As far as the kurosaki name I have always had the theory that that is actually masaki's family name. The scene where ryuken meets ishin and ishin was surprised at being called kurosaki was always weird to me and ishin implied ryuken didn't always called him that. I don't see why being a member of the royal family would explain the similar zampakuto, even if that requires an explanation other than them being related.
next chapter will show yamamoto's defeat or even his death. then,to apologize with us for this troll,kubo will show what's happening in HM!
"Dangai" is the tunnel where the Spirit Train or whatever traveled through that Isshin aided Ichigo in becoming one with his zanpakuto. It's not a "mode" it's a place. I think what many of you prefer to say is "Jinzen" Ichigo or whatever. And "Jinzen" is merely the term for meditating with your Zanpakuto and learning everything you need to know about it as your powers increase. The Dangai was outside of time and that's why, Ichigo's Jinzen was complete in a mere hour versus in the real world, where it would've taken 2,000 years.
And if, Isshin used Jinzen, then so did Unohana, Shunsui, Ukitake and obviously the General Commander. So, if Ichigo can do this, so can they as well.
And the reason it was left in Ichigo's hands, is because he wasn't under Hypnosis and that gave him the advantage over Aizen to a certain extent. It's not to say that Ichigo will not eventually surpass the General Commander, but in his current state, no.
@Saint Markus- I agree with that. Jinzen is a technique that Hitsugaya was even speaking of. Just because Ichigo fused with his zanpakuto doesn't mean it's beyond anyone else. What woud be the point in fusing with it anyway? The shinigami have other duties besides being at war 24/7. Walking around wearing your bankai is useless until you need to kill someone like Aizen. Besides, the higher class captains have enough experience and skill they don't need to go bankai to take on strong opponents. Shunsui, Ukitake, Shinji, Urahara- all used a shikai in their fights. The younger generation are dependent on bankai because their skills aren't so developed. I think Byakuya could use shikai to great effect, but obviously bankai gets the job done faster.
On the thought of the RG, no one knows whether Ukitake Unohana Shunsui Yoruichi etc. could have been promoted there. Ginrei Kuchiki may be there, no one knows. They're promoted captains, that's all we know so far. Maybe in the kings realm they receive additional power granted by the Soul King? There's no reason to assume anything yet, we'll just have to see.
you can correct me all you want about the time thing, but Kubo is the one that wrote it that way, not me. So, your honestly going to disagree with the writer of the Manga...?. And if, Ichigo was a "genius among genisues" as you put it (laughing at that one) he wouldn't be stuck in jail right now. right...?.
And yes, Ichigo is a genius among geniuses when it comes to shinigami stuff. No one else was ever as quick as him to get that powerful... nobody ever came even remotely closed to his growth speed. That's what being a genius is.
Now you can relax.
But totally agreed that Ichigo took a lot of short cuts in achieving his power, short cuts which normal shinigami could never have accessed to (like the doll for Bankai). However, we have to consider that Ichigo achieved Bankai using the doll in 2 days, while a genius like Urahara, using the same method did it in 3 days. So I won't call Ichigo a genius among geniuses, but a lucky genius.
Dude everyone needs help to achieve something, Ichigo got help from his Dad and Urahara well because he was a kid and didnt even know the fundementals of being ashinigami, he was a brand new shinigami.Quote:
if you never had the help of your parents would you still be alive? the answer is no. So what if ichigo had help to achive bankai, no one helped him defeat Zangetsu and Learned Getsuga now did they.
Everything Ichigo learned and Achived has been all done by himself in his Inner world, no one has help him defeat or actually interfere with him defeating or learning anything From Zangetsu.

-Ichigo needed to communicated and materialize his zanpaktou spirit to achieve shikai and Bankai (short cutted by the help of urahara, Ichigo never properly communicated with Zangetsu unless he is forced to)
-Ichigo needed to defeat his inner hollow to gain access to vizard powers (helped by Shinji to access into his inner world, while the vizards try to contain the destruction of his physical body, without their help, he would have taken a lot of time to figure out what to do)
-> not trying to criticize Ichigo in any way, just saying that he's lucky to have the perfect conditions to achieve his power. (kind of like a footballer trained in Arsenal or Barcelona's facilities)
correct me if i am wrong, didn't Renji learned Bankai in similar amount of time?
