Character Height/Weight Comparisons  
A few of us started discussing relative height/weight of some of the Bleach characters -- specifically Renji -- just because it's hard to tell in a lot of the panels. I figured the info had to be out there, started looking and found it on Bleach Exile. If you're interested, here's a handy link: Bleach Characters Info

Some of the things I discovered...

Of the characters with known info (none of the Arrancar or Vizored have official stats so far), at 188 cm (6.16 ft) Renji is one of the tallest human-sized characters in Soul Society. (FYI, his weight is 78k/171 lbs.) This excludes characters like Komamura and Jidanbou. If you consider Omaeda "human-sized", he tops out at 210cm (6'8") which is taller even than Zaraki at 202cm (6'6"). Other than that, only Shunsui at 192cm (6'3") is taller than Renji, tho both Ukitake and Isane are within a cm of his height. Incidently, Renji is the same height as Don Kanonji. :-)

As for the Karakura crowd, Chad at 197cm (6'4") dwarfs pretty much everybody. Ishida comes in at 171cm (5'6") and 55k (121.5 lbs) while Ichigo at 174cm (5'7") and 61k (134 lbs) is a bit taller/heavier.

Just thought I'd share those interesting tidbits. If you want info on other characters, just click the link. They're in alphabetical order.

I would have thought that, yeah, but apparently Omaeda is taller. Not nearly as scary, tho. Also, they may not be counting Kenpachi's hair. ;-)

I suspect that anything Kenpachi lacks in height, he makes up for in presence and attitude.

Ishida is 5'6 but his dad is 5'10 and 149.6 lbs so he has some hope. Of course, his grandpa was 114.4 pounds and 5'3 so genetics might be a wee bit sketchy.

Inoue Orihime is only 99 lbs and 5'1? How is that even possible?
nehalenianehalenia on June 25th, 2008 03:44 am (UTC)
At 15, it's most likely that Ishida and Ichigo haven't stopped growing yet so yeah, they'll probably get taller.

As for Orihime... inflatable boobs?
dungeonwriterdungeonwriter on June 25th, 2008 03:50 am (UTC)
Yeah, they have three good years of growing and maybe even a forth. Lucky them.

Snicker...they don't list Rangiku's weight...wonder why?
nehalenianehalenia on June 25th, 2008 03:53 am (UTC)
She probably threw a fit when they asked her, and went off on them about how they should never ask a lady her weight.

That or she forgot to fill out the paperwork for the office physical. Captain Hitsugaya swears she said she filled it out a month ago.

Yachiru still has the best seat in the house... Damn...

Renji would be around 6'3 (188 cm) inches tall, which means Aizen Sousuke 6'2 (168 cm). Ishida is concluded to be the average height for most women being close to 5'5 (171 cm) and Ichigo being the average height for most men being 5'7 (174-175 cm) XDDD
dungeonwriterdungeonwriter on June 25th, 2008 03:51 am (UTC)
Yeah but both Ichigo and Uryu aren't finished growing, their dads are 6'1 and 5'10 so they will be tall.
deathlike on June 25th, 2008 04:37 am (UTC)
Not necessary... Some people stop growing when they reach 18, some continue to grow until 23 years old. Some people born with drawfism tend be shorter than the average height of other people... As for most part, Asians tend be shorter than most people in the West.

LOL i am the same height as Ishida but I outweigh him by about 15lbs! teehee...

Lol! It's always weird to find out the height/weight stuff with anime characters 'cause they're usualy far shorter than expected. Cultural thing, I know. XD

*is 5'8" - which is as tall if not taller than most shounen hero's*

And I agree, Ichigo and Ishida aren't done growing yet.
(Anonymous) on June 25th, 2008 02:30 pm (UTC)
I totally agree with you. I always do expect them to be taller - which, admittedly, probably has to do with the fact that all the men in my family are tall and broad shouldered.

I'm 5'8" too. It's good to know that with a pair of 4 inch heels I can totally look down Ichigo's shirt.
Kim!: Scaryface! :Dspartydragon on June 25th, 2008 07:08 pm (UTC)
Same here. ^-^

And... that's a good idea! XD

Oh my geekery, I have a file with character stats since forever XD So here's a spreadsheet for a more handy comparison of height/weight: in GoogleDocs. If I'm not mistaken it's taken from one of the databooks. And they do say Matsumoto's weight, which is total bull because I'm 1 cm shorter than her and 1 kg lighter, so by Kubo biology I should have at least an F-cup.

Oh cool! Thanks for posting this! I wonder about these things from time to time. I think Ichigo has grown a lot in recent months because he often seems within a few inches of Renji in a number of their panels together, whereas Uryuu still seems small. At 15/16 we could expect a really noticeable growth spurt from Ichi now.

BTW I've known a number of girls who are just over 5' but under 100lb, so it isn't that odd. Plus Hime has a tiny frame (if not chest). ;)

It's not listed there but Zangestu is 200cm so he can be added to the tall-lads list :D

Gah! I could've sworn it was Renji who was 6'4 but it was Chad. I was going off my memory of the character profiles Kubo wrote at the volume ends. It's funny but Kubo doesn't play down Chad's height--the dude is walking erect all the time (like in the calendar spread) while Renji is always swooping down, bending over and slouching to talk to someone.

Ichigo does look like he's been growing up since Bleach began but Ishida hasn't. He's got such a LANKY frame and so much to grow into.

I remember Orihime being that little. If you look at her next to Ishida or when he's carrying her she's tiny. That's why the "I'm so heavy" remark was supposed to be funny when Ichigo picked her up. She's only heavy in comparison to Rukia.
nehalenianehalenia on June 25th, 2008 07:41 pm (UTC)
He's still quite a bit taller than Ishida, plus he's got that extra 50 lbs and a more muscular build. He could still pick Ishida up and spin him around if he chose (dared) to do so.

The height/weight differential between Chad and Ishida, however, does explain why Chad can pick him up and tote him around without any problem or complaint.

Jeez Rukia is little, like "toss me" little. I'm heavier and taller than most of the female cast...and Uryu, lol.
(Anonymous) on June 25th, 2008 10:55 pm (UTC)
I agree entirely. XD
♀*La Muerte Chiquita*♀la_kalaka on June 25th, 2008 11:21 pm (UTC)
Well, I have the same height as Rukia xDDDDDDDDD and my bro who is the tallest at house is even shorter than Ishida (his height is 1.68 mts) xDDDDDDDDDDDD

*oh-oh don't toss meeeee, kyaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!*

*goes flying*
shulynn on June 26th, 2008 04:19 am (UTC)
I find it funny that Hitsugaya i even smaller than Rukia in both height and weight. XD
(Anonymous) on November 11th, 2008 06:49 pm (UTC)
WOW! does that mean im taller and heavier than Hitsugaya?!?!?! i feel so sorry for him now!
(Anonymous) on November 11th, 2008 06:52 pm (UTC)

(Anonymous) on October 16th, 2009 09:24 pm (UTC)
