Some minor spoilers in the timeline, so I won't place it on the blog listing (or the RSS feed), but I will voice my current concern. Minor spoilers below if you haven't watched at all.
The series started out with the interplay between Rukia and Ichigo really driving the show. Rukia is a shinigami (death god), forced to live in the human world and pretend to be a highschool student since her powers have been (mostly) transfered to Ichigo. You got some neat stuff with Ichigo trying to balance school with being a substitute Shinigami. Cool. (Spoilers below.)
