I'm not sure what to laugh at first: The spoiler, the tailpipes, the mural, or the taillights.
to be honest, the airbrushing isnt that good XD
but you dont see a lot of custom paint jobs here and when i saw this one, of an obscure (relatively) anime, i was like wtf *snap*
I like the taillights.
The rest is excessive.
Somebody should get two of those really big rolleyes emoticon out... One for the car, and one for Bleach. Bleach should just be retitled "Anime: Generic"
Bleach is a HORRIBLE. HORRIBLE anime.
WHAT?! LIES! LIES!
It's pretty good compared to all the other anime they have out now :Full Metal Alchemist, Naruto, Gundam Seed and Gundam Seed Destiny. Now those are crap.
Now, don't you be dissin' my giant effin' robots!
IMO, I just don't care for Bleach because, well, I've seen the SAME basic series in Yu Yu Hakashu, Ruroni Kenshin, Inuyasha, or damn near any of the Shonen Jump adaptions. Hell, damn near every long term anime series seems to follow the same basic pattern anymore
word. its pretty formulaic.
Well you're half right. Naruto and FMA are brilliant.
SEED wasn't that bad. Destiny was garbage though.
In the car's defence, it likely came with those taillights and the spoiler. The picture and exhaust, that's different.
He does like Bleach.
Too bad he doesn't have any taste, though.
That car... yuck!
As for the Bleach anime, it is formulaic, but what is there is good IMO.
Full Metal Alchemist is the only anime on that list that is win material. All the others are crap, but Bleach is also crap. Formulaic generic anime = BAD.
But anime in general in recent years has been total crap. I have yet to find something I really want to watch that does not begin with the words "Ghost in the Shell". Well, there was Appleseed, but I just got that movie for the graphics. Story was only okay.
Bleach is formulaic, but I happen to LIKE that formula, so yay me. Something about the Shonen formula brings me back to happier times. That said, for a often repeated formula, it's a pretty good example of it.
And for those who only want 'original' shows, WTH are you watching anime? Most anime is built up from earlier shows. There is VERY little truly innovative in anime.
The car? That's just tacky.
I like animes that're "short and sweet". Mostly movies and OAVs. If it's a TV series that is about 1 or 2 seasons that works too, but if it keeps going on and on and on, I'm going to loose it, especiall if the show has the same fight spanning across multiple episodes. Then the show feels like it's halted it's progress for a fight that doesnt even look that good.
I like blood and violence, alot, thats one of the main reason why I like anime but I will loose patience if it drags on. Best way I can describe what I feel is that some shows just seem to be made for one dude fighting another dude, just like WWF.
Yay for Bleach. Too bad the art on the car is crap.
Dragged put fight scenes that span several episodes are usually the result of adapting a manga that hasn't finished its run yet. Oftentimes a weekly anime is based on a monthly manga story. If one episode covered as much story as one chapter, obviously the show is going to overtake the manga and run out of story. There are three basic options:
1. End the series, possibly to return after giving the managa some time to progress.
2. Draaaaaaag the story out. Stretching out the fight scenes is one of the more common ways of doing this. The reason it seems like it halts the story is because it does. That's exactly why they do it in the first place.
3. Make stuff up that wasn't in the manga. This "filler" content usually sucks pretty bad, and because they usually try not to impact the story, it still feels like the plot isn't going anywhere, despite not being stuck in one fight.
Frequently you'll get a combination of both 2 and 3, including Dragonball Z, Bleach, and Naruto. FMA and Trigun took option 3, but decided never to come back from the new story, and just veered off from the manga completely. It did keep the shows from getting slower, though. Rurouni Kenshin tried to take option 2 and come back from it, but the show was cancelled before they could return to the manga material because the filler stories sucked too much. Examples of option 1 include Berserk, Hunter x Hunter, and Initial D.
While opening this thread, I assumed it had to do with some guy drinking a jug of bleach (javex). I had now clue there was a cartoon called "Bleach"
