I don't think I could agree more. At the very least, it provides me with a little more insight as to why I'd sooner give up Bleach over the permanent absence of a single character as oppose to quitting over an undesired direction the plot takes.

This may seem dissapointing, but it turns out Chad's heritage comes off as more of an afterthought. Supposedly at a comic-con interview one of the attendees asked about Chad's background. His answer was "It wasn't intentional," Kubo replied. When I first started drawing Chad, it just seemed that he should come from a Mexican heritage."

With regards to #1, I'm very curious and would appreciate it if you could elaborate when you get a chance. I'm familiar with the franchise to the extent the movies cover. But if the "galaxies fiasco" has to do with the novels, then I can't make the connection at all w/ regards to Bleach.

As for possibility #2, does this mean you'd actually quit the series if the prediction of this current arc being Aizen's bankai turns out to be true?
