Just watched the episode. I remember reading the manga at Toriyamaworld and not being that impressed with the first chapter, and I didn't like the first half of this episode either - but by the end, it had gotten a lot more interesting, and I'll be following this series. I know how popular it got, so I'll be happy to give it a try.

Wasn't too thrilled by the OP - I love Orange Range's silly ED for Naruto, but this song just...was a bit dull. The animation was good, but the ideas for the animation were lacking. I agree - Ichigo looks and behaves a lot like Sawamura Seiji from Midori no Hibi. I guess the idea is that they're delinquent-types who can be redeemed!

The comedy in the first few scenes with the family didn't entertain me - but when Rukia appears, everything improves a lot. The story proper begins, and I'm interested in Ichigo's powers - and want to see why he can do what he can do.

And is Rukia's seiyuu really Pacifica from Scrapped Princess? Wow! I thought it was the girl who did Touya Akira from Hikaru no Go when I was listening!

Hayamaneko, I was pretty disappointed as well actually. As far as the drawings go I think Ichigo was done the poorest followed by rukia...and those are the only two we've seen...The other characters look good I think though, or at least it seems they will. I liked the OP actually.

On the whole the manga, especially the first two volumes were oooozing style. I don't think they did the best job possible capturing the super cool feel. I think the series will be definitely worth following, but I'm really prefering the manga so far.

UGH Ichigo's hair sux in the anime.

I'm pretty disappointed because my expectations were so high from the manga. Oh well, it's decent at least.

I predict that in another year or two, this will become as popular as Naruto is now, and fanboys everywhere will discuss in forums about which character is the strongest. Usernames like IchigoRules!!1!!1! will pop up, and there will be arguments about whether he got that name from Ichigo100% (probably an anime by then).

That's of course if this anime rendition survives that long.

It's actually Kyo from Fruits Basket, and Tasuki from Fushigi Yuugi.

Anyone ever seen a "gloomy bear"? That's exactly what it looks like. A cute teddy bear, with teeth and three-inch claws.

Bleach (Anime)

Now this is what I call anime. Talk about straight to the action!

From start to finish I was absoloutly sucked in, I could not take my eyes of the screen, simply awesome.
It had all the things I look for in a series, usually it takes me a couple of episodes to get me this exited but that wasn't the case here. NO WAY!
I'm already pining for the next episode.
And the music was also exelent. If you havn't seen this anime yet then hurry, go, believe me when I say you're mising out on something special, it's on the main page, go, go now I tell you!

I have a feeling this is going to be big.

Edit: Guess im a tad late.

The recent wave of BLEACH fansites... is that a good thing or should I also be worried?

Anyway, after watching Episode 01 FOUR times (downloaded YeyRAWs, SaiyaMan, Lunar and Keep-ANBU) I don't think the art is THAT bad anymore. The close ups are the best parts. :P

But since you saw the anime first, if you read the manga, you would be impressed by it instead of being disappointed by the anime.

Bears don't have manes or long tails.

The animation and voice-acting are better than I expected...I think I will keep watching.

He's not even that Minor spoiler, but Kon really doesn't have a permanent body...

I didn't think it was possible for Orikasa Fumiko to sound so male, yet at the same time come across as a girl >_< Had money on her using the same voice for Ligene [Natsuiro], so the raging and militant tomboy is pretty new and quite a suprise. Of Rukia's character design- bear in mind that in the manga her head is out of purportion to her body [it's pretty big]. In the animation it comes across as more normal despite being built washboard flat.

I take it that Kubotite is using the anime to correct all his mistakes done for the manga and have fun with his baby at the same time.

One more thing concerning the series lenght. The voice cast for every character introduced till book 14 has already been done. At 3 episodes per book [which is a conservative estimate], this show can easily run into 45+ episodes.

I think it will become a cool serie. I get the impression it smells abit like Yuyu Hakusho. First half was abit boring but when the god kid arives it becomes wicked.

Bleach is a series I began reading shortly after Toriyama World started translation.

Initially I was hooked, with the great animation, funny scenes, and interesting story. But after the first 3 volumes I became quite bored of the ongoing Shishigami v. hollow plotline. When Quincy Archer appeared, and the awakening of more allies to Ichigo's side, the action picked up again.. but then.. the manga was licensed by Viz.

I stopped reading for some many months, until I found Manga-Rain's IRC channel, and continued reading. (and am still).

In sum, not to give the plot away, the story early on I felt was boring, but once the details of Soul Society were further developed (and more characters introduced), things got much better.
