Take Bleach. Subtract editors. Add 4chan. Mix well and sprinkle with bad dice rolls at the worst times, social links, mystery box powers, and Ichigo being the biggest Clueless Chick Magnet the world has ever seen. What you'll come up with is Bleach Quest, GM'd by Cosgrove.
It all begins when Ichigo Kurosaki fights a group of delinquents for a little ghost girl. Now, this is easy. It took him about a page in canon. Here, he screws it up. In fact, he screws up so badly that he actually dies, and has to become a Shinigami to bring himself back, much to Rukia's shock. It all spirals more out of control from there, as enemies are forced to step up their game, filler arcs aren't waiting for pauses in canon, and events twist and turn unexpectedly.
Join Ichigo Kurosaki and his motley band of his school friends, Shinigami, and miscellaneous supernatural beings as they blunder into the middle of a centuries old conspiracy and proceed to cause massive upheaval because you do not mess with the True Companions.
Not to be confused with the other Bleach Quest.
- Above the Influence: Ichigo refuses to take advantage of Hinamori's distraught state after being Hollowified by Aizen.
- Adaptational Angst Upgrade: Chizuru's parents all but abandoned her when she came out as a lesbian.
- Adaptational Badass:
- Ichigo's school friends get Fullbringer powers and join the True Companions. Chizuru also gets the Hogyoku implanted in her and becomes the Demi-Fiend.
- Ichigo himself gets a lot of his ridiculous power far earlier on in the story.
- Adaptational Heroism: Harribel, her Fracciones, Starrk, and Lilynette never end up serving Aizen because Ichigo gets there first. He also manages to talk Neliel away from serving Aizen.
- Adaptational Villainy: The Hogyoku is evil and ends up controlling Aizen.
- Ascended Extra:
- All of Ichigo's human friends, but Chizuru especially, as she and Ichigo bond and become quite the Heterosexual Life-Partners (or Homosexual Life Partners, in Chizuru's case). She's also the first host of the Hogyoku, and fights it with Ichigo.
- Momo Hinamori is sent to bring in Ichigo, is hollowified by Aizen, turns into a Visored with Ichigo's help, becomes a Love Interest, and is the one being rescued in the Soul Society arc, instead of Rukia.
- Authority Equals Asskicking: Hollows firmly believe this. When Ichigo meets Harribel for the first time, they have a fight to see who will have the duty of protecting who.
- Battle in the Center of the Mind: Fairly common. Momo vs. Her Inner Hollow and Chizuru and Ichigo vs. the Hogyoku are two prominent ones.
- Break the Cutie: Poor Momo is betrayed by Aizen in an even worse manner than in canon- she's given a hollowification agent and sent to Ichigo as an unwitting suicide bomber.
- Colliding Criminal Conspiracies: The events of the Soul Society arc, the Zanpakuto Rebellion Arc, and the first movie end up happening at roughly the same time.
- Demoted to Extra: Rukia doesn't get her powers stolen and leaves for Soul Society.
- Epic Fail: Happens on occasion. The story actually began when a series of bad dice rolls leads to Ichigo dying against a random street gang.
- FaceHeel Turn: Yoruichi is apparently on Aizen's side.
- HeelFace Turn: Neliel does one when Ichigo explains that Aizen's a bad guy. Aizen himself seems to have done one, and is serving as Ichigo's Spirit Advisor while his body is under the control of the Hogyoku.
- Let's Split Up, Gang: The group splits into two to investigate the two places Hinamori might have been taken. Uryuu leads one and gets through the 12th division fairly peacefully, never encountering Mayuri. Ichigo leads the other and ends up encountering Soi Fon and Zaraki, who get a look at his battle prowess and begin fighting over which of their divisions he'd join.
- One True Threesome: Eventually, between Ichigo, Momo, and Orihime. Momo eventually leaves to find her own identity.
- Power Incontinence: Chizuru can't control the power of the Hogyoku, necessitating Ichigo to take her through a Garganta so nothing in the Living World is destroyed.
- Running Gag: Not in the story itself, but the players have ImprovAizen (Aizen, except he isn't actually a chessmaster and basically everything he caused in the plot was on accident) and Bro!Gin (Aizen's best friend who helps him deal with the consequences of said accidents).
- In-story, there's Ichigo failing to sneak properly.
- Shout-Out: Chizuru's mutation by the Hogyoku turns her into, essentially, the Demi-Fiend.
- Take a Third Option: Whenever possible, Ichigo will do this.
- Winds of Destiny, Change: The Hogyoku has the power to swap its own rolls with Ichigo's.
- With Catlike Tread: The result of Ichigo's many failures at stealth rolls.
