  3. 3. <ul><li>Ichigo kurosaki </li></ul><ul><li>Ichigo Kurosaki ( 黒崎 一護 ,Kurosaki Ichigo) is the primary protagonist of Bleach, orange-haired high school freshman Ichigo is forced to become a substitute Soul Reaper after unintentionally absorbing most of Rukia's powers.His cynical nature at first makes him ill-disposed towards the duty, but with the passage of time he comes to accept and welcome the strength his Soul Reaper powers give him, as it allows him to protect those close to him.When creating the manga series, Kubo commented that Rukia Kuchiki, the first character he created, did not seem like a lead character, so he created Ichigo to be the series protagonist. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>Rukia Kuchiki </li></ul><ul><li>Rukia Kuchiki ( 朽木 ルキア Kuchiki Rukia ) is a Soul Reaper who is assigned hollow extermination duties in Ichigo's hometown. Though her physical appearance is that of a teenage girl, in reality she is ten times older than Ichigo. At the opening of the story, Rukia is forced to transfer her powers to Ichigo and assume a temporary lifestyle as a regular human. She registers at the local high school and takes up residence in Ichigo's closet, while teaching him how to be a substitute Soul Reaper in her place.[10] Rukia was one of the first characters of the series created by Kubo, her design being the one he decided to use for all the other Soul Reapers. She is voiced by Fumiko Orikasa in Japanese and by Michelle Ruff in English. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Orihime Inoue </li></ul><ul><li>Orihime Inoue ( 井上 織姫 Inoue Orihime) is a long-time classmate of Ichigo, linked to him by mutual friend Tatsuki Arisawa. She is effectively an orphan, as when she was 3, her older brother Sora left their abusive parents' home with Orihime and raised her on his own, later on, when Orihime was in middle school he died in a car accident. Though initially devoid of spiritual powers, she develops spiritual awareness early in the plot and later obtains one of the strongest powers in the Bleach universe, a god-like ability to reject fate. She is voiced by Yuki Matsuoka in the Japanese series and by Stephanie Sheh in the English dub. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>Yasutora Sado </li></ul><ul><li>Yasutora Sado ( 茶渡 泰虎 Sado Yasutora ), better known as Chad ( チャド Chado ), is one of Ichigo's friends at school. He is a biracial Japanese / Mexican student who towers over his classmates. Despite his imposing appearance he is quite meek, and refuses to fight unless it is for the sake of another. Chad does not have awareness of ghosts at first, but this changes when he witnesses a group of children being attacked by a hollow. He discovers a unique ability that strengthens and armors his right arm, enabling him to fight hollows. He later develops the ability to shoot energy from his armored arm and also discovers that his left arm holds powerful offensive abilities. Hiroki Yasumoto voices him in the Japanese series, while J amieson Price plays him in the English adaptation. </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>Uryū Ishida </li></ul><ul><li>Ury ü Ishida ( 石田 雨竜 Ishida Uryū ) is a Quincy, descendant of a line of priest-like hollow-hunting archers who were historical enemies of the Soul Reapers.He bears a deep grudge against all Soul Reapers, including Ichigo, and is an early antagonist in the series.He comes to view Ichigo differently over time, however, eventually becoming a valuable ally and friendly rival.He is voiced by Noriaki Sugiyama in Japanese and Derek Stephen Prince in English. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>Kon </li></ul><ul><li>Kon ( コン ) is the first modsoul to appear in Bleach. He primarily serves as a comedic foil in the series, receiving little respect and much disdain from other characters. He is not completely undeserving of this treatment as he is highly perverted in nature; he is drawn to girls with big breasts (and displays attraction towards Rukia despite her lack thereof, but more because he believes she saved his life) and, when inhabiting another's body, spends his time trying to look up skirts since &quot;it will not be [his] reputation that gets sullied&quot;.However, from the beginning he displayed a much more serious side to himself, believing that a life should not be taken on purpose after he witnessed the destruction of other mod souls. Kon's area of expertise are his legs, and thus he can run faster and jump higher than any human, even in his plush form. He typically inhabits a lion plushie that he is very fond of, referring to it as his &quot;sexy body&quot;. Kon also inhabits Ichigo Kurosaki's body whenever he is away, playing the part of Ichigo so that his family does not miss him. Although Kon makes only sporadic appearances in the Bleach storyline, he frequently hosts and/or stars in omake specials for the series, self-proclaiming himself the series' mascot. He is voiced by Mitsuaki Madono in the Japanese series and by Quinton Flynn in the English version. </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>The story opens with the sudden appearance of Soul Reaper Rukia Kuchiki in Ichigo Kurosaki's bedroom. She is surprised at his ability to see her, but their conversation is interrupted by the appearance of a &quot;hollow&quot;, an evil spirit. After Rukia is severely wounded while trying to protect Ichigo, she attempts to transfer half her powers to Ichigo in order to let him face the hollow on equal footing. Ichigo instead unintentionally absorbs almost all her energy, allowing him to defeat the hollow with ease. The next day Rukia appears in Ichigo's classroom as a seemingly normal human, and informs Ichigo that his absorption of her powers has left her stranded in the human world until she recovers her strength. In the meantime Ichigo shelters Rukia in his home and takes over her job as a Soul Reaper, battling hollows and guiding lost souls to the afterlife realm known as Soul Society. </li></ul><ul><li>After a few months of this arrangement, in the sixth volume of the series, Rukia's Soul Reaper superiors find out about her giving her powers away (which is illegal in Soul Society) and send a detachment to arrest her, and sentence her to death. Ichigo is unable to stop Rukia's capture, but with the help of several of his classmates who also possess spiritual abilities and ex-Soul Reaper Captain Kisuke Urahara, he sets off for the Soul Reaper base, located in Soul Society. Once there, Ichigo and company battle against the elites of the Soul Reaper military, and are ultimately successful in halting Rukia's execution. </li></ul><ul><li>It is then revealed that Rukia's execution and Ichigo's rescue attempt were both manipulated by Sōsuke Aizen, a high ranking Soul Reaper previously believed to be murdered, as part of a far-reaching plot to take control of Soul Society. Aizen betrays his fellow Soul Reapers and allies himself with the hollows, becoming the main antagonist of the series, and Ichigo teams up with his former enemies in Soul Society after learning that the next step in Aizen's plan involves the destruction of his hometown. At this point, Bleach chronicles the war between Aizen and the Soul Society, a plotline which has not yet been resolved. According to Tite Kubo, the ending of the series is not yet planned out or written. </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>Noriaki Kubo ( 久保 宣章 , Kubo Noriaki) (born June 26, 1977), known by his pen name Tite Kubo ( 久保 帯人 , Kubo Taito), is a Japanese manga artist. His most significant work is the manga series Bleach. </li></ul><ul><li>The son of a town council member in Fuchu, Aki District, Hiroshima, Kubo graduated from the local high school. In an interview, Kubo has stated that he entered a magazine's manga contest, and that although he did not win, one of the magazine's editors noticed his talent. They subsequently worked together on joint projects. Not long afterward, his first manga short, &quot;Ultra Unholy Hearted Machine&quot;, was published in Shueisha's Weekly Shōnen Jump Special in 1996. This was followed by two more shorts, and in 1999 his first serial, Zombiepowder., began in Weekly Shōnen Jump and ran for four volumes until 2000, when it was cancelled. According to the author's commentary in the cover leaf of the third tankōbon, Kubo was in a state of severe emotional trauma when he wrote it. </li></ul><ul><li>His next serial, Bleach, about a high school student who becomes a shinigami and fights evil spirits, began running in the same magazine in 2001. Kubo initially expected the series' serialization to continue no longer than five years.[citation needed] As of April 2009, Bleach has reached over 350 chapters, and an anime adaptation began running in Japan in 2004. The manga was named a winner of the Shogakukan Manga Award for its category in 2005. Kubo and Makoto Matsubara have co-authored two novelizations of the Bleach series, which were published by Shueisha under their Jump Books label. A Bleach movie was released in Japan on December 16, 2006, followed by a second movie on December 22, 2007. Kubo also appeared in the episode 112 of the Japanese radio program of Bleach B-Station. In that program, Kubo was interviewed by Masakazu Morita, voice actor of Ichigo Kurosaki, the main character of Bleach, and answered several questions from fans. On July 26, 2008, Kubo went to the United States for the first time and made an appearance at the San Diego Comic-Con International. </li></ul>
