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.

    @Wyatt: I wouldn’t personally get off on it particularly either but if I was to be completely honest while I could tell you I thought/knew it was wrong/messed/etc etc it wouldn’t change either way that my response on an emotional level amounts to little more than feeling indifferent/un-affected/unphased.

    Finally got round to rewatching Yuasa’s Kemonozume series. This was something I dropped nearly halfway through when I was a teenager because I think I was at a stage where I couldn’t appreciate it, but on a rewatch I think very very highly of it and am genuine impressed with/by it, has pretty much all I’d want in an anime series.

    F’ing hell, now this is a form of hentai I am not okay with. I love gore, & I don’t mind loli, but put those two together and I have an issue. http://pururin.com/gallery/17789/0210564801.html
    As messed up as I am, at least I don’t get off to this, lol.

    That Aria follow up might be anime original content, having enjoyed the manga years ago, I’m up for more.
    I don’t really know if I care about Ks second season or not I probably won’t watch it.

Khights of Sidonia S2 – 7

Moral of the story, if you build a death star planet destroying ray then you better make sure that it’s not sentient. Though it seems that the dangers of using such weaponry are lost on Kobayashi as even one wiping out the testing facility and a hefty number of people isn’t enough of a red […]

Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Bladeworks – 20

This episode wasn’t quite what I expected. It is true that I didn’t get the big fight I was looking for, though there were clashes going on. However this still was a very good episode. So on the matters of Kirei, Rin, Lancer and Shinji it was all done perfectly. Well there was this weird […]

Knights of Sidonia S2 – 3-6

So far the focus has been pretty heavily on Tsumugi, the chimera. Who is strangely moefied. Its really odd to see what is essentially a giant  tentacled monster display the characteristics of a innocent cutsy little girl. Still she is to me one of the better characters of the show. Untainted by the negative aspects […]

Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Bladeworks – 19

Oh my god, I can’t believe that Archer is the future Shirou Emiya!….said no one who watched this episode. But yes the cat is out of the bag. Archer is Shirou turned cynical and jaded after playing executioner for a couple of decades. There was a small bit showing how he contracted with the world […]

Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Bladeworks – 18

Well here it is. The name drop. The very thing the route is called after. And its….its…kinda bad. Of all the places to make the first visual blunder, why did it have to be here? Well Archers reality marble/noble phantasm Unlimited Blade Works was unleashed and Ufotable thought the best treatment would be to render […]

Knights of Sidonia S2 – 1-2

Even after a long break its nice to see that Sidonia hasn’t lost its edge. The story is still engaging and CG robot battles dynamic. However…was the CG this bad before? I remember it took some time to get used to the CG animation of the last season but this seems especially stiff. The easy […]

Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Bladeworks – 16

So at the start of this episode featured the big moment of Gilgamesh ripping out Illya’s heart and it was surprisingly underwhelming. It is true that in context this makes more sense and fits his character better. But it is a little disappointing. Strangely this wasn’t how it was in the visual novel and this […]

Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Bladeworks – 15

The word that encompasses this episode in a nutshell would be brutal. Whether you love her or hate her, I say few would believe that Illya deserved this fate. The tragedy is ever more pungent if you know the full details of her past. Anime only viewers may not get the most out of this […]

Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Bladeworks – 14

As a reader of the Fate/stay night visual novel I can confirm that the majority of this episode was anime original content. However instead of being about castors history like I thought, it’s of his backstory with her first master. In all honestly making the episode be about her history with Jason would have been […]

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 […]

Kyousogiga Review – 90/100

Everyone’s taste is different, and that’s a wonderful thing because that allows us to have so many different forms of media that all aim toward their own niche. My blog is obviously written from the perspective of my own taste, and even when a show doesn’t cater to it (which is nearly always), I love […]

Ore no Nounai Sentakushi ga, Gakuen Lovecome o Zenryoku de Jama Shiteiru Review – 80/100

Noucome! You do not want to know how long I have been waiting for a series like this. More than half a decade, at the very least. Finally a series comes along and puts the incredibly overused harem genre in its place. And it actually does it well. Thank you! So to elaborate: the harem […]

Pokemon: The Origin Review – 75/100

Normally I try to avoid spoilers with these reviews, but screw it, it’s Pokemon. Pokemon The Origin is a bomb of nostalgia. If you haven’t played Pokemon Red, Blue or Green, then you will not enjoy this one slight bit. This really is made as pure undilluted fanservice for the fans of the first games. […]

Tamayura – More Aggressive Review – 75/100

I’m not going to dedicate a post for my impression for the final three episodes of this series. It was just too boring to write much about. I guess that that gives a pretty accurate indication of what I think about this series. Right at the start of Tamayura’s second season, I asked one question: […]

Silver Spoon Review – 86/100

When Noitamina started airing two series per season, it was amazing. It’s a timeslot that on average tends to be aimed at a much older audience than usual, and having two series with the same mentality definitely helped to bring more diversity to anime overall. Unfortunately it’s a schedule that could not be kept up […]

Yondemasuyo, Azazel-San Z Review – 82,5/100

Reviewing a comedy sequel usually is quite simple: in most cases it just drops the bomb and runs out of inspiration, and in rare cases it actually manages to stay hilarious. The tricky thing with these kinds of series is that you need to remain funny, and you need to have the inspiration for that. […]
