Bleach Season 2

Since Rukia’s execution date is rapidly approaching, Ichigo and his friends make haste to enter the Soul Society.

What began as a rescue effort turns into a homicidal conspiracy inside the top ranks of the Soul Society itself as friends, adversaries, and unlikely allies struggle. Ichigo discovers his inner monster, Rukia confronts a ghost from her own history, and the inner-societal leaders race against time to unearth a traitor.

Are Renji, Byakuya, and Kenpachi a friend or a foe to the group? In order to save Rukia, can Ichigo beat these men—the most formidable opponents he’s ever faced—who stand in his way?

Bleach Season 2: Review

Bleach Season 2

Bleach Season 2 is much better than the splotchy first season of Bleach. New faces, stronger audio and vocal direction, stronger character interactions, deeper plotlines, some interpersonal conflict, and more consistent good humor are all part of this game’s appeal.

In spite of its notable improvements, Bleach is still average mainly because it still fails to hit a lot of aspects: deeper character compatibility and integration, less reliance on clichés and deus ex machina, heroes of the underdog, genuinely dangerous conflicts, stronger audio direction, layered character-based clashes, thorough character assimilation and more integrated plot elements with actual, long-term plot relevance.

The bottom line is that Bleach has improved, but it’s still plagued by the same issues that afflicted it in season one. In spite of its apparent upward trajectory, the series hasn’t quite made it to the summit yet to merit a rating above “average,” despite its apparent upward trajectory.

That’s not even taking into account the fact that Bleach’s plot and character development aren’t exactly excellent. Is Bleach a hopeless case? That’s not the reality, by the way. The show’s top-selling and most-watched charts prove it.


When it comes to its stunning characters, dramatic imagery, and fierce battles, Bleach is hard to resist. There isn’t a whole lot of well-crafted substance behind that lovely surface layer.

Thus, it can be said Bleach Season 2, teeters on the precipice between plot-breaking pitfalls and praise-worthy pretension.
