Quotes:
Ichigo Kurosaki:Eh-eah.
[wipes away blood]
Ikkaku Madarame:I don't get it.
Ichigo Kurosaki:Hm?...
Ikkaku Madarame:Sure there's some distance between us, but only a novice unfamiliar with fighting would allow a hand to leave his sword during a match!
Ichigo Kurosaki:Why don't you just shut your trap! Alright? I got blood in my eyes! So I just stopped to wipe it away!
Ikkaku Madarame:Even shallow wounds above the eye bleed profusely.
[removes a cap on the end of his hilt]
Ichigo Kurosaki:[puzzled] Mm!
Ikkaku Madarame:[dabbing his fingers in an ointment inside his hilt] Therefore you must stop the bleeding...

Great anime., 6 October 2007
Author: willisx90 from United States

I'm not amused that so many people expect this series to be funny. It seems like most people just gave up watching it after the first episode. Frankly, if you don't know who Kenpachi Zaraki is then you shouldn't even be granting advice on this series.

Listen, this is a series made to be dramatic and also to show people beat the hell out of each other with swords. It's probably one of the best animes in terms of plot twists and character development. (It's also the only one that has ever caught my interest.) If you expect to see robot chicken style antics in ANY A.S. anime then you are crap out of luck. But as for anime, this will not leave you bored.

The only reason it isn't a ten is because of the nobodies selected to give voice-over jobs in yet another American anime. To get the best quality I would highly suggest finding the Japanese versions online with English- or another respective-subtitle.
