Name: Bleach
Author: Kubo, Tite
Studio: Studio Pierrot
Genres: Action, Adventure, Comedy, Fantasy, School, Shounen, Supernatural
Status: Currently Ongoing at 446 Chapters

Synopsis: Ichigo Kurosaki is a teenager gifted with the ability to see spirits. His life is drastically changed by the sudden appearance of a Soul Reaper —one who governs the flow of souls between the human world and the afterlife—named Rukia Kuchiki, who arrives in search of a Hollow, a dangerous lost soul. When Rukia is severely wounded defending Ichigo from the Hollow, she attempts to transfer half of her reiatsu energy to Ichigo so that he can defeat the Hollow. However, Ichigo takes almost all of her energy, transforming into a Soul Reaper and allowing him to defeat the Hollow with ease. With her powers diminished, Rukia is left stranded in the human world until she can recover her strength. In the meantime, Ichigo must take over Rukia's role as a Soul Reaper, battling Hollows and guiding souls to the afterlife realm known as the Soul Society.

The manga is getting interesting!

With Ichigo's new power and all. I'm sure Hitsugya and the other captains will be meeting Ichigo soon as he gets to his full potential! Also the mystery about his father will be reveiled.

In the long run, Aizen might even come back, since he isnt dead.

Lol, that will have to wait. I'm tired of all these training sections, I wish he could just jump in an interesting battle or somethin.

Sadly don't see that happening. Kubo has the style of liking to "give away" free power / fights to his characters, lol. At lest from how I see it. But, alas, it'd be nice to keep the Slice of Life anime feel it's got going for itself.

Bleach is lame now. Why would Kubo just change the story like that.

I actually think it's kinda boring now. Fullbring just really isn't that interesting to me. I really like the hollows an hollow powers. I hope Ichigo gets his vizard powers back because that would make it much more interesting. Also, I really really want Nel to come back. She was my favorite. Also, there could be a chance that grimmjow comes back because the last we saw of him he was alive (although, he most likely died). I hope we learn more about Urahara because he is just a really interesting character to me. We will probably soon get to find out who the new captains of soul society are. They probably replaced them since there was a time lapse in the manga. And I agree with Ragen; I am excited to find out the mystery of Ichigo's dad. Just my thoughts on Bleach.

New Fullbring Ichigo looks nice. Combination of Hallow and Shiningami. The sword looks cool also. v.v.

On the twist...well...ofc he had to somehow introduce a new story, in which he lost all his powers, has to train to get new ones, a new main villain appears, old enemies come back too, old friends come back to help, he fights some fights wins and loses some, comes back stronger, defeats main villain, repeat X5 or 6? How many times has it been since the cycle has been repeating?

@Shikascoot: Here are my opinions on your words:

A. No duh, Fullbring is filler because he's gonna lose his Fullbringer Powers to begin with (Calling It). B. Indeed, love the hollow powers, we need to see more Good Hollows, like Neliel. C. Yeah, Grimmjow ain't dead. I've said it before plenty times on this forum and Soul Boards. He'll be back, and so will Harribel. She ain't dead either. She just fell to the ground and that's all we saw. Not to mention, the Priviaon Espada ain't dead either. We didn't see them die completely, we didn't see their bodies on the floor dead. So they ain't dead (Calling all this too). D. I agree, good man. Urahara's Entire Story MUST be known! E. I've been wondering about the new captains and Ichigo's dad too...

@Grymflame: I think, counting filler, like 5 times, maybe 6? But the formula still keeps people watching, apparently.

Still calling it: Fullbringer Saga is FILLER! Because Ichigo's Gonna Lose His Fullbringer Powers Too! (This ain't spoiler, it's my opinion). And if I'm right, what if Japan reads the filler, not just watch it? Then again, we Americans & Everyone Else HATES Filler with a burning passion, so they make it in the Anime, and never, in most cases, show it anywhere else but Japan. Just a theory, and if Ichigo loses his Fullbringer Powers, my theory is sound.

I thought Ginjo said that Ichigo would have both Shinigami AND fullbring powers. I might be mistaken..

now either it's one of the most complex story ever, and every thing will make sense when they tell us more information or this author just dose not give a fuck about plot holes.
this current arc feels weird almost like it a dream of some sort, or even filler manga like said above. i just hope they bring back the old characters.

also wtf @ siig above lol ubber creep chick

Now, I have full right to say this:

CALLED IT!

What have I been saying this whole entire time?! You all thought I was crazy, when I said that Ichigo wasn't going to keep his Fullbringer Powers and never get his Soul Reaper powers again. Well, according to the current Manga, he's got his Soul Reaper Powers back!

Anyone believe me now? (And please note, I've said countless times that Ichigo was going to get his Soul Reaper Powers back on different topics, and that he was going to lose his Fullbringer Powers, or find a way to fuse the two powers or something like that, making it something different all together.)

I thought he was going to keep both, personally. But I'm fine with him just having his Shinigami powers. They were cooler anyway. I'm definitely glad Rukia's back, and Ichigo's new Shinigami form looks pretty BA. Also, Ichigo needs to hurry up and go Bankai. I NEVER liked his massive sword. It just looks tacky.


Ships: Kakashi/Yūgao, Lucy/Natsu, Ichigo/Rukia, Luffy/Robin, Goku/Bulma (Some of em are weird, but I don't care, I'm odd like that )

RIP Shikaku and Inoichi My sympathies go out to Shikamaru and Ino!
RIP Neji! That's even worse :cry
