Orihime Kurosaki (nee Inoue) is the tritagonist in the anime/manga series Bleach. She is a childhood friend of Ichigo Kurosaki (Johnny Yong Bosch) and also his love interest (later girlfriend and wife), as well as a student at Karakura High School. She is the younger sister of the late Sora Inoue (Liam O'Brien), the youngest daughter of Mr. Inoue and Mrs. Inoue, the sister-in-law of Karin and Yuzu Kurosaki, the mother of Kazui Kurosaki, and also the daughter-in-law of Isshin Kurosaki and the late Masaki Kursaki. She is voiced by Yuki Matsuoka in the original Japanese version of the anime, and Stephanie Sheh, who also voices Hinata Uzumaki (nee Hyuuga) from Naruto franchise in the American English version of the anime, Sailor Moon from Sailor Moon franchise, and Julia Chang in Tekken series.


Orihime is a teenage girl of average height. She has brown eyes and long, waist-length, burnt orange hair. Her most noticeable physical trait is her slender yet curvaceous figure for a teenager, especially in terms of her large breasts. She wears her hair in bangs tucked behind her ears with hairpins, which she only removes to sleep, as they are worn in the memory of her late older brother Sora Inoue. Orihime initially wears her hair with a full but parted fringe before pulling most of her bangs behind her ears as she was ready to leave for Soul Society, a change noted by Tatsuki. Seventeen months after Aizen's defeat, Orihime's hair becomes fuller and wavier. Her bangs naturally frame her face without her hair clips and also hang over her ears. She stops wearing her hair clips and instead keeps them clipped onto the left collar of her school uniform.


Orihime has a very bubbly personality. She is very sweet and is a good friend to almost everyone. She can be clumsy and she sometimes shudders or blushes when she is around Ichigo but started to be more comfortable around him. Her crush on Ichigo started to turn into pure, unconditional love for him. When she was leaving to Hueco Mundo, Orihime almost kissed Ichigo's sleeping form but couldn't bring herself to do so and she tearfully confessed her feelings for him. She is somewhat jealous of Ichigo's and Rukia's relationship and she confessed to Rangiku Mastumoto about how she felt bad for thinking that way and that she cares so much for both Ichigo and Rukia and that she should be happy. She is known to invent some of the strangest foods with the combinations of different condiments, in pretty much everyone's disgust. When it comes to situations in which it involves her friends, she does whatever she can to get strong enough so that she would not be a burden to them and tries to protect them.
