Part-time student, full-time Soul Reaper, Ichigo is one of the chosen few guardians of the afterlife.
Ichigo Kurosaki never asked for the ability to see ghosts—he was born with the gift. When his family is attacked by a Hollow—a malevolent lost soul—Ichigo becomes a Soul Reaper, dedicating his life to protecting the innocent and helping the tortured spirits themselves find peace. Find out why Tite Kubo’s Bleach has become an international manga smash-hit!
Yhwach’s invasion of the Soul Society has led its defenders to make some strange alliances, with Ichigo and his friends finding common cause with some of the Arrancars. And Soul Reapers who normally wouldn’t have anything to do with each other now fight side by side as Kenpachi and Mayuri take on a truly monstrous Quincy. And because war brings changes to all, Mayuri’s dutiful daughter Nemu is compelled to act in defiance of her father—even if it becomes the last thing she ever does.
