I saw this in an anime called Bleach. Now, please don't judge. I'm not a typical anime fan who lets anime control his abilities to write or tell a story. I'm just wondering something I never quite understood before. In Bleach, the main character Ichigo has suddenly spoken, through thought, to explain part of the plot. One instance, he explained, as if to the audience, what had happened to his mother. Is this something that can be done in actual writing, and what is it called. Is it a form of soliloquy or something? Again, I never really delved into this point of view in narrating. I'm not entirely sure what my options are and am only delving into this now. My question is, can I have character's, through thought (I guess this is really my only option), narrate for several paragraphs? And how would this look?
