Thats true. But I guess people are more concerned about the story of these "fillers" rather than character development.

Naruto's fillers for example, was mostly focusing on char development. Just that the story wasn't....good enough. Also, people feel that these char developments in the fillers cant be taken as canon(I guess that means official) information.

Bleach seems to be on the char development path though, with episode 64 having more involvement with Ishida, Chado and Inoue.

Personally I wouldn't mind filler arcs IF they still have the ambience of the manga. I hate it when they deviate so far out that it's almost as though they're undermining the canon universe.

Filler arcs, if done well, gives Bleach fans an added bonus when watching the anime. As a manga reader, anything new added to the anime without spoiling the story is like having an extra christmas gift =D.

In this case, costume design mostly.

Not that fillers are always bad, but they usually stick out.
Costume design? I didn't see any difference in their clothing from, say, the "Prologue" arc.

Please, tell us how the atmosphere is supposed to feel like when the characters are back on Earth if it can be the same as the last arc.

I have no idea how a show like this would even lose it's normal "ambience". I haven't watched the Naruto "filler" arc, but I do recall that the Garlic Jr arc in DBZ was a filler(or so I heard) and it seemed pretty normal to me. And I don't see how arcs like this aren't canon.

Take it from me, a non-manga reader. This arc is about as normal as Bleach gets.

as for now there isn't anything missing that would make manga's continuation imposible if filler's character won't turn into normal souls at the end or something than they still can be shown like too weak to help than

Even if that is the end of this particular story arc, I doubt that it is the end of the filler. That isn't likely to be enough episodes to give the manga enough of a head start. Besides, I suspect from manga information that we need more filler. Kubo Tito really did a great job of setting up the filler. It is more as if this "filler" was excised from the manga, than added to the anime. When reading the manga it really felt as if something was left out. Manga readers can see the shape of that hole.

Here's my evidence if you don't mind a very little bit of manga spoiling. (It's quite minor.)

Spoiler for manga at end of spoiler arc:

The filler ep so far is actually good. Compared to most this is watchable and has at least a 60 to 70 percent of not turning for the worse.

You've only seen a single episode so far. That is hardly good enough to prove that the original story is going to be good. At least wait until we find out what the plot is before you say this. It might be the lamest thing you've ever seen in your life.

I'm hopeful that it is good, but let's not throw our hats into the air yet.

Edit: This is an original story arc, so lets not use that insulting word. At least let's not use the f-word unless it seems to be worth insulting.

How about calling it an "original story" Original does sound much better, doesn't it?

We're now in an original story arc!!

PS. I like this idea enough that I'll go back and edit my last post. I'm going to stop throwing around the f-word unless it turns out to be garbage.

I'm kind of looking forward to a filler. It seems to have a story line coming on. I will like to see how this developes.

Not all fillers are bad. Sometimes you come accross those Diamonds in the rough.

I think your suggestion should make today's goal a cinch. And maybe it will help dispell some of the bad publicity around the f-word. Of course, if this original story sucks, I'm switching back to the f-word in a hurry.

Rofl. You make the f-word sound much worst than it actually is.

Blame wingdarkness. It is his pet peeve, not mine. I'm just having fun with his crusade.
