Description - Bleach, Vol. 1 by Tite Kubo

Part-time student, full-time Soul Reaper, Ichigo is one of the chosen few guardians of the afterlife.

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!

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 Soul Reaper 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 Soul Reaper himself, Ichigo quickly learns that the world he inhabits is one full of dangerous spirits and, along with Rukia--who is slowly regaining her powers--it's Ichigo's job to protect the innocent from Hollows and help the spirits themselves find peace.

Book Review: Bleach, Vol. 1 by Tite Kubo - Reviewed by (19 Jul 2011)

Stylish and incredibly sleek, those are the only words that can describe Bleach. Tite Kubo has drawn a manga based on 'Soul Reapers' whom collect lost souls and also fight off 'Hollows' who attempt to consume said souls.

While a simple premise, and some could assume that this will turn to a monster of the week type story, that's entirely false. The plot of this series does appear to be a monster-of-the-week thus far, but when we delve deeper into latter volumes, will readers realise just how emotionally invested they were in many of the characters.

I can't describe much of the story, without spoiling a lot. Quite simply, the world of Bleach is very 'cool'. Defining angles, and great dialogue make this series standout. And it won't be hard to like the protagonist, Ichigo Kurosaki.

Overall, a fantastic volume that shows exactly why Bleach is known for it's coolness.
