A quick question, something that has been on my mind for some time.... The differences and similarities between Shinigami and some of the other spiritual beings we're seeing.
First off, we see Shinigami using Kidou, and Quincy using.... spells. Have we ever gotten a title for what the classification of attack is that Ishida uses? I've heard some people call them "Destructive(?? 破壊 ??) Arts" rather than "Demon(鬼) Arts", but is this the right name? Also, if possible, what is the correct name, in its original Japanese (and romanji, for lame men like me ^.^).
Equally, while Shinigami use Zanjutsu, or Cutting techniques, what would the term be for Bow techniques? The best I can come up with is Kyuujutsu or Yumijutsu (not sure how 弓 would translate).... how off am I?
So, we move on to Hohou, or Movement Arts... We know the primary movement technique used by Shinigami is Shunpo.... Quincy use Hirenkyaku, and Arrancar use Sonido.... in all fairness, have we heard this category called anything else for the non-Shinigami, or just the names of the techniques?
Anyway, those are just my thoughts and questions.... any assistance would be greatly appreciated, since I've never seen the Bleach DB, and I do try to keep up-to-date on these japanese specifics (with both Naruto and Bleach, if I can ^.^)
I think that the different species all need to have similar abilties just so they could be on par with each other.
I don't think that a name was ever given for the bow techniques. Wikipedia has a lot of good information on Bleach, and it doesn't give a name for it.
GREEN, Your death's colour is Green. Death of the mind. Your heart is isolated within your mind. You seek knowledge. You are very rare.
Others' lifes is your salvation. Listening to people's problems is your way to escape reality. You have an extraordinary wonderful soul, but this soul is carrying the whole world in its shoulders. With your understanding restless nature, you are constantly looking for answers. ~~I carry the whole world on my shoulders~~
How does German fit Ishida? He's Japanese, and has been using Japanese for a while now.
I mean the demeanour. The Quincy seem to be quite proud and overbearing, which is stereotypical behaviour of the white-supremist olden-days Germans. To be fair, I'd compare it more to the southern states folks, now, save that Ishida doesn't seem to be inbred or play a banjo [/really, really bad stereotyping joke].
I simply meant that it fit his attitude, more than anything else. He thinks Quincy are superior.
