Product Description

Bleach, Vol. 5 (DVD)

As the fantasy-adventure Bleach approaches the end of its first season, Ichigo faces his greatest challenge. Defeated by supernatural assassin Renji Abarai, he watches Rukia return to the Soul Society, knowing she will be executed for sharing her powers with a human. Urahara, a.k.a. "Hat and Clogs Guy," tells Ichigo it may be possible to save Rukia, and begins a grueling training regimen for the orange-haired teen-ager. As Ichigo learns to unleash his latent powers, Chad and Ohime prepare to accompany him under the tutelage of Yoruichi, Urahara's talking cat. Although he's the sworn enemy of all Soul Hunters, Ishida also prepares to join the rescue. Some of the lessons backfire, providing slapstick comedy to balance the action. At the end of episode 20, Urahara constructs an inter-dimensional portal that will link Earth to the Soul Society for seven minutes: can the four high school students save Rukia and return in time? (Rated Teen, suitable for ages 13 and older: violence, grotesque imagery) --Charles Solomon

5.0 out of 5 stars To the Soul Society July 15, 2009
The Soul Reapers have finally come for Rukia -- and they aren't happy, at all.

That's the beginning of a shocking twist ending for the first season adapted from Tite Kubo's anime, "Bleach Volume 5." These four episodes shift suddenly from a series of Hollow-of-the-week standalone arcs and episodes to something that is obviously much larger than just Ichigo Kurosaki. And it also gels together the main cast of the series into a little fighting unit.

Ichigo gets a nasty surprise when he clashes with Renji, and discovers that the Soul Reaper lieutenant has a power and ability that Ichigo hasn't gained yet. But he's starting to gain the upper hand when the aloof Byakuya Kuchiki steps in -- and first slices Ichigo's blade off, then slashes his chest, destroys his Soul Reaper powers, and leaves him to die in the rain. Only Rukia's intervention keeps Ichigo from being murdered on the spot.

But he's unexpectedly rescued by Urahara, who offers to help him regain his powers so he can save Rukia. Unfortunately the training turns out to be far worse than Ichigo expected -- he's chased by the freaky little girl Ururu, forced to duel with Urahara with a stump of a sword, and thrown into a vast pit with his Soul Chain severed (meaning he'll turn into a Hollow unless he becomes a Soul Reaper). Only by accessing his secret inner powers will he be able to survive... and set off to rescue Rukia.

In the meantime, the talking cat Yoruichi starts training Chad and Orihime in their newfound powers, so they can accompany Ichigo; Uryu has started a solitary training regimen as well. And in the Soul Society, Rukia receives some shocking news about her sentence....

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice Arc June 19, 2008
Continuing to be a very fun story arc, this volume moves us into very interesting places and settings. With a very solid lead in completed, this story arc is going to be very interesting to watch as Ichigo and his team move into the next phase. Fun to watch this volume keeps the series moving in the right direction.
