Kurosaki Ichigo is the protagonist in the anime series 'Bleach' by Kubo Tite who is also known for the short lived series called 'Zombie Powder'.

Kurosaki Ichigo is fifteen years old with brown eyes and was once bullied for his strange orange hair, which he claims is natural. He has the unexplainable ability to see and interact with ghosts and spirits. This in turn leads to a chain of events which leads him into becoming a 'Shinigami' or 'Soul Reaper' and allows the story line of 'Bleach' to grow.

The interest in Ichigo stems from the fact he has an abnormally high spiritual energy which he cannot seem to supress, it is such a strong energy for a mortal that it is a reason he manages to get into places such as 'Soul Society' the central hub of the spirit world.

He wields a blade or 'Zanpaku-to' called 'Zangetsu', a physical manifestation of his spiritual energy which he can use to destroy the core antagonists in the story line, the 'Hollows'.
"You know why big brothers are born first? To protect the little ones that come after them." - Kurosaki Ichigo

A Vizard from Bleach. He is the main character. He uses his zanpakuto named Zangetsu meaning Cutting Moon. He has both shikai and bankai. His shikai is Getsuga Tenshou, a far-reaching slash made of reietsu. His bankai is Tensa Zangetsu.His bankai makes him much faster and greatly increases the damage of his getsuga tenshou. As a last resort, he can use Hollowfication. It puts a Hollow mask on him giving him the power of a hollow. This greatly increases his strength. However, if the mask is broken the power will wear off and once the mask is broken/taken off he will become exhasted.
