Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ichigo Kurosaki has always been able to see ghosts, but this ability doesn't change his life nearly as much as his close encounter with Rukia Kuchiki, a shinigami and member of the mysterious Soul Society. While fighting a Hollow, an evil spirit that preys on humans who display psychic energy, Rukia attempts to lend Ichigo some of her powers so that he can save his family, but much to her surprise, Ichigo absorbs every last drop of her energy. Now a full-fledged shinigami himself, Ichigo quickly learns that the world he inhabits is one full of dangerous spirits, and along with Rukia, who is slowly regaining her powers, it's Ichigo's job to both protect the innocent from Hollows and to help the spirits themselves find peace.

Synopsis:

Hot-tempered 15-year-old Ichigo Kurosaki, the hero of the popular fantasy-adventure Bleach, has the unsettling ability to see spirits who are unable to rest in peace. His sixth sense leads him to Rukia, a Soul Reaper who destroys Hollows (soul-devouring monsters) and ensures the deceased find repose with the Soul Society. When she's injured in battle, Rukia transfers her sword and much of her power to Ichigo, whose spiritual energy makes him a formidable substitute Soul Reaper. But the orange-haired teenager isn't sure he wants the job: too many risks and moral dilemmas.

About the Author

Bleach is author Tite Kubo's second title. Kubo made his debut with ZombiePowder, a four-volume series for Weekly Shonen Jump. To date, Bleach has been translated into numerous languages and has also inspired an animated TV series that began airing in Japan in 2004. Beginning its serialization in 2001, Bleach is still a mainstay in the pages of Weekly Shonen Jump. In 2005, Bleach was awarded the prestigious Shogakukan Manga Award in the shonen (boys) category.

Ichigo is a normal guy, well except for the whole seeing and talking to ghosts thing. So when his family is attacked by a evil spirit he is pretty shocked. A mysterious girl who says she is a soul reaper helps him fight it off, but accidentally transfers her powers to him! Now she has to help him do her job of killing evil spirits.

I know this manga is super popular, but I wasn't a big fan. The story is pretty awesome, but the artwork kind of ruined it for me. It was too dark over all, when you have that much dark, chunky art crammed with too many speedlines and too much heavy handed attempt at drama. It could have looked very cool, but the author tried to jam too much into one panel.

I picked this up because the series is insanely popular with the kids at work, and I wanted to see what the fuss was about. Other popular manga series (Deathnote, Fruits Basket) have left me cold, but this one's completely sucked me in.

Ichigo already stands out from his peers: he can see ghosts, he has bright orange hair, and his sense of personal honor won't let him back down from a fight. A chance encounter with a Soul Reaper fighting a Hollow (a very dangerous demonlike being) leads to Ichigo absorbing the Soul Reaper's powers in order to defeat the Hollow and protect his family. Now Rukia, the Soul Reaper, has been inadvertently stripped of her powers, and Ichigo must step up to the plate and learn to fight Hollows until Rukia can regain her spiritual energy. Can Ichigo learn to fully take on the responsibility of a Soul Reaper?

The series is funny, dramatic, and startlingly original, and I am so happy I started reading it.
