The reason this anime got a high score is because of its high standards for the genres it choose to portray. Bleach is an action adventure and comedy anime. It's about a high school student who meets a girl that only rare people can see because she is from another plane called the soul society. In a twist of events this teenage boy gets a powers of a soul reaper but as they say in subs shinigami which means god of death. In this anime its full of hardcore action good comedy and an epic adventure with an amazing storyline.
This is a review though my opinion try it yourself if your intrested in these genres
