This is Bleach as a different take with him becoming a substitute Soul Reaper thanks to an alien being. It is a simple storyline that revolves around Orihime and her father and after all is said and done, Ichigo goes back to being his normal self.

When I began to read this,I thought it would be something I hadn't seen before.After looking through it,it felt like deja vu.It was basically Acidwire all over again.He was just replaced with Orihime's dad.It's been done before.Don't do it again.No offence to anybody who liked this,but I just didn't like it as much as I liked the original.If you feel like reading the same thing over again,that's your choice.I personally didn't want the Sora story all over again.

I believe the other review mentions that this is simply a rip off of the acidwire arc, but I'd like to go ahead and point out to anyone reading both reviews that this is the original one shot that gave birth to the entire bleach series, so keep in mind that in a sense the acidwire arc was taken from this one shot. With that being said:

The bleach short story is top notch as far as one shots go. The artwork may not seem to compare to Kubo's current style, but at it's time and even on it's own it is extremely well drawn in read more
