This anime is a great improvement to the old Bleach show. Showing the gorey scenes without censorship is absolutely cool but also shocking since I grew up watching the old anime. Since this sequel is becoming fully accurate to the manga, I think it's fair. Speaking of the manga, the last arc is kinda bad but hopefully, the anime will fix those problems and make it good and enjoyable now that Kubo's health got better and is supervising the anime. I definitely recommend this to old Bleach fans and new anime fans in general.
