Masaki Kurosaki was a Quincy and a minor character in the manga/anime Bleach series. She was the wife of Isshin Kurosaki, and the mother of Ichigo Kurosaki, Karin Kurosaki and Yuzu Kurosaki. In addition to being Isshin's wife and Ichigo's, Karin's and Yuzu's mother, she was also the mother-in-law of Orihime Inoue, and the paternal grandmother of Kazui Kurosaki.

She is voiced by Sayaka Ōhara in the Japanese version of the anime and by Ellyn Stern in the English version, and she was portrayed by Masami Nagasaki in the 2018 live-action film.

Personality

Masaki was described by Ichigo as being the center of the family's universe.

She was a very good woman and was always cheerful since Ichigo mentioned that he never saw her get angry or sad.

Ichigo's female friend, Tatsuki, also mentioned that whenever Masaki came to pick Ichigo up from his classes, he would always have a big smile on his face.

Masaki with her husband and children

During her life, Masaki greatly enjoyed spending quality time with her husband and children. She was very protective toward her children, and she even risked her own life to protect her son when he was trying to rescue a girl by the river. This trait was pasted down to her son which gave Ichigo the determination to protect those he loves.

History

Masaki as a teenager

Masaki was born on June 9.  

When she was a teenager, her parents died leaving her to be an orphan thus becoming the last member of the Kurosaki family. She was eventually taken in by Ryuken Ishida's mother so that she would be protected as one of the last Quincy so that one day, she would marry Ryuken Ishida to keep the Ishida bloodline pure and keep the Quincies from becoming extinct. Her adopted mother had scolded her at least once because of her slow training progress. One day, Masaki sensed a Hollow fighting with a Shinigami named Isshin Shiba, so she rushed over to rescue him and allowed the Hollow to bite her before she managed to kill it in front of him. Masaki and Isshin subsequently meet for the first time and ask for each other's names.

Years later, Masaki married Isshin Shiba, and nine month later, she give birth to their first and only son, Ichigo. Four years later, she gives birth to twins girls, Karin (the second daughter) and Yuzu (the third daughter).

After Karin and Yuzu were born, her eldest son Ichigo took martial arts classes at 4 years old so that he can become stronger and protect both his mother and sisters. Masaki always came and picked up Ichigo from his classes.

On June 17, one month before Ichigo's tenth birthday, Masaki was picking her 9-year-old son up during a rainstorm and Ichigo noticed a girl near the river as if she wants to jump in. Ichigo let go of his mother's hand and ran over to save the girl, with his mother running after him and yelling him to stop until everything went black. Ichigo woke up to find his mother on top of him severely wounded and dead, with Ichigo not knowing what really happened to her.

Ichigo on his mother's lifeless body

Every year on June 17, the Kurosaki family would visit Masaki's grave to pay her their respects.

Six years later, it was revealed that Masaki was killed by a Hollow named Grand Fisher who kills children (women in the anime), and that the girl was actually Grand Fisher's antenna bait to use as a lure for his victims.

Trivia

  • Since White passed on to Ichigo, Masaki was actually no longer in danger from her soul self-destructing from a Hollow infection.
  • Only Ichigo really remembers her; Karin and Yuzu were too young.
