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 don't care if people say it's overrated or what not but i realy liked this series
i started watching the anime first and i was hooked
the different abilities of their zanpactos (idk is spelled right) are really interesting and makes you wonder what their bankai and abilities are since each are different.
the humor is pretty good, so is the art
i love the characters! each one is soo different and has a different personalities.
my personal fav is rukia. she's just soo strong yet clueless in the real world at the same time. she's such a role model!
but on the other hand orihime really makes me mad cause she's so pathetic
ichigo also gets on my nerves too cause sometimes he's just too rash and does stuff without thinking
i love how there's soo many characters. yet there are so many questions and mysteries that are unsolved and that just keeps me hooked no matter how long this series it

totally recommend

YES it as the greatest manga ever but now its just boring and my god Orihime (in my opinion) is the MOST ANNOYING/ USELESS CHARACTER! god why is she there? just b/c she has a huge boobs?

only 4/5 words can express how i feel about bleach :
People are putt-off by this manga or anime due to the fact of the INCREDIBLE amount of Episodes and chapters ( im surprised myself) and the plot/s drag on and on and on. But these people are making a huge mistake. Bleach has its ups and downs within its plots.Anime; Begining is FANTASTic. Middle Season is msotly Like a FILLER but arund epsiode 300 (before and after) is simply "OH MY GoSH!" WOW thats completely unexpected" . The characters develop great leaps and the art is fantastic. Must Read and it will (Literaallly) Last you a life-time. Hope it never ends (i bet people are saying "hell NO!") XP

one of the big three i would consider as the top shonen manga currently (naruto and one piece being the other two). having said that, i would rank it second among those three (one piece being first, since it still makes some sense, and naruto third, since it obviously forgot it's own title.) seriously, i'm just hoping the author will wrap up whatever the hell is going on in the series right now and go back to the stuff that worked in the beginning, since it was sooooo much better. and i dont mean repeating the story, i mean writing/drawing what i actually care about (i really dont care about the fight between birdman and scarface, can you just kill one of them and be done with it?)

I really like both the manga and the anime. The manga is slightly better than the anime cuz they miss parts. but over all, i think it's great. If your into action, this is something to read/watch.

When he prattles on about instinct.
Apparently instinct is the answer to why humans are better than animals. And here I thought it was because humans were capable of higher thought (a thought that occurred to me because I was capable of higher thought) but apparently I need to think more with my chaotic chemically based emotions and less with my cold calculating head.

Get real kubo. Go read a few real books and stop relying on your pheromones for answers. He's a brilliant artist and has a talent for comedy but when it comes to a slice of life I'd rather take pointers from someone who doesn't have their gut making their decisions for them.

Also I hate Kenpachi more than I've ever hated a fictional character. If you like him go ahead a lobotomize yourself. There must be something wrong with you if you like such a one dimensional loose cannon of a character. How does he get at least 10 times more powerful with no training. Its the result of negligence and poor storytelling I say!

one of the best animes out there. The amount of characters can be sort of puzzling though ^-^'' Action is good and it's regular. Characters are well developed and funny. the only character i don't quite like is Orihime. she seems kinda like a stereotypical helpless damsel in distress and waiting for a prince (ichigo) to run and save her delicateness... but there are certain times where she is a good character.
great series, hope to read more.

What are you guys talking about??! haha. bleach END? that would be HORRIBLE.
if bleach ends what other anime do I watch TT_TT... I will be left animless >_<
bleach is the new dragon ball except cooler biggrin
you guys are too whiney >_<... kubodite wanted to make a shounen manga not a shoujou manga >_> of course there wont be as much character developement as a shoujou. but you can see a LOT of character development for ichigo and little bit of character development for the people around him... >_<
