I really love bleach!
Sure it has it's problems here and there and it lost a lot of popularity after the anime stopped airing, but I still love both the manga and anime a great deal.
The battles are sweet
The animation is nice
character development is well done ( if we exclude filler seasons of the anime which I deny it's existence of in the first place )
entertainment value is high
the only thing I can currently complain about is the speed on which romance develops but that is mainly due to me being a romance fanboy.
The entire theme of Shinigami has pulled me in this show and hnnng I am glad it did, at some point in the series the battles are on dbz level but then based around swords. Sure there are enemies with other type of weapons but it's mainly about slashing swords of all shapes and sizes in different story scenarios.
My favorite arcs are the Karakura Town arc and the Rukia Rescue mission arc.
for now I give it an 8/10 this is subject to change depending on how the story ends.
