Rock Musical Bleach

Rock Musical Bleach? Sounds crazy, doesn't it? But I'm not kidding, it really exists. While you (and also me at first) may not be able to imagine the zanpakuto-wielding baddy Ichigo Kurosaki singing and dancing, others have already been laughing their asses off watching him do just that. And yes, I also laughed my ass off while watching Rock Musical Bleach. It was so much fun. Why didn't I watch it sooner?!? :)

Rock Musical Bleach: Saien
For those of you who don't know, Rock Musical Bleach is a series of live shows that started in 2005 and ended in 2010. The ones that follow the main plotline of the Bleach anime series were (in correct order):

  • Rock Musical Bleach
  • Rock Musical Bleach: Saien
  • Rock Musical Bleach: The Dark of the Bleeding Moon
  • Rock Musical Bleach: No Clouds in the Blue Heavens
  • Rock Musical Bleach: The All

Saien is a better retelling of the first Rock Musical Bleach and covers more or less the same time frame. It begins with how Ichigo became a shinigami (soul reaper) and ends with his battle with Renji Abarai in the Soul Society. The Dark of the Bleeding Moon takes place entirely in the Soul Society. It begins with Ichigo and Ikkaku Madarame in the midst of battle and ends right before Rukia's execution. I loved the action sequences in this one. No Clouds in the Blue Heavens continues the Soul Society arc. The All is all the musicals put together.

There were also three other Rock Bleach Musical shows that were mainly made up of song performances and comedy skits although some parts of the Bleach story were told. They are:

  • Rock Musical Bleach: The Live Bankai Show Code 001
  • Rock Musical Bleach: The Live Bankai Show Code 002
  • Rock Musical Bleach: The Live Bankai Show Code 003

I wish I had heard of Rock Musical Bleach when it was still running. A few days ago, I saw photos of the actors in it and I thought they were rather cute. Take a look:











Now I love, love, love Rock Musical Bleach, especially the Live Bankai Shows. They're just so much fun! And I really love the songs. I watch all the Rock Musical Bleach DVDs over and over just so I can sing, and yes, dance along! Wanna join me? :)

  2. Yeah, I saw the new cast and began to miss the old cast right away. Hehe. I guess we form a sort of bond with people after watching them grow through 5 years of their lives. :) But I'd still like to check out the new Rock Musical Bleach in July. :)
