    Ok, I just finished the Soul Society arc, and I noticed that not a single person actually dies. Sure, they get wounded and bloody and all, but they always recover... and fast too. For example, Renji, gets cut to shreads his captain, but somehow survives (though 4th captain saves him, I suppose). But Ganju most likely would have been killed by the same move, seeing that their power differs so much. Not that I would any of the main characters to die, but you get my drift.

    Because the arc wasn't totally serious. Think about it. There wasn't a ton of willpower because everyone didn't totally agree with the execution.

    And another thing, where exactly do you go when you die in Soul Society? Like the sixth captain's wife... what the hell?

    Well, you are reborn on Earth, of course :amuse ! Remember it's a cycle, that needs to be balanced. You die on Earth, you go to the SS. You die in SS, you are reincarnated.

    Kubo's a pussy when it comes to killing characters.

    He'd rather have them do a 180 in their personality.

    Kubo Tite lacks the certain round male genitals that are necessary to kill off a character.

    Don't complain about characters not dying until you've watched One Piece. :notrust
    Until then, you have no right to complain about Bleach being guilty of this.

    That's nothing. And it's fine.

    Because it's a LOT better than stupid "Marvel Deaths".

    Its kinda hard to die when one has an evil, psychotic side of themself that comes out and beats the crap out of whatever managed to nearly kill him.

    Oh they do die. It's just that:

    if you're the main characters, you don't die.
    if you're the secondary characters, you don't die.
    if you're the tertiary characters, you don't die.
    *repeat this 100 times and you'll get your first character death.*

    But still, death isn't really an important factor in Bleach. It takes away some suspense but hey, I watch this series because it really entertains me.

    I just realized something: If Ichigo was killed by Byakuya, wouldn't he just get right back up as a dead soul?

    Byakuya: Impossible....I killed you!
    Ichigo: Yeah, well where was I gonna go, Detroit?

    I'm guessing you have never seen Full Metal Alchamist. Great anime, I would suggest viewing it when you get a chance.
    I wouldnt wanna spoil how many of the main characters or secondary characters die, but you would be suprised. Especially at the end of the anime.
    But yeah main characters and even other secondary characters do die in animes. FMA is one of the named few, I have seen others.

    Only reason FMA chars die is because it was a short series. The one non-main char died, wasn't really that important.

    You know, that was actually going through my head this morning. Really. The only difference would be that Ichigo would be teleported to Rukongai.


    Anyway, yah. Kubo Tite lacks... balls. There sure is a hella lotta more blood though. Still. There are only a few characters that I would actually want to die. The rest are made of awsome and win. Though I suppose Aizen will die at some point.

    Spoiler:
    Just 1 person died in FMA??? You must have not seen the end of it. Edward dies on the last episode. He maybe went to the other side..but he still died. Pay a bit more attention to the anime next time. :p

    Ichigo is was in his spirit (Shinigami) form, so I think he would get reincarnated in the real world instead. But what about Chad, Inoue and Ishida? As far as I remember they had not been "transformated into souls".

    And I'm guessing one of them is Lt. Colonel Mäes Hughes?:amuse

    But I was talking solely about Bleach.
