R to L (Japanese Style) now with reinforced Library Binding! Cleaning up the afterlife ? one spirit at a time! Hot-tempered 15-year-old Ichigo Kurosaki, the hero of the popular fantasy-adventure "Bleach," has the unsettling ability to see spirits who are unable to rest in peace. His sixth sense leads him to Rukia, a Soul Reaper who destroys "Hollows" (soul-devouring monsters) and ensures the deceased find repose with the Soul Society. When she's injured in battle, Rukia transfers her sword and much of her power to Ichigo, whose spiritual energy makes him a formidable substitute Soul Reaper. But the orange-haired teenager isn't sure he wants the job: too many risks and moral dilemmas.

Well, you probably shouldn't call him that either. His name is Kurosaki Ichigo, a 15 year old student who can see and speak to the dead. Enter a hard-working Soul Reaper named Rukia who has tracked down a hallow (an evil spirit) in Ichigo's house. The threat to his family leads Ichigo to accept Rukia's Soul Reaper's powers on a temporary-loan basis, but the transfer sucks most of Rukia's powers from her and Ichigo procedes to kick some Hallow butt. This isn't a hero-slays-the-evil-spirits-every-time manga. Ichigo learns a Hallow isn't always a "stock" evil character. It could be someone he knows. A healthy mix of comedy, hip-hop culture, and the samurai way, Bleach is considered a less jagged version of "Samurai Champloo". I, however, see no comparison. Both are equally well drawn and compelling.
