    The Shinigami Academy

    So I was chatting with a friend about the academy and what classes they should be giving to new years and whatnot until it hit me...

    Do you think they teach you how to "fly" in the academy? I think they do...

    So here is the question:

    How do you think are organized the classes in the Shinigami academy?

    Like First years learn the LAW and how Central 46 and the Gotei 13 work (after all we know that SS without laws is like basketball without rules), also I don't remember well, but Aizen was giving a class to the students right? so what was that class about?

    I'll post what I think later, as I am bedriden with a flu (not aH1N1... I hope)

    Re: The Shinigami Academy

    At the shinigami academy I would presume they teach all the methods of shinigami combat, hoho, zanjutsu, kido, and hakuda. Flying is part of hoho, so yes, I believe they would.

    And I think there are the 4 combat-types of classes (such as the kido one when kira/renji/momo were training to do the red-orb of destruction attack, and then kira and renji were sparring in another). I don't really see the significance in having a law and government class here, though, it wouldn't completely blow me away.

    Re: The Shinigami Academy

    Caligraphy!!!

    then is safe to say that not all the classes have a lot to do with combat...

    Maybe they even have a History class >_> GOD being a shinigami student must be boring as hell

    It was mentioned in the Book of Souls that, Aizen Sosuke the traitorous reprobate, was missed by his Calligraphy students after his unexpected "departure."

    Re: The Shinigami Academy

    well in my opinion i dont think in the shinigami academy they teach hoho or hakuda because lets face it, every guy or gal in the gotei 13 aside division 2 and all the omnitsukidoh, doesnt know other way than zanjutsu or kidoh.

    So i would presume that the only cambat ways they teach are Zanjutsu and kidoh, since this academy is to form students, not only for one of the 3 corps (gotei 13, kidoushou and omnitsukidoh) but to be citizens of the seireitei, so that would explain why they teach caligraphy in the first place, remember that seireitei is also a city and being a shinigami is more of a title of nationality.

    I use to compare it with geeting the green card in USA, because the first step after you get there is know how to speak and write english, so Seireitei is like a USA and after you got there your english would be "the handling of reiryoku"

    So in my first theory i think it goes like this:

    the 1st and 2nd years are thought into laws, society, culture and other stuff like codes of etiquette, and proper ways to talk to others (well manners) while slowly introducing them into the combat part, then in the rest of the 3 years are for hard stuff about joining a task force, because joining one of the 3 is more like, optional

    I would like to do some kind of list of classes like:

    1st years:
    -caligraphy
    -etiquette

    and so, but im very bad at that

    Actually I could be wrong about this one but doesn't Unohana teach Flower Arrangements?

    @Chaoswind: Your schedule's pretty good but you've got to remember that their are years. In all likelyhood many classes can only be reached in later years.

    Well what I mean is that you can't take the most advanced classes until your in 11th or 12th grade.

    Like youc an only take AP classes later in highschool. I should think that the Shinigami Academy had something similar to that. I mean they woudln't expect a 1st year to take a class in getting a Shikai right?

    Re: The Shinigami Academy

    >_>

    That is what I did....

    Change the word Period for year...

    is just since we don't know how much time shinigamis spend in a "grade" we can label them as years, for all we know they could spend decades in it :P

    Ah okay I guess I misunderstood you.

    In my personal opinion though I think their are some classes that you have to take (Communicating with Zanpaktou, Basic Kidou, Swordfighitng). And then some electives that are optional(Caligraphy and Flower Arrangements+ Other stuff like Science in preperation for say the 12th division).


    Isn't it stated somewhere that its 4 years is how long a normal Shinigami is in school actually?

    Re: The Shinigami Academy

    Yeah, they may spend 4 to 5 years in the overall academy, but how much they spend in each grade? :P
