BLEACH 01 DVD
Released by VIZ Media
Review by Richard Mellott
When I first accepted this mission, it was with great trepidation. The extent of my memories of other Manga-turned-movies was limited to Spirited Away. This famous animated movie "... is a 2001 film by the Japanese anime studio Studio Ghibli, written and directed by famed animator Hayao Miyazaki. Spirited Away was named Best Animated Feature at the 75th Academy Awards," according to my search engine blurb. Spirited Away, the dialogue of which I found childish and often incomprehensible, set the standard, so I was not impressed with anime back in its heyday.
With that in mind, leap to Wikipedia's current entry on the evolution of the Bleach manga. "The Bleach manga was first released in August of 2001 in Japan's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine. New Japanese chapters are featured weekly in the same magazine; 260 chapters have been released as of January 26, 2007. The manga has been compiled into 25 tankobon by Shueish. The first volume of the manga has sold over 1.25 million copies in Japan, and the series as a whole has sold over 34 million volumes. In 2005, Bleach was awarded the prestigious Shogakukan Manga Award in the shonen category." [more]
