Someone who saw how well Bleach was doing, probably.



Unrelated, but Toonami got the rights to air the Jojo dub starting in October. I need to commit to the subs this summer so I can enjoy it twice through in two languages (and then a third time in print).

    But who would think that? It's been at the bottom of WSJ popularity polls for years now (speaking about the magazine's poll duh). It's only now that Shueisha decided to axe it.

    IDK. Couldn't tell you as I've really not been paying attention to Bleach at all. Actually, I pretty much never have paid attention to it aside from when I got introduced to it nearly 10 years ago on Adult Swim.

      Who prettier and Hotter ? Boa Hancock or Nami.
      Boa Hancock may known as the Most beautiful woman But I find Nami to be more attractive then her.

          I was gonna say... someone had to have dropped out of Bleach much earlier than I had to not remember any of those four characters existed.

            Well, if you're caught up to the Bleach manga where eighty percent of characters have phased out of existence in favor of the mains :P I forgot mostly everyone at this point

              Yeah, Bleach has plenty of those with much more tolerable personalities than Owari no Seraph. Bleach is still terrible, but Owari no Seraph isn't far from Bleach's quality.

              You are lucky. Though I still managed to dodge the bullet as I dropped it before it really went bad. The beginning wasn't even too bad, for a shounen it was pretty interesting and fun. But then Kubo put on his troll mode and Bleach became famous.

                It was never great but I genuinely liked it up until the end of Rukia's rescue.

                Then I enjoyed the /a/ threads for a few years but since it's release day has changed and I'm nolonger online in the mornings I miss them, and have therefore lost interest in the series. Of course I'll finish reading it, probably when it's complete.

                  I'm probably going to watch/read it eventually because I've sunk a decent amount of time into the series in the past. That'll likely be a couple years out, though.

                    I think the world is better off without another Big Three, really.

                      I only watched 1 ep of Attack on Vampires but I can safely say ''no'' just by looking at the character. It's like deviantart was in charge of the design.

                        The only "good" Seraph character isn't even a loli, and she's only "good" because she's a walking meme.

                        All I know about her is that she's got a great smug face. Seriously.

                            That's her entire character. She's smug. 24/7. The only time she's not smug is when she's getting killed for not being the main character so suffering from uselessitis. And she was probably created for baneposting.

                            It's an easy achievement. REMOVE VAMPIRE is the entire character of Yuu, other than acting like a typical shounen protag. Worst is that he reminds me of Sasuke.

                              I now have to witness this disaster of character writing. She'll probably save an otherwise unwatchable show for at least a handful of episodes. Also, I have no idea if the series is unwatchable or not. That's just a guess.

                              So I finished Space Patrol Luluco last night, and those final two episodes were absolutely fantastic.
