Bleach could have been an epic journey.

Now it just seems to be a downward spiral into pointless fights and non-sense that doesn't seem to follow any of the established "rules" of this series that made it great.

I am thoroughly enjoying the chapters, though. They're a bit random and may seem out of character, but it's BLEACH all right to me.

I just hope he's not trying to make Ichigo take his time to Soul society because it's been like 4 or 5 chapters now and he still hasn't arrived, it better not be like Goku running on snake way.

I don't mind the repetitive fights, because that's what you read a series like Bleach for.

What I don't like is how each new enemy is presented and established as having the power to curbstomp the protagonists... which they do, but only in their introduction. After the heroes get their asses beaten and lick their wounds, they get either mutual kills or curbstomp the villains in turn.

Everyone taking 20 minutes to explain their powers or use some kind of transformation technique doesn't help.

I know what you mean he's trying to find ways on how they can beat the enemy such as when they said Ichigo is only using a quarter of his powers they're trying to make him too overpowered

Thank God I caught up to Bleach last week or otherwise, this would of been a spoiler minefield for me. Yeah, the writing seems to be out of place and everywhere now. I wonder what else Kubo has in stored for its fans...

bleach is so bad now, it has almost become a comedy. it is basically a collection of random fights and cool looking weapons. the average dialogue between two characters only has roughly half real words. the other half are just random "bleach words" that have no meaning. what is said does not matter because the story does not make sense anymore. regardless, i still enjoy reading bleach every week lol

All the comments are sad but true. Just like it was said in the new batman movies.. "You either die a hero, or live long enough to see yourself become the villain" , but in this case, "All popular mangas will either end as a great, or run long enough to make readers question why they even put up with it"

I'm actually glad the anime ended where it did, on a high note.
and now for my list of gripes about everything bleach since the aizen arc ended! (and a little before, sorry for the text wall)

1) Gin, his whole life serving aizen to get back at him was pointless. (just saying, worst time to backstab ever, he SHOULD have saved toussen from dying since y'know he was completely friggin immune to his zanpaktou being blind and all but noooo

2) The whole fullbring arc. It wasn't terrible, but it was kind of weird and it's also the point that nobody really has any idea how strong ichigo is.

3) The espada ranking... having a 0 espada, having it be yami, and losing to half-dead byakuya and zaraki. Other than that, stark being number 1 and not ever using either of the "most powerful cero" that grimmjow and ulquiorra used.

4) People (baddies and ichigo) getting endlessly stronger without balance/continuity. Before ichigo showed up it took 1000's of years to learn a bankai, even captains had trouble killing the huge menos, and arrancars, especially the espada were captain level or higher. Once in a while, like what should have happened in the fullbring arc, underpowered baddies should be completely and utterly curb stomped.

5) Ishida, the LAST quincy.. (lol) and the fact that all of a sudden, there is a huge previously unknown army of quincies capable of absorbing hollows and stealing bankai and also possessing unique random abilities almost like zanpaktou or hollows

6) to make sense of the recent random huge army of quincy that were supposedly wiped out. you would have to think that after they were killed as humans and none of them became hollows from negative emotions caused by shinigami double crossing them and all of their wandering spirits which likely all had potential to become shinigami (seeing as they had powers while human) were "ignored" after being sent to rukongai, that they somehow developed a way to travel between dimensions without any gate/key even basing in both hueco mundo/soul society without being noticed by anyone at all ever. Thats a huge stretch that the manga doesn't even attempt to explain.

7) Zangetsu is actually the bad guy so Ichigos zanpaktou is what again? Shouldn't there be the hollow, quincy and shinigami/zanpaktou power in his inner world thing? I feel like there should be an episode where they are all having drinks together. Zangetsu drinking coffee, "whatever ichigos zanpaktou is" drinking tea and hollow ichigo chugging spiked energy drinks.

**Spoiler'**

8) What was the point of Komamura turning into an actual dog? Did Kubo just want to make him a dog or what?

9) All of the 0 squad or original shinigami people in the place-over-soul-society (wherever thats supposed to be) were disappointing and anticlimactic to me

10) Sadly, I find the zanpaktou filler arc to be more interesting than whats out now (not that it was bad, it was the best filler arc imo, but an arc thats not canon beating out actual story is just not supposed to happen)

And those are all of my gripes about bleach. On a side note, i'm glad naruto is winding up, and I hope after this great ninja war that it doesn't pull a bleach and have something like a sage of the 7 paths 100-tail jinchurriki that was *sleeping* somewhere unknown until he randomly decides to wake up and take over the world with peace

If you finished this, thank you for reading my rant btw

Well... *wall of text inc.*

1. Gin backstabbed Aizen at the most opportune moment. He waited until Aizen thought his victory was absolute (much like Madara) before playing his trump card. Unfortunately, it didn't work for Gin because he's not the main character.

2. The Fullbring arc did feel weird and out of place, but to continue the story Ichigo needed his powers back, and it explained Chad's powers (to a degree) so whatever.

3. The Espada ranking was fine. The only curveballs that were thrown was Yammy being #10 and #0, though whether or not he really deserved that rank is another question. It's also implied that in Resurrección Segunda Etapa Ulquiorra might have been the strongest Espada, since even Aizen didn't know about his Second Release. Starrk might not have ever used Cero Oscuras, but he was able to fire normal Cero as sub-machine gun bullets, which more than makes up for not using Cero Oscuras (which any of the Espada could likely use, they just don't want to or like to for whatever reason).

4. The power level continuity is indeed all over the place, and one of my major gripes about the show / manga.

5. The Wandenreich did kind of come out of nowhere, but in regards to their powers, everyone has to have something unique about them in a series like Bleach. Naruto does the same thing for the most part.

6. It's unknown how the Wandenreich got to Soul Society in the first place, but it's implied they've been lurking there for a millennium. "Wandenreich" literally means "Invisible Empire" in German, the Quincies of the Wandenreich have been shown making themselves invisible in any bit of shadow, and they fought with Soul Society approximately a millennium ago - they've been there ever since, just invisible and biding their time.
