Bleach Summary and Spoilers

Ichigo Kurosaki's life suddenly changes, the then 15-year-old student has a different ability than other young people his age. He can see and communicate with spirits and people who have already passed from these to the best.

The dark touch of the plot begins in one night. Young Ichigo is faced with a shinigami, a supernatural entity found in Japanese culture and mythology. Shinigamis have a duty to invite people to death or to influence what causes suicide in those who do not immediately accept the invitation.

The goddess of death, a common name for shinigami, is amazed to see that the boy can see her and communicate with her. The dialogue between the two is interrupted when Rukia Kuchiki senses the presence of a powerful cave - a supernatural entity that engulfs people's spirits.

The two fight in a battle in which Rukia is injured while trying to protect the young man. The only way to save him is to transfer his powers as a reaper of souls to the boy. And that's exactly what happens!

Ichigo transmits his powers and becomes the reaper of souls who easily defeats the cave. Impressed, Rukia stops having her powers and ceases to be a reaper, and because of her human interaction, Rukia tells the soul society to transfer her powers to a human that it will be a long time before she returns to the post-mortem world.

In one part of the series, he focuses on Ichigo playing the role of Rukia: defeating several Hollows, many of them powerful. He also finds that his friends at school also have the ability to see ghosts and communicate with the dead.

The first storyline consists of Ichigo and his colleagues trying to get Rukia out of his death sentence. Due to the transfer of authority to Kurosaki - an illegal act among the soul carvers - she was sentenced to death and placed in the Soul Society.

This whole plan to bring Ichigo and his company to the Soul Society, however, was orchestrated by a Shinigami captain who was previously believed to be dead.

Aizen was responsible for all of this, with his Machiavellian plan to take the city of Karakura. The fighting resulted in Ichigo losing his reaping powers to deal with Aizen forever.

Later, about two years ago, Chad reveals that he has encountered a group of people who have similar powers to his: the Xcution. They were all thoroughbred.

Something that was not known at the time of Aizen was that a accomplisher can give up his powers to restore that of a reaper of souls. Soon the group plans to do the same with Ichigo.

Ichigo, after losing his powers - donated by Rukia - the boy begins intensive training and conquers the powers of a achiever. The protagonist is one of the few who has experienced all the forces in the universe of bleaching.

This series arc focuses on the Xcution leader's evil plan to take Ichigo's powers back. But with the help of his friends and allies at Xcution, who disagreed with the attempted robbery, Kugo Ginjo was eliminated from them. Ichigo regains his powers as a reaper of souls and again protects the city of Karakura.

By the end of the series, viewers will be presented with several arcs showing different races and forces that exist in the world. With many references to Japanese folklore - and some mixtures of others - the saga ends with our much older heroes, married and with children.

Ichigo has a daughter. With who? That's right, Inoue. The boy - now twenty-seven years old - shows the girl the powers of a reaper of souls. The city of Karakura still has a hero of Ichigo Kurosaki's lineage.

Bleach facts

- Although the anime was one of the manga that hit the 100 million-plus mark sold, it was canceled by Mnaga due to low demand. Since there was only one arc left for the end of the anime, but no, Tite Kubo preferred to end the anime - which was already causing losses for the studios - and move on with the manga.

- Dragon Ball writer Akira Toriyama was responsible for the existence of Bleach. Without them, Tite Kubo would have given up publishing the manga as Shounen Jump magazine rejected it. This is one of the most famous manga magazines in Japan - if not number one. Mr. Kubo reports that they even laughed in his face when he sent the paper for evaluation. Sorry mistake.

- One of the characters - who became central much later - appeared on the cover of the first edition of the manga. However, Tite was unable to find a way out the way he wanted first. Soon Hirako Shinji did not appear until 183 chapters later.

- The mythology that surrounds bleaching is of course a brand of Tite Kubo. However, the author not only created a very well-researched folklore, but also added the languages ​​of our real universe in his series. As the plot progresses, it is clear that some words relating to the cave are of Spanish origin. Another example is the bount which, when referenced, is a German word.

- Everything Tite Kubo went through to get his masterpiece released has been very stressful. But when he can, he lets go of his pencil and creativity ran through the paper to shape the universe from bleaching. What shook the author was that he had to rewrite some scripts at certain times. For those new to the field, all you can imagine is repeating a job that is already done, a bit of a problem. But for Tite it turned into a tremendous stomach ache!

- Censorship is very common in the anime as the vast majority of the audience are children. Therefore, in some scenes in the manga where an arm was pulled out and broken in two - oh what a pain - it was only replaced with cuts in the anime. The arm remained intact.
