Nozomi is a mysterious young woman who is being pursued by rouge Shinigami Kageroza Inaba.
To escape persecution from the Gotei 13 and prevent the destruction of his research related to Project Spearhead and Reigai, Ouko Yushima split his soul into two separate entities: Kageroza Inaba and Nozomi Kujo. Nozomi rejects Kageroza/Ouko's plans of revenge and the eventual remerging with Kageroza and flees to the World of the Living where she is found by Kon, who befriends her along with Ichigo and his friends.
Nozomi is a supporting character from the anime series Bleach created by Tite Kubo. She is an anime-only character who first appeared in episode 317 "Unusual Incident in Seireitei?! Gotei 13 Invading Army Arc!" Her character in the Japanese series is voiced by Hisako Kanemoto.
Nozomi's Zanpakuto is named Arazomeshigure (退紅時雨)
The sealed form of Nozomi's Zanpakuto resembles a normal katana. It has the ability to absorb the spiritual pressure of attacks, whether they be Zanpakuto based or not, and store it within the blade. When absorbed the spiritual pressure changes to a bright purple color.
Arazomeshigure's Shikai form is triggered with the phrase, "Rain Down". Its physical appearance is that of a standard sword with a cross-like shape at the pointed edge of the blade with the spiritual pressure absorbed radiating from it in a similar cross pattern. In this form, the stored spiritual pressure can be released in a powerful attack.
