Bleach Vol. 58 (Viz)


Rating: 3/5 – Quite a few reveals in this Volume.

Let’s start off with an obvious statement – 58 volumes on ANY series is a really amazing thing. Sure, there are series that have run much longer, but that doesn’t diminish what Bleach has accomplished. Having said that, it can be difficult to review a series that has run this long, as the people who have read up to this point are in it for the long haul anyhow, and don’t really care what I might be able to say. Does it matter if I say this volume is worth your money or not? Will that truly stop you or encourage you from buying it?

Okay, what if I told you there’s a hot springs scene in this volume? Albeit a brief one, and not what you’re probably hoping for, but there it is. Beyond that, Ichigo continues his work with the Soul Society as they square off against the Vandenreich. With the apparent fall of Yhwach, there’s light at the end of the tunnel…maybe. Without revealing too much, there’s quite a few things revealed in this particular volume.

Kubo’s ever-growing cast of characters continues to increase with each new chapter. Perhaps that’s what’s kept the series as fresh and beloved as it’s been over the years. Then again, it could just be that it’s a compelling narrative and Ichigo has yet to get boring. Whatever the case, this volume is not a jumping on point for new readers, but that really ought to be obvious. Go back and read the other 57 volumes. We’ll wait here.
