The chapters of the Bleach manga are written and illustrated by Tite Kubo. In Japan, they have been published in Shueisha's Weekly Shōnen Jump since 2001.[1] The plot follows the Soul Reaper Ichigo Kurosaki who is in charge of slaying Hollows, evil spirits that attack people. He also encounters former Soul Reaper Sōsuke Aizen, who created an army of powerful Hollows called Arrancars to destroy the Soul Reapers' organization, Soul Society.

Since Bleach‍ '​s premiere, over five hundred chapters have been released in Japan. Most chapter names are in English and have katakana above them to indicate how they are read in Japanese, similar to furigana ruby characters used with advanced kanji characters. In addition to the main series chapters, some chapters are published with a negative chapter number. These "negative" chapters are side stories and consist of events that precede the start of the series.[2] An anime adaptation, produced by Studio Pierrot and TV Tokyo, premiered on TV Tokyo on October 5, 2004 and ended on March 27, 2012.[3][4] North American licensor Viz Media has been serializing the individual chapters in Shonen Jump since November 2007 in the United States.[5]

The individual chapters are collected by Shueisha in a series of tankōbon volumes, which include a poem based on the cover character. The first volume was released on January 5, 2002.[6] The latest volume is 63, released on May 2, 2014.[7] Viz Media released the first volume on June 1, 2004;[8] as of August 5, 2014, 61 volumes have been released.[9] The company released a hardcover "collector's edition" of the first volume with a dust jacket on August 5, 2008, followed by a box set on September 2, 2008, containing the first 21 volumes, a poster, and a booklet about the series.[10][11] A re-release of the series under the label of "3-in-1 Edition" started on June 7, 2011;[12] as of May 6, 2014, eight volumes have been released.[13]

Revealing that he feign loyalty to Aizen, having vowed to kill him for nearly killing Rangiku ages ago, Gin reveals that misled Aizen on what how his bankai works and leaves him for dead while taking the Hōgyoku. However, still bounded to the Hōgyoku, Aizen evolves into a new form as he easily cuts Gin down. Seeing Ichigo a different person now, Gin dies in peace while content with what he had done. Although Ichigo easily overpowers Aizen as they take their fight outside Karakura, having discarded his spirit pressure for physical strength, Aizen evolves into a hollow-like creature. Although Aizen renders Ichigo's left arm useless, Ichigo uses the last resort technique that he learned from Tensa Zangetsu: The Final Getsuga Tenshō. Ichigo uses the attack with the knowledge that its use will cost him his Soul Reaper powers as he defeats Aizen. Though Aizen survived and was about to kill the weakened Ichigo, he finds himself reverted to his human form by the Hōgyoku no longer acknowledging him while engulfed in a specially made kidō "Seal" that Urahara planted on him. Ten days later, after Aizen has been sentenced to Muken for 20 millennia, Ichigo gradually begins to lose his Soul Reaper powers. Before being unable to see Rukia, Ichigo says his goodbyes to her.
