Bleach Cosplay: Orihime Inoue (Umi Kani) Cosplay 24 JUL 2012

Chilean cosplayer Umi Kani (known in real life to her mother as Katherine Ramos) puts together a beautiful cosplay of one of Tite Kubo’s premier female characters from the pages of Bleach, namely the lovely Orihime Inoue.

Orihime Inoue is a fictional character in the anime and manga series Bleach created by Tite Kubo. She is a classmate and friend of Ichigo Kurosaki, the main character of the series. Like many other friends of Ichigo, she quickly develops spiritual powers of her own after Ichigo becomes a Soul Reaper. Through the series, Orihime learns about Ichigo’s duties as a Soul Reaper and decides to accompany him when he goes to Soul Society to save Rukia Kuchiki.

Besides the manga and anime series, Orihime has also appeared in other media from Bleach including video games and animated films. Orihime’s character has been highly popular between readers of the manga since her introduction, having ranked high in all of the characters popularity polls of the series. Additionally, various pieces of merchandising have been developed based on her appearance such as figurines and key chains. Publications from manga, anime and other media have also commented on her character with most praising her traits and development in Bleach.

In terms of personality, the busty Orihime is friendly, humorous, sensitive, and kind. She comes off as naïve and rather clueless, which is at odds with her exceptionally high marks in school. She has a tendency to rush into situations without thinking, sometimes leading to embarrassing or even dangerous consequences. She also tends to have an overactive imagination and gets carried away thinking of implausible scenarios, such as initially fantasizing a date with Ichigo, later ending into her becoming a boxing champion prior to being shot.

Her hair is worn long in honor of the promise Tatsuki Arisawa once made to protect her.
