Ichigo Kurosaki never had the intentions of being a Captain because all he wanted to do was to protect his family and friends. If you can remember the first Bleach episode, Ichigo had risked his life to obtain Shinigami powers to kill the Hollow which attacked him and his family.
If Ichigo Kurosaki was to be a Captain, do you think that he would look like this? If so, would Ichigo have the chains on his right arm like he had during his Final Getsuga Tenshou form, would this mean that Ichigo has gotten stronger?
The fantastic image above of Ichigo was drawn by a fantastic artist with the name of Juhani. You should check her art out because she’s got some awesome stuff.
