@AgentJ: heh....action in a manga doesn't work for me. The anime is about the only way I can enjoy the action. For a manga I actually want story, which as we have both pointed out is not the strong point for bleach.
I am not much of a shonen fan though
Fair enough. I'd hope you give Air Gear (and maybe Eyeshield 21) a chance though. They are the exceptions to the Shonen story rule.
