Season one episode four, called "And Your Bird Can Speak" is another good Bleach episode.
In the opening scene(s) we get to meet Chad, as well as a little bird (A cockateil) Chad adopts. It seems that this little bird brings bad luck to all of its owners. With good reason. The bird is actually harboring the soul of a little boy! And the boy is being chased by a very nasty hollow.
I really like the way the character Chad is portrayed. He is a very big and tall teenager, though he looks big enough (and old enough) to be an NFL linebacker.
We also get to see Ichigo dad's clinic, where Chad is admitted when he becomes injured protecting himself and the bird from the Hollow.
Through all this, Chad is basically unable to see the Hollow attacking him. All he can usually see is a blur, if that at all. He has to depend on pure instinct and the direction of others who can see spirits.
I enjoyed the camera shots in this episode. It's a style of shooting that is prevalent throughout the Bleach anime series. Also the voice acting is solid. The English dubbed version voice actor for Chad, Jamieson Price does a good voice-acting job in this episode.
Job well done!
