Summary : High school student Kurosaki Ichigo is unlike any ordinary kid. Why? Because he can see ghosts. Ever since a young age, he's been able to see spirits from the afterlife. Ichigo's life completely changes one day when he and his two sisters are attacked by an evil, hungry and tormented spirit known as a Hollow. Right in the nick of time, Ichigo and his siblings are aided by a Shinigami (Death God) named Kuchiki Rukia, whose responsibility it is to send good spirits (Pluses) to the afterlife known as Soul Society, and to purify Hollows and send them up to Soul Society. But during the fight against the Hollow, Rukia is injured and must transfer her powers to Ichigo. With this newly acquired power, so begins Kurosaki Ichigo's training and duty as a Shinigami to maintain the balance between the world of the living and the world of the dead...
They are already 20 arcs (arc = season), and it's has a little more till it ends!
You might think it's a little dark, or a little stupid. But it's a great serie! In fact, it has a lot of humor, normally in situations unexpected!
So basically the story it's about a society that send the souls that are on Earth to the afterlife, and purify the bad souls, known as Hollows. And this story begans when Ichigo, you can call it in a situation of emergency , it's turn into a Shinigami, a member of that society, and then it work begans to clean the city where he lives from Hollows and send the souls to Soul Society, with the help of Rukia.
As the serie goes, you start to know a lot of characthers, all with his problems, mysteries and tics. You learn a lot on how the society works, the members, the background story. The powers of all the members, the powers from their swords known has Zanpakutou. Ichigo friend's, some of them, learn that they have some powers, and go with him in all the adventures. Yes, there are a lot of adventures to save people most of the time. What I don't like of this serie, it's because it's quicker than the manga and sometimes the series arrives to a point when there is no story from the manga books, so they do what they caller "fillers": it's parallel storys, or free episodes from their lifes. For example right now I'm on arc 13 and it's a filler season when the Zanpakutous rebel. It's a little annoying because normally it's betweens great battles.
Ah! I forgot to say, Ichigo it's turn into a Shinigami but it turns out it's a super powerful Vizard and what else more!
It's a good serie, the episodes are small, but you get addicted and you need to see one more, and one more, and one more! I do that specially when are my favourite characters on the story like Byakuya Kuchiki, Yoruichi Shihõin, and Kisuke Urahara. And I cannor forget the most epic character from all times: Kon. He is the most sweet and pervert stuffed lion, occupied by a mod soul than once stoled Ichigo body. But it turns out it came handy that someone ocuppied on ichigo body when he turns to Shinigami. If you search on youtube you will see a lot of movies with him. Another think I'm addicted... it's to sing the intro musics (shame I know.. I really TRY to read the japonese).
I really recoment people to see this seres, it has a lot of story in her, it has a lot of humor, it has a lot of action, it has a lot of fluffly thins and samurai things. It even has intrigue and a badass enemy that deceived everyone for a long time. So really, see it guys you won't regreat it!
