    MnM2e or 3e would work for Bleach, it works for just about anything. Bankai and Shikai is simply raising your character to another PL for a short period of time.

    I don't remember, PL is like a cap on your abilities right? In HERO you can model Shikai/Bankai/Hollow Mask/Resurreccion/etc. by building the appropriate powers and applying some limitations, such as Focus (you need your Zanpakuto), Duration (you can only use it for so long), Endurance (it tires you), possibly others. For anyone unfamiliar with HERO limitations are modifiers that make a power weaker in some way but also make it cost less character points.

    Alternatively, they could be applications of the Aid power with the Self-Only limitation (Aid is a power that increases your stats) along with some powers that are linked to the Aid (that is, can only be used when the Aid is active).

    This HERO system sounds quite interesting. How might one go about finding the rules?
    A new Hero on a new quest.Villains both old and new. Allies and Enemies of all kinds.

    A dual-wielding Hero with an idealistic heart. An ancient, magical, sentient sword with a sarcastic and snide sense of humor whose spirit takes the form of a girl. A conflicted mercenary with split loyalties. A former assassin with the powers of a Sage. It is a new tale of destiny in the land of Hyrule. The Legend of Zelda: Sword of Souls! (my fanfic)

    You mean purchase? The latest edition is 6th, and can be found here; unfortunately I don't think there is a free "preview" of the rules as with GURPS Lite. If you are referring to less than legal means, we can't discuss that here, but it wouldn't be that hard to find.

    Yeah, hero system would totally work, rather well when it comes down to it. At least, the edition I have would. Not sure how much they've changed, but I have...5th, I think? And it would totally work.

    5th and 6th are pretty close, from the HERO Games website:
    Q: What are the major differences between the 5th Edition and the 6th Edition?
    A: The fundamentals of the game - the type of dice used and how they're used, Character Points, the SPD Chart, and so on - haven't changed. The two "biggest" changes in most gamers' eyes are (a) the elimination of the "hex" (everything's just measured in meters now, making the game easier to learn and play), and (b) the "decoupling" of Figured Characteristics (PD, ED, SPD, and the like all still exist, but they don't derive from the "Primary" Characteristics at all). But beyond that there are lots of minor tweaks to costs and values, changes to several Powers, new Powers and Power Modifiers, and so on.
    Both could be used for Bleach. In fact, if anyone wants to start a forum game I'd be willing to play.

    I decided to stat out Ichigo in HERO System 6th Edition just to see how it would work, and then I decided to post the results here. Note that I stated him as he was before Final Getsuga. By and large the only difficult thing was Bankai/Hollowfication. There are many ways to simulate those, so for Bankai I settled on a variant of Only in Alternate Identity while for Hollowfication I chose to use Multiform (explanation in a bit). Without further ado, HERO System Ichigo:

    Now for some design notes and an explanation of what all this means:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Characters in Hero are built on Character Points, which you use to purchase everything from strength to computer hacking skills to magical powers. I chose to build Ichigo is built on 400 points, which is the standard for a Super Hero game. There are 5 categories of abilities you can buy with points, Characteristics, Skills, Perks, Talents, and Powers. Characteristics are base stats everyone has but to different degrees, like Strength or Dexterity. They are roughly equivalent to D&D Ability Scores, but include a few more things. Strength, Dexterity, Constitution, and Intelligence are very similar to the D&D Abilities of the same name, while Ego and Presence are close to Wisdom and Charisma Respectively. OCV and DVC stand for Offensive Combat Value and Defensive Combat Value, and are how good you are at hitting/defending against attacks, essentially Base Attack Bonus and Armor Class. OMCV and DMCV are the psychic versions of OCV and DCV and irrelevant to Ichigo. To understand Speed you need to understand the Turn and Phase system. A Phase is very similar to a D&D Turn, in a Phase you can take either one Full Phase Action or Two Half Phase Actions as well as any number of Zero Phase Actions. The big difference is that there are 12 phases in a 12 second turn, and your speed determines how many phases you can act in. You start with a speed of two, which gives you two six second phases just like D&D, and especially in low powered games many GMs will just limit you to that, but with higher speed you can act more often, which simulates well many high powered Super Powered and Magical characters. PD and ED are Physical Defense and Energy Defense, and subtract damage from attacks of the appropriate nature, kind of like Damage Reduction, except more of a necessity. End or Endurance is your ability to keep acting, most actions reduce your Endurance and you can't act if you don't have any. Because it adds bookkeeping some GMs eliminate it. Recovery is how fast your END and Stun Recover. There are two types of damage in HERO, Stun and Body. Most attacks do some of both, more Stun than Body. When you lose all your Stun you are unconscious, all your Body and you die. Finally, Running, Swimming, and Leaping is how fast you can move in a phase; confusingly to new players they are less important than Speed in determining how fast you move in an absolute sense.

    Skills are just that, skills that a normal person can have but require training. I couldn't actually think of any skills Ichigo has except Martial Arts, so I gave him 3 Martial Maneuvers: Block, Dodge, and Strike, which as the names suggest make him better at doing those 3 things. Normally Martial Arts works with Unarmed Combat unless you specifically practice a weapon based Martial Art like Escrima or Kenjutsu, so I bought Weapon Element: Blades to let Ichigo use his abilities both Unarmed and with Zangetsu. I also gave him Combat Skill Levels, which can be assigned on the fly to increase OCV, DCV, or Damage, but only when using those Martial Maneuvers (there are different ways to buy CSLs, including letting them be used with all attacks).

    Perks are exactly what they sound like, benefits unrelated to the abilities of the character, such as their position in an organization, useful contacts, followers, licenses for restricted items, etc. I can't think of anything for Ichigo except for Shinigami Representative, but I don't see that as being worth points since I don't see how it benefits Ichigo.

    Talents are like D&D feats, they are abilities that are beyond the ordinary, and thus not Skills, but realistic and not supernatural, and thus not Powers. Examples include Ambidexterity, Eidetic Memory, and Combat Sense (ability to fight in the dark). I didn't give Ichigo any of these either.

    Powers are the heart of HERO System. They are a very versatile way to build any number of abilities using the point system. Typically Powers represent supernatural abilities, such as Super Powers, Magic, or Psychic Powers, but they can be used to represent mundane abilities if you so choose. This is where I built Ichigo's Shinigami powers. Reiatsu represents his resistance to attacks using the Resistant Protection Power, which gives protection against lethal attacks (non-resistant protection, such as that bought as a characteristic, only defends against non-lethal damage). Detect Reiryoku is his ability to detect other spiritual beings, how it's built isn't terribly important. Shunpo is built as a form of Teleportation, with the limitation that you still technically move through the intervening space, so for example you couldn't use it to move through a wall or to escape a grapple. Note that Teleportation works just like regular movement in HERO unless you change that, so you can easily use Shunpo and attack in the same turn. Zangetsu and Getsuga Tensho are just attacks. Note that they are both "Partially Limited". That is, most of their effect is always available, but their full power is only usable in Bankai. For Bankai I just applied the Only Usable in Alternate Identity Limitation and renamed it Bankai. This Limitation means that the power can only be used in certain conditions which take at least a Full Phase to activate. As the name implies it is often used for Super Heroes who can only use their abilities in their Alternate Identity, but it also works well to represent Shikai/Bankai. I should also mention OAF, this is short for "Obvious Accessible Focus" which meas that the power is reliant upon an item that can be taken away. Ichigo's Speed also doubles when using Bankai. Finally Multiform is used to represent Hollowfication. A separate character sheet has his Hollow Stats, which appear below:

    The only difference is some improved abilities.

    Finally there are Complications. In HERO every character is required to have some Complications that weaken their character or else they get less Character Points. A 400 point character typically needs 75 points worth of Complications. This serves several purposes, including creating adventure hooks, making characters more well rounded, and generally making the game more interesting. Unfortunately these are hard to do for Ichigo. I gave him a Psychological Complication to represent his Chronic Hero Syndrome, a few Dependent NPCs, that is characters they have to go around rescuing, a small chance for Hollow Ichigo to take over when he uses Bankai or Hollowfication, and Distinctive Features for his orange hair, which nobody else in the Bleachverse has. It isn't perfect, I could probably have got more mileage out of Psychological Complications, but I never intended to put that much work into this.


    Alright, there it is. It isn't perfect, but it was a quick and dirty conversion. Generally conversions are harder than making your own character anyways. Hope somebody found that interesting .

    Less with regards to how to do stuff with the rules(though those may pop up as well), but with issues deciding what the plot should be, when it's taking place. Who from the Series is going to be active, and who isn't.

    If it were me, I'd go with a parallel universe with completely new characters but largely the same setting. Otherwise you'd have to deal with the PCs knowing things they should't, not to mention it is easier to devise your own plot than to decide how to diverge from the main one. You could have expies or parallel universe versions of characters if you wanted.

    Alternatively, set it in the distant past. You'd still have a couple of the older characters and some ancestors of some of the characters but you'd have much more freedom. Also I think Feudal Japan would be more fun than Modern Japan if you did a lot of real world adventuring, unless you went for an Urban Fantasy style I guess. If you wanted to deviate from the source material you could include additional supernatural beings like Kitsune, Neko-mata, and Oni.

    For examples, you can look at this game I started, or the older freeform Bleach games in these boards. It's bound to give you some ideas.

    EDIT: Also, Nekomata, Kitsune and Oni don't need deviations from canon creatures, as all of them can be Shinigami or Hollows themed after such mythological creatures.

    Apparently, Shonen Jump has had small snippets and interviews with Kubo for material throughout the 3 week hiatus, about the state of things as they are now in the story, and hints on what the next arc is going to be like and hints to what it will contain. I wont go into specifics, but you can read up on it here. As of this post, only weeks 1 and 2 have been printed, but week 3 will probably be out within the next day or two.

    setting aside that arrancar as allies makes no sense (except for nel). his attitude annoys me to no end.

    Well, he did only say the likelyhood of certain arrancars reapearing still doesn't make it certain, and Nel is the only one he really dwelled on that fact, though Grimmjow is also a candidate, so hopefully he doesn't troll this time.

    Things I like about the interview:

    Apparently, Unohana will actually fight with her zanpakuto at some point.

    Renji's bankai has changed in some way.

    Shunsui will finally go bankai.

    Based on the interview, I think that Stark, Harribel, Nel, Nnoitra, Grimmjow, and Zommari are somehow alive. Stark, Nnoitra, and Zommari are stated as "extremely unlikely" to reappear, not just given a blank where the other arrancar are dead. Harribel is an "unlikely" and Nel and Grimmjow are "very likely."

    Things I don't like:

    Apparently the last arc was supposed to be about Chad.

    ... what?

    well it sort of was. he figured out the source of his power (though how his skin has a different soul from the rest of him...), the whole arc is dependent on him making the connection with the fullbringers, etc.

    shunsui's bankai (im sucha LoL addict i wrote ult the first time around ) is some reality warping thing im sure.
    ukitake's is the one i want to see.
    that and yamamoto

    I think those were just guesses from the editor.

    Nel wasn't put in a "no way she could survive that" situation in her last appearance AFAIK, and Grimmjow is too much fangirlbait to stay down.

    Couldn't some of them re-appear in Hell or something? Like those other 2 did.

    I'm one of those losers who doesn't read the manga but rather enjoys the anime when convenient. What I'd like to know from you manga readers is this: Which Ichigo has come back? Is it the determined one who doesn't care about the odds? Or is it the godly powerful one who is paralyzed by fear and doubt? The first one is the guy that made this story interesting, and for years now I've only really seen him in the filler arcs the anime adds.

    If he's back to his original "I want to win!" self, then this whole death-and-return-of-super-Ichigo thing might just be worth it.

    Judging from his curbstomp battle with Kuugo, I'd say "determined and godly powerful." Pretty much exactly as he was right after learning Mugetsu. He definitely didn't break a sweat, and the captains were so assured of his victory they didn't even hang around to watch.

    Some would say he never had any in the first place.

    I'm putting my bet right now that Ichigo's mom was related in some way to one of the captains.

    See, now all I can think of is Shunsui as a pervy uncle, Ukitake as the uncle who gives you way too many christmas presents and remembers all your birthdays, Unohana as the aunt who always brings the good homemade stuff to Thanksgiving, and Yamamoto as the grandfather who will glare at you very hard if you don't start using a coaster this very minute young man.
