first the dude gets power, then loses it, then get's his own power, then gets his mask power, then get's his ''final'' power, then loses his power, then get's his true power, in the manga he like gets two swords so this bullshit probably continues there.
>>135798796 -Terrible pacing. -MC with absolutely no personality. -Terrible pacing. -Introduction of dozens of characters without fleshing out the dozens that already exist. -Terrible pacing. -Power creep which has rendered many characters ultimately useless. -Terrible pacing. -MC being half everything just for convenience to the plot. -Terrible pacing. -Terrible pacing.
>>135798796 Characters who were initially interesting lost their flare because Kubo failed to give them any arc or growth
Fights went from being strategic and fun to DBZ-tier art-obscuring explosions mixed with ridiculous ass pull abilities ("when I die I impregnate whatever's nearby me," "I physically can't be damaged in any way whatsoever," etc)
Kubo stopped drawing characters in relation to their environment and each other (I'm not talking about the "white backgrounds" meme, I'm saying that he literally is incapable of doing an overhead shot of a group of characters standing together that looks visually good)
>>135798796 Ichigo has zero personality and likable traits. There's a huge amount of boring characters which overshadow the few decent ones. The conflicts are lame. The story should've ended a while ago. I guess the biggest issue is that there really isn't an overarching problem that guides the story.
>>135803391 Kubo should have brought in a time traveler after Mexico. Have him be the son of Rukia and Ichigo and have him warn everyone about the killer Quincies created by Dr. Ywach, the scientist behind the Quincy Ribbon Army. Then have them all get absorbed by Imperfect Ywach to create Perfect Ywach, then have a training montage in the Dangai where everyone learns to go Bankai 2.
>>135803669 I still wanted to see it.. or read it Starrk was boring as fuck. "hurr durr I am lonely.. Play with you? Sure" Baraggan boiled down to "How the fuck am I going to have the shinigami crew defeat him? Literally everything they would throw at him would decay.. " and honestly I cannot remember how they defeated him. Ulq v2 was crap. Why he was a fan favorite I will never know but why didn't he ever show that stage to Aizen? It would have pushed his number up. And why the heck was he the only one that could do it? That is like having Gohan being the only one that can go ssj
>>135799788 Most people agree with this, but what would you do to end the story from there? My version: >Aizen escapes with hogyoku >Ichigo and Co. make amends with soul society and goes home to let them prepare for war >prototype arrancar start appearing in Karakura >Hat and Clogs apologizes, exposits on hogyoku, hollow/shinigami hybirds, and how to stop it >he takes Orihime into training to destroy hogyoku >Isshin (revealed as first vizard) takes Ichigo to do dangai precipice world training >Chad and Uryu (armed only with minimal spirit tools and wits) defend town in the meantime >shinigami provide back up as arrancar attacks become more intense/frequent >Grimmjow and Ulquiorra show up to slap people's shit until the captains show up >captains slap their shit >arrancar Ichimaru and Tosen show up, give captains a hard time >Ichigo and Isshin finally show up, wipe Ichicmaru and Tosen with no effort >Aizen shows up, spills evil plan, becomes butterfly >Isshin dies. Ichigo must contain rage to have any chance against Aizen >Aizen actually dies, hogyoku destroyed >Ichigo left powerless, Karin and Tatsuki revealed to have shinigami potential >the end
>>135803875 >why didn't he ever show that stage to Aizen? It would have pushed his number up Segunda Etapa was a plot device to make Ichigo fight the strongest Espada without ever calling Ulq the strongest Espada, so Ichigo seems to be less of a Mary Sue.
Started to take itself too seriously. The later fights in Hueco Mundo felt like they had no character to them. I actually really enjoyed the Fullbringer arc because it was more like the beginning. Ichigo felt vulnerable and not unstoppable and the fate of the world didn't depend on him so he could actually lose.
Kubo likes to introduce characters more than developping them. Also he should have kept the tone of the pre soul society chapters, when hollows were still a threat and lighting wasn't the main focus. But he went the yuyu hakusho way.
>>135798796 Well, let's see: >Trying to write a seinin in WSJ, which doesn't work and just ends up being half-baked edgy shounen >Panel layout looks good, but make inefficient use of space and drags pacing to a crawl >Kubo solves writers block by introducing new characters, so the cast is way too bloated. >Fights are formulaic as fuck, whoever has the most trump cards wins. >Ichigo's character has gotten progressively more bland, to the point where he's completely uninteresting >Constant asspulls >No backgrounds
>>135798796 Kubo doesn't know how to get from point A to B. He has good ideas but his pacing is completely shit and he fucks up said ideas somehow. MC is bland and secondary characters don't get enough exposure.
>>135800260 >It's like if the final bosses of HxH were a group of surviving Kurtas. I think it's pretty different, A Quincy vs Shinigami war has always been obvious, I kind of like how we're going to end similarly to how we started: Ichigo vs Uryu. Unlike the Kurta clan, Quincys were a major adversary and given how they died out with have some bad blood with the Soul Society; A better example would be The Kurta clan vs Meteor City or Phantom Troupe.
>>135807092 When will Kubo realize that he needs to cancel Bleach and write a spinoff where all the characters work in the fashion industry? He could even keep the name, and it would actually make more sense.
>>135807579 You wouldn't even have to write the characters much differently either: >Ichigo is a hard-worker trying to keep his family together while his drunkard dad pisses away thier dead mother's savings >bumps into Rukia, who tells him he can make easy money as a model >Urahara is the eccentric fashion designer looking for freelance models >introduce other friends as either models, seamsters, photogs, or agents >story arc involving jealous agency trying to buy Rukia back >other arc involving Urahara's apprentice taking over the fashion world >other arc involving Ichigo being helped back into the industry after giving it all up to help his friends >other arc involving Ichigo's fashion rival reviving an old agency to take Milan by storm Something like that I guess. It's not hard to rewrite the whole plot to be about fashion.
