Synopsis for Bleach
Ichigo Kurosaki is an ordinary high school student until his family is attacked by a Hollow, a corrupting spirit that attempts to devour human souls. He then meets a soul reaper named Rukia Kuchiki, who is injured while protecting Ichigo's family from the attacker. In order to save his family, Ichigo accepts Rukia's offer to take over their powers, thereby becoming a Soul Reaper.
However, with Rukia unable to regain her own power, Ichigo faces the daunting task of hunting down the hollows that plague his town. However, he is not alone in his struggle as he is later joined by his friends: classmates Orihime Inoue, Yasutora Sado and Uryuu Ishida, who have their own unique abilities. As Ichigo and his comrades adjust to their new responsibilities and support each other on and off the battlefield, the young Soul Reaper will soon find that the hollows are the least of his problems.
