Greetings, everyone.

If these kind of posts aren't allowed, mods, by all means, feel free to delete this. And I apologise for the following sappiness...

So I stumbled upon my folder of Bleach scans, to print&color someday, and I was hit with nostalgia. I stopped reading Bleach around chapter 560 something, due to the endless fights and sudden and contracdictory power-ups. But seeing those images I had saved for future use, I remembered how much I loved Tite Kubo's characters, and how much Bleach (specially Rukia) influenced me since I was a tween. I remember loving the fandom, how organizes it was, how it was able to be serious and make fun of the series (the times I had at capslock_bleach...).

Is it worth picking up Bleach again?
I read a spoiler somewhere that Aizen had risen a 2nd or 3rd time (that guy must me immortal or smth)... How is the plot? Does it get better, or keeps going downhill, like Naruto (*shudders*)?? And there's character development, or is like Naruto again, where there's so many characters that there's no time or space for them to evolve and for us to know each one properly, so we only get glimpses? Or they simply vanish when they're no longer needed, like Ulquiorra and Grimmjow and others.

Thank your for your time

It's a bit batshit crazy right now but the worldbuilding is actually decent in the last arc so far. And it brings back a lot of favorite (sadly neglected) characters.
You already know the nature of Bleach: you see 20 new characters within like 3 chapters, then 16 die quickly. Personally I can't not read it, I'm too invested in the ultimate outcome haha. I know it's meant to end soon (yes??) so I'm reading til the end.

PS someone you mentioned may have reappeared recently ;)
Totally worth another try. I'm not going to say every chapter or every fight is stellar, but it's definitely been enjoyable (at least for me) overall. And now you'd have the benefit of reading all the chapters together rather than having to wait for their releases. There have been some really good moments - particularly after chapter 600.
