Ichigo is a tough high school student who has gained the various abilities of a shinigami. He is incredibly powerful, though the source of his sheer strength is somewhat of a mystery. He tends to delve into fights with his ‘attack first, think later’ attitude and though he has always had a tough guy image, Ichigo is exceptionally protective of those close to him, and will always risk his life to save them. Ichigo’s sword, Zangetsu, is different from most other zanpakutou in that not only does it lack a hilt, but also it constantly exists in its released state.

I see a lot of "Ichigo has no goals" conversation going on, and I find that to be a slight misconception. Ichigo may not have a grandoise goal, such as wanting to become the leader or a ninja village or finding his long lost father, but does everybody have to be as ambitious as that? I'm coming up on 30 and find the fact that he "has no goals" to be much more interesting as I am re-reading the story. For some of us, all we can do to keep the lights on, put food on the table, and just survive day to day; childhood dreams just stay a happy memory for us, not something to pursue in a headstrong manner. Ichigo could be the same way. He lost his mother at a young age and was thrust into being a Soul Reaper in his early teenage years, that would turn a lot of people in his shoes jaded. Maybe all he has in him is just defend the people he cares about and make sure they can keep going on day to day. He isn't my favorite Bleach character, but I like him more and more as I get older when I think about his motivations this way.

IMO Bleach has no story and he is the most boring MC in anime out of facts

I don't understand why people say he doesn't have a goal. Isn't his goal to protect his family and friends? Simple goal but it makes a lot of sense for his story and character.
