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.

Yoruichi Shiouin is one of my favorites in BLEACH

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.

@FoxxFireArt:

You are a great character specialist. The teams and I are mostly story arcs specialist. I know we need get back to the characters. Bleach has straightforward story arcs than Sket Dance. You keep reminding me to streamline the characters' story arcs. I just need more time.

Congrats on making the Bleach women happy! I really love your section, Ladies of Bleach. Oh, they're starting the new arc? I need to get back and watch Bleach. I left after Aizen and Hueco Mundo Arc over. Though, I won't have time to watch Bleach with the other wiki projects.

One question:

Tier Halibel

Tier Halibel is the Tercera Espada, the third most powerful Arrancar in Sōsuke Aizen's army elite, the Espada.

Why is her name, Tier, instead of Tia?

@takashichea:

From what I've found, the US version calls her Tier Halibel. The BLEACH fan wikia mentions that VIZ spells her name as Tier Halibel. I'd like to confirm this off their official website, but they're about as competent about updating their website as they are at publishing. That site still only lists the five main cast, and everyone else is still "coming soon".

Though, in the Japanese version they spell the name in English as Harribel.

The anime is finally back to the canon arc. BLEACH has a really bad habit of putting filler in the middle of canon stuff.

I really wish Tatsuki had a bigger role.

EDIT:

I've confirmed Tier Halibel on HULU.
