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.

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.

I absolutely LOVE Bleach!!!!! It was the first manga that I ever bought and I love it! Each character has their own personality and there's always some problem the protagonists have to get through. Ichigo is such an awesome character, sometimes stubborn, but always fighting for a cause. And when there's trouble with a friend, he is always there to help and fight for/with them. Each time I see him, he's always stronger than before; it's almost like there's no limit to his strength. I found that there are a lot of funny moments with Ichigo and friends, and yet there are a lot of serious moments, adding to plot even more. I definitely recommend reading, and then watching, Bleach because plot, theme, character design, etc. are really good throughout Bleach. And, it may help that Ichigo doesn't look that bad as the anime progresses (especially in his Bankai form). FYI, I'm Ichihime all the way! smile

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

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.
