An updated official character databook. A very informative book, with some extra Bleach chapters never released in public during chapter publications. Also contains secrets revealed by Tite Kubo during the creation of this book.

"Bleach: The Official Character Book 2' is a wonderful resource guide and reference for a great price! March 13 2012
By Dennis A. Amith - Published on
Format: Paperback
"Bleach", is currently of the most successful Japanese animation and manga series in Japan. It's popularity reaches worldwide and since 2001, many fans have clamored for it's action-based storyline featured on television, manga series, films and video games.

And it's all thanks to series creator, writer and illustrator Noriaki "Tite" Kubo.

For those who have watched this series since the very beginning, they have watched the amount of characters grow from five characters to a number that I have no idea how many there are at this point. And aside from the characters, they also have incredible attacks and abilities that they are mentioned so much during the series, fans may easily have remembered them but to tell you the truth, there are so many, it's hard to keep in track unless you are a dedicated hardcore fan.

But fear not, in 2008, Viz Media released "Bleach: The Official Character Book" which not only gave information and trivia regarding its characters, fans also got to read a summary of what had taken place in the series so far.

Since 2008, there have been an explosion in terms of how many characters were featured on the manga and anime series.

And so, it is time once again for a new "Bleach: The Official Character Book 2" as many soul reapers and antagonists such as the Arrancars and characters such as the Visoreds have been featured on the anime and manga series as well as their special abilities. Things are becoming a bit more difficult to keep in track, so for many fans, the release of this book will be a blessing.

Here is what is featured in "Bleach: The Official Character Book 2":

Weekly Jump Covers
Bonus Poster
Chapter 1: World of the Living Character Correlation and Diagram Index and World of the Living Character Profiles
Chapter 2: Detailed Explanation of Soul Reapers, Soul Reaper Character Correlation Diagram & Index, Soul Reaper Character Profiles
Chapter 3: Detailed Explanation of Arrancars, Arrancar Character Correlation Diagram & Index, Arrancar Character Profiles
Chapter 4: Visored Character Correlation Diagram and Index, Detailed Explanation of the Visored, Visored Character Profiles
Chapter 4B: Turn back the Pendulum, Comprehensive Thirteen Court Guard Companies Chart
Chapter 5: Historical Facts, Terms Explanation Vol. 2, Tite Kubo Interview, Extra Scene, The Next Beginning, Postscript
Chapter Kon: Kon Introduction, Kon Column #1-#3


Full of detailed information for a wonderful price, if you are a fan of Tite Kubo's "Bleach", "Bleach: The Official Character Book 2' is a wonderful resource guide and reference.

The character profiles for this second volume showcase profile data of a character, their Zanpaku-to (a special ability that the user and their sword can unleash). There are humor for example Tite Kubo's reference to Rangiku's "watermelons" and there are experienced events (brief summaries) that were featured in the series in regard to that character.

For me, my confusion has always been in regards to the Arrancar and Visoreds. There are so many of them and it's got to the point where I am confused. So, I was happy that we have the character references to each of these new characters that were featured.

It's important to note that if you owned the first book, you definitely want to keep it as the antagonists from the earlier storyline are featured in that book. Also, the first book goes into detailed information about Karakura and the structure of the Soul Society.

In short, for anyone who wants to "Bleach" experience and wants to know every detail of every featured character up to the Arrancar/Visored storyline will want to own this book.

Highly recommended for "Bleach" fans!

A must for fans of BLEACH! Aug. 26 2012
By Travis - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a must for any bleach fan. This cover from where the first book left off until Aizen's invasion of the world of the living! There are plenty of facts and explanations of terms that a true bleach fan is dying to know! I absolutely love this and cannot wait for the third book to come out in English. It would be wise to buy and read book one first, SOULS...The Official Charactor Book, but if you have a good grasp of the manga or show, you can hop in at the second book, MASKED! I give this 5 stars, A +++

Bleach Masked Charecture Book 2 review Jan. 15 2013
By Lela Essary - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I loved this book so much!! This is the best Bleach Charecture Book ever! I loved how they went in and explained so much about the Espadas, though i didnt like how they censored Stark, Barragons, and Hallibels stuff, but other then that it was amazing! I loved the pictures at the front of the book, my favorite was the Winter Picture! I just loved how they had 4 hole pages dedicated to my favorite charecture, Grimmjow Jaggerjack!
