Carla from Denkiphile Entertainment: "When I first began reading Bleach, I was 14 and a freshman in high school. The concept was basic enough. A boy of 15 with orange hair could see ghosts. My interest was piqued by an adult swim promo and then, sometime after that, a friend told me I should start reading the manga. I did and it was good. It wasn’t groundbreaking, but the story was coherent enough, characters likable enough, concept cool enough, and most importantly fights were filled with special moves and lots of high pressure blood. At 14 I thought Bleach was pretty good. I’m 21 now and I can safely say that Bleach is pretty terrible and it’s not simply because I got older. Bleach is terrible because all of the things that I listed as good devolved horribly."
