Reading all the posts about FB powers, while I hope we don't see Ichigo using these powers, I don't think Kubo will throw away all these concepts out of the window. I like Ichigo so far in this arc. He looks powerful and all business. Can't wait to see him arriving in SS. What would be the reaction of SRs? More importantly, where are the other potentials?
@Reaper1183 & 0Xellos welcome to MH. I hope you'd like your stay here.
I guess VR isn't afraid of the bankais of shinigami like Renji or Ikkaku, can it be that they devised a bankai stealing method to specifically seal Yamamoto's bankai because it's a gamebreaker? Once there's a way, there's no reason why they wouldn't use it on all the shinigami to make their life easier but it seems to me that strong members of Sternritter can hold their own against the bankai of Gotei captains. Depending on Quilge's position in VR ranks, even current form of Ichigo's bankai seems to be manageable, I wonder if the sole reason why VR went to such great lengths to seal bankai is because VR leader witnessed the power of Yamamoto's bankai 1000 years ago and he thought they couldn't win the war against such immense force.
That may be so,but Rukia says that Ginjou only stole the tiny fraction of Ichigo's Shinigami powers that had merged with the thing called "Fullbring",thus why I believe that despite Ginjou having stoled his Fullbring,the ability to Fullbring and the reiatsu of Fullbring had already merged with his Shinigami powers deep inside.I'd rather not believe that the Fullbring arc was utterly useless since Ichigo is back with a normal Shikai / Bankai.That would be crap.Especially since in his new design he has X on his chest,armwrists,a collar on his neck.It shows that the Fullbring has affected his Shinigami powers,and by affected I mean fused with his Shinigami powers.Originally Posted by 0Xellos
Now that's a VERY interesting theory imo,so the Shikai and Bankai are actually just "manifestations" of his reiatsu,and by Bankai he releases his whole reiatsu.But to be honest,I kinda doubt this would be the case.I am sure that in the future we will see Zangetsu(if not,a new Zanpakutou maybe).Originally Posted by aymanxa
Well we'd both better keep our opinions so that at least one of us could be right in the end
^ his shinigami looks different because it has some strains of the fullbringer left in his body

the biggest mystery remains why cant the quincys seal or capture ichigo's bankai?
i assume it has something to do with him being a substitute shinigami as opposed to a normal shinigame, or perhaps it has something to do with some training he experienced along the way
either way i must say kubo is making bleach interesting again, i have been a big fan of this war so far, and now more than ever, SS needs kurosaki ichigo
For once the fact that Kenpachi doesn't have a Bankai is a good thing. It will be interesting to see how they react to him with is full power released.
is pretty obvious why they cant steal ichigos Bankai. Zangetu and Hollow Ichigo are fused making them Shinigami/Hollow the badge was made to steal Shinigami bankai not meant to steal both Shinigami and Hollow thus blocking the medalization of ichigos bankai. and liek Tenza said if ichigos loses one power he loses the other. so is either take both or take none at all.
btw,if urahara and ichigo are about to leave hueco mundo,I think the possibility for grimjow to be alive is doomed now,don't you think?
Yeah, we probably won't see him... unless there's a plot twist and the fight moves from SS to HM
