anime is good when it comes to action scenes but talking about the content of the story, manga rocks!
im only watching the anime, but if you are just going to start with bleach i think you should read the manga first and watch the anime after you han read it
I only watch the anime, because I just can't read the manga. There's too much actions, and I can't tell what happen >_< But I think the art in the anime and manga look pretty much the same...they didn't change the style at all, they look identical to me. Well Bleach got a really high budjet. And the anime got good animation. But the art in the manga, is the best Action Shounen art I seen (Because Love Hina and Ichigo 100% have pretty art to me, but they're romance)
But it never hurts to read the manga and the anime, the filler isn't as bad as long as you haven't seen the manga...like me ^^;;
i dont htink the fillers are the worst things...but i am trying to get my hands on themanga now...just to see the diff, if any, and to make some wallpapers from the manga pics...
also, no fillers in the manga...
deffinitely manga is better. the beauty of the art is somewhat lost in the anime. sometimes the humor is lost too. but on the other hand, you got to see things in motion in anime (though i'm practically screaming while waiting for ichigo to bankai, enough with the all angle sword swinging already!!).
Manga adds more gravity to the situation. When Ichigo goes hollow, there's this whole "o shit o shit shit" attitude" The anime rather attempts to portray this "o shit" feeling with not so "suspensful/o shit music" cause its really hard to find music that makes everyone go "o shit" so they pick something generic and not something which strikes terror into your heart. Black and White rules.
Also, regarding the anime of late, its terrible. The story is weak, the connections are severed, frankly put, it should die.
The character I hate the most is the one I am. Go figure.
