Bleach: Story Arch 1 (Anime & Manga)

Written by: Tite Kubo
Published by: Shueisha

Directed by: Noriyuki Abe
Written by: Masashi Sogo
Music by: Shirō Sagisu
Studio: Studio Pierrot

The Bleach series really interested me, at first. I started watching the show a while back, and I got into the 2nd or 3rd story arch, but I just couldn't take it anymore. Frankly, the story line is very good, but there are way too many filler episodes. I personally loved the first story arch, and I recommend watching it. I also later read the whole first arch again, and I loved it just as much. It doesn't matter if you read it or if you watch it, but the first story arch is very good.

Plot: (9/10)
The story revolves around a teenager named Ichigo Kurosaki, who happens to have a high level of spiritual power. What does this mean? It basically just means that he has good connections with spirits, and can even see most of them. He happens to see a shinigami, or death god, named Rukia. Long story short, he is put in a situation that forces him to become a shinigami himself in order to protect his family. The 1st arch is all about his crazy adventure in the shinigami world trying to rescue someone dear to him.

Characters: (9/10)

Ichigo Kurosaki: Cool, chill. He is on the sarcastic side, but very serious. He can be a bit goofy at times, though. Basically, don't mess with him.

Chad: Kind, gentle hearted. He is very strong, but will not use his strength for anything that might harm another.

Orihime - Very bubbly, kind. She is the kind of person that could just become friends with you in an instant.

Uryu - Smart, dangerous, confident. He is a bit cocky, but he is also a genius and a warrior.

Rukia: Stubborn, but kind. She is very strong willed and will try to obey the rules.

Animation: (8/10)
I am not really the best person to ask about this. I personally do not care about the animation in an anime. I thought this one was fine, but that I've seen better ones before. There is nothing wrong with it though and I hope that you don't mind it either. One good thing is that the fight scenes look very cool. You get more out of the fight scenes in the anime than you do in the manga.
