Storyline

High school student Kurosaki Ichigo is unlike any ordinary kid. Why? Because he can see ghosts. Ever since a young age, he's been able to see spirits from the afterlife. Ichigo's life completely changes one day when he and his two sisters are attacked by an evil, hungry and tormented spirit known as a Hollow. Right in the nick of time, Ichigo and his siblings are aided by a Shinigami (Death God) named Kuchiki Rukia, whose responsibility it is to send good spirits (Pluses) to the afterlife known as Soul Society, and to purify Hollows and send them up to Soul Society. But during the fight against the Hollow, Rukia is injured and must transfer her powers to Ichigo. With this newly acquired power, so begins Kurosaki Ichigo's training and duty as a Shinigami to maintain the balance between the world of the living and the world of the dead... Written by Agent Neuman (corrected by Kijarat)

Great anime.
6 October 2007 | by willisx90See all my reviews

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.
