  1. Chapter Bleach 686 "Final" Discussion

    Yeah, not gonna lie, that ending was pretty bad. Pairings aside (nothing really wrong with them with Kubo at least having the sense not to go into shipping overload like Naruto did) it just leaves so many unanswered questions. It's like Kubo had this ready for when he finally got around to...
  2. Chapter Bleach 415 Discussion

    Re: Bleach 415 Discussion/416 Predictions A token friend does not automatically make someone complex or sympathetic. When you mess with people's minds and feelings just to get a chuckle you've already proven yourself to be a twisted villain who deserves to die. I adore Gin, but it's exactly...
  3. Chapter Bleach 415 Discussion

    Re: Bleach 415 Discussion/416 Predictions Darth Vader isn't even in the same category as Hannibal Lecter or the Joker as Vader was an honorable warrior knight. Joker and Lecter are total monsters even with Lecter's complex, tragedy-ridden past. And let's not even get into the Joker who doesn't...
  4. Chapter Bleach 415 Discussion

    Re: Bleach 415 Discussion/416 Predictions Exactly, you have to build stuff up beforehand and give bigger hints towards something like that. You can't just give someone a generic flashback and expect people to buy into it, that's insulting on so many levels.
  5. Chapter Bleach 415 Discussion

    Re: Bleach 415 Discussion/416 Predictions Yes, there is such a thing as bad writing regardless of opinion and this is one such example; there are no hints towards Gin secretly being a good person or whatever and trying to make some tragic motivation for him in the last five minutes is rushed...
  6. Chapter Bleach 415 Discussion

    Re: Bleach 415 Discussion/416 Predictions uh, Gin is a guy who antagonized Rukia, Momo, and Hitsugaya for FUN. That's right, nothing more than a sick, twisted idea of amusement so trying to do the "oh he's actually an anti-hero!" is sloppy at best. Especially since he STABBED Rangiku no more...
  7. Chapter Bleach 415 Discussion

    Re: Bleach 415 Discussion/416 Predictions It's become pretty much impossible to defend Kubo without looking delusional; his artwork has become static and lazy, his writing consisting of either too little or long, boring WALLS of text, and has apparently given the middle finger to continuity...
  8. Chapter Bleach 415 Discussion

    Re: Bleach 415 Discussion/416 Predictions Aizen SUCKS as both a character and a villain; the guy is BORING and there's no dramatic tension with him. He's a Gary Stu through and through and Kubo constantly cramming him down the readers' throats is just downright insincere on so many levels. Him...
  9. Chapter Bleach 415 Discussion

    Re: Bleach 415 Spoiler Discussion riiight, Gin as a sympathetic character...how utterly contrived and sloppy, especially when he was better off as a pain-inflicting psychotic. The Hougyoku thing makes no sense and Kubo negating the entire point of a chapter in five minutes (AGAIN!) proves that...
  10. Shounen Hajime no Ippo by Morikawa Jyoji

    and unfortunately Woli is the worst-written character in the series. Even David Eagle, friendly as he was, wasn't as blank, dull, and Gary-Stuish as Woli was.

    now let's just agree that this whole fight NEVER HAPPENED.
  12. Shounen Hajime no Ippo by Morikawa Jyoji

    eeeeyeah, Woli, trying to do the corner strategy isn't going to work now that your legs are made of jelly.
  13. Shounen Hajime no Ippo by Morikawa Jyoji

    Whoo-hoo, Woli's gettin' the snot kicked outta him! Get 'im, Ippo, get 'im!
  14. Shounen Hajime no Ippo by Morikawa Jyoji

    FINALLY, Morikawa got it together; guess he got over that stupidity virus that has terminally affected most other shounen writers these days.
  15. Shounen Hajime no Ippo by Morikawa Jyoji

    true, because watching smug bastards getting a wake up call is so deliciously cathartic
