How hard would it be to pick up Bleach now?

I've been reading it online, so I'm not sure.

When I say pick up, I don't mean buy, I mean get into the series.

I'd say it's best to start at chapter one. There are a lot of series terms that are built up over time (Shinigami, Hollow, Zanpakuto, Arrancar, Espada, Quincy, Menos, ect), that it's best to start from the beginning (and it makes all the revelations all that more hard hitting).

Best of all, the manga has none of the filler

Shinigami, I'll have to get rid of my Death Note definition of one...

It shouldn't be hard, the real question is will you just get bored and not enjoy the series. Try reading/watching up to the end of the Rescue Rukia Arc if you didn't enjoy it by then, then just quit.

Fan translations can be a bit annoying, when I first watched Death Note via Netflix it had the official subs, and now the I'm rewatching it, over a year later, it feels a bit off since it's a fansub.

Depends on the fansub group really. There's a lot of decent fansub groups out there that even do a better job than official subs, except for Hadena, never ever watch Hadena's sub, you've got a better chance understanding the anime without subs than reading the mess they do.

Yeah, in my experience, it's best to stick with the professionals. One Piece has some decent fansubs, but I'm really looking forward to the day when I rewatch this show on DVD.

I think I finally understand the origins of my frustration with the Sword Art Online anime:

For those that can't watch the video, let me give you the brief summary; Reki Kawahara, author of the Sword Art Online light novels, mentions that he simply didn't hugely care about the world of SAO when he was writing it. On the other hand, Tomohiko Ito, director of the SAO anime, apparently did care about the world (or at least the presentation of it) and Kawahara was impressed by that while watching the SAO anime. So yeah; a boring story and kinda cliche premise (provided by Kawahara) was mixed with a well-defined and alluring world (provided by Ito).

Nah, it's just that Death Note doesn't intrest me that much.

To be honest I have to agree with you. Not much of a Deathnote fan either. Interesting plot not as good as Liar Game in my opinion. Akiyama is much more genuine than Light

I gotta watch the anime of Toriko someday. The manga chapter I read last night was really cooky and over the top, and I think seeing it in motion would really help excentuate that.

@V8_Ninja - That's rather disheartening to hear.

I know the gist of it, but that kind of anime doesn't interest me that much.

What "type" of anime?

@Sky_Kia
Would you recommend Liar Game?

@Rocko52.
Thrillers.
I'm more into Slice-of-Life, Comedy and romance.
Stuff like that. And maybe some Super natural. But that's about it.
