With Bleach taking a short three week break, I thought that this woule be a perect time to discuss the series and its state of affairs ( namely, where is the story going ).
First off, I must say that I have a love hate relationship with the series. I find myself really hating the series when I read it each week and constantly wonder why I still bother too... but on the other hand, when I read it in large chunks, I do tend to enjoy it.
Even with that said, I do wonder exactly where the story is going. I mean, with the whole Aizen thing over with and there no clear cut villain or "end game" in sight.. I am left baffled at what could happen or come next.
Sure there is always something that can be done with Isshin and even Zero Squad... but with really no foreshadowing ( with a clear cut enemy or deathly situation ahead), it would seem somewhat forced and just done for pure fanservice at this point. Not that it would really bother me, mind you. :p
But still, the question remains, can the series continue like this? Even after the SS arc was over, there was a new direction incorporated and that was Aizen... here we have zilch.
