Bleach is addicting and just plain awesome!, 3 July 2007
Author: babyblue04002 from United States

When I first started watching Bleach it was because I had nothing else to do, i caught it around episode 5. After i watched two shows i was completely hooked. I love everything, the characters, the animation everything! I was running around like a mad woman trying to catch up on the episodes. For main characters we have

Ichigo: A normal 15 year old boy, except for the fact he can see spirits. He's torn up over his mothers death and he's angry. Rukia: A past soul reaper who's lost her powers helps Ichigo all while trying to understand him. Kon: A mod spirit who is actually really funny, i love that he was added to the show.

Once you start watching your captivated for the next half hour, as soon as i turn on Bleach the next thing i know its over.

There are no words to explain how much i love this show, and i know i'm not the only one.
