What Makes Her Pure Good?

  • When her deceased brother Sora turns into a Hollow named Acidwire and attacks first Tatsuki, then Ichigo when he comes to defend them, she learns that this happened as a result of his spirit getting angry over her praying to him less and less over the years as a result of her friendship with Tatsuki and her crush on Ichigo. While she is initially horrified that her brother could do such things, she sympathizes with him to the point of that she steps between him and Ichigo, which causes her to get wounded by his attack. She then hugs him and apologizes due to feeling like his corruption is her fault, which in turn, causes Sora to feel great remorse, allow himself to be purified by Ichigo's Zanpakuto and move on to Soul Society.
  • She defeated a Hollow named Numb Chandelier and saved the lives of many students.
  • She helped Ichigo and his friends save Rukia, who was about to be executed in the Soul Society. She made the choice to risk her life to save Rukia despite knowing how dangerous it could be, especially for her due to her lack of prowess in combat compared to some of the others.
