    Exactly...*claps hands*.

    Firstly, giving Ichigo too much power would kill the series <.<...So, giving him a second bankai would not only be unfair, but it wouldn't provide any interesting plot...

    Now, as xxsaznpride said, a second form would be understandable...More than likely a controlled form of himself and Hollow Ichigo...aka. Vaizard.

    Ban Kai = Final release.

    Unlease Kubo makes up another release surpassing final, like Uber or super-duper release, there probably won't be another one. As for the two-in-one Ban Kai, it would be interesting to see, but highly doubt it.

    Right now it's hinted that the training that Ichigo is now going through let's him control hollow abilities better with his mask. Maybe that's his "new power."

    i thought the training was just to allow him to control his hollow such that he could actually use his bankai to its full extent without becoming the hollow...sure that would mean an increase in strength and efficiency but can it really be considered an entirely new technique?

    Off-topic: I don't want Ichigo gaining any more power than he already has. He started off as some punk kid but somehow he managed to surpass a ton of people (within no time) who apparently had several years more experience than he did. Enough with the genius crap, anymore "power-ups" (though of course he's only going to get stronger) to Ichigo will only continue to further his massive ego and attitude problem.

    On-topic: I would not mind seeing Ichigo wield 2 swords like Ukitake and Kyouraku though. He doesn't need another bankai, but if the possibilty arises, it'll probably be because of his two separate forms?

    Here is a question. Who ever made the rule that more bankais = more power = more pwnage? Any guy can stock up an arsenal but is only as powerful as the one gun he is currently wielding. I can carry a shotgun and a sniper rifle into battle but I can only play 1 of the 2 roles at a time (I would realy like to see the situation where some guy rambos at close range whilst simutaneously sharpshooting people a kilometer away). Ehem....sorry, got carried away for a sec......
    Not that I gave much thought into the whole different bankai thing (note that I suggested 'variations' of Ichi's bankai, black and white like ying & yang) but I like to play the devils advocate in these cases. While 2 bankais is arguably impossible due to the 'one sword per shinigami' mechanic (as opposed to variations) but IF KT does ever pull a stunt to bring Ichigo 2 bankais (probably to be expained by Ichigo's duel nature as Newbie says) it would probably hinder rather than help if even his 'other' bankai would act against him (hollow ichi is no big supporter even if he IS part of Ichi's soul). Plus, who said both bankais are all Ichigo's alone? One could pertain exclusively to him while the other to Hollow Ichi (although the possiblity of unque powers between the two is yet to be theorised)

    Hollow Ichigo suits the alter-ego perfectly, since he has no compassion. And Wichigo just sounds stupid.

    Anyway, go read my Urahara Bankai thread, it seems it might be possible to have two Bankai's. One through Urahara's doll method, and the other way the captains have all learned it.

    Because Ichigo's Bankai doesnt increase his power at all, it only buff's his speed, and all the other Captains Bankai's give them a power buff, except maybe Tousen.

    And about Bankai meaning final release. Thats taking the Soul Slayer's power and using it in your own way. Its not your Soul Slayer working with you. I think Senkai is bringing forward the true form of a Soul Slayer to fight alongside you. Not like Bankai with the lending-power characteristic. So maybe Zangetsu would pop out, or maybe Hollow Ichigo, and they'd both be able to wreak havoc.

    And it would be better if Ichigo's ego went insane, because then it would also increase Hollow Ichigo's knowledge of power, and he's ultimately a better fighter than Ichigo, so they'd end up breaking apart somehow, and having some big be-all-end-all battle. It doesnt have to end with Aizen dying, you know.

    And dont you all remember when Hollow Ichigo fought Byakuya? Tensa Zangetsu sort of shot out like a twirly Shinsou, but was outlined with a dark red aura. His Hollow side knows more about his Bankai, since he's more in touch with his primitive fighting side, more willing to gain power without fear of scaring others. Ichigo is probably holding back from gaining too much power incase he ended up causing too much harm to his friends and family.

    He already is a vaizard. I don't see what you're getting at saying that his second form is a vaizard. Vaizard is a state of being. Like human, or hollow, or shinigami.

    I don't think his bankai will have a "second form" like Byakuya. Byakuya's bankai didn't change forms perse, but instead he uses it in a different manner. All those petals he had before simply merged into all those swords (I could be wrong about this) and then all of it merged into one sword.

    Then only thing I think might happen is Ichigo learning a few new tricks with his sword. Tapping into his Hollow side to shoot bigger blasts, or increasing his speed even more.

    I don't think that Ichigo can use his hollow side to increase his speed. That's pretty much just a matter of how well he can use his Ban Kai's abilities. And I'm pretty sure you're 100% right about the petals forming together and stuff. That's pretty much what it looks like. Form 1= All the swords broken into petals. Form 2= petals turning back into swords. And the form 3 is just all the swords fusing into one badass thing.

    Wichigo doesn't sound that stupid... if ever it did.

    @Urahara: You're probably right about Wichigo (I'll stick to that, thanks) knowing more about the Ban Kai than Ichigo. For all we know, he could be training in Ichigo's 'Inner World' dealy while Ichigo himself was too much of a pussy to try it all out for himself.

    No, I didn't mean the hollow increasing his speed. I just meant Ichigo increasing his speed, while he taps into his Hollow side to fuel more energy into his blasts.

    It would be cool to see Hollow Ichigo manifest his own body and have the two Ichigo's kick everyone's ass.

    i thought he might get a new one when wichigo broke his sword and claimed he would take away his bankai. but i thought he'd have to trade in, not have two.
    Can you wrestle a man with no arms? no, challenge him to boxing.
