Bleach Soma Abridged was originally created by Semisoma1 and MidnightDevont back in October 2007. Semisoma1 pitched the idea of making a Bleach Abridged Series to MidnightDevont (MidnightSohma at the time, before her acount was banned), and they quickly began to work on a trailer. It was released on October 20th of the same year, and the series has had a steady flow of episode releases ever since. Their current video count is 19 series episodes, the complete DDR (Diamond Dust Rebellion) movie and the 1st OVA, The Sealed Sword Frenzy. On July 23, 2009, Semisoma1 made an announcement that Bleach soma Abridged will be closed until further notice or indefinitely. He requested that people not probe into his reason. but made a short return with episode 19 being released in summer of 2010 after large casting and production changes.

The "Soma", in Bleach Soma Abridged[]

The word "Soma"(Soh-ma), is in the title because Semisoma1 wanted to give search engines something unique to search out when people looked for the series. Removing it has been considered several times, but in the end it has been left as it is due to the sole fact that there is no good reason to change it.


Bleach Soma Abridged has always been written and edited by Semisoma1, always using Adobe Premiere Elements 4.0. No other programs are involved with the general editing of sound, or images, apart from Paint being used to create some props for the Christmas special. All recording by Semisoma1 was done on APE 4, and MidnightDevont on WMM, until both switched to Audacity. Later both started recording together over Skype using a recording program called Pamela.

Production for Episode 19[]

After the return after a year of "indefinitely quitting"( In other words, Episode 19 and up), the editing was generally the same with few exceptions;

  • Semisoma01 now used Wavepad for audio recording, and for sound FX effect editing.
  • LordQuadros records on Wavepad, as has always been done.
  • Squeaky93 records on Audacity.
  • It was unknown what BrookeLynn and Dco257 used for recording
  • Since frame-by-frame lip flap editing was taken up past this point, and the captured lip flap frames have to sometimes be edited, Paint is used to edit the frames while Adobe Premier Elements 4.0 is used to capture and save them.

Common Themes[]

Bleach Soma Abridged Characters[]

  • Mostly every character has a fixation (whether it be a hate or an obsession) with a certain thing, item or person. For Ichigo, it's butterflies. For Renji, it's his hate of sunflowers. For Rukia, it's juice boxes. For Kenpachi, it's trains. So on and so forth.

The Fourth Wall[]

The characters all seem bluntly unaware of the outside world, YouTube, and the fact that they're in a series(apart from the espada). However, there are times when the characters inexplicably gain this knowledge, only to lose it shortly after. Characters like Kon and Ishida seem to maintain constant knowledge of the fourth wall and the series, though.
