Bleach is one of the popular Manga and anime franchise in Japan and abroad. It is one of the best Shonen manga Series and it’s been completed with 686 chapter of manga. Bleach Manga started it’s journey on August 20th, 2001 and it’s anime first aired on October 5th,2004. It has 366 Episodes, 4 Movies and 2 OVAs. Studio Pierrot animated the anime and there are multiple producers over the year for the anime including TV Tokyo, Dentsu, Aniplex etc.
Though Bleach manga concluded, it’s anime counter part is still unfinished. After the episode 366 which aired on March 27th, 2012 they haven’t aired any more episode. At that time their wasn’t sufficient materials to continue the anime but now it does . The whole Quicy ark remained to be animated.
Bleach tells us the story of Ichigo Kurosaki who is a 15 years old high school boy with a supernatural power in Karakura Town. He can see ghosts of dead people. One day while he was in his room, he saw a girl with black robe came into his room through the window like it was nothing. When she confronted her, she tells him that she is a soul reaper and her name is Rukia Kuchiki.
While talking with her, he heard the scream of his sister. When he goes there he saw something is attacking his family. Rukia calls it a Hollow. To save his family he tried to fight but he couldn’t. Rukia tried to protect Ichigo but in the process she got hurt. So, she transfers her soul reaper power to Ichigo to save him and the power to save his family . With her power, he becomes a substitute soul reaper and killed the Hollow. After that, their real adventure begins because Rukia can’t regain her power back. So it’s on the shoulder of Ichigo to eliminate Hollow and send the soul of deceased people to the soul society.
Bleach recently released it first live action movie but I don’t think it did well in Japanese box office. Because of that it will be hard to get another season of the anime. But Bleach anime is famous worldwide that’s why there is still chance. I hope Bleach can get a new season real soon.
If someone want to start watching Bleach right-now, I think they should start fast. The anime is really good and the plot is superb. It is the one of the best longest running anime you will ever find.
