    So does the final Bleach Season start immediately where the old anime ended, or is there a bunch of Manga stuff that happens in-between?

    Also I like Bleach, but it has the same issue I have with Dragon Ball Z, all the non-Ichigo (and I guess Captains) become irreverent pretty quick. Let the human characters grow in strength and be as strong as everyone else. Or just Chad. We need more Chad.

    Let Orihime do something productive for once. That was literally the entire impetus for the Hueco Mundo arc is that she's capable of something so dangerous to the biggest Big Bad that he personally singles her out to be captured. Because out of all the anomalies she's the biggest threat to him and he knows it.

    And then they don't really do anything with that.

    Bleach is honestly one where I think a reboot with a better editor could do wonders. Quite possibly with a better writer too (just to help tackle issues like it's shoddy treatment of female characters).

    There's a lot of good core ideas in there. But Kubos I got stuck so I introduced new characters shenanigans and other issues really hurt what it could be

    Ideas hate it when you anthropomorphize them

    I like bleach a lot, but it is trash junk food and I am totally fine with that, I just wish kubo knew what pacing was

    In Kubo's mild defense, i'm given to understand he really got jerked around by editors - X character would become popular, so they had to have screentime. Add in that his way of solving writer's block was to design a bunch of new characters and shove em in,and you get the hilarious trainwreck that is Bleach.

    Like pretty much all of the whatever their name was. The humans with hollow powers, not to be confused with the soul reapers with hollow powers or the hollows with soul reaper powers, who existed for the sole purpose of re-empowering Ichigo to get his soul reaper powers back immediately after he sacrificed those powers.

    Sigh. Apparently it's the week for it, because the author of Galko-chan (which was crude but charming in its own weird way) has also been busted for possession of child pornography. Stuff like this is why I'm increasingly hesitant to mention I enjoy the hobby at all, because the gross side is never far from view, and often serves to mask truly heinous shit like this.

    i understand the mindset here but this is any industry in which powerful men are entrenched; roman polanski released an award winning movie in 2019

    Complete agree, but also, there's a reason this thread has specific rules about not talking about the gross shit, because there's a good chance people would, and have, and were the reason anime threads were banned. Just bums me out that I can't really be enthusiastic about Ousama Ranking because it shares a fandom space with Redo of Healer.

    The Fullbringer arc had some pretty good psychological horror in it, so I've got a bit of a soft spot for it even if the rest of it was just kind of... meh.

    Tsukishima, though. Kubo can write some good powers sometimes.

    Kenpachi is simultaneously the least funny character in the series and also the most hilarious when he gets screentime.

    I've been reading some manga lately

    Inertia 67% - Way more NSFW humor than I normally put up with, but somehow it ends up pretty charming? It's a group of art college friends who are mostly held together because one of them has an apartment conveniently close to campus, which means it's the go-to drinking party apartment. They're all a bit trash and very non-moe, it's like an anti- Honey and Clover. Like there's one guy who's decent looking and wants to have sex and wants to have a girlfriend but he's too puritanical to get the former and too afraid of rejection to get the latter, and in most other series he'd be the protagonist and we'd be expected to sympathize with him, and in this series instead everyone just finds him fucking annoying, because he is. But yeah, a lot of nsfw content, especially the chapter pages, so caution.

    Spy x Family - I mean everybody already knows this series is great. I was just holding off cuz it's nice to have a good series in your back pocket to pull out when things are stressful. So I pulled it out this week, and, yeup, it's great, and now I've got a big ol' backlog to read through! It's such an odd unique mix of wholesomeness, comedy, and surprising bursts of violence. Anya's a brilliant comedic character.

    Blank Space - One girl can create things (except invisible) with the power of her mind. One girl is constantly lost in her overactive imagination. They become friends. You'd think that'd be enough for a series right there, but instead it turns into a much realer story about bullying and depression and not knowing how to pull your friend out of a darkening loop of revenge fantasies. Just like everything about this series is better and smarter and more thoughtful than you'd expect, I really like it.

    A Sign of Affection - Really a pretty standard shoujo romance story, with the interesting twist that the main character is deaf, and her love interest is a Canadian exchange student. It still does a bunch of the shoujo romance tropes that annoy me, enough that I don't think I'm gonna stick around for the more interesting character bits about deafness, but, eh, not bad if you're into that sorta story.

    A trap is for fish: when you've got the fish, you can forget the trap. A snare is for rabbits: when you've got the rabbit, you can forget the snare. Words are for meaning: when you've got the meaning, you can forget the words.

    From what I remember, the Eva units are actually on the larger side for mecha anime, while admittedly the scale in-series is all over the place.

    Evangelion's robots vary in size by like a x4 factor depending on what would look better in a frame, so using them as a size example is a touch less useful than probably intended :P,

    I actually looked it up after that post, and in the original series the scale did indeed vary wildly, but the Rebuild movies did standardise the size at about 80m, which is about 4x the size of Mazinger Z and 1/3 the size of Gunbuster.

    Gunbuster feels more like a spaceship that transforms into a giant robot than vice versa, if that makes any sense. Similar vibe to the much larger Dimensional Fortress Macross in that regard
