Well? Are they? If you read my Naruto Ch. 360 post you would know that I think Naruto and Bleach are both starting to dwindle. They are still great, and no one can take away the great stories we've encountered so far, but lately it seems both Mangakas are really slacking off. Especially Bleach, the story is starting to get like DBZ episodes used to be. Fight, Fight, Fight, to the next fight...Fight, Fight, nauseum.....

Naruto could stand to step it up too. I must say I was really excited about Sasuke/Orochimaru fight a few weeks ago, but then.....oven in a few panels! eek Totally lame.
what do you think?

Life is tough......but it's tougher if you're stupid.

Do these things get worse or do we just get tired of them? Case in point: I haven't heard a good word about Inuyasha for a very long time.

As for the Orochi and Sasuke fight... I liked that fight. Sasuke got to look overwhelmingly strong, and yet kept his mystique... which he quickly went and lost in the following fight. laugh

About the animes:

The latest bleach spoiler mini-arc about that special kind of hollow was pretty boring in my opinion. Well can't help that. But the latest episode of bleach was quite refreshing (ep. 132). I was waiting for a laid-back episode such as that I think.

The onliest thing that I have to say about the latest naruto-episodes is that I'm getting the impression that they're really stretching each event in the manga. They spent a whole episode on the 'buttonhook-entry' and yet another on the "enemy trap". If you look at it Deidara and Scorpio-guy have been standing pretty static over there for nearly 2 episodes >_>
This can be a false impression I'm getting, but still... I don't remeber these scenes taking so long in the manga as they're taking in the anime. Stretching to the max I'd say.

About the mangas:

Bleach is going DBZ-style... I've heard that a lot but basicly that's something we see in a lot of shounen manga's; except it's not always about fighting.
Anyway I don't mind it. I just want more faster cool It's probably because we see little progress of the fight each week that we get a bit cranky about the whole thing. Same goes for Naruto. Great series in my opinion but it's a long wait for each fight/event to end.

I think it is also that we just get used to the stuff and bored after a while. I would love to see Bleach have a bit more Character Interaction before everybody meets, greets, split up to fight untill then unknown enemies.

I agree ( haven't watched the animes, am only talking about the mangas ) that both Naruto and Bleach are losing Steam. I use to read each chapter as soon as it was released, now i wait one or two or three months and read a few at a time.

I agree with Bleach, but I began losing interesent around chapter 200, I`m still reading it because it's entertaining but hope it will become better again. Same goes imo for One Piece because I don't see any development in it, neither for the characters nor for the main story. But I absolutly disagree with Naruto, for me it becomes better and better with every chapter and unlike most other shounen/action mangas the characters and story are developing.

I still think Naruto is on an enjoyable level. I've never stopped looking forward to next week's chapter. I mean, at least it finally feels like there's some progress being made in part 2.

But Bleach is reeeeeeally wearing my patience thin. Hueco Mundo has been nothing but a bad parody of Soul Society. If it doesn't turn around VERY soon, and with that I mean the arc ending after Ichigo vs Grimmjow, I'm selling my books.
Though I guess, it's already come to a point where I've given up hope.
