found some moon translations- I wonder if any combinations of these will be incorporated into the new name- (IF there is one.)
age of the moon -getsurei
crescent moon- gengetsu, jougen, mikadzuki, engetsu
cutter-katta-, kirite, setsudanki
full moon - mangetsu, mochidzuki
half-moon - hangetsugata, hantsuki, hanrin, hangetsu
harvest moon - chuushuunomeigetsu
moon- getsuei, mu-n, hisakata, shichiyou, tsuki
moon viewing - kangetsu
Ok kidding, but nevertheless, check the video if you want to drop jaws.
Well at least not if it has to be more awesome than his current Cutting Moon name/symbolism.
Engetsu is cool with the crescent moon and all, but Isshin already have that, this name business is quite tricky isn't it... urgh..
maybe the name will stay the same, but we are in store for a new move, like combining the getsuga tenshou, with bright or white moon- like Kagetsuga tenshou.
to incorporate the white, of his quincy, into his getsuga tenshou.
Idk if anyone said this already but... Shingetsu... new moon... NO?
Kurogetsu or shirogetsu since 'zangetsu' is all white now and did we ever learn of the ichigos hollow name ?
well, ichigos hollow name has been all but confirmed to be zangetsu, that is waht will change, he will get a new shinigamy/hollow power and the old man will teach him quincy stuff.
with that said maybe you could consider that ichigos zan was never a true zan, it didnt have ANY of ichigos own talents, only a mash up of stuff he inherited from other people, remember that ichigo never recieved an asauchi, which he is geting now, i think that means that he will keep kis old powers but add his own personal talents to it, because of that it will no longer be zangetsu, but probably something similar.
my point is that ichigos shinigamy powers where up till now just what he inherited from white, plus his fathers talents, plus his traits inherited from his mother (from ywach), they didnt have is own "self" in them, but now they will.
A spacetime/blackhole type would be awesome.
I'm hoping that it's something special and not another laser-beam shooter.
I think the name will be the same, but the appearance and power will change.
I agree it will either be the same or it really was Tensa Zangetsu
moon shadow. I think itll be very similar to zangetsu but this time he will have multiple techniques. I always felt that it was strange how zangetsu only had getsuga tensho... well now we know why since its not a full shinigami sword.
I believe the most important point is that Ichigo will say farewell to the avatar of Zangetsu he knew and learn about the real avatar. After accepting it, I think he will acquire new techs and also this might change a bit the appearence of his Zanpaktou, as well as it's colour, since his avatar is white and in his inner world his Bankai was white as well.
In this aspect, Hollow Zangetsu is pretty much the same as Muramasa, a hollowfied zanpaktou always requiring souls to feed himself and grow stronger and evolve.
Shirosaki explained the relationship between beings who share a body but have distinct wills. The stronger one is the one that makes the calls. So what we have is that zangetsu and shirosaki are the ones that make up the bulk of ichigo's powers. As long as zangetsu was the stronger one he defined the shape of the power ichigo had (so zangetsu looked like zangetsu) while as long as shirosaki was the stronger one he was the one who defined the shape of ichigo's powers (hence how ichigo fought bankai shirosaki a while back). So that means that while zangetsu was the stronger one he had unilateral control over ichigo's shinigami, human, quincy and hollow powers. If shirosaki is stronger then he has control over all types of powers ichigo has. Zangetsu is not a zampakuto per say but the shinigami powers ichigo was using while zangetsu was in charge were the ones he was drawing from shirosaki so those were in fact ichigo's shinigami powers. Zangetsu looks like juhabach probably because quincy powers come from juhabach however that does not mean zangetsu is the enemy, foreign or the bad guy.
