Bleach is over. Though it wasn't always a great ride, many of us looked forward to watching Bleach each week and now have a gaping hole in the people beating the crap out of each other for 24-minutes segment of our weekly anime schedule. So my question:
What's your replacement for Bleach?
I started watching Hunter x Hunter over the weekend and while it's good series in it's own right, it's not as action packed as Bleach by any stretch. I've seen some scenes here and there that looked nice, but nothing great yet. Additionally, it's much more of an adventure show than an action series and I'm beginning to think super well animated fights isn't something it's going to deliver on. After poking around on the web I decided to try out One Piece again, but the episode I was going to start at (227, which from what I've heard is where there is a noticeable bump in the fight animation, which was what burned me on the series initially) isn't up on Hulu yet and there is about a 150 episode gap located right where I want to pick it up at. Fairy Tail never did it for me so that one is a no go. I've seen Toriko in some sakuga/MAD videos and it seemed pretty cool, but I'm not sure if it's streaming or not.
What other long running shounen series are there that are
- currently airing
- packed with as much action as Bleach
- available for legal streaming
