Storyline

High school student Kurosaki Ichigo is unlike any ordinary kid. Why? Because he can see ghosts. Ever since a young age, he's been able to see spirits from the afterlife. Ichigo's life completely changes one day when he and his two sisters are attacked by an evil, hungry and tormented spirit known as a Hollow. Right in the nick of time, Ichigo and his siblings are aided by a Shinigami (Death God) named Kuchiki Rukia, whose responsibility it is to send good spirits (Pluses) to the afterlife known as Soul Society, and to purify Hollows and send them up to Soul Society. But during the fight against the Hollow, Rukia is injured and must transfer her powers to Ichigo. With this newly acquired power, so begins Kurosaki Ichigo's training and duty as a Shinigami to maintain the balance between the world of the living and the world of the dead... Written by Agent Neuman (corrected by Kijarat)

Trivia

The series was initially going to be titled 'Snipe' and Rukia was originally going to be its main character because Rukia was the first character that the creator, Tite Kubo, drew first. Kubo drew up the character and envisioned her wielding a scythe while all the other characters carried guns. See more »

Quotes

Ichigo Kurosaki: Eh-eah.
[wipes away blood]
Ikkaku Madarame: I don't get it.
Ichigo Kurosaki: Hm?...
Ikkaku Madarame: Sure there's some distance between us, but only a novice unfamiliar with fighting would allow a hand to leave his sword during a match!
Ichigo Kurosaki: Why don't you just shut your trap! Alright? I got blood in my eyes! So I just stopped to wipe it away!
Ikkaku Madarame: Even shallow wounds above the eye bleed profusely.
[removes a cap on the end of his hilt]
Ichigo Kurosaki: [puzzled] Mm!
Ikkaku Madarame: [dabbing his fingers in an ointment inside his hilt] Therefore you must stop the bleeding...

10. Why? Read Below.

Every anime has flaws, but when the flaws over-weigh the anime, it becomes a problem.

As for Bleach, I don't feel that it's going to happen any time soon. Sure, Bleach has some flaws, but overall this anime is satisfying. It has comedy, action, drama, and above all, intriguing weirdness that only this anime can provide.

I want to make this clear. It doesn't make sense when you start judging an anime by its fillers only. Hence the word 'FILLER'.

Bleach is not for everyone. Some call it 'overrated'. That doesn't matter. If you genuinely enjoy Bleach, stick with it like a true fan, and you won't regret it.

I'm rating it 10 'cause I'm a hardcore fan. Screw the flaws. If it has me coming back for more, they have got to be doing something right.
