Anime Description: Bleach

He may look older than he is, and he may also seem like your average student with a bad attitude, but you can rest assured that fifteen year old Ichigo "Strawberry" Kurosaki is far from normal. You see, one day a Soul Reaper (Shinigami, or "death god") named Rukia Kuchiki appeared in Ichigo's town. Only after Ichigo's family is attacked by a creature known as a Hollow does Ichigo believe Rukia is actually a Shinigami.

Rukia gives her power to Ichigo so he could fight for her. Many souls walk the Earth when they do not pass on to heaven (known as soul society in this anime). It has been the job of death gods to send these souls to soul society either through a ritual, or by killing a Hollow.

Anyway, taking Rukia's powers and becoming a death god was never on Ichigo's to-do list, but somehow things don't always turn out like we expect. Now Ichigo must fight the Hollows for Rukia until her powers return so she can go back to soul society... except this all goes a little different than expected... so go see for yourself what happens.

I would rate this with an R rating, but not due to language. It is because it has so much violence.

Note: Oddly enough, they even made a musical out of this series.

Anime Description: Bleach

Ichigo Kurosaki is a 15 year old with a gift. He has the ability to see ghosts and spirits, and uses it to help the dead with unfinished business. One day, Ichigo meets a Shinigami (Grim Reaper) named Rukia Kuchiki (who is also a member of the mysterious Soul Society) and passes on her powers onto Ichigo in order to save his family.

As Rukia gains a more human form, they discover the supernatural threat of the Hollows, spirits that suck the souls from the living. Together, they solve different cases involving different spirits and the cause of the Hollow's arrival. However, Rukia is punished for disobeying the rules of the Soul Society. Eventually after saving Rukia, Ichigo becomes a full-fledged member of the Soul Society and thus begins their mission to hunt town and terminate the Hollows.

After coming back from the Soul Society, Ichigo and friends (without Rukia) meet and are attacked by Nova, Rinrin, and Cloud, three other Mod-souls created by Kisuke Urahara (though they don't know this). After getting them into stuffed animal form, they meet Bountos (or vampires or something like that). They use dolls (like Shinigamis' zanpakutos) to defeat their enemies and they turn to ashes after they're killed.
