For a little while I loved this anime. When I first started watching it I thought it was the best thing ever. I got obsessed in the way I sometimes do with particularly good things.
As time went by however and access to episodes of it proved hard to get my interest waned and slowed. When they got to the Soul Society it had degraded in quality from awesome to merely good. I kept watching, saw the Soul Society through to the end, the final battle put me in mind of DragonballZ for some reason...Rather good stuff.....
Then though we got to the Bount arc.
Awful. Just awful.
I stopped watching Bleach regularly 4 or so years ago now. I have occasionally made an effort to stagger forward and get through it but...jesus. Its just so monstrously awful. Worse than the second series of Heroes even.
