Vaizard vs. Arrancar - The Soul Within
I have this thought floating in my head and it might be difficult for me to explain in a simple manner but hopefully your own intelligence can fill in the gaps for me.
First I'll lay out some facts:
- A shinigami has a good soul/spirit inside of him
- A Vaizard has a good soul/spirit inside of him as well as an evil soul/spirit (hollow) inside of him
- A Vaizard has to subdue the hollow inside of him to keep him from taking over and doing evil things...
- A vaizard has a mask; an arrancar has a sword
- A zanpakutou has a soul/spirit which is why it has a name and must be called and understood for the power to really be used efficiently
OK so now here's my inquiry.
Do normal hollows have spirits inside of them? (whether they or hollow spirits like how a vaizard has or just simply evil spirits...)
It would make sense for an Arrancar that has obtained Shini powers to have a zanpakutou soul inside of him since thats what a zanpakutou would signify...that you have a sword's spirit within you.
So now if normal hollows DONT have spirits inside of them, why da hell do you turn into a Vaizard and get one...? Is the hollow inside of Ichigo an actual hollow or is it a hollow spirit that is normal amongst normal hollows just as a zanpakutou spirit is normal amongst normal shinigami. (since im saying zanpakutou spirit, maybe i should say mask spirit as well???)
So now, does a shinigami ALWAYS have a spirit within him? Like before Rukia and Renji became shinigami...did they have a spirit inside them while they were normal Rukongai members...then as they went to the academy and developed spirits within them...?
It was in another thread somewhere that a Arrancar might also have to force the shinigami powers out of the new shini soul inside him so i guess my main confusion is:
Just as an Arrancar taps into shini-powers and gains the zanpakutou soul within him thats normal amongst shinigami, why do Vaizard who've obtained hollow-powers gain an hollow/mask(?) soul within them thats not normal (or maybe we dont know yet) amongst hollows? Are the souls inside Vaizards actually hollow creatures and can be manifested just like a zanpakutou at a certain stage or are they just hollow spirits that replace ur zanapkutou's spirit (like how anti-ichi pwned Zangetsu)
[im wondering if the stronger Arrancar can manifest their zanpakutou spirits also...]
So either I've found a weird plot hole or im just forcefully confusing myself.
Aizen is gangsta for making everyone wear white.
Tousen: "So what are we going to wear anyway? how do we tell each other apart from the shinigami?"
Aizen: "I GOT IT....lets wear exactly what they wear...but make it WHITE!"
Ichimaru: "OH SH*T, now THATS gangsta!"
Tousen: "....even I wouldn't say that..."
Aizen: "Loosen up Tousen...check this out...lets show him Gin!"
Tousen: "... 0_0 ..."
