So apparently Tite Kubo said in an interview a few days ago that he lost most of his notes for Bleach, particularly those that covered the latter half of the series. He wasn't able to remember what he had written once he got to that point, so he had to wing it. Kind of a poor excuse, but it does make a bit of sense considering how bad the latter half of the series was.
While I am willing t believe that that did happen, there were a lot more reasons why the ending of Bleach was bad. Although I am curious, do you know if he said when he lost them?

I would guess around the start of the Soul Society Arc.

Actually, he apparently lost them before the series even started. I understand that manga authors have very busy schedules once a series gets going, but one would think he'd have had the time to actually, you know, come up with something else before getting to the latter chapters in the series.

Here's a link:

finished Ys Origin.  Hell of a game.  Reminds me a lot of Oath in Felghana (which is a very very good thing) and has supplanted Memories of Celceta for 2nd best Ys titles ever. 

but you can't really go wrong with any tbh.  I'd love to actually play V someday too.

Definitely buying Lacrimosa of Dana at launch.

Please don't feed the trolls. No matter how harmless they may seem.

Says the guy who already brought the paddle. :P

Now and Then, Here and There was horribly uncomfortable for me to watch, and I can't even fathom how you guys made it past episode 2. That's one of those series where the shock value alone makes it a hateable series, yet people keep talking about it like it's some grand achievement of humanity or something. I'm pretty sure I could turn on the news and find 5 more "grand achievements" going on in the world right now if that were the case. Seriously, all I saw was horrible things happening to young people for no good reason. I don't care if it has some deeper meaning going on underneath it all, I don't need to be shown that level of depravity ever in my life. Period.

so it seems they're trying something similar to ps plus with a selection of games you have access to while you have an active humble monthly subscription. I bought last months to get Stellaris so I'm going to try Strike Suit Zero out.

Twelve Kingdoms sounds like a story I would like. I love the concept of being transported to another world, but I prefer it when it's used more present a fish-out-of-water situation for the protagonist, or just to present an interesting world to explore.

The 12 Kingdoms is one of my top 10 fav series. Its fantastic. Just don't watch the dub.

I didn't like Now and There, Here and There so much because I hated the MC.

Makes no difference to me.  Wendee Lee is my Haruhi.

Yeah, no. Unfortunately, we've already seen most of what Haruhi had to offer with the first season of the anime, as the rest of the LNs sounded more like what the second season provided (i.e. the non-Haruhi members getting into weird situations like Endless Eight while Haruhi herself becomes more of a plot device, a walking Deus Ex Machina if you will).

Can't say I agree with that.  And Endless Eight aside (which got way more time in the anime than the original novels...), I did like S2 anyway.

The main reason we haven't gotten more Haruhi is because of controversies around Aya Hirano (Haruhi's VA).  Sad but true.  And it's hard to imagine anyone else voicing Haruhi at this point...

Nah, those LNs were great.  Haruhi and Kyon have one of my favorite friendship/relationships I have ever experienced in fiction, even if its not portrayed all that well at times.

She's definitely a plot device, yes.  But she never stops being a great character.
