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 influence another???

Now, we know that a Zanpakutou is basically a reflection of the Shinigami's soul, but I believe that there may be an explanation as to how one Zanpakutou can possess similar abilities to another...

The first theory relates to Ichigo and Isshin; simply put, they're flesh & blood. Sure, Kaien is also related to Isshin, but they're not as closely related as father & son. Basically, I'm connecting similar Zanpakutou to similar DNA.

The second theory is a bit more complex, and relates to Matsumoto and Gin, and possibly Ichigo and Isshin too. The basis for this theory is the closeness of 2 individuals in terms of friendship. Have you ever been close to someone and found that their personality has rubbed off on you? Well, we know that Zanpakutou are influenced by their owners personalities, so in theory if 2 friends start to become alike, so will their Zanpakutou. In the case of Ichigo and Isshin, "the apple doesn't fall far from the tree", which may also explain their similar Zanpakutou.

So, what do you folks reckon?
