Bleach Volume 23 DVD Review


Bleach Volume 23 DVD Review

You can purchase this DVD online today

Synopsis: Kariya and the Bounts arrive in the Soul Society and find themselves battling two Soul Reaper lieutenants, but the abundance of reishi in the Soul Society gives the Bounts a ready source of power, rendering them formidable opponents. Ichigo and friends arrive in the Soul Society, and when Rukia is injured in a fight, Ichigo follows her to the Kuchiki house, where he asks Byakuya to fight alongside him against the Bounts. Byakuya refuses and insists they leave it up to the 13 Court Guard Squads, but soon enough Byakuya finds himself in a one-on-one battle with Kariya. (Episodes 92-95)

Review: This is the 23rd volume in the Bleach series, released by Viz.  This single disc release includes episodes 92 through 95 of the series. These episodes take on a rather dark tone at times with some near death experiences and bloody sword fights, but there is time still for moments of humor in classic Bleach fashion.

This volume does include some great moments, but is mostly comprised of story and filler that is a build up to future action in the later Bleach volume releases.  This is a single disc release, which is my pet peve, but the Bleach series is really fantastic, and if we can't get boxed sets I'm happy they're at least consistantly and frequently releasing these volumes for the fans.

Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars
