Best Character Arcs In Bleach

Orihime Inoue


Orihime Inoue, the lovable deredere buddy of Ichigo, developed bravery, strength, and heroism during the course of Bleach. She was initially a “civilian” character that need protection from Hollows, but she later acquired great spiritual abilities and a more resilient mindset.

When she began battling alongside her companions, Orihime paid them back, and even in the face of villains like Ulquiorra Schiffer and Sosuke Aizen, she shown amazing bravery and tenacity. Even the bully Loly Aivirrne was terrified by Orihime’s heroic spirit and thought she was a monster.



Chad, a close buddy of Ichigo, is frequently ridiculed for being weak and losing his most crucial battles. Even Chad’s detractors cannot dispute that he had a strong character arc.

In the past, when Chad was living in Mexico with his grandfather and feeling frustrated and confused, he mistreated other people until he learned an important lesson about the actual meaning of strength. Since that time, Chad has become a heroic semi-pacifist who is fiercely devoted to his comrades. He also developed extraordinary Hollow-like powers.

Captain Sajin Komamura


Squad 7 Captain Sajin Komamura was introduced as a shady character who owed Yamamoto a lot of money. He also appeared self-conscious, with his face concealed by the helmet. Sajin never looked back when he gained self-acceptance and showed his wolf head.

Sajin’s story arc was all about friendship and accepting oneself. When he confronted the evil Kaname Tosen in the imitation Karakura Town, he stressed those themes once more. Later still, Sajin fully accepted the customs of his enigmatic tribe and surrendered his heart in order to engage the Wandenreich one final time.

Kisuke Urahara


Aizen falsely accused the eccentric scientist and Soul Reaper Kisuke Urahara of committing a terrible crime. And Kisuke reluctantly ran away and took refuge in Karakura Town. There, Kisuke discovered that he liked his new, simple existence and prepared Ichigo and the others to one day defeat Aizen.

Kisuke’s character journey gave him depth as a tragically gifted former Soul Reaper with a deadly dark side. But in the end, Kisuke was totally committed to good, and he demonstrated this by aiding the heroes in overthrowing Quincy in the concluding arc.

Rukia Kuchiki


Ichigo’s reverse-isekai heroine and tsundere Soul Reaper ally is named Rukia Kuchiki. She endured extensive suffering throughout her existence, beginning as an orphaned street child and continuing through her training as a Soul Reaper. When Rukia first met Ichigo, she was feeling lost and unsure of herself.

Rukia gained more knowledge about life on earth and gleefully accepted it. Rukia regained her powers and made peace with the Shibas following the Soul Society arc. As she killed Aaroniero, Rukia eventually overcome her grief and grew closer to Byakuya Kuchiki, becoming a little sister Byakuya could be proud of.
