Ichigo Kurosaki has always been able to see ghosts, but this ability doesn't change his life nearly as much as his close encounter with Rukia Kuchiki, a Soul Reaper and member of the mysterious Soul Society. While fighting a Hollow, an evil spirit that preys on humans who display psychic energy, Rukia attempts to lend Ichigo some of her powers so that he can save his family, but much to her surprise, Ichigo absorbs every last drop of her energy. Now a full-fledged Soul Reaper himself, Ichigo quickly learns that the world he inhabits is one full of dangerous spirits, and along with Rukia, who is slowly regaining her powers, it's Ichigo's job to both protect the innocent from Hollows and to help the spirits themselves find peace.

Won the 50th Shogakukan Manga Award in the Shounen category.

Don't get me wrong, I was IN LOVE with this manga, it was amazing, they had this whole diabolical plan set in motion behind the scenes and turned one of the nicest guys ever, into the most evil but amazing villains ever. This manga was great from the beginning to end of the Aizen Saga, it would've been the best ending to the manga if they had ended it off with him being unable to see ghosts or, have it 20 years later with him having his Shinigami powers back like Isshin did but instead Kubo chose to go a different route, and that's where it went down hill. In this review I won't give it a terrible rating because I don't like that one arc, it looks the part of a great manga, and is moderately entertaining (I would've given it a 5 Star rating if it wasn't for the decline in story). After the Xcution thing, he decided to pull this crap with Ichigo having all 4 major "races" in his blood which is ridiculous in my opinion. I commend him for making this new and final arc a step up above but there are a few flaws that I see. This was a great manga but since Kubo decided to continue it in such a poor way, it had a decline in quality in my opinion.
