Spoilers! 420!  


Bleach 420 Spoiler Thread at BA


What was I saying just yesterday about Ichigo mastering his many selves at a great price? This sounds damn spooky! Bandages and a similarity to Ulquiorra's second resurrection according to Ohana. Yikes. And even longer hair! I wonder how the fangirls will react to it being black--I do admit I've always had a thing for Zangetsu's long black locks. A dreamy tortured poet quality there.

Methinks we're up for some angsty Ichigo in months ahead....

Just copying by thoughts from BA XD

Considering what's going on here and the fact that Isshin has a similar zanpakuto to Ichigo and he too lost his powers once (was it the same way, I wonder?), does anyone think that maybe SS planned this? Maybe they knew about what happened with Isshin's powers and upon seeing Ichigo and his insane strength, made the connections to Isshin and thought they could kill two birds with one stone. Have Ichigo, who is supposedly the only one who hasn't seen Aizen's shikai, take out Aizen, while simultaneously losing his own shinigami powers. So that takes away one huge threat and another potential threat to SS. I wouldn't put it past SS to do this.

And T_T Ichigo. He's back to being powerless again. But he's doing it because he must. This explains so much about how he was acting. So stoic and calm with a hint of sadness and acceptance. In his eyes, this may be his last battle as a shinigami. I'm having flashbacks to every time Ichigo shouted that he's a shinigami. He was so proud of that part of himself. And now it's gone T_T OH ICHIGO :'(

I knew as soon as the word "FINAL" came up that there was a chance Ichigo might lose his powers--because the last time we heard "FINAL" form was when Ishida lost his...

but Isshin has his powers back and so does Ishida. All is not lost.

Just cue angst forEVER. SOB.

After this whole Aizen business is done Kubo, I'd like an Issin flashback arc please. Preferably with Ryuken.

CALLED IT! CALLED IT! Yay! And at the same time, a huge, resounding no. *cries all day*

Must...write...fanfic...about...Ichigo...missing...Rukia...



(And the Shiro/Ichi shippers will go crazy with this one.)

Now it's time for Guildy's poetry corner
Bandages and a similarity to Ulquiorra's second resurrection according to Ohana. Yikes. And even longer hair! I wonder how the fangirls will react to it being black--I do admit I've always had a thing for Zangetsu's long black locks. A dreamy tortured poet quality there.

Oh Jesus Christ. He's hit 16 and the long-delayed 'I am a serious and intense Gothic flower' phase has kicked in. God help us all. He's going to beat Aizen with THE TORTURED VERSE OF HIS SOUL.

*ahem*

Super-fast Bankai
Closing in
Smothering me
Black like
The very cockles
Of Thanatos
Chains weigh down
Like my guilty
Conscience
Long hair hides
My shame, black
As blackest midnight
As black as blood
The pain

Just a note to say ILU GUILDY.

Nooooooooooooo!
Ichigo no! Kubo no! Bad Kubo, bad!

For one thing; dont change the hero's looks like this. Ichigo! Your lovely orange hair:( Bad for the hero, bad for the fans..generally bad.

Secondly; it drastically reduces Ulquiorras chances of getting back, now that we have alot of "mini"-ulquiorras walking around (Zangetsu, Ichigo..hmm?)

The part where Ichigo was wondering why Shirosaki wasn't killing him or avoiding him if he was that much stronger than him made me remember the start of the IchivsUlqui fight (sins arc)
I was like "dude, you should have asked that to Ulquiorra! Would have saved one of your 9 lifes :/"

Ichigo with long black hair...I must have pictures nao! *_*
Also, whoever predicted that Ichigo was going to lose his powers a la Rukia is scary precise. :o
secila80secila80 on September 14th, 2010 01:49 pm (UTC)
Oh, Kubo, you spoil me. I wasn't expecting a flashback so soon. And to get right into it, instead of staring it off at the end of a chapter and making us wait a whole week. AND to fill it with such epicness. Yay! :D

It is interesting that Ichigo releases his shinigami power in the same way Rukia first gave him shinigami power. Moonless sky!!! Shiro! Shiro crying!!! Moonless sky!!!! I can't wait for the chapter to come out.

A dreamy tortured poet quality there.
I concur.
_debbiechan_: Rukia_debbiechan_ on September 14th, 2010 01:53 pm (UTC)

I know.

Moonless sky?

Biggest cue for RUKIA I've evah heard!

So. Deicide may not just be about killing Aizen after all. Consider the whole theme of the Vizard training arc - "The Imminent God Blues", "Tug Your God Out" - concerning Ichigo, his hollow, and the mastery of his power. Considering that Hollow Ichigo and Tensa Zangetsu are fused...we may be witnessing the death of more than one "god". The idea is doubly reinforced for me considering that Aizen, who proclaims himself to be a god, is facing down someone who surpasses even his own power.

Also staking ground on the wild conjecture that Rukia will have a hand in restoring Ichigo's power.

But anyway.

"Mugetsu" - Moonless Sky - after all this time that Kubo has waxed on the metaphor of the moon as a guiding light in the darkness, this attack really conveys a sense of hopelessness; an ultimatum in which there is no taking back. It strikes so deep it makes Tensa Zangetsu - the stoic teacher and guardian of Ichigo's soul - weep. Such a price Ichigo is paying to be a protector.

Perhaps the break between this and regaining his powers - cause he will, assuming no shenanigans by the Royal Realm - will be just what he needs to recollect himself, rest, and gain a little perspective.

it's green and tastes like licorice.: ichigorionarch on September 14th, 2010 02:33 pm (UTC)
Part of me is heart broken that he's lost his ability to save people but on the other hand...

It's back to the beginning now, isn't it? Ichigo has no choice but to depend on his friends too, their power gap is closing a bit, and so many other things.

From what we've seen characters with awe inspiring power have been very, very lonely. So, I'm kind of happy for him now.
peca_06peca_06 on September 14th, 2010 05:10 pm (UTC)
Me too. I'm sad, but at the same time, there is something that Ichigo can benefit from now and have some character devel. It is lonely at the top and putting all those burdens in his back was just not a way to live. It is time to let go of this "protecting" phase way too much and look forward to something else more fulfilling for him and his friends in the long run. It is going to be really sad still, because Ichigo worked extremely HARD to get his powers and to get to this point and it is a huge sacrifice T__T
sidonzo on September 14th, 2010 03:00 pm (UTC)
OK, I admit it...I'm a bit of a Shiro/Ichi shipper. I feel the urge to draw some shippy goodness now.

Sad chapter though. :(
(Anonymous) on September 14th, 2010 03:05 pm (UTC)
It's ironic in an almost poetic way that the protector is always the one being protected.

So wait...all those times that Shirosaki tried to take control of Ichigo was in order to protect him? I guess it makes sense during the Byakua and Ulquiorra fights Ichigo was nearly finished for good, but the difference in SS arc is that Ichigo had the strength to overcome his hollow and win his own battle.

Ichigo is now completely fused with Zangetsu?! This Man/Boy/Zanpakuto/LongHair hibrid totally blew me out of the water!!

I will now wait patiently for the epicenes to ensue next chapter...

THIS! and Ichigo's very last move is even called "Moonless night" also harks of loneliness, despair, darkness, etc (and no Rukia too)... Ichigo is not fine in the least. Such a big price to pay, such a big sacrifice T___T. His transformation is down right creepy.

So, this is the final proof that Ichi-thing wasn't protecting Orihime or Ishida when he transformed in the fight against Ulquiorra.

The '*no pronoun* must protect *no pronoun*' was Shirosaki saying he must protect Ichigo.

I actually really want to see what Ichigo is going to do when he ends up powerless. It will be interesting and maybe others will be able to protect him for once.
