These fillers are messed up anyway, although the fightings were not that bad at all. I really liked Chad's and Rukia's fight.
But at least come with something that can be enjoyed, because this story and it's enemy's just dont make any sense to me. (including in terms of power)
They should just do a "what-if" scenario were Ichigo could not stop his Hollow from taking over and let him rampage the complete earth to a point were even Aizen is not considerd a threat. I miss that crazy laugh
These fillers are killing me, I guess they thought they were too close to the manga or something, whatever the reason I hope they hurry up and get it over with.
Saw the first two episodes and gagged on the utter absurdness of this new "arc", if it can even be called that. The Bount Arc was respectible- ESPECIALLY in the fact that it didn't cut through SS, and instead happened afterwards. Instead of creating a decent story that doesn't screw with canon, they take the first episode of the new filler and not only disorient us as to when and how it's taking place, but punch canon right in the nuts.
Doesn't mess with the manga at all, thankfully, but certainly screws with the anime. Unless of course the filler characters meet very [un]timely deaths.
The Bounto arc was among the best filler arcs I have ever witnessed. Great fights and villian...everything worked out somehow.
I dont see that happening with the current fillers though.
these fillers are not as bad as everyone makes out
if you watched the seasons of fillers naruto left behind after part 1 then you wouldn't complain much about the bleach fillers arcs.
They are structured and are meant to lead somewhere
don't forget people they did say at the begining of the arc. THis is something completely different to the current story so i guess they will end it with them starting the story again
Fillers are lame no matter how short or long they are..I realized this when I watched every single filler episode or "NARUTO" I didn't know any better I thought they would be over soon enough but they kept going and going and going and...are they over yet?! (JK) But seriously I am not watching the Naruto or Bleach fillers because all it will do is turn me away from the series as a whole. I mean I will probably check them out if I was on like house arrest or something but I don't know. When will the fillers be over anyways after summer?!
How the heck can the fillers ruin the story, when they have NOTHING to do with the original Bleach storyline?
That's like saying the Dragonball Z movies, messed up the flow of the series, it makes no sense.
These fillers are completely separate from the series, similar to the Bleach movies. They have NOTHING to do with the canon series, so they can't ruin it.
It was stated in the first episode that these fillers aren't a part of the original series, so for those too ignorant to understand that, I'm sorry for you.
What's with people watching the first few episodes of this filler arc. and saying it sucks, yet saying the Bount Arc was good?
The first 5-8 episodes of the Bount arc sucked. They played a stupid little game with Urahara's little toys, and then it took over 4 episodes to build into the story, THEN they had a bunch of useless encounters and fights in Karakura Town before actually entering Soul Society, and starting the good parts of the series.

^ Because the Bount Arc was still better at that point (though not by much).
People wouldn't be so dismissive about this arc if it wasn't worse.

To answer your question, unfortunately bashing the fillers is just another way of spam...it's an opinion the first time but by God when it's done week after week with almost the same expressions" sucks, crap,...etc" by the same posters then it's plain spam.
Thank you Silhouette. I appreciate the warm welcome ^_^
As for the fillers themselves, I did notice that people just constantly continue to bash them, despite them only seeing the first few episodes, which IMO were crappy for sure. They weren't as bad as the Bount arc. beginning IMO, but it was pretty lame. Episode 176-177 is what drew my attention to these fillers finally. I was hoping I'd get to see a chance to see Chad in a fair fight for once, instead of either easily defeating his enemy, or getting completely owned by the enemy.
episode 182-183 are the far best filler episodes i've seen in bleach (or narutos MAIN story anime for that matter) the vice captains arguing & ichigo vs. the imaginary captain's fights were pretty good
At least they integrated the Bounto Arc into the story, this is just like... well, let's stop the current canon stuff in HM to go to a meaningless conflict in the SS.
I don't mind these fillers. It makes sense that SS would want to fill in their captain posts, so even if they he was then incorporated into later arcs it wouldn't bother me as it seems plausible. The captain would make a much better addition than those dolls from bounto arc which still appear like they did to help renji fight that bull guy thereby changing what was shown in the manga.
but will the captain exist in the canon series or will he just die some pointles death along with kifune (kifune's dead for sure)
still.... i would like to see a new captain in the main story too (but NOT ikkaku i've had enough of him by now)
The 3rd seat of the 3rd division will be killed off by Kira or caught by Kira resulting in Jail or going back to the patrol group with Amagai.
