Interesting. I've always wondered though why Hisagi isn't listed as having dual Zanpakuto because he has two blades in Shikai, and Ukitake only has 2 blades in Shikai as well and they both have their swords connected by a Chain.
I'm Guessing that Each Blade has access to all of Ichigo's ablitities. Since Ishin can do GT I'm guessing that it's a Shinigami technique, and the blue eyes are likely linked to Ichigo's Quincy powers as his eyes never glowed blue when he was relying on his inner hollow.
I'm also in agreement that I hope he keeps the new Shikai look with his outfit. It looks simply badass.
So I hope his Zanpakuto has a new shikai and bankai name. Still with Zangetsu but something more or more elaborate. Do you guys think he will have 2 bankai modes? One for Shinigami and one for Quincy? I think his fullbringer powers are gone/useless now, it got him a quick fix for when he needed his power but it didn't really give him anything important, I don't think he could use his sub shinigami badge to bring it back out or anything.
I want to see his inner world either look different or just not be underwater too.
Ichigo needs a lot of training time now, hope he gets it in some form, maybe all the captains could train with him one at a time in the precipise world.
A pie in the sky?
Guys, Ichigo still has 2 RG captains left to visit. I am pretty sure he will get some kind of ass kicking training to go with his shiny new toys. I doubt he will need much more training than that. And even so, the one to teach Ichigo how to best use his new dual weapons is none other than his own Zanpakuto(s) right?
Also I have seen some theorizing at a few other places that the two zanpakutos will attach at the hilts(which looks stupid) and form some kind of quincy bow. I sincerely hope not. Ichigo is a damned shinigami for crying out loud, sure I'm all for Ichigo incorporating some quincy techniques that will be beneficial to his base arsenal... but for him to suddenly start shooting arrows out of a zanpakuto bow strikes me as just absolutely retarded. There are much better ways to incorporate Ichigo's quincy heritage.
^ Even if those blades will connect around the hilts, it still will not form a bow. It will be more like a Twin Sword, after all Ishin's own Shikai, while extremely blazing, looks more like a twin sword than just a sword with a scarf on the other end.
I am not so sure about the 2 swords, I think I would prefer if he had 2 Big Zangetsus, but one White while the other Black .
I'm not really sure for what reason is that big counter balance needed on the end of the Big Z, it's not like Ichigo needed it in the previous forms, even though he was handling it with one arm quite often (not to mention that the old ones were bigger and likely heavier). The only rational things I can come up, is that it is a storing device (for energy ?) or some connector, unless something is going to come up from there, hmmmm...
If Ichigo's going to be able now to seal his Zanpakutou into an Asauchi form, I sure hope that will gain a badass release command for it, like for example: "Howling under the Black Moon, Slashing above the White Moon, Roaring to Pierce the Heavens - Zangetsu/s".
I'm surprised that no one had yet commented on that one panel in which Ichigo looks like an older Hitsugaya :p.
A real Colossal Sword, is only Colossal when it is at least 5 times bigger than the thing you pilot:
Poor Ichigo, I kinda feel sorry for him. How in the H@ll does he handle Two blade, and as for Quincy Techs, Blut is great, and so is Reiatsu absorbing, but anything else it's tempting to say/think they're beyond Ichigo's grade level.
Ichigo is a straight out Slash, Bash, Getsuga...Tenshoooouuuuuw Kinda guy. I do hope the other Two Zero Captains have something to say/do that will make his swords more manageable, else the poor snot will have to fight in Bankai permanently, just so he doesn't trip over Shini-Zan, while stabbing himself with Q-Zan. (LOL!)
I am not perfect and I defy you to prove otherwise
Growing Old Gracefully is an Oxymoron ... Mostly Moron !
Come to think of it, with a chain/string, it could do all forms of Kougan Anki except for the Scissors and Mu. So, a double blade, a kusarigama, a boomerang, and the bow. I kinda want it to happen (Koganei's fighting style was very creative and I'd love to see Ichigo's take on it), but I'm not looking forward to "OMG Kubo ripped off Nobuyuki Anzai"
