Ichigo Kurosaki
Ichigo Kurosaki is the primary protagonist of Bleach, orange-haired high school junior Ichigo is forced to become a substitute Soul Reaper after unintentionally absorbing most of Rukia's powers. His cynical nature at first makes him ill-disposed towards the duty, but with the passage of time he comes to accept and welcome the strength his Soul Reaper powers give him, as it allows him to protect those close to him. When creating the manga series, Kubo commented that Rukia Kuchiki, the first character he created, did not seem like a lead character, so he created Ichigo to be the series protagonist. In the Japanese series, he is voiced by Masakazu Morita while in the English adaptation he is voiced by Johnny Yong Bosch.

Inoue Orihime

Orihime Inoue is a long-time classmate of Ichigo, closely linked to him by mutual friend Tatsuki Arisawa. She is effectively an orphan, as when she was 3, her older brother Sora left their abusive parents' home with Orihime and raised her on his own, later on, when Orihime was in middle school he died in a car accident. Though initially devoid of spiritual powers, she develops spiritual awareness early in the plot and later obtains one of the strongest powers in the Bleach universe, a god-like ability to reject fate. She is voiced by Yuki Matsuoka in the Japanese series and by Stephanie Sheh in the English dub.

Yasutora Sado (Chad)
Yasutora Sado, better known as Chad, is one of Ichigo's friends at school. He is a biracial Japanese/Mexican student who towers over his classmates. Despite his imposing appearance he is quite meek, and refuses to fight unless it is for the sake of another. Chad does not have awareness of ghosts at first, but this changes when he witnesses a group of children being attacked by a hollow. He discovers a unique ability that strengthens and armors one of his arms, enabling him to fight hollows. He later develops the ability to shoot energy from his armored arm. Hiroki Yasumoto voices him in the Japanese series Jamieson Price in the English adaptation.

Uryū Ishida
Uryū Ishida is a Quincy; descendant of a line of priest-like hollow-hunting archers who were historical enemies of the Soul Reapers. He bears a deep grudge against all Soul Reapers, including Ichigo, and is an early antagonist in the series. He comes to view Ichigo differently over time, however, eventually becoming a valuable ally and friendly rival. He is voiced by Noriaki Sugiyama in Japanese and Derek Stephen Prince in English.

Keigo Asano
Keigo Asano is a classmate of Ichigo Kurosaki. He is an extremely hyperactive character and often uses overly dramatic movements and words to act out his feelings. As such, he is primarily comic relief, acting as an antithesis to his usually calm friend Mizuiro Kōjima. Keigo appears to be a shallow character at first glance, with a passion for slacking off. Indeed, he takes great pride in not making it to the honors roster in his class and labels those who do so "traitors" (including Ichigo and Chad). Like many of Ichigo's friends, Keigo is spiritually aware, though he dismisses many of the peculiar things he sees as shootings for a TV show. He has yet to display any unique abilities, save blocking one of Rangiku Matsumoto's attacks. His parents are never seen, however he does have an older sister, Mizuho. In the Japanese version he is voiced by Katsuyuki Konishi, while in the English adaptation Yuri Lowenthal is his voice actor.

Mizuiro Kojima

Mizuiro Kojima is a classmate of Ichigo Kurosaki. He has a boyish face and gentle manner of speaking, with a marked fondness for older women. He is apparently very successful with these women, once going on a vacation to Hawaii with ten girls. In an omake chapter of Bleach, Mizuiro is revealed to have had very few friends prior to entering junior high school. He then has a change of fortunes and has since found a niche of people to hang out with, most commonly Keigo Asano. Like many of Ichigo's friends, Mizuiro is spiritually aware, though he has yet to display any unique abilities. Jun Fukuyama voices him in the Japanese series, while in the English version he is voiced by Tom Fahn.

Tatuki Arisawa

Tatsuki Arisawa is a classmate of Ichigo Kurosaki and the best friend of Orihime Inoue. She has known both since she was young, sparring with Ichigo in their karate classes and defending Orihime whenever people picked on or bothered her. Tatsuki is very tomboyish, displaying few feminine traits and even ranking as the second strongest student in her age group in all of Japan. Apart from being spiritually aware, Tatsuki can sense Orihime from almost anywhere, even across dimensions; she is able to sense Orihime when she travels to Soul Society, but remarks that she can not sense her presence after Orihime is taken to Hueco Mundo. She is voiced by Junko Noda in the Japanese version and Wendee Lee in the English dub.

Isshin Kurosaki
Isshin Kurosaki is the father of the Kurosaki family. He is initially portrayed as a silly, fight-loving father who takes a keen interest in what his children are doing. He shows them affection either offensively or with an all-too-happy tone, which elicits comical reactions from his kids, usually in the form of a kick. Later in the series he reveals himself as a former Soul Reaper, regaining his powers after twenty years so that he can avenge his wife's death by killing Grand Fisher. It is unclear what he did while he was a Soul Reaper or why he left, it only being implied that he was captain-level by the piece of captain's robe worn over his shoulder. He seems to be aware of the goings on in the spiritual community such as Sōsuke Aizen's actions, and that Ichigo has become a Soul Reaper. Isshin was planned to be a Soul Reaper from when Kubo created chapter one of Bleach, but his position as a Soul Reaper captain came later, as the concept of Soul Reaper officers was invented much later." Toshiyuki Morikawa is his seiyu and Patrick Seitz is his English voice actor.

Karin Kurosaki
Karin Kurosaki is the fraternal twin of Yuzu. She is typically cynical and sarcastic, and is significantly more assertive and aggressive than Yuzu. Karin is a no-nonsense kind of person and so does not hesitate to kick her father in the head when she thinks he is acting unreasonable. Karin's tough exterior results from her mother's death; because she could not be useful around the house like Yuzu, she resolved never to cry so that she would not burden her family with her personal troubles. Like Ichigo, Karin is spiritually aware, though she initially chooses to ignore the spirits she sees. When dealing with hollows herself (typically in omake chapters) she uses her prodigious soccer talents to deliver powerful blows to weak hollows. She is aware of Ichigo's Soul Reaper powers, and tells him of this, but Ichigo decides to act as if he does not know what she is talking about. Rie Kugimiya voices her in the Japanese series and Kate Higgins in the English adaptation.

Yuzu Kurosaki
Yuzu Kurosaki is the fraternal twin of Karin. She is more soft-spoken, empathetic, and emotional in comparison to her sister. She takes care of the housework, such as cooking meals and tidying up the living space, on a daily basis. She has a deep affection for Kon, calling him "Bostov". She is unaware of the fact that he is alive, and much to his chagrin frequently dresses him in feminine clothes and glues unwanted accessories onto his body. Yuzu has a weak level of spiritual awareness, only being able to see faint outlines of spirits. As such she tends to get upset when her Soul Reaper brother, Ichigo, disappears, being unaware of where he is going or what he is doing. She is voiced by Tomoe Sakuragawa in the Japanese series and by Janice Kawaye in the English version.

Jinta Hankari
Jinta Hanakari is a small, red-haired boy who is supposed to do manual labor for the shop, such as cleaning. Instead he usually slacks off and forces Ururu to do all the work. Though he frequently bullies her, he does care for Ururu as he recovers her body after she is injured by an arrancar. Though he is more knowledgeable than one might expect given his young appearance, he is still childish, calling Renji Abarai a "moocher",and he enjoyed teasing, spitting and drooling on Ichigo when his Chain of Fate was severed and Ichigo was becoming a hollow in a incapacitated state. Jinta seems to have a crush on Yuzu Kurosaki, calling her "The Goddess" and regarding anything she gives to him as sacred. His primary weapon is an oversized iron rod, similar to a Tetsubo, which he can use to attack. He is voiced by Takako Honda in the Japanese version and by Jeannie Elias in the English dub.

Ururu Tsumugiya
Ururu Tsumugiya is a meek, black-haired girl who mostly does manual labor for the shop. She uses a multi-barreled shoulder cannon as her weapon, which can turn into a rocket launcher to deal with powerful opponents. Ururu's meek attitude is somewhat at odds with her fighting ability, which is undefined, but quite high (Urahara vaguely mentions that her fighting ability is at an "anti-Soul Reaper" level). Her punches and kicks have a lethal amount of force and far surpass what is capable of most characters. She seems to respond robotically when injured or when hollows are nearby. During such times, Ururu seems to take on a rather simplistic view of right and wrong; she considers those that cause harm (relative to her) as enemies, and believes that enemies must be eliminated. She is voiced by Noriko Shitaya in the Japanese version and by Wendee Lee in the English version.
