Bleach Manga is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Tite Kubo. Bleach follows the adventures of the hotheaded teenager Ichigo Kurosaki, who inherits his parents’ destiny after he obtains the powers of a Soul Reaper a death personification similar to the Grim Reaper—from another Soul Reaper, Rukia Kichiki. His new-found powers force him to take on the duties of defending humans from evil spirits guiding departed souls to the afterlife, and set him on journeys to various ghostly realms of existence.
Bleach Manga starts from the main character Ichiko Kurosaki which is a teenager from Karakura Town who can see ghosts, a talent which lets him meet supernatural trespasser Rukia Kuchiki who enters Ichigo’s room in search of a Hollow, a kind of monstrous lost soul who can harm both ghosts and humans. Rukia is one of the Soul Reapers (Shinigami, literally ‘Death Gods’), soldiers trusted with ushering the souls of the dead from the World of the Living to the Soul Society —the afterlife realm from which she originates—and with fighting Hollows.
When she is severely wounded defending Ichigo from a Hollow she is pursuing, Rukia transfers her powers to Ichigo so that he may fight in her stead while she recovers her strength. Rukia is thereby trapped in an ordinary human body, and must advise Ichigo as he balances the demands of his substitute Soul Reaper duties and attending high school.
For aid in hunting the Hollows, the pair ally with a trio of other spiritually empowered teenagers: Ichigo’s high school classmate Orihime Inoue, best friend Yasitora “Chad” and the Quincy—humans who have the ability to control spirit particles—Uryi Ishida.
Bleach Manga eventually, Rukia is arrested by her Soul Reaper superiors and sentenced to death for the illegal act of transferring her powers into a human. Ichigo and friends enlist the help of ex-Soul Reaper scientist Kisuke Urihara, who also enables Ichigo to access his own Soul Reaper powers, to enter Soul Society and rescue Rukia. Shortly after the party’s arrival in the Soul Society, conflict arises among the captains of the 13 Court Squads when the captain of the fifth company, Sosuke Aizen, is apparently murdered, which causes the Soul Reapers to begin fighting amongst themselves.
There after the Captain Commander Genryusai Shigekuni Yamamoto issues a wide spread search for Ichigo and his friends as being responsible for the murder of Aizen. However, as Ichigo is almost successful in rescuing Rukia, and Soul Society is on the verge of civil war, Aizen reappears and reveals his intention to obtain the Hōgyoku —an orb of immense power—that Kisuke planted in Rukia’s human vessel by faking his death and arranging Rukia’s execution.
Aizen is accompanied by his fellow conspirators, Gin Ichimaru and Kaname Tōsen who are the third and ninth company’s captains, as they use Hollows to cover their escape into the Hollows’ realm, Hueco Mundo. Afterwards, Ichigo and Rukia reconcile with the Soul Reapers, who view the former as a powerful ally and designate him as an official substitute Soul Reaper.
