    • Kubo-sensei: I never imagined when I started writing Bleach that it would eventually be published in the U.S., so I'm really glad that American readers have taken to it and enjoyed my work. Please continue to support Bleach. I've also been told that I should visit America someday.

    • Kubo-sensei: (talking about his hit manga Bleach) I'm the type who worries about the difference between the season in the story and season in reality. This series [Bleach] started in the summer [for the manga version]. At that time, the season in the story was the month of May. That difference has always weighed on my mind. With this volume [3], the main character Ichigo's introduction ends at last. The stage is June. Unexpectedly nice timing. If you can, please read it [volume 3 of the manga] on a rainy evening.

  • a good manga artist with some issues.

    The creator of bleach and one of my favories. kubo is one hell of a artist every panel he draws has such beautiful detail. his artstlye is very addictive and the his astonishing art will captivate you to no end the shading and lighting he puts such emphasis into his art its almost astonishing. he is one of my favorite manga artist . plus his weird innovative storytelling is going to instantly draw you into the storyline itself. He is quite the perfectionist usually serious about creating his manga. now heres where I have a problem with him heat times drags his storyline for to long and also sometimes he recycles the same plot formula over and over again it gets annoying and often neglects to have plot advancement in his story lines and like I said before he drags out the fights which get in the way of the plot itself. Like must manga artist he executes his drama very well and I like the way he uses .....fanservice`!! that pretty much helps bleach distinguish itself from anime and manga in general not the best but its good enough and I love his veiw of the afterlife really kind of like a japan version of the afterlife its still and his references to ancient Japanese mythology . really this man is a excellent manga artist with a unique vision of the afterlife.moreless
