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~

    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 :)

    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. Avatar 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.

    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.

    I have just started watching bleach and it has become my favorite anime series I reach this episode and enjoying the reviews of others in my bleach anime bed set.

O Maidens in Your Savage Season – 02 [Es Ee Ecks]

To someone on the outside looking in, the anime medium, or what it has become now, comprises of some incredibly good seasonal shows that never become truly great; behind these, we have a slew of solid ones followed by a sea of mediocrity. And all this covers a fifty feet deep pile of crap that […]

Kanata no Astra – 02 [Wilderness]

Welcome to the first week of Kanata no Astra, aka Astra Lost in Space in English localization. The double-length premiere remains a flawed but decent introduction for me, and this sophomore further underlines the strengths, as well as the potential weaknesses of this show going forward. For instance, many of the anime’s changes baffled me. […]

Another week, the start of another arc in Kimetsu no Yaiba. This week our trio start to grow, we meet some new villains and some old characters make a return. Hope your not afraid of spiders, cause we have whole host to get through. Lets go! As far as production goes, I think this was […]

Fire Force – 2 [The Heart of a Fire Soldier]

Welcome to Fire Force! I’m your infernal host for the season (and hopefully many more), Amun. Fire Force kicks off as the highly anticipated sophomore work of Atsushi Ohkubo (known for Soul Eater).

Kimetsu no Yaiba – 14 [The House with the Wisteria Family Crest]

Welcome to another week of Kimetsu no Yaiba. This week we take a break as our trio get to know each other, have some dinner and meet best sister Nezuko. Let’s get into it! Right off the bat, I am rather split on this episode. Both in terms of production/animation and the actual narrative of […]

Kimetsu no Yaiba – 13 [Something More Important Than Life]

Another week, another episode of Kimetsu no Yaiba, though not a great one. Zenitsu gets less annoying, and the fights are fun, but the pacing is off and the narrative is questionable. That said, let’s get into some details and jump in! Starting off, like always, production. Animation wise, Yaiba was fine. The rotating room […]

Mix – 12/13 [Aren’t You Taking Him Lightly?/Because We’re Brothers]

I missed last week’s post due to a temporary Hearthstone addiction, so here’s a doubleheader for you. These episodes stepped away from the show’s recent focus on romance and character building, opting to broaden the cast in preparation for the East Tokyo summer tournament. Episode 13 actually covers the opening innings of Meisei’s first game, […]

In an era of the mundane, where every series is the same moe blob, the weird sticks out. Even the most mediocre series can get attention just by being weird.

Watching it till the end, I have to tip my hat […]

Mob Psycho 100 S2 Anime Review – 87/100

Upon finishing this series, the only question on my mind was how many animators did Bones sacrifice on ONE’s altar to achieve this.

ONE has also authored the critically acclaimed One Punch […]
