Bleach: a shōnen renowned for its katana fighting
Welcome to the world of Bleach, a place for lovers of epic battles, spirits and katana duels. In this manga written and illustrated by Tite Kubo, you follow a young boy named Ichigo Kurosaki. The story takes place in an alternative reality where humans are protected by shinigami (soul reapers) who hunt bad souls.
Everything changes the day young Ichigo meets Rukia Kuchiki. There follows an epic adventure where our protagonist will evolve to become, in turn, a powerful shinigami. The katana plays a very important role in this anime, because it is thanks to it that the shinigami can protect the humans. It is the extension of their arm and the catalyst of their power.
The fans are numerous to say that Bleach is an exceptional manga so much its drawings and its animations are of great qualities. They let the emotios of the characters shine through and immerse you in a parallel universe.
Zanpakutō, the sword of the shinigami
Zanpakutō (斬魄刀) is the name given to the sword of a shinigami. It is a type of spiritual weapon used by Shinigami to fight the spirits and demons that threaten humanity. These katanas are unique to their owners and each of them has a spirit that inhabits the weapon. The spirit of the Zanpakutō can be used by the Shinigami for combat or for other purposes. A shinigami and his katana can use 2 types of powers: shikai (the weapon takes on its true form as a mace, trident, or spear) and bankai (the weapon adopts an alternate form that allows for the use of powerful magical powers).
The soul that inhabits the katana is a reflection of its owner. Having a strong relationship with the weapon allows a shinigami to be powerful and strong in battle. Sometimes this relationship can be disturbed, as the soul may not be able to tolerate certain traits of its owner. On the other hand, a shinigami may not appreciate some of its traits or flaws. In this case, the harmony between the weapon and its owner is disturbed and hinders the character's progression and evolution.
This is why it is so important to maintain a healthy relationship with your katana. It is of course necessary to take care of it, but above all to know oneself and to accept oneself as one is. Bleach offers a beautiful lesson on self-acceptance and the ability to evolve and become a better version of yourself.
