Today I am grateful to the creators of Bleach, a Japanese anime series. I’m on Season Five now, and although it has its ups and downs, generally it is much more entertaining and inventive than most Western films, TV series or cartoons. It is packed with hundreds of concepts, juts one of which would be enough to make a Western film. Take, for example, a magical fish that perpetually creates new dimensions for itself to move in any direction at will: including underground and in the air!
