  1. Theory Doesn't the sudden disappearance of Yachiru makes the theory that she is Zarakis Zampaktoo even more

    This theory has been stated many-many times but I think that it makes me 80% confident now that Yachiru.. was in fact Zarakis Zampaktoo materialized the whole time. Think about it : 1) Zarakis sees fighting as a game, and his Zampaktoo being a girl that plays games and has fun makes sense...

    Theory Nimaiya's Basis for Asauchi & Zanpakutou Manifestation

    Recently it's been stated that Nimaiya invented the Asauchi, which is used by Shinigami to manifest their Zanpakutou. So the question is, how exactly did Nimiaya come up with its construction? I'll also explain my theory on how this relates to Hollow Zanpakutou! The first thing I'll look at...

    Theory Influences on Zanpakutou: Ichigo/Isshin and Matsumoto/Gin

    Hi folks, I was watching episode 307 of Bleach (dubbed) where Gin turns on Aizen, and a thought occurred to me; the whole thing with Gin's Zanpakutou turning into dust kinda reminds me of Matsumoto's ability to turn her Zanpakutou into ash! So I had this crazy theory.....can one Zanpakutou...

    Theory Ichigo's New Zanpakutō

    Ok, I don't normally post in the Bleach section but since Naruto has been failing me for years and I've been hanging on to it like drug addict I thought I'd post a theory I had here. (Sorry if someone already mentioned this) So I've been thinking, and I'm pretty sure Ichigo's new Zanpakutō is...

    Discussion Can some Zanpukto's Owners change the abilities of said Zan's

    Okay basically the title says it all but i will elaborate. Unohana we know was not to long ago the captain of the healing division in the gotei 13, but we have recently found out she was the 1st kenpachi. The manga never mentioned if she had the ability to heal 1000 years ago, all that was...

    Why does Ichigo need an Asauchi-based zanpakuto?

    Of course, storywise it's a means of repairing his bankai, or at least giving it a more or less adequate shape, akin to how Mayuri "modified" his own broken bankai. There's also been a lot of exposition. We've learnt where zanpakuto come from (and even an answer to how Kenpachi got one), and...

    Discussion Possible name for Ichigos new Zanpakutou-

    I thought it might be fun to speculate on what new name ichigos zanpaktou will have after the reforging process. I personally think that the name will remain similar to zangetsu. I am thinking that Ichigos new zanpaktou will be called Zengetsu. 1.because he will finally be at peace or (zen)...

    Discussion Where is the ART in Zaraki's Training?

    As the title suggests- I am wondering Where is the ART in Zakarai's Training? the point of this training was to teach him the Art of killing. Unohana is killing him and reviving him until he reaches his unsealed former state that he had when he was a kid and could have killed her...

    How did Ichigo get his zanpakuto?

    Ok, as I understand it from the latest chapter the Zans are handed out by the Zan man in the Royal Guard. Now if this is true then Rukia once got her as well and when she stabbed Ichigo he got all of her power. This meant her Zan too right? But wouldn't this Zan be Rukias? Ichigo never went to...

    Aizen Sōsuke Discussion Thread

    Basically only making this thread so everyone who wants to say what they think on Aizen's strengths and weaknesses.... Hopefully now we can keep it to a minimum in the recent chapter discussion/prediction thread. Okay I'm going to start this by saying that i was never really a mega Aizen fan...
