I'm gonna be really sad if this anime comes to an end. Sure it has its ridiculous plot but I just love how Ichigo is a total bad ass and just does everything like a boss lol. Also, I REALLLLLLY Wish we could of learned more about Ichigos dad, Urahara, and Kenpachi. I always wondered how devastating it would be for Kenpachi to have a Bankai lol.

Why would you want something to get canceled just because you don't like it? That... doesn't make much sense, really.

Likely reasons why Naruto is not gonna get cancelled:
  • It has double Bleach's ratings.
  • The Naruto team has gotten pretty good at managing fillers to keep a gap between anime and manga, unlike the Bleach team that completely sucks at it.

Even if you think it is, at least it has one.

Even after "Hulking out", he still goes down after 1 hit. This doesn't bode well for
the rest of the fullbringer team.

Hopefully Tsukishima gets hit with something especially nasty. After all the mind-
#$^*ing he's been doing, he deserves something special.

Sucks for Ishida though. First, he gets cut down by Kugo, then he recovers and
gets cut down again by Tsukishima right quick.

I was hoping Ichigo's living friends would get a chance to shine in this arc, since
Ichigo lost his powers. But they just turned out to be pawns and targets as the
Shinigami came in to steal the spotlight.

Oh well.

It's relevant because there was an ultimate goal from the very first episode, for Naruto to become hokage, and as long as the series is still heading towards that goal it will continue to be relevant. Bleach started out as a "monster of the week" story. The premise of bleach is not some ultimate goal, it's Ichigo beating the crap out of anyone giving him trouble. In that sense it hasn't changed much since he was beating up the school bullies before the series started.

Anyway, out of curiosity I just watched the latest episode for the first time in over a year and I was quite surprised. When the art and animation are up to scratch it can make up for a lot. I thought I was gonna skip through it but I ended up watching it all and enjoying it more than I expected.

This and the last 26ish episode filler arc have been very high quality. You should check it out.

Makes me wonder if they're kinda using up the rest of their budget now though. =p

Don't get me wrong, I think Bleach should have ended after the fall of Aizen with Ichigo staying a human. These remaining arcs will be more of Kubo's inability to sacrifice anything - including characters or their hold on power. Maybe Bleach is far too transparent when it comes to trying to milk a series and that's why it's being taken off the air. Naruto just seems to be better at milking while still looking relevant to it's fans.
IMO it seems like naruto is still on its way to a conclusion. We still have the naruto/sasuke situation and its getting closer and closer to what feels like a conclusion. Once their situation and madara's situation is settled I expect naruto to end.

With bleach the entire series led up to the fight with aizen, and since that has been settled all we are left with is a vague statement about the soul king and some idea that aizen did all he did in an effort to go against said king. It just seems like a completely new scenario and the way the fight between ichi/aizen ended seemed like a good end to the series. Though personally I would love to see what this soul king is and what uruhara knows about it.

In episode 362, Zaraki proved to his audience and the world itself why he Is The HAXX!!

Shut up and just fight, that's his motto!

Not even Incredible Hulk guy stood an atom of a chance against Kenpachi Zaraki, who is the Force of Nature himself.

I guess no one cares about new bleach episodes anymore. Well, I suppose that's to be expected as many(including myself) expected it to end after Aizen's defeat.

While I appreciate them not meandering along like Dragonball used to, the fact that over half the Fullbringers were defeated in just two episodes makes me think that the war with Azien was the show's high water mark.

They are probably rushing through the chapters since the anime is ending, and they have to close the current arc in March.

For what its worth, the fullbringer battles thus far ended relatively quickly in the manga as well.

Anyone catch the last line in the omake? I didn't see a subtitle for it. Seemed like the only non-humorous omake I can think of, except for maybe the last one with Gin.

363 was full of win. Fullbringers getting owned left and right. The buyakuga battle has me anxious to see what happens, and ginjo.... well i just want to know why he left soul society or whatever since ichigo going into bankai would prolly insta own him like zaraki did to the hulk.

I've more to add about her!

I watched episode 362 after someone in the thread mentioned Kenpachi. That was so freaking bad ass! So, I went to watch 363 as well. 363 can't measure up to that singular Kenpachi moment which lasted less than 20 second, but I did find one scene in episode 363 highly amusing. This chick with motorcycle exhaust pipe coming out of her breast (oh, how low have you fallen in creativity Kubo Tite) says when the grime spews out of her exhaust pipe ( *ahem* focus) and falls on any portion of her body, it makes that portion stronger.



So when I observed that the grime didn't cover a certain portion of her body, I just couldn't help but wonder out loud that if it was deliberate in her part to serve as an open invitation to Renji. Perhaps it didn't allude her of the fact that strengthening her vagina might have a crushing effect (literally) on Renji's psyche if they ever had the chance to get it on. Kubo definitely wrote this story.

Rukia's bit was so cute, however....!

So everyone got stuck in a different world inside the game.
The fights were nice to watch.
All in all a good episode leading in to fast approaching finale.

Believe me, they are not. Zaraki slaughtered the guy in 2-3 pages
Every fight outcome was clear from few pages, Kubo managed to drag it out by making characters chat with each other what in anime doesn't take that much space.
