Ok, let's put it this way.
BR provides for those who are totally and utterly sick of most shounen out there, with a bit of relief.
That is, the shounen which
- Don't end
- Provide few and far between thrills over a period of 12 years
- don't overflood with a jillion characters and try to give ALL of them back story and intricate plot involvement.
- don't lose track of the main plot for dumb crap
-COMPLETE carbon copy characters from other series
Instead we get, from BR;
- It ends.
- Awesome female lead who isn't over the top.
- Progressive story that doesn't go into spaz gay orgy arcs of annoying.
