Cover of the first tankōbon for Bleach, released in Japan by Shueisha on January 5, 2002

The chapters of the Bleach manga are written and illustrated by Tite Kubo. In Japan, they have been published in Shueisha's Weekly Shōnen Jump since 2001.[1] The plot follows the adventures of Ichigo Kurosaki, a teenager who accidentally steals the powers of the Soul Reaper Rukia Kuchiki and subsequently assumes her duties while she convalesces. Since that event, Ichigo has to fight hollows, evil spirits that attack people. He also encounters former Soul Reaper Sōsuke Aizen, who created an army of powerful hollow called arrancar to destroy the Soul Reapers' organization, Soul Society.

Since Bleach's premiere, four hundred chapters have been released in Japan. Most chapter names are in English and have katakana above them to indicate how they are read in Japanese, similar to furigana ruby characters used with advanced kanji characters. In addition to the main series chapters, some chapters are published with a negative chapter number. These "negative" chapters are side stories and consist of events that precede the start of the series.[2] An airing anime adaptation, produced by Studio Pierrot and TV Tokyo, premiered on TV Tokyo on October 5, 2004.[3] North American licensor Viz Media has been serializing the individual chapters in Shonen Jump since November 2007 in the United States.[4]

The individual chapters are collected by Shueisha in a series of tankōbon volumes, which include a poem based on the cover character. The first volume was released on January 5, 2002.[5] The latest volume is forty-six, released on August 4, 2010.[6] Viz Media released the first volume on June 1, 2004; as of June 1, 2010 thirty-one volumes have been released.[7][8] The company released a hardcover "collector's edition" of the first volume with a dust jacket on August 5, 2008, followed by a box set on September 2, 2008, containing the first 21 volumes, a poster, and a booklet about the series.[9][10]

Ichigo arrives and defeats the Hollow, allowing the young boy's soul to move on to the Soul Society, where he can rest in peace. Rukia gives Ichigo a special candy to allow him to leave his body, and another soul to take control of it, to transform into a Soul Reaper when she is not around. The new soul is faulty, however, and only aims to do whatever he wants, such as playing around the city. Ichigo finds and saves him from a Hollow attack. The soul is then captured by Kisuke Urahara, the shopkeeper who accidentally sold the candy to Rukia. He returns the artificial soul to the candy, which Rukia then takes from him and gives back to Ichigo.

  • Mayuri stabs Szayelaporro through his hand and heart and breaks the blade. Due to the poison he ingested, Szayelaporro suffers for what seems an eternity to him, resulting in his death. Kenpachi and Nnoitora exchange increasingly more devastating blows. Once Kenpachi realizes that he is on the verge of death, the captain uses both hands to deliver a massive fatal blow to Nnoitora. Orihime is again kidnapped by the Espada Coyote Stark and is taken to Aizen. Aizen explains that he only kidnapped Orihime to reduce the number of Soul Reapers in Karakura. This would allow him to destroy the town to create the royal key. However, Soul Society has created a duplicate of Karakura and switched with the original with Urahara's help. As such, Soul Society prepares their Soul Reapers to defend the duplicated Karakura. Ichigo goes to Las Noches again to save Orihime, who—this time—is alone with Ulquiorra.

With Uryū protecting Orihime, Ichigo uses his hollow powers to confront Ulquiorra. However, Ulquiorra releases his zanpakutō which increases his powers to the point that Ichigo is virtually helpless before him. As Ichigo refuses to give up, Ulquiorra makes a second zanpakutō release and blows a hole in Ichigo's chest. Uryū tries to fight Ulquiorra to give Orihime time to heal Ichigo, but when Orihime notes he is dead, she shouts for help, causing Ichigo's body to undergo a new transformation.
