Challenge: Favorite shounen anime
My favorite Shounen anime comes from the Big Three Shounen: One Piece, Naruto and Bleach.
Bleach: Bleach is my favorite simply because I was able to catch up with it and not lose interest. When I started it back in high school, I wasn’t a real big fan of Shounen so I dropped it. After seeing some of the fight scenes some years later (Ichigo vs. Byakuya/Kenpachi/Kain/Aizen/Ulquiorra etc.) I got hyped into watching it. In my first year of college I downloaded most of the seasons and pulled all-nighters until my mother had to take my laptop. It was bad. I was just really Bleach hungry.
The content and sequence of action was really well put together. I couldn’t get enough of the fight scenes and the unleashing of bankai forms. For once, the fillers didn’t annoy me but were actually very hilarious and there was still some amount of character development being done; especially when the Zanpakutōs got their own episodes. I just loved everything about Bleach, the movies, watching Ichigo grow as a Shinigami. Everything! The Xcution season wasn’t too bad. I was a little sad that Ichigo lost his hollow form and there’s so much going on in the manga now. I really need to catch up.
I don’t want to ramble so I’ll just leave it there.
