The story opens with the sudden appearance of Shinigami Rukia Kuchiki in Ichigo Kurosaki's room. She is astonished at his ability to see her, however their discussion is quickly stopped by the presence of an "Empty", an evil soul. After Rukia is seriously injured while attempting to save Ichigo, she proceeds to give a large portion of her powers to Ichigo so as to give him a chance to face the Hollow on equal ground. Ichigo rather unintentionally retains just about all her powers, permitting him to defeat the Hollow without breaking a sweat. The following day Rukia shows up in Ichigo's classroom as an apparently ordinary Human, and educates Ichigo that his acqusition of her powers has left her stranded in the Human World until she returns to her normal self. Meanwhile Ichigo houses Rukia in his home and assumes control over her role as a Shinigami, engaging Hollows and managing lost souls to Soul Society.
After a couple of months of this plan, in the sixth volume of the series, Rukia's Shinigami bosses translate her vanishing as renunciation, send a order to capture her, and sentence her to death. Ichigo is not able to stop Rukia's catpure, however with the assistance of a few of his comrades who likewise have profound powers and ex-Shinigami Kisuke Urahara, he embarks for the Shinigami base, placed in the afterlife death domain known as Soul Society. Once there, Ichigo and his friends fight against the elites of the Shinigami military, and are at last fruitful in stopping Rukia's execution.
It is then uncovered that Rukia's execution and Ichigo's salvage endeavor were both planned by Sōsuke Aizen, a high positioning Shinigami formerly a deathrow prisoner, as a part of a broad plot to take control of Soul Society. Aizen deceives his kindred Shinigami and partners himself with the Hollows, turning into the fundamental villain of the series, and Ichigo groups up with his previous adversaries in Soul Society in the wake of discovering that the following venture in Aizen's series includes the pulverization of the place where he grew up. The Gotei 13 unite to thrashing Aizen and the Arrancar yet are not able to stop Aizen in the Fake Karakura Town they made. Ichigo in the end massacres Aizen in Soul Society at the expense of his Shinigami powers. Right now, Bleach accounts Ichigo's endeavor to recapture his lost powers. As per Tite Kubo, the completion of the series is not yet written or composed.
