I don't go into technical details about the quality of the DVD or the extras. Truth be told, outside of the trailers, I don't watch any DVD extras at all. I like the English dub because I don't want to spend the entire show squinting at subtitles. All I can say is that it's a show that needs to be enjoyed as it is. Don't try to read too much into it. It's an adventure story about young heroes, and it's filled with everything that it entails. Ichigo, Chad, Orihime and Uryu are headed to Soul to rescue Rukia. You know, from the first season I thought it was just going to open with a few episodes to get her back then on to something else. Boy was I wrong!
Season two has them in the afterworld, or Soul Society, trying to find and rescue their friend. The plot isn't as simple as that. The Soul Society's 13 guard squads are determined to stop them. Add to that a mystery and a potential traitor in the squad's midst had me on the edge of my seat. It's a complex storyline and they aren't afraid to delve into the personalities of all the characters --no matter how minor they might be. Leave it to Tite Kubo to lay out a fantastic story!
Parents: If you are opposed to cartoon bloodshed, then you probably should watch this first and see if the level of violence is acceptable to you. This isn't American television --it's not edited for content. The heroes get hurt. They bleed. And yes they fail. I actually prefer it because it's in a sense much more realistic than American cartoons which seem to gloss over that fact. Superman and Batman never bleed on Justice League --You ever notice that?
It's a really good show, and I enjoy it thoroughly. I don't really have anything negative to say about it. It's one of my favorite shows.
On the first disc, there are four extras. The first extra is "Production Art," which is nineteen pages of line art of the characters that appear on this disc. The second feature is "Manga Preview," which includes ads for Bleach and other Shonen Jump manga titles, as well as an ad for Shonen Jump magazine. The next feature is "Clean Ending," which is a textless version of the first closing theme that appears in this box set. The final extra on the disc is "Shonen Jump Home Video," which contains previews for Naruto, Hikaru no Go, and One Piece.
The second disc has production art, which is eighteen pages of line art of the characters, locations, and weapons that appear on this disc. The "Manga Preview" and the "Shonen Jump Home Video" extras are exactly the same as the features that appear on disc one. The "Clean Ending" on this disc is a textless version of the second ending that appears in this box set.
The production art of disc three is fifteen pages of line art of the characters that appear on this disc. The "Manga Preview" and the "Shonen Jump Home Video" extras are exactly the same as the features that appear on disc one. The "Clean Ending" has the same song as the ending that appears on disc two, but the animation is different.
The fourth disc has production art, which is fourteen pages of line art of the characters and weapons that appear on this disc. The "Manga Preview" highlights some different titles than the feature that appeared on the previous three discs. The "Shonen Jump Home Video" feature is exactly that same as what appeared on the previous three discs. The "Clean Ending" has the same song as discs two and three, but the animation is unique.
On the fifth disc, the production art consists of twenty pages of line art of the characters that appear on the disc. The "Manga Preview" is different from any of the manga previews that appeared on the previous four discs. There are two different endings in the "Clean Ending" feature. The first is the same song that appeared on discs two through four, but the animation is unique from the previous three discs it appeared on. The second clean ending is a textless version of the third ending song that appeared in this box set. The "Shonen Jump Home Video" feature on this disc includes previews for Bleach the Movie and Naruto the Movie. The final feature of this disc is "Bonus: Behind the Scenes of Bleach." This is a roughly twenty-one minute feature of interviews with some of the English dub cast (the voices for Rukia, Renji, Byakuya, and Hanataro are interviewed). This final feature is definitely the best bonus feature in the whole set.
While I knew to expect the repetition of bonus features on this set after seeing the first season box set, I was still a little disappointed. Like with the first season set, perhaps Viz Media should have considered putting the extras on only one or two of the discs to minimize the repetition. And I still wonder why textless versions of the opening aren't included as bonus features in either set. Even though I'm a little disappointed by the bonus features, I would still recommend this box set to anyone who is a fan of the Bleach anime series.
