Same here, but this fucking arc has been going since June of 2012 and it seems like we're only halfway done.

Kubo said it would take 10 years. I think he might have said at least 10 years but I'm not sure.

You're thinking Oda. Kubo said the Arc would be longer than the Arrancar stuff.

I'm not, really. I buy the collected volumes and skim through them for the fanservice and a general idea of where the plot is going. It would be painful as fuck to follow it weekly like you guys do.

I stopped reading sometime in the summer last year, did Aizen do anything yet?

>>135671842
I'm so glad I dropped this series after the Soul Society Arc, I just knew Kubo wrote himself in a corner and is now just writing it on the spot as he goes along. The man has no real end game.

I think you posted 2 reasons why I still "read" the manga.

Also, Askin is cool.

How long has it been since Kubo said this would be the last arc?

I wanna see more bankais.
I just want to see what powers and designs he comes up with. That's more or less it.

That's all Kubo can do anymore: write asspulls until one character's asspull reigns supreme. And make no mistake, this was an asspull of tremendous proportion.

This current arc is 178 chapters long and counting. Naruto's final arc was 185

The Sternritter's second invasion (where it really starts to drag), is 111 chapters and counting, longer than any arc in One Piece, Fairy Tail, or Dragonball. And it's on it's way to being longer than HxH's Chimera Ant arc's 132 chapters.

This fight has been good. Both Askin and Yoruichi are great, fun characters while trap otouto is a nice surprise.

Shunsui/Barro was fucking terrible but I thought Pernida/Mayuri was one of Kubo's better battles this arc.

1. Askin
2. Haschwalth
3. Giselle

The only ones that I like.

As bad as Naruto's last arc was, I still think Gantz's was worse.

Basically the same problems. Just a matter of preference.

Pretty bad senpai.
>>
>>135672149
But we've known what he could do for a while now. It's not an asspull, it's just that if you aren't fast enough to kill him with a certain method it becomes null so you have to try something else.
>>
>>135676076
I'm sure if Kubo really puts his mind to it, he can come up with something twice as retarded

"Second Invasion" arc ended a year ago, we're on the Warwhelt arc a.k.a the Post-Soul King arc. You're an imbecile if you missed this massive transition in tone and setting.
>>
>>135671842
Why are you reading this?
>>
>>135677107
I guess, but it's still the point where the arc pretty much becomes nothing but fights.
>>

>but it's still the point where the arc pretty much becomes nothing but fights.

I don't understand how this point relates to your original post whatsoever, but okay, sure. Everyone complained about the lack of any major fights during the first half of the year so I'm not really surprised those same people are complaining about "too many fights" in a Battle Shounen.
>>
>>135671842

I want Aizen to stand up
>>
>>135677232
What? If anything it was the opposite. People were glad that Kubo was putting more focus on story at the start of the arc.
>>
>>135677318
I didn't get that impression, at least not from /a/; discussion seemed to have been much slower than usual.

Regardless, Mayuri vs. Pernida was worth the wait in my opinion, as was Shunsui vs Lille (even if the second act fell a bit flat), as well as Kira's return. At the very least I can say we've turned the corner in regards to Schultzstaffel fights.

Naruto's ending was better than the entire arc that preceded it.

I don't think Yoruichi's tits fuck Soul King's heart.

>Last arc
Right. Much like how Naruto was ending with the movie.
>>
>>135677684
Difference is Naruto is still hugely popular.
>>
>>135677780
And this is Kubo we're talking about here. Did you really then the last arc is actually the last arc?
>>
>>135671842
it's fun and good.

And we know he lethal dose since a while back so it's not an asspull.
>>
>>135677851
>fun and good
Bleach is now an experiment to see how long you can have a manga where nothing ever happens at all.
>>
>>135677911
That sounds more like Detective Conan.
>>
>>135677838
Yes. As much as Kubo wants to continue drawing it or Jump wants to keep making money off of it, Bleach needs a conclusion. And unlike Naruto, no really one gives a shit about Ichigo's half-Hollow children.
>>
>>135677977
Is Ichigo being a Vizard still a plot-point? When's the last time that's been addressed.
>>
>>135677977
The ride never ends, anon. Because we all know after the last arc will be the zero arc.
>>
>>135672477
The final arc started around February 2012.

Holy shit.

idk

The whole premise of his power is that he's every kind of spiritual entity smushed into one body, and being a Vizard ties into that. It'll probably be addressed again when we get more exposition on his DIMENSIONS, shortly after it's revealed that he's actually the Soul King's scrotum.
>>
>>135677480
>Mayuri vs Pernida
I never understood why people get so hard over Mayuris fights, they are literally nothing but ability explaining and when they are explained the abilitys of the enemy are analyzed. After that the procedure repeats itself until the enemy is literally analyzed to death. This usually takes like 10 chapters. Seriously I always found it horrible to read
>>
>>135678567
The Mayuri fights are great examples of Kubo's talent in writing. The dialogue tops everything else in Bleach.
>>
>>135678058
Have Vizards been specifically been mentioned as a plot point during this arc? No, not really, and we've only seen Mashiro use her mask.

Has Ichigo's hollow power been brought up as a plot point? Yes, in it's entirety. His Hollow has become his new Zanpakuto.
>>
>>135678639
>ichigo's hollow power
So did he get his zanpaktou because of Aizen and Whitey or was it always a part of his blood?

Kubo overdid it with Aizen if it's the former.
>>
>>135677107
You're an imbecile if you think Bleach warrants the remembrance of such irrelevant details.
>>
>>135678618
>Mayuri holding a monologue about this and that ability using science mumbo jumbo
yeah sure I see the appeal but he drags the shit out of all those fights, it was like that in the arrancar arc and it got even worse in this arc.
>>
>>135678567
But it wasn't like any other Mayuri fight. Mayuri fights were always boring because he never lost. Even when Uryu had the upper hand he still didn't "lose", because he escaped with his life.

But against Pernida, not only did he rarely ever have the upper hand, and even though he defeated the opponent, he still lost something precious to him. It was "humanizing" for one of the least human-like characters in Bleach.
>>
>>135678567
Unlike trash such as one piece, naruto and opm where it is just ran I hit you harder than you hit me his fights actually use tactics and planning
>>
>>135677659
WELL THEY SHOULD!
>>
>>135678639
>His Hollow has become his new Zanpakuto.
I love how this manga makes even less sense when someone tries to explain what happened.
>>
>>135678691
>So did he get his zanpaktou because of Aizen and Whitey or was it always a part of his blood?

Neither. The whole point of his training with Nimaiya was to point out that Ichigo never started with an Asauchi. Hismask then becomes his new asauchi.

yes, again I see the appeal and this was for a change done pretty well. I still think the fight lasted like two or three chapters to long.
