From the very beginning Ichigo Kurosaki has been quick in developing new techniques, it was as though he is special in getting better and better at what he does. One thing i’ve found is that during every point when Ichigo is needed, he’s entrance to all his fights are always awesome and inspiring. It was as though every time he arrived he was a new man, and ready to quickly fight with his new found powers. Continue reading
Ichigo Kurosaki deserves all the help he can get, from all his fights he’s won by either a large power difference or by a very thin line by which Ichigo has either lost of won. From those loses he’s developed and gained a number of power ups. However Zangetsu, or now known as Younger Juha Bach, had completely suppressed most of his Quincy powers which led to Ichigo only using his Shinigami and Hollow, from which he had gotten really powerful, above most captains. However once Juha Bach let him realise that he suppressed his Quincy powers, all hell got lose and he unlocked this and combined all his qualities into one which he can rampage and literally defeat anyone.

After a long wait, we see the return of Bleach Manga, we also see the great return of Ichigo Kurosaki to a state in which it seems that he’s once again going to wipe anyone and everyone that comes in his way, something we saw during Ichigo’s fight against Aizen. Could this show that Ichigo will once again kill his enemies with just a few strikes, or does this mean that Ichigo will have a great challenge. Ichigo seems to be a lot stronger than any other form before, especially with two swords, he really seems invincible.
The awesome fan art above was done by Sideburn004 who has captured the moment in which Ichigo will face great foes. I believe that it’s going to be a journey he won’t face alone, it will most likely mean that all Vizards, Quincy’s, Hollows, Espada’s and many other beings will have to get involved! It will be a great journey!
This simple yet effective image of Ichigo Kurosaki and Uryu Ishida says a lot about the future of Bleach. We already know that Ichigo is part of Soul Society and has already begun training himself in order to improve, and that Uryu is now up for the role as the next leader of the Quincy. Could this pose a question that both Ichigo and Uryu will go on a head to head match against each other, I certainly think so, what do you think?
The awesome artwork above was done by Antonio1495 who’s done a great job. If you like the above image by them, I think you’ll like their other work. It’s mostly based on Bleach which is just awesome. If you like the above image, drop a comment and a like.
Bleach 541 enters a new stage for Ichigo as he talks to Juha Bach within him, he mentions that he’s not Zangetsu, in fact the Hollow he’s been training with is his Zangetsu, furthermore Juha Bach tried to protect him but failed. He brings out a sword when he disappears. He mentions that this sword is his real zanpakuto, Ichigo’s real Zangetsu!
Bleach 541 begins with Ichigo getting a few memories, the first time he fought him, he had a feeling that he was summoned there in front of Juha Bach, he tried to not think about the reason, he didn’t even have any information except that he was the enemy. Plus the first time he looked at him, it quickly reminded him of someone he knew.
He shouts his name, calling out Zangetsu, Ichigo asks him what all this means. The person we know as Zangetsu is in fact Juha Bach, he mentions that it is what he has heard from Nimaiya. He also mentions that he is not Zangetsu! At this moment, Ichigo gets heart broken, at the same time the place they’re in begins to break, the buildings break and go into water.
Ichigo asks if he’s really Juha Bach and not Zangetsu. Juha Bach answers this question by telling him that he’s the source of his Quincy Power within him, plus he’s both Juha Bach and at the same time he’s not him. Ichigo shouts telling him that he doesn’t get what he means. Ichigo asks if he’s an enemy, and ally and was what he mentioned a lie. He shouts for him to answer.
Juha Bach mentions that he is neither his ally or enemy. Furthermore his words are straight from his heart, and that he has never told him a lie, except about his name. He tells him that he should have noticed it by now. When he was teaching about how to use a Zanpakuto, it was not him who was helping him, it was in fact the power of his Hollow.
When he couldn’t use his Zanpakuto powers, when his life was in danger, the one who saved you was not him, in fact it was always his inner hollow! Ichigo is shocked to hear this. Juha Bach mentions that he didn’t want him to become a shinigami, that is why he tried to suppress his growing potential and always tried to be the core of his power.
Ichigo asks why, Juha Bach mentions that is it strange for him to keep him away from fights and danger, if he became a shinigami, he would have always been involved, he will be hurt, he will suffer, and thus one day he will have to kill Ichigo with his own hands. Juha Bach unleashes a sword looking object with flame like substance covering it.
Ichigo looks at him, mentioning that he may have to fight him at this point, Juha Bach mentions that he mustn’t let him become a shinigami, if he becomes one he will have to kill him. This is what he had thought, however eventually Ichigo did become a shinigami, he had chance, he trained hard and despite getting hurt and suffering, he chose to pursue that path.
When ever he saw him like this, he’s heart would waver, intending of stopping Ichigo becoming a Shinigami, he’s heart started to help him in his path, and even at this point, he’s happy to step back, he mentions that he’s become strong, he was able to watch him grow, all this time when he’s been close to him, he couldn’t be happier, at this moment he’s satisfied. Juha Bach begins to fade away after his skin starts to degrade, Ichigo mentions that he still has things to ask.
At this moment, we see Juha Bach cry after fading away, all that is left is the sword which Juha Bach summoned. It seems to be burning in a flame, Juha Bach mentions that what he’s been using is the power that he was unable to suppress, now he can finally fight using his own strength, take it with you, what’s in front of him is his real zanpakuto, the real Zangetsu! A large flash appears at this point, Bleach 541 ends here.
A new chapter after another, it seems that Bleach is getting better, even more and more! Ichigo getting another new power up as well as all of his own power is going to be awesome. It seems that as Juha Bach steps back, he won’t be able to use his Quincy powers, hopefully he might be able to unlock it later on, can’t wait to see what it looks like! Can’t wait for Bleach 542 next week!
Ichigo Kurosaki’s powers do not stop where you think they do. Ichigo’s powers seem to be something which is unique to him and him only. Ichigo’s powers have spanned hard and far from Shinigami to Hollow, then Fullbring and Shinigami once more. However it doesn’t seem to stop there, there’s whispers that Ichigo may in fact have Quincy abilities too, the image here illustrates this amazingly well.
The fantastic image above was done by the one and only iChezerlane who’s done an incredible job of creating such an amazing piece of artwork, they have a number of different artwork which you should definitely check out, they’re also very talented at what they do.
Ichigo has a ton of awesome artwork, one of which is here, apparently as the titled describes, Ichigo never fails to win his battles, he’s tried fully on all his battles, he loses some but never gives up on training hard enough in order to get back what’s rightfully his, he tries and destroys his opponent, just like he did with Ulquiorra and even Aizen.
Ichigo’s anger seems to be trumping everything, the fact that his mother is a Quincy and Isshin a captain Shinigami, puts him on a peg to which he seems like a Go towards others. The fantastic image above was done by the one and only EiriteL, they’ve got a huge number of awesome artwork which you should definitely check out.
Bleach 528 confirms the theories that Masaki Kurosaki is a Quincy! Furthermore its shown that Ichigo reaches his house without even going to get his body back to get his body back, he can’t face his father so goes to get help from Ikumi when Isshin Kurosaki appears in his Shinigami form, he definitely wants to talk to Ichigo about his past!
Bleach 528 begins as Ichigo is dropped of at his house, he notices that he’s currently not in his Shinigami body, and that Urahara left his body at his shop. He calls for Urahara’s names when he realizes that he’s still in Hueco Mundo, he wonders who could have taken his body, he realizes that it could have been his father, he hears the door open when Ichigo runs away!
It seems that he’s gone to Ikumi’s place to get some companion ship, she mentions that the one time he comes to visit he comes in the rain with a terrible face, just like a school girl. He says that he’s sorry about this, he talks to himself mentioning that it’s a good thing that Urahara isn’t there, as they’re with Orihime and Chad. Plus he doesn’t know how he can talk to Isshin, his father.
He comes out of the shower, out of nowhere, a boiling hot dumpling is thrown at his face, which Ikumi just made. Ikumi mentions that she’s also dried his cloths, so he can put them back on and go home. She also mentions that it’s a good thing that he came there whilst her son was sleeping because she doesn’t know what he’ll do when he’s there. Ichigo mentions that he’s sorry that he’s always skipped his job but at a time like that he comes there at a time like that.
She smacks her head against his telling her to stop saying sorry and do the job properly. She mentions that she doesn’t care if he feels sorry, lonely or whatever, she feels as though she’s his older sister, she mentions that she can rely on her whenever he needs it. She mentioned once before children should rely on adults. Ichigo is shocked, he mentions how she can feel that she’s his sister when she’s like 10 years older than him. She goes for the kick when he stops it.
She’s shocked at Ichigo that he said something like that after he mentioned something like that. Someone knocks at the door, Ikumi opens the door and it seems like she can’t see who it is and dismisses the knock and closes the door. However, it seems that Ichigo can clearly see that the person who walked in is a Shinigami, this Shinigami is his father! Isshin Kurosaki.
Ichigo mentions that he’s thankful for everything, and now it’s his time to go home, she gives him her umbrella for the rain. After he leaves it seems like Ichigo had forgotten his Substitute Shinigami badge. She calls for Ichigo’s name but he’s no longer there, she mentions that she’ll just go and give it to him tomorrow. They reach home, Isshin talks asking Ichigo if he wants some of his cooking, Ichigo tells him to quit it.
Ichigo mentions that he came to get Ichigo in his Shinigami outfit, he must already know what happened. He heard from Urahara what happened to him, that he broke his Zanpakuto and that the Zero Division took him. He mentions that he was sent back there, he calls this a coincidence as he knew that it would happen. Also there is no way for him to fix his broken Bankai at this point.
Isshin tells Ichigo that he doesn’t know anything about himself, thus he won’t be able to do anything, Ichigo grabs him and in shock he doesn’t know what he wants to do. Ichigo told Isshin once that he’d wait until he felt it was the right time to tell him, during the fight with Aizen. Isshin mentions that it’s not the time!
He tells him to listen carefully! He’s told that he’s not a Shinigami, he’s not just a human either! Isshin goes on to mention that his mother was a, something which isn’t mentioned. We move onto the past when we see Isshin on the floor as the rain pours on him. A girl arrives asking him if he’s okay. Isshin mentions that he’s a captain who gets saved by a girl.
She appears and tells him that she’s going to heal him so she shouldn’t move, Isshin asks her how she could kill a Hollow all by herself, he asks what she is, she introduces herself as Masaki Kurosaki, and then she goes on to mention that she’s in fact a Quincy who has extraordinary powers! Bleach 528 ends here!
A great chapter, we’ve finally found out the real thing about Masaki and how both of them met for the first time! What a fantastic chapter, and Ichigo’s depression is going to turn to something that even he might not realizes! Can’t wait for next week’s 529, when we could see more of what happened between Masaki and Isshin.
The revelations to which Ichigo Kurosaki could be a Quincy could actually be true as we’ve seen with our own eyes that Ichigo’s abilities awaken after he was trapped within Kirge’s Pure Quincy Jail. We’ve known that Ichigo’s always been a special kid, but who knew that he had a blend of the possibly the most powerful forms of life that exist within their world, Human, Shinigami, Hollow and even Quincy!
It’s still not fully been confirmed, but the way Juha Bach spoke in front of Ichigo, as well as Ichigo performing the Blut Defence Mechanisms is good enough proof to say that he’s a large mix genes from a large number of species such as the Human, Shinigami and Quincy. It could mean that Shinigami could have come from Isshin while Human and Quincy from his mother, Masaki. Hollow was created and developed due to Urahara’s unusual and unorthodox techniques of bringing Ichigo’s Shinigami Powers back! Tell me what you think using the comments below.
The incredible artwork above was created as well as coloured in by RicardoNamikaze. He’s done a fantastic job of drawing as well as coming up such a great idea of using Ichigo’s hoodie as an inspiration. You should definitely check him out!
Haschwald is Juha Bach’s close and personal lieutenant who hasn’t involved himself in any of Juha Bach’s fight. Thus could he be a neutral who’s just following orders? Haschwald seems to be a mystery man who we haven’t seen much of except the fact that he cut Ichigo’s sword in half! His powers could possibly surpass that of Ichigo and possibly any other captain, but who is he really?
Haschwald is most likely a Quincy, but there is always a possibly that he could be an Arrancar or Shinigami, but then again, would Juha Bach stand on having a Arrancar or Shinigami as his lieutenant? Possibly not. The fact that he doesn’t part take in many fights, nor does he like to fight other people, he seems like a person who just seems to be following orders.
The fact that he left some Shinigami’s alive because they were either so weak or lost their minds after seeing Haschwald could mean that he’s not up for killing innocent people, his orders could state to kill Soul Society’s pillars, thus bringing Soul Society into crumbles.
But who is he really? What do you think his real intentions are, and why does he seem like he doesn’t like to take Juha Bach’s orders? Tell me using the comment box!
The fantastic image of Haschwald was drawn by Ze-RoFruits. They’ve got some other fantastic work, so go and check their work out using the link. Also don’t forget to tell me what you think!
