(02/07/2016)Wonderful until chapter 423. Then the plot falls to the ground and as far as I am concerned it's going on digging. At the moment I'm only reading it because of a vague curiosity for the ending.
EDIT (04/01/2017): The conclusion was by far the worst thing I've ever read in a manga. If I had to judge the last two-hundred-and-something chapters of the series I would have to give 1 star, I only keep it to 3 stars because the first half was very, very good.
This book was darker than I thought it would be. I thought the mythology was quite interesting and I really find this series intriguing. There is also some great humor inside. I really enjoyed reading this and recommend reading this series.
What a world Tite Kubo has envisoned!! At first, Bleach may seem like your typical shonen manga but the themes, tons of characters development, political plotting and a very un-typical heroine all elevate Bleach to another level.
