Această manga cuprinde rezumatul primelor 21 de povestiri din mult-cunoscutul anime ‘Bleach’; avem un interviu special cu creatorul întregului anime şi serii manga, o povestire amuzantă la sârşit şi zeci de fişe de personaje, care mai de care mai interesante.

De la iniţierea lui Ichigo în devenirea unui Soul Reaper până la întâmplări morbide şi traume în care diferite creaturi au măcelărit zeci de familii. Drumul către adevăr pare a fi încercănat cu zeci de obstacole şi prejudecăţi ce se formează

i had high expectations for this book, i expected it to be rammed with exclusive information, lengthy profiles, a glossy poster i hadnt ever seen before sheet after sheet of stickers and much much more, as described on the sales pitch. i was sorely disappointed when i actually read it and the info was actually just telling you what is drawn in the pictures. its like theres a panel of Orihime cheering Ichigo on and the "info of hope" reads "Orihime then stood up on her hind legs and tells ichigo ...more

Bleach SOULs. Official Character Book is a comprehensive character guide that will help you catch up on the Soul Reaper arc of the series. The pages are in all black-and-white artwork, with detailed descriptions of all of the characters. There are bonus stories and an interview with Tite Kubo himself.

It was interesting to see the progression of how the characters have been drawn. At the start of Bleach, all of the characters look like kids. It's amazing how young Byakuya and Renji

This isn't really a story book. This book is about all the characters in Bleach series. It tells memories and interesting parts of episodes or Bleach volumes. The main character in all books is so obvious. It is Ichigo. I know why Ichigo is the main character but i can't explain it. I like the way the author wrote this specific book because it finally has pictures and it tells you everything about Bleach. In other Bleach books they don't have colors, but if you read it and gets into it then it's ...more

I bought this only because it's collectible. Aside from that, I virtually haven't read anything from this book. But if you are Bleach fans, you should have this one before it's getting rare.

Inside this book is a comprehensive data and biographies of Bleach's cast. It's more useful for these who are looking complete data of the characters.

This is a very useful character file and has probably everything you need to know about the characters up until book 21. I love the layout of the book and it has some cute freebies in the front that include stickers and posters. I would recommend this book if you're a serious BLEACH fan but in the one that I got I couldn't help but cringe at the sight of so many spelling mistakes.

This has lots of good info about all the characters and events of Bleach up until volume... Ugh, I don't remember. Until the arrancars start showing up. There are some really funny bonus comics, and also on one page (I believe the one that lists all the captains and assistant captains) Renji is speaking in Japanese. XD

VERY useful!!! If you missed any minute detail about Bleach for volumes 1-19 or so, definitely pick this up. Gorgeous extra art from Tite Kubo, an interview with him and Ichigo's voice actor, and even the original short story. GREAT book!

This book introduces characters from the start of the series till about the part where Ichigo goes to the Soul society and saves Rukia.

Its a must have to complete your manga that you read if you want have character reference.

I didn't see much point to this. It was redundant for anyone who's read the beginning of the manga, it didn't really include any new information but it also didn't have enough for someone unfamiliar with the series.

For Bleach fans, this is a great book. It certainly cleared some things up for me which I was confused with. I also had a lot of fun reading it. (and got free stickers!) Unlike other books, I finished it really quickly because there is not a lot of text.

Watching Bleach gets me all confused on who the characters are and what their history and powers are. I need this book to help make it work in my head. Plus, there are stickers!

That was all I need for a cringe attack week actually. That means a lot and thanks a lot to Tite Kubo.
