Byakuya Kuchiki imitating the awesome villain which is Loki from the series such as the Avengers. Byakuya Kuchiki, a high classes shinigami as well as a captain uses his powers to fight his opponents with his awesome Senbonzakura. An awesome image and it seems the artist has love for both of these characters, who wouldn’t.
Bleach 542 brings forth Ichigo’s new Zangetsu Zanpakuto! From a single sword to ones which are now two handed. We see Ichigo tell himself that both Hollow Ichigo and Juha Bach are his Zangetsu! From this he receives swords, one being larger than the other. He currently looks immense with both his swords! I love the new looks!
Bleach 542 begins with the past, it’s mentioned that there were no lies told, none from Hollow Ichigo, nor Juha Bach. Juha Bach saved Ichigo using the Quincy’s Shadow, he stopped his blood using his Quincy’s Blood. He even lent him his Quincy’s power when he was weak. He considers, both of them as Zangetsu, he doesn’t care who they are, he might even say that it’s not true but both of them are his Zangetsu!
He asks if he’s okay with that, calling Zangetsu one last time. As Nimaiya forges his Zanpakuto, Ichigo steps in, he looks down at whats being made, a large wave of water appears, all of Nimaiya’s helpers look at what’s happening, then mention that he shouldn’t be there as he’s hands will burn. Nimaiya tells her that it’s fine.
Nimaiya mentions that it is as he thought, if he puts his soul in there, it will be perfect. Once he does it, Nimaiya tells him that it’s done, he should take it out. He tells Ichigo that it’s he’s Zanpakuto! Ichigo begins to pull it out, once he does this, the water around him swoosh in large waves, it turns most of the water around him into steam, it begins to evaporate. Nimaiya’s helpers mention that they’ve never seen anything like this.
Nimaiya begins by telling them that the sea dried up because of the heat as well as Ichigo’s immense reiatsu! It was to cool the swords down. Ichigo struts he’s brand new swords, one which is much longer than the other, he holds both of them in pride, calling his swords Zangetsu’s! He looks at the swords and thinks of both Hollow Ichigo and Juha Bach, the combination of them being Zangetsu!
Ichigo talks to himself that from this point on, he’ll never ask for his help again, he will stop asking for him to lend his power, or for him not to be in his way, he also won’t ask for them to fight together. From this point on, he will fight on his own, he thanks Zangetsu! He mentions that he is himself, and that the blade is him! There is no longer a bond since his power is finally his.
We move to the Quincy HQ, where see a large number of people, especially the great number of Stern Ritters! They’re told to hold their Quincy’s crosses high for their leader, Juha Bach! He asks if all the Stern Ritters are there, he mentions that he has some information to tell them! Bleach 542 ends here.
This may have been a short chapter, but it was one which was awesome and great. I like what Kubo has done, especially give Ichigo a brand new look, especially the new Zangetsu sword, the two Zanpakuto will definitely be something new for all of us to see, there doesn’t seem to be any Shinigami I know off with dual handed swords. Can’t wait for next week’s Bleach 543, to see what Juha Bach has to tell us!
After Ichigo lost his Shinigami powers, he returned to his normal self with no power’s at all. He trained with Ginjo to retain some of his Shinigami Powers to protect his family and friends from harm. The evolution of these forms go from right to left.
On the right hand side, Ichigo wears a grey school uniform with red zip which he usually doesn’t zip up. The next one down, after training with Ginjo for a while, Ichigo’s Combat Pass opened up. The form after this, Ichigo develops a Clad type Fullbring with a sword. Ichigo then develops the so-called “Power Ranger” form with an actual sword with a real solid form.
Ichigo then looses his Fullbring Form to Ginjo, and gets stabbed by Rukia and his Shinigami Form get restored. There are some hints of his Fullbring Form left. Ichigo unleashes his Bankai during his fight with Ginjo, he is no match for Ichigo’s unbelievable high power and looses.
The fantastic image was drawn by IFrAgMenTIx. He’s got some of the finest Anime Art, so you should definitely check him out.
Shinji’s joins the Soul Society once more with a great start. He still has the same old face expression with a taste for not caring what other people do. He is seen here as he talks to Ichigo about how Ginjo had hurt he’s friends and family, Ichigo states that he’s family is fine and that they should give him his Body for the sake that they are both Substitute Shinigami’s.
Shinji returns to this attire with the addition of wearing his tie tucked under his robes. His hair which he kept it a short, straight-line cut after becoming a Visored has remained basically the same as well, with the exception of the bang now having a more asymmetrical cut with the left side being longer than the right. He also keeps the tie he had in his old look as it goes really well with the look he currently has now.
Within the latest Bleach 366 episode, we see Kensei walk in front of Ichigo to reveal that he’s got a new look. They talk for a bit. Kensei dismisses Ichigo as he just tells him that he’s here to talk to Yamamoto and not have a casual chit chat.
He wears a sleeveless shihakusho that was open on the front before, which is closed now. It exposed his chest and tattoo. He also wore a sleeveless haori and a pair of fingerless black gloves that covered most of his forearms. He now wears a new metallic belt and mussed up hair. It also seems as thought he has also been going to the Soul Society gym as he looks a lot more hench then before.
During the fight, Ichigo vs Ginjo, Ichigo gains an new Shikai look. Now Ichigo has a New Bankai Look which was featured during the latest Bleach 365 episode! If you were lucky enough to read the manga, you’d guessed that Ichigo’s Bankai Looks amazing!
Ichigo’s previous Bankai was awesome, but after I saw this! This is just EPIC! He opened this form so he could quickly get rid of Ginjo. As some remaining traces of Ichigo’s Fullbring was still within him, the appearance of his Bankai changed slightly.
He wears a white undershirt beneath his black shihakusho, which is now open. Held together by three “x”-shaped marks, it ends in a number of coattails. Ichigo wears black gloves with white “x”-shaped marks appear on both the gloves and his forearms.
Tensa Zangetsu’s blade is now much longer (roughly the length of his Shikai) and more curved as it nears the tip, with three protrusions along the blunt end of the sword close to its tip. While retaining its manji-like shape, the tsuba becomes more curved and jagged. Tensa Zangetsu’s chain is now longer, attaching to both the base of the sword’s hilt and to Ichigo’s glove, forming a wide loop.
Bleach just seems to be getting better and better! Today’s Bleach 362 started out amazing and ended amazingly! Ichigo eliminates Ginjo, but comes back with his Fullbring Form. The other Xcution members complain that they also want a share of Ichigo’s powers and thus get them. At this point Yukio separates each Shinigami and Fullbring Member to fight within their own reality dimension until one dies.
So we start this fantastic episode with Ichigo apologizing to Ginjo for missing the Getsuga Tenshou he had sent before. Here Ginjo tries to retreat and regroup to fight another time, but Ichigo follows him and holds his shoulder and pulls him to the ground. While Ginjo falls Ichigo pushes Ginjo to the ground to get him to get serious.
They both keep fighting until a point where Ginjo is knocked out by the Getsuga Tenshou. Ichigo then calms down to find out that his powers didn’t only come from Rukia, Renji, Byakuya, Toshiro, Zaraki and Ikkaku but also Shinji, Rangiku, Unohana, Hanataro, Isshin, Urahara, Yoruichi and even Yamamoto.
Ginjo suddenly explodes with overwhelming power which he changes into his Fullbring form. His New Look changes as he now has bone type objects covering his chest, feet and his legs.
Toshiro then explains the reasons why Ichigo’s powers were returned to him, the first was that Ichigo had done a great deal for the Soul Society so they are in their debt. And the second is Kugo Ginjo.
Long before Ichigo was introduced in to the Soul Society, a man was issued a combat pass as a Substitute Soul Reaper. This Shinigami gave up the position and disappeared. The First Substitute Shinigami was awarded to Kugo Ginjo. That’s why when Ukitake first handed Ichigo the Combat Pass, he had told Ichigo about if Soul Reapers are beneficial to the Soul Society they will be giving the Combat Pass.
The Substitute Shinigami law was created for Kugo Ginjo. Byakuya then steps in to prevent Toshiro from telling too much information, Toshiro then tells Ichigo that they will deal with the details later on.
At this moment, the other members of Xcution arrive to claim there share of Ichigo’s power. Annoyed Ginjo slashes them with his sword and thus they transform into their Fullbring form.
Ichigo tells Ikkaku and the others to back off, as this was Ichigo’s fault. He launches a Getsuga Tenshou only to find out that he was under Yukio’s Invaders Must Die: Digital Radial Invaders. Ikkaku then approaches Yukio from behind only to find out a second time that the same trick has been used twice.
At this point, Yukio’s game attack tries to attack Ikkaku from behind, at the precise moment, Toshiro steps in to stop this attack and warns Ikkaku to keep himself on his toes and not to slack.
Ikkaku is then attacked by Moe, while Jackie steps forward to Renji, and Giriko comes to Zaraki as well as Tsukishima comes behind Byakuya. At this point Yukio starts out by making sure everyone’s spread out properly so they are able to fight whom they want.
So it’s Toshiro vs Yukio, Renji vs Jackie, Rukia vs Riruka, Ikkaku vs Moe, Byakuya vs Tsukishima and Ichigo vs Ginjo. At this point, they are within different types of world which best suits the Xcution members personality giving them an advantage, but do you think they’re going to win? The episode ends here.
What an amazing episode that was! I’m just getting hyped on how amazing the fights between these amazing characters will be! Really want to see how much they’ve grown both is mind and the amount power they now have! Can’t wait to watch next week’s Bleach 363.
Ichigo has finally regained his Shinigami’s powers, Ichigo regained them when Rukia had stabbed him from the back using a special sword which Urahara had developed. Ichigo now looks amazing with the brand new look. We can see some amazing improvements on his look from his last look. We can also see some resemblances from his Fullbring powers. His sword, Zangetsu has also been altered, this points out that some of his Fullbring powers still exist inside him.
As stated in the Bleach New Look Overview, Ichigo has gained an amazing new look.
This transformed Ichigo into this new Shikai form which personally, looks bad-ass. Ichigo’s outfit also has been remade by Tite Kubo. Currently we can see that Ichigo’s shihakusho has gained some similarities from Ichigo’s Fullbring Form.
After the old Shikai of Zangetsu, the appearance changes now, giving the blade a silver hilt with gray-wrappings and a short length of chain at its base. The blade itself becomes slightly reshaped, curving inwards at the backside of the tip similar to a trench knife. When stored away on Ichigo’s back, the former cloth will materialize to still act as an impromptu sheath.
Renji Abarai, Byakuya Kuchiki, Toshiro Hitsugaya, Zaraki Kenpachi and Ikkaku Madarame have all got a brand new look. If you think that it looks somewhat the same, your correct but there have been some small little changes which make large differences throughout the whole Anime.
As seen here, in Bleach New Look Overview blog post. Some of these changes include:
Renji’s New Look: Renji has now got a black headband instead of a white one which he usually has. Also, his hair style may have changed a little from his last form as now he uses his headband to hold the back of his hair. Furthermore, Renji’s hair has grown longer, plus he has long dark straps on each wrist with bandages over his arms.
Byakuya’s New Look: Byakuya wears his kenseikan at the back of his head, he also wear a variation of captain haori with a high collar which has a light gold on its edges and small, light gold tassels attacked to the corner. Furthermore, Byakuya no longer wear his scarf, due to the collars.
Hitsugaya’s New Look: A year and a half after Aizen’s defeat, shortly after Ichigo regains his Shinigami powers when Rukia stabbed him with the white sword, Toshiro appears sporting a hairstyle similar to that before he became a Shinigami, and a long turquoise scarf. His green sash is also changed to a thin chain, but it still retains the star-like clip. Furthermore his hair has grown longer, while he’s stayed the same height.
Zaraki’s New Look: When he arrives, after Ichigo was stabbed by Rukia, we see Zaraki’s New Look. When the Shinigami’s are separated we finally see that Zaraki’s look hasn’t changed much. All his cloths are still the same. Except for his eye patch which he covers his right with. His old eye patch had straps which connect at the back of his head, however in this new look, Zaraki’s new patch seems to be just a strap on which he puts in. His scar still exists on his left eye. Furthermore, before, the tips of his hair had bells on. Now his hair doesn’t seem to have any bells.
Madarame’s New Look: He has gained a gold-colored shoulder armor with a Kanji for ‘dragon’ on it. Madara has also gotten a lot more spirit as well as fair during fights as he makes sure that Moe, his opponent, is able to know what he’s getting into when he got into a fight with Ikkaku. Plus he seems a lot more chilled out as well as cool.
Today’s Bleach 360 offered a hint of next week’s Bleach 361. As you can see in the above image, Renji, Byakuya, Hitsugaya, Zaraki and Madarame have arrived in Karakura town. I’m writing this post to show how awesome from this point on, Bleach as a series will get.
Next week’s Bleach 361 will be absolutely epic as the above image states, we never usually see such a large number of greatly powerful Shinigami’s at once unless it has something massive something behind it. I’m not here to spoil it for you guys, but I will certainly hint at a few things for you guys.
As you can certainly see, they have all had a few changes within their look as around 17 months has passed between the incident between Aizen and Ichigo’s fight. So having them come in so unexpectedly is something out of the blue for us, right? Nop,we saw that Rukia had already appeared before. when she was dealing with Urahara and Isshin.
Rukia was there with a certain glowing white sword which allowed her to put some of her Reiatsu into the sword. It could be me, or could the first Bleach episode be in repeat, as we got a hint from today’s episode that Ginjo will be taking Ichigo’s Fullbring making him useless with no powers. And as the above image shows, Soul Reapers are coming to help Ichigo, as well as Rukia coming with the special sword. I think iv written too much there, hehe.
