Ichigo Kurosaki, along with his family, runs a local clinic. Ichigo has the unusual ability to see poltergeists but rather than react with surprise he merely sees it as an annoyance. Ichigo helps those he can when he cares to but can't bring himself to care enough... until one fateful day. A small, mysterious woman appears inside his room, a Shinigami known as Rukia Kuchiki.

    Soon Ichigo is dragged into Rukia's world of death, loyalty and danger as he struggles to hold on to his humanity whilst fulfilling the duties of a Shinigami.

If I could complain about anything it would sometimes be some annoying dialogue, and having side stories in the middle of the main. But this is a great anime with great action, characters, and humor. I especially like the idea of the hollow monster inside the main hero, Ichigo. Expand

It has a lot of fighting/ non fighting scenes that make it that much more enjoyable to watch. It has a lot of suspense that keeps me on my toes until the next episode comes out, and still leaves me wanting more. It is anime about a high school kid named Ichigo who see's ghost and one day meets a Soul Reaper named Rukia who saves him my making him a Soul Reaper as well. As the anime progresses it gets even more suspenseful, and complex as the characters grow and progress. Thus making it my all time favorite anime:) Expand

    BLEACH still a good anime but not as good it use to be.

    BLEACH still a good anime but not as good it use to be.

    The story is about Ichigo Kurosaki getting supernatural powers from a shinigami named Rukia kuchiki and uses it to save souls while at the same time the soul society wants Rukia executed for attempting a forbidden rule. Ichigo and his friends uryu, chad, and orihime try to rescue rukia before she is sentenced to death. After the soul society arc was finished thats when haters came by and started to diss the anime for its ridiculously amounts of fillers and next story arc about Aizen who is captain superman became the antagonist. To me i would not diss the anime for it but the fillers were good compared to other animes which had no meaning. Anyways the next arc in Kubo's manga is about arrancars which is hollows becoming somewhat looking like humans with zanpaktous around them, and then thats which bleach was started to being called a DBZ clone only with swords i'm not surprised. Eventually i didn't care about their opinion because i still liked bleach till this day for its awesome fights. Soon or later Orihime gets kidnapped by Aizen's members NOT surprising there that Kubo decided to repeat what just happened with Rukia being held by the soul society and being sentenced to be executed but oh well. If you watched the Japanese version DON'T READ THIS SENTENCE i'm about to write down. Eventually Orihime gets rescued for good and we get to see Ichigo Vs Aizen otherwise Butterflaizen if you watched at this point in the story Ichigo decided the only to defeat Aizen completely is to give up his shinigami powers completely and obliterate Aizen for good. Thats when in my opinion you think Aizen would be dead when all the other characters that died well lets just say... he wasn't dead. Yes after all that aizen should have died after this BUT NO. After Ichigo Loses his powers and says good-bye to Rukia i thought that the anime would have ended in a awesome way turns out kubo never ended which i went WTF? next arc which was officially the last arc for the anime yet the manga is still ongoing and heading towards its finale Arc and who knows when its ending? turns out awkward because Ichigo tries to get his powers back since his friends are in trouble by a different situation. OVERRALL BLEACH is still good as however since Aizen's defeat which should've ended the series completely turns into an awkward way to ending however i will still like bleach and give hope that once enough chapters had been made that BLEACH will somehow comeback to animation and end with an awesome bang.

There is great variety to characters in terms of appearance, personality and fighting style, which is an impressive achievement given the sheer number of them. My one major criticism of Bleach is that battles tend to follow a predictable pattern. The person who wants to win the most usually wins, regardless of the (often incredible) injuries they sustain. The strength of a character seems to vary wildly from beginning to end. Regardless, this is a high quality anime. Expand
