Introducing the recommended Japanese anime “Bleach”



Ichigo Kurosaki, a high school student who can see ghosts, one day meets a girl named Rukia Kuchiki, who calls herself a “Shinigami” (Soul Reaper). She tells him that the job of a Shinigami is to soul bury, or help spirits find peace, which are called “Hollows”. However, he initially couldn’t believe in the existence of Shinigami.

When Ichigo’s family is attacked by a Hollow, he is forced to believe. Not wanting to involve his family in the turmoil any further, Ichigo confronts the Hollow. But, being just a high school student, he stands no chance, and Rukia, who shielded Ichigo, is seriously injured.

Judging that they would die in this situation, Rukia transfers some of her Shinigami powers to Ichigo, turning him into a Shinigami, and he is able to defeat the Hollow.

However, Ichigo takes more of Rukia’s Shinigami powers than she imagined, and Rukia loses most of her powers. Therefore, Rukia asks him to do the Shinigami’s job in her place, and thus begins Ichigo’s activities as a “Substitute Shinigami”.



Ichigo Kurosaki
The protagonist of this work. At first glance, he seems like an ordinary high school student who could be found anywhere, but he has an exceptionally strong spiritual sense. He is often misunderstood as a cynical nihilist due to his constant furrowed brow, flashy natural hair color, and blunt attitude and language, and is treated as a delinquent at the high school he attends. However, essentially, he is a kind-hearted young man with a strong sense of justice, and he is the type who dislikes underhanded methods and is very loyal.

Rukia Kuchiki
The quasi-protagonist of this work. At first glance, she looks like a young girl, but in reality, she is a Shinigami (Soul Reaper) who has lived for over 100 years. She is serious and tomboyish in nature, but she cares deeply for her comrades. Perhaps because of her complex past, she tends to be delicate and tends to bear her worries alone, but she is originally a cheerful character. She speaks in an old-fashioned, masculine manner.
