Posted by psgels on 2 August 2006 with categories: Bleach



I just wrote a post about this one, only to click the window away due to lack of motivation, spaced-out-ness and that annoying popup of photobucket. In any case, the end is near. At least withing twenty episodes. Ishida was kindof good, while Strawberry was boring. And some other things, but I forgot.

[Update]I’ve decided to stop Blogging Bleach. When I started blogging it, I imagined that I needed some kind of show to bash, but in the end, I’m finding much more joy in blogging about the shows I like. Out of all the shows I’m currently blogging, Bleach is the only one which feels like a chore. I’ll still be watching the series, though I don’t have the motivation at all to keep blogging it.

    Do you have to call him Strawberry??

    Either which way. Just saw it, and I hated that Ishida broke up the fight. He finally changed and there was a good fight going and he stops it. I’ve been waiting for this and he cuts it short. How rude!

    I heard his reason for it and why he helped them go though the gate but I’m still irritated. If I could have hit him like Ichigo I would have. I don’t think he’s going to live until the end of this show. Which is a shame since I liked him when he first showed up.

    Hmm, apparently, not many people can appreciate the joke. Ah well. I like the fact that this fight was short. At least in terms of Bleach. The creators really need to learn what a good fight is. (Hint: Ganju!)

    OH MY! I finally found the THIRD PERSON on the net who think BLEACH SUCKS! Yes, i think so too, don’t worry. I thought everyone likes Bleach, and i seriously, i mean, seriously WONDER WHY. Hmm~

  4. Rene says:

    Oh, and i have to add, i always fell asleep watching the fights in Bleach. Yawn.

  5. psgels psgels says:

    Yeah, I can’t imagine why this is one of the most popular series ever. The first season was hilarious, but after that, things went downhill fast.

  6. Hey, I love Bleach. It’s just that fillers often make Shonen shows unwatchable.

    yup me too finally found someone who hates bleach too ; the beginning was ok, but strawberry and big boobs girl(u noe hu) were gettin kinda irritating; fights are kinda boring, blood splashes out like frm a champagne bottle, fillers suck like hell .
    overall, bleach sucks :)

  8. Dejavooo says:

    I agree, i understand why it is so popular with its flashy looks, action, mystery but i could no continue watching it beyond episode 90 or so…it seemed more like a chore to me too, although in just keeping up with all the action that was no longer interesting to me.

    Anyway, keep on blogging other shows, your blogs are always interesting to read.

    I thought Bleach was kind of good up till the end of the soul society arc, episode 48 I think, but after that it was no good. The story line didn’t go anywhere for a long time and watching it just isn’t worthwhile since there are so many other anime series that much better.

    -raises hand-

    I watched the first part of Bleach. Until it reached the Bountos. Please, don’t let any other anime go in that series. Turned me off. So. Bad. Buuuut, I have heard that the third part of Bleach is really good. After the Bountos part of course. xD

  11. John says:

    Youp, it’s true that the Bounto act was the most boring in all the bleach series.

    but check out the new episodes. If you saw the final fight of Grimmjaw and Ichigo, you’d start watching it again.
    Arrancar act is the best in the series.

    As soon as i found out fillers started (e.g.: the ‘bount’ arc), i stopped watching (yep for 2 seasons long). When i found out the fillers stopped & regular eps started airing, i started watching again.

    Works out great, u should try it.

    I taught myself this while watching Naruto (which has sucky fillers most of the time and if they don’t suck, they really lack story and/or don’t fit into the regular story).

    Conclusion: Bleach as well as Naruto (Shippuuden) (and others i’m sure) are great series, fillers EXCLUDED.

    No tnx 4 the free advice.

  14. TheFish says:

    I really like the series. For me I cannot really see the episodes over the aizen arc though. its pretty terrible. However I do like the new bleach anime openings that have been released.

    Tale of tales could have stood to jump around less and perhaps developed itself a bit more. However I found enough imagination here and about all the stories are roughly on par with each other in terms of quality. I liked the creature effects and I’m a sucker for “not so happily ever after” and Macabre/dispelled takes of fairytales because lets face it, the old tales were probably far far away from the disney versions.

    @Kaiser Well hopefully you’ll get back into comedies sometime soon, there’s been some pretty good comedy manga/animes that have come out in the last six years that I’m dying to recommend.

    @Kaiser As Helghast said it’s the best looking show of the season, but the train and fires are probably metaphors for what it’ll inevitably turn into.

    I think his names Kurusu, but right now he’s the thing thats bothering me about Kabaneri at the moment.

    @Kaiser At first the contrast in Gurashi was interesting, but it’s turned out to be nothing more than a gimmick. I am a Hero probably manages to do the cute/psychedelic-zombie contrast better with the heroine when she was a zombie.

    It might be around 4 years now but in that time span I’ve returned to an intolerance I had for schmaltz drama.

    @Kaiser To be honest I’m not that impressed by anime visuals anymore, the grittiness/desaturation of everything in Kabaneri is no different than the likes of say, Schwarzesmarken, but of course with a bit more care.

    But I also have manga that I really hate with utter disgust, like Yoshinobu’s Deathtopia…

Flying witch – 04

Flying witch again delivers strong material this week and I actually think this is their best episode so far. Mostly because the 2 parts are well connected this week, and our new character Inuka is so natural and fit in like a glove, in addition they have an absurd and whimsical story to boost. I […]

Mayoiga – 05

We now back to the status quo on Mayoiga this week, as the group who left the village decided to come back, and the cliffhanger happened last week was never explained probably. I will say this upfront: this is not a good episode. We don’t learn much after it ends. We have even longer conversations […]

Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress – 03

                There are no brakes on the Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress train even when it goes for a pit stop to pick up some water and say a prayer for the dead. While my fellow writers firmly believe that Koutetsujou no Kabaneri will disintegrate into a trainwreck […]

Bungou Stray Dogs – 04

Bungou Stray Dogs sure never get tired to showcase more new characters every week, and judging from the OP I’m certain that there are more to come. This week there are 3 more new faces and each of them is over the top in their own ways, but that turns out to be for good […]

Joker Game – 04

I am starting to get a little worried about Joker Game. After a very strong start it’s gone down in quality once it revealed it’s episodic format. This episode marks the lowest point of the series so far though I still don’t think of it as bad. Rather than focus on a member of the […]

Re:Zero -Starting Life in Another World – 04

Despite nearly dying our protagonist wakes up out of the loop and now in the mansion of a strange clown like fellow with twin maids. The mansion looks to be Emilia’s home and we not look to be in a new time loop as evidenced by the last scene where it appears that Subaru was […]

Kiznaiver – 03

So this episode was an introduction to our new seventh Kiznaiver who looks to be a roguish shut in with a pendent for self harm. Adding a masochist to a group that shares pain is certainly a dilemma but I wonder just how they plan to make use of him in the plot. Considering that […]

Flying witch – 03

Flying witch has another solid episode this week. Flying week’s formula seems to be half of Makoto the witch getting to know an everyday country life, and other half of Makoto’s witchcrafts and meeting people from that magic world. All of these stories take place mostly in a single location as well, this time are […]

Mayoiga – 04

It’s until this week that I just noticed the rather strange part of the OP of Mayoiga, the sequence was shown in the point of view of Masaki. It starts with her, then introducing the cast and finally ends with her standing alone in the lost village. But when I think about that, only in […]

Schwarzesmarken – 65/100

Schwarzesmarken is a strange title in that it has a setting with fantastic potential yet the story is dampened by a rushed pacing and Missing characterisation. Despite this there are signs of a greater story under the hood and at times that story can shine despite haphazard adaption. The Stasi make for a great villain […]

Boku dake ga Inai Machi – 85/100

In the large reservoir of anime it is surprising just how few titles focus on the concept of time travel. There are of course titles which feature time travel but few that make it the core focus. So here we have Boku Machi or ERASED, a tale about a mangaka time traveling to his childhood […]

Gangsta. – 58/100

Gangsta is an anime with a lot of things going for it. A mature cast, gritty themes, a interesting setting and a trio of main characters who can carry the show. However due to a number of factors it never quite reached its potential. The main trio of characters are unconventional and quite interesting with […]

Gakkou Gurashi! – 80/100

Gakkou is one with a good facade as promotional material would have you believe it was some dime a dozen moe slice of life. I was one who wasn’t fooled by the cute cuddly exterior but I was truly surprised with just how good this anime ended up being. Gakkou is one of those rare […]

Little Witch Academia The Enchanted Parade – 81/100

I wonder when it was that a film being childish became a flaw. As a medium grows it takes steps to aim to mature itself and seek a more intellectual level of presenting entertainment. Animation did it as Anime aimed to explore terrontry that cartoons refuse to explore and video games only recently broke away […]

Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Bladeworks Review – 85/100

For a long time now this adaption has been the dreams of many a Fate fan with many believing it would never come to pass, but now that it is here is it everything that we dreamed? Short answer to this is no, long answer is nearly. I feel this show will have many divided […]

Shirobako Review – 80/100

When you see a harem anime and sigh as the breasts of the female lead jiggle with every step and wind that can flip a skirt it’s easy to forget that somewhere in Japan a group of people worked hard to get that jiggle right and draw each frame of animation. The hardships of the […]

Nerawareta Gakuen Review – 84/100

Let me talk a bit about Ryousuke Nakamura. For a long time, this guy was my hero. He started off as an assistant director to Monster, in my opinion a big reason why that series got such a ridiculously solid adaptation, and then in 2008 he came with the groundbreaking Mouryou no Hako. No TV-series […]

Kick Heart

Okay, so I didn’t want to exit 2013 without having seen Masaaki Yuasa’s Kick Heart. It’s only twelve minutes anyway, and I consider him to be one of the best anime directors out there. The story here is pretty silly and mostly serves as a backdrop, so I mostly want to talk about the nature […]
