Why Bleach Sucks (But I Keep Reading It)

Carla from Denkiphile Entertainment: "When I first began reading Bleach, I was 14 and a freshman in high school. The concept was basic enough. A boy of 15 with orange hair could see ghosts. My interest was piqued by an adult swim promo and then, sometime after that, a friend told me I should start reading the manga. I did and it was good. It wasn’t groundbreaking, but the story was coherent enough, characters likable enough, concept cool enough, and most importantly fights were filled with special moves and lots of high pressure blood. At 14 I thought Bleach was pretty good. I’m 21 now and I can safely say that Bleach is pretty terrible and it’s not simply because I got older. Bleach is terrible because all of the things that I listed as good devolved horribly." (Anime, Bleach, Manga)

Bleach isnt the best but its certainly not terrible. The onlt times I have been disappointed with Bleach was when the Espadas all got whipped and the fullbringer arc.

the fullbring arc was bad but it was necessary. Hard to say the 1000yr blood war is bad though i LOVE this arc

I personally think 1000 year blood war arc is the best arc since the soul society arc.

that's what I've been saying about naruto lately. it sucks but I keep watching.

I have to admit I kind of agree with that. Some of these things, like Naruto and (until it finally ended) Negima, I continued with only because I'd been there at the very start, and I hate leaving things half-finished. But I'd never intentionally start most of those series today.

I started reading Bleach in highschool as well but I don't quite agree about the characters. Bleach has a looot of characters so each one can't get fleshed out to the greatest degree. There are 13 captains, 13 vice-captains as well as other prominent characters of lower rank and that is just in the soul society. There are also the vizards, humans,fullbringers,and arrancars. One could argue that he has too many characters but I really like the diversity. He shows signs of growth in the diverse characters when they gain new powers and new perspectives. Right now, we are gonna get more information on the lives of Unohana and Zaraki for instance.
