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 soul reaper and member of the mysterious Soul Society. While fighting a hollow, an evil spirit that preys on humans who display spiritual 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 soul reaper himself, Ichigo quickly learns that the world he inhabits is one full of dangerous spirits and, along with Rukia, it’s Ichigo’s job to protect the innocent from hollows and help the spirits themselves find peace. In 2005, Bleach was awarded the Shogakukan Manga Award in the shounen category.
LIKENESS SCALE: ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ (4.5 hearts)
Bleach was first published last August 2001 and it has ended this August 2016. The first hundred or more chapters about soul society, Aizen and Hollows were amazing. After the arc it became less action packed and the story seemed lacking. However, the author reserved a lot of action for the last arc which was rushed. I think that the ending was too fast and it did not clearly answer how the war ended.
In the last chapter, most of the main characters have settled down. I’m super happy that my OTP for this manga came true. Anyways, the ending was good but I just want to know what happened to the other characters like Urahara, Yoruichi, Nel, Grimjoww and the others. I hope that the author would address this other characters with an extra chapter. I would definitely rate this manga a 5 hearts when that happens.
I would also like to say that Tōshirō Hitsugaya was totally hot with his adult form. (fangirl mode)
