some fillers were quite nice, i didn't like the one with some sorta princess tho

avatar

I will start off with some positives for this how. I absolutely loved the OST for bleach I thought Shiro Sagisu did an amazing job. Now to the negative.... The show went on too long and had too many fillers. It seemed like there were whole seasons that did not advance plot or character development.

avatar

Best ever anime in my top list after dbz

avatar

The early seasons were good, then it went down hill with fillers and repetition. I didn't particularly like the multiple story arc, other than the main one. At time the show remind me more of Dragonball than I care for.

avatar

I stopped watching show and only followed up with the manga. I started watching again at the beginning of the 16 season. This looks promising.

avatar

This is a great show - great story line and lots of laughs to boot... If you line anime - what this!

avatar

I have watch till 250 EP then I thought its just toooooo long.. so stop it now.. :( newy its good anime, has different story and might not like it for a while and then like it again with new story.. but its just too long for me..

avatar

was good, but gets repetitive quickly

avatar

Apparently not cancelled, was a mistranslation. They are merely changing networks again. It will be back, they need to give time for the magna to be written, so expect a wait! It was either a wait for the final battle or more filler, and judging by all the filler complaints below (I quite like the filler!) nobody wants to go down that path.

avatar

The characters and story start out really strong, however, loses it's steam halfway through the series. There is minimal character growth established in the main and supporting characters. Other than that, the soundtrack is phenomenal along with smooth animation. Overall, it's a fun watch, but the story pattern could be repetitive.
