· After obtaining the abilities of a Soul Reaper—a death personification comparable to the Grim Reaper—from another Soul Reaper, Rukia Kuchiki, the tale chronicles Ichigo Kurosaki’s stunts.
· His newfound unique qualities lead him to take on the roles of protecting humanity from evil spirits and guiding the souls of the dead to the afterlife.
· The anime adaptation contains original narratives not present in the book with recurrent appearances and scenarios, including these original characters.
· When Rukia Kuchiki, a Soul Reaper, cannot complete her responsibilities after engaging in battle with a powerful Hollow, a 15-year-old high school student named Ichigo Kurosaki steps in as a substitute Soul Reaper ( Shinigami, meaning “Death God”).
· He begins removing Hollows in Rukia’s place, despite his initial reluctance, and realizes that numerous of his friends and batchmates are spiritually aware and have their powers during this time:
· When Rukia is condemned to death in the human world and dragged back to Soul Society’s spirit world, Ichigo enlists the help of Kisuke Urahara and Yoruichi Shihan, two exiled Souls Reapers, to allow himself and his companions to save Rukia.
· After Ichigo and his companions defeated many Soul Reapers, it got revealed that Sasuke Aizen, a high-ranking Soul Reaper, falsely accused Rukia of the crime and had been illegally experimenting on Soul Reapers and Hollows.
· Aizen intends to take over Soul Society via the Hgyoku, a legendary substance that can transform Hollows into half Soul Reapers, considerably enhancing their abilities.

· Espadas are commanders in Aizen’s army, and each has its group of Arrancars who are weaker. The Espada, along with Aizen, Gin Ichimaru, and Kaname Tsen, is equivalent to Soul Society’s Gotei 13 Soul Reaper commanders in terms of strength.
· When Aizen eventually arrives in Orihime, he confesses that her captivity was only a ruse to allow him to seize Karakura Town, which has the spiritual energy required for the Oken.
