Bleach Volume 1 (2004) by Tite Kubo

Description: Ichigo Kurosaki has always been able to see ghosts, but this ability doesn’t change his life nearly as much as his lose encounter with Rukia Kuchiki, a Soul reaper and member of the mysterious Soul Society. while fighting a Hollow, an devil 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.

Review: 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.

Score: 4.5 out of 5
