That "five ambulances" bit is the best thing in Bleach.
I want someone to try that in real life.
I think Kubo is just much deeper than other mangakas. He leaves white space everywhere because he wants US to fill it up. You want Ichigo fighting NotAizen underwater while Ariel sings in the background? Do it. You want to see Chad and Orihime NOT BEING DEVELOPED AT ALL while they make funny faces at a fashion show? Just pick one of the last chapters with them there (they do a lot of stupid faces, so pick your favourite!) and use some Photoshop magic!
Bleach is the most interactive manga of the next generation.
Thought I was the only one who could post NC videos No Maam. THINK AGAIN!
Edit: BTW. I found this video on YouTube. And I don't know about everyone else but I found it to be pretty funny. There were two other NC Bleach parody videos but honestly they weren't nearly as good. But this one is good.

Proud member of the Beelzebub and Negima are awesome crews.
Toonami is back. All is right again.
Say it with me now: New shows, same Toonami.
Heya guys, I'm finally back from some sweet weeks in Italy. RPGjay, your weekly rundowns were great, and all of you guys comments have been extremely flattering and humbling. I didn't know my weekly rants were so popular and I'll endevour to keep making them, but I far from feel like the top-tier critic here; I think of a lot of you as as, sometimes more intelligent and observant than myself.
Now I'm sick of italian food and hungry for manga- and manga bashing, but my god if these chapters haven't been literally indigestible.
The first one, pretty standard Bleach fare. No continuity/logic abolishing exposition this time, but bad art, senseless powers, and general shoddiness.
The second one...The worst pacing and panel usage in quite some time, but I think we'll all have to wait for next week to see what the complete ramifications of this latest TWEEEEST is. Potentially Kubo could close a lot of plotholes this way, merely bringing us back to square one of "Why the fuck is Ichigo trusting this transparantly evil Aizen clone" moronicness. And Potentially this could become an I PLANNED YOUR ENTIRE LIFE fiasco that will require several paragraphs here to unravel.
At any rate, I think it's safe to say that Kubo considers himself the manga Shyamalan. "Aizen reveal was a big hit, palm of my hand was a decent cliffhanger and rankings were still high...Whether it makes sense or not, by god let there be a twist! It's basically my brand now!"
But for the record Kubo, even now that NotAizen is demoted to NotAizen(lackey) and is free from the obligation of having a main villain motivation...that doesn't excuse the months we've been totally clueless about the intentions of what was the de facto arc villain. Just make a lie. Anything. NotAizen(boss) could just throw out something half-assed on the spot, like "he wants to eat your soul because it's uh, real delicious. Best when served in a state of insane homicidal rage".
It wouldn't matter then that his motivation was untrue- in fact it would make this twist BETTER since we would've had expectations towards the direction of the arc and the plan of the villain, which would then be turned on their head. Like this? We have NO expectations, no idea what is going on, and thus the twist loses impact.

This arc is where Kubo finally lost what last remnants of creativity he still had. I mean really, can anyone think of one unique thing in this arc that isn't just a near copy paste of something from another popular series, or even his own series? I mean, the villain is just Aizen split up between two people instead of one, the character designs are just Kubo's take on characters from other manga series as well as Aizen himself, and the powers are just a much stupider and more nonsensical version of stuff from other series. Kubo has literally done nothing new or creative, not even in the way he brought the different elements together
Welcome back Daz and yup this twist smells of "the Aizen twist is the most famous Bleach moment, lets do it again for ratings!!!!!!"
I like how the most creative and new thing you could think of Kubo doing is blatant fanservice. I mean, how many Shonen manga don't have blatant fanservice at some point or another
