leave it to kubo to leave us guessing right before the jump goes on break
i am dying to know what is going to happen in renji and ichigos training, the different traiing methods that ichigo goes through in the various arcs is one of my favorite aspects of bleach, because we get to see how he becomes stronger or learns new abilities
My how I'll chuckle if Ichigo defeats the zanpakutō with quincy abilities...
he has shikai.
he has bankai.
he has shikai getsuga tenshou.
he has bankai getsuga tenshou.- one form of getsuga tenshou he can hold and wrap around the blade. the other flies off in an energy arc.
he has his hollow mask.
he has hollow getsuga tenshou.
- all other hollow powers he has or might have, he has never used while aware. in other words, the cero he never used while he was himself, only when the hollow took over. so I dont think that counts as a new power.
then he has becoming one with zangetsu, -- final form. and the FGTenshou. -
he basically has no moves. hes only got the getsuga tenshou in varying strengths depending on his overall state of shikai, and bankai, or bankai with mask.
he has no demon magic, he does not speak with his zanpaktou hardly ever, to learn more about it or get new battle tactics or moves.
Just what new abilities are you referencing?- stronger getsuga tenshous? or the ability to go bankai and get a stronger getsuga tenshou?
--- I say no way..-- lol. Ichigo is a getsuga tenshou spammer.
--- now we did get a new trait- but I dont think he used it willfully, it just sorta happened. and that was the blut vene. -- more of a defense than anything, and Im not sure how much that will help him going forward- to me it seemed more of a plot device to confirm that he did have some quincy juice in his blood.
Since Zangetsu is a combat-type zan, even having an energy blast is good. A lot of combat-type zans only have a peculiar shape to get an advantage in the fight. Elemental types are good at having many forms, for example.
Is it too much to ask for Ichigo's final form to be be able to fire a cero? His dangai form at least should have been capable of doing that. Honestly, if ichigo is some kind of perfect mix of a human with fullbring abilities, and shinigami with hollow capabilities AND a quincy, its gonna be pathetic if all he do is swing a sword.
I'm just hoping he doesn't use too much of his quincy powers to be honest. I'm hoping Kubo will cut back on the amount of things he gives Ichigo.
I'm alright with Ichigo just getting Blut Vene and Blut Arterie without the other stuff (sorry can't spell them...too lazy to search).
It comes to mind that the Black Getsuga Tenshou was pretty much taught to him by Hichigo, or rather he was the first to use it. Before that Ichigo's techniques were White reiatsu based, almost the same colour as Quincy energy.
I thought of Ichigo's fight with Kuchiki and we see him go Bankai for the first time. He stands pointing his sword out to Byakuya and a burst of energy fires out the tip. This was not a slash as we have seen on countless occasions. This was a directed blast of White reiatsu right at Byakuya......... Just like Quincy fighting techniques.

Maybe his Quincy abilities have always been there, they just got ignored.
The manga kinda blatantly states that ichigo always had quincy abilities. Ichigo didn't get his quincy abilities from kirge, rather absorbing his reiatsu made ichigo remember his moms power or something which in turn resulted in the awakening of those abilities he had all along. Ichigo has had quincy abilities for as long as he has had any other power as far as we know. I do wonder why it took so long for them to awaken though. Or why didn't zangetsu say anything for that matter? Perhaps his quincy abilities were sealed so as to not have him get those powers too early and for him to relate more to shinigami?
no sign of spoilers?? there is gonna be a chapter this week right?
Asmodan, do you have to remind me of those times when Ichigo looked like he put some muscles on, instead of that stick-man we are presented nowadays. ^^ Design and esthetics, I know already.
