Just watched the first episode and am not especially excited about it. :| There's neither cuteness nor coolness factor, the artwork isn't the best, and the music is boring. I really hate it when they put too much English in a Japanese song.
In a manga, I don't usually mind terrible artwork too much, but I just can't bear the anime version cause it's too painful.

hmm i like the music it makes me think of rap but then again i like rap u prolly don't i've come to realize im the only one here that likes rap lol everyone else is a metal head. And i like the colour in the show for some reason, i think it's cool and i like the music the storyline is good (gets better) yep.
every site i go to tho to get the manga has chapters like 1-61 then it goes straight to 138 WHERE R THE ONES IN BETWEEN anyone know where i could get a hold of em?

ahehehe, I just saw ep 1 and 2 of Bleach, and am now starting to catch up w/ the manga... can't say i'm all bonkers for this title though, I found the story a cliche... BUT, i just couldn't resist rukia and ichigo, and the story sounds like it gets better later on.
rukia is just so cute.... especially that part were she draws bunnies when she explained some basics to ichigo, and that part with the juice and the straw :,3

The Anime is good, but the fansubs so far suck. I mean, cant they use the words Shinigami and Soul Cutter like everyone else who reads the scanlations ? translations like death god or Soul Reaper... O.O;; or Soul Slayer for the Soul Cutter.. >.<;;
yeah, i'd prefer they use "shinigami" but the literal translation of that is really "death god" (shinu is to die, kami is a god). personally i think soul reaper sounds cooler/makes more sense than soul cutter though. i think cookie cutter when i see soul cutter
so far i think bleach is doing a decent job of mixing serious and funny; i'm going to continue watching it. i really like the opening animation and colors too, very stylish.

for those of you who've watched the third episode, isn't the memory modifier thing awesome? there's a little chicken with a top hat sproinging out XD so much cooler than the MIB one.
ahhh, the last episode made me cry. i was totally expecting just a cliche "sayounara" or "dai suki da, nii-san!" but the "itterashai" and "itte kuru yo" was so SWEET. the sub translated it as "see you later" for both, which works, but itterashai is something a family member would say when someone else in the family is leaving for school or work, and ittekuruyo is a variation on the reply to that ("itte kimasu"), which would be like, "yeah, i'm going!" except he's not just leaving for work, he's leaving foreeever. cry, cry. it was sort of the opposite of the whole "tadaima" (i'm home) and "okaerinasai" (welcome home) scene which is used in like, one anime series out of six.
but yeah, my hopes are high for bleach

if you want subs that keep Shinigami as Shinigami you should check out IY4ever's subs. They kept it as Shinigami. They are not the fastest group, but so far has the best subs. It you are willing to wait.
and I hear Naisho & TW are very good too. I haven't seen this one, and they are only on ep 1.

Blah 153 Chapters is a lot to read...o.O (Actually 139 Chapters + Chap 153 but oh well) The manga is fantastic in my opinion and so far the anime has stay true to it. Plut it's being snappy in pacing. Can't wait for eppy 4.
