More like, they edited 80% of the blood out, voice acting sucks, the original music isn't there.....

Don't be so negative. They cut out some of the blood, sure. But they also left some of it in, and they are showing it on Toonami, not Adult Swim. This is a good omen for future dubs.
My biggest fear for Bleach would be that they try translating all the terms and screw it up really badly.
Considering about one of Naruto's songs didn't suck, not much of a loss.

Can't say much for the blood, I only catch parts, don't like Naruto enough to bother watching it.
The voice acting isn't that bad. In the Japanese version, like half the genins(who are twelve and thirteen) sounded like adults, and Sasuke sounded like he was 40..

Of course they're going to edit out some blood when it's on Toonami.. They edit out moving blood, which is the same thing every dub that shows before 10:00 PM does..
And the translation is quite accurate.
Hey hey hey, stop fucking talking about Naruto!!! No fucking comparison about those two mangas!!!
Or else just lock this thread if this going to continue

The Answerman article given to us by evangelion13 was very helpful. Viz won't be licensing Bleach out to an anime production company because it is an anime production company. So all of your fears about 4Kids tearing it apart or your hopes of Funimation working its magic should be put to rest.
Looking at Viz's list of titles it distributes in the US, it becomes a bit concerning however, because they mostly do kids shows like Hamtaro and Zatch Bell. Shows like Inuyasha and Naruto, which are aimed at teenagers and are much more violent and bloody, are also produced by Viz and don't seem to terribly torn apart. Yes, the moving blood was removed from Naruto, but as it has already been pointed out by Mr. Papaya, all shows before 10:00 have that edited out as per FCC rules.
I think we can expect the Bleach anime to be very good, considering Viz's track record with TV shows aimed at teenagers. I think we can also expect Bleach to debut on the Adult Swim timeslot, as it deals with more mature themes and has infinitely more "moving blood" than Naruto or Inuyasha. However, if Bleach for some reason gets stuck on the Toonami timeslot, you're all probably in for a decent - albeit disappointing - dub.
