Substitute Soul Reaper Ichigo Kurosaki spends his days fighting against Hollows, dangerous evil spirits that threaten Karakura Town. Ichigo carries out his quest with his closest allies: Orihime Inoue, his childhood friend with a talent for healing; Yasutora Sado, his high school classmate with superhuman strength; and Uryuu Ishida, Ichigo's Quincy rival.

Ichigo's vigilante routine is disrupted by the sudden appearance of Asguiaro Ebern, a dangerous Arrancar who heralds the return of Yhwach, an ancient Quincy king. Yhwach seeks to reignite the historic blood feud between Soul Reaper and Quincy, and he sets his sights on erasing both the human world and the Soul Society for good.

Yhwach launches a two-pronged invasion into both the Soul Society and Hueco Mundo, the home of Hollows and Arrancar. In retaliation, Ichigo and his friends must fight alongside old allies and enemies alike to end Yhwach's campaign of carnage before the world itself comes to an end.

This particular rendition of Bleach should be seen as a master-class of what an S-tier anime looks like. But let me be clear, that fact has nothing to do with the source material or the story (i.e Bleach). Obviously the source material being GOOD makes it an enjoyable watch. But the implementation of its presentation, art-style choice, animation quality, and filmography techniques take it from A-tier to S-tier. I can count on 1 hand the number of anime I'd rate as "S-tier" and just take a look at my list - 400+ complete titles, starting from early the 2000's (which I consider "the golden age"). ...

If you're not familiar with Bleach and you're wondering if this show is actually good: it's not.
"Why is it ranked so high then?" I hear you ask, quite simply because the Bleach fandom is hyped that the show is back and are massively hypevoting it.

Both seasons of this new Bleach have great animation, and that's about it. If you're familiar with Bleach you might get some enjoyment from seeing all your favourite characters again. However in terms of story or dialogue this show is atrocious. In truth this show is really just an excuse to animate some cool fight scenes.

Sadly almost all fights in this ...

Beautifull art ... bad history ... bad characters and cring as hell ...

Bleach : Sennen kassen-hen is the last arc of bleach. The main history is about a normal living guys that have contact with ghosts(???) and shinimigamis, he get powers and the chaos starts.

This time they put some money on this bs, cause everyone that watched bleach must be kinda old nowadays.

History (1/10) : I´m really a fan of shoujos and shonen´s histories, but they must be good and bleach is not one of those. History wise is a bs with lots of cliches, hey the good boy is losing ? He get ...
