maybe because black is the Shinigami color?
ikkaku: normaly he has a golden/yellow color reiatsu, in his bankai its purple/red with black
ichigo: normaly he has a blue/white color reiatsu, in his bankai its black with red (while in hollow form) and white/blue with black in his normal bankai
byakuga: normaly he has a pink/white color reiatsu, in his bankai its more dark like purple
renji: normaly he has a red color reiatsu, in his bankai it turns darkred.
however since ichigo did achieve his vaizard form it seems his reiatsu color changed permanent to red with black.
Byakuya and grimmjow wasnt surprised by his getsuga tenshou only about that ichigo (as shinigami) pulled down a mask on his face witch he did not know about, the 4th espada was also very surprised about this. this means that the arrancar and about all shinigami dont know about the vaizard, so its naturaly that they are very surprised by someone using a hollow mask.
the normal shinigami clothes consist of black, it isnt the prime shinigami color.Quote:

Byakuya's reiatsu turned white when he fought Ichigo in the end, though. But I kinda see what you're saying
Hey if you ask me,(which I'm sure everyone has) I believe what people often base their ideas of characters on is the design of the character. What i mean is when you think about about it, the average shonen characters of look and act little wacky and strange (naruto's jumpsuit, luffy stetching, Jio's...everything).
But when it comes to Ichigo, he dresses somewhat cooler normally, when he's in shinigami form, he looks like a cool black samurai, in bankai form he looks like a samurai/neo from the matrix and it's amazing. And his layed back "cool" attitude and which differs from the "shonen" always smiling, go get em' attitude makes him seem a little cooler and different.
I do like that about him, but when it comes to winning and over coming his battles, he's very unreliable now, well since the fight byakuya, he hasn't really overcome anything...So I'm siding with luffy in a fight, but ichigo still looks cooler.
so what #4 could catch up to Ichigo in Bankai form
better put bankai speed wasn't much help for Ichigo even against #6
and even with Bankai and mask Ichigo could not even scratch #4 ....
so I don't see how time would help Ichigo...thing is Tite does let Ichigo win
I certainly don't like him. And for someone who everyone brags about progressing rapidly, he sure sucks and maintaining his Vaizard form.
Yeah, pretty much. It's like he can't progress in things that rule, but he's terrific at crappy things like having the lamest Bankai ever.
It's really hard to feel for him as a person, or have faith in him as the protagonist.
I think it has more to do with Kubo not wanting a character who could clean house. If Ichigo could walk in HM and kill all the Espada, then what good is it to watch? People want a challenge and some story rather than some hero that can walk on people.
Though I do agree Ichigo is a little too weak and should possibly have more of abilities.
Also one could argue Ichigo always has to fight against really strong people and never gets a break.
Ichigo pretty much cleaned house during SS arc. Now he's on the recieving end in HM. He needs to get the hell out of there without Inoue. But from the latest chapter, it's gonna be tough. I dont think he's over-rated per se, just inexperienced and hasteful.
Yeah, I was about to say. He just walked through SS before, and won every fight my just believing in himself. And Kubo has really screwed the story up now, because there's plenty of other guys who are stronger than Ichigo now that could just as easily be the protaganists now. I am of course referring to the Vaizard. If this whole manga was about them, I'd love Bleach again.
