Is it any good? I think I spoke with Nami about this before, but I totally forgot, because I'm old. xD So is it good? The only other animes I've seen were DBZ, DBGT, Naruto, and Naruto Shippuuden. I'm wondering how Bleach at least stacks up to Naruto in general. I'm starting off watching the Japanese episodes. I've already gotten my hands on episodes 1-50, and am currently obtaining episodes 51-100, and so on. I'm mainly giving Bleach a serious look at due to some fight clips I saw via YouTube. I thought it looked interesting and a bit fun, somewhat...DBZ-ish, if only a little.

I'm starting off with the Japanese anime, not the manga. I'll probably begin reading the manga itself once I've reached the last released anime episode, so please don't mention any spoilers here for me. :p

One of the reasons I'm also giving Bleach a look at, is because I'm actually a bit bored with Naruto. I've loved the series from the start, but, I'm just really impatient. Yes, I'm sure it's quite a lot of hard work, releasing 18 minute Shippuuden episodes, and 15-18 page manga chapters on a weekly basis. But I get bored easily, so I'm willing to check out Bleach. And it seems I have a ton to catch up on. :p Um, and also, Naruto is really beginning to get stale for me. =\

Well...mikey as most would say where Naruto is concerned you gotta start from the beginning to fully understand Bleach...so my advice to you would be to start reading the manga from the beginning n watching various episodes including the fillers on youtube or download them from another site. I think you will find similarities between bleach n naruto but not totally as Bleavh seems to be more adult oriented...and the action always seems to be fast paced with minimal flashbacks as well.

You gotta start watching from the beginning but it's worth it or reading but the anime is very good too and the GOOD GUYS ACTUALLY LOSE and the plot isn't as bad as in naruto give a whirl it's nice you will like it.

The main characters well overall main are shinigami who wield what they call soul slayers in english each having abilities shikai and bankai.

Shikai is the first release fo the sword which makes it appear differently then just a plain katana bankai is the highest stage of your soul slayer and is very hard to attain for many some have better bankai's then other while some shikai's such as the captains head shinigami and aizen biggest bad ass in the seires/villain their shikai are better then every bankai at least in my opinion because of their ability.

Captains- shikai looks like a giant phoenix fire very powerful

Aizen- shikai is like a genjutsu called Kyoko suigestu even though having a water name kyoko suigestu casts an unbreakable illusion much more poweful then genujutsu seen in naruti tsukuyomi included not frog genjutsu though lol.

As for these 2 guys bankia they haven't been revealed yet but most likley pwn all.

Give it a try the combat is very nice animations are always good to anf filers don't suck like naruto's.

Overall a good watch /read.

Watching the first episode as we speak. Seems interesting. Ichigo can see ghosts. And uh...

LMAO@the father/son rivalry Ichi has with his dad!

Death God seems kinda badass. I hope she's still in the series later on.

lol@Ichi's dad blaming his daughter's mean streak on puberty.

Nagato, this does seem somewhat adult. I have a feeling I'm really going to enjoy this. :)

Wait wait, so Death God has a sword with 2 levels: Shikai and Bankai? Hm.

xD I knew you'd stick up for Jiraiya's frog genjutsu!

Yeah well aizen's illusion can't kill people in a shot only make them think everything is real he even amanged to kill a whole council and fool everyone including the head shinigami that they are all well thanks to his soul slayers shikai.

As for power goes aizen is prety much the most powerful only one that poses a challenge is head shinigami otherwise known as Yamamoto.

Very nice so far. I'm really digging the Hollows in the story. Now it makes sense why Ichi is a Death God.

Nami, am I wierd for thinking Ichi > Naruto, in terms of coolness? xD /continues watching

Shows great one thing about this show is that they don't waste episodes staring at each other or having meaningless conversations,they do have flashbacks,however they aren't that long.The begining starts out a little slow but it gets so MUCH better.They probley shouldn't of told you the shikai bankai thing and left it as a surprise but oh well.One thing I should note about this show is that it has ALOT of action,like I said the begining starts out slow but after that it's like fight after fight after fight ect.

Oh and also I have 2 words for you Zaraki Kenpachi! You'll see what I mean soon enough.

Aw Nami I would have thought your earlier explainatory post might've spoiled it for Mikey ... :(

In any case I like Bleach because there aren't too many flashbacks and the action is an up-the-ante kind of fight as the series goes on the fights get more and more badass. The serious moments are really good too. I'll be interested to find out who is your favorite character when you're a good ways through it.

Fav action episodes (kinda guessing at the exact numbers): 29-32, 35-39, 41-44, 46-48, and 54-57. Oo can't forget episodes 110-125 (117-121 are especially badass in that set)
