First Arc

Bleach is an anime about an orange haired fiery boy who has the ability to see ghosts. Due to the tragic death of his mother to a hollow the boy, Ichigo, has been seeing ghosts on the norm in every corner of the city from school to home and in his own room. One day a girl steps through his window into his room in a garb known as a death god's outfit of a low ranking soldier and he can see her. She shouldn't be seen by anyone because she is in her soul form which makes regular humans without a spirtual awareness unable to see her. The whole story kicks into a shift as Ichigo is thrown into a crossfire of heightning his spirtual powers which enable him to turn into a substitute death god since he borrowed half(all of) female death god's power, Rukia, and with her wounded she slips into a faux(gigai)(fake) human body to recuperate.

2nd Arc (Soul Society)
Rukia's taken back to the place she came from, Soul Society, to be executed for giving a share of her powers to a mere human. Ichigo is quite pissed with that idea but he was already half dead because Rukia's brother Byakuya just completely owned him in 2 shots. One of those shots shattered Ichigo's source of spirit power so he had to transform into a death god own his own means which won't be spoiled. Venturing into Soul Society with some friends (im not telling you who they are but its easy to figure out if you watch the episodes or read the manga) he has a mission to save Rukia, or was it because someone decided to kill Rukia?

3rd Arc (Back Home) - Manga Confliction
The 3rd arc is the currenct arc of the story, coming back home from soul society is where the anime and the manga split. The manga has the correct path but the anime decided to build more character into the individual friends of Ichigo. The current arc in the anime is about a new type of enemies known as the Bounto or just soul sucking vampires because these beings lived for far too long to be an average human and to sustain life they just suck souls from dead people. However, recently they revolted against their code of sucking dead people's soul and begin sucking souls out of live humans and that doesn't appease to Soul Society and the current heroes that just returned from it.

The manga's trend continues where the Soul Society arc left off only in all explosions, literally. Returning home for a day and boom, attacked by a rogue captain of a squad's creation monsters.






I suck at writing summaries.

I really wished they would've just taken a break in order for the plot to progress in the manga to have enough material for another season.  The current bounto arc is horribly slow-paced and just not that interesting compared to the Shinigami arc.  The only thing I'm looking forward to in this arc is Ichigo fighting the Bounto leader after he probably does some training or something, or them explaining Ichigo's transformations.

Too bad the fighting and dialogues aren't faster paced...there's such a lack of decent action animes out there...

You could rip off the summaries from Bleachportal or Wikipedia. =P

Actually I'm impressed with the filler arc writers. At least the fillers have some semblance of a storyline. Much better compared to say, Naruto fillers. =/

I'm looking forward to watching Ichinose getting his butt kicked.

At least bleach fillers are "complete". Naruto's are just 1-5 episodes and then start on a new filler with 1-5 episodes again.

Bleach takes its time to build up the story and then finish it properly.

the bleach fillers are quite entertaining, adds more character development with the officers from soul society and stuff gone wrong oh no.

Well, I guess these aren't technically fillers considering if you haven't read the manga, you wouldn't even be able to tell, and they are building up material that is related.  

IMO though, they should pack two episodes worth of stuff into each week to keep things fast paced =P.  I wonder if they'll pull a Naruto by dramatically increasing quality in certain episodes and then leveling off.

i dont think its really slow paced i mean its different compared to something trashy like dbz. 10 mins of talk. 20 mins of fight, oh no im losing, to be continued with some super special comeback. and then rinse and repeat

kinda like pokemon's 10 min story, 10 mins conflict (usually with teamrocket), 10 min of story until they get to a gym.

bleach's story pace is not that slow, i mean if there was too much action going on then the story would not exist and revolve around constant fighting from 1 episode to the next.

Your interpretation of a DBZ episode is a bit different to how I interpret it. I always thought it was 23 min preparing for super attack, 7 min doing the attack/counter-attack, and that's repeated for at least 10 episodes, hence the joke,

"Q: How many DBZ characters does it take to fix a light-bulb?
A: Any one of them will do, but it'll take 15 episodes"

Anyway, even though I haven't seen the filler episodes of Bleach yet, the way that it's made out to be makes it an interesting diversion to what's happening in the manga right now (hope there's more Chizuru/Orihime-> Tatsuki hitting Chizuru shenanigans in those fillers happy.gif).

Hehe, tama_chan's joke is nice.

Although the filler's not as great as the manga storyline, I still find it enjoyable, save for the fact Rukia n Renji came to the real world. That kinda spoiled the excitement when they return according to the manga.

It's decent. Now the moment the manga has enough for the anime to continue, Ichigo will be able to use his Bankai. Then after that, he'll get some drug to control his hollow power. He'll instagib all the Bountos and Ichinose (the shinigami), then we'll be on to Aizen.

And Aizen will poke his finger straight into Ichigo's chest and anime = over.

naruto fillers are one of the worst, i watched a bit and now i dont even bother to look at it, at times i will see if they have continued with the manga's storyline. Anyway my fav bleach character is Kenpachi and i like it when they are about to release their bankai and their reiatsu exploding through the area

OK!! Finger of death damage reduced from 900 to 100, so Ichigo feels nothing when touched by "the finger", lol.

Seriously, his skill is very gay. Freezing anything that he touches? Even Aizen will get pwned by this tactic......

Does anyone hate that Orihime girl, the one with the 5 pixies?  I for one can't stand her.  She reminds me of Sakura from Naruto, always with the bitching and helplessness and the crying.  Plus, her powers are pretty pathetic (she gets a killer pixie, but his strength is based on her willingness to kill, BUT SHE HAS NO WILLINGNESS TO KILL!?!?!).

And I hate Kon.  He's just there to annoy you.

But I agree, Bleach fillers > Naruto fillers.  Naruto fillers are just trash.

I'm sure there's more to him than that; he just uses that ability on the weaklings who can't counter it =P.

I like that one pixie guy though; the one that always hits her and says she's useless.

Because honesty is a virtue that should be encouraged.

According to ANN, looks like it's Tsubaki, and the voice actor is the same as Tousen.  Seems like they have quite a bit of people who play multiple characters which I guess isn't surprising since there are so many.

Looks like there's actually 6 pixies, too.  I don't remember myself.

She has kickass abilities in the manga though. Like a souped-up version of time lapse or something.

The voice actor for Ishida is the same one for Sasuke. I find that quite funny for some reason.
