Cleaning up the afterlife – one spirit at a time!

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

Ever since he was little, Ichigo Kurosaki has been able to see the spirits of the dead, so when a teenage girl materializes through his bedroom wall, this should be no call for alarm. Rukia Kuchiki is a shinigami, a member of the mysterious Soul Society that is charged with capturing rogue ghosts, and is hot on the trail of an evil spirit. But in the ensuing confrontation, Ichigo absorbs Rukia's powers, giving him the ability to not only see the undead, but to fight them as well. Now this 15-year-old high school student begins a brand new vocation: hyperkinetic, all-purpose ghost-busting. With enough attitude to make a grown ghost blush, Ichigo and crew are taking on the after-life one ghoulie at time.

The Slashing Opera Ichigo and his friends knew invading Hueco Mundo wouldn't be easy, but even the lesser Arrancars are pushing them to their limits! Can Ichigo, Uryû and Chad find the inner strength to overcome the first line of attack, or will Orihime be stuck in Hueco Mundo forever?! 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!

In this book it leads into another very long fight scene. -sigh- those are my least favorite parts. I haven't been in these types of fights before (well no one has ever battled with a real hollow or espada before) but I don't think they talk as much...

Vol 29 starts with the 2nd half of the Ichigo/Dordoni battle and the hilarious Nel healing drool scene! Gotta' love it. The main battle in this volume is the Cirucci vs. Uriyu and Pesche battle, which was well illustrated. It's much more detailed than the anime and for that I highly recommend it. Chad begins his fight against Mosqueda towards the end of the book, introducing 2 new powers, and leaves you hanging for volume 30. This book includes a funny side story of the shinigamis going to a beach for some sand sculpting contest. Rangiku teaches Orihime how to carry water without a bucket by using her boobs! It's very hilarious even if all you see are their backsides. Rangiku is so naughty. This book is a great one to add to your Bleach manga collection.

It's an awesome book, especially with Cirucci on the cover. Unfourtanently if you watch the anime Bleach (which on adultswim is up to this point in the book), it's basically the same thing, BUT the Bleach series IS the kind of thing to re-read.
