This here be a Bleach RPG, obviously; if you’re involved in the Fairy Tail or Hunter x Hunter RPGs here, or have read either of them, then you'll know the kind of thing I'm going for with this. If not, then no worries; it’s easy and will hopefully be a lot of fun!
The RPG will be set in Soul Society and all Player Characters will be Shinigami. However, it won’t quite be the Soul Society we all know. Instead, it will be set in alternate continuity where Ichigo, Aizen, Yamamoto and co. don’t exist. Apart from that, though, most things are the same. And yeah, I know this doesn’t make complete sense, since it’d mean Yamamoto would never have set up the Shinigami Academy, nor Urahara the R&D Department, but suspend your disbelief if you will. Doing it this way means we get to play in a familiar environment, but aren’t constrained by having to stick the manga’s continuity and characters.
The game mechanics will be, roughly, as follows:
Here are details of the Captains of the Thirteen Court Guard Companies. Unless states otherwise, the duties of the Divisions are the same as of those in the canon material.

Thank you for joining! I was beginning to give up hope!! Also, welcome to Mangahelpers!
Now, onto your application: everything from your Name to your personality is fine (his apparance sounds cooool!)
Everything in your history is fine too, apart from the reference to how long it took him to get Shikai/Bankai. As I said, how long it takes Shinigami to age/rise up the rank/train etc. is vague, so we'll be vague too. So just take out the bit about it taking him 11 years.
Fighting Style's good too, and so's your Shikai. As I said in the first post, however, I'm not accepting Bankai from characters below Captain (though you'll be allowed to learn it later). So either change your rank to Captain, or take out the Bankai.
Note: Not that it matters much, but since the Bankai is ability-based, that would make it a Kido-type, not Melee-type.

Edited all you said.
Awesome!! Thanks for joining! I've added Kenichi to the character list.

By the way, though I didn't mention it before, the first arc will begin with the player characters (and maybe an NPC character) being assigned to a special mission in the Human World.
Sounds like fun! Now i'm curious.
When we got one more player, we'll start. Funny, I thought that with the number of fans Bleach has we'd have more applicants.
I'm not sure I understand how to play the game, I'll try to participate as it'll at least help me to improve my English.

Awesome, love Force Bringer. Two quick questions about your characters:
1) What do you mean by "He can keep up with shunpo users without being one"? Does he know shunpo or not?
2) When chanelling Kido spells through Force Bringer, does the standard effect of the spell still activate? Or would it simply be that the stronger the Kido you activate, the greater the boost to attack/defence?
2/ the standard effect is applied, if i use byakurai, instead of shooting it out, my blade will be enhanced with the power of byakurai. If i use danku, the defense power would be boosted by the same ammount. Only attack and defense spells can be used to enhance. Battle support spells like binding spells or healing spells can't be used.
Ok, so I'd like to be the 9th Division Captain.
Is that taken
If not, do I have to keep all the stuff you wrote about him, or can I at least change his name?
2) Cool cool, just wanted to clear that up. I've added your character to the character list.
He's not taken; you can change anything about him you want including name, personality and appearance. Essentially you can make an entirely different character.
I have the Captains thought out but Player Characters take precedent. Minami Kuroshi (the name currently listed for 9th Captain) is a character I quite like so I'll probably make him Captain of another division and shove a different Captain out. :P
Sure, no worries. I'm at a friend's until Monday so I may not get a chance to post much until then, so take your time.
Are you going to use Kuroshi, or go from scratch (entirely your call)?
On Monday I'll start the RPG, but I'll still be accepting applications after we've begun (unless more people apply this weekend).
