Note: This article is written by Constantin, one of the fans of Mangahere, and we post this for a better communication for our fans or manga lovers, so the points of this article has nothing to do with Mangahere.
Although Rukia is the heroine of BLEACH, she is in the lowest position in all main characters of the13th Division. In terms of that she is the adopted daughter of Kuchiki family, which is a noble family, it is so incredible!
She should be in higher position. But she looks like a walking-on because of her low position. However, in later series, we finally find out that actually her brother, Kuchiki Byakuya, made an agreement with captain Ukitake that keep her in such a low position to protect her.
Rukia is always regarded as a weak role, but in fact, she is not. The reason why people think so is just that Rukia rarely fought against a rival at her level, except the bald of special episode and a weak arrancar, all her rivals are at captain's level.
On the other hand, Rukia's zanpakuto belongs to ice zanpakuto, and she is not good at swordsmanship, so her fighting depends on the power of her zanpakuto. However, due to the particularity of ice attack , her attacks is useless to those who have higher spiritual pressure, so she is restrained. But in terms of ability, Rukia can fight against shiba kaien alone and distract her by using shiba kaien's face.
While Abarai Renji and Ishida Uryuu joined together but still were totally defeated by the 8th Espada , who is even not a fighter. There is no doubt that Rukia has the ability of a seated officer, and even vice-captain class. And there is more powerful evidence that she can fought against Rangiku calmly in special episode.
In terms of her personality, the character setting of Rukia is not in the set pattern like those in other shonen manga, which dominates for a long period. What she has done in human world fully shows her intelligence, wackiness, bravery and strong will.
She secretly lives in the Ichigo's closet, which she decorates with many interesting stuffs excitedly; she reads horror manga and learns the modern Japanese; she struggled with how to drink bagged juice and then threatened Ichigo with smile: " I will kill you if you told others." To some extent, Rukia is not an ordinary girl.
Of course, she is indeed not a young girl any more. Maybe because her real age is very old, she is mature and gives us a kind of experienced and practical feeling. Her words is always right to sort of cruel, though her rightness often is overturned by the vexatious of Ichigo.
While as a shinigami, Rukia has a strong responsibility sense. It's admired that she always want to rescue the ordinary human's lives, even that will sacrifice her own life.
In Soul Society arc, Rukia, who was a very popular heroine because of her outstanding personality, once fell into the strange circle of "the heroine of shonen manga should be a delicate flower and waits the hero to rescue her" like the female leads.
However, once she is recovered, she will come back to the battlefront immediately, and what's more, she always cheers Ichigo up at the right time when he is depressed for his power insufficient. From this point, Rukia knows Ichigo better then anyone.
Actually, Rukia should be, so to speak, the most special character in Bleach manga. She has double identities of protege and comrade. She and Ichigo have a special tacit understanding with each other. But this kind of tacit understanding has nothing to do with love. They are not lovers but more than friends.
When Ichigo went to Soul Society and she talked to him. Kon said: "why you are talking like a couple of lover!" Compared with Orihime, whose good feelings for Ichigo is obvious, the relationship between Rukia and Ichgo is more like comrades.
This kind of relationship between the male and female is rarely seen. What's more, this special relationship also makes Rukia totally different from the female leads of other manga and become a very special and remarkable existence. While this kind of female lead is just the ones we are looking forward to.
