A 15 year old boy named Ichigo Kurosaki, a Karakura High School student, has a unique ability to see and talk with ghosts that are in his town. He later meets up with a Shinigami (死神, Death Gods, Viz Media translates it to Soul Reaper) named Rukia Kuchiki. In a dire situation, as Rukia is struggling to slay off a powerful Hollow (a dangerous lost soul), the badly injured girl intends to lend Ichigo some of her Shinigami powers, but is astonished to find out that he has drained almost all of her power. With Ichigo's new-found Substitute Shinigami powers, his adventure has begun; fighting to protect his friends and family from hollows.
As time passed, and because Ichigo drained Rukia's reiatsu (霊圧, literally means spiritual pressure), she wasn't able to return back to her world, Soul Society (尸魂界 (ソウル·ソサエティ), Sōru Sosaeti). Her superiors became suspicious of her activities, started an investigation into her dissapearance, and then later found out what she had done. The Central 46 (the government of Soul Society) signed an arrest warrant for Rukia's capture and arrest at all costs. She is later captured by her brother, Byakuya Kuchiki, Captain of Division 6, along with his Vice-Captain, Renji Abarai. Ichigo then loses his Substitute Shinigami powers at the hands of Byakuya during his failed attempt of rescuing Rukia from her captors. When he hears that Rukia is going to be executed for her crimes, Ichigo makes it his goal to restore his powers and save her with the help of Kisuke Urahara, along with his friends Yasutora Sado (Chad), Orihime Inoue, and Uryū Ishida.
