Bleach Season Three DVD Box Set

Guest Author - Lesley Aeschliman

Bleach: The Rescue Season Three box set is a five disc set that contains 22 episodes. The first three discs contain four episodes and bonus features, while the fourth and fifth discs contain five episodes and bonus features. The main menu on each disc has four options: "Play," "Scenes," "Set Up," and "Extras." "Play" allows you to play all of the episodes back-to-back. "Scenes" allows you to choose which part of which episode you want to begin watching. "Set Up" allows you to choose whether to have the English or Japanese audio, and whether or not you want to have subtitles. "Extras" allows you to see the extras on the disc.

When it comes to the episodes on this set, my favorites were on the last disc; there were a lot of unexpected twists and turns in the plot in the last few episodes on the set. As a viewer, I found myself looking forward to where the story would go next, and what secrets would be revealed.

On the first disc, there are four extras. The first extra is "Production Art," which is 20 pages of line art of the characters that appear on the disc. The second feature is "Manga Preview," which includes three pages of advertisements for the Bleach manga, as well as other titles released by Shonen Jump. The next feature is "Clean Ending," which is a textless version of the first closing theme that appears in this box set. The final extra on the disc is labeled as "Sneak Peak," which contains trailers for Naruto and The Prince of Tennis.

The second disc has production art, which is 18 pages of line art of the characters that appear on the disc. The "Manga Preview" and "Clean Ending" are the exact same features that appear on the first disc. The "Sneak Peeks" on this disc are trailers for Naruto the Movie 2: The Legend of the Stone of Gelel and Bleach the Movie: Memories of Nobody.

The production art on disc three is 18 pages of line art of the characters that appear on the disc. The "Manga Preview" on this disc is four pages instead of three. The "Clean Ending" is a textless version of the second closing theme that appears in this box set. The "Sneak Peeks" on this disc are trailers for the Naruto: Ultimate Ninja 3 video game, the Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm video game, the Naruto: Parth of the Ninja 2 video game, and the Bleach: Dark Souls video game.

The fourth disc has production art, which is 22 pages of line art of the characters that appear on this disc. The "Manga Preview" and the "Clean Ending" are the exact same features that appear on disc three. The "Sneak Peeks" on this disc are trailers for Bleach the Movie: Memories of Nobody, the Bleach: Dark Souls video game, the Naruto: Ultimate Ninja 3 video game, the Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm video game, the Naruto: Clash of Ninja Revolution 2 video game, the Naruto: Path of the Ninja 2 video game, and the Naruto: The Broken Bond video game.

The first extra on the fifth disc is the “Behind the Scenes of Bleach” documentary. This feature runs for approximately 11 minutes, and includes interviews with the English dub actors for Ganju and Aizen, Female Yoruichi (who is also the Voice Director for the series), Gin, Zangetsu, Orihime and Isane, and Ichigo. The second extra is labeled as "Kon's U.S. Tour." This feature has someone dressed in a Kon suit, and is narrated by Kon. Over the course of this 13-minute feature, Kon is seen in New York before the premiere of the Bleach movie, at the premiere, at the Viz Media after party, at Niagara Falls, at Mt. Rushmore, in Washington, D.C., in New Orleans, at the Grand Canyon, at the St. Louis Arch, in Las Vegas, in San Francisco (at the Viz Media headquarters), and in San Diego (at Viz Media’s booth at Comicon).

The production art is 19 pages of line art of the characters that appear on this disc. The "Manga Preview" and "Clean Ending" are the same as what appears on discs three and four. The "Sneak Peeks" are trailers for Naruto Shippuden, Bleach the Movie: Memories of Nobody, the Bleach: Dark Souls video game, the Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm video game, the Naruto: Path of the Ninja 2 video game, and the Naruto: The Broken Bond video game.

While I expected the repetition of the bonus features based on what I'd seen on the first two box sets, I was still rather disappointed at how predictable the features were. I also still find myself wondering why textless versions of the opening themes weren't included; this would have at least helped to minimize some of the repetition of the bonus features.

Even though I was disappointed by the bonus features, I would still recommend this box set to anyone who is a fan of the Bleach anime series.

In order to write this review, my husband purchased a copy of this DVD box set as a gift for me.
