    People love to crap on Kubo but I would put the Soul Society arc up there with just about any shonen arc I've read in terms of quality. There is a reason why it was a lot of people's gateway series....

    Re: Bleach Discussion █: Soul Society, but not!

    I'm looking forward to this. There were a lot of cool scenes and I think seeing the arc animated will be a lot of fun.

    Re: Game of Thrones (tv show thread)

    That's a fair point. I can agree with that. While I don't think the series made it clear that her concern for the women the Dothraki were raping was fake, or that her desire to stamp out slavery was...

    Re: Shokugeki no Soba is a「Thread」where the title won't change as you expect

    That's fair, I forgot about his match with Etsuya so he isn't completely out of place. But my greater point was that these characters don't feel like the 10 best chefs in a school that's supposed to...
