Rukia KUCHIKI main image

Rukia is the adopted sister of Byakuya and a shinigami in the thirteenth squad. She has a very close relationship with Ichigo as well as her childhood friend, Renji. Though she has a cool demeanour and is talented at both kidou and swordsmanship, she has absolutely zero artistic ability, which is often the subject of much mockery from her friends. Rukia's zanpakutou is Sode no Shirayuki, a pure white ice-type sword widely believed to be the most beautiful katana in soul society.

In shounen manga I swear there is always that female character that really can't do anything for the main character and has to be a burden for them for the entire series.

But Rukia is what made Bleach what it is by transferring her powers to Ichigo PLUS she actually got her spiritual powers back and has a really cool Zankaputo. She's amazing!!

She's the main reason I started Bleach, kept reading Bleach, and am still reading it today. Love everything about her--it's rare to find kickass female characters that AREN'T scantily clad and/or obvious fanservice.

Curious why she's so high on the list for Hated Characters, though. I thought haters for her were rare, but I guess not. Any dislikers care to explain why they don't like her? I'm genuinely curious. She's never struck me as annoying or anything.
