Tite Kubo, Bleach: Memories in the Rain (Viz, 2002)

Memories in the Rain shows why Bleach is such a well-loved and long-running series. Kubo completely shifts gears here and pulls it off with aplomb. While there's still a good deal of action to be found, the core of this volume is Ichigo at his mother's graveside, contemplating her death and his part in it. Kubo does reflective as easily as he does action, and there's some real emotion to be found in these pages. Strongest volume in the series so far. ****

This volume of Bleach follows Ichigo as he remembers his mother and the circumstances behind her death. Eventually, a hollow shows up to wreck Ichigo's day of mourning, yet this hollow seems to have a direct connection to Ichigo's mother's death, and this is one connection Ichigo can't forgive. Along the way, we are introduced to Kon, the teddy bear body of the mod soul introduced in the previous volume. And Orihime and Tatsuki, Ichigo's classmates, discuss the events surrounding Ichigo's mother's death.

Most of this volume is back story and the fighting of the same creature, so it lost a little of the speed that was introduced in the first volume. But this was one of those inevitable slow-downs, as the events in this volume are important in making the characters more lovable, especially Ichigo. Seeing him as a cry-baby youngster and seeing the change that happened because of his mother's death really solidifies his tough-guy attitude, which is really a defense mechanism to keep people away from him and out of danger. This will become obvious to you once you read this volume (and I assure you, this isn't a spoiler as none of this is mentioned).

Still, even though this volume slowed a bit I still have to recommend it, mainly because of the ending cliff-hanger, as it appears to introduce a true antagonistic force. Plus, the art is still the same and comedy, when it's there, is enough to smile at, even if most of it is unoriginal.

In this volume of *Bleach*, things took a turn for the more dramatic, and more serious, as the story changed tone dramatically. This is because three things occurred. First off, we learned some more of Ichigo's back-story, and that of his family. This gave him more of a human face so that he is somewhat relatable. The second and third changes are that it seemed this volume abandoned the "monster of the week" formula for a sustained story arc and Ichigo loses a fight.

What I mean to say isn't that *Bleach* didn't have story-arcs before now, because it did. But they were short and, other than some small threads here and there to keep the story going, they weren't much related to each other. That all changed with this story which, as of this volume, still isn't really over.

The other difference is that things are more serious for Ichigo. He loses a fight with a Hollow. While Rukia tries to argue in text that it was a victory because he survived a Hollow that has been around for many decades and is hugely powerful and experienced and the Hollow didn't eat anyone, it still is a loss in general for our Soul Reaper. You see, Ichigo barely survived while the Hollow was in much better shape than he was.

So yeah, it was the Hollow's win. For explanation, it was sort of a bit like the scenario common to media where the good guy has to lose to teach him not to be so careless. Like on *Arrow* season one when the Dark Archer kicked Ollie's ass, or other scenarios where the hero loses, but manages to eke out at least survival or some other partial victory.

What I liked about this is that the author emerged here from more simple, safer story-telling to something more ambitious.

Bleach is one of the most popular shonen in Japan. And with good reason. I was first introduced to the anime series in 2006 by a friend. I decided to watch it online and was hooked. In a matter of days I had blown thru all the current episodes. I was addicted. So addicted in fact that I decided to start reading chapters online to find out what happened next. If I was just addicted at first I just became obsessed. The manga was much more intense than the anime, as I found out, and I just couldn't get enough of it. I lived to read the new scanlation week to week for all these years and still do. I figured if I enjoyed the series this much I might as well just start buying the series. I had acquired several from my brother who had gone and bought them. Now I'm just filling in the blanks and I'm going to keep going until I have every last one! I could read these over and over (I have already)!

If you haven't read the manga yet and are thinking about it, stop thinking and start doing! There is a reason this series is so wildly popular! It has most elements a shonen should: humor, action, awesome and intricate character design, an amazing story line... did I mention humor? In my own opinion, the manga is far better than the anime series and is more than worth having around.

A Kid's Review on June 21, 2008
Format: Paperback
Well, this is the third volume of Tite Kubo's Manga, "Bleach." It was one of my favorite volumes so far! It says a lot about Ichigo's past, including what happened to his mother. There are of course many comedic moments, as well as some great fight scenes. But, this volume is mostly explaining Ichigo's past, so, if you're looking for something with just an all-out battle from cover to cover, this is not for you. It does have an awesome fight scene, but it doesn't engulf the whole book. It has a very good plot, and I highly recommend it! But, it is moslty aimed at boys around 12-15, (even though I'm a girl) so, if you're an adult who likes more adult manga you wouldn't like it. I hope I helped you make a good selection for your manga! And, if you do order this, I'm sure you'll enjoy it as much as I did!
