The sword-wielding afterlife adventure just got bigger with this collection of Bleach volumes! Reads R to L (Japanese Style), for audiences T Containing volumes 1, 2 and 3 of Bleach! 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 protect the innocent from Hollows and help the spirits themselves find peace. The paranormal action-adventure begins now!
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! Orihime has been kidnapped by the turncoat Soul Reaper Aizen and his terrifying Arrancar, and it’s up to Ichigo, Chad and Uryû to rescue her. But the Arrancar world, Hueco Mundo, has many surprises in store for the heroes…not the least of which is how much it will change them!
