    Default Lack of love story

    Does it bother anyone that bleach has diverged from a character developing anime into an all out dragon ball z type show?

    In the first 2 arcs there was a possibility of love between Rukia and Ichigo with a sufficient amount of action on the side. When she gets captured and the quest to take her back began...I will admit I was hooked and spent day and night trying to plow through episodes to see what happens.

    When Ichigo and Rukia finally reunite...it was cool, but not the heartfelt event I was hoping for...as the arcs progress, ichigos and rukias relationship are not even mentioned anymore and it has made me lose interest ever since although I still watch the anime.

    Bleach was always a DBZ type series.

    It's an action/battle series targeted published in Jump and targeted at younger teenage boys. It knows its target audience, and it has absolutely no reason to have any sort of romantic side to it.

    You are missing the point of my post...yes it is a "dbz type" show but that doesnt mean it has to be fighting non stop..I think a lot of ppl were drawn into the anime from ichigos and rukias relationship.

    DBZ sells, DBZ sells well. The formula allows for an insane amount of episodes which rakes in money. And as far as I can tell it never had romance. It hinted at it but that's all it ever was. Even that is barely there.

    Yes, but that doesn't change the fact that the author intended to make a battle series for 13 year old boys, to be published in a young boys' manga magazine. To 13 year old boys reading something for the angst and action of it all, violence is off-putting. He (and his editors) are simply targeting their audience.

    As I said before, there is nothing about Bleach that warrants a love story.

    When I started my journey with Bleach I thought it was one of the best anime i've ever seen, and that was a long time ago. Now I don't feel the same vibe from bleach as before. I have never even felt a romantic vibe from bleach, probably never will either. But I wonder how Tite Kubo is going to accomplish the ending of bleach.

    It'll end with Ichigo being the most powerful being in the universe. That's really the only outcome that happens in shows like DBZ and Bleach. No one ever dies, ok technically they do but you know what I mean. No one ever dies who doesn't come back.

    I agree. the beginning felt kinda like a strong friendship and/or relationship with Rukia and Ichigo... and yes, as the story did grow, so did the fighting. I guess thats how Tite is making his money. Bleach isn't for everyone I guess.

    I actually remember reading an interview that was in Shonen Jump. Tite Kubo said "I don't want to make Bleach into a love story because there are much more exciting things about their personalities and things that they can do instead of getting into the romance aspect of their relationships."
    So there isnt any intention of making them a couple. At least for now.

    DBZ is good on its own, it doesn't need a form of love going on in it. The action is enough to keep it going. Same concept with Bleach. They don't need a love story, it'll just ruin it. Romance, unless it's a romance type anime, always ruins the show. At least to me it does.

    The point is, that on their own, they're good anime.

    The world is ending and Ichigo won't even take the time to compliment Orihime on the hair she spend days fixing up for him. It's misogyny at its worst.

    Although there *could* be possibilities for romance in Bleach, I for one *never* saw it as a series that would have it at *all.* I think that in truth, any true romantic flings would probably take away from the gears of the story. What little of it is left...

    However-I also agree that the halt on character development was a bad idea. Endless page after page after page, scene after scene battles and fighting does get mind numbingly boring and dull. That's why I could never get into DBZ. It took an entire three episodes just to finish one faaaaaar too long battle with one guy. I was rather disenheartened when Bleach started to do that too...But being a good sameritan I kept reading it, and will keep reading till it ends.


    EDIT: Never mind about the little left bit...it's Over. o.o The last chapter was posted today. And it was anti-climatic too..._-_
