This Collector's Edition of Bleach volume 1 includes a special Shonen Jump 40th anniversary insert.
Hot-tempered 15-year-old Ichigo Kurosaki has the unsettling ability to see spirits who are unable to rest in peace. His sixth sense leads him to Rukia, a Soul Reaper who destroys Hollows (soul-devouring monsters) and ensures the deceased find repose with the Soul Society.
When she's injured in battle, Rukia transfers her sword and much of her power to Ichigo, whose spiritual energy makes him a formidable substitute Soul Reaper. But the orange-haired teenager isn't sure he wants the job: too many risks and moral dilemmas.
Story and art by Tite Kubo.
