I was sent digital ARCs (Advanced Readers Copy) of these volumes for review.  I found them very hard to read on a Kindle Touch.  The formatting was weird.  The pages were scanned in sideways and cut in half with tons of ‘white space” all around.  Even setting the Kindle to landscape mode did not help. Mom said that ARCs are not always the final product that gets sold, so hopefully they will fix this before release day.

Bleach #50

 

My Thoughts:

In Bleach Volumes #50 & #51, the Fullbring arc continues. Ichigo, with the help of of his new Fullbringer allies, works toward regaining his Shinigami powers.

Overall, these volumes were great, but this Arc is kind of short in comparison to the others, for example, the Arrancar Arc was very long, and had plenty of fights. These volumes did lack in most of the action Bleach is known for. There are only 3 Major fights out of both Volumes, normally there are atleast 6 per 2 Volumes. For the first fight, Ichigo spent his time running like a chicken, meh… What’s worse, is that they put the cliffhanger at a horrible place. In the middle of the fight with the Fullbring Leader. Of course, this is just me griping about how short and stale the arc is, and how dry these volumes were. Over all, It is Bleach, but a solid dry arc.

3/5
