This was the first manga artbook I ever bought and it’s well loved and getting quite worn.
Bleach, by Tite Kubo was definitely the anime that got me hooked, and eventually inspired me to work on my own manga, so naturally it has a special spot in the bookshelf of my heart.
So you forget the big three...
Ichigo Kurosaki never asked for the ability to see ghosts--he was born with the gift.
Bleach is author Tite Kubo's second title with Weekly Shonen Jump. To date, Bleach has been translated into numerous languages and has also inspired an animated TV series that began airing in Japan in 2004. Beginning its serialization in 2001, Bleach is still a mainstay in the pages of Weekly Shonen Jump. In 2005, Bleach was awarded the prestigious Shogakukan Manga Award in the shonen (boys) category.

This book is a great basic template
Bleach was my gateway drug
Should I buy?
At an easy $20 (this book is old you’ll certainly find it on sale) it’s a must have for any Bleach fan, but even Shonen Jump or manga fans!
