The Women of BLEACH Get the Spotlight!!
I've been working on a rather extensive wiki updating project. Normally, I focus on manga or animes by the story arcs. This time I wanted to focus on characters. Too many character pages without enough information in the profiles. I often like to try and spotlight interesting female characters. Male leads get more than enough spotlight. I do this to try and show some female readers that there are some really interesting and powerful women in manga. People will come to series when you let then know they're welcome.
I decided to focus on the series BLEACH. Now, there are a lot more women characters in the series that is on this list. I worked on characters who played the biggest roles in the story. Other women in this series were either small roles or filler characters. I went through each and every one to explain the character's origin, creation, character evolution, major story arcs, and their powers. These character profiles will tell you who these characters are, and summarize what they've done in the entire series to date. I was very conscious to keep the story arcs condensed to be easy to read through.
I didn't do all the work on every single character pages, but I did the work on the large majority. I've marked the pages that I didn't do as much work on. Many of these pages were blank before I worked on them. These pages are more or less finished.
I hope you check some of them out. I'd like to hear your thoughts in the comments. Thanks.

Please mind that there could be quite a few typos in some of these profiles. I was doing a LOT of typing and little time for proofreading. I was more concentrating on getting the information in.
