[OFFICIAL] Bleach - No more new threads about this





B3r3tta
I just finished watching episode 52-53 which is the last episode available at the moment and I have this to say about the series. It is simply amazing. It has in my opinion very little flaws. If you haven't seen or want to see it there are many sites that have it for direct download. You can also find it on torrent sites or any P2P.

Here is a quick summary:
Ichigo Kurosaki is a 15-year old boy with an angry face. He also has the ability to see ghosts. This brings him trouble when one day, he meets a Death God named Rukia Kuchiki, one who destroys Hollows, destructive beings created from dead people who are left on Earth. In an incident with a Hollow, Rukia transfers her energy to Ichigo, to create him into a Death God. As mysterious new characters arise, Ichigo must learn that the Hollows aren't his only enemy, and to destroy them, he must learn the way of a Death God.
Kurosaki Ichigo is not a regular 15 year old, because he has always had the ability to see spirits and ghosts. One day, a female Shinigami (God of Death) named Kuchiki Rukia appears before him, hunting for an evil spirit. But during the confrontation, the Shinigami's powers are transfered to Ichigo. Thus begins the adventures of Ichigo and Rukia and their mission to herd Hollows (fallen spirits) as well as confronting other spiritual beings.

Bleach is awesome. So is naruto except when it's destroyed on CN.
Revo-X
Bleach is fun-filled and exciting. ^_^
And what do you mean destroyed by CN ? What's CN? Surprised
nakamaru
Cartoon Network smart one. Destoryed as in poorly dubbed and chopped to pieces.

Well Revo could just not have cable or live in a place were there is Cartoon Network.
I never seen Bleach...I may kind of want to see it, but it doesn't look too intersting to me.
PristonMaster
bleach is the best anime i ever had seen in my life!1!!!
the history, the characters, the design is all good
i was looking for more information about this anime and it have been the most wanted anime in japan, the first place anime!!

driftingfe3s
Bleach is awesome! I haven't watched the recent episodes, but I'm caught up on the manga. Its getting really good right now.

Any one have any cool Bleach memorbelia? I'm thinking of getting my girlfrined a plush Kon (she also likes bleach) and maybe something for myself.

Yeah I was probably in a bad mood when I wrote that. It doesn't look interesting at first but it is after you watch even the first episode. I thought the plot was stupid sounding when reading summaries but Bleach defitely is one of the best animes of all time. You can get the old episodes at getitfido.com in the downloads section. Just make sure you have a good popup blocker.
Scaramanga
I would say that ANYONE who says that Bleach is the best anime EVAR(!!!1!) probably hasn't seen very much anime. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy Bleach, I just don't think it's the end-all-be-all of anime. It's a fairly straightforward shounen-fighting title (see my comments in the Naruto thread,) that has a pretty simplistic story (so far, although I will admit recent episodes may be developing that somewhat.)
Dragate
I agree... it's not THAT good, it's okay... used to be much funier
Pistol
too bad it had to take an arc out of the storyline. The arc just messed up the anime
mtoni
I have seen Bleach from the beginning (so i have to wait every week :S)
and i simply love it. I think it's even better than Naruto cuz Naruto have a lot of flashbacks, and repeats from earlier episodes.

Bleach has a good mix of action and humor and I like that
Garnet
I thought the Bleach anime did a great job of following the manga and for once having it be just as good. The music for that show is perfect too, season 1 opening was excellent! I havne't seen anything after ep 56, since I've been reading the manga up to the latest and it still gets a little tireing watching a show when you know exactly what's coming. I like that it wasn't like FMA where there's way way way too many "filler eps."

As far as it being the best anime - I would say it's super good, but not quite as good as other one's in it's catagory like Naruto, cowboy bebop etc.
sunrise
I used to like Naruto, but after it went off on its arc, I stopped watching it for Bleach. I haven't been able to watch the last few episodes, but I have read what happens, so I'm still updated. Bleach has a lot more global characters than Naruto, meaning they have Mexican, black, etc. characters, so it's a bit more interesting just for that. It also has the teddy bear. Wink
Garnet
Yeah I enjoyed that about Bleach too, and I thought it was pretty fun that there were shinigami from other ethnic backgrounds. Yeah of all the little animal mascot thingies ( p-chan, tama-chan etc) Kon's the best. Granted, he isn't really an animal, but that's sort of the role he got.
ddukki
Anyone read Bleach? I've gotten into this manga so fast. I read the available 216 chapters within the last week. Probably finished within the first four days.
TeK
The Bleach manga is definately one of my favorites. Good story, with awesome characters.
eku53ru
I love the Bleach manga; I own nine of the tankoubon and I've been following the chapters as they've been released in Weekly Jump. I'm up to chapter 217.

The latest arc is sorta odd to me, though, with the Arrancar and Visored (ARANKARU, VAIZAADO, whatever XD). Plus, there's the stuff going on with Ichigo and his classmates, courtesy of the most recent chapters. Eh?
NewGuyinTown
I watch the Anime... and there is no storyline. Atleast it doesn't make a lot of sense. Some parts are funny.

Never read the manga. I don't like reading mangas for some reason.
Garnet
Ah I've been keeping up with the manga too, but the last little bit has been boring me a bit. I'm not crazy about all the new guys but I'm still super happy Rukia's back. I love the chapter pages are still so artistic and cool-looking like magazine ads Very Happy
driftingfe3s
I read Bleach manga. Recently I'ts been getting a bit slow.. and the last battles were not that exciting. Hopefully we'll see some bad ass shit happen soon.

Heh, same here. Though it seems something interesting might happen soon; however, to me it seems like a (somewhat) repeat of Ichigo's battle with Zangetsu.
diddle
Ive read the manga, but I want the tv show to come to america!!! I dont want to learn another language just to understand people!!! D: makes me feel all sad inside.
Garnet
I heard a rumor it's being translated by FUNimation for Cartoon Network Sep.6/006. I'm really looking forward to it if that's true Very Happy

I would be really scared they'd butcher the voices though. Ichigo has a really good Japanese voice, Rukia too, and I can't picture a new English one.

I've read the mangascan but I havent see the anime. I've read about 20 volumes...
I hope the manga will be licensed in my country...

I think this is erroneous. It HAS been reported that Viz already has this (which would be far more likely than FUNI.) Also, I don't know where that Cartoon Network information comes from. There WAS an interview with the VP for acquisitions & co-productions over at Newsarama, in which she was quoted as saying:
Quote:
Bleach is great. The same people who do Naruto and Inu Yasha make it. It’s more of an Adult Swim show. It’s a bit more complex and slower, and it builds from one episode to the next.

This is NOT a confirmation that CN or AS have this property, just that it would probably go to AS if they DID. In fact right before this she was asked directly about any new anime properties coming, and her answer was essentially a 'no comment' and that Naruto is still the hottest thing out there.

Don't get me wrong, I'm SURE Bleach will make it out here soon, and I'm sure it'll be aired on TV (although probably NOT CN.) I just think this rampant rumour-mongering is ridiculous.
Urahara
If Bleach gets "english-lized" and airs here just like Naruto, it will fail.

English Naruto sucked so badly, none of my friends wanted to watch it. I'm hoping they'll do a better job on Bleach, but who knows. For me, anime isn't anime if it isn't in Japanese.

Uhhh maybe you and your friends didn't like it. That doesn't stop it from being one of the most popular anime currently on Cartoon Network. Just like Inu-Yasha it really brings in the fans.

Also, I just heard; it's official, Viz DOES indeed, have Bleach.
No word on when/where it will air though (I seriously doubt it will air on CN.)
Garnet
Good old Anime News Network Very Happy

Thanks for the information! It occurs to me I pretty much just helped the rumor continue Confused
I'm curious though, why don't you think that CN will get it? They have an eye for the biggies - why not Bleach? I'm thinking they would try their hardest to get that one.

Because one of their VPs in an interview already said she didnt' think it was CN material, but more likely to air on Adult Swim. Also if CN DID air it, it'd be in direct competition with their already #1 show, Naruto. They don't want to lose fans from that just yet. In fact that's the biggest reason why I don't think it'll be airing at all anytime soon. Give Naruto another 6 months or so and maybe then it'll air (which will probably be about right anyway, since they've got to dub Bleach anyway, which will take some time.) Also, the fact that Bleach is far more visceral and bloody than something like Naruto or InuYasha, pretty much guarantees that it won't air on Cartoon Network.

I have to agree with Scaramanga on this one. The dubbing's just horrible. It sounds so monotonous that it seems like they recorded just one session and said "be done with it!" Sure it doesn't stop it from being great, but it sure does take away the feel.

does anyone watch the anime? its really good rite now its at episode 73 they are subtitled u can find the on www.bleachportal.net it also contains info and stuff on the mangas

I wanted to watch some of the episodes, but none of the sites I try to find don't have direct downloads for the first couple of episodes. The closest I found were at Ep. 60 something.

I've watched every single episode. Hopefully the series stays good unlike Naruto. I really love this anime. I wish there were more good animes but sadly there aren't.

I saw Beach until the 53 episode. The begin is good... but when they go to seretei starts to be a ''cliche'' anime... like the series dragon ball, yuyu , etc =P

Will you people KNOCK it off! This show is licensed already and what you're doing is illegal. You'll have the anime soon enough.
Urahara
Everyone knows it's licensed. Take Naruto for example, no need to tell people what they already know, they probably won't care at all, take that screenshot of DB's "Naruto Licensed" for example.

Anyhow just watched the 46 minute special ep. 73, yes, it's called a "one hour special" but it's really not even 46 minutes cause of all the junk.

TWO HOUR SPECIAL coming up for anybody that has been missing Bleach. I'm just dying for all the action.

Uhhh and they sell anime DVDs outside the US too. zOMG! Also, I know for a FACT, that quite a few countries in Europe and South America have aired anime that we've never even seen in the US. And hey, if they don't have what you want in your country... IMPORT it.

import export/download send they r just about the same thing except and bleach isnt newhere else its new and just started airing in japan so u can't get it any where else
Yazz
If it's licensed and going to air on TV, then just download it. Honestly, think about it this way:

It starts on TV Tokyo, so no one anywhere else can really watch it. We download it. Then it airs in North America as well. On a network. That many people will pay for anyways.

We aren't actually even _stealing_ anything. It's not like we're only subcribed to the Cartoon Network because of this one show, so we'll unsubcribe to it now that we can download the series. That's retarded thinking.

Not only that, but the subtitled version is a thousand times way better than the dubbed versions. The voices and the way the Japanese language is makes the series so much better. Would you rather hear corny lines like, "I Will Defeat You!" in English? I don't think so.

For those reasons, it's totally justified to download whatever episodes we want. As for the Manga, not everyone has access to those. And not everyone knows they have access to those in the first place. Downloading them isn't just a choice for fans, its a neccesity.

So yeah, stick your opressive-self-justified heads out of your ass to take a breather and realize that what we download literally doesn't harm anyone.

Except the manga... yeah, we don't have a very solid excuse for that...

Oh well ^^

i just read Bleach, and i guess its okay...

I'll tell you what's retarded thinking... thinking that you should be able to get something for nothing. Hey kids, those shows COST MONEY to make. So when you decide to download them for free you ARE STEALING, end of story. Also when you watch something on TV, those stations and broadcasters have to PAY for those shows too. Cartoon Network doesn't just get those shows for free you know. And how do they make money then?? Advertising, pure and simple. So again, when you download a show off the internets, you're not helping CN make any money, you're just a huge leech. And here's the part that really ticks me off. You're the people that are hurting the self-same industry you say you support. The less people buy anime DVDs and watch licensed anime on TV the less and less will be licensed and produced. Nearly 50% of anime produced in Japan these days is produced with funding from the West. Take that funding out and you have less shows made. And anime is the big industry the way music or Hollywood is, they can't afford the lost revenues as well as those other industries.

So kids, stop lying to yourselves. If you REALLY want to support anime and manga, BUY it. And if it's too expensive, you're not looking hard enough. There are plenty of places online that sell anime and manga for cut-rate discount prices.

Oh yeah, really opressive. Boohoo, can't get your Japanese cartoons? Anime is a privledge, not a right, you bunch of whiners.
eku53ru
Bleach-wise, the fact that it airs on TV Tokyo doesn't matter; it airs in other cities as well, but TV Tokyo aided in its production, I think (probably wrong; if I am, feel free to correct). >.<;

I've friends in other parts of Japan that have been able to watch Bleach (and Naruto, for that matter, since that's a TV Tokyo series, too). If they can't find it on TV, they rent it. Simple as that. Most of the time they find it on a local channel, though. o_o;
lilrage
well bleach isn't on tv in the US so the only way we can watch it is 2 dl it and watching it subbed just makes me wanna c the dubbed on tv in the US even more so how is that not supporting anime or the channels that show it if it makes me wanna watch it on tv even more?
Tex_Arcana
I down load anime. I download a lot of anime, but I also buy a lot of anime. I download for three main reasons:

1. Not all anime shows will be licenced for the U.S.. If I want to watch something that is not likely to be aired on Cartoon Network, Adult Swim or Anime Network (I don't think a show like Shinigami No Ballad will make the cut, or Rozen Maiden) the only way to see it is through fansubs. I only keep fansub downloads on my harddrive (I don't burn them to cd or dvd) for a short time and then delete them. If they are licenced later and I liked them enough to watch again I buy them. Some of the titles I've bought after watching the fansubs include Please Teacher, FLCL, Excel Saga, Cowboy Bebop, and more (when I find them) and I don't mind paying retail since that supports the companies involved over say buying second hand. Examples of things I will buy when they are available are Bleach, Blood +, Full Metal Panic: The Second Raid, Ergo Proxy, and Honey and Clover. These are all shows I've watched on fansubs and liked them enough to keep watching over again. Some of these are already licenced. Some are sure to be licenced. One I'm not so sure of. At least I did get to see it.

2. Not all companies that licence anime will give you the pure unadulterated production (can you say Sailor Moon?). If they think that they can get away with gutting an anime to make it more acceptable for a certain audiance they will do it and have done it. Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon in japan is not a show for little girls. Sailor Moon in the U.S. is. If anyone is hurting anime it is the companies that edit the material to suit a certain audiance (can you imagine Midori No Hibi being about a boy and his hand puppet?).

3. Watching fansubs allows me to preview the material before I buy it. I learned the hard way that just because an anime has a large fan base that it doesn't mean I will enjoy it. Going on the numerous good reviews of Neon Genesis Evengelion I bought the box set and the movie. That was a huge waste of my money. A lot of people may like NGE but not me. It was fairly expensive to find that out.

Am I ruining the anime industry? Well, I'm not buying anime that I know I don't like any more, but to balance that out, I am actively looking for titles that I do like and confidently paying full price for those titles. The way I watch fansubs I see as no different then having a friend record a show for me to watch that I would otherwise miss. Please feel free to rant all you want but don't say that fansubs are ruining the anime industry. If all the shows were made available in a form that was not all hacked up and censored there would be no need for fansubs at all.

You are right that we need to support the anime industry but on the other hand the anime industry needs to support it's fans as well with better quality dubbing and subbing, less (or no) editing, and the ability to experiance more niche programs that may not be the "next big hit on Cartoon Network". I say quit your harping and down load some anime then delete it when your done watching it. I bet you will find some great shows you would never get to watch otherwise.

Tex, you seem to be under the impression that I think all fansubs are evil. I don't. I myself, download fansubs as well... of unlicensed shows. And like you, I BUY the shows on DVD that I liked. Yes, fansubs are a great way to preview shows that you might not otherwise know anything about. The problem is, not everyone does this. In fact, I would say that sadly, we are probably a minority. My initial issue is with people in these forums posting links to obviously illegal subs of shows that either already available (on air AND on DVD) or are already licensed and will soon be getting a release.

Tex_Arcana wrote:

I never once said or implied this. I am simple saying that the people who would rather DL fansubs or buy bootlegs than support the actual releases are damaging the anime industry.

Uhhh, this may come as a shock to some people but anime companies like ADV and Geneon are just that, COMPANIES. They are in this to make money, not to pander to minority fan interests. True, if a release is bad, then yes sales are usually poor, unless it's a VERY popular show. Also, I sincerely doubt niche market titles will sell well, so it's no wonder most companies don't even bother with these titles. Hell, I was surprised when Funi licensed Kiminozo.
Tex_Arcana
Yeah, your right, I did misunderstand about your feelings about fansubs. I'm truely sorry about that. Looking at the dates in which those links are posted you were correct in pointing out that the posters were wrong in putting them up. Those links also violate the TOS of this site as well. Bleach (both manga and anime) is licenced by Viz.

Yeah I realize that ADV (I live in Houston, the home of ADV) and such are companies in it for the prifit and are unlikely to spend cash on a license that won't sell. Just my way of pointing out that there is a lot of anime out there that are great shows that will never see a U.S. license.

Sorry for the misunderstanding. Maybe I should wait until my second cup of coffee before posting next time. Embarassed

Bleach is a great anime ^_^ I started downloading the series at bleach portal but it totally stopped working :/ I think ichigo is such a good character and he is also very well designed ^_^

Indeed. Awesomely awesome anime.

Bleach is Licensed not long ago !! Too bad i couldn't finish all the episode.. guess i got to spend some money to buy them now Mad

I love it.
While it does seem to have a ‘monster of the day’ type of format, it’s interesting to see Ichigo’s transformation from a somewhat normal high school student into a Death god.
It’s similar to Yu Yu Hakusho but the ‘humans fighting spirits’ theme works better here. The secondary characters are fairly typical (the cute girl, the tough girl, the tough untalkative guy, etc.) and that works well.
They can all survive a few scenes on their own but there is still a team feeling when they are together.
I’m looking forward to seeing more of the show, just to see how far they can take this before going too far.
sceptileex
bleach is not bad. Especially the manga part. Latest chapters are real good. Aizen sousuke and his arrancars, vaizards helping ichigo train up the hollow in him, its all etting really good. Well, i guess, anybody else really reads the manga? If not i guess its a spoiler huh Razz The latest ANIME episodes ( 70++? ) really suck. Fillers, as normal. I would recommend anyone not to watch them.

I agree. Though the most recent chapters with the Visored (Vaizard, VAIZA-DO, VAIZAADO, whatever you'd like XD) aren't really surprising me. I'm starting to think that I should wait for the tankoubon to come out before I read 'em - Bleach is starting to seem easier to digest in compilations versus installments. >_<

As for the fillers, it seemed like another mini-arc to me; I've only watched the first episode of the filler arc, though.
icekachu
I was just wondering. Do you guys who has seen the manga get less interested in the anime version later on?

I refrain from reading the manga so that the anime can give me much more excitement and suspense as it build its own story. The bad thing is there are fill-in stories which deviate from the main story line. Haiz

I think it depends on the person, actually, and what their preferences are.

I read the Bleach manga first because that's all that was out for me when I got into the series. When I found out about the anime, I gave it a try and found myself not liking the series from the first episode. Don't get me wrong; I have loved anime adaptations of manga series before (and 'cause of that, I've watched series to their end), but Bleach just wasn't a title like that.

Another reason might be that I personally don't like Studio Pierrot, but hey - that's just me. :3

::SPOILER BEWARE::

The series drops off the main Manga plotline after the Soul Society incidents and kind of parallels the two. I don't really mind the change but I think they should have made it a bit smoother. Like make the manga branch after the new Anime branch.

What do you guys think?

The problem is comparing the two. Like you said, when a film is made from a book, there are often quite a few changes. It best to treat them both as totally seperate entities and not try to reconcile one with the other. A movie adaptation of a book can still be a good movie, even if it's not 100% true to the original source material. Same goes with manga and anime. I think the Bleach manga and anime are both good in their own right. However, that being said, you have to understand that just about every anime made from an ongoing manga series is likely to have filler episodes, just so it doesn't pass the manga by (and end up with a crappy ending like the first Hellsing series.)

I only watch the anime and I think it's really good actually. Good animation, good storyline. Too bad they are stuck with fillers now though. Hope they don't follow Naruto's crappy example of 50 fillers in a row.

We aren't actually even _stealing_ anything. It's not like we're only subcribed to the Cartoon Network because of this one show, so we'll unsubcribe to it now that we can download the series. That's retarded thinking.

I'll tell you what's retarded thinking... thinking that you should be able to get something for nothing. Hey kids, those shows COST MONEY to make. So when you decide to download them for free you ARE STEALING, end of story. Also when you watch something on TV, those stations and broadcasters have to PAY for those shows too. Cartoon Network doesn't just get those shows for free you know. And how do they make money then?? Advertising, pure and simple. So again, when you download a show off the internets, you're not helping CN make any money, you're just a huge leech. And here's the part that really ticks me off. You're the people that are hurting the self-same industry you say you support. The less people buy anime DVDs and watch licensed anime on TV the less and less will be licensed and produced. Nearly 50% of anime produced in Japan these days is produced with funding from the West. Take that funding out and you have less shows made. And anime is the big industry the way music or Hollywood is, they can't afford the lost revenues as well as those other industries.

So kids, stop lying to yourselves. If you REALLY want to support anime and manga, BUY it. And if it's too expensive, you're not looking hard enough. There are plenty of places online that sell anime and manga for cut-rate discount prices.

Oh yeah, really opressive. Boohoo, can't get your Japanese cartoons? Anime is a privledge, not a right, you bunch of whiners.


Dude, what are you smoking. You make it seem like the West has bought out the anime industry. LOL. I know that some of the companies that own the series in Japan are one in the same as some of the companies in the US. Even so, the industry is HUGE. No way is 50% completely funded by the West companies, it might be funded by Japanese companies that have Western branches, but thats different. By the way, how do you think a Western company gauges whether to buy and translate an anime/manga??? It's the fanbase!!! Why else would they have released Naruto (best example) all those years after it came out, if not because of its amazing fanbase? It is also my understanding that some of the companies in in Japan don't mind subbing until it gets liscensed in the US and the US counterparts sue. Tell me if I'm wrong.

Next on the agenda, Not everyone who downloads anime is able to buy it. Some people i know live in countries that don't sell anime (yes, they still exist), and personally i cant buy the stuff over the internet (as I'm sure many other people can't), Think about it, not everyone has it like you Americans, or even like us Australians. Now here is my most heart felt point. Nowadays some companies liscense the anime early in the series, the earliest i remember was a few months after it came out, though other great animes don't get liscensed for years if they get liscensed at all, can you wait ten years? I can't! I could rave on for hours, but i still have stuff to do. So until next time.

By the way, don't get me started on manga!

That's exactly what I'm talking about. The storyline fillers are getting a little off track and I don't think that it's going to be easy to get back to the manga plot if they ever are going to.

i really like bleach, i've watched the eps up untill the current episode 78 and i've read the mangas untill chapter 80.
I don't think they should be translated, as with most translated animes, i fear bleach will suffer from poor voice acting.
Dragate
Yea bleach was funny... Key word "was"... It used to be so funny especially the first few episodes... *sigh* it's either I'm changeing and loosing my sense of humour, but personally, I don't think it's that funny anymore... The later episode fighting also get's really crazy where everyone is just like teleporting and fighting like DBZ... just my opinion...

Did you even read any of my posts? I don't have a problem with dl'ing fansubs of shows that are UNlicensed. Bleach, hoever, is NOT one of those shows. Also, you should really start paying attention to the credits of recent anime; if it says Geneon USA or Bandai Visual (and I think recently even ADV has got in on the act) these shows have received production funding from the US divisions of these companies. And even if a US company isn't in the credits, that doesn't mean they haven't already received licensing funds. Take last year for example, Geneon USA PRE-licensed the following big-ticket shows: Hellsing OVAs, Fate/Stay Night, Ergo Proxy and Shakugan no Shana. These shows had already had ALL the licensing paid for by Geneon USA before they even aired in Japan. But say a show isn't prelicensed, anime is an expensive business, and without the ridiculous sums of money some US licensors pay (especially for popular shows like Bleach and Naruto,) I doubt a good number of Japanese animation studios would be able to stay afloat in Japan's current economic climate.

I respect that some people just don't get anime in their country of origin. However, as I previously stated, anime isn't some inalienable human right, it's damn entertainment, it's a privledge, it's a LUXURY. Also, what's preventing people from purchasing things over the internet? Heck, even in China, which has one of the most oppressive internet censoring regime, people can still purchase anime. And if it's lack of a credit card or money, well that's not MY fault, nor is it the fault of the anime companies. If you WANT anime so much you could find a way to pay for it.

Like I said, this ties back to my point that I think it's acceptable to watch unlicensed shows on fansub.

Bleach oh boy thats a great manga and anime ive seen almost every episode/movie and currently have the mangas 1-12 in english (all that i belive is out in america) and its for sure one of my favorites.
sceptileex
Dude get real,you can talk all you like. Chances are, noone cares. We download the anime. So? Hate youtube and google video if you want. Those people who cant download them use those to watch. Waddaya gonna do? sue them? As for those who really download, them, its nothing wrong. Like it or not, THE ANIME DOWNLOADERS are the biggest source of income makers in a way. Look. Why the hell would a anime air in your town if noone watches it and noone even heard of it? Read the newspapers. Whenever they introduce a new anime to a new town, it will because there is a fanbase over there, who will then introduce it to their frinnds. Like it or not, we are indirectly helping them advertise. What do you think, they will introduce a anime to a pace where we didnt even hear of it before? Remember, its not just some small fry anime. Its bleach. Bleach has a huge anime fanbase in Japan. The licensing cousts are gonna be gargantuan. They gonna send it over here because noone heard of it? Fat hope. Ya wanna bet at most 1 out of every 10 people in the "anime fanbase" dosent have a freaking channel that they suscribe from japan. Its a openly known truth. We might not be completely legal, but those licensers know better than to stop us. Sure, they might be trying to cut down on us now. But like it or not, how sucessful their buisness is, it was partly our work. Call it innnocent thinking. Its the truth. In a way.

But anyway, the way the fillers are going on.... this wasnt a great time for the license Razz
Scaramanga
But what do you NOT understand about not watching a show once it's licensed? This isn't rocket science we're talking about here. And I've got news for you it ain't just the fansubbers who make shows like Naruto popular, they just make it accessible. I can walk in to just about any bookstore and pick up no less than four or five magazines that cover anime. I think it's this entitlement attitude that your generation seems to have towards things like this that really tick me off. Like I said, anime is NOT a priviledge or a right, it's a luxury item that is made by people who have to feed their families. If you want anime to continue, SUPPORT it (and no, watching fansubs does next to nothing to putting money in the production companies pockets.)

But hey, I'm willing to wait until the anime bubble bursts and downloading becomes so prevalent it's not as profitable a business anymore. Then I guess I'll be able to hear you ADD-addled kids whine "Wah, I can't get my Japanese cartoons anymore!" before you movie on to the next pop-culture phenomenon.
Lord Kuat
Initially I liked the series, but after a while it sorta loses its luster. It becomes the generic "hey look, I'm gonna reach power level XX to beat you!". Originally I enjoyed it for its quirkiness and the like, but it's becoming bland fare rather fast.

Meh, but I still have other manga to tide me over. I do hope it loses this pattern of upward spiraling power. Initially it was justified; now they can stop with the OMG new moves.

I would never EVER EVVVVEEEEEER watch anime on TV. I simply don't have the time (or it doesn't air where I live).

I would also NEVER EVER buy anime DVD box sets or whatever unless it has a huge sentimental value, which means I would've had to have watched it first.

And this isn't because the internet provides free downloads, it's because I've just never done it.

However, what I AM inclined to do is buy a lot of anime paraphrenelia such as gundam models, posters, toys etc. etc.

In fact, I was in Japan 3-4 months ago, and if I hadn't watched bleach through fansubs, I wouldn't have bought the immense amount of crap that I did.

I am willing to guess there are others like me out there.

I'm not saying it's morally correct for me to download fansubs, nor is it justified by me buying a buncha crap from the anime...

But there's just people out there that wouldn't give anime the time of the day if it weren't for free.
Inestical
hehe yay! Bleach is y no.1 anime + manga currently.

It sucks tho that the fillers are on now. I'm waiting still the arrangar and small kiddie taichou to get to the real world.

hmm.. the latest ep:

Keigo got pwned + some heroic words. and the ichigoHollow showed up! I was waiting to see him again, it made my day :p

I really like this anime for me it is more better than naruto. Death God rulez.
Boles Roor
Just to come back on the downloading issue, I download fansubs because of the originality, and usually better translated. Also listening to the US voicedubbing, it sounds bad, cheesy, and total crap. Most of the time just ruins the whole show.

Scaramanga: The "anime bubble" won't burst, if it will, just in the US. In Japan they won't notice, and they'll continue making anime. Fansubbers will keep subbing anime too, so we'll be able to watch our shows anyways.

I've read all bleach and i've seen the entire anime , i'll give my opinion of a post , i'm sure they won't air bleach on Cartoon Network because of al the blood and cruel scenes , and CN does get watched mostly by kids -12
yet i don't mind watching the subbed episodes of bleach , here is a link to all subbes anime of bleach , it's lower quality than downloaded versions , but at least it's streamed , you can find them all @ www.youtube.com along with almost every anime in excistence Very Happy

Uhhh, have you even SEEN the show? The main character has blonde hair that in the beginning people say MUST be bleached. Also, some people have speculated the cleansing of Hollows that shinigami do is akin to bleaching their souls, so in that respect the name applies as well.

not exactly >.> the name of the show was pretty much shown in ichirin no hana, it is the process of hollowfication. I still stand my point that fansubs help the industry more than it harms it, especaially for those who are not in japan. You say you can walk into any bookstore and see it, wulod you randoly pick up a book and read it? Whats worse, some bookstores dont even let youu read it Razz

Revvion
its nice especially the special bount story withs isnt in the manga, aldo i like the manga more.
scryoko
Yes, I agree. I love Bleach as well. Though I had first started reading the manga before the anime came out and... to be honest actually, I think the manga is better. Perhaps it was due to having already read the manga and getting used to it (or maybe I'm superficial in this aspect that I think the characters are drawn more better in the manga than in the anime... *cough*) but yeah, like mentioned, I like the manga better. Though, okay, superficiality aside, take how Rukia is drawn, for instance. I love how she's drawn in the manga better because they when you look at her, you can see that Rukia has lived for centuries and has seen the ugliness of life. You can see how much more wise she is. And in the anime, I don't really see that (as much). They drew her looking a bit more innocent and childish and Rukia, if anything, is not innocent and naive.

Though, admittedly, there are good things about the anime as well. The theme songs for instance. I do like some, though, God forbid, I can't dredge of their song titles right now. One is the first ending theme and the other is... er, the opening theme of the Soul Society Arc (hm... if there happens to be two or more of them... eep! I blame myself for not paying enough attention to them... *cough*). Okay, so granted, I didn't watch much of the anime. That isn't a very good argument then. *laugh* Yup, back to the superficiality thing. *grin*

To be honest, I like the Bleach fillers a whole lot more than Naruto fillers. This proves I like quality more than quantity, but I must admit that some Naruto fillers are a little on par and some provides me enough humorous amusement for me to keep watching those. The bounto? Yey! I just hope they don't do anything that will stray too far from the manga to continue its true course in the anime.

Heh, I really must say, I actually ENJOY the Bleach fillers, which I cannot really say for the Naruto ones. The only Naruto fillers I like are the humorous ones. All the serious ones are just very cliched and boring. It feels like the same thing is going on over and over again:

Tsunade give Naruto and what seems like certain set teams of the following:
Team Gai
Kiba and Hinata
Shino
Naruto and one of these set teams go out on the mission.
Some random female shows up, usually this female originally posed as a guy.
Naruto uses Rasengan and saves the day.

I cannot stand it anymore, it is getting way too repetitive for my tastes.

As for the Bleach filler though, it actually all ties in together, and is a really good story. I actually can say that I cannot wait to find out what happens next in the Bleach filler, whereas with the Naruto one, I just cannot wait for it to end!

I agree totally with you. The Bleach fillers doesn´t look like fillers, even now with some fukutaichôs in the real world, its a very good story indeed.

I'm not a fan of mangas but one day I looked the beginning of Bleach.
I think it's one of the best manga (with DBZ Razz). However the last season with the Bounto (or Bound) it's less good than the part in the Soul Society.

When Ichigo fight against Kuchiki and say : "Bankai" for the first time. Really great !!!

Humm....although this anime is fantastic, great action, great comedy, it is starting to fall on the "neverending anime", like Naruto. More and more nowadays is fashion to make animes huge like hell...

To be honest I like the Naruto main storyline better because of the reasons you don't like Naruto and like Bleach. After the whole Dragonball Z thing I don't like it when main characters get too powerful too fast because that defeats the purpose of "superpowers" and end in enemies reaching a new "superpower" status and it becomes repetitive. That and the Naruto storyline is much deeper if you look at it while Bleach is very one-dimensional though some things in the new manga changes that a little. Then again that makes me dislike it a little more, it seems like it's forced... that and I think Uyruu makes a better better couple with Inoue than Ichigo with Inoue, he seems more fit to be with Rukia... my opinion anyway.

Where have YOU been? Can you say Rumiko Takahashi? I'd say actually shows like Bleach and Naruto are the rare exception, and that most shows are getting shorter. that and there is a preponderance of OVAs these days as well, that you just didn't see like 10+ years ago.

Hey man, when Sandaime fought so hard and died trying his best against Orochimaru and when the funeral was given to all those who died defending Konoha, I felt something deep in here *points to heart*. It was very touching and deep. Then again I'm only making an anime comparison to what I have already seen which is not all the anime ever created.

I just watched episode 49 of bleach where Rukia tells about her dream the night before her execution and was excited to watch 50 which was the last one i had dl'd but when i opened the file it was a filler episode. Man was I pissed off.
Seithex
Bleach is a great Manga, but I can't say anything about the anime. The fillers no matter how superior they are to Naruto fillers are just annoying. I have given up on the fillers for Naruto and sometimes watch Bleach's. The Manga is a good place to be though. It's starting to get good, you manga readers know what I'm talking about. I only hope Kubo has some more surprises for the future of Bleach and what will happen after this point in the Manga.

I like Bleach and Naurto, simply because the anime has good char development, which many other good anime lack. Eg, one piece , Prince of tennis, are also excellent animes that have been going on for some time. (POT has ended though ), i dislike short-lived animes especially those which had the potential to go further then the typical b-rated 1s. I really liked samurai deeper kyo, sadly it was rush job and nothing good came out of it in the end.
Kurosaki-Ichigo
BLeach is one of my favourite Animes. Besides Naruto i think Bleach is the best anime formed in Japan. Theyve mixed Humor, Action and Drama (Like Naruto) In one Anime. There is a thing that is different in Bleach and Naruto which i dont know what but its definetly something that tells me that Naruto is better. Bleach is on its 90 second episode and will be airing in the USA in september. I hope they have good voice actors because when Naruto was Dubbed the voices had become like Dragon Ball Z and were too childish. Hope it comes out soon.

Yeah well, it would be nice if they stopped the Bleach fillers now, but unfornatly, that isn't possible at the moment.

Fillers are the storylines that keep the anime way behind the Manga, so theres not so much pressure of the animation company to make the episodes constantly.

Bleach is the best anime i had ever watch.
Its a best action,comedy,superpower,anime i had ever watch.
Best storyline,best fighting style,their characters are kinda CooL,
well the 1st or 2nd OP/ED song are quite nice song,1st OP,Asterisk.
However,the anime's version episodes are still unknown,i guess its still have a long way to go.
I hope Kurosaki Ichigo can handle it!! Twisted Evil

This week's episode (94) was boring absolutly nothing happend...and of course it ends right before Kariya and Byakuya start their battle. Evil or Very Mad

I personally think that the part where Ishida interfered was when it was supposed to end, but there was probably some problems getting into the next part of the manga (like Naruto) or they were asked to give the manga a little more time to gain a good lead, so instead of beating down all the Bounto, the gate was opened and viola, just hope it doesn't turn into seasons of fillers.
Boles Roor
It wasn't supposed to end when Ishida came and let them into Soul Society.

Remember when Kariya guy said he needed a Quincy? That was because he needed him to actually open the gate. But because Ishida lost his powers he couldn't open it. When Mayuri heared there were Bounto's, he wanted to get some live specimen, but was too lazy to get them, so he said he'd just get them to Soul Society. That's why he gave that bracelet thinger to Ishida, to regain his powers temporarily, so he could open the gate.

What I'm saying is that his powers were probably supposed to be used to whoop on the Bounto since it makes no sense to let a creature which can basically absorb all souls to be allowed to entered a place called Soul Society. Obviously they'll make a reason up later, but I'm pretty sure the opened gate really made just an extension. Yeah, yeah, Zaraki, right? Well he can use the SS gate to go there easily to fight with the traitor Shinigami.
Boles Roor
Zaraki doesn't care about Ichinose.

And I doubt Ishida was supposed to whoop the bounto. If he was, then it'd be a shame of actually starting a story in the fillers, they could've made lame fillers like Naruto, as killing the bounts at that stage would just hurt the series.

You're incorrect as it would have ended the fillers and gotten to the ACTUAL STORYLINE which BTW is MUCH GREATER than the fillers. That you should already know. The difference between the Naruto fillers and the Bleach ones if that Naruto fillers go up to a consecutive 5 or so episodes while Bleach has just stuck to one. Any time it ends, though it was a good filler would be a relief to me and many others. Besides, I like Ishida and watching him whoop all the Bounto would've made my day since the Bleach manga revealed something that might devastate little Uryuu.
Boles Roor
I KNOW that the actual storyline is much better. No doubt about that. But for fillers it's pretty good. There's just no way the fillers could've ended with Ishida killing the bounto at that part. If he did it would mean there would be another range of fillers in like half a year, because we caught up with the manga.. I don't really mind the fillers either, as they're not bad actually.

IMO, they HAVE to go to the soul society, because that way they caould catch up with the manga, as the manga starts from where they return to the earth from soul society, so thats what I think.

Anyway, after reading the manga, I know that Ichinose Maki can´t return to the Gotei 13 as he doesn´t appear in the manga, so I think he will die for Kariya Jin.

What are you talking about? The manga is quite far already from the time Ichigo and co. left Soul Society. They could easily expand the anime from what they have in the manga (and adding hopefully "good" fillers inbetween for a smoother transition from one part to the next). The anime would have to have everyone leave the same way they did before which would totally do harm to that episode (dejavus are BAD). And it's obvious that Ichinose won't make it further on as most filler-only characters don't get exceptions and move onto the real storyline since they were created by other people than the original creator of the manga.

Ahh... welcome to the reasons I don't watch dubbed anime anymore... that and I don't have Cartoon Network... and anime like Yugioh and Pokemon don't count because Yugioh stopped being anime after it officially ended (Capsule Monsters, WTF?) and well.. Pokemon stopped being anime after the first season or so. Don't take me too technically, it'd kill you if you knew me.

Well, I´ve read the manga till now, and all they say about that fight is something like "You return from seireitei..."

So that´s why the went to seireitei again, we can see in the manga Ichigo couldn´t use his bankai since he comes from the soul society, and in the fillers Ichigo crearly uses in more than two ocassions, so after this bound fight ends, they will return to kamakura and Ichigo would not be able to use his bankai again.

Ishida Uryuu will lost the artifact that gives him his power, so he will be powerless again.

However, someone saw the new look of Chad´s powers, it looks like they´d evolded...sweeet!

Okay... so it says "You return from Seireitei..." that means nothing. I can say, "So you came back from Mars, that doesn't mean it has to be right away taking into account a year hasn't passed yet, perhaps half a year maybe even (but that would conflict with the manga's events before Winter).

Technically a Soul Reaper makes more sense to be because the Shingami are really no Gods and thus do not even match God-status. However I do prefer Shinigami over Soul Reaper.

Can you not argue that with all the sub-fans whining about Bleach's supposed poor dubbing, that it won't last too long then? Bleach is by far my favorite show, but with all the negative publicity that the dub is receiving currently from sub-leechers, I really am not sure that the show will last too long, or in worst circumstances it could end up like Yu Yu Hakusho which got sent to Toonami to be forever doomed. The point is that Bleach is a solid show, but if people continue to ridicule the dub, we're going to see more and more negative protesting on things that are ridiculous. (I seriously heard on another forum about someone ridiculing Rukia's impression of the Japanese school girl voice...that doesn't even translate into English. Oh, and another time someone ridiculed the dub for Ichigo calling Orihime "Orihime" rather than "Inoue"...) Sorry, I start to rant on my favorite show every now and then.

Umm... that's great that you like the show and everything, but the fact is everyone has their own opinions. I personally haven't seen the dubbed version yet (though I probably never will as I do not have "expanded" basic cable and the fact that they have all sucked so far in comparison to the original Japanese versions), but people who have can certainly voice their opinions. And those who have never seen the subs will probably differ and thus the world is balanced. Please do not take it upon yourself to silence the public, we're not Communist or anything, geez.

I never said I wasn't giving the right of opinion to people. You've misinterpreted my constructive criticism of the lunacy of some hardcore sub fans. I was merely stating that it is indeed ridiculous to criticize a dub solely because of minute things that which I have named. I prefer the sub of Bleach, but Viz is doing a damn good job in translation and should receive the credit it deserves.

I wasn't aware that Viz is responsible for Bleach the anime. I thought they were only translation the manga. It's been awhile since I've seen an anime that is shown on Cartoon Network, but I've seen clips on YouTube.
rikuleonhart
Actually, so far, the manga translation has been FAR inferior to the anime translation (something I've never seen). There has been no mention of "Strawberry" for Ichigo's name, which is a plus. (even though it was intended as a pun originally) And Viz has kept almost everything plausible within the show (including OP/ED/alot of Japanese vocabulary).

Well, even with the bad Dubs, that's the way the anime gets into the mainstream. A lot of people didn't even know about Naruto or Bleach, or even Dragonball Z until it came onto Cartoon Network. Sure, you have internet sites who allow downloads for the episodes, but even that's illegal in certain, if not all, parts of the country. You can't just bash the dubs because that's how the people get paid. If they do it weird, voice your opinion directly to them. It won't help ranting about it on forums that those companies won't look at.

There's my soapbox. Sorry if I offended anyone, but this has been bothering me ever since the original Bleach topic got flooded with dub bashing.

Well the truth is that telling the company directly that their dubs are poor quality wouldn't really make any change. No, it's not because "a single person cannot change anything," it's that even if they did want to change the U.S. has a very limited amount of voice actors out there who will do that job. Comparing the Japanese seiyuus and the American voice actors in the category of TV anime/cartoon, the quality and quantity of the seiyuus pretty much topple their overshores peers. That is if they would do anything, which they won't since they're a U.S. company which means even a horde of people won't make a difference. It is until they lose a lot of money will they change. *sigh* The one in many faults of capatilism.

Usually the subbed episodes appear on the internet the night of the airing. However, sometimes an episode is extended or there's a special so one would find it the night after the airing. You can usually find it around 9pm-12am that night (or morning), and as for where can you obtain it... Well I don't want to get myself in trouble so I can only direct you to [url]Google.com[/url]. I'm sure you're smart enough to know what to type in the search engine.

BTW, this is all via .torrent (BitTorrent).

The art and animation is great. They are so detailed in making this story and the colors are awsome as well. I really dont have anything more to say on animation and art you just have to expirience it yourself.

Yea I must say the Bleach Anime is quite good. Even the fillers are interesting and meaningful to watch, whereas other anime fillers, e.g. Naruto, are just completely hopeless. I've given up watching that.

Actually you're wrong. The Shinigami girl and the rest of the scenes are actually from the upcoming Bleach Movie. They were taking a book from Naruto and putting preview screens in the opening to hype up the movie.

Actually I was joking. The relationship between both fathers is a mystery. But since the Quincy and Shinigami have had connections in the past, it might build off of that... or I could've been right in my hypothesis... who knows?

Im sure Ishida's new oath to not have anything to do with the Shinigami in return for his powers back will come into play.

On the otherhand he may ignore it and help out anyway.

Umm... duh... Ichigo is naturally evil.

No, it's just that Rukia is pure hence her pure white sword. And it being the most beautiful of all Ice type swords.

Oddly enough Hitsuyaga's is the most powerful of all Ice type swords.

Have you noticed they only give specifics to Ice type swords... that and dual swords.

Still makes you wonder what the heck that jewel was that aizen stole, maybe there'll be some battle between Ichigo and Rukia on some darkness/light thing, I'd hope not, cause that would cliche the series to no return

I'm really anxious about Ichigo's father and his role in all this. I know he used to be a Captain, from his torn up cape-like thing, but I wonder what ties he has to the whole series. And was his mother a Shinigami too? History repeats itself (Ryuuken)?

No Ichigo's mother was not a Shinigami or she wouldn't have been victim to Grand Fisher so easily.

I'm bringing this back.

So anybody like Episode 119? I enjoyed it cause it was background info on one of the coolest Shinigami in the series. Also the Shinigami Golden at the end was funny for once.

On one hand it did give us a history lesson and insight into a character we have known for a while. Suggesting that if he'd been willing to go further when Ichigo first came to Sarutai that he couldve stopped Ichigos progress.

Also it shows that Renji owes him quite a bit in terms of his fighting style, however. Now I want to see the vice captain fight...I know she has to be strong in some way, but id like to have this confirmed even if it is brief.
xj975
Good episode today, makes me curious as to what Ishida, Ichigo's father, Youricha, and Uharahara will play since these Arancar are going to be handled soon enough.

Ishida or Ishida's father? Because all you're going to see for awhile is Ishida getting his ass handed to him by his father... if they ever get there.

I think the Vaizards will be coming into the story. I think Ichigo is going to lose his fight and someone is going to come in and help him. We'll have to see how the others do since the restrictions have been lifted. I'm surprised Ikkaku won his fight while they were restricted. Perhaps he is stronger than most captains?

Restrictions are only applied to Vice-captains and Captains as pointed out in one of the earlier episodes so Ikkaku wasn't restricted like Toshiro and the others.

When Renji and them got ther limit release, the first thing that came to mind was "O sh*t, the vizard are soooo dead".

^You mean Arrancar? Looks like Ichigo has the toughest fight. Thanks for clearing up that restriction issue for me.

Yeah, I think he made a mistake. Because Vaizards seem to be at the Espada levels... at least from the few glimpse of them in the manga.

Wah! Have to wait until April 11th for the next episode! ;.; (But soooo glad that useless Bounto arc is over.)

Bleach is a really fun and engaging series -- perhaps not the most thogut provoking anime I've ever watched, but it's captured my fangirly heart and run away with it. >.>

Also, someone mentioned earlier the correlation between Icghigo's sword being Black and Rukia's being white? Maybe he's just supposed to be the yang to her yin...? (heh heh heh, let's watch the shippers get all cranky with that one!)

I was among the (few) surprised to find out that ichigo's dad was a shinigami as well, though I'm interested now to see the correlation between the appearance of both Ichigo's and Ishida's fathers -- and more info on the Kurosaki family. Why did his dad leave the Soul Society like Urahara & Yoroichi? Is Ichigo ever going to learn about his dad's real identity? (has any of this been answered in the manga? I have just been readign the Viz releases for the manga -- and that's still way back in the first arc.)

Well first *SPOILER ALERT*





Ichigo's father left Soul Society to start a family with his wife, but they never told us how he got to meet her.

Ichigo's father being a Shinigami wasn't surprising because it makes sense. Why else would Ichigo be so gifted spiritually?

Ichigo's Bankai and Rukia's Shikai is just one of many relationships between Ichigo and other Bleach characters. For one thing, Ichigo seems to be naturally talented in the field of being a Shinigami while Ishida is "untalented" as a Quincy as stated by his own father. Aside from being different, Orihime and Sado share similarities with Ichigo-if you can't figure it out there's no point in telling you anyway.




*SPOILER END*
Seiji
I also here that there was a past relationship between Ichigo and Ishida father? I hope Ishida returns to the story soon. I find his action scenes better than Ichigos.

whats up with latest bleach? the shinigami fighting versus the arancar who will win??? hmmm of course its the idiot kurosaki ichigo! lol but he's cool everytime he's manipulated by the dark ichigo ^^

Hollow Ichi is creepy. I do love when he fights through. Total ownage.

What is Hollow Ichigo's name? I've heard that it's his name backwards, Ikasoruk Ogichi, and some other weird name. Does anybody know for sure?
Seiji
^I'm not sure but it looks like now he will finally solve his Hollow problem. After seeing that girl control her Hollow, Ichigo's future looks promising. It will probably 5 episodes of him training though but I expect to see a lot of action and it looks like Ishida will be coming back into the series.
xj975
Its funny that Ishida has been considered a wimp before, it just hints at the true potential of a real Quincy, which is what the writers want to get at I assume.

Ichigo getting stronger, no suprise there, I just wonder how Chad going to train will turn out..

Ishida's not a "wimp." Rather I think the creator wanted to reaffirm that he's not as "gifted" as that crazy scientist captain gave him credit for.

Well hollow Ichi is under control for now, hopefully the training of everyone will get into full swing rapidly and more action can be had.

yea i love bleach anime and manga- awesome characters, story, weapons lol

has anyone seen bleach episode 127 ? hopefully orihime gets stronger so that she can help fight arrancar too!



lol
Seiji
I see Orihime as getting more annoying. She sort of reminds me of Sakura in a way. No matter what though I know they are going to make her a big factor in the upcoming battle. Nice to see Chad getting a lot stronger too, who knows what kind of hidden power he has. Ishida will also be coming back into the story soon Very Happy which is the best thing ever. I think he owns every other character in Bleach Razz

If you read the manga, Orihime does get stronger. Just not physically. At least, not yet.

I've tried many times, but unfortunately - to watch Bleach. I have 100 episodes, but I'm stuck at episode 22 - it's just too boring to me.

Grimmjow is rather savage. The fact that he's so damn good, and that he hasn't even released his hollow form is pretty damn scary. How much more powerful can this guy get!?

Not only that, but I loved seeing Urahara finally toss his hat (heh) into the ring, and start fighting with everyone else. He's too damn good to have on the sidelines.

I've been catching up on Bleach lately. The last episoide was 144 or 143?

Finally Ichigo is back in action after the whole time without him. Laughing
dez_trukshun
The last one was 146, and it was kind of ok. Not so much fighting, more of fun. I guess those are some good parts too. I just cant wait till there is a showdown between Ichigo and Grimmjow or Ulluqiuora. Ulluqiuora is so cool. He looks all sad and depressed, but he is so cold hearted and strong. I think he is no. 4 of the Espada, right? I wonder who is stronger than him. He is my favorite of the Espada. Can't wait for thier fight.
votd
Just LOL. The only thing I'm catching up in Bleach is the newest Opening and Ending songs. Well I'm pretty annoyed, because every time I'm watching Bleach, I just forget to - for example - turn off my communicator, or cell phone. And so it begins - when I'm watching (for god sake) episode 1. for seventh or nineth time and someone calls to me or writes to me I'm turning off Bleach and stopping watching it. Duh, I must turn off EVERYTHING one day or stop writing to my friends and watch Bleach FINALLY xD.

Episoide 147 of Bleach came out a couple days ago, and the sub was released.

Well, I thought that this episoide was good, with more fighting and intense moments. I hate when they cut it off at the part where everything become intensive. And it's kind of getting old now, that just when one of the good guys, is about to be killed, someone else just appears out of nowhere 'just in time', and saves them.

Though 147 was good, with all those hollows and Menos Grande appearing. And I'm also wondering who the shimigami guy with the hollow mask is. It makes me want to go and read the manga to see what happens, but I'll just wait. Wink

Yeah, that whole underground Menos Forest thing was a filler. It is a shame that a character like Ashido still cannot possess the bankai or even show his shikai. Obviously if he possessed a bankai, it would affect the true storyline so that cannot happen; however, I think he should have at least revealed his shikai.

Yea that was a disappointment, they did make him out to seem really powerful. Hell they could have let him have a bankai, and then let him die in some heroic way shortly later. (it's not like they haven't added things in the anime that wasn't in the manga before [looks at the 3 puppets])

I'm also assuming that Nell (or whatever the lil arrancar girl's name is) and her two "brothers" are also filler characters?
rightclickscott
I'll be pissed if they don't bring Ashido back. They could have done much more with him. Perhaps he had a shikai and bankai, but he didn't show them because it would draw too much power towards him, letting the Adjuches onto his location. A possible future captain? That's the kind of character they needed.

Oh, and I want my subbed episode 151, goddammit.

Ashido could make one of the surprise appearances that Ichigo always make when someone is in trouble. From watching 151 it looks like Nel has some type of secret skill. It just keeps looking like Ichigo is getting weaker and weaker.

Heh, believe if or not Nell and her Hollow buddies are definitely NOT filler characters. In fact they all have a role later on in the anime. She and her buddies are very much comedy relief characters with story-proceeding potential.

Maybe you are talking about dubbed episodes. The current episode in Japanese is episode 153, released yesterday (GMT+10). The sub should be out today (again GMT+10 here). But in the manga, it shows Chad fighting, but in the anime in doesn't.

I just finished watching episode 52-53 which is the last episode available at the moment and I have this to say about the series. It is simply amazing. It has in my opinion very little flaws. If you haven't seen or want to see it there are many sites that have it for direct download. You can also find it on torrent sites or any P2P.

Here is a quick summary:
Ichigo Kurosaki is a 15-year old boy with an angry face. He also has the ability to see ghosts. This brings him trouble when one day, he meets a Death God named Rukia Kuchiki, one who destroys Hollows, destructive beings created from dead people who are left on Earth. In an incident with a Hollow, Rukia transfers her energy to Ichigo, to create him into a Death God. As mysterious new characters arise, Ichigo must learn that the Hollows aren't his only enemy, and to destroy them, he must learn the way of a Death God.
Kurosaki Ichigo is not a regular 15 year old, because he has always had the ability to see spirits and ghosts. One day, a female Shinigami (God of Death) named Kuchiki Rukia appears before him, hunting for an evil spirit. But during the confrontation, the Shinigami's powers are transfered to Ichigo. Thus begins the adventures of Ichigo and Rukia and their mission to herd Hollows (fallen spirits) as well as confronting other spiritual beings.

Wait, what? The guy Ichigo was fighting was a former espada, not Nel. I mean, that's huge claim to make. After all, she is just a kid. After all, she doesn't even have a weapon.

EDIT [SPOILER WARNING]: Huh, I just looked it up, and it turns out you were right. The thing is, though, that she had reverted to a child form after all of their masks were ripped off. It's rather interesting, because looking at all of their abilities, it looks like they aren't completely useless after all. I still couldn't find more information on Nel, but I looked at Pesche and Dondo's moves, and they may actually be able to fight competantly. Although, Pesche's "Ultima" sword kinda freaks me out...

Um, they have the same elements because a lot of action anime are the same. I mean protecting people is an honorable quality. Not only that, but of course the characters have to "suck" at first, so they can get better and progress. Otherwise the anime series would only go for a good 10 episodes.

Like this: He was there, he went here, he took care of business, he left.

Otherwise, like this: He was weak, he sucked, he learned, he got better, he went there, he got even more better, he learned even more, he went here, he lost again, he trained some more, he went back, he took care of business, he left.

Now which one seems more detailed... more interesting... worth watching?

I have seen the first episodes just to hear, but now not to attend for more!

Yes, Bleach is definitely addictive. I've finally watched those first 20 episodes from AnimeHQ (by the way, they are amazing quality rips! Check them out!) and I'm waiting for more DVDRips. I had my RMVB low-size copies, but they are out of question now!

As for a shounen anime, Bleach is drawn very nice. Look at One Piece. I've watched some first episodes lately and they look very very very odd. I don't want to start a fight with One Piece fans, but art-wise, this anime is horrible. But you can bear with it. And as for Bleach, it's amazing! First episodes are just too good for a shounen. There are TV Series with normal lenght out there drawn worse than that!

Probably, but I'm guessing that Ichigo's going to use his hollow powers instead, since Amagai's Bakkoutou neutralizes shinigami powers, not necessarily hollow powers too. Though I'd say without a bankai it'll be a tough battle for sure, especially against someone as powerful as Amagai. Although the other captains (Toushirou, Kira, Soi-Fon and What's-His-Face-You-Know-The-Laid-Back-Guy-With-The-Hat) know where they are so they'll probably be arriving soon.

I've watched the last episode now and it's a really cool anime, no words to the bankai and hollow ichigo
kon it's so funny

My favorite bankai was houzokimaru from ikaku

Really massive Twisted Evil

Bleach has finally returned to the main storyline. Although the newest episode was filled with mostly a recap...at least were back on track.
pjkuse
Yup. Its mostly recap. If not I would have forgotten about it.
Just found out that Nel is an Espada. Really wish to see more fight scenes. Smile
ServalM
meh, I think the latest episodes of the new storyline were pretty good, especially the part of Nel Very Happy
ok it's true that they could've gone a bit faster but we shouldn't complain about it, the fillers aren't that bad like the ones of naruto for example
pjkuse
I didn't watch Naruto. But yep, I think the filler is not bad at all.
Does anyone know why dattebayo produces 2 version of bleach 193?

aren't sure either, but do know that recently they're doing more than just this weird thing. Somethings like wrong with them, anyhow, I saw the V2 and must say that it was good quality, so maybe the first version was just a fast work and they made a second for the people with more patience Cool Other than that idea I haven't.

Yours forever,
Fire Boar
The v2 of the latest episode was done because the ending credits in v1 were out of sync slightly. Other than that, it's exactly the same as v1. If you've already got v1, don't download v2.

... man, I can't wait until [SPOILERS]Captain Mayuri Kurotsuchi turns up to kick the crap out of Szayel Aporro. His creepy powers annoy me so much.[/SPOILERS]
ServalM
lolz, why the hell make a second version for that....?
Totally agree with you for the spoiler you added there, it's about time they stop wanking and start kicking some ass...
rightclickscott
Man, Szayel Aporro is the absolute worst espada ever. Scratch that, make that the worst villian ever. He's not fighting. He's just standing there like a dick, using stupid moves. Every episode he's in really annoys the crap out of me. Will he please actually start fighting soon?

I'm an Ishida fan but it has to be the worst fight ever. I skip over it every time, and they like to add those little comedies and its not funny at all. I just wish they would end it, and they move on to someone else.
Fire Boar
Actually I think Szayel never actually gets his hands dirty in a fight at all. [SPOILERS]In fact, he never fights back against Kurotsuchi, he just stands there, recovers briefly and then is stuck in a million or so years of almost stasis before finally dying. Well, the punishment befits the sin, and I can't really think of any sort of death more befitting a complete dick like Szayel Aporro.[/SPOILERS]

What I don't get is why Ishida doesn't actually fight back much. Or run away from that wing. Same goes for Renji. Mind you, in the latest episode (or the Manga where it happens, depending on which you're further on in) who honestly was expecting Pesche and Dondochakka to be not completely useless?
Seiji
I actually though Pesche and Dondochakka were going to surprise us. Like maybe even as strong as Nnoitra's sidekick. Series is just getting kind of lame, I'm ready for them to just move on past these fights. And if Ichigo can't even beat Nnoitra, how in the world is he going to far with the other Espada. Its not like he has a Saiyan effect, when he gets stronger after he has healed.

Maybe people come in for the rescue? who knows, nel is also fighting now, so maybe Ichigo will do something else in the meanwhile.
also though that maybe dondochakka and the other guy would start to be more serious, but in the end they just do some stupid comedy moves and try to win with that! please somebody kill them...
dude_xyx
Who knows maybe Pesche and Dondochakka have some kind of hollow powers too which haven't shown yet.

They do, actually. In fact, they have quite an assortment of great moves. In the next episode, they'll probably show them off and kill Aporro.

Kill Aporro? Nah, it's not going to happen. Pesche and Dondochakka are still mere fraccion, while Szayel, annoyingly, is an espada. An espada who is incredibly tough to kill.
ServalM
Kenpachiiiiiii Cool
finally, somebodies shown up with some true skills!!
I suddenly have the feeling that it's about to get much better :d
Seiji
Its wierd how the captains seem to be 10x stronger. I thought Ichigo had surpassed all of them cause he had defeated majority of them before he was even able to do the bankai. I guess in *secret* the captains got much better.
bogger
it's probably just that they didn't want to kill ichigo, seeing as he's not arrancar?

I'm enjoying the return of proper fighting, not enjoying the lack of blood though, stupid kiddy television laws
pjkuse
Things are getting better yeah!!
Everyone is coming to help!
Seiji
Its much better than the fillers we have. I'm enjoying Bleach more and more every episode. Even though I think the arrancar are a lot stronger than we think. It'd be shocking if they defeat them that easily. Rukia's captain is pretty much destroying his competition.
torboxz
Haven't you try reading bleach manga? The chapters are more advance than the anime's. I was like you guys, waiting for the eps weeks in and weeks out, and then I found
Code:
www.onemanga.com
and I feel enlightened. Sure it's cool to watch their moves and what sort, shikai or bankai or kido, but the main story progressed too slow and with those annoying (for me) fillers, it's not for an impatient person like me. Anyway, have a go one the website, who knows, you might see the light at the end of the tunnel. Laughing
pjkuse
Thanks... But you have to read it online. I would prefer to be able to download it and read it offline. =)
Fire Boar
If you have a WAMP server, try this script on for size. It's not great, but it can download any Bleach manga chapter to your machine. Note that it gets out of sync after the Turn Back the Pendulum arc.

Code:
<?php
$chapter = $_GET['chapter'];
if (!$chapter) die('Use: ?chapter=000');
$static = "http://manga.bleachexile.com";
$get = "/bleach-chapter-".$chapter.".html";
$dir = "chapters/".$chapter."/";

if (!mkdir($dir)) die('dir make failed');

do
{
   $handle = file_get_contents($static.$get);
   $i++;
   $posimg = strpos($handle, "<img src=\"http://static.bleachexile.com/manga/bleach/") + 10;
   $posimgend = strpos($handle, "\"", $posimg);
   $file = str_replace(' ', '%20', substr($handle, $posimg, $posimgend - $posimg));
   echo $file."<br />\n";
   if (!copy($file, $dir.((strlen($i) < 2) ? "0" : "").$i.".jpg"))
   {
      echo "File copy failed!";
      die();
   }
   $posnext = strpos($handle, "<a href=\"/bleach") + 9;
   $posnextend = strpos($handle, "\"", $posnext);
   $get = substr($handle, $posnext, $posnextend - $posnext);
} while ($posnext !== false && $i < 100);
if ($i >= 100)
{
   echo "Error: too many pages, safety cut-out.";
}
?>


Save that PHP script somewhere on your local web server, then make a folder in the same directory called "chapters" and give it write permissions. To evoke:

http://localhost/bleach.php?chapter=001

That's assuming you saved it as bleach.php in your root web directory and want to get chapter 1.

NOTE: An error pops up after it's finished downloading, just ignore it. Also, it won't work if the folder already exists, so if downloading a chapter fails for whatever reason, you have to delete the existing folder before you start downloading.
pjkuse
Thanks very much Fire Boar. But sorry I don't have any server. If I have the chance I will try your code.
Seiji
Yeah, the manga is ahead, but the only manga, I have gotten into was R2. I'll just keep waiting for every episode.
torboxz
Why would you like to read it offline? Isn't it great that you don't have to download anything and still can read the manga. It's true that while you're reading, all those pesky ads gets your attention but those ads help to keep the manga reading free.
One thing that onemanga among the best is that if you happen to find any intrusive ads like blinking madly or ads that creates pop ups, contact them and they'll gladly get rid of them. Heck, even they ask us readers to hunt for it, sure ads help to pay the bills but when the ads get your attention off their manga, it's bad.

p/s: I'm not in any way had any connection with onemanga.com. I'm just their regular fan.
pjkuse
hi torbox,

Well, I don't have 24 hours internet connection. So I would prefer to download it and read it in my own time. Without the need to login to the net everytime I want to read the manga. Then spent time waiting for it to load. My internet connection is slow....

btw I'm not reading it... I just prefer things to be offline. Cheers!!
Seiji
Episode 199 is out, really good episode only because we get past one stupid fight, sorry if I spoiled anything for anyone. I'm wondering what happens after they get past this batch and how much powerful are the other Espadas.
pjkuse
Yea.. I agree. But this episode seems so short. Just a poison and the espada dies. Sorry about the spoiler guys...
Seiji
Episodes seem shorter because they do all those flashbacks at the beginning of every episode now. Its kind of stupid that they do it. Of course there stalling, to take up time in each episode.

Honestly, that is the reason why I read manga. The time taken for the flashback is ridiculously annoying. Why did they do that? I'm confused.

Hi,

Are you saying that you watch Bleach on TV? Wow! I wish I had one. Oh ya, mine did have but it then stopped right after Ichigo arrive in Sereitei and try to save Rukia. I don't know why the stop airing the episodes. That's how I know about Bleach. Then I start to download the episodes. After a while, I got frustrated with the flashbacks and stop downloading. I continue the series by reading its manga until now.

By the way, you don't have to log on every time you want to read. The chapter is updated weekly, every Thursday to be precise. Along with naruto and one piece. Find the last episode that you watch in the list of the manga chapters and continue from there. Give it a try. I'm glad I did it. Very Happy
pjkuse
Thanks for the suggestion torbox. Maybe I'll give it a try.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

So... anyone disappointed with Neliel's voice? I would think her grown-up voice would sound more like Rukia's or Yorouchi's... instead it's a high-pitched Orihime-like voice.

What's with clingy, big eyed, big breasted, annoyingly high-pitched girls and Ichigo? Seriously.
pjkuse
It is not what I expected. But the voice is still the same. I thought it would be an adult voice.

Anyway I'm disappointed with the last 2 episodes. Fillers about football. Sad

They're getting to a hell of a lot of action now in the anime. Looks like it's going to be really good for a while unless they do another stupid side story in between it all again. Hoping they don't.

I just started watching Bleach and its *Bleaching* amazing.
I'm still on the 4th episode, and loving it.

I saw episode 182 more than a year back, and liked it, but only got a chance to download it now.

And its awesome!!!!!! Laughing

oooh i wonder what no1's wolves do Very Happy

First time, I watch Bleach as the animation, and I find out more in comic book. I figure out that the story of Bleach in animation and comic book are not the same. So now, i only read from the comic book, I think it's more interesting.
amperx
bleach manga story is progressing nicely now, i cant wait for the intense aizen vs vaizard/gotei13 action, and ichigos fight with yami, Very Happy Very Happy
detsucks
Haven't been watching/reading this for a while!

Seem's like it's getting good reading what you guys are saying haha.

Guess i should catch up and start reading and watching again.

Very likely Hueco Mundo helped a lot because that is where hollows are stronger, so it would make Ichigo's hollow form stronger. Of course we all know that Smile At least those who watch it! lol

well in HM, ichigo really boosted his power level up way up, but it was just not enought, so KT decided to power up him again, just to match him with aizens level, sadly it was just too easy for him to gain more power Sad

Do you think that was Ichigo who stabbed Stark from back? (Talking about the anime not manga xD)

Beach Manga having a two week holiday. I wonder what will be there next story. They didn't show Aizens bankai ( or did I miss it ? ).

as far as i know aizen's bankai is still unknown

but i'd like to see it !!! Twisted Evil
amperx
as far as the manga have gone it seems aizen still hasnt shown his bankai Sad i would've wanted to see it, and the ther captains bankai, but kubo is such a tease and doesnt show them in major battles lol
dude_xyx
There are several Bankai we haven't seen yet. Aizens Bankai, Kempachis Bankai, Yoruichis Bankai, Urahara Bankai etc. New Bleach Manga series has started so I hope we are going to see some new action.

I would be really scared they'd butcher the voices though. Ichigo has a really good Japanese voice, Rukia too, and I can't picture a new English one.

I think this is erroneous. It HAS been reported that Viz already has this (which would be far more likely than FUNI.) Also, I don't know where that Cartoon Network information comes from. There WAS an interview with the VP for acquisitions & co-productions over at Newsarama, in which she was quoted as saying:
Quote:
Bleach is great. The same people who do Naruto and Inu Yasha make it. It’s more of an Adult Swim show. It’s a bit more complex and slower, and it builds from one episode to the next.

This is NOT a confirmation that CN or AS have this property, just that it would probably go to AS if they DID. In fact right before this she was asked directly about any new anime properties coming, and her answer was essentially a 'no comment' and that Naruto is still the hottest thing out there.

Don't get me wrong, I'm SURE Bleach will make it out here soon, and I'm sure it'll be aired on TV (although probably NOT CN.) I just think this rampant rumour-mongering is ridiculous.



i agree

I just finished watching episode 52-53 which is the last episode available at the moment and I have this to say about the series. It is simply amazing. It has in my opinion very little flaws. If you haven't seen or want to see it there are many sites that have it for direct download. You can also find it on torrent sites or any P2P.

Here is a quick summary:
Ichigo Kurosaki is a 15-year old boy with an angry face. He also has the ability to see ghosts. This brings him trouble when one day, he meets a Death God named Rukia Kuchiki, one who destroys Hollows, destructive beings created from dead people who are left on Earth. In an incident with a Hollow, Rukia transfers her energy to Ichigo, to create him into a Death God. As mysterious new characters arise, Ichigo must learn that the Hollows aren't his only enemy, and to destroy them, he must learn the way of a Death God.
Kurosaki Ichigo is not a regular 15 year old, because he has always had the ability to see spirits and ghosts. One day, a female Shinigami (God of Death) named Kuchiki Rukia appears before him, hunting for an evil spirit. But during the confrontation, the Shinigami's powers are transfered to Ichigo. Thus begins the adventures of Ichigo and Rukia and their mission to herd Hollows (fallen spirits) as well as confronting other spiritual beings.


I have not watched bleach yet, and i am going to wait until it ends. then i will have like 500+ episodes to watch and be set for many months.

Is anyone still reading the Bleach manga. It's has just recently gone into the final arc. I thought the series could go on longer but it looks like it will be all done after this last arc. I wonder if we'll finally find out all about Ichigo's father and all that or if they will leave it a mystery. I really hope they tie things up well, I've read too many mangas where the end just was just too rushed and there were too many questions left unanswered.
ato784
I am looking forward to watching this show, however I am going to wait until it is done to watch it, so... I may have to wait a while yet to watch it.
Iceaxe0410
You might have to wait awhile if you wait for it to finish. From what it seems, it will be awhile if at all if they continue the anime after the fullbring arc. The last (final) episode was back in March of this year. Not sure how long the final arc will last. I hope it lasts quite a long time, maybe several years. There are so many things that can be done with the story. I'm interested to see how it ends.

I am kind of disappointed they haven't continued the anime beyond the fullbring arc. There's still hope it will start up again. Very Happy
dude_xyx
Seems These days in Bleach Manga two captains killing each other. Unohana and Kenpachi. Anyone know how this thing had started ? Missed couple of chapters and too lazy to read those now. xD
Iceaxe0410
Some Spoilers:
.

Yeah, basically Unohana discovered Kenpachi a long time ago when Kenpachi was still a kid. Both of them were looking for someone worthy to challenge their fighting skills. They fought and realized that the other was the person they were looking for. The problem was Kenpachi psychologically held himself back limiting his full potential ever since their fight because he wanted to find someone stronger than him. He lost due to this mental block and Unohana knows this. Ever since that, he psychologically prevented himself from advancing further which is another reason why he lost to Ichigo in their first encounter. Given how the soul society is in dire straits, they need him to remove that mental roadblock. In order to do this Unohana decided to fight Kenpachi to the death. So, basically she heals him and kills him over and over until he rediscovers his fighting instinct.
the_emissary
i thought that the sword is given to shinigami by that afro guy, how about the arrancar?
Iceaxe0410
The manga is actually getting pretty good. I just wish they continued the anime. It's so much different seeing live animation than frames in a manga. Some interesting twists to the story. It keeps me interested every week. Can't wait to see how it finally wraps up. Things are getting crazy.
