I love the soundtrack of Bleach! Its more like rock and then a few strange tunes and sounds but all make up a great combination. The music is just perfect for an anime as great as Bleach. It breaks me down to see Bleach so low on this list. My favorite soundtrack is from the first OST - Precipice of Defeat. And I use these OSTs and the ones from Death Note as my study music and it helps me alright. And about this item being so low on this list.. I just looked up a couple of objective lists and both had Bleach in its top 2 for the anime with the greatest soundtrack which means we need to get this to the top ten. - SytachiRed
