Bleach the anime

Well first episode has been fansubbed, downloaded and just watched it then.

Hmm well you can't make much of a judgement from only being able to see the first episode but I liked what I saw, I like Kubotite's art ala Zombie Powder (I want an ending sigh) and the Bleach manga. Ichigo was kicking at the end of the episode when he absorbed the Death God's powers and took out that hollow.

I look foward to episode 2, and just a question how many episodes have they scheduled for the series?

I liked the first episode, despite the changes they made, minor...but annoying...good nonetheless

No one knows, seeing that the anime is still going, and currently on volume 13, I'd say it'd go for 100+ episodes. If you do the math, 13 volumes worth of manga converts to approximately 100-104 episodes, assuming that each chapter is one episode (took that into consideration and made an estimate) and each volume is 8 chapters long.

on simpler terms, it IS a popular shonen jump manga, so i'd say it'd be long.

The first episode was fairly good. The animation was solid, with even a bit of experimentation (i.e. in the color and usage of lighting) to make it feel different from all the other shounen anime out there. The opening and ending themes are good. The opening especially is kick-ass. The ending felt a bit out-of-place, but it's a very pretty song.

What I really like from the manga are the characters, though. They're the backbone of the show and take it from being a typical high-school-boy-becomes-badass-fighter series. So for the anime, I was glad at their choices of seiyuu. Ichigo was given the perfect voice, just like I'd imagine it from reading the manga. They seemed to do a good job acting out the first episode.

I'm looking forward to the second episode.

Hmm if they do decide to make it a very long series .., sigh I hope I can be bothered to keep on following it and not lose interest.

And yes the opening theme is kick ass, that song by Orange Range is real catchy .. "G O O D Y" Is it from an album or a single of theirs, or have they not released it yet?

Yeah, I definately digged the first episode. The opening had a "funky" 70's vibe going into it. If the anime follows closely to the manga, then this sure to be the next "Naruto" of anime. I've read all the way up to chapter 150 of the manga and I must say that I am pleased with the route it is going. But, I don't know how long I am going to stick with the anime as I get my Bleach fix every Friday here in Japan.

Yes the series is just called Bleach, it's about a 15 year old boy called Ichigo (the guy in my avatar) who can see dead spirits. He meets a girl who is a shinigami/god of death who hunts evil spirits called Hollows .. blah blah this and that happen resulting in the god of death's powers being transferred to Ichigo.

And here are some sites:

A girl?I'm pretty sure the Shinigami is a guy.

So far the story holds together,but I hope they'll do more than just fight a bunch of random Hollow every episode.

PS:I don't know much of japanese mythology,however from what I've seen of Shinigamis,it seems you can become one if you suicide.Or is it a coincidence that most Shinigamis have commited suicide in their previous life (ex:Takuto from Full Moon wo Sagashite)

Hmmm, from the episode 2 preview I saw in the end of ep 1, the death god who gave ichigo his power is a girl, or it's a guy who loves wearing a girl's school uniform.

Yes, it is a girl named Rukia. She's also wearing dresses in the opening sequence, so if you don't believe me, rewatch it.

It's actually called "Asterisk," or in Japanese "*~アスタリスク~." I don't think it's on an album. I haven't been able to find much on it on the internet, and you betcha I've been looking.

The manga is licensed right now. Got licensed over a little while ago. It's up to Vol. 13 here in Japan. I just read chapter 152 in Weekley Jump here in Japan. Ichigo has become a "beast". Kicking ass and taking no prisoners. It's going to be tough to watch the anime for me, but for those just tuning in, stay in for the long haul, you'll definately like what you'll see later.

P.S. If you want the translated manga, PM me.

Two volumes are out in the US, with a third coming up sometime really soon. Viz's website isn't that helpful, so don't bother looking for info on upcoming volumes there. They do have limited info on the two volumes that are out.
