I enjoy watching anime. Currently, we’re watching Bleach. It is over all a pretty good show, but its very hard to see how one season relates to the others, or even if we should call them seasons.
Watching episode 171, it seems far removed from the last episode we saw (over a month ago, granted). Only the two main characters remain. Of course, I was reminded that when we first started watching this show, there were sentient stuffed animals (not quite, but it is how I think of them) but they have not been seen in quite some time, either.
