I love the anime Bleach – it is one of my fav things to sit down and watch at the weekend. However, I discovered something new about the show recently which kinda blew my mind!


I always wondered why the anime was called ‘Bleach’, and only recently found out why. Kubo, the creator of Bleach explained why – first, because we bleach our clothes to remove stains and to whiten them, similarly to how soul reapers cleanse in the anime.

But secondly, and most interestingly for me, it was also the name of a Nirvana album which is one of Kubo’s favourite. I love this because it is also one of my fav albums!

I’d like to think that me and Kubo would have a great conversation about anime and Nirvana!
