Ichigo Kurosaki is an ordinary student until his family is attacked by a hollow, a corrupt ghost that tries to devour human souls. Then he meets a soul reaper named Rukia Kuchiki, who is injured while protecting Ichigo's family from the attacker. To save his family, Ichigo accepts Rukia's offer to take over their powers and becomes a soul reaper.

However, with Rukia unable to regain her own power, Ichigo is faced with the daunting task of hunting down the caves that plague his city. He's not alone in his fight, however, as he is later joined by his friends: classmates Orihime Inoue, Yasutora Sado, and Uryuu Ishida, each with their own unique skills. As Ichigo and his comrades get used to their new tasks and support each other on and off the battlefield, the young Soul Reaper will soon find that the Hollows are hardly the slightest problem.
