Synopsis

Since childhood, seeing ghosts has been a part of Ichigo Kurosaki's ordinary life. However, things go awry when he and his spectral attachments get caught in a fight between Soul Reaper Rukia Kuchiki and a Hollow. As Ichigo learns, Soul Reapers are spiritual beings assigned to safely guide the dead to Soul Society, whereas Hollows are corrupt spirits that prey on innocent souls.

Though Rukia manages to defeat her opponent and keep everyone else out of harm, she exhausts her powers in the process. No longer capable of performing her duties, she resorts to forcing Ichigo to become her substitute until she recovers. Despite Rukia's abrasive behavior, Ichigo handles his new routine with ease. But when he is tasked with sending one of his classmates to Soul Society, Ichigo gains a compelling outlook on the afterlife.

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

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.

Preliminary
This was a idea that became what is now Bleach and I have to say Im happy this got popularity and became that great piece of art that it is. Some parts that were changed around im pretty happy with because it would have sucked if some people died that originally hadn't or the jobs and people changed in ways they didnt in the new one. In all I enjoyed it and am happy it was created. The original (this) changed some things in the current bleach that in my case I would prefer since I cant say what it is ill let it go read more
