Should I read it? I just finished the anime and I absolutely loved it, and I just wanna hear opinions on reading because from what I've heard it's not going back to anime, and if so where should I pick it up and is the Manga very/pretty similar to the anime to where I can just pick up where the anime left off? And please no spoilers!!
You can try read the manga but I wouldn't be the same as the anime. I'd read like 100 after the anime ended (~480 to ~600)
It was fun and catchy when the new arc started, but I was bored when the actual arc is too long. In my case, I'm gonna wait for anime adaption or when the manga ends.
I would wait for season 2 of the anime.
The art really makes it hard to tell what's going on at times, terrible pacing, and the fact that fighting scenes will always be better animated.
The manga is a very shit read weekly with hardly any content in every fucking chapter. You could literally finish the average bleach chapter in less than a minute.
This is why the anime adapted several chapters in an episode.
I don't see why not. Pierrot loves milking its shit. There's no way they're letting this one slide. It's too popular. They'll just have to finish their Naruto filler and Tokyo Ghoul filler first.
Start the manga from the beginning, art is fairly rough in the beginning but gets good after 50 or so chapters.
Doubt it. It's been 3 years now, if they don't announce it(at least) this year then just lose all hope.
They will probably wait until the manga is finished or near it's end, until they actually announce a new anime. So sometimes 2017 or 18 I would say. It's also better that way, so we don't have to endure anymore filler or the pacing of the One Piece anime.
>Start the manga from the beginning
Might as-well rewatch the anime.
There's like one chapter where Mizuiro's backstory is portrayed that isn't in the anime as far as my knowledge goes but that's it.
Speaking of Mizuiro. Did anyone else think he'd be more important in the story? It's like Tite completetly forgot how literally based he was in his fight against Aizen
I love Mizuiro. And he was absolutely BASED against Aizen.
Forgot pic. He's a wolf in sheep clothes

Mostly yes. But several scenes were cut from the first arc, like why Shinigami can stand up in the air, Orihime's feeling were more ambigious and scenes about Ichigo were replaced with Tatsuki, IchiRuki scenes were added, while Orihime gained more "shipping" scenes with Ulquiorra and Loly, who came over as some rapist, who had a hatecrush and censoring, except for Komamura, whose wounds were more graphic.
But they made many scenes more impactful, like Hitsugaya stabbing Himamori or Nnoitra's death, animated some ideas, Kubo couldn't incoporate, like Ashido, and show some off-screened fight or scenes.
it was mostly in the first two arcs. And rather small ones, but for the more extreme shippers "proof". But there was the scene in Hueco Mundo, where kid Nel was jealous of Rukia, which wasn't there in the manga. They seem to like the idea, that Ichigo has an harem from every race. Wouldn't be surprised if they add scenes with him and the Femritter.
The changed Pierrot do over-all aren't always for the worse though. People really seem to shit on them for their Naruto Filler for example but the filler is actually genuinely just much better than the original story. I can assume that most of the additional changes made in bleach (not filler arcs) are with Tite's consent or maybe even at his request.
Never said, whether that was good or not, just what the differences were. Some changes were for the better, but some were also for the worse. And apparently if Kubo likes something, he will incorporate it into the canon, like the first movie, some zanpakto spirits or the design of Uryuu's mother.
If you just want to read what didn't get animated, better wait for the manga to end and then read it or see if it gets animated, because as everyone else says the pacing in the latter arcs is awful and that damages its quality.
I think the manga is only worthy to read if you do it from the beginning, so you don't miss the manga at its best and get to appreciate the storytelling in this form.
