Fans of Manga, or Japanese style cartoons, are sure to be dedicated followers of the Bleach series as well. This series, created by Tite Kubo has become wildly popular ever since its introduction in 2001. Its following is so great that it has led to the creation of a huge media franchise to satisfy the constant demand for more. What started as a serialized story was followed by two original video animations (OVSs) and many video games. To the delight of Bleach fans the creators even came up with animated full length films as well as rock musicals. Since there was still so much demand for Bleach images, the creators have even released a lot of merchandise for sale.
Devoted followers of this series will all say that what makes it so popular is that Bleach images are very different from those of other Manga and that it is very evident that the creators have put in a lot of effort to create it. This is high praise indeed since there is no shortage of competition, there being many Manga that have been successfully converted to video games and movies. In addition to the artwork, this อนิเมะ series is also popular due to its excellent story line and the way each character has been fleshed out.
The creator of this series has reached far and wide in order to pull inspiration for his illustrations. Starting with looking at other Manga, he has also looked to foreign influences in order to get ideas. It has a very contemporary look for a series that is based around the adventures of a character whose job it is to accompany souls of departed people to the afterlife and to defend people who are in trouble. Another thing that keeps Bleach unique from other Manga is the contradiction between how a character looks and what his or her personality is like. Even the fight sequences look very different from other Manga and have increased the fan following of this series.
Fans have appreciated the unique nature of Bleach so much that it has been among the top selling Manga in Japan as well as in North America. There is a great demand for Bleach images and the creators have tried to satisfy it by releasing an art book as well as some data books based upon the early comics. The art book is particularly valuable to fans of this series because it contains commentaries from the author regarding specific pictures taken from throughout the series. Bleach images are also easily available on the internet and they are always accompanied by heated discussions regarding the relative merits and demerits of various episodes.
