I don't know why, but lately I've been avoiding the anime (partially because, last time I checked, they had started the series over AGAIN and Chad had that bloody parakeet) in favor of reading the translated manga. One of my major gripes with filler is that nothing really exciting can happen with them; characters can't die, the main storyline can't have any progression at all...it just kinda sits there and stares at you.
I'm just afraid that it will be the same thing with the Bount arc (and the filler arc that the anime recently hit over in Japan), so I'd rather avoid it than have my interest get capped in the knees, especially since I'm 99% sure that they're not going to learn any new techniques, or even reference it ever again once the main story starts up again...
haha your right that's exactly why i was so pissed a Naruto and the one main reason why i completely abandoned the anime for the manga.
on topic. bleach is the shizz but the anime isnt AS good as the manga but i will say bleach did manage to translate very well into an anime and the manga isn't that much better.
i personally liked the bount arc because the bleach anime was getting into the grove and managed to not kil it with random two episode filler arcs and keep it to one continuous arc that wasnt extremely retarted and boring. that i commend it for.
filler is OF UTMOST IMPORTANCE to a manga anime translation. Rorouni Kenshin was cancelled becasue the anime overrun the manga by episodes and they had to write the anime script before the manga. and thats tragic. and i dont want that to happen to bleach or naruto
