The flaws of Bleach have been quite adequately pointed out to me but I feel that there's one area in which Bleach exceeds expectations and no I'm not referring to the number of fights or the prettiness of the pictures. What I am referring to is racial diversity and the portrayal of said racially diverse characters. Now I'm not saying it's Captain Planet with someone from every corner of the globe but it's a wee bit better than your standard white/asian hybrid characters with multi coloured hair that fills most anime/manga. Now being of one particular race I’m clearly going to have a disproportionate interest in that races portrayal so I hope those of races Bleach doesn’t represent won’t consider me presumptuous in praising it for it’s diversity. All the major groups(shinigami, arrancar, human and Vizard) appear to have at the very least one token character.
