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)

Trivia

Bleach was created because Tite Kubo wanted to draw kimono-wearing shinigami, so he drew the character of Rukia Kuchiki, making her the first character to be drawn as well as the first character to appear in the series. See more »

Bleach is amazing.
19 August 2007 | by evilyoshifanSee all my reviews

I can't remember when I started watching Bleach, I was suddenly hooked. I started at like, episode 30 and had no clue what was going on. After about two episodes, I decided to watch them online in a English sub-titled version. I'm not a fan of English dubs, either. I watch Bleach all the time, it's really addicting Bleach is about this kid, Ichigo. 15, currently in High-School. He's been able to see ghosts ever since he could remember. Rukia, a death-god suddenly appears one day. She gets wounded trying to protect Ichigo and transfers most of her power to him.

It has a lot of action, comedy, and a bit of drama. Great show for teenagers, or even older than that.
