    An entire story arc focused on a long-awaited battle between Grimmjow and Ichigo Kurosaki. Naturally epic, perfectly stretched out, with some flashback sequences to give the rival an origin story. The volume ends on a cliffhanger as another foe makes his entrance. It should be noted that there really never seems to be any limit to Ichigo Kurosaki's willpower and how much pain he can endure. It's like everyone's stamina refills at abnormal speeds, but hey, it makes for some exciting battles!

Orihime Inoue finishes healing Ichigo Kurosaki and he begins to fight Grimmjow Jaegerjaquez. Even after using his Bankai, Ichigo finds himself outmatched against Grimmjow. However, Ichigo dons his hollow mask, which he can now use for longer stints as Grimmjow responds by releases his zanpakutō, their fight observed by the Espada Tier Halibel and her three Fracciones. Though Ichigo is slowly worn down by Grimmjow, Orihime musters the courage to cheer for him and he manages to deal a blow across Grimmjow's chest. Grimmjow, despite being wounded, refuses to give up as he uses his strongest attack on Ichigo. However, Ichigo overcomes it and deals a final blow, leaving Grimmjow on the ground while preparing to take Orihime away from Las Noches. However, Grimmjow refuses to end the fight there before he is suddenly attacked by Nnoitra Gilga. This tankōbon is written and illustrated by Tite Kubo. The entire tankōbon covers the fight between Ichigo Kurosaki and Grimmjow Jaegerjaquez, who has a personal beef with each other. It was a well drawn and paced fight with addition twist with power-ups for each fighter. Additionally, the bonus chapter is focused on Tōshirō Hitsugaya's backstory, showing how he discovered his Soul Reaper powers and met Rangiku Matsumoto, his future lieutenant. All in all, Bleach, Vol. 32 is a wonderful continuation to a series that seems intriguing and I cannot wait to read more.

    Ichigo and Grimmjow go face to face with all their powers. It's pretty much just an entire fighting volume. It's not bad, some cool moves, and watching Ichigo do a finishing move was great. Getting a bit of background on Grimmjow was also interesting. But it ends how you'd expect, some new baddie comes along, and now we must face them. It gets a little exhausting hitting the same exact beats. Ichigo and Grimmjow go face to face with all their powers. It's pretty much just an entire fighting volume.

    Bleach is a decent one for practicing the 日本語 because it's a bit more sparse, dialogue wise, in this part of the story, which becomes much more action oriented. Probably a bit of a trivial read in English but quite a decent challenge for my low Japanese level!

    GREAT battle!!! Grimmjow Vs. Ichigo is was a long waited one... Ichigo get to extened his Hollow state for more than 11 seconds maybe Orihimi had a hand in that not in her healing power but just by being their watching all of that from a far kinnda fearing and rooting him :p The ending was awesome both for the battle and for the back story of Toshiro :)

    Seems like this is the conclusion of the Ichigo vs Grimmjow fight (for now). Has some great back story for Grimmjow, a lot of awesome action scenes, and I love Grimm's panther king state. The extra story at the end (meant as a teaser for the DiamondDust Rebellion film) is pretty good too. Seems like this is the conclusion of the Ichigo vs Grimmjow fight (for now).

    Given that Manga, and especially Shonen is split up into bigger arcs as composed to volumes I will be analyzing and reviewing this by Arc. I also reread this manga over the span of 2 months, some days reading as much as 100 chapters a day. It would be quite tedious for me to review each 7-8 chapter volume. So this will be copy and pasted throughout all of the 72 manga volumes. That being said, if you're looking at this without having viewed the series...spoiler warning. I don't recap anything, b Given that Manga, and especially Shonen is split up into bigger arcs as composed to volumes I will be analyzing and reviewing this by Arc.

So this will be copy and pasted throughout all of the 72 manga volumes. That being said, if you're looking at this without having viewed the series...spoiler warning. I don't recap anything, but I also mention things that happen. If you want me to answer the question "Should I pick this up?" Yes. Even if you stop at the end of the Soul Society Arc. It's worth it. Karakura Town Arc - Chapters 1-56 - Rating: 7/10 (The official page lumps this in with the Soul Society Arc however I feel as if they are two very separate arcs with two very separate themes) - A fun introduction. -An interesting premise on the idea of ghosts and demons (Hollows) -Does a good job of introducing the characters and I especially enjoyed the love for characters like Chad, Orihime and Uryu as these characters would later lose more and more spotlight as the series went on. -It is a bit of a monster of the week. When it works, like with Chad's introduction story. It works. But Characters like Don Kanonji felt superficial and very gimmicky. Which, fair. I didn't enjoy them as much. Soul Society Arc - Chapters 57-182 - Rating: 10/10 -The height of Bleach -Establishes an afterlife seemingly perfectly. Later on revealed to be full of plot holes and never fleshed out but hey! That's not an issue in THIS arc. The fights are top tier, the themes of Ichigo owing a life debt to Rukia and his passion and determination to rise above literally God's army is inspiring and to this day is why I love Ichigo so much. He doesn't have some grandiose plan. He doesn't have a major goal to accomplish. He is a protector by heart, losing his mother has made him sour to failing to protect those he cares about and he'll do anything in his power never to feel that helpless again. Very powerful stuff. -The twist near the end of this arc is revolutionary and would make waves for the next 200 chapters onward. A perfect ending and set up for the forthcoming arc. -The only issues I have for this arc would be Ichigo's lightning speed progression. The guy goes from being able to barely defeat a third seat to besting multiple captains in roughly 100 or less chapters. I get that that is the point and him defeating captains was more of a struck of luck, but progression and pacing wise it feels very unearned and a factor of "for the plot he needed to be this strong" It only seems as fast as it is because Ichigo's progression slows drastically down for the rest of the story moving foreword so it's only now that I make that criticism. -Also, and this will be an issue in most Shonen. There are 13 Captains with 13 Vice Captains and seats that branch all the way to 10 I believe? Regardless, there's a fudge ton of characters that are introduced here and it can get a little jarring at times. Luckily, Kubo does a great job at making their designs and characters unique despite such a large cast. Hueco Mundo Arc - Chapters 183-423 - Rating 7/10 -This is another arc where personally I would split it up into two separate arcs. But for the sake of this review I will simply refer to the first half of the arc and the later half of the arc. First Half 9/10. Second Half. 5/10. -The first half of this arc is a great continuation of the last. Ichigo now struggles with his inner demons and it affects his ability to protect the ones he loves. We are also introduced to a deadly unknown new villains. The Arrancars/Espada to this day remain one of my favorite villain factions in all of manga enemies. -Just so you're aware I would say the first half of this arc ends right around the point of Ichigo vs Grimmjow. Grimmjow is one of the first Arrancar that Ichigo faces. And he's also one of two Espada that he faces three times. The conclusion of that fight shows Ichigo conquering his inner demons. Where Grimmjow is very much fighting to establish himself. Grimmjow has to fight Ichigo to prove to his fallen comrades that he is as good as he says he is. He doesn't care about Aizen, he doesn't care about the rest of the Espada. It is very personal for him. For Ichigo, Orohime is within his grasp of saving and he views this as his "final" battle. It's my favorite fight in all of Bleach. -However, this is where things start to take a bit of dip in quality in my opinion. We had a goal and we were striving towards that goal. Each character of the original cast coming to repay the debt they made to their friend who had risked her life to save them in the Soul society arc. But somewhere along the way it seems we just had a fighter fest. Captains would face enemies with no themes or character revelations. The Espadas got a little light but nothing that made their fights compelling. You almost just feel bad for the Espada as they were monsters turned into a military force by an unstoppable tyrant. But even that wasn't enough to make half of the fights interesting. Now, that's with knowing the outcome. These fights played little importance in the larger scheme of things. Where at least in the Hueco Mundo fights each match up had the protagonists striving for a goal. Rukia to defeat Aaroneiro to free her former superiors soul. Byakuya to defend Rukia. Renji and Uryu teamwork. Nel to protect Ichigo and get revenge on Nnoitra. Whereas Stark fought Kyoraku.....cause.....and Hitsugaya fought Halibel because Water vs Ice would be cool. -This leaves me to the end. I won't say it wasn't satisfying that Ichigo was able to defeat Aizen. And yes, I do feel like his new power was earned. 3 months of training. But this was clearly a last minute decision to save Aizen for a later date and the show must go on. I do feel like it wasn't as satisfying as 200+ chapter buildup needed to be. The Fullbring Arc - Chapters 424-479 - Rating: 8/10 -A very underrated arc. And yes, I acknowledge that rating wise I think the Fullbring arc is superior to the Hueco Mundo arc. That is mostly true. Though I like the first half of the Hueco Mundo Arc more than the Fullbring arc. The end of the HM arc really brought it down for me. The Fullbring Arc is much more concise and is actually the shortest arc in the series and works as a glorified Ichigo getting his powers back arc. But that doesn't mean its bad. -When I read it originally back when it was coming out in 2010. (Cause I'm Old) It wasn't phenomenal. In fact, I hated it. But wouldn't you? It took just short of a year to get to the point that we were at. But upon rereading it, it gave much deserved love to the characters who hadn't been shown love in quite some time. The original cast. It was a very character focused arc. Ichigo never seemed more human. And despite me hating it before for taking so long, reading weekly can sometimes hurt these mystery based arcs. The twist is heavily foreshadowed and I really appreciated it. -That being said, the end was super rushed. This was a big bummer for me. The villains this time around were humans. And the ones who had the most exposure and relations with these characters were the original cast who again....were humans. So to have the soul reapers, who have no connection to the fullbringers show up and basically no diff most of the fullbringers felt very forced and fanservicey to me. This very well could have not been Kubo's call. As the community was very vocal about their dislike for this arc as it was going on. But I appreciate it now much more as I appreciate character and story over big sword fights. Lol. The Thousand Year Blood War Arc - Chapters 424-689 - Rating: 5/10 -And we're finally here. The final and largest arc within the Bleach story. And man...does it not stick the landing. -That being said, this arc has phenomenal moments. Kenpachi's Shikai and Bankai. Ichigo's double swords. Renji's true Bankai. Rukia's Bankai. And many more. However, they are put together against the most break neck speed arc that I have ever read. Kubo was very ambitious when he introduced 26 new villains. However, most of them got barely any screen time and a lot of them even got off screened by higher level captains. This was unlike the Espada who each got a full double page spread for their Resurrections. -Yhwach himself was a phenomenal villain but was dealt with swiftly and imo dirty. They did him dirty. -There was just something off. The mood changed and it was very apparent. The villains had random powers instead of the powers reflecting their personalities or needs. The finale felt so underwhelming. -Ichigo gets to be the strongest he's ever been....but he doesn't defeat a single person besides the main villain despite being in several fights. -It isn't a good arc. In fact, I would say it's the worst. Hopefully the anime does a better job with this already mammoth of a story. 260 chapters is no joke. This gives the story of Bleach an Overall rating of 7.4/10. Which to me is above average. It has it's ups and downs. It's not perfect. But when it's high, it's peak shonen. But when it's low, it's very forgettable.

    Nel and Orihime are stricken at the idea of Ichigo having to face down Grimmjow yet again, but he assures them everything will be all right. Heartened by his words, Orihime reassures the still upset Nel that Ichigo is a man of his word, and if he says he will do something, he will. Grimmjow continues to taunt Ichigo until he releases his inner Hollow, which frightens Orihime. Is this the same Ichigo she has always known? Now it is Nel’s turn to tell Orihime to have faith and to cheer on Ichigo, Nel and Orihime are stricken at the idea of Ichigo having to face down Grimmjow yet again, but he assures them everything will be all right.

Grimmjow continues to taunt Ichigo until he releases his inner Hollow, which frightens Orihime. Is this the same Ichigo she has always known? Now it is Nel’s turn to tell Orihime to have faith and to cheer on Ichigo, for if they don’t, who will? Gillians are the lowest class of Menos. They consume souls to the point where they lose all individuality. But occasionally, one of the consumed Hollows takes control of the others and dominates, continuing to consume until it becomes an Adjucha. If this Adjucha doesn’t continue to eat Hollows, it will regress into a Gillian and then there is no coming back from that. This is the perpetual fear that keeps them going. Grimmjow was once such an Adjucha, who continued to climb in the ranks until he became an Espada. He never wishes to go back again, so he must defeat Ichigo. Although, if he fails, there is always another Espada waiting in the wings… This volume of Bleach is concerned with the ongoing epic battle between Ichigo and Grimmjow, both of whom are determined to win. This fight was inevitable, considering their history together. Orihime and Nel are helpless to do other than cheer Ichigo on, but never underestimate the value of a good rooting section! Reading about how Grimmjow became what he is was interesting, and gives us more insight into the hierarchy of the Hollows, as well as their development. There is also a bonus story concerning Hitsugaya which I enjoyed. Looking forward to the next volume!

    One of my absolute favorite volumes of the series, focusing on a great antagonist (and one of my favorite characters overall) and what drove him to the extremes even by the standards of the villains introduced to this point. It was also one of my favorite points of growth for the protagonist as well, and really did a great job highlighting some of the best themes of the series.

    The entirety of this volume is about the fight between Ichigo and Grimmjow. This is one of the best fights so far. It also deals with Orihime seeing Ichigo's mask for the first time, and Grimmjow's back story. He's really blood-thirsty, but I can't help but like him. Bad news at the end of this volume so the next volume looks just as intense. The entirety of this volume is about the fight between Ichigo and Grimmjow. This is one of the best fights so far.

Grimmjow has officially become one of my favorite characters. He had me at Pantera. Aside from having a special power named after one of my favorite bands, he looks freakin' cool doing it! (view spoiler)[I didn't even realize it was him on the cover. (hide spoiler)] I loved the short backstory on Tōshirō Hitsugaya. There really isn't enough of him in this series, so I'm happy to see the focus on him and hope there will be more. So after much complaining, my tune has definitely changed with this awesome volume. I want to find out more about Grimmjow and Ulquiorra. I can't wait to read the next one! *runs out to get Volume 33* Favorite Characters ... so far: * Byakuya Kuchiki * Renji Abarai * Isshin Kurosaki * Kisuke Urahara * Ichigo Kurosaki * Jūshirō Ukitake * Kenpachi Zaraki * Grimmjow Jaegerjaques * Ulquiorra Cifer * The Great Desert Bros.

I'm so proud that Ichigo can stay Hollowfyed for so long!! (Now I sound like a substitute mother...). Orihime becomes wary of Ichigo's motive for coming, if he came to save her or just fight Grimmjow and becomes terrified when she sees Ichigo Hollowfyed, but continues to have faith in her friend. Grimmjow somehow turns himself to look more like a panther, but still a human-panther. We get short flashes of his past, and how he basically came to exist, (and how he had to eat his friends). I guess with the flashbacks it's easier to understand where Grimmjow's stand point is, but yet everyone considered an enemy is usually power-crazy. Ichigo and Nel cheer for Ichigo, which basically gave him the will to finish off Grimmjow. HOW IN THE WORLD IS ICHIGO LEVITATING DID I MISS SOMETHING?!? Nel definitely knows the rules of women. You say she's really light, even if she weighs a ton. :3 What I found kind of funny, is that Ichigo told Grimmjow: "Wouldn't it be more satisfying to fight me over and over again? So... Let it go for now!" He basically took the words from Kenpachi Zaraki's mouth! And Ichigo was always complaining about Kenpachi saying that, but now he's saying it himself. Ah, they grow up so fast. Did anyone else notice that Ichigo's eyes were drawn a little bit rounder than usual after his eyes stopped being black? It makes him look cuter, more concerned looking, but its not like him. The sharpness in his eyes make him look determined and strong, so it's interesting to see them differently. Ichigo is DEFINITELY not ready to fight another Espada, since he's still injured. Grimmjow let Orihime heal him, so time didn't really matter, but now he's gotta fight (I assume) the number one Espada. Darn. I was almost sure that Ulquiorra was going to appear again before Ichigo and Grimmjow's battle was over, but I guess I spoke too soon because this is a lot worse. I'm so happy that we finally figured out Tôshirô's past, because I have been fretting in the back of my mind for a while. I was a little surprised that Matsumoto met him before he became a Soul Reaper, and was actually the person to convince him to become one, but I shouldn't have been. His poor grandmother... She must've been freezing to death every single night!! It's interesting that no one realized he had such a high spiritual pressure before then. Now we just need to figure out what happened to their parents... I'm still a little confused if Tôshirô and Momo are siblings or cousins or just simply friends...? I'm not sure, I might look it up later. Well, since Ichigo is not being given a break between battles, I don't need a break in between volumes. :3

    By time you have gotten to the 32nd book of the series I am sure you must have a good idea about the level of violence regardless of the book only being rated Teen. Just in case you are reading this review before any other book in the series you should know it is action oriented and often involves weapons used by soul reapers so it might not be appropriate for all audiences.

With Ichigo and Grimmjow healed the fateful battle since Ichigo scarred his chest earlier in the series is at hand. Although the majority of the manga is action shots of the fight between Ichigo and Grimmjow we also get treated to some origins involving Grimmjow and to a degree his minions from earlier in the series. In the end of the book we get a also get a look into the the past of Captain Toshiro Hitsugaya when he was a youth in soul society and how Rangiku Matsumoto (his present lieutenant) discovers jhime and sets him on his path for greatness. My favorite part of this book would have to be when Nel "scolds" Ichigo for his insensitive remarks to Orihime after she worries she is heavy while he carries her away from the fight scene. You'll have to read if you want to understand why I find this scene amusing. :)

    The Bleach Volume 32 have a nice picture of a ESPADA(Grimjaw) in his transformed body, with the words 'HOWLING' There r about 8 chapters in this volume spanning from 279-286 This book is more of a action based, and all images were clean & crisp as for the expectation from this book I had few questions like what happned to rukia & what will Ishida Uryuu & abarai will do against healing ZaeruApollo, and The Fight between Grimjaw & Kurosaki The one thing that was totally unexpected was Grimjaws transf The Bleach Volume 32 have a nice picture of a ESPADA(Grimjaw) in his transformed body, with the words 'HOWLING' There r about 8 chapters in this volume spanning from 279-286 This book is more of a action based, and all images were clean & crisp as for the expectation from this book I had few questions like what happned to rukia & what will Ishida Uryuu & abarai will do against healing ZaeruApollo, and The Fight between Grimjaw & Kurosaki The one thing that was totally unexpected was Grimjaws transformation.. & not to forget how the book ended with new member of ESPADA coming to fight with Ichigo right after Grimjaw. What kept me Hooked : First chapter started with Kurosaki going for fight with Grimjaw in second chapter battle rages on… and chapter ends with Royal hollow Flash blocked by Kurosaki and rest of the chapters include a great fight between Kurosaki and Grimjaw, there were some instances of history of Grimjaw. the book without doubt was good

    I've been lamenting this series for the past several volumes and yet somehow, despite this book being almost everything I hate about the series, really works. The majority is Ichigo's (final?) showdown with Grimmjow and it's mostly fighting with some background on the villain's origin. Despite Ichigo's normally annoying stubborn "hit it harder" mentality, these two manage to bring out more from each other than has any other combat pairing to date. Can't explain why, I guess Tite Kubo just had a go I've been lamenting this series for the past several volumes and yet somehow, despite this book being almost everything I hate about the series, really works.

Can't explain why, I guess Tite Kubo just had a good month or something. It also has a back-up origin story about Hitsugaya, which also provides a nice finisher to a strong issue.

    Bleach was definitely very interesting to read and different to what I usually read. I enjoyed the whole soul reaper concept and how we find out more and more about the main character as the story goes on. It's a fast read and is easy to understand but gets progressively more difficult to follow parts of the story due to there being so many different characters that can be qualified as important in the progression of the story. I would recommend it for the story line and the graphics but I do feel Bleach was definitely very interesting to read and different to what I usually read.

I would recommend it for the story line and the graphics but I do feel like there are a certain amount of plot holes or at least not detailed out enough parts. I give the series 3 stars, the beginning possibly deserving 4 stars and slowly falling to 3 stars.

    I can sum this up in a few words. Ichigo fights Grimjowl while Orihime and Nell cheer him on. No lie. That’s the whole volume, one long fight scene broken up with Grimjowl’s history. It ends with Ichigo carrying Orihime over his shoulder (why? She’s not hurt) and saying she wasn’t that heavy. Um what? It’s getting to the point it’s not worth getting even from the library. The only thing of interest was Toshiro’s side story.

    Have you ever read any of the bleach books because if you haven't your going to have to read them. These books are the coolest books ever because they show pictures and they are awesome. This book is about Ichigo Kurosaki fighting a person named Grimmjow. Ichigo is fighting Grimmjow because Ichigo is trying to save this person called Orihime.
