Ichigo Kurosaki is an ordinary high schooler—until his family is attacked by a Hollow, a corrupt spirit that seeks to devour human souls. It is then that he meets a Soul Reaper named Rukia Kuchiki, who gets injured while protecting Ichigo's family from the assailant. To save his family, Ichigo accepts Rukia's offer of taking her powers and becomes a Soul Reaper as a result.

However, as Rukia is unable to regain her powers, Ichigo is given the daunting task of hunting down the Hollows that plague their town. However, he is not alone in his fight, as he is later joined by his friends—classmates Orihime Inoue, Yasutora Sado, and Uryuu Ishida—who each have their own unique abilities. As Ichigo and his comrades get used to their new duties and support each other on and off the battlefield, the young Soul Reaper soon learns that the Hollows are not the only real threat to the human world.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


Bleach adapts the first 54 volumes of Tite Kubo's manga series of the same name. In addition, 4 anime-original arcs were broadcast in-between and during the adaptations of original arcs of the manga.

Bleach is an anime that you will truly love if you skip fillers, the fillers are boring at some point the first filler arc is executed poorly ,the idea is great but the characters are boring.aside from fillers the anime is good ,but if you are a person who like deep character development I am sorry to tell that the character development is not that great but if you are a person who likes edgy sword fights and fire openings and osts.the characters are simple and we'll written but as story reaches the end they are same people.but aside the problems it is a really ...

Mixed Feelings
If you're a Bleach fan, I sincerely apologize, because I'm about to make myself a new asshole. Now do I hate this show? No, not really. Do I think it's mid? Uh, kinda. I mean after finishing it I'm pretty indifferent towards it. Which is really unfortunate because I actually didn't feel that way when I first started watching it.

You see Bleach is a show that I watched at the start of this year for the first time. And I never grew up watching this show, I never even heard of it until I started watching it. The only Bleach I knew was the ...

Average with cliche fairy like story and overall a failed anime which fails to immerse you in the world though characters were pretty good and believable. The thing is the bleach universe is not completed yet and there is some good plot points liketh e imprisonment ईएनटी of aizen, yhwach which was personally my favourite but till now it's pretty unlikable world that doesn't teaches anything new andis overall just fails to immerse you in the world.
Story is not unique and it's predictable.
Art style fits the story
Characters were all great and believable.
The characters react to situations and events in a realistic way
Others won't enjoy the ...
