My previous posts are about Bleach anime/manga. You might be asking what the hell is Bleach? Intially it is a story of a young boy named Ichigo Kurosaki and his friends Uryuu Ishida, Rukia Kuchiki, Yasutora Sado, and Inoue Orihime (as shown in the picture, Ichigo is the orange-haired guy followed by the others in clockwise direction, don’t mind the stuffed toy… it’s just Kon LOL!). The adventure begins when Ichigo met Rukia, a Shinigami, which should not be the case because humans cannot see spirits including Shinigamis but Ichigo is exempted for he has the ability to see them. The duties of a Shinigami are to send Pluses (spirits) to Soul Society and to cleanse Hollows (evil spirit) by defeating them. When Rukia was injured battling the Hollow, she was left no choice but to pass half of her power to Ichigo but with his unusual strength, Ichigo absorbed almost all of Rukia’s powers making him a substitute shinigami.

Gotei 13

September 7, 2007 Leave a comment

Gotei 13 is the 13 squads of the Shinigamis in the manga/anime series Bleach. Each division is headed by a Captain, then a Vice-Captain/Lieutenant, and Seated Officers. The Captain of the 1st Squad is also the General of the Gotei 13. The Shinigamis are those who are in kimono armed with a sword (like the guys in Samurai X but the thing is, they all wear black) while their Captains wear an extra white dress with a unique diamond printed at the back that symbolizes Gotei 13. Inside the diamond is the number indicating what squad they belong. The above picture shows the original and the most prominent Captains of the 13 Squads.
