    It's in the title.

    Also, what about that moment made you fall in love with Bleach? Was it the music? Was it the characters involved? The atmosphere?

    For me, in episode 17, I was hooked when Ichigo first truly released his reiatsu against Renji and had him up against the ropes. The music, lighting, atmosphere, and Byakuya's passiveness/apathy all instantly made me a Bleachtard.

    When I started watching Bleach, it didn't start right from the first episode. I started when Ichi & co. were already in Soul Society. So I was hooked right away. I went back later on after having been so hooked and wanting to see every episode.

    If I started from the beginning, I would have been hooked when Ishida is introduced. The whole contest plus Ichi cuttin a Menos was real nice.

    The first opening, Asterisk. Shallow, I know, but there you have it. It was so cool I had to see more. I stayed for Rukia and Byakuya.

    EDIT: And Don Kanonji. Can't forget that. XD

    When Renji askd Ichigo to save Rukia, after he was defeated by Ichigo. Then Ichigo said, "I'll definitely save Rukia so this voice of mine won't end up broken." (something about barking at the stars).. plus, it's made very artistically.. :)

    I've been hooked since I saw the first part of the first chapter in the American Shonen Jump. :laugh

    I thought it was cool and I thought the style was interesting. And I still think that. The anime was just kind of an added bonus.

    I had always been interested in Bleach right from volume 1. But I really got hooked during the 1st captain meeting. Yea, I like the assembly of powerful characters.

    Well, he was the first Bleach character I ever saw, even before knowing the manga and anime, and I thought "damn, he looks badass."

    However, the character that left the biggest immediate impact on me was Gin. He was the first Bleach character I saw in motion (I think Raikiri had the Shinsou shooting motion in his avy back then).

    Let me guess, you saw the cover for the volume "The Undead"?

    That was one of the most badass Zaraki ever drawn.

    MISSION COMPLETE!:bgai

    That's another thing that helped me get hooked, the comedy elements.
    I don't really do manga. :/

    The only reason that I started on the manga is because the Library has more activity.

    For me, it was when I first saw a pic of Hitsugaya (which was here on someone's sig, I think). I've been hooked since then.

    i liked the the first 15 or so epsiodes, had a good mix, it got a little slow because i thought it was just going to be about killing a new hollow every episode, but found out from a friend there would be a long arc soon. The scenes that stand out were when Ichigo wounded that menos Grande.

    I like many others got completely hooked once renji/bykuya showed up.
