See, that's why shounen is so popular and so hated. Some of it is the most amazing shit you've ever seen and then it turns to complete crap.
Early Bleach: Great
Early Naruto: Great ((You say Zabuza wasn't the shit, you're just trolling.))
Early DBZ: Amazing
Early One Piece: Fun and it made sense
Early Kenshin: Still gay, but not as gay
Fucking teamwork bullshit and power of friendship fucks it up each and every time, though. God damn it!
