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.

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.
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..
I'm sure most people browsing the series will already be familiar with it, but if you're not then it's similar to other popular mangas like naruto, only it's a lot more action focussed. There are some very cool powers in the series (I still read the manga when it comes out online; the series is definitely worth following all the way!). Sometimes I find that (at least in the anime), Bleach can use comedy at the wrong moments, killing the mood a bit, but that's not a problem in the first series, more so a bit later on.
So, whether you're collecting the DVDs of your favourite anime series like me, or this is first introduction to Bleach (or even anime), you'll love the series and be wholly satisfied with the quality of this set.
Bleach is the story of a teen (Ichigo Kurasaki) who gains immense powers by accident and travels to protect those around him and... *yawn* ... sorry, nearly fell asleep there. It's not the most original story, but it is well told, with a lot of action and minimal messing about. You won't watch this anime for its story (although there is one, and it gets better), you watch it for the exceptional fight scenes (what do they have against shoulders? Everyone gets stabbed there!) and the basic, but well told, character development, especially from series heroines Orihime and Rukia. The series starts off well, laying out its wares with a simple intro followed by a lot of carnage and the introduction of heroes and villains (and sometimes people who are both). This bare-bones release makes the series start very smoothly, and without many distractions the series benefits from a smoother flow.
This release is five discs containing all the episodes and with minimal, but competant, extras. It is a very good place to start Bleach, with the best value for money that the series has at the moment.
Five stars for the action, barely 2 for the originality, but a very, very good anime. Highly recommended, especially in this form.
