A good volume! My gosh, this series really needs to decide if it's going to be good or bad. Then at least I'd know what to expect.

I really liked the 'fight', though I'm honestly not sure if that was just because Ichigo got totally and utterly thrashed or not. He seriously needed to be humbled and I'm very glad it happened. With that said, I think I am actually getting more attached to the main characters, or so I don't hate them anymore... Rukia at least. I liked her reactions, it was a little s

Según recuerdo tras una revisada superficial al tomo, era prácticamente todo intro... ¡Pero qué intro! No sé si cuando retome Bleach lo haré desde el punto en el que colgué la serie o si volveré a leer alguno de estos tomos, pero cuando lo haga seguro me llene de agridulces recuerdos, sobre todo si los leo de la primera edición argentina...

Are we onto the official big, first arc now? So maybe this time Bleach will stay good for a while instead of oscillating between meh and bad and pretty good? Here's hoping.

Everyone is gearing up to rescue Rukia. We get breadcrumbs about Rukia's relationship with her adoptive brother. All in all, a pretty good volume.

I loved the way that Rukia saved Ichigo again. When there is the letter on the table from Rukia which says thank you for everything, that made me almost cry. I think they should really get together in the end. She saved him because she cares for him.

This volume was better than the others, at least in my opinion, We picked up where the cliffhanger last time left off, with Ishida confronting Renji and Byakuya, although he is quickly defeated and Ichigo joins the fight.

The training scenes were good, and well paced I think. And I honestly am still so confused about Ishi

Synopsis: Ichigo Kurosaki sees ghosts, and fights...a lot. All of this is pretty normal for Ichigo, but then he meets Rukia Kuchiki, a Shinigami (Death God) and member of the mysterious Soul Society. When a Hollow, an evil spirit, attacks Ichigo and his family, Rukia attempts to defeat the Hollow, but is wounded. To help him save his family, she lends Ichigo some of her powers, but something goes wrong, and Ichigo absorbs every last drop of her energy. Ichigo becomes a temporar

The art progression is very nice and I love how the fight panels are simplistic yet achieve the highest drama possible. A+ story telling. Orihime's character development is wonderful. So great to see.

Review of Bleach: Volume 1

New Characters to know:

[image error] Byakuya Kuchiki: A Soul Reaper captain, he is also brother to Rukia. Why he acts so cold and...nearly evil to the reader's mind is unclear.

[image error] Renji Abarai: The vice-captain or Lieutenant of Kuchiki, he seems to know Rukia well but then why does he look like he's trying to kill her.

*The Gush*
One of the best of the early volumes. The fight between Ichigo and Renji is awesome and Byakuya Kuchiki does not get enough

Ichigo Kurosaki is portrayed in this book as a brave, and confident character. Him and his friends were looking for their friend Rukia and he set himself out to do it himself with no help because he is confident and brave, "Im gonna go Soul Reaper and find Rukia myself". When all of Ichigos friends were in danger he fought for them against Renji and won. "Is that sword just for show?, you talk too much". Ichigo is brave and confident because he is always the one in his friend group to go out and ...more

Bleach, Vol. 07: The Broken Coda is a traditional Manga book. This was my first exposure to a Manga book so it took me a while to get used to reading it right to left, back to front. I found myself wanting to read the left page first. It was also a little difficult to understand some of the text because of the language/names that were used (Ichigo Kurosaki, Nuki, Rukia, Renji Abara, Kuchiki, Orihime). I did appreciate the translations underneath the pictures, for example: Shihakusho is a soul ...more

Bleach 7 takes the series in a new direction. The fallout from Ichigo and Uryû's Hollow competition leads to Rukia's arrest. Can they save her from certain execution?

Most of this volume is a long drawn out fight between Ichigo and Rukia's captors. Lots of sword play and posturing.

Needless to say, Ichigo gets his ass handed to him. In all of this abuse he begins to learn that he might have powers and strength beyond what Rukia has given him. He also learns first hand the prejudices of the Soul So

Először is. Imádom a borítót. Byakuya az egyik kedvencem, és örülök, hogy végre ő is feltűnik.
Rukia sokáig bujkál az Élők Világában,de az ember nem bujkálhat örökké. És íme, megérkezik érte a bátyja Byakuya és annak hadnagya Renji,aki gyerekkori barátja Rukia-nak. Ebben a kötetben már látni, hogy végül is merre akar tartani a történet.
Ichigo elveszíti minden shinigami erejét. De Urahara felajánlja neki, hogy segít visszaszerezni. A lókötő Urahara.. Háh.. Az a pasas haláli. Yoruichi is felkészíti
Rating: * * * 1/2

Bleach, Volume 7: The Broken Coda kicks off with Renji and Byakuya serving up some serious ass-whooping. Byakuya's silent strength is so scary good!

This volume focuses on Ichigo's training to prepare him to enter the Soul Society. Since Kisuke is doing the training, there is a lot more of him in this issue. Woohoo!

Although there isn't much action, it was still really entertaining. I think this volume and the next will build the excitement for when Ichigo finally gets to the Sou

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 fe

This book is about Renji and Byankuga going to the real world and their looking for Rukia. Rukia knew they came so she left Ichigo's home with a note. After Ichigo read the note he started to run after Rukia as a soul. Ishida fought too to defend him and RUkia and got hurt so did Ichigo but they go saved. Rukia got brought to soul society to get EXECUTED.

Ichigo vs Renji and Byakuya. We get more hints on how much power Ichigo has. Unfortunately, he is not able to defeat two real Soul Reapers. Rukia is taken back to Soul Society, and even though she acts tough, you can see that it is all just a front. We get some hints into Rukia's past. Ichigo looks like someone she used to know, and Byakuya is her adoptive brother who from the way it sounds, doesn't really care about her. The second half of the volume deals with Urahara training Ichigo and ...more

This book is abuot Rukia getting taken away by her step brother because she broke laws in Soul Society, which is where spirit reapers live. Ichigo feels that he was the cause for Rukia's demise and so he attempts to rescue her. However, he was not strong enough and so he accepts training from a store owner, who's secretly disguised as a former captain from Soul Society. When Ichigo got stronger, he traveled to Soul Scoeity.
Jenni Noordhoek
This one's really 4.5 stars. Gotta say that the guy in the funny hat & sandals is pretty mean to poor Ichigo. He just wants to halp his friend; do you have to get such fun out of putting him through such brutal training??

(That being said it's all familiar territory to anyone familiar with the tropes of your ordinary action film or tv series of this genre. Just moves slower because it's manga, which is fun.)
