Ichigo Kurosaki has always been able to see ghosts, but this ability doesn't change his life nearly as much as his close encounter with Rukia Kuchiki, a Soul Reaper and member of the mysterious Soul Society. While fighting a Hollow, an evil spirit that preys on humans who display psychic energy, Rukia attempts to lend Ichigo some of her powers so that he can save his family, but much to her surprise, Ichigo absorbs every last drop of her energy. Now a full-fledged Soul Reaper himself, Ichigo quickly learns that the world he inhabits is one full of dangerous spirits, and along with Rukia, who is slowly regaining her powers, it's Ichigo's job to both protect the innocent from Hollows and to help the spirits themselves find peace.

Won the 50th Shogakukan Manga Award in the Shounen category.

I won't say this story has no flaws. What I will say is that it definitely won't take away from your reading experience. Kubo Tite is a great storyteller, and although the plot has the usual shounen feel, he adds in great plot twists that keep you reading. The characters are complex and interesting, the dialogue is beautiful, and the story is compelling. It's a must read series for it's genre.

This is a truly exceptional manga with a good storyline, although the storyline is not particularly unique. The main appeal in this series is in the fighting and actual images, with the storyline being a very strong and solid side note, or a slightly weak main note. I would highly recommend this manga to anyone who enjoys a good story and great imagery.

its so obvious who's going to win and what's going to happen that it hurts.

I see not merit in the maga, another DBZ clone, like hundreds out there

Interesting plot and funny characters equals to a good manga. And apparently, there're no Bleach haters! Or maybe there're too little of them for them to come out of the closet. Well, no one cares about them anyway, so f__ it. [edit by mod, calm down! :-)]

Supperior manga .. especially if you like your manga filled with action, fascinating characters, great plots and a lot of suspense. Bleach truly made me a manga addict.
