Much to my amusement, I heard friends of mine recently describing their relationship with Bleach as "the world's longest one night stand." That is, Sensei has this habit of delaying gratification--as with the mysterygami episode and now with the invasion of the Seireitei, he sets us up to expect something and then switches modes. One friend compared it to a lover who gets you all hot and bothered and suddenly goes ADHD and tries something else (like Allon being Allon, a fugly fodder Quincy who no matter how much he reveals about the Quincy is still fugly fodder, and new characters no one really cares much about). Damn it all--audiences want to see the destruction of SOUL SOCIETY!

Anyway, I was wondering about how people view their relationships with the manga vis a vis romantic metaphors.
