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.

    In a battle that was depicted in Spanish records as a Spanish cavalry charge defeating a massive invasion force of Incas, Archeologists uncovered the battlegrounds and forensic scientists found that most of the Inca soldiers were killed not with sharp weapons that the Spanish used, but rather with the blunt weapons of the Indians.

    It’s been proven that the official Spanish records about their conquistadors are biased and don’t even mention the Indians that fought for them. For example, they depict the Spaniards as defeating a force of 1000 single handedly, which is factually false.

    @Bam No, just because cities were destroyed by cannon fire doesn’t mean the weapons themselves mattered. The Spanish were only able to move their units and cannons around Incan cities because their Indian allies did most of the fighting.

    Now on the topic of war in general, how often do you believe killing the leader of the enemy army complete destroys their organization/army moreso than it wouldn’t?

    In regards to Vietnam I must say, there was a fair bit of pathos and good characterization in both platoon and the deer hunter, even if both had some pacing issues.

    @Emma Vietnam is an interesting example, because not only did they use clever tactics to resist the Americans in the 20th century they used clever tactics to resist the Chinese in the 10th century: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_B%E1%BA%A1ch_%C4%90%E1%BA%B1ng_(938)

Akatsuki no Yona – 03

Hak and Yona flee Soo-Won’s men, but Yona’s mental and physical condition continue to deteriorate. Yona and Hak are both haunted by memories from the past. This was easily the best episode in the series so far. Whereas the first two episodes primarily took place in the present or the future, this episode is mostly spent in […]

Grisaia no Kajitsu – 03

This isn’t looking good. Let me explain, Grisaia has a somewhat nakige visual novel approach. Meaning that it has a comedic relatively plotless first half, followed by a tragic heroine backstory related story arc. Notable examples of this is any Key visual novel anime adaption you can think of. So for the first half we […]

Shingeki no Bahamut: Genesis- 03

Okay, so this episode didn’t focus on Leone and Amira’s adventure. Instead, it focuses on building Kaisar’s character and it does so a bit awkwardly. This episode takes Kaisar and puts him into an overly bombastic situation in order to tell us about Kaisar’s past family problems, but it was so out of tone from […]

Gugure! Kokkuri-San- 03

This show has a great cast, but some chinks in the armor are starting to appear in the comedy. So far, this anime seems to lack a consistent tone, which shows through just how hit-and-miss the comedy is. It attempts to mix elements of light and dark comedy along with slice-of-life and tries to excel in all three […]

Psycho Pass 2 – 02

Episode two continues right where episode one left off and progresses about how you might have guessed. Akane chases the mysterious villain pulling the strings, getting only cryptic responses from Kitazawa. Shimotsuki confronts Akane with her misgivings about Akane’s handling of the arrest. And we finally get some subtle hints towards Kougami’s existence and how his disappearance might […]

Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Bladeworks – 02

The stage is set, the actors are in place and the curtain is rising. So I can say this episode’s title was certainly apt. Unfortunately this week we have no bombastic fight scene to ogle and instead we get a heavy dose of info dumping. This is not the most exciting of episodes but the […]

Grisaia no Kajitsu – 02

The grisaia visual novel was by no means perfect. In fact if I was to summarize it as concisely as possible I would deem it a mixed bag. Some great moments but quite a number of bad storytelling decisions. Still there was hope for this anime adaption. After all the Steins Gate adaption managed to […]

Parasyte-the Maxim- 02

Before I continue reviewing this anime, let me put up a disclaimer: I will be discussing the anime of Parasyte, not the manga. If you want to talk about spoilers, I recommend you go to a site that will talk about those things. Don’t be an ass and discuss spoilers down in the comments, because […]

Some Quick First Impressions: Grisaia no Kajitsu, Trinity Seven and Inou Battle wa Nichijou-kei no Naka de

Grisaia no Kajitsu Short Synopsis: Our protagonist joins a school that has five troubled girls in attendance. AidanAK47’s impression: Grisaia has all the elements to cause many to write it off as a typical harem anime. Protagonist who only wants a ordinary life? Check. Joins school with several female beauties? Check. Panty shots? Sigh…check. 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.

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.

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 […]

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. […]
