Im curious to see what everyone thinks of this new arc

Personally I like it. but all I hear is people complain about how the powers are stupid or how Tite Kubo should of ended the series after defeating aizen. I think its good, it shows that Chad and Orihime are not the only ones that have powers and how Ichigo had his own powers other than the Shinigami powers that should be impossible for a human to obtain.

P.S. Am I the only one that thinks the artwork gets better as the series goes on. Even though a lot of people say his art-style has become generic. I think he just developed his art-style into a more sleek and detailed look

I totally agree. The art has improved a lot over the series. So far I'm not sure what to think about this arc. It could be really good... or really really bad. I just hope it differs from the first time Ichigo had to learn/gain new powers.

I'm thinking this arc is mehhhhh... Bleach is getting boring as time pass and i'm jut reading now not because i like it but because after keep reading for so many years it could be a waste to not see the end. So yeah i was hoping for bleach ended with the last fight with Aizen.

Art get always better with time... you see that in every manga you read. Each year we get new programs and technology to improve our work.

Personally, I believe that the art style was best somewhere around the middle. I don't know why, but now every time I see Ichigo, I keep thinking it's a horse.

it should be called fillerbring...
Anyway, i hope it`s just a small transitional arc, and then the story can focus on some of its mysterious topics (like the spirit king) which have gone without answer for a very long time.

It's decent, but not enough information has been given about the whole situation and what the enemy's goal is to keep me on the tip of my toes yet. But I like it and am reading it nonetheless.

It's okay..not that great/awesome..
I'm more interested in what happened to Grimmjow and what's rukia doing right now.

This arc killed Bleach. The fullbring arc does not fit in w/ the whole storyline at all, and none of the new characters are attractive or interesting.

Things that I don't think fits off the top of my head, although there are probably way more:
-where were the fullbring crowd when Aizen invaded?
-when the Espada arrived w/ Grimmjow and same w/ Ulquiorra, they sensed a certain number of beings w/ above average spiritual power, and they were all targetted
-you may say that they were hidden in their secret bases that hid their reitsu, but really, for that long, over the course of, what, years? And they do end up going and fighting outside.
-this arc ignores/ leaves unexplained the Vizards, which should still be in Karakura town

There's still room for improvement, but it's just a bit off.

It seems to be going alright so far. As good as the last few arcs in my opinion. Tite gave Ichigo the greatest power that he could use, so he needed to lose it in order to keep the story going. But, now a powerless Ichigo just beats up delinquents, so he has to get some kind of new power.

Yeah, there are a few holes, as FormX said. It's like Ichigo lost his power and we were completely left out of the loop on the resolution. How did the captains come back from Hueco Mundo? What happened to Nel? Are the Vizards alive? I kind of assumed that Inoue healed everyone who was hurt during the battles, so they are all fine now...I would really like to find out if this it true at some point.

I think this could have been really good if it was it's own manga but because it's bleach...it just doesn't fit together with the other arcs.
And i'm still pissed at how the other arc ended. Not even the Captain Commander died.

Well, the only reasons I can think of for this arc to exist in the first place are to...
(1) either extend Bleach for as long as possible OR
(2) explain why Chad has powers.

Honestly, none of those reasons are very good, either. I don't anyone would mind why Chad has powers, given that they have been insignificant so far in the series. I don't think anyone would have minded if the main story of Bleach ended as long as some major questions were answered such as who exactly is Kurosaki Isshin, who the "King" of Soul Society is and who are members of the Royal Guard. I'd be a lot happier if Kubo decided to do more side stories (like the negative chapters) rather continue the main storyline.

As for the current arc, my main beef with it is that it belittles the "sacrifice" Ichigo made when he did the "final" Getsuga Tenshou. I don't think it'd be terrible if Ichigo was on the sidelines as the helpless one once in a while. Besides, it'd be nice if the other characters (and there are a shitload of good ones, after all) got some facetime.

I think that Tite Kubo took to long to form something interesting after the Aizen arc and left a few things unexplained. The powers some of the fullbring fighters seem to farfetched for the bleach series like the video game power and the dollhouse power. Even though I have no problem with the powers I think it doesnt fit in the series.

Some of the questions asked are already answered. For example, the visoreds and captains were healed by Squad 4 in fake Karakura town. Orihime didnt heal anyone in fake Karakura town, hence Captain Yamamoto still armless. Captain Mayuri created a opening for everyone to leave Hueco Mundo, Ichigo and the Squad 4 captain went through the prototype.Nel and Grimjow are in some random place in Hueco Mundo, I guess after Kubo ending their battles he assumed there was no reason to show the outcome of the side characters. We still dont know what the current Soul Society is like except for Rukia becoming a Lieutenant; and Soifon and Yamamoto armless. Also when Ulquiorra went to the human world, everyone who was weaker than ichigo was trash to him and Ichigo with his Shinigami was obviously stronger than the fullbringers. Grimjow just wanted to kill anyone with reistu, but he couldnt attack anyone because Ichigo and Rukia would get to him before he could.

I think there are plenty holes that could be easily filled but probably wont be. But with the slow pace this new arc is taking there might be a chance of some of those questions being answered.

I agree that the art is getting better. Though I still get exasperated seeing that one-punch-one-page type of setting.

For the plot itself...let's just say I'm just too tired to complain anymore. It just made a drastic 90 degree turn from the end of aizen's arc. In my opinion, the turn was just too abrupt without wrapping the events with Aizen. It was - Aizen's defeated- yup cut - let's go to Fullbring. Maybe he's doing it on purpose for the plot, but since we haven't seen it yet so I think we can't pass on any judgment yet. And thank God he's starting to give appearances to Urahara and Isshin (Ichigo's dad), so I think the next chapters won't be as unsatisfying as the recent ones. Though I'm biased, I totally hate Inoue's guts so I don't like how she's still on screen that much biggrin

So..overall..it's too early to say anything definite for this arc. Let's just hope he's still got his brilliant mind and take the quality of Bleach back to what it was during Soul Society Arc. We can only hope.

For the Visoreds i meant like they should still be in Karakura town and Ichigo should still be able to see them, since they are in actual bodies, while he is acting like he lost all connections with everyone.

And with all the past events going on no one sensing or mentioning any fullbring users if they existed is just stupid. This just shows that Kubo obviously did not think ahead or plan it out, because he gave out no hints whatsoever, and that tainted the storyline.

Herp derp. Impatient brats can't wait for the plot to develop before calling out plot-holes and what not.

This arc is still better than the "LOL! I have an "I WIN" button and you can't stop me" arc.
