Oh, Tite, how I tried and tried to give you the benefit of the doubt. But now that we are here lets be honest.
ALL IN ALL the Full-Bring arc was a waste of time and space...there was literally NO plot. I thought there would be more to it after Ginjo, but no.
So, following ch.478 ~which I previously advised there was no point reading~ Bleach took a week off, and two weeks later we got ch.479.
Don't read it. You won't miss a thing.
Only thing that may be nice to know ~or a bit frustrating~ is that our lovely vaizards Shinji, Kensei, and Love were shown to have become Soul Society captains. ~REALLY?! After everything that happened??~
The chapter goes on to continue the Goodbyes it started last chapter and ends with a footnote announcing that Bleach will take a 3 week break.
My advice: QUIT!
Bleach should have ended with Aizen and the loss of powers. It was great and it was over. There was much unexplained, such as Ichigo's father ~which they lured us in with in the Full-Bring arc pretending they were going to explain anything!~, but if the mysteries are not to be solved then just stop.
This is seriously just dragging out the inevitable. All good things must come to an end eventually.
Bleach was my first experience with manga and anime and I will always remember it as such.
So for now, Goodbye.
What did you think about this arc? What purpose did it serve but to give Ichigo's powers back? Hated it/ loved it?
