The story of Bleach is set in a world where spirits and humans coexist and follows Ichigo as he trains to become a powerful Soul Reaper and fights against various supernatural threats, including Hollows (evil spirits that consume the souls of the living) and other Soul Reapers who have gone rogue. Along the way, Ichigo meets and befriends a diverse cast of characters, including other Soul Reapers, Quincy (a race of spirit hunters), and human allies.
