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.

I agree on most of your points. Bleach peaked fairly early on and it's been dragging its heels for a while now. The SS arc was pretty good, as was most of the Hueco Mundo arc. But then you got into what was basically filler. Personally, I think the cast should have been trimmed down, maybe just have most of the shinigami the main characters interact with be in a single squad, and probably should have gone a different direction on a lot of plot points. I mean, what was the whole point to kidnapping Orihime again? Apparently nothing, as it turned out.

Vic hit it right on the head. Character overload. There's simply too many. And the pattern of Introduce new quirky characters -> characters reveal plot point has been repeated so much by this point, it just doesn't even faze me anymore. I can't even care about Squad Zero, because they're just there to be mysterious and reveal stuff, and then they'll disappear in 20-30 chapters or so. It's a shame.
