Now, there are probably as many answers to the question of what it means to love anime as there are people who claim to love it.

Bleach Live Action Movie Review: I Loved The Anime But What About This?

Bleach Live Action

But just like with video game adaptations, while there are certainly a fair share of truly dreadful ones to be found there are also adaptations that have worked and given a fairly satisfying watch. So the question becomes whether or not Bleach survived this adaptation?

Tuesday's Top 5

Now I would like to note that I don't think I'd actually do a good job or rewriting the story, but there are anime that I really like to see go in a slightly different direction than what they did.

Friday’s Feature: Let’s Try Something Different and Build A Harem

I'm going to thank Cactus Matt from Anime Q & A for throwing this tag my way.
