Kubo expects us to care after how many years now? He's too damn slow in storytelling. I know there's still a minority out there that's loyal to the story, and you yourselves are probably the only ones keeping this manga alive because of it... but this slowness in storytelling and progress? it's definitely what's killing the manga.
Its perspective. Kubo is more 'in the moment' than even Kishi/Naruto. He hasn't set a lot of shit up to be important or whatever later. He generally focuses on simply the area with the most characters. He rarely switches actual 'locations' unless its quick, and informational. His storytelling styles major foundation is battles. He does excell in his actual battle imagination, choreography, not perfect but battles are far better than those in Naruto IMHO. Since Naruto/Pein, besides Sasuke's battles, they've been subpar IMHO. Not every one, but most of the battles.
Btw, in the interview Kubo stated, Nel & Grimjoww will prolly appear again, but with Halibel he said 'doubt it', but its possible. Ever other Arrancar and they're subordinates perished.
Just a Badass Crew...
"Why, Mr. Kyf? Why do you do it? Why get up? Why keep fighting? Do you believe you're fighting FOR something? For more than your Characters survival? Can you tell me what IT is? Do you even know? Is IT freedom? Or truth? Perhaps peace? Yes? No? Could it be for love? Illusions, Mr. Kyf. Vagaries of perception. The temporary constructs of a feeble human intellect trying desperately to justify a shinobi that is without meaning or purpose. And all of them as artificial as the Matrix itself, although only a human mind could invent something as insipid as love. You must be able to see it, Mr. Kyf. You must know it by now. You can't win. It's pointless to keep fighting. Why, Mr. Kyf? Why? Why do you persist?"
