Ichigo Kurosaki, a Man, Shinigami, Hollow and now Quincy. Ichigo is literally a being which has never seen before within the Bleach world. The concept art above makes me jump in excitement that such awesome form and art are still available for Ichigo Kurosaki. Ichigo has developed a similar form to this during his battle against Ulquiorra Cifer within Hueco Mundo. Although Ichigo has gained new powers and even stronger reiatsu, it seems that this form may no longer appear as this was the official form which Hichigo had when Ichigo longer had control.
So what do you think of this awesome and fantastic artwork, do you like it and if you do, would you want to see it once more during the manga and anime. If you like it, I suggest you go check out the person who coloured it, Futuretabs. And the person who made the artwork, MangakaOfficial.
Ichigo Kurosaki’s return to the Phoenix Palace proved to be something which was somewhat expected. However after all the Asauchi’s stopped their attack and bowed down to him, it was as though Ichigo was more than what he was previously. He knew then about his past, present and what he must do in the future. The Hollow Ichigo reveal was a bit of a surprise, I was expecting Old Man Zangetsu, however I’m more than happy to see Hollow Ichigo as it proves that Ichigo will most likely obtain his Hollow Mask once more.
Bleach is accelerating at an immense rate that it’s getting better and better each chapter. And that’s what I like to see from an author who knows how to write an awesome manga. If you liked the fantastic artwork above, please do go and check out DivineImmortality, who has hundreds of amazing Bleach fan art.
Bleach 535 explains what needs to be done when Urahara tells both Isshin and Ryuken the consequences of what will happen after it’s done. He mentions that someone powerful will need to be with her in order to balance her state of Quincy and Hollow, Isshin best fits at that time so he volunteers, however it’s for his life time. Ryuken is heartbroken and doesn’t understand what will happen. Isshin bravely saves her and gets her out of there.
Bleach 535 begins as Masaki falls towards a deeper and deeper hole, it’s as thought she’s in a mute cold abyss to which she won’t be able to escape, even at this moment, she feels no fear, something approaches her she looks on, a massive Hollow Face appears to which it’s mouth heads towards her.
Urahara explains that he’s been doing research on the condition which she has for nearly a century. Isshin mentions that he’s aging gracefully then, he asks who he really is. He mentions his name then mentions that he was expelled from the Soul Society, Isshin is shocked and then goes to ask something when Ryuken bursts in.
Ryuken mentions that it makes no difference to him who he is, he just wants to save her, then goes on to say that he wants to return her to her previous state. Urahara tells him that he wont be able to bring her back from what she was previously. There is no way to which he can bring her back the way she was before.
He explains that she’s currently going through the process of Hollowfication, which means that a hollow’s soul is injected into a normal soul, this is to blur the boundary that separates those two souls so that the normal soul can attain an exponential upgrade in strength and power. They explored within Shinigami’s but the entire process was flawed and unstable.
What has just happened is that an incomplete experiment going through the veins of a Quincy, it was never intended to undergo such a procedure. Ryuken asks if her life is a lost cause, Urahara answers telling him that her life is not yet gone, she can still come back, but differently. When a normal soul goes hollowfication, the host soul and hollow soul slowly begin to bleed into one another leading to a beast with no use of it’s thinking abilities.
This also affects the interaction between the soul and external world, the soul itself bleeds way to much to which it just self destruct, this phenomenon is known as Soul Suicide. During Urahara’s research, he uncovered a way to at least prevent this from taking place. He did this by simply putting something that will counteract the hollowfication process.
Hollowfication reaches the point of no return once the balance of the souls is disrupted which causes the boundaries between the souls to become blurred. An object that would restore the balance of the souls would prevent the soul suicide from taking place. He goes on to explain that he was able to get Light Arrow from a Quincy and a Human Soul to create a vaccine, he injected that into the souls and it stopped them from soul suicide.
Urahara explains that for Masaki something much more stronger is needed, something that would only leave her alive and thus leave her hollowfication process, a power strong enough to oppose it. Ryuken calls out a bullshit to which he knows exactly whats going on. He mentions that there has to be an alternative way , Urahara quickly mentions that he quickly understood what is happening. He goes on to mention that it’s not his choice to make, the choice belongs to Isshin!
He reveals a gigai type body to which he created, it’s derived from human souls, and shrouds the soul that enters it. If he decides to enter it he would definitely become a Shinigami/Human hybrid. He also explains that Quincies and Shinigami occupy opposite sides of the spectrum, and so do Hollows and Humans.
He if decides to go through with it, he will always be the opposite of her, he will leave the decision on his hands, he also points out that when he agrees to this, he will never have access to his Shinigami powers, this includes the abilities to see hollows. Plus once he goes through with it, his days of ever being a Shinigami and a Captain will be over.
Ryuken realizes that the negatives outweigh the positives, in fact it would be hard for him to even find positives in this. He realizes that Isshin will never say yes. Urahara goes on to explain that for him to stop the process, he needs to tie the girl’s soul and hollow soul to Isshin. As long as he’s in the shell, he’ll never be able to break the strings.
Until the girl is free from the Hollow, only when he’ll be able to exit the shell he’s in. As Urahara speaks, Isshin quickly shouts that he’s got it, leaving Ryuken and Urahara speechless. He tells everyone that he’s clearly going with it, he also mentions that quieting being a Shinigami and help her for the rest of her life will be easy. Isshin mentions that he’ll have the regrets , but in the bigger picture it means nothing.
If he was to let his savior die over some regrets, he wouldn’t be able to look at himself in the mirror tomorrow morning. Urahara gets ready for this, we return to Masaki as she’s being eaten by the Hollow when Isshin quickly arrives in style holding her, she realizes who’s come to save her, he says her and mentions that her knight in shining armor has arrived when Bleach 535 ends here!
What an awesome chapter, both Isshin and Ryuken finally found Urahara and seems like it’s all starting to make sense, a chapter to which explains that Ichigo is truly a Human, Shinigami, Quincy and Hollow! It’s getting better and better! Can’t wait for next week’s Bleach 536 when we see more action!
Bleach 534 reveals the secret of Ichigo’s birth, Masaki gains an injury from the Black Hollow meaning that she mysteriously gained a Hollow Hole, this made Ryuken run with Masaki to which he then met Isshin. After their chatter, Urahara finally appears, he tells both of them to calm down, he will give them a few choices for which they can save her.
Bleach 534 begins as Matsumoto reaches Isshin’s room, she gets there happy to go on a mission, she wants to give her some mission papers, however she reads a message to her mentioning that he’s gone back to the human world. She reads it a rips the paper in anger, Toshiro mentions that as he got away with it the first time, he can just keep on doing the same things.
Masaki reaches the house, Ryuken greets her in when her name’s shouted at her from Ryuken’s mother. She mentions the the other day she had saved a shinigami against a hollow, she is confused to how she knows, Ryuken realizes and calls Katagiri’s name. Masaki denies these facts. Ryuken’s mother mentions that she should have said something, moreover why would she ever do something like this. Her aunt holds her hand a tells her off for trying to break the rules.
Katagiri is faced by Ryuken, she’s asked why she’d ever tell her mother, he mentions that there were no issues at that moment. Katagiri quickly mentions that there were issues, she was bit by the hollow and her Quincy blood might get spoiled. Katagiri goes on to explain that didn’t he himself want a pure Quincy marriage.
Ryuken runs towards his mother, he tells her mother that she isn’t responsible for this, she starts to walk towards her when she quickly falls over! Ryuken notices this and quickly runs towards her while calling her name, he notices a strange Hollow Hole on her chest to which makes her feel uncomfortable, the mother also notices and works out that it could be a Hollow Hole.
Ryuken asks where his father is, she mentions that she doesn’t know but she’ll get in touch very quickly she tells him to wait there, however after a little while he runs off, his mother mentions that if he stays with that thing he could also be in danger. His mother tells him that he wants him to quickly come back! He keeps on running, asking himself what could be going on.
Out of nowhere appears a Hollow chasing for him, however it’s quickly cut by a sword, Isshin appears to tell him that he doesn’t need to thank him, Ryuken notices Isshin, he turns around and notices Masaki, he sees that she’s being held in his arms, he asks to see her, however Ryuken tells him not to touch her. Ryuken mentions that why does he think she’s like this, he quickly explains that it was because of him!
He goes on to mention that even though it’s Quincy rules, she protected him, a shinigami plus she got wounded. Why does she have to go through this he asks. Isshin realizes that it was because of the injury she suffered when she was bit by the Hollow. Ryuken tells him that it was made by a hollow, what else could it be he mentions.
Out of nowhere a man appears, tells both of them to stop talking. Urahara has finally appeared. He goes on to mention that there is no time to quarrel, he tells both of them to come with him, he’ll tell them possible ways to save that girl. During this point, he gives both of them a look which they understand that he’s serious, and what’s next could be bad. Bleach 534 ends here.
What a fantastic chapter, Isshin, Ryuken and Urahara finally meet up, and Urahara is looking even better than he was before. What’s going to happen next and how is this related to Ichigo’s birth? It’s all finally linking together, can’t wait for next week’s Bleach 535 when we see more action!
An incredibly strong american warrior meets one of the strongest characters from Japan. It’s Kubo Tite’s Hollow Ichigo against Stan Lee’s The Hulk! The unfortunate arrival of Bruce Banner and The Hulk in Karakura Town, especially meant that he would definitely be noticed by the Substitute Shinigami. There is also an Easter Egg within the image, tell me where Spider Man is within the image!
The image above shows Hollow Ichigo’s form in action, this probably meant that The Hulk had possibly thrown him around a couple of times until he had to rely on the hollow within to do this for him, I think the artist placed Orihime on the side for this purpose. Who do you think would win during this awesome fight? Tell me using the comment section below.
The fantastic artwork of Hulk and Hollow Ichigo was drawn by the one and only earache-J. He’s done a fantastic job of creating such an awesome artwork, that’s why he deserves you to go check his work out, that’s what I suggest!
Bleach 530 sees the return of Isshin in Karakura Town, Masaki has also been seen to be adopted into the Ishida family where she is said to marry Ryuken Ishida since she’s the last Kurosaki left. Ryuken’s maid, Katagiri, may be Uryu’s mother. Isshin detects and looks at a hollow like form to which is similar to Ichigo’s when it fought with Ulquiorra. It seems like Isshin will be going head to head with something that looks like Aizen’s experiment.
Bleach 530 begins at 8:22 PM with two members from the 10th division trying to investigate this, they notice that this bad omen comes along only when it’s raining, someone speaks of how rainy days could mean this. Out of nowhere, Isshin shows up, they ask what he’s doing there. He mentions that he wanted to go for a pee but got lost.
He then mentions that if it starts to rain, that means that they should both go back to Soul Society, he jokingly mentions that it will be hard for him to go for a pee if others are watching him. At 8:36 during the same time, we go to the Ishida mansion, where Masaki is asked about the schools.
She mentions that she looks forward to commute every morning, she also mentions that she’s able to take second helpings of pickles and cabbages during lunch. The mother’s not too happy about what she’s currently saying. She then asks how her Holy Training is going. She slowly replies that she’s taking baby steps. Her aunt gets angry, she reminds her of her situation as she’s the last offspring of the Kurosaki Family, they’ve even reached mutual understanding in that they’ll take care of a fellow Quincy.
A much younger Ryuken appears in front of them, he asks his mother to stop getting angry and refrain herself, he mentions that he could hear her voice from outside. She mentions that she’s going to her room, his dinner will also be ready soon, she tells him to tell Katagiri to clean everything when he’s finished. Ryuken asks about father, when she mentions that he’s at the Fuenftes Feld, literally meaning Fifth Field, she mentions that she sometimes wonder when he’s ever going to be back.
Ryuken starts by telling Masaki that he’s sorry for her mothers outburst, she’s just a little lonely and she’s just stressing a little out. Masaki quickly replies saying that there is nothing wrong, she’s perfectly fine and Ryuken should calm down a little. She also thanks him for the dinner, she then tells him that he’ll be in her room when she’s needed. She heads off.
Katagiri appears, she tells Ryuken that his food is ready. Out of nowhere, Ryuken begins to speak to Katagiri about what’s currently happening, her visual appearance reminds me of Uryu, could she be the mother of Uryu Ishida? He mentions that he’s well aware that she wanted to make sure that their Quincy line is pure, Katagiri knows nothing of this.
Ryuken then mentions that the last thing she’s feeling might be joy about their arranged marriage. Katagiri mentions that she thinks that Uryu may have wanted a marriage with love instead of it being arranged. She then mentions that she doesn’t think that his thoughts will be lost with Masaki. He mentions that he’s not the thoughtful type.
He mentions that she only wants her to be happy and have a positive outlook on the future. He doesn’t want to look at their future, he’s much more concerned about the future of the Quincies. Katagiri looks at him as though she’s unhappy. It begins to rain, both 10th division members are watching Isshin carefully.
Isshin mentions that this thing attacking Shinigami could have a bull’s eye in their back or that this thing may have been attracted by immense reiatsu. He raises his reiatsu in order to call this thing out. The 10th division members look at his power up, when something or someone out of nowhere appears. The two members watching Isshin die quickly and easily.
Isshin notices this, he also notices that it doesn’t matter how strong you are since this thing seems to go after all Shinigami’s. Out of nowhere this monster appears, it has a very slim body with no arms, just sword like hands which with a head with a mask similar to that which Ichigo had, it also has a very similar body type to Hollow form which Ichigo had during his fight with Ulquiorra!
A great chapter, and an amazing fight is just about to begin, hopefully we see Isshin’s fate unfold when Masaki comes to help him out, hopefully at that point, we see their love flourish, while Ryuken could get with Katagiri, it should be interesting to see whats going to happen during the next few chapters, unfortunately, Bleach 531 will be on break next week, however it will be back the week after that.
Aizen’s main Hollow form, when he fought against Ichigo’s Full Getsuga Tenshou was pretty epic! But this artist has come up with an alternative aspect to what one of the looks Aizen would develop. Something similar that has similar wings to Ulquiorra and even a sword to help him battle. What else could look better on awesome Aizen? I think this image and look is epic enough.
This awesome artwork of Aizen in his alternative Hollow form was done by yuyoukai. She’s got a ton of other fan art, she’s created this image a while ago, but I think it still lives on since it’s such an awesome image.
If you haven’t heard the song you should go and check it out because it fits with Ichigo and his other side, Hollow Ichigo. We’ve asked this many times, since Ichigo gained his powers for a second time, we’ve asked our self’s if Ichigo will be able to go into a full rage mode releasing his Hollow Ichigo form. We it’s unknown yet but what do you think?
Use the comment section to tell me what you think, if Ichigo still has his Hollow Ichigo powers or not, tell me. Personally I feel, like Ichigo’s “possible” Quincy powers, they’ve been suppressed once he lost and gained his powers. Ichigo’s current form only shows his Shinigami powers, but if they’ve been suppressed then it could explain that Ichigo will soon gain it once more allowing him to pursue Juha Bach and possibly defeat him.
Tell me what you think about this, let’s also mention that the artist, Xedor993, has done a great job of crafting and perfecting the awesome image above. Go and check his other Fan Art from different anime’s such as Fairy Tail and Naruto.
After the point Ichigo lost all his powers as well as his reiatsu, we are still guessing as well as debating the question if Hollow Ichigo, or if you prefer, Inner Ichigo, is likely to be back in action both trying to take Ichigo’s body over as well as provide Ichigo with a brand new Hollow Ichigo Mask! Do you think that Hollow Ichigo is likely to be back? Comment and tell me.
During the Lost Substitute Shinigami and Thousand-Year Blood War Arc, we still haven’t seen any sign from Ichigo if even Zangetsu is within him, we’ve seen a similar sword to what he previously had but could it mean that Zangetsu is still there? Could Hollow Ichigo somehow come into existence and torment Ichigo once more?
What do you think? Use the comment box below to tell me if Hollow Ichigo is likely to be back. The awesome image was drawn by FoxedPeople, she’s got some awesome fan art, you should check her out.
