Simple question to all you veteran anime watchers.
Bleach. It is (or was) one of the Big 3.
You can't deny its impact on anime.
Every anime fan knows it, but whether they love it or hate it is another issue.

I mean, I admit, I used to fangirl over this shit when I started watching anime.
Like Detective Conan and Reborn!, Bleach was one of the first anime that I liked.
There were a lot of anime I didn't know or didn't give a chance to back then. I was an anime noob (ahem).

-some time later-

I began watching other anime of different genres, (ex. Clannad, Higurashi, Baccano!, etc.)
and fell in love with them instantly. I didn't even have to think it through, they were miles better than Bleach will ever be.
It was when Bleach went through that Zanpaktou arc. I put it on-hold and let the fillers end.
Time passed by, and before I knew it, they had already finished Aizen's arc. So I watched it.
I thought it was a great ending. But then I realized it wasn't over yet.
LOL More fillers appeared and then the new arc had started. BLAH BLAH BLAH.
It got repetitive so I finally dropped it.

My question is, has Bleach ever been your favorite anime?
Spill it. No one's gonna judge you. People make mistakes.

Bonus question:
Why is it that Naruto and One Piece aren't getting the same amount of hate Bleach is getting?
Is it because of the difference in quality? And if not, then why is it?

Discuss.

Never favourite. I relatively liked it at some point, but not so much that I loved it.
Although Naruto was a favourite back when I first started watching anime. Then again, it was the only one I knew, so I've got an excuse :/

As for why it's hated, I dunno. I will say that the main character is probably the most boring character since the creation of shonen manga. I mean, he has nothing. Nothing at all.

No, it never one of my favorites.

I watched the first 26 episodes around when it first started, I fell behind, and then never bother to catch up. It was entertaining, but I didn't miss it. Basically, it was too soap opera-ish for me. It may have been telling a "story" but it wasn't a cohesive story. Bleach seemed to be more about plot tokens: event happens, fight-fight-fight, get device/item, rinse, repeat. I'm just not interested in that kind of storytelling.

Naruto and One Piece are similar so I never started them.

As for why the latter two don't get the same hate? I've heard plenty of hate directed towards Naruto. One Piece? Well, I think there's a larger female audience for One Piece. Maybe that has something to do with it?

Bleach fans seem to worship Ichigo in Bankai mode.
We gotta give him at least that.

Naruto does receive a great amount of hate from anime fans, but IMO, Bleach is hated more.

1st Bleach is always my favorite Shounen anime because i like the characters and the music is so damn good

2nd i don`t hate fillers, but i would drop naruto shippuden when the episode goes over 300.
but i won`t drop One piece because Treasure hunting is an endless adventure.

Bleach ends at 366
Naruto shippuden ends at 500+(expectation)
One piece ends at 9000(expectation)

probably

Was never my favorite by all means, but mostly stuck with it to strive off the boredom... Since I get excessively bored very quick (short attention span). Despite the amount of times I wanted to drop it, just kept on watching it, since I already started.

So as the saying goes... "Once you start something, might as well see it through to the end."

Naruto FTW!!
Everything else is just .... stupid

Yep! One of my first favorite animes that I've watched I remember watching the first 99 episodes on Netflix before I needed to buy the rest
-___-

nevertheless, i used to totally love the show. Because of that, I will surely continue creating some fan art on it

No. I've watched the entire series, from day one. Literally, since the first episode, not jumping in at episode 100 and starting from 1. And it's never been considered my top three. Honestly, I didn't even have a top three till a few years ago. However, my number one has been number one for a long time, and it was one of the first subbed animes I ever watched.

While I hate filler, Bleach filler was actually good. Way better than Naruto filler. I actually liked the Zanpakuto arc where they all came to life. I thought that was a great idea.

But no ... not in my top three.

To tell everyone the truth, I never really watched Bleach. like, starting in episode 1 or something like that..
If I did maybe I just watched it because it was airing in our TV or something..

edit: same goes with Naruto, One Piece && Pokemon.

I've never even liked the show. I've always found it boring.
