Product Description

TAKING ON THE AFTERLIFE, ONE SOUL AT A TIME!

Ichigo Kurosaki is an ordinary 15-year-old boy who happens to be able to see ghosts. His fate takes an extraordinary turn when he meets Rukia Kuchiki, a Soul Reaper who shows up at Ichigo's house on the trail of a Hollow, a malevolent lost soul. Drawn to Ichigo's high level of spiritual energy, the Hollow attacks Ichigo and his family, and Rukia steps in to help but is injured and unable to fight. As a last resort, Rukia decides to transfer part of her Soul Reaper powers to Ichigo...

Ichigo, now a full-fledged Soul Reaper, and Rukia, minus her powers, join together to face the challenges that lie ahead.

Ichigo Kurosaki is just your average teenage boy... except that he can see spirits.

So it's not exactly surprising that he gets involved in wild, dangerous adventures, in the first season of the hilarious, action-packed "Bleach." It starts off a bit slow, but rapidly winds into a thrilling, expansive adventure story, with lots of big swords, roaring monsters, and TV psychics.

One night a strange girl appears in Ichigo's bedroom, and is shocked when he can see her. She explains that she's a Soul Reaper, who helps the dead pass on to the Soul Society, and destroys evil spirits called Hollows.

But when Rukia is injured in a fight with a Hollow, all her powers are transferred to Ichigo -- and with them, the responsibility of killing Hollows. Ichigo soon finds out that it isn't easy juggling his new responsibilities with his normal, everyday life -- especially since the powerless Rukia is now attending his school, and living in his closet.

Even more distressing, his new powers are attracting all sorts of trouble: the Hollow who murdered his mother, the now-monstrous brother of his ditzy friend Orihime, an outspoken "mod-soul," and classmate Uryu-- the last of the Quincys, sworn enemies of Soul Reapers. Moreover, Orihime and the gentle giant Chad start developing spiritual powers of their own.

But then two powerful Soul Reapers show up to arrest Rukia. Ichigo is left mortally wounded and robbed of his powers, while Rukia is taken back to the Soul Society to be executed. To rescue Rukia, Ichigo agrees to undergo a terribly training regimen that could leave him worse than dead... and the journey into the Soul Society may be even worse...

Most long-running series run out their welcome pretty quickly, or start following a formula.

A little slow, but stick with it if you're new to anime (which is much better than what your initial thoughts about it may be, trust me, I was completely embarrassed when I started watching some anime when I wanted something to do, but now it's so brilliant, I keep wondering why there is a stigma to it. The enormous blob of the old embarrassing Pokécrap didn't help).

Anyway, Bleach is an awesome series; great characters, epic fight scenes and emotive music. Watch and you'll be hooked until the end (if you can stand the filler series, they're ok overall compared with everything else out there on TV, but compared to the real Tite Kubo storyline they're AWFUL!!! But watch them anyway. As I said, they're good compared to other series, but compared to the real storyline of Bleach, they're rubbish. Five star Bleach, Four star fillers.

Anyway, buy it, watch it, get hooked. You'll never regret it. The animation also improves too, till it's incredibly slick and polished looking.

My daughter is a big Anime fan so I got the first Bleach film( Memories of a Nobody) and even I loved it, so when I discovered the Bleach series while looking through Amazon I thought I'd get it for my daughter and have enjoyed the series as much as the film.

I liked the thought that the series isn't all dark, it has humour thrown in, which makes it lighter and more watchable and the 'mod soul' Kon is a star all on his own..
I also liked the interaction between Ichigo and his family, esecially his Father who is nuts but hilarious..
All the characters bounce off each other, so you're not focussed on one person for too long, which can make any kind of film genre boring.
I'll definitely be buying series two in the near future..

Having been a fan of Hayao Miyazaki and Dragonball Z, I was looking for a new Anime to enjoy. I chose two, Naruto and Bleach. And Bleach was by far the winner!
The first season of Bleach really sets a magnificent tone which has (so far) carried on into Season 2.
Not only is this series action packed and exciting, it is also laugh out loud funny!
The animation is beautiful and the stories keep you hooked from start to finish.
This is a must have for any anime fan!
Xx

The first installment of the bleach series starts off at a slower pace to the second, but this time is spent developing the characters and giving you a peek at their background without blatantly giving everything away.
The action is mixed with good storylines, fleshed out characters and mixture of both humour and sorrow - the latter is hardly surprising considering the series deals with ghosts and as result death and loss. In my opinion, it is a good general all-rounder and I would say would suit both gender's tastes. It does contain a lot of action but in most cases this is backed up with a story, so even those who aren't action fans may like this. Also it's not packed with fanservice which can sometimes be seen in other titles and might put some people off.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone already interested in anime or just starting out as its easy to get to grips with. Also I'd recommend getting this boxset as although the separate volumes are also a good price, this complete series 1 boxset is a bargain - I only wish other anime series would have such good price tags.
