Photo by George Keating on

I have stopped trying to find a  favorite anime, because there are way too many to even think about. Then again Bleach has NEVER stopped being to the top. When I heard it was coming back, I was screaming YES!!!!!!  The only problem I have is, I have to wait until it is dub. I can’t read and watch the show at the same time.

Bleach (TV series)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This article is about Japanese anime television series. For other uses, see Bleach (disambiguation)

Bleach (stylized as BLEACH) is a Japanese anime television series based on Tite Kubo‘s original manga series of the same name. It was produced by Studio Pierrot and directed by Noriyuki Abe. The series aired on TV Tokyo from October 2004 to March 2012, spanning 366 episodes. The story follows the adventures of Ichigo Kurosaki after he obtains the powers of a Soul Reaper—a death personification similar to the Grim Reaper—from another Soul Reaper, Rukia Kuchiki. His newfound powers force him to take on the duties of defending humans from evil spirits and guiding departed souls to the afterlife. The anime adaptation includes original storylines not found in the manga with repeated appearances and stories containing these original characters.

Viz Media obtained foreign television and home video distribution rights to the Bleach anime in March 2006. Bleach was broadcast in the United States on Adult Swim from September 2006 to November 2014.

In March 2020, it was announced that the manga’s final story arc, “Thousand-Year Blood War”, would receive an anime television series adaptation, which is set to premiere in October 2022.  {}

My son has been trying to get me to read anime for years, but I find it hard to read right to left. He has told me the new story is so GOOD, but I need to read it. I will have to work on learning this new skill, but right now. I am happy to have restarted the series. Well, I started when Rukia was about to be executed, but he saved her from getting killed.

Rukia Kuchiki

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Rukia Kuchiki (Japanese: 朽木 ルキア, Hepburn: Kuchiki Rukia) is a fictional character in the anime and manga series Bleach created by Tite Kubo. In the series, Rukia is a Soul Reaper, (死神, Shinigami, literally ‘Death God’), in charge of slaying evil spirits known as Hollows. At the beginning, after a brief meeting with the protagonist of the series, Ichigo Kurosaki, who can see supernatural beings such as Soul Reapers, she is forced to give him her powers in order to fulfill her duties as a Soul Reaper. Rukia has appeared in several other pieces of Bleach media, including the four feature films in the series, the two original video animations and several video games.

Rukia was the first character of the series created by Kubo, her design being the one he decided to use for all the other Soul Reapers.[3] Reaction to her character is generally positive. Her differences from typical shōnen heroines is praised,[4] as is her interaction with other characters.[5] Additionally, she usually ranks second in Weekly Shōnen Jumps Bleach popularity polls, and is consistently the most popular female character in those polls.[6] Several pieces of merchandise have been released in Rukia’s likeness, including a plush doll and several figurines.[citation needed]  {}

I cannot wait to watch the new ‘Bleach,’ but until then I will enjoy the show once again. I want to say I started last Monday, skipped the part when Ichigo and the others returned to the real world, and picked it back up Season 6 chapter 110.

Ichigo Kurosaki

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ichigo Kurosaki (Japanese: 黒崎 一護, Hepburn: Kurosaki Ichigo) is a fictional character in the Bleach manga series and its adaptations created by Tite Kubo. He is the main protagonist of the series, who receives Soul Reaper powers after befriending Rukia Kuchiki, the Soul Reaper assigned to patrol around the fictional city of Karakura Town. These powers come at the cost of Rukia’s own, and as a result, Ichigo concedes to work as Rukia’s stand-in, fighting to protect people from evil spirits called Hollows and sending good spirits, wholes, to a dimension known as the Soul Society. In addition to the manga series, Ichigo appears in many other pieces of Bleach media, including the anime series, the four featured films, the two original video animations, rock musicals, several video games, light novels and the 2018 live-action film.

Kubo said that Ichigo was created to replace Rukia as the protagonist of the series because he felt she was not suited for the role. In the animated adaptations of Bleach, Ichigo is voiced by Masakazu Morita in Japanese.[1] In the English adaptations, he is voiced by Johnny Yong Bosch.[3] In the live-action film, he is played by Sota Fukushi.[5]

His character has been well received among both readers and reviewers. Ichigo is often featured in Weekly Shōnen Jump character popularity polls. He was consistently ranked as the most popular character in Bleach.[6] The 2007 Japanese Newtype magazine polls ranked Ichigo as one of the top 100 most-loved anime characters. Reviewers of the series have praised his personality, though some consider him to be a stereotypical anti-hero. Merchandise based on Ichigo’s likeness has been released, including toys, clothing and action figures. However, critics disliked his anticlimactic fights in the series’ latter half due to his lack of memorable scenes at these points.  {}

I am about to work on my dark mix stitch project and watched Bleach until  family game time. I was telling my son – it’s too bad Grimmjow is a bad guy, but he is cute.
