This has been bugging me for a while why those two look the same apart from the hair. This theroy hit me while i was watching the dub of bleach and than cheaked up on the manga.
There Half brothers or at least related. This is kind of backed up be karin and shibas little sister Kuukaku. They look almost identical apart from the age.
This might explain alot put who knows. Plz give you opinions
(shoot me out of the water if you like )
There are lots of people who think that Kaien and Ichigo are related in some way, and have thought so since Kaien was introduced. So it's not like you're theory is too out there to be shot down...
Personally, I don't think they are. It's fine if they just resemble each other--and besides, Ganju and Kaien don't look anything alike, so I doubt their looks are indicative of much in terms of lineage.
(By the way, when you say "yo-something", do you mean Yoruichi? Because she isn't Kaien's sister, and she definitely doesn't look like Karin. If you're talking about Kuukaku, who is Kaien's sister, then it makes more sense.)
Yes i though of that but having karin and kuukaku looking simiar as well is backing up the relation theroy.Originally Posted by gigantor21
^The most similar thing that bonds the three siblings together is their lower lashes. XD Also, another person who looks exactly like Kuukaku would be...Tatsuki!
Look at the way their hair looks. XD
Actually, the most intersting people are the Shiba clan. I've read this theory (no back-ups, of course. Merely speculations) in this fanfic I read. XD It seemed soo far-fetched, but it's really interesting.
Mind you, as I said, no back-ups, and nothing is canon. Just pure speculations and guesses. And...I'm jsut going to quote myself from another thread:
[br]Posted on: February 17, 2007, 04:06:02 PM_________________________________________________Another popular theory is that Ichigo is a reincarnation of Kaien. But that plot-device has been used much too often, plus I think latest developments prove otherwise.Quote:
But one thing that is quite interesting to note is this:
While Shirosaki (or Wichigo, or whatever Ichi's inner hollow is nowadays called) could be a bleached version of Ichigo, Ichigo himself could be the bleached version of Kaien.
Numerous reference have been put forward (and poked fun off) to Ichigo's hair colour. Thinking about it, it's like a bleach-i-fied version of Kaien's. XD But I seriously don't know where I'm going with this, so I'll just shut up. XD
Kaien is alive so THAT A NOQuote:
Which was why I said that I was going nowhere with that theory andXDQuote:
It was a nice thoery that lasted long enough butover-used. Granted, Kubo went for another. I swtill like the idea of Kaine and Ichi being blood-related though. XD
iam cry with fits of despair but we all have to see. If thats the case kubo is using generic chartacter designsOriginally Posted by Dragonzair
Well the thing is the biggest factor is Ichigo's dad. Isshin is a captain level shinigami and what's more no real head of the Shiba clan who looks like they should be has been introduced. Kukkaku is obviously the current leader of the Shiba clan, but she is in same generation as Ganju and Kaien (since they've always been refered as siblings). Biggest possibility is that Isshin could have been the head of the household as the father of the 3 Shibas, due to all of the resemblances.Originally Posted by mars0103
Thats want i think as well didnt put that in thoughOriginally Posted by Kazu-kun
but when ganju saw kisuke, he told him that he is the same as as his sister [kukkaku]Originally Posted by Kazu-kun
so i dont get how isshin could be their dad.
because kisuke and isshin are like, best friends too, so i expect their the same age too.
if i went along with your theory, i would suspect that isshin is another sibling to kuukaku, ganju, and kaien.
remember that conversation is from filler and thus cannot be cited for evidence. currently, i don't know what to believe. it is clearly not mere coincidence and i think we may get an answer somewhat soon as we now have the opportunity for the two to meet. who knows, maybe Isshin will show up and get the whole thing explained (i wish), though i think that we'll get the explanation from KaienOriginally Posted by alliexchan
There are actually 3 characters with the same face. Remove the tattos on Hisagi Shuhei's face and you've got Kaien. I wonder why no one ever mention him in those threads.
That I am pretty sure that is just a coincidence from the lack of variablity the manga drawing style gives for drawing faces sometimes. THe Kaien-ichigo relation though is actually mentioned in the manga between Ukitake and Byakuya after Ichigo drops down in an attempt to save Rukia, Ganju and Hanataro.Originally Posted by Rhan
