    They might be conservative is some areas but not in others.
    Overall, I would say Japan is just like anywhere else. - full of hypocrisy and contradictions. Just about what you would expect of any human society.
    A Free media of any country is traditionally more liberal then the rest of the country. And it is more about the messages being liberal then the content.

    There really isn't that much social commentary in Bleach compared to other series. I can think of two:

    Kon's story at the beginning was quite pro-life with the speech about Soul Society trying to kill him before he was even born and how all he wanted was to be able to see the world.

    Ichigo's rant in chapter three (I think) about how older siblings exist to protect their younger siblings, taken alongside the conversation with Byakuya about defending family members versus defending family honour can be taken as a criticism of the concept of face when it conflicts with well-being, but I don't think it was intentional except as an explanation of a bit of Ichigo's personality.

    Other than that, not much.

    Uryuu freaky, pale and geeky,
    how do your powers grow?

    and thats why the children of the world glorify japan. its like ANYWHERE you put kanji, it becomes cool.

    You could put it on a tea kettle...just ONE character...and now the tea tastes better. You could even put it on a car and it just looks better. Not to mention they have the best electronics and anime/tv shows.

    Their doramas may not be as good as Korean ones, but they're still good.

    What about the RULEs that force Byakyua to have to make such a decsion in the first place. i.e., No giving Shinigami powers to humans or risk execution.

    Look you talking about a country that is/was Historically Isolated. And it wasn't like it opens its doors to the world Willingly it was forced to do it, it was either that or get invaded.
    That is why Japan's conservatism is homogenous.
