I've been watching more episodes of the anime series, Bleach. I've gotten into the second season.

They're not as good now. There's way too much manga-like effects, and Zap! Zowie! fight scenes, and not nearly enough plot. And Ichigo is turning into way too much of a Marty Stu for my taste.

I still want to see what happens when he rescues Rukia, and whether and how he makes it back to the everyday world, but I probably won't watch much more of it after that.

Slept very late today. Spent way too much time watching episodes of Bleach on hulu.com.

Bleach is an anime TV series. As I've been watching, it's occurred to me that the main difference between American TV and Japanese TV that situation comedies are typical of American TV, but not Japanese TVs. Instead, a lot of anime series are a kind of ongoing situation drama, usually among characters with some kind of martial arts or supernatural background. American TV doesn't have anything like that....

Oh wait. Actually, we do have a type of show that is very like that.

We call it soap opera.

Boy, am I slow sometimes.
