Bleach, Vol. 19

Cleaning up the afterlife – one spirit at a time!


R to L (Japanese Style). Cleaning up the afterlife – one spirit at a time!

Ichigo Kurosaki never asked for the ability to see ghosts, he was born with the gift. When his family is attacked by a Hollow (a malevolent lost soul) Ichigo becomes a Soul Reaper, dedicating his life to protecting the innocent and helping the tortured spirits themselves find peace. Find out why Tite Kubo's Bleach has become an international manga smash-hit!

The rebellion within the Soul Society grows as doubts spread about the death sentence of ex-Soul Reaper Rukia Kuchiki. Determined to save her, Rukia's childhood friend Renji vows to cut down the captain of his own squad, unaware of the terrifying fate that awaits him.

"Sorry, Byakuyo, ale nemám žádný strašidelný útoky jako ty. Zangetsu mě naučil jenom jeden útok, Getsuga Tenshou." - To mi chcete říct, že Zangetsu je bezdomovec, který umí jeden útok? :D Byakuya je fakt král kytiček. ...more

After a few weeks reading Bakuman and Death Note I am happily ensconced in a proper battle manga (which uses a nice measure of humour that Ohba-san and Obata-san could well copy, but now I am going off topic) Ichigo continues to battle Byakuya which could go either way, really. ...more
