Dont you think that Ichigo's Bankai is overated?
i've already searched the forum for similar threads and didnt anyone (3 pages poped up when i seached for ichigo + bankai)
What does Ichigo's bankai really do?
i searched on wikipedia and came across this :
As explained by Byakuya Kuchiki, Ichigo's final release is a compression of his power, rather than a vast expansion as other final releases are. This hugely compressed power enables Ichigo to move at speeds exceeding those of flash steps, and gives him matching agility and reflexes, allowing him to use his natural strength to its limits. Ichigo's initial inexperience with controlling his final release led to a serious drawback; the force of his compressed spiritual power caused all of his bones to crack, gradually decreasing his speed and power over time. This drawback has not been mentioned since its introduction, so it has presumably been overcome.
BUT when Ichigo was fighting Byakuya, he was able to fight him in shikai mode without getting pwned. And when he finally went bankai he was running around to show his speed and he was so fast that he caught Byakuya off-guard (Ichigo placed his sword on Byakuya's neck.) but when they were fighting it didnt seem like ichigo was any faster or stronger than Byakuya. atleast for me it looked like they were fighting rather equally. I know that because of Ichigo's inexperience he cant maintain bankai for that long, but dont you think ichigo should have been able to beat Byakuya up before he gets weaker?
If he had used the speed he showed us at first all the time, i think he should be able to beat Byakuya and his new opponents with no problem.. Or atleast hit them with some kind of UltraSuperFastCombo :P dont you think?
I know most of you dont know what the point in making this thread is, so ill make what im "asking" for clearer.
If ichigo's bankai "releases" Ichigo's "true powers" making him stronger and MUCH more faster.(Like when he was running around the first time he used bankai.) Why doesnt it look that way? He is like superfast but the fighting is the same.
Please share your thoughts...
