Ichigo Kurosaki is a young man in high school in Karakura Town. Ichigo has the unique ability to see and talk to ghosts. He lives with his father, and his two little sisters, Karin and Yuzu. Ichigo's mother was killed when he was little. One day, after visiting a little ghost girl Ichigo was resting in his room, when suddenly a giant ghost like monster attacked his house. He could do nothing, but run. Ichigo then saw a girl around his age dressed in a black robe, and she was wielding a sword. She fought the monster, but was beaten. Ichigo went to her, and she asked if he could see her. When Ichigo said yes she asked what he wanted. He replied by saying that he wants power, in order to protect his loved ones. She told him his name was Rukia Kuchiki, and he told her his name, right before she stabbed him, and a strange light flashed. When everything was clear, Ichigo stood next to Rukia, wearing the same clothes she was, and he was now wielding a massive sword. Ichigo had slain the monster, and realized he can now protect the ones he loves. He liked this power, but Rukia only wanted to give him some of her power temporarily, but instead gave him all of her power, forever. This was only the beginning of the story of Ichigo Kurosaki.

Ichigo now fights hollows, which are ghosts that lost their soul and are no longer bound to Earth. Rukia went to school with Ichigo, and they both found out that more people at their school had similar spiritual pressure that Ichigo had when Rukia met him. When two other Soul Reapers come to to world of the living to get Rukia, they say that she has violated a code of the Soul Society, and she has been sentenced to death. Rukia is willing going with them, but Ichigo had different plans. He tried to fight them, but was no match for a red haired one, named Renji Abarai, who used to be Rukia's friend.

Squad of the 13 Court Guard Squads of the Seireitei. The Seireitei is an area in the center of the Soul Society where all the Soul Reapers live. Rukia is a Soul Reaper in the 13th Squad, under Captain Jushiro Ukitake's command. She was assigned to patrol the Karakura Town area from hollows, and other things, but she was defeated by a hollow and transfered her all Soul Reaper powers to Ichigo, which left her too weak to return to the Soul Society. She decided to wait in Karakura, until her powers returned to her. She was living and going to school with Ichigo in the mean time, where she met and made new friends. When her once old friend and older brother came to retrieve her, she willfully followed, knowing her consequences, for giving a human her powers. Rukia died in the real world and grew up in the Rukongai district of the Seireitei, where the souls that aren't Soul Reapers live. There she met Renji Abarai, whom she would have a life long friendship with. When she was adopted by the Kuchiki family, she left Renji. Her zanpakuto is called Sode no Shirayuki. It utilizes ice to attack and the attacks are labeled as three different dances.

The Soul Society

When Ichigo and the others arrive in the Soul Society, they broke through the gate to the Seireitei, they had to fight a lot of Soul Reapers to find and save Rukia. Ichigo first meets and fight Ikkakaku Madarame, who calls his zanpakuto's name and unleashes his shikai, the second stage in a zanpakuto. Ichigo defeats him, and then, meets Ikkaku's captain, Kenpachi Zaraki, captain of the 11th Squad, who only wants to fight the best and strongest opponents. Ichigo realizes, that Kenpachi has no shikai, but is demonic human that likes to fight, and loves being cut, because it shows he is fighting a good opponent. After a long battle, Ichigo barely defeats him, and proceeds to find Rukia. When he is so close, he once again meets Renji Abarai. They have a long and exhausting fight, and Ichigo seems to be defeated, but just beats Renji in one swift move. Before Renji falls he tells Ichigo to save Rukia by any means necessary. Ichigo finally finds Rukia, but is stopped by Byakuya. Byakuya shows Ichigo his Ban Kai, the third and most pwerful stage to a zanpakuto. His is called Senbonzakura. Ichigo is put nearly to death, but is saved by a woman named Yoruichi, and she tells Byakuya Ichigo will fight him later. Ichigo wakes up, and inside Yoruichi's house. She tells him that he would've been no match for Byakuya. So she teaches him new techniques for his zanpakuto. Renji then meets up with them and requests that he also learns. After awhile, back in the Seireitei, Rukia's execution in near, but Renji meets with Byakuya and tries to tell him not to execute Rukia. He refuses, and they begin top fight. Renji put up a good fight against his Captain, but was beginning to lose the battle. Renji took Byakuya by surprise by unleashing h a Ban Kai, which only Captain level Soul Reaper should know. Renji's zanpakuto is called Zabimaru. Byakuya struck back by unleashing his Ban Kai, which overwhelmed Renji and was defeated. Rukia's execution was about to occur, then suddenly the blade to kill her stopped and Ichigo took her out of the device. Everyone, including Rukia, was surprised to see him. She yelled at Ichigo saying she told him not to come, but he just held her and stayed silent, anticipating his long awaited battle against Byakuya. They battled on the roof of the execution building and they seemed evenly matched. Byakuya finally unleashed his Shikai which was no match for Ichigo's newely found speed. Byakuya was getting annoyed and released his Ban Kai, which was over powering Ichigo, but Ichigo had more new tricks than just his speed. Ichigo yelled Ban Kai, and Byakuya fell silent, hinking that only Captains could use Ban Kai, there was no way a substitute Soul Reaper could achieve the level of Ban Kai. Then smoke filled the air, and Ichigo stood in the middle dressed all in black and wielding, not his huge sword, but a skinny pitch black katana. Ichigo moved and was faster than ever before. He was so fast, Byakuya's Ban Kai couldn't keep, but still, he was putting up a good fight. Soon Ichigo and Byakuya were at their limit. Ichigo staill ahd more than Byakuya and won the battle. Ichigo thought he had saved Rukia, but then, three Soul Reapers revealed there true intentions. Captains Sousuke Aizen, Gin Ichimaru, and Kaname Tousen, said they were betraying the Soul Society and they were in command of an army of Hollows, and they wielded a power to destroy the Soul Society, the Hogyoku. The Soul Society would now have bigger problems to deal with and they will need all the help they could get, including the help of a substitute Soul Reaper and his friends
