♥ No Newbie Intro Posts No need to post just to say hi or categorize yourself as "new." When you're in, you're in. Welcome!
♥ No Icons, Fanwork, Personal Requests, or Non-discussion Q&A There are other communities that welcome these types: - Icons = bleach_icons - Fanwork = kurosaki_clinic - Requests and Non-discussion Q&A = bleach_fact Note: Role-Playing Game advertisements can be found at bleach_theatre and there is a monthly ad post arranged through that community. As such, RPG ads that do not go through this method are deleted.
♥ Think before you Post Before posting, ask yourself: 1. Has this been posted before? 2. Is the post simply a way to rant and vent frustration? If your answers to both are No then go for it.
♥ Spoilers = LJ-Cut Keep spoilers behind an lj-cut with warnings please.
♥ When in doubt, ask your mod Got a question? Send a message to the mod! :) Posts that deviate from the rules will most likely be deleted. Sorry about that.
What is Bleach? A young man who can see spirits of the dead happens to be a Hollow-bashing Part-time Shinigami. Wackiness, stylish art, and epic battles ensue. Bleach is currently running in Shonen Jump, Japan's best-selling weekly manga publisher. Off-shoots include a TV series, a radio show, rock musicals, and drama CDs.
Viz is currently publishing Bleach in English.
What is Soul Society about? This is a place to talk about Bleach (i.e. links, rumors, text translations, speculations). Posts about Kubo Tite and any of his previous works, like Zombie Powder, are cool too.
Translations I cannot speak for the translators who contribute to this community, but I do ask that everyone treat them respectfully and do not use anything without the translator's permission.
Sister Communities: bleach_theatre is a place to advertise for Bleach Roleplaying Games. kurosaki_clinic is a place to share Bleach fanwork (fanart, layouts, fanfiction, etc.) bleach_icons is a place to share Bleach lj icons. XD bleach_fact is a place to get your Bleach questions answered, as well as for personal requests for images, old raws, anime eps, etc. If you have a question that will not involve a long discussion and can be easily answered - Bleach Fact is the place to ask. all_for_bleach is also a general bleach community of a slightly different style than s_s. rukongai is the Spanish-speaking Bleach Fan Community.
