    I stopped watching Bleach
    the episodes are getting more and more disgusting and poor emotive.
    The story is a crap on the manga I was expecting more from Ichigo vs Aizen and everything finshed like shit without mention that it lost every logical point of the story, it was supposed on the story line that Ichigo was a creation of Aizen of something like this, why Urahara, Yoruichi an Ichin didnt unleashed the Bankai.....

    I dont know you guys, but i enjoy the first 70 eps. Now is a shit!!!:shadedshu

    :On my opinion, he is trying to keep on with Naruto and One piece.

    That's why i (think i) said that bleach now resembles dragonball z. Ichigo vs Aizen is similar to Goku vs Frieza, which was a perfect finale but the series still went on just so it could sell more.:shadedshu
    But of course Goku vs Frieza was better.:pimp:

    I'm going to have to stop myself from watching ongoing anime (again) because i have a years worth of exams to do in January:mad:.....
    ....buuut I'm still watching finished anime series.:D and on that note/rant thingy i finished monster the other day and it's awesome. Even though it has a seemingly slow pace every episode just suck you in. it's one of those "more about the journey than the destination" story's.

    Is what i said abstract enough or should i put spoiler tags on?

    I don't read any of those anymore.

    Also, what happened then when Dragonball stopped in 1995 after 11 years? Did manga suddenly die? Um, no.

    Looking at Weekly Shounen Jump's current lineup, most of them are quite new although can easily replace any of the three. A special mention to Bakuman as well, considering it's about a mangaka and his partner author in middle-school planning to get published in Shounen Jump (weirdly, in the anime they can't say that so it's "Shounen Jack").

    Since the early 1990's japan has been in a state of financial crisis. For you yanks reading its the same thing that happened in America recently, except they still haven't recovered.

    It's mentioned in so many anime and manga. "its so hard to get jobs these days" etc. Hell the situation even inspired a manga called Akumetsu.

    Its probably not as bad as its made out to be, But the people running all the companies over there are shit scared of their markets collapsing.

    If you spend more time reading commentary on recent anime and manga and watched/read less actual anime/manga you will find that the common opinion is that nothing NEW is being produced, more and more remakes, sequals etc. And manga is being adapted earlier and earlier.

    Hollywood is in the same boat. Hollywood is making more and more money every year. But how many of are going to argue that that isnt because of the sequels/adaptions they keep pumping out?

    About 70 eps is where I started to not like it anymore. I think i made it to 80eps before I dropped it, because it became crap. It's amazing how badly they can screw something up that started so well.

    Nice try, but that is not the case. While it is financially based, earlier adaptations of manga and the supposed trend of remakes "which is also untrue" has nothing to do with a lack of funds. As an American, you get a distorted view of the state of anime because you are apart of their secondary audience. Anime is not made for Americans, America does not provide a comparatively sizable income compared to Japan only titles, and they don't really care about what we get to see. Anime you receive in America is purchased by licensing groups and sold through American distributors. The market only appears stagnate because they are selling what people by the most, which unfortunately, is very similar to other popular titles from a few years back.

    If you are looking for more interesting and unique anime titles, they you should look outside your norms. Try a different source for info. about new and old titles, watch anime from a genre you normally don't watch, or just try watching a title that is like your favorite genre but may say it is not what it appears to be on the surface.

    For more details about the current state of anime, I suggest checking viable anime news sites that are unrelated to 4chan or crunchyroll. 4chan for obvious reasons and crunchroll still has an agenda they need to look out for. On the latter, while the news may be true, the articles are often selective and self serving.

    For more details about anime, its current state, and remakes in particular, I have provided some reading material below.

    The remakes for targeting a new audience. True for the most part. The point I was actually trying to convey was there is very few NEW titles coming out. Not that it was due to money, But I can see where the confusion came from.

    Actually im not American, and im aware of how the licensing thing works especially since In Australia Madman wont license any anime until its been licensed in America so they can poach the translation... im also quite curious as to how the American market of anime/manga is even relevant to what I said.

    I WAS talking about the state of affairs IN japan.

    Also who the hell Is John (from the links)? and why on earth was 4chan mentioned? Why does John have more credibility as an 'expert' than myself, Mussels and everyone's favorite human wiki DJisis?

    P.S. I love debate and discussion.

    have you read the new arc in bleach? ichigo fighting crime with no powers. BORING. name a fighting anime that succeeded without crazy moves.

    ...hmm... i keep getting sidetracked from the original point I was trying to make... I think I need to lay off the coffee... I just realised i posted 3 short rants.

    sorry everyone.:confused:

    I agree with what you said. It can't compete. Publishers are probably pressuring him to keep it going. They dont want their meal tickets to end.

    As ive previously mentioned. Not much good new talent coming out, just more releases of old stuff. And a struggling economy that keeps the pressure to succeed on.

    There have been as many 1-hit wonder mangaka as there have been bands. I'm sure hes worried his next project will fail.
