The Big Three once dominated Shonen Jump at one point. Three of the most well-known manga ever were Naruto, Bleach, and One Piece, with fans waiting to acquire copies of the publication to keep up with their favorite shows. Compared to One Piece, which is still running strong and shows no signs of quitting just yet, Naruto ended its run on a pretty high note.
Bleach, meanwhile, took a totally different path. As time went on, the manga’s popularity began to decline, and Kubo appears to have cheated for the final arc of Bleach to wrap up the narrative. Many individuals have felt forced to assert that Bleach was never a good series, which is so far from the reality because of the depressing note on which Bleach concluded.
The fact of the matter is that Bleach was one of the best shows when it was at its height, propelled further by a fantastic anime adaptation. Here are some of the most famous quotes from Bleach dialogue that fans still use today to help put this remark into perspective.
While Shunsui might not have as much screen time in Bleach as he deserves, he always ends up making his presence palpable in whatever scene he’s in.
His calm yet wise demeanor is instantly apparent, and this quote personifies what Shunsui’s character is all about.
Many people believe Ichigo to be a very stereotypical hero, yet this opinion does a great disservice to a character that actually has a lot of brilliant moments that help to develop his personality. Lines like this are an excellent example of how this orange-haired shinigami likes to put himself in an opponent’s head with his remarks.
One of the most battle-thirsty fighters in the entire series, Kenpachi is a character that fans can’t help but love due to the sheer insanity of this character.
His zeal for battle is so intense that pretty much everything he says in the heat of a confrontation is meant to hammer in one point — fights are always to the death when Kenpachi is involved.
Byakuya is the last major hurdle that Ichigo needs to clear in a bid to save Rukia. However, it’s clear from the get-go that Ichigo will need to bring out his A-game in order to get the better of this fearsome.
This line of dialogue enough showcases exactly why this is the case. No matter how good an opponent’s defense might be, Byakuya will always find a way to pierce this guard with his pinpoint attacks.
When Renji first appears in Bleach, he might seem like your typical goofball, but as the series progresses, the audience develops to love him for his lovable demeanor.
He surely adds a lot more to his character by being a brave warrior who always upholds the law in combat.
The idea of a protagonist in a shonen anime losing his fights is hard to fathom, and it’s a great thing that one of Ichigo’s strongest qualities is the fact that he’s extremely headstrong and never gives up on anything.
Whenever Ichigo gets into a fight, the thirst for battle isn’t what drives him forward — rather, it’s the need to win a confrontation so that Ichigo can take another step forward to this goal.
Rukia is the first shinigami we’re introduced to in Bleach and it goes without saying that fans were more than infatuated by this brilliant character.
While she might seem silly at times, there’s no denying the fact that Rukia has a strong heart, and will always place the interests of others before her own.
Ichigo was always an individual driven towards a particular goal or purpose. Being aimless and just doing things for the sake of it was never his style, and understandably so.
His need to fulfill a higher purpose is prevalent in every action he strives to accomplish, including — but not limited to — fighting.
Aizen might’ve redeemed himself with his very last action in the final moments of Bleach, but there’s no denying the fact that he was one of the evilest yet hypnotic antagonists in shonen history.
His ideologies were morally corrupt no matter how anyone might spin it… but it was still understandable in some twisted manner.
One of the most complex characters in the entire series, Gin’s terrible past significantly influences who he is today.
Gin was forced down a dark path by the circumstances surrounding him, but he never did so because he was naturally evil, which cannot be stated for the next figure on this list.
