Oh Naruto. How I used to love you. The everything up to the Chuunin exam arc was cool Action Shonen with love-them-or-hate-them characters and an artstyle that was, while not great, pretty fitting and ocassionally pretty nice for a weekly Manga.

And then it spiralled down. After Shippuden started it was a trainwreck. With the Pain arc it seemed that, while the artstyle was beyond saving, it would pick up again with a villain that was quite intriguing. Also the far too extensive cast was pruned. And then the mass ressurection happened.

Now it's just shit. I don't even want to start on how incredibly retarded it became with the abandonment of the central theme in the earlier chapters of talent vs effort.
A shame. I really liked it.

I actually quite like Naruto right now. The Naruto-as-Jesus is kind of annoying, but the theme of "I'm going to change the world because I refuse to compromise down a darker path" is nice. I'm confused as to why the anime went with filler the past season, since the manga has quite a lead and areas where it could be expanded in-canon, like Kakashi fighting the swordsmen of the Mist. Off-screen in the manga, could be on-screen in anime.

Bleach's last arc reminded me a lot of Yu Yu Hakusho.

I gave up on One Piece a long time ago.

Sure, if it had started off as a worldwide thing. It started off as some damn annoying kid, trying to get people to accept him, then become some multinational bullshit within the space of ten chapters, several hundred chapters in.

It was a powerlevel preview, and it made it clear that Mr.Kakashi is fuckin powerful n shit. Further, the team could work together besides still not really liking eachother, Haku was a pretty cool guy with freaky powers. Also Zabuzas death scene was too awesome for my young brain.

Outskirts Battle dome is a silly place with silly methods.

Bleach jumped the shark after Soul Society arc, IMO. I get the feeling Kubo had the series actually well written out to that point, and then publisher mandates basically forced him to continue it with filler consisting of 2-3 panels per page and absurdly long and contrived fights.

I never stopped liking the Naruto comic even though the IP has generally grown into something I'm not too fond of. The whole folksy ninja world always felt charming to me. Though I will admit some of the cliches are wearing thin by now.

And I've actually never read much of One Piece, though by most accounts it would seem to be the most creative of the three. Will have to pick that up one of these days.

One Piece because I'm not fond of its art, its humor, and writing.

Bleach because it been dragged on to a point beyond saving. There are also a ridiculous number of loose ends that have been ignored completely.

Naruto for similar reasons and because Naruto is irredeemably retarded and Sasuke is an angsty bitch with no personality.


Aside from that, its mostly because I've just grown out of enjoying the shonen cliches. Oh I also dislike that they've been purposfuly dragged out just to milk the cashcow.

In next week's Chapter.

Naruto: I was legitimately creeped out by Kabuto. Good job Kishi
Bleach: Do I need to re-read Bleach when it was good again? 'cause I don't remember anything about the Quincys.
OP: "Don't speak while in Chopper's body again. Ever" Oh Robin.

Huh. Same here.

And yes, Franky!Chopper has great expressions. Also, didn't see that plotline turning up. Caesar is definitely a grade-A asshole in this case.

Bleach: Do I need to re-read Bleach when it was good again? 'cause I don't remember anything about the Quincys.

Quincy's were human with spiritual powers but unlike the shinigami whose powers purified a hollow of the sins it had committed (but only the ones it committed as a hollow, if you were sinful before hand you're going to hell) the Quincy's powers destroyed them.

This upset the balance of souls and threatened the stability of reality itself. The Shinigami tried to warn the Quincy about this but they didn't listen being much more concern about reaping vengeance on the hollows so the shinigami attempted genocide (supposedly as a last resort). A couple of quincy survived like Uryuu's grandfather.

Years later Mayuri tracked down most of the remaining Quincy and performed sadistic experiments on them, in the name of SCIENCE!

And then pointed out that Old Man Yama didn't kill the other Quincy a millenia ago and this will bite them all on the ass.

Compared to Komamura who does nothing?

Or perhaps compared to "kill 'em all" Yamamato? I mean, does he even have anything going for him beyond generic old man general leader type person?

The most he does is sit around with mammary lady to provide comic relief. Also sometimes agonizes over hinamori getting hurt.

While that kind of characterisation is vastly superior to what you typically get in bleach, he does not possess
enough attributes to be a 'strong character'.

Chaos Greyblood
May 1st, 2012, 02:50 PM
He also needs to do a lot more in order for that charaterization to have some merit.

I liked Naruto back in the day. It was pretty cool beans in the early volumes.

Of course, I'm so far behind that the series will likely be over by the time that I catch up and my opinion of then is wholly irrelevant to current happenings in the manga.

Bleach...I never really ever read Bleach until a little while ago.

The publishing pace is excellent, especially given the level of detail present in some of the weekly editions. The trouble is all the goddamn monologuing and filler reaction shots.

Bartholomew Kuma, also known as "The Tyrant" and PX-0, is one of the Seven Warlords of the Sea (Privateers). He has the ability to push anything with the paw pads on his hand, even things as vague and undefinable as pain. He can also create massive air bursts, teleport himself by pushing himself, and all other neat stuff.
