Welll im new to this site and a huge bleach and naruto fan and Im starting this discussion out of a curiousity regarding the lack of emotional impact brought on from well a lack of death in bleach. That is to say, that no good characters die in bleach. THis is good and dandy sometimes but when a character gets cut in half (hiyori) punched/hit through the chest (ukitake) cut all up from all angles(renji v byakuya) and stabbed through the gut/heart time and time again lol (hinamori). I mean I cant help but look back on all of these emotional moments ( or what were supposed to be emotional) and feel that they have little or no value and lessen the value of future moments such as these. I mean whats the excitement or suspense in teh plot when a man character gets injured if I know they are gonna be ok regardless of the injury or whats happening. I also cant help but feel that it takes away from the overall drama of the series. It seems to me that when ichigo and his companions continue to rush headlong in to battle or hueco mundo that there should be come casualties or cost to the battles. THere needs to be sacrifice in any good story and with all of this i jsut cant help but wonder why none of the above characters have died. One example would be renji, i mean if he had died fighting byakuya it wouldnt have really impacted the story thus far and it would have made that moment and future mometns more emotional.
Villians defeated/killed- seems to be all of them
Heros killed- none
Please respond and let me know about how you guys feel regarding this. <-- why Kubo why ?
