I've decided to use some of the legitimate online streaming services to catch up on anime I've been meaning to see for years.  Today, I started watching Bleach on Joost.  I've seen several episodes of Bleach fansubbed - specifically during the time Rukia was prisoner.  I never saw the beginning of the show, though, and this seems like as good a time to start as any.  

Episode 1 was what I expected.  They introduced Ichigo and his family, as well as Rukia, the first Soul Reaper to appear in the series.  I'm not going to summarize the plots of the shows I watch.  You can find that info all over the place (probably right here at Anime Vice).  I'll just comment on what I found notable.  For this episode, it's just a strong opening to the show.  They don't waste any time getting to the action.  I liked the quick intros of all the relevant characters, and I was pleased that Ichigo's first battle didn't drag into a second episode.  It was just enough to keep me coming back for more.

I also enjoyed seeing Rukia's girly side when she showed Ichigo her drawings to explain Wholes and Hollow's.  Drawing on Ichigo's face made me laugh.
