    Putting updates on anime/manga i watch/read here. Yeah i know i have done it a couple of times before but now it should work out since i will now just take it as it comes without thinking too much into it.

    Caught up on everything i follow aside from Dragonball Super.

    Going to watch Hunter X Hunter probably after finishing Bleach. (On episode 344 and going to read post-anime)

    Decided to just wait out those two non anime/manga until their respective seasons are over so priority now is finishing Bleach.

    Finished fullbringer arc. It was mediocre. Not as bad as i have heard but there was nothing special about it either. I rate it a 5/10.

    Yeah, it was nowhere near as memorable or hype as arrancar or soul society. Feel this arc would had been much better as a breather between soul society and arrancar tbh. Well lets see what the Bleach war is like.

    hmm you're right that's actually not a bad place to put in fullbringer.:hmm Having Ichigo go back to basics after beating what was practically the final villain of Bleach was just dumb.

    On episode 13 on Trigun (Still like it)

    On chapter 617 for Bleach (Still actually like the war, it's pretty good)

    Planning to finish both at the same time.

    As for afterwards. First i'm going to catch up on everything i want to catch up on and then i watch/read more finished stuff.

    Yeah did not love it but could had really disliked it since it's a old one with very outdated animation but the story was good enough for me with a good mix of comedy/excitement to make it solid.

    There is also a movie that was made decade later that's based around that adaptation.

    Finished Bleach. Enjoyed the war for the most part up till the very rushed climax which definitely dragged it down. I rate the series a 8/10 overall. First arc was cool, Soul Society was boss, arrancar was very good, Fullbringer was meh and Thousand Year Blood War was good up till the climax.

    Hunter X Hunter up next.

    Oh you finally finished bleach. I felt like too many of the fights in the final arc later on were either rushed or poorly written to the point where it kinda brought down my overall score of the series.

    Hope you really enjoy HxH.

    HxH is what a battle shonen manga would be like without editorial interferences. This becomes apparent especially later on in the series.

    So no superfluous screentime for fan favorites, unpredictable, not afraid to kill off characters, darker/more gore, a lot more story focused, no shounen trope cliches etc.
