LOLOLOL. Troll subs are awesome as they also show real life!! This is troll but it would be what a dad would say in real life. Spoiler pic though. Not big. just a scene.

Most of it aren't troll. That dad is really talking in ridiculously foul ways, where many of the Japanese puns also work for English puns. That or we're so used to seeing those Japanese puns translated into English that we (or rather, I) think it also works in English.
Bleach WAS awesome. As a matter of fact, most mainstream anime "were" awesome as well.
Heck, think of it properly... how does it become mainstream if it wasn't super popular to begin with? And how could it become super popular unless it has various aspects that made it possible? Seeing as stuff like One Piece, Naruto, and Bleach are all typical shounen mangas, it tends to rely on
1) interesting concept in the lore/store/world
2) characters you can relate to or look up to
#2 is moot since any story can have this. But #1 is often what sets things apart.
And #1 also implies a good short term plot--as these types of concepts can be further developed but cannot be bottomless unless it becomes ridiculous. This is where THE AWESOME mainstream anime/manga starts becoming an object of disdain. The awesomeness has played through itself, yet the story continues and further more and more ridiculous development happens, and yet we see no end...
Honestly, if Bleach and Naruto ended when they were around episode 70 or something, I think most people wouldn't make it an object of elitist hate. But they didn't. And thus so.
This is just my personal observation. Loved both of those shows back then, now I don't even want to bother with it. 5x episodes is probably as far as a good series should last. Like FMA. Now that's mainstream as well.
