Has anyone noticed that there are side stories now? Like in the last episode (episode 47) Hinamori and the former captain Aizen. Why she wanted to be in his squad. I think some of these side stories are interesting. I think because animes can catch up to the mangas they need side stories. Look how close Naruto with the manga if they didn't add in catching the bug. That used 3 or 4 episodes. See animes take like 3 chapters per episode which come out (for the most part) weekily while the manga is just one chapter a week. I honestly think that they need to do side stories. As long as they are deeping the story I don't mind them at all.
