Seriously, what the fuck? The episodes doesn't actually start until after the five minute mark? Tack the ED, preview, and gag onto the other end, and there's no show left.
Padding, as they desperately try to stop from over taking the manga in the middle of an arc where filler is next to impossible.
Do we really need another bleach thread?
I don't understand the shonen mentality. If they don't have any material, DON'T MAKE AN EPISODE. They work 20 hours a day, 7 days a week; they deserve a vacation.
They risk losing people's attention if they stop. Half the reason Dragonball GT exists is because they wanted to keep the fans around while they worked on the various DBZ movies.
Japan is a very ADD country.
they could go to a bimonthly schedule.
TV doesn't work that way. You pay for a timeslot in advance. If you need to take a lot of time off, you'll be taking at least a whole coul (13 weeks) off while some other show takes the slot.
Im sure with all the money they have made off bleach they could work SOMETHING out.
I suppose. But you never know what kind of restrictions or whatnot the broadcasting companies might have. Or the sponsors might be like, "fuck you, we want weekly damnit."
Even once every-other week, they'd be catching up to the manga. General rule of thumb for shoenen is 3 manga chapter to one animu episode. So each episode aired would gain on the manga by one. And that doesn't take into account weeks were the manga-ka doesn't release or takes a break or whatever...
what a shock
I do hope they don't have all that shit on the US release if it does get to the point of ep 163. I also notice that they keep explaining the same fights on what happen 3 times in 160-163, its all the same.
yeah i saw the GLOTENERIA bit like 5 times
/a/ should be entirely made up of bleach
You guys know more fillers start next month right?
No, You Wa Shock!
FUCK YES! I LOVE FILLERS!
