Bleach Uncut: Box Set 3
The third season of the hit fantasy-adventure Bleach marks the conclusion of the story arc that began in "The Substitute" two seasons earlier. Orange-haired, hot-tempered Ichigo Kurosaki and his friends--Chad, Orihime, Ishida, and Master Yoruichi, the talking cat--pass through the inter-dimensional portal linking Earth to the Seireitei, the stronghold of the Soul Society. Although they’ve come to rescue Rukia from execution, the arrival of the teenagers precipitates a deadly civil war within the Soul Society. Amid the growing chaos, Yoruichi reveals she was a princess in the Seireitei before she fled to Earth. When she realizes Ichigo isn't strong enough to survive the impending battles, Yoruichi spirits him away. He must be able to achieve Bankai, the ultimate power over his Zanpak-tô sword, which he learns by dueling with Zangetsu, the spirit of the sword. Despite exhaustion and the wounds he's received, Ichigo fights with grim determination. While Ichigo trains, some of the Soul Society's most formidable officers join the teenagers, including Toshiro, the child-prodigy captain, the fantastically tattooed Renji, and the spiky-haired Kenpachi. Ichigo arrives just in time to save Rukia. Drawing on the grueling training he's just completed, Ichigo fends off the clouds of murderous blades summoned by Rukia's haughty brother Byakuya. During the battle, Ichigo begins to grow a half-mask that resembles the monstrous Hollows. Horrified, he rips it away and renews his attack. But Ichigo has no time to celebrate his narrow victory: he, his friends, Rukia, and the Soul Society Captains have all been used as pawns by an unscrupulous villain. Director Noriyuke Abe once again shifts from dramatic derring-do to broad comedy as he sets the stage for the next story arc. Ichigo's time in the Seireitei made him stronger--but is he strong enough for the adventures that await him? (Rated "Teen," suitable for ages 13 and older: violence, grotesque imagery, alcohol use, risqué humor) --Charles Solomon

Now that that is out of the way, the product came in very good packaging. It has a very nice matte finish with only tiny little scuffs on the corners as most box sets do. It came with some surprise items which were 2 unique character postcards. On the back sides of each disk holder, there is some great character artwork within the case. 5 disks in total.
I'm assuming that since your this far into the series you have probably seen it already and are looking to collect. Either way, my opinion on the series is that its good. Interesting story and I like all the characters.
The DVD case is enclosed in a very nice slipcase as well.
The statue of the mask that comes doesn't fit just right and took a little messing around with to make fit on the stand. The stand itself was surprisingly heavy. It felt like it was made of some kind of stone which I very much appreciated.
I highly recommend this product if you are looking to collect the series.
Even if you haven't seen the first two seasons this is probably worth your time and money.
Just don't do what I did and spend nearly forty dollars on it. Right now it's on sale for sixteen which is an excellent price. For the number of episodes and the fact you're getting a whole season I'd easily pay up to twenty-five bucks.
This season has some of the best character arcs in all of Bleach. Even better it has some of the best fight sequences as well.
While this is most definitely a shounen series, most of the female characters don't suffer from the typical bimboesque treatment girls and women seem to endure.
I'm not a huge fan of J-pop music or anime music in general. I'm more of a 70's rock person. But, even I have to admit most of the music during this season is pretty fantastic.
I'd highly recommend buying seasons 1 and 2 as well just so you get the full experience of how awesome this story arc and season really are, but if you only buy one, it should definitely be this one.
This first arc is truly the best and even if you don't watch any farther than this season, it ends at a good stopping place that will feel complete and be satisfying instead of empty and angry like so many other anime arcs seem to end.
This set includes the conclusion to the soul society ark and most of the bount ark which the bount ark itself is 30 episodes in total.
I admit when I watched bleach on tv I skipped pretty much all the fillers so I actually never watched this ark. Now that the series has cancelled I can go back and see the entire series fully.
This bount ark starts out really weak... With pointless episodes just to introduce the 3 new mod souls (which they are cannon) then it finnaly introduces the bounts aka vampires in the series. The show basically goes a certian magical index on us with the bounts having somewhat magical like abilites rather than what we are used to in bleach with other villians with sword abilities. I can see why people hate the fillers so much, this one isn't bad though since it doesn't cut into the middle of an ark like *cough* the hueco mundo ark (IDK how to spell it) were there was a bunch of fillers interrupting the cannon like every now and then. Still I want to see bleach revived for the final thousand blood war ark.... But Japan kind of gave up on bleach so.... Ya... Proboly never coming back.
Some of you might notice that viz is extremly slow with these bleach releases because they have to go back and remaster like 28 episodes per set, that takes a bit of time even though all they are really doing is cleaning the animation to be sharper and be more colorful.
I recommend to support bleach and buy all the blu-ray sets.
I am strictly going to talk about the Limited Collector's Hollow Mask which comes with this set, so you can decide if it is worth it the extra money. Someone smarter than me will probably post the picture, or I will if I can figure out how. It still warrants a description though, more than just a visual.
I am not usually one for "collectible knick knack" items found in limited edition sets, like figurines, etc. But this is just really, really cool.
The hollow mask is very high quality, seems like it's some type of material similar to ceramic--but very solidly molded (not delicate.) It is boldly painted, and brilliantly, is it a fragment of the mask (a "broken" mask piece) and comes with a display stand, the base of which is weighted and is the familiar substitute soul reaper badge.
It is not meant for cosplay, and the "broken" Hollow mask (it belongs to a certain character, and figures quite prominently in later seasons) is slightly smaller than the size of the dvd box set. (It comes packaged in its own box, which is shrink-wrapped with the dvd box set.) Again, I am not usually one for collectible items, but as a fan of the show, this was just one of the coolest possible bonus items. The inner anime geek in me is in love with it.

Then there are several episodes that introduce three new side characters who turn up for a while.
After that, the weakest arc in Bleach (in my opinion) begins. This is the first filler arc that was anime-original - the Bount. The new side characters end up being helpful in dealing with them. The Bount story concludes in the next collection, set 4. While I think this is a fairly weak arc, it has its moments, and I think it's worthwhile buying the sets for the canon episodes that are included. I don't like a lot of spoilers, so I'll leave it at that.
The filler episodes do reveal one important point about Ichigo that is canon, though they don't reveal the full truth here.
