It is not nearly as niche. But please, show me all the nonexistent sales numbers demonstrating Bleach has sold more volumes than One Piece worldwide. Show me all the revenue from the anime Bleach doesn't have. Show me all the merchandise sales from the countries that don't actually offer much merchandise compared to Japan at all. Show me all the money generated from the Bleach movies that do not for a second live up box office-wise to One Piece movies.
Please, Ben, tell us all where this imaginary Bleach revenue you've pulled out of your ass comes from. It's one thing to say Bleach is secretly being killed by Shonen Jump's vast conspiracy to screw with you personally, but it's entirely another to say the series EVEN THEN still outgrosses the most popular manga series of all time. These things do not co-exist when Japan is the primary source of revenue for all this stuff, so which is it? Was its financial downfall an evil plot or is it doing just fine? You want Bleach to be a victim of some tin foil hat conspiracy bullshit, but you also can't bear to admit it's less successful than something like One Piece out of nonsensical fanboy pride, even when that flies in the face of all goddamn logic. This is finally just COMPLETELY INSANE.
Like I said, I'm not one of those people who lives or dies by how popular series they like are. It's good enough for me that something I'm following doesn't get cancelled.
Shueisha didn't f**k over Bleach to screw with me personally. They did it to screw Kubo and screw with the fans. They didn't want Bleach to do well. That's why they stopped promoting it and giving it covers. They played favorites, like lots of companies do. It's well known that Kubo doesn't get along with his editors. The magazine just didn't like Kubo and wanted him gone.
Except you clearly are since you decided to protest One Piece being more popular, and now you know you've dug this hole too deep since this post doesn't actually address anything I said about how that's completely ridiculous and you think everyone is too stupid to notice you backpedaling and ignoring the things you can't refute.
Uh, no. I've said on countless occasions that I don't care how popular or well something I like does so long as it does well enough to sustain itself and not get cancelled. For example, I was fine with the level of popularity Star Wars had before the Special Editions and Prequels came out and re-popularized it. It was like being in a cult back then. Now everyone likes Star Wars. Either way suits me fine though I suppose it is nice to have new movies and TV series. Now, V and Revolution ended up getting cancelled (they got screwed to an extent, like Bleach, but still), so that pissed me off. Now, if One Piece started sagging in sales and fell from its perch some One Piece fans would start cutting. That was an illusion created by Kyoka Suigetsu. I see you are the one ignoring things you know you can't refute, however.
Depends on if the cards have special powers, lol. I'm guessing not.
Watch the episodes. If you just watched what Toonami showed, you'd know that. I watched it when it was on and I watched Y Ruler of Time's reviews of the manga and it's pretty much just more of the same shit. I mean how can we forget the infamous switching to the left hand? Ryoma is left-handed and plays right-handed to handicap himself. He'll switch to his left hand if the opponent is actually a worthy challenge.
Doubt any of that will happen since sports manga and anime aren't popular in America.
I have diverse tastes, but I don't have any use for trashy shows like Food Wars. And even if it wasn't fanservice-laden... it's about f**king cooking.
Like maybe a year before she was in The Mask Cameron diaz was in playboy. They were pretty good in the 90's, Drew barrymore, Pam anderson , They tried to get Dolly parton when she turned 50, but she said no. I don't know about anyone else but i would have liked to see that. Now they're not even doing nudes anymore.
They got Charisma Carpenter from Buffy, smokin hot =P
They're basically done. The magazine is under a million subs and most of those are people with auto renewal.
