They haven't told us why, that I have seen. This has been asked several times, and they never respond, so at this point I think its safe to assume that the answer is something that they don't want to say. Like, "once a week on the back log is as good as its going to get."

No they are not all filler.

Most of those episodes are playing on CartoonNetwork right now (for the last few weeks) are they not? Probably some legal agreement that they won't publish them on other networks until CN is done airing all the episodes.

That would be my guess.

According to BasouKazuma:
"We basically release the Bleach episodes as soon as we receive the subtitles from VIZ Media. So the release schedule is entirely determinant on that."

When pressed for more he said:
"1. I wouldn't know of any way to pressure them. They are subtitling Naruto and Bleach on CR and they probably translate other stuff too so they may not have the time.
2. We can only use VIZ Media's subtitles for Naruto and Bleach. For most other shows, it's usually up to us to hire the translation company.
3. I don't know the specifics but VIZ probably has localization rights for the shows which includes control over subtitles. Having 1 set of subtitles for TV, DVD, and the Online streaming makes things less confusing."

So yeah... we're playing the waiting game. It is ever so much fun
