Bleach (stylized as BLEACH) is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Tite Kubo.

His new-found powers force him to take on the duties of defending humans from evil spirits and guiding departed souls to the afterlife and set him on journeys to various ghostly realms of existence.
The TV anime adaptation by Studio Pierrot aired on TV Tokyo from October 2004 to March 2012, spanning 366 episodes.
