|“||Kurosaki-kun, you know I had a lot of things I wanted to do... I want to be a teacher... I also want to be an astronaut... and also make my own cake shop... I want to go to the sweets bakery and say 'I want one of everything'... Ohhhh, I wish I could live life five times over. Then I’d be born in five different places, and I’d stuff myself with different food from around the world... I’d live five different lives with five different occupations... and then, for those five times... I’d fall in love with the same person...||„|

|“||Maybe it's impossible to feel exactly the same way as another person, but it's possible for people to care about one another and to place their hearts as close together as they can manage. I'm sure that's what it means to make your hearts as one.||„|

Orihime Kurosaki (née Inoue) is the tritagonist of the anime/manga series Bleach. She is one of childhood friends of Ichigo Kurosaki (along with Tatsuki Arisawa) and also his love interest (later girlfriend and wife), as well as a student at Karakura High School.
She is voiced by Yuki Matsuoka in the Japanese version of the anime and by Stephanie Sheh in the English version, and she was portrayed by Erina Mano in the 2018 live-action film.
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 studders 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.
- Orihime bears a resemblance to Kyrie of Devil May Cry 4. Similarities include both being voiced by Stephanie Sheh, having the same hair color and personality. The Arrancar dress she wears resembles Kyrie's dress.
- In the live action film, she is portrayed by Erina Mano, but Sheh still reprised her role as her for the English dub of it.
- She has also been known for spinning a leek, which ended up becoming a meme called Leekspin.
