Bleach, Volume 38: Fear for Fight opens with Izuru kicking some major boo-TAY. He always conveys a sweet demeanor, so it was a wonderful surprise seeing his badass side when he put Abirama Redder to shame.

On the other side of Karakura town, Shūhei Hisagi battles Findorr Calius. I was getting annoyed with all the "exacta" crap, and laughed to myself when Shūhei said what I was thinking.

While I enjoy these non-ranking Soul Reapers display their abilities, the fight scenes were ju

I was just ever so slightly disappointed with this volume, but yet there wasn't really anything WRONG with it so I still gave it 5 stars.
Although we were thrown back into battle in the last volume, this one seemed to be less exciting. The entire series has constantly kept me on edge, but yet this one volume, the first volume to have this issue, just kind of bored me. I seemed to just really want to get it done and over with, because the battle was very repetitive as the battle from before. Same

Szeretem ezt a borítót. Hisagi-t is szeretem, és azt is, hogy használta a zanpakuto-ját. Véleményem szerint, az egyik legszebb zanpakuto a mangában.
Igazából a fülszöveg elmondd mindent. Ki-kivel harcol, mik történtek, és mik a következmények.
Ikkaku-t én is jól fenékbe billentettem volna. Annyira makacs. És ennek a makacsságnak meglett az ára.
Mindenki harcban áll most, ami kicsit zavaró, az az, hogy egyik harcnál sem töltünk pár képnél többet, sok minden van belesűrítve ebbe a kötetbe.

So I'm back with my thoughts on Volume 38. I didn't really think much of these chapters when they were first released back in 2009 and I barely remember reading them. But in this sorta re-read, I'm struck at how Kubo defines the different characters philosophies. You go from Hisagi's to Kira's and even though the characters themselves appear to be good friends, they differ in their attitude to fighting. I don't now I never noticed it until now.

Oh and speaking of Hisagi, thank you Kubo for that

Bleach was definitely very interesting to read and different to what I usually read. I enjoyed the whole soul reaper concept and how we find out more and more about the main character as the story goes on.

It's a fast read and is easy to understand but gets progressively more difficult to follow parts of the story due to there being so many different characters that can be qualified as important in the progression of the story.

I would recommend it for the story line and the graphics but I do feel

We start off this volume with Chapter 323: Gloomy, Ghastly, and Full of Dispair.

In "Bleach vol 38" by Tite Kubo it explains a little about the main character. The main character Ichigo Kurosaki never wanted the ability to see ghosts. He didn't know he was born with a gift. One day his family is attacked by a Malevolent lost soul. After that Ichigo becomes a soul reaper which are people who fight spirits so that the spirits can't attack the humans. "I'm kind of glad we didn't make it in time" this was said by one of the Team members of Ichigo who saw what a spirit had done t ...more
intrested in how this is all going to endup in the end
It takes a brave author to set, not only his main character but, his entire main cast aside for nine chapters to allow the subordinates to shine in combat against the enemy. While Tite Kubo does do a spectacular job bringing characterization to some members of the Soul Society and the simple utterance of "Bankai" stilll sends chills down your spine, the villains in the piece fall flat. They're too generic with not enough to keep them interesting visually or personality wise.

A kind of a 'meh' volume. A lot of action and not a lot of plot development. The best part of it was probably the rumble between Aizen's soldiers and the various Soul Society captains/vice-captains near the end of the volume. Other than that, not much to write home about. Although reading Madarame and his section squabble was cute in an odd way.

An expanded review of this and the latest volumes of Naruto and One Piece will be up later tonight at my blog:

There is only one thing to fear...
To become a warrior without fear.
This series is getting like Dragon Ball Z to me...too much fighting, stilted dialogue, lack of character development or the plot moving forward. I'm going to try one more and then give up on Bleach. I really liked it at first but it's just getting too repetitive.
An entertaining and quick read.
At least this volume was still in the main story / timeline and not another flashback / side story. I do have to say that some of the characters are not consistant with how they were shown in previous appearances.

Now, I know there are lots of Naruto-Bleach comparisons, but I have found one more way they are similar - the longer they run, the more monotonous they become.
AWESOME!!!! Bleach is described in one word...EPIC!!!!!!!! I love Shuhei and I love Izuru and I was so thrilled when I read it xD
Nike Linarto
Shuhei Hisagi is so cool ^o^ the boy who had been saved by former 9th division Captain Kensei has grown a lot!
