"Gazing Mirage" follows the journey of Yuichi Toshikyo, a young man who awakens in the dangerous world of Bleach. But to his surprise, it isn't the world of Bleach he knows; instead, he finds himself nearly 110 years in the past of the main story.
Struggling to adapt to this perilous era, Yuichi fears for his safety. He despises being trapped in a time where formidable foes like Aizen and Yhwach roam freely. Realizing that he cannot rely on his knowledge of the future, he decides to fly under the radar, hoping to build enough strength to keep himself safe.
As he searches for ways to get stronger, Yuichi lucks out and gains admission to the soul reaper academy. Determined to survive and learn the ways of the soul reapers, he dives headfirst into rigorous training, all the while concealing his knowledge of the future from his fellow students and instructors.
Throughout his time at the academy, Yuichi faces challenges that push him to his limits. As he gains strength and hones his skills, he begins to understand that he has a role to play in shaping the future. But with the knowledge of the impending dangers from the original Bleach timeline, he grapples with the moral dilemma of altering the course of history. Yuichi must navigate the delicate balance between keeping himself safe and standing up against evil. The line between friend and foe becomes blurred as alliances are tested and betrayals unfold.
