Description
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.

Note: Won the 50th Shogakukan Manga Award in the Shounen category in 2005.

Great manga!

This manga is really good. The story is really interesting and there are so many likeable characters. Not only is the story good but it's setting is really interesting
Spoiler (highlight to view)
the soul society and hueco mundo are really cool, although the soul society is way cooler
. The fight scenes can be long sometimes but as others have said it's a shounen manga so not an uncommon thing to happen. If you watch the anime just skip over the filler seasons because they are absolutely terrible.

I agree with pretty much every single thing that CowTail said below. Except worthless... I mean, the guy apparently makes a living off such a manga, so.. its still worth something.
What's funny is the anime runs 10000000x better, and that's just because the director doesn't seem to be a retard like Kubo.
Ah well. Even after all these insults, I still keep reading it. Guess cuz I'm waiting for it to end... but if after 385 chapters
Spoiler (highlight to view)
the main villain finally draws his bloody sword
, probably means this is gonna take a while. I'm just glad its getting there, since there can't be TOO many wildcards left for Kubo to keep extending the plot with.

BUT I WAS WRONG. WOW.

I dropped it

I get boring, I dropped the anime series
n I'm going to read the manga after this series has finished. I just want to know the ending story.....
Spoiler (highlight to view)
Too many characters (kinda like Boomerang for this series), too many sidestories... and the main story was pushed behind.
The major characters from early chapters are losing their roles as the story goes. Ichigo definitely is the main char, so he's the central of the story, but what about the others? like ishida..
And the story's getting no where to go... so slow.
Oh yeah, when the battle comes out, the good characters always win... (yep, 99% story always like that at the END, but what i mean here it's too typical! 99% win rate for god characters, 1%: a character, i don't recall who, was loss when protecting 4 pillars, and yet there was no story 'bout how did he lose...),
and there's no one die here?? (cmon, this is sword fight duels... oh so what if they are deathgods? they're still can die...) I mean in the war, both sides must be suffer/loss someting right? They don't even loss a finger. The only victims are the hollow(s)/aranchar(s)... slaughtered.
i don't think after aizen get defeated the story would end... thank's god if it is,
ichigo still doesn't face the hollow who kill his mommy, does he?
and why his daddy left soul society?
what kubo wants for giving taisuki, keigo, etc the power to see spirit? when they don't even influence the story?
where Ururu n her partner, the red hair boy, came from? There was't any mention of them in urahara past story. and they weren't shinigami.. nor human?
too many questions and mess
kubo sensei, if it ever happen that you or any of your staff read this.. please take my advice, don't make this manga your lifetime project.

Bleach was really interesting, until other characters (Inoue, Chad) began to gain spiritual power. What the hell, it looks like a clone of Flame of Recca. A big and strong guy, a girl who can heal, a calm and smart fighter, and a cool, reckless hero. And also the plot. Everything is dragged for so long and getting boring & wordy. I give it 8 for Kon and two classmate dudes' humor.

Man, but I've been hating Bleach lately. It has been really, really awful. But you know what? I just went back recently and re-read the Soul Society arc. At least for a while, Bleach was amazing. Maybe it will come back, and maybe it won't, but I just changed my rating back to a nine to commemorate the good old days when Bleach was awesome. ...If it had ended with the Soul Society arc, my rating would be a ten.

Shounen mainstream manga, Blend characters, overdramatic techs, lousy dialogue etc etc. Would rate this bottom tier 1 but then again, the point (if any) of the mainstream shounen is to be cheesy. So I guess its a 5ier.

The people who say its getting repetitive..just shut up and stop reading manga...apparantly you lost the meaning of enjoyment. Every manga is bound to be repetitive..there's only a certain amount of ways to develop the story...Naruto and bleach is not dying IMO, you're just not seeing what you want to see and so losing interest...don't make other ppl not read it just b/c you can't handle reading for long periods of time...go read one-shots IMO

What in the world does it being repetitive have to do with not being able to handle long reads. You're probably saying that because most people comment things like that on longer series, BUT it's not because we can't handle it. It's because, in this case, the author is now running out of ideas and is visualizing the same plot with a few changes. We want something completely different. And IT IS repetitive. Have you noticed that it's the same exact plot except with a different girl and different scenes?

What I don't like about Bleach is now that it's getting into the romance/ecchi genre which I don't like at all. it originally started out with the "I need to become stronger plotline" WITHOUT such a genre appearing strongly, and I don't like the fact that it's starting now. If you ask me, the author doesn't go indepth enough with the characters or scene for the countless fighting scenes to be interesting. Enough criticism from me.>.<

how could this kind of series goes on? like the other has already commented, I think the Soul Society arc was fabulous. And as that one arc was too good, the later arc just not charming enough. I actually hated all of them

Standard shonen for people who don't know any better

Bleach was good up until the end of the Soul Society arc. From then on it started dragging on and becoming repetetive with Orihime getting traded in for Rukia in HM. With the arrancars acting as mere characters filling in for the gap between the SS arc and the final battle against Aizen, there's really not much more to say about Bleach. It has long, dragging fights, a standard shonen main character, almost no character-development what-so-ever. It's like they're alive because they're there, with no feel, emotion and in most cases nothing in particular that sets them apart.

At the end of the Soul Society arc there was a major twist in the storyline, but after that it just became predictable, with so many plotholes it almost looks like a Swiss cheese, and powerups making characters look like bugs, gundams and what-not, Bleach has just become much worse than if it had downright ended after the SS arc, right there and then. Now it's not even worth anyone's time, and nothing I would ever recommend anyone with the slightest mental capacity of reading/watching.
