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!
Ichigo has been hoping to put off dealing with his inner Hollow until after the Arrancar are dealt with. But it becomes horribly clear that he has no chance against Aizen’s new army if he doesn’t get his Hollow in line. Luckily, he’s met a group of ex-Soul Reapers called the Visored, who have harnessed their own Hollows. But can Ichigo really trust his new teachers?!
