In my late teens early twenties my love for anime was growing rapidly, this was mostly due to the fact that it was not till this time that we had the internet at home. I watched heaps of anime on tv with Tonnami and Adult Swim at the time and enjoyed many of the shows on there. With everything I watched and enjoyed Bleach should have been another series I would love.
It had an interesting premise and cool story and a lot of the side characters were interesting. There was just one thing stopping me from getting completely invested in the series. Over the years because I have seen how much friends have enjoyed the series I have attempted to go back and watch the show but again the same thing was holding me back. Two things actually, two of the main characters.
I took an immediately dislike to both Ichigo and Rukia from the series. To be honest I really don’t know why I have such a dislike for the two, there is just something about the both of them I don’t like. This lack of attachment I have to these two made it very hard for me to find any investment in the series and so I just stopped watching it.
This dislike and lack of interest gets on my nerves because I feel like I have missed out on a fun story.
