Ichigo Kurosaki has always had the ability to see ghosts, but it is his encounter with Rukia Kuchiki, a Soul Reaper and member of the enigmatic Soul Society, that changes his life the most. While fighting a Hollow, an evil spirit that preys on humans with psychic energy, Rukia tries to lend Ichigo some of her powers, but Ichigo absorbs every last drop of her energy, much to her surprise. Ichigo, now a full-fledged Soul Reaper, quickly learns that the world he lives in is full of dangerous spirits, and it is his responsibility, along with Rukia’s, to protect the innocent from Hollows and help the spirits themselves find peace.
