    It's quite too late for him to still get any substantial powers. Besides, he doesn't have the character for it. Perhaps Kubo just wanted to involve him back in the story? Remember, he actually played a reasonable role in the pre-SS arc.

    [Edit]Insert between the two posts above[/Edit]

    Maybe he could make himself invisible to spirits? That would have a certain level of utility without necessarily being considered "powerful".

    Now, if Asano or Tatsuki were to get powers I could see it occuring in the event that a shinigami transfers them because of his or her looming death, but that's not very exciting the second or third time around. Assuming that they gain powers using a similar method to Chad and Inoue's (get attacked by a hollow), how many different manifestations are there left?

    So far we haven't seen anyone control the earth, air or wood elements, go invisible, turn into liquid, stretch their body proportions (not a good idea), read minds, use telekinesis, teleport (accept in the anime), materialize a falling anvil, control animals, throw a returning weapon (not necessarily a massive boomerang), use lightning (as anything other than kidou), pass through other spirits, use a bo staff or cudgel, hit a spiritualy enhanced baseball at somebody, makes spikes grow from the ground, create illusions of any kind for good (not evil), duplicate themself many times (damn Naruto for stealing this), create modern weapons out of spirit stuff, use a scyth, emit acid, devour reiatsu, steal someone elses powers, see the future (too plot device-ish), reverse the hollow transformation, shoot daggers from their eyes that explode into more daggers, and many others.

    Rather than knowing whether or not people want Asano to get powers I'd be more interested in knowing what powers they think would be most suitable to his character, even if they'd rather he have none at all.

    1st paragraph - some of them are already shown by other people (lightning by Captain Ukitake, wind by Kyoraku, fire by Yamamoto, Water by Hitsugaya etc etc). The other possibilities you put are plain absurd. And KT would fall very very low below if ever he was to use one of them

    2nd paragraph - Contrary to you I'm not interested in reading lots and lots of stupid hypothesis about Asano's powers (why stupid? because judging by the nature of the character lots will put in silly sissy theories). Bleach forum is already a mess better not make it worse.

    SECONDED ...Cant believe this topic is STILL around =(

    but what the fuck...

    actually Tite HAS used some of them, the Reiatsu devouring is Yumichika, Bo Staff might as well be Ikkaku, the Spikes if Tousen's Shikai, The "Enhanced Baseball" could be Hinamori,... etc.


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,

    Jenova,

    *tear*

    Well most of my suggestions were intended to be absurd. I mean, "shooting daggers from your eyes that explode into more daggers"?

    Guess I must have forgotten Ukitake and Shunsui's respective powers (all I remember is the double shikai thing).

    Now if you're not interested in seeing that particular exchange of ideas then you don't necessarily have to. I'd just be more interested in hearing about that than I would about how people would rather Asano remain a liability, though I would by no means deny them the right to indicate that opinion.


    StealDragon,

    Hinamori used a baseball?... Maybe I've been reading the manga right to left. (But seriously, all I remember is the fight with Kira and that she's got her kidou PhD.)


    lbosquet,

    Is that you?

    If Karen, who's been with Ichigo her entire life AND the daughter of an ex-shinigami AND have been aware of the spirits for a long time doesn't have any powers other than the ability to kick the crap out of her dad;

    Then Asano Kiego sure as hell isn't going to get any. His only role in being able to see spirits is probably to throw in a little comic relief with the whole Ikkaku and his sister thing

    Karin is also about twelve and she has never tried to develop powers. Ichigo could see spirits all his life too without doing anything about it; he wasn't introduced to the Shinigami until Rukia came along. Presumably, if Karin wanted to (or was maybe a bit older), she could also use powers.

    Keigo might end up being a more important character later on, like Tatsuki, or maybe they just won't end up important at all. Nothing has happened yet to show the likelihood of one way or the other.

    inoue and orihime's latent powers were awakened by ichigo.........
    they already had it............that probably means that karin and asano will not get powers

    Ayato_Kamina,

    *tear*x2

    Well, if I heard people's ideas at least I might see something other than "I don't think Asano should or will have powers because..."

    I'm pretty well aware of all the reasons why he shouldn't, but I don't doubt the ability of someone out there to provide a really good reason why he should that Kubo may or may not use, which nevertheless I'd love to hear, and I guess its because stupid things interest me.

    I don't doubt that there's a way to give Asano powers that would be highly entertaining, whether or not in a comical context as you suggested. And I'm not asking anyone in particular to post their ideas in this thread or this forum, but rather stating the fact that I'd love to receive numberous suggestions in my mail, sift through them find the best one and wonder "why didn't I think about that?", whether it astounds me or makes me laugh my ass off.


    To address the topic,

    I think if Asano were to gain any powers their combat effectiveness would have to be proportional to the hardship to which he is subjected in order to obtain them either just in order to survive or as the culmination of some form of training (though I'd prefer the former). Then again if they were just a utility more suitable for espionage or some other non combat related function he could come by them rather easily.

    It's possible that Asano may already have powers, but like Chad and Orihime has to be backed into a corner before he can manifest them, presumably as a survival reflex.

    If Asano did receive an effective combat ability, it would be great as long as I'm able to laugh my ass off when I see it used. For example, when Don Kon Onji used his "attack" in the anime I capsized out of my chair. In that same vein however, if asano's attack were defeated he wouldn't make that "crap I'm dead face", but he'd do that thing where he arranges his arms in front of himself in that weird way and his face takes on the characteristics of "The Scream" (but with wider eyes).

    I wouldn't even mind if Asano defeated someone as important as Grimjaw, just as long as he did it by summoning a blue whale to swallow him from above, or something to that extent. And it wouldn't be a kill; it would just create a great deal of humiliation.

    In fact now that I think about it perhaps Asano could have the power to will anything into existence, but with plenty of backfire where everyone on the battlefield goes pseudo-chibi (including the bad guys and Asano himself) as they all run for cover from the most recent thing Asano saw while watching anime. Asano could style himself as a magician (he could even say "hocus pocus") and if he had a spirit familiar ("kamereon" they might call it) there would have to be plenty of useless hilarious arguements with it.

    As far as how effective Asano's or anyone's powers (for that matter) would have to be in order to be considered "usefull". The only benchmark is that of an unseated shinigami as presumably many of them will be fighting in the winter battle. Kubo Tite could oscillate between portraying the "small battles" (Don Kan Onji's crew, Tatsuki, Asano, non-seated shinigami, etc.) and the "large battles" (you know who, etc.).

    And for the record, writing this post entertained me. One of the advantages of being retarded.

    (Holy wall of text batman!)

    Though I still don't want asano to get powers, if he did I could imagine his fighting style as similar to Ganju's. In that he uses all sorts of lame tricks on his opponent, but because his opponents never take him seriously, they still fall victom to his "techniques."
