Goodbye Parakeet, Good Night My Sister
Immediately after checking into the Kurosaki Clinic with a mysterious scar on his back, the muscle-bound Chad goes AWOL. Accompanying Chad is a talking parakeet imbued with the soul of a young boy named Yūichi. It doesn't take newbie Soul Reaper Ichigo Kurosaki long to surmise that a Hollow must be involved. By far the strongest spirit

Continuation up to Vol 646+

I used to ship these two:


But *spoiler alert* when I found out that Nanao is Shunsui's niece, then I abandoned ship immediately. Fuck this.

I'm still at The Thousand-Year Blood War arc and holy shit, the Soul King (the most powerful being in all Seireitei is fucking useless. How can you stand there and let the enemy stab you without even lifting a powerful finger?!

Fucking useless, I say.

Another thing...

Aizen is here and he's still the most badass villain ever to grace

Is your favorite type of genre anime? If you like anime and action books, this will be the one for you. The book, Bleach volume 2, is written by the author Tite Kubo. Tite Kubo is a very interesting man, he has won quite a few awards. He has a wide variety of books to choose from. The genre of my book is manga, the manga is a type of Japanese comic book. I feel like young adults who like manga or Japanese culture would like this book. Bleach is a good way to stay entertained and it is very inter ...more

This volume is even better then the first. We get to meet Chad and Mr Hat and Clogs. We get more info on Hollows and we get to know Rukia more. We also see poor Karin getting sick over this poor suffering soul of a little boy. We also learn that Ichigo doesn't like killing. He saves the Mod soul even after the damage it caused in his body. This volume was very action packed.... this whole series is going to action packed so that's a given. Overall, this manga series is going to be one heck of a ...more

Really Good.
I have the next 4 books to read and im really excited to see what happens next.
I'm unsure what the actual plot is; i know what the books are about, im just wondering when it will all become clear what ichigo has to do, as currently im kinda lost.

At the beginning I wasn't enjoying it but then it became more interesting. I Didn't love it but it was a nice fast read with action and mild comedy. I'll probably continue with bleach maybe to vol.3 to see if it gets better.

I enjoyed it however there wasn’t anything else happening besides Ichigo and Rukia fighting hollows. It seems very repetitive at this point

If you like action thrillers and like books to keep you on your toes, then this book is right for you. Tite Kubo, he has written the Bleach series and it's all like an anime kind of book series. He has won no awards, no best sellers or something of the type. His style is Manga and he contains an extremely artistic way to write his books. The Bleach series book orientation is backwards. Journey Fiction, that's the genre of my book. I believe the folks that fancy anime would like to browse this bo ...more

I already mentioned my newfound love for this series. I can't stop reading it. I finished this volume not too long ago and I am already on the third (thank you, Library). I did not expect to like this series. Rukia and Ichigo are still my favorites, with Orihime and her friend (whos name I keep forgetting) following close behind. I still love the story and the art, and the characters are very likable. I especially liked how (view spoiler) drastically changed in t ...more

It is one of many Bleach books , I read first 5 and I all of them are great. Stories about Ichigo and Rukia are very interesting and their fight for good has a lot of action. This book is fiction written by Tite Kubo and it is very interesting. It has action,funny moments and because it is fiction,you want to keep reading it over and over again, because you just want to see what will happen. Book is very nice and it is graphic novel,so you can have scenes how book looks through the whole story. ...more

Chad disappears from the Kurosaki Clinic with a talking parakeet containing the soul of a young boy named Yuichi. Rukia and Ichigo quickly realize a hollow must be involved.

The first half of this volume was so weird and stupid. I didn't care one tiny bit about Yuichi and the dumb parakeet. So maybe I'm a sociopath or something but it came out of left field and it was gone in a flash. How could I possibly care?

The second half with the mod konpaku was more interesting to me. I guess we'll see what

This is not one of my favorite parts of the series because it is one of the slowest episodes in the anime and in the book. I could tell that the author did put great work into it but he could have put a little more dialog in it. Icchgo did have his hands full. MR.hat and clugs, sold them back merchandise that could end up hurting the real world.

Bleach #2 is even better than the first one. I'm getting to know the characters better (and I finally met my son's favorite character... the one he wants to dress like) and am liking them. Last night I read for longer than I should've again. One thing I will definitely say about these books: there isn't a good place to quit reading.

After the strange encounter with the Hollow, Ichigo takes Chad to his family’s clinic to be treated. But the next morning, to his dismay, Chad has disappeared! Ichigo questions his friends but no one has seen him. Rukia is helping Ichigo search, but she has no sense of any Hollow presence. Ichigo has the idea to feel for Chad’s parakeet’s spirit presence, although Rukia claims it is too faint to detect. When Ichigo manages to detect it, she is rather taken aback and greatly surprised. Chad and ...more

Bleach, Vol. 2 continues where the previous tankōbon left off and contains the next nine chapters (8–16) of the on-going manga series.

With Rukia Kuchiki's help, despite not seeing his opponent, Yasutora "Chad" Sado holds Shrieker at bay before Ichigo Kurosaki eventually arrives and defeats the Shrieker. As Shrieker was originally a murderer in life, he is dragged through the Gates of Hell instead of dissolving into the Soul Society. However, the spirit that inhabited the cockatiel is released to

Now, while the Chad + parakeet story is great (because Chad is just lovely), what I truly love about this volume is Kon (Well, he's just the mod soul in this, not Kon yet). Just, "I exist! I should have the right to live and die freely!!" is truly amazing, and how lucky he was to survive and his decision to not kill anything is all just incredible (and him saving those kids, and the ants!) and I love it all and him. However, it's kind of a shame that he's so underutilized as things continue, bec ...more

I enjoyed it. I've never read hardly any manga at all but I'm trying to be more relatable with my friends. So here we go. The part with the bird took up like half the novel though. I think it does add more insight into Kubo's world and what hollows and souls are capable of. The fighting scenes are really fun and we see new monsters with new capabilities. We also see more about the soul that is pushed in with the bird's soul. The concept of souls being able to be manipulated and such just seems p ...more

Day after day, my brothers and sisters were killed. Then I got lucky and got shipped out with a load of goods by mistake. Still, I always expected to be discovered and destroyed. I had a lot of time to think about things. I decided no one has the right to take a life. I exist! I should have the right to live and die freely!! Like humans, or even bugs. Even a mod should have that right. So I refuse to take a life. I won't kill ...not anything!” 13 likes
