The Soul Society arc finally appears to be drawing to a close. In this volume, Renji fights Byakuya, Zaraki fights Tosen, Gin baits Rukia--and Rukia gets to look pretty, helpless and tragic as her death approaches and the Soul Society erupts into chaos all around her. I was glad to see Rukia, but I am very much looking forward to seeing her taking an active role in events once more. The damsel-in-distress role doesn’t suit the character I first met, and loved.

As always, I love the character desi

Redder than the rose, whiter than the lily

So many fights going on and the execution draws nearer and nearer. (view spoiler)

Are you freaking kidding me? For how many more volumes are they going to fight to save Rukia!? This volume was just fights. And talking. Good Grace, they talk too much! Are you gonna use those swords or chit chat to death!? I'm seriously thinking of skipping a couple volumes. Action is cool, but can we have some actual plot now?

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 fighting is no longer reduced to Ichigo and the others that came with him. One of Ichigo's masters will now fight.

A kötet első felét imádtam. Renji és Byakuya harcolnak egymással, és én csillogó szemmel olvastam el. Nem tehetek róla, Byakuya az első számú kedvencem. Persze Renji vereséget szenved, de már elérte a bankai szintet, amin Byakuya teljesen meglepődik. Végre valami emberi reakciót is mutat.
Ken-chan harca most nem kötött le. Inkább azért, mert az ellenfeleit nem nagyon kedvelem. Vagyis inkább olyan semlegesek.
Hisagi bajban van. Yumichika megmutatta neki a valódi erejét.
Ichimaru szemét, de valamiért

First things first, this strangely naughty cover has absolutely nothing to do with this storyline. Nada.

Bleach 17: Rosa Rubicundior, Lilio Candidior is my favorite volume so far in this series. Captains fight against other captains with insane abilities, resulting in battles that are monumental!

Renji and Byakuya duke it out in an epic battle. Byakuya is seriously one bad heartless mutha'ucka. I hope this isn't the end for Renji.

Zaraki throws down with Kaname Tosen and Sajin Komamu

So many battles going on! Ichigo continues training, and we only see him for like one or two pages in this whole volume. Kenpachi fights Tosen and Komamura. I just want to say that I think Tosen is pretty bad ass, and his bankai is freaking awesome. Renji races to save Rukia from her rapidly approaching execution, but is stopped and defeated by his captain, Byakuya. Byakuya might just be the biggest jerk ever... And the cliffhanger at the end of this volume is that Rukia's execution is starting. ...more

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

Red like the senses of a beast
White like the heart of a god
Red like molten hatred
White like chilling cries of pain
Red like the shadows that feed on the night

 Rosso come il sangue

rosso come la solitudine
bianco come il silenzio
rosso come i nervi di una belva
bianco come il cuore di un dio
rosso come l'odio che sgorga sciogliendoti
bianco come il dolore che ti agghiaccia

Seventeen is a good number. I like seventeen.

I really enjoyed this volume! Yoruichi is a great character and her feature on the cover is quirky and different to some of the others :)

The training which Ichigo is put through is intense, but I know that it is worth it! Hopefully he'll be able to rescue Rukia! I know he can do it!

I love IchiRuki. So much. Hehehe.

Bleach. Strange title. Closer to Rukia. I'm afraid I can't give much more thorough reviews than this.

(Except that this title is really fun - it's Latin for Red as Blood, White as the Lily. If my memory serves. Which it might not, but it's close enough, anyway. You get the idea. VERY poetic title, in any case!)

Rukia is very much the princess who needs to be saved in this volume; she displays hardly any of her typical attitude and internal fortitude. Soul Society's already weak faith in this execution grows weaker as Renji fights his own captain, and other battles begin. Byakuya sure is lucky I have faith in him.

Now 1/2 the Captains have decided to save Rukia and the others, well ... my new favourite character is Kenny aka Kenpachi Zaraki who battles Tosen. The Ryoka have separated and Ichigo is trying to get his Bankai sorted. Tosen's Bankai seems to be a stolen circus tent, evidently. I am hoping that Ichimaru gets a bollocking at some point, so lets hope!

Zaraki Kenpachi is nuts, but he's also one of my favorite captains. Also, his 11th Division is the most likable one, I would say. They are all a bit wrong in the head but they are also bound by deep friendship, understanding and amused tolerance for each other and it's beautiful.

I'm finding it harder and harder to keep track of all the people. Large sections of the book are enjoyable, but the plot seems to have slowed down a lot because we have to see what everyone is doing and I can't even tell them all apart anymore.

I've said it many times, but I love this manga. It's great, honestly it is. The ending was brilliant, finally what we've all been waiting for. Except this volume was a hell of a lot of fighting, little talking. All these separate battles bored me slightly :p

This one had some pretty epic battles...I am very pleased! After this volume, I can say that Renji is swiftly becoming my favorite character. And "Kenny" (Kenpachi) went totally beast mode in this volume. I think he's my second favorite now. Dayum. Both kicked ass and took names. Awesome.

if i don't compare it with any other Manga novels then, it was a great experience to read this series.
the whole concept of Soul reapers, soul society,.. was neatly implemented.
And not to forgot it sure is a page turner.

so Worth 4 stars out of 5.

Kaname, if your bankai prevents him from using sight, sound, and smell, why are you talking to him?

Nice cover, Kubo sensei.
