Ok, I think Im about to give up on the anime for a while. The fillers after the SS Arc were fine in that it fleshed out characters more, like Ishida, and gave Aizen more time to do w/e he was doing in Hueco Mundo. Bt now these new fillers are just so off the wall its not funny. Grimmjow gets defeated and BAM! we are back in time before the HM Arc. Lets alos mention a new captain and 3rd seat who never appear in the manga at all. Im sorry but thes two new characters have killed the anime's story line the most. The only way out I see if for both to be killed by the end of the fillers or for it all to be a dream or something of that nature.
What do you think?

fillers generally have that affect on any series. remember naruto when they made one of the 7 swordmen filler, and naruto defeats him back when naruto couldnt tie his shoes?
I gave up on this arc a few weeks ago.
The only reason studios make filler in the first place is money. They could just stop producing stuff, and let another show air in the meantime, but I'm sure there are plenty of people who'll watch every episode of this arc from start to finish. That's what they're banking on--and if it's less than usual, it's no big deal.
On topic, I don't think this is killing the story, lame as it is. Why? Because it's not a real part of the story in the first place. The arc is pretty much a bad fanfic put on film.
Its non-cannon so it doesnt really have anything to do with the storyline.
The arc is pretty B.S, but the animation has been quite good, and the manga is in top form - good enough to keep me not bothered about the animé.
I agree with everything except thing: it can't be worse than the Bounto arc.
Well, from the new episode it looks like all this sh!t takes place after HM because Sado didn't know about his left arm before HM...
Anyway, all fillers suck, but Bounto arc at least was after SS arc, not in the middle of it. So yeah, I agree about fillers killing the story in anime, and my only hope is manga and that Kubo won't screw up it.
I'm moving this thread into the appropriate board since it's about the anime.
I just think filler arcs in general have a way of ruining things - for example, the manga portrays Rukia and Co. venture into the real world really dramatically because it is the first time Ichigo and Rukia are meeting after the 'Save Rukia' arc - and it is a first time, period for Renji and Co., but the effect was severly weakened because the anime had them in and out of the real world, like it was commonplace, when in fact it is rare, to avoid unnecessary spirit fluctuations in the real world.
The sad thing about this arc is that its a total buzzkill , it bores me from beginning to end ,the little girl in it also annoys me.They totally made ichigo look like a noivce in this arc also. the bounto arc i thought was pretty awesome , it had some of the best action and animaton i have seen.
It is a poorly put together filler, i rather prefer hiatus over this filler
i just wanna noe how they gonna put ichigo and co bac into HM, seriousli this is 100x times worse than the bounto arc.
ichigo, ishida, chad look like complete noobs. (seriousli i reckon chad could pwn espada 10-7 with that arm but was just unlucki meetin 4) and plus they stopped my favourite shinigami cup for some stupid arancar encyclopedia.
