Welcome to bleach_rants, a ranting community centered around the manga & anime series, Bleach by Kubo Tite. Rant to your heart's desire just keep the wank on a tight leash. We're not afraid to enforce rules here.

1. No character or 'ship bashing.
There's a distinct line in disliking and bashing. Bashing is something along the lines of "OMFG [INSERT CHARACTER HERE] IS SUCH A BITCH FOR GETTING IN THE WAY OF [INSERT PAIRING HERE]." That kind of ranting will get you in serious trouble. If you must vocalize your dislike of something it is better to state it like this: "I don't like Mayuri because of the little value he has shown to his subordinates in Chapter such-and-such..."

2. Don't harass someone for sharing a different opinion.
Debate and discussion are encouraged here, but if you don't respect someone's opinion you better act mature about it.

3. No fangirl Japanese.
Sorry, it's a crappy way to appear fluent in the Japanese language and frankly we'll think less of you for it.

4. Common Courtesy.
Respect each other. Plain and simple.

5. Be careful of Spoilers.
If it hasn't been released yet in the States, best to put it behind a cut.

6. Use proper spelling and grammar.
This goes in hand with rule #3. If you can't be arsed enough to use proper spelling and grammar, we can't be arsed enough to take you seriously.

7. Ranting about fanfiction and other fanworks is acceptable.
But please explain why you're ranting about it and if it's long, put it behind an lj-cut.

8. The occasional cussing is accepted.
But excessive use needs to be put behind an LJ-cut.

9. Act your age. Kthx.
Don't make us wonder if your age is equal to our shoe size.

If you follow these rules, we'll get along just fine. However, should you troll, harass or in general just make an ass out of yourself, you'll be banned. This is for ranting, not to be stupid.
