I think Fairy Tale can replace it. Its a really good manga and I think the anime is still going on.

If bleach must go then it must go I guess (sniffles ) However I would want Fairy Tail to be the anime to replace it as I just don't understand the hype around Toriko

Fairy Tail will never be as popular as Bleach ever was.
The fact that it can't outsell Bleach, even after its cancellation, says something.

Shame as this current Quincy arc in the manga is the best arc in Bleach since Soul Society. They will return to it a stated, they just didn't want to do anymore filler.

2nd'ing mmadbzfan's rec. for Hunter x Hunter.

Except watch the 2011 series (the one on crunchyroll)

Because the Manga, at times, suffers from horrible artwork. And I'm putting it lightly, because some panels look like Togashi just doesn't care.

Doesn't matter since he's rolling in money anyways.

Hunter X Hunter would be the only Shonen I'd be happy to see get the "GT" treatment. Where the manga is currently they have set up such a rich lore and setting that they can just keep coming up with stories. Just as long as Madhouse keeps the quality up I love to see the anime expand even further.

Read or watch HxH it is by far the best series I've seen and I'm a huge FMA fan myself. I've seen some Kenshin and liked it but HxH is my favorite by far it's just amazing. HxH literally has every single thing that makes shonen great in it. I've watched around 12 episodes of Fairy Tail and didn't like it. That being said I don't like fan service and find it weird if it had less fan service it would be alot better in my opinion.


I may have to check it out, then. Heck the only reason I haven't is because of all the hiatuses taken with the series. I have an adverse reaction to series that are not constantly there. Especially if I get invested in it. (Damn you Black Lagoon..... <.<') Still going to be hard to topple Kenshin in my mind though. I mean, Kenshin is everything a Shonen series should be in all the good ways. Everything is so... well developed.

As for Fairy Tail's fan service, it just has been over-done the last few months. It was always there, but mostly only for comedic purposes and no where near as frequently as now. It was hardly ever there when something serious was going on. The last arc in the manga that changed for some reason. I still have no clue why...

I hope there won't be a new big three just because I have the strangest feeling that if there was a new big 3, it would probably have the same cycle for the anime adaptions: canon, three or so months of filler, rinse and repeat. (I'm not sure if One Piece does this but yet again it is the only anime out of the big 3 to be animated by Toei and not Studio Pierrot)

Well One Piece, Naruto, and Bleach in Japan are not equals. One Piece is like the king, while Naruto and Bleach are the two equals. You need to put this in perspective of the Japanese if you want to understand what is cancelled and why. In America, we call it the big 3, in Japan, It's simply One Piece and any anime that isn't one Piece. Back during the 10th anniversary of One Piece, people like Kubo, Kishimoto, Toriyama, etc. all drew tribute art to One Piece. So Bleach technically isn't all THAT popular which means it could be cut off without any consequence, which is something they won't do to One Piece because it's too popular. That's not to say that Bleach doesn't sell well, but it doesn't sell well enough for them to keep it alive and to them, there is no "Taking the place of Bleach" Just like how if "House" ended, there isn't a show that takes "House"'s place. That's the perspective.

One Piece has fillers but they only span 10 episodes max.
It doesn't have what you call a very long "filler arc" that spans 30+
episodes like Bleach did. One Piece (anime) is pretty much 95% manga.

Nope i am not.


Even though Bleach suffers from crappy writing, crappy characters, crappy art work outside of characterizations (which is starting to blend with each new character introduced as well), and some of the most boring and forced "drama" ever shoved out there? Okay, what ever floats your boat. XD

The bigger shame is that Bleach blew its load after Soul Society ended. Everything that happened in the first two arcs was pretty great.

Anyway, The Big Three....... Naruto is pretty god awful right now. Thank the lord that it is going to be ending soon as well. I don't think I can take much more of the crap that is going on in that series. Used to love it, but it hasn't been good since the Naruto and Pain fight. Everything since then has been one disaster after another in writing, character implosion, and stupid plot twist after stupid plot twist. I just want it to end at this point.

Then we have One Piece...... the best of the three in all categories. Most consistently good, has the best humor, the best story, the best characters, and is all around more enjoyable to read.


You sir, are awesome. I couldn't agree more with anything you said. Though, one piece needs a little work too - they have made the girls boobs too ridiculously huge (minor detail), they spend way too much time on the intro (3 min op, needless recaps, and those god awful explanations of the series - "omg, I didn't know this show was about pirates that are searching for One Piece, or that the main characters are the straw hat pirates :o" - episode 600), and they stretch the episodes and suspense out way too much. But otherwise I love one piece - out of the big three it is definitely the best. I'm pretty sure that in manga sales, One Piece is #1, and world wide it is #2 behind Dragonball (It might be the opposite though)

I would love it if Kenichi: The Mightiest Disciple could take one of the spots!

I love the series! I hope the show one day continues.
