Cleaning up the afterlife -- one spirit at a time!


R to L (Japanese Style). Cleaning up the afterlife -- one spirit at a time!

Ever since he was little, Ichigo Kurosaki has been able to see the spirits of the dead, so when a teenage girl materializes through his bedroom wall, this should be no call for alarm. Rukia Kuchiki is a shinigami, a member of the mysterious Soul Society that is charged with capturing rogue ghosts, and is hot on the trail of an evil spirit. But in the ensuing confrontation, Ichigo absorbs Rukia's powers, giving him the ability to not only see the undead, but to fight them as well. Now this 15-year-old high school student begins a brand new vocation: hyperkinetic, all-purpose ghost-busting. With enough attitude to make a grown ghost blush, Ichigo and crew are taking on the after-life one ghoulie at time.

The book starts with Hitsugaya confronting Gin. Hinamori appears before Hitsugaya. Hitsugaya thinks that Hinamori will help him but she tells him about Aizen’s last note. Hitsugaya tries to convince her that Aizen would not say something like that but Hinamori doesn’t think straight. Hitsugaya knocks her out and fights Gin. They both stop soon after since Hitsugaya’s assistant captain Matsumoto appears and saves Hinamori from Gin’s attack. Later, it shows that Ichigo still hasn’t achieved bankai and that Rukia’s execution has been moved to the next day. Rukia is thinking about her past and trying to strengthen her resolve. She thinks about how she killed a best friend of her past. The ex-assistant captain to her squad. That man was Kaien Shiba and he was one of Rukia’s idols. She comes to the conclusion that she is not worth shedding blood over. Kenpachi frees Uryu, Chad, and Ganju so that they can help him find Ichigo. Kenpachi is stopped during his search by Captain Tosen and Captain Komamura. Ikkaku and Yumichika take the two assistant captains away. The fight begins. At the end of the book Renji is stopped by his captain, Byakuya, on his way to saving Rukia. 3/5. @GOATreviews of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board
