Bleach is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Noriaki "Tite" Kubo. Bleach follows the adventures of Ichigo Kurosaki after he obtains the powers of a Soul Reaper (死神) - a death personification similar to the Grim Reaper - from Rukia Kuchiki. His newfound powers force him to take on the duties of defending humans from evil spirits and guiding departed souls to the afterlife.

Bleach has been serialized in the Japanese manga anthology Weekly Shōnen Jump since August 2001, and has been collected into 46 tankōbon volumes as of August 2010.

Viz Media obtained foreign television and home video distribution rights to the Bleach anime on March 15, 2006. Cartoon Network began airing Bleach in the United States as part of its Adult Swim block on September 9, 2006. Viz Media has licensed the manga for English-language publication in the United States and Canada, and has released 32 bound volumes as of September 2010 as well as published chapters of Bleach in its Shonen Jump magazine since November 2007.

Volumes of the manga have sold over 61 million copies in Japan, and have reached the top of manga sales in the United States. The series received the Shogakukan Manga Award for the shōnen demographic in 2005, and is among the best-selling manga properties in both Japan and the United States.

Ichigo Kurosaki has always been able to see ghosts, but this ability doesn't change his life nearly as much as his close encounter with Rukia Kuchiki, a Shinigami and member of the mysterious Soul Society.

While fighting a Hollow, an evil spirit that preys on humans who display psychic energy, Rukia attempts to lend Ichigo some of her powers so that he can save his family; but much to her surprise, Ichigo absorbs every last drop of her energy.

Now a full-fledged Shinigami himself, Ichigo quickly learns that the world he inhabits is one full of dangerous spirits and, along with Rukia, it's Ichigo's job to protect the innocent from Hollows and help the spirits themselves find peace.

In 2005, Bleach was awarded the Shogakukan Manga Award in the shōnen category.

It is good manga.
I love it.
Naruto's fame is going down, and Bleach is getting more popularity along with FMA.
I have the first 7 pages of the first chapter, and no more! Frustrating. I've been trying to find a site that lets you leech Bleach, but I can't find any!!

Any recommendations?

BTW, I'm on campus, so I can't get P2P stuff (dammit... I hate Uni sometimes...). Direct Downloads would be wonderful.
I've started reading it... haven't read so much.... But it sounds interesting
Bleach is the best! XD The juicy stuff happens around volume 7 XD There are more characters XD Super hot xDD
The "Cat Girl" rockz. laugh.gif
All hail Kon, the true hero of the story.

It is cool manga. I can't wait for the anime to come out too. It will be something to watch after hagaren is over. My favorites are Hitsugaya and Hinomori! I hope they get a lot of screen time! laugh.gif to bad right now the story is back on Ichigo and Co. Darn them Main Characters! Go back to the side characters!
Hey, and has a ton of info and media for Bleach, including volumes 1-5 and part of 6 of the manga for direct download. smile.gif They also have a list to tons of other fan sites, check it out if you want. I'm just suggesting places to download the greatest manga ever.
Just bought the first manga tonight! Havent read any of it though.
Oh, wow, certainly sounds interesting. Can this manga be viewed anywhere online?
It's been licensed. I don't know if they have it in Canada.

This highly reminds me of Yuu Yuu Hakusho. blink.gif
even though it has been lisensed you can still find it online. Like Naruto. When they don't go fast enough for the fans, the fans will find a way....
137 chapters subbed so far. (I'm allowed to say that right?) The manga is pwnage...xD. So far it's 17 volumes, and 16 volumes have been subbed, I think so anyway. 'Cept you probably won't find it online.
with chapter 137 it seems to be in the middle of book 16. Chapter 153 raw is out. with the books it self, book 14 just came out in Japan. So yeah, the actually books are pretty behind, Translated books are so far behind it isn't funny and the scanlations are not so far behind.
i have up to volume 7, chapter 61 in scanlations but there's nothing after that on bleach7 =( i checked bleachworld but they're down right now for some reason. *pulls out hair*
Yeah, I just started watching the series [because hagaren ended dry.gif ] and I loved it! So I went looking for the manga online. I was able to download up to volume 7. Does anyone know where I can find anything after that? Preferably in English. Because my brother can't read Japanese. XD
You can download them on mirc.
There they have it till chapter 143.
The group who do this is "mangarain".
Chibi Viki
ahehehe, after seeing the anime, i couldn't help but take a peek at the manga... crap, now i'm hooked! XD

anyway, so far, only chapter 1-61 (vol. 1-7) and few stray chapters like chap 135 and 153) are available for download via http, the rest (chapters 62-153) are available to download via irc only (from manga rain).
dammit, i don't know how to download via irc... nor will my connection be fast enough to downlaod all those chapters. crap...
already have all chapters till 143 tongue.gif
it's really addicting
[feels like a f00 for asking...] what's 'irc' anyway? I've heard it alot. sorry. I'm such a n00b. tongue.gif
Chibi Viki
irc -- internet relay chat
and if you dont have irc you're screwed right?
there's instructions on on how to download stuff via mirc
chapter 150 sumtin for me. Its good stuff.
yay for nice friends with irc and cd burners! i've been unzipping files all day and i've read from 62 up to 129 now. on my cool list are ichigo-tachi, especially uryuu, zaraki, hitsugaya, ukitake, hanatarou, flowery captain and his hawkeye-ish vice captain, and byakuka. on the boo list are gin, the creepy mad scientist captain (somethingsomething mayuri), all the creepy minions, and byakuya. byakuya's so special he's on both lists.

so, does anyone else think zangetsu looks like aragorn?
thanks. debating about wether to sign up at bleach7 or not... XD I dunno. maybe later.. dry.gif

anyone wanna be nice and send me stuff? laugh.gif haha
hahah if you wanted me to i could burn you CDs of it and mail it, if you're that desperate wink.gif
Chibi Viki

lemme see... i've read chapter 1-61, skipped to chapter 32-33 (raw), then 35 scanlated, then skipped again to chater 151 (raw) and 153 scanlated. i've missed a lot... and i don't even know most of the characters anymore... >_<

Thanks so much for the link... but i am rather disturbed about this "revelation" about's tazmo...
Where did you get the scanlations beyond chapter 144, Chibi Viki? ohmy.gif
Chibi Viki
let's see...

raw came from and chapter 135 and 153 from
Ahh, many thanks, Viki. smile.gif
I'm at chapter 148 now...and I have to say, its becomming more and more like Naruto. They pretty much have 3 seperate storylines going, and its only focusing on one....the fighting. It's nice at first, but it gets annoying at the end. You pretty much have on whole chapter where a guy gets up from being badly wounded, remembers a few things, attacks someone, falls, and its over. Ya, thats one chaper, 19 pages.

Chibi Viki
hehe, i skip those... the story is very much predictable and some events are already cliche. Battles -- we already know the outcome even w/ our eyes closed. but i'm really interested w/ rukia and ichigo... and urahara just cracks me up :,3

oh, and the riza hawkeye-like character, nanao-chan, and her captain are totally hilarious too! glad to know they're on the good side later on ^^
Just wondering, I heard there is only 15 volumes of the manga is that true?
There are more than that. ANd its till going.
Good. haha I was like 15 volumes?! That is kind of short.
What the have translated scans above 149 I've been dying to read Bleach! I went and read all of it because I was bored! Now I must wait 0________0. Which reminds I only found out a couple of days ago that Manga-Rain is 16 chapters behind. I guess their taking a break I hope they translate more soon though or I'm going to faint. Luckily they do it for free 0_0.
Bleach ruleZ! I can't wait for Chapter 150 to be Scanned... sux i can't read japanese so i could jsut read the raws....

Zaraki Kenpachi is the Best!!!! biggrin.gif
