Anime: Informal Commentary/Review, Bleach: Season One Episode One

So I keep on hearing the name Bleach in the anime community but I have never seen it or found out what its about. I suppose there is a first time for everything. This is going to be a long anime to get through but I can’t wait to get started!

Here we go, I know nothing of this anime.
Screen Shot 2018-07-22 at 22.00.29
Well the opening seemed light hearted but this had a odd creepy feeling to it.
Screen Shot 2018-07-22 at 22.49.26
What is that? Some kind of mist or shadows?
Screen Shot 2018-07-22 at 22.50.45
Who are you? And spirits are involved in this show? Cool.
Screen Shot 2018-07-22 at 22.51.52
Huh? Well you sure are sane arn’t you? Okay I’m sure there is a reasonable explanation as to why he’s so upset over a vase being cracked.
Screen Shot 2018-07-22 at 22.53.34
Oh! Okay, see I knew there would be a reasonable explenation. Though kind of dark to start of with this subject despite the fight seeming not that serious and more comical to me.
Screen Shot 2018-07-22 at 22.56.01
Oh wow, okay, this makes even more sense now. I feel so sorry for that young girl though.
Screen Shot 2018-07-22 at 22.57.18
Fifteen? No way! You look like you’re in your early twenties at least kid. Are all the characters in this going to look freakishly older to their actual age?
Screen Shot 2018-07-22 at 22.59.04
And you find that normal do you?
Screen Shot 2018-07-22 at 22.59.58
What the hell? He barely looks older than him what father treats his son like that? I know it was meant for comical relief but jeez that looked like a hard hit and makes me feel a little uncomfortable. Will his dad be kicking him like that on a regular bases? I hope not.
Screen Shot 2018-07-22 at 23.03.14
I sense bull, how can you not believe in them when you told him where it was? Unless you believe they are not ghosts but something else? Or your a stubborn idiot.
Screen Shot 2018-07-22 at 23.05.19
Stubborn idiot it is then Karin. I’m glad you have a simple name I can remember.
Screen Shot 2018-07-22 at 23.06.34
I don’t know, maybe you should stop physically fighting your kid? Just a gues
Screen Shot 2018-07-22 at 23.08.16
I have no sympathy for you and I kind of want you of my screen. Can we go back to our obvious main character sulking in hid bedroom or get him out of the room and only focus on the girls?
Screen Shot 2018-07-22 at 23.10.04
Yes! This anime just got one hundred times better.
Screen Shot 2018-07-22 at 23.11.35
What the hell? I am excited to see whats next.
Screen Shot 2018-07-22 at 23.12.25
Screen Shot 2018-07-22 at 23.13.30
Nice! I now have a billion questions!
Screen Shot 2018-07-22 at 23.14.27
I like you, can I keep you? Barely know anything about you but you and that ghost girl are my new favourite characters.
Screen Shot 2018-07-22 at 23.16.08
What are you doing? Don’t just walk away dam it! I need answers! Okay your officially not my favourite character any more.
Screen Shot 2018-07-22 at 23.18.21
I really love the butterfly imagery. I wonder if she can literally turn into it or if its just there to signify her arrival. Also I’m guessing that somethings after him now and she is trying to protect him? Judging by the hand on sword and looking around.
Screen Shot 2018-07-22 at 23.20.16
Dude! What the hell?! I know your frustrated but seriously?!
Screen Shot 2018-07-22 at 23.21.26
Oh! Haha, well that explains why she ignored him but then why didn’t she realise he was staring straight at her before?!
Screen Shot 2018-07-22 at 23.23.04
Now that sounds pretty cool if I don’t say so myself. I bet orange haired dude (Can’t remember how to spell his name) will become like her at some point, thats painfully obvious to me.
Screen Shot 2018-07-22 at 23.40.55
Ah, so thats where your sister gets her idiotic stubborness from. If that thing you saw wasn’t a demon then what was it genius?
Screen Shot 2018-07-22 at 23.44.08
I don’t blame her for that one bit.
Screen Shot 2018-07-22 at 23.45.28
Now thats interesting also if the soul society is a good place then is the netherworld the definition of hell or where that demon came from? Oh! Is it the place I saw from the beginning?
Screen Shot 2018-07-22 at 23.47.46
I wouldn’t say her drawing was bad just unexpected, haha.
Screen Shot 2018-07-22 at 23.49.03
No! I quite like how dark this can get but please no! Someone save her!
Screen Shot 2018-07-22 at 23.50.03
Huh, is orange hair the tasty soul his talking about? And phew so happy she’s save. She seems to cute and sweet to die (sort of die anyway) in that way.
Screen Shot 2018-07-22 at 23.52.41
Oh… did the idiot girl just try and ignore it and pretend it didn’t exist? Wouldn’t surprise me if thats how she got caught. Either way it should be interesting to see how the soul reaper and he hand or one of them handles the hollow.
Screen Shot 2018-07-22 at 23.55.52
Mmm, I bet he is going to break it though. I wonder if soul reapers are humans? If they’re not then I bet he’s a soul reaper. Unless she just means no humans other than soul reapers can break it.
Screen Shot 2018-07-22 at 23.57.43
This looks cool, I can’t wait to find out what the hell it is.
Screen Shot 2018-07-22 at 23.59.03
You’re going to run at it with a chair? Er…okay, lets see how well that works out for you.
Screen Shot 2018-07-23 at 00.00.32
Yeah, I’m not surprised…
Screen Shot 2018-07-23 at 00.01.39
(Sigh) Its after him isn’t it?
Screen Shot 2018-07-23 at 00.03.06
Congrats you are officially our main character. Maybe teaching him how to be a soul reaper will help him defend himself better (hint) (hint)
Screen Shot 2018-07-23 at 00.05.52
Why are many main characters such idiots? You have no fighting skills dude! At least compared to that girl you don’t. Letting her deal with it and not getting in her way would be much better and smarter option!
Screen Shot 2018-07-23 at 00.14.30
Wait.. WHAT? WTF?!
Screen Shot 2018-07-23 at 00.16.02
I’m so glad your not dead and hell yes, finally! Thank you!
Screen Shot 2018-07-23 at 00.17.08
Um…I’m not sure how I feel about this? Also so hold on a second, you want him to stab himself with your sword basically? I think I’d run for the hills instead.
Screen Shot 2018-07-23 at 00.19.11
I hope this doesn’t mean she’ll die? Though if she does die I do like these final moments and how they share each others names before doing it. It feels right and respectful.
Screen Shot 2018-07-23 at 00.21.03
I love this shot as well. Whether its giving her life and powers to him or just her powers either one works incredibly well for this scene.
Screen Shot 2018-07-23 at 00.22.36
That kind of irritates me even though he probably didn’t mean too. Can he give half of it back once he defeats the hollow?
Screen Shot 2018-07-23 at 00.24.49
Though whatever I think about his new power I can’t deny that is a badass shot.
Screen Shot 2018-07-23 at 00.26.07
Say what you will but I still can’t believe he’s meant to be fifteen years old.


Last Sentence Take Away: This episode doesn’t really get me hyped but it does intrigue me lots, can’t wait to watch more.
