    Default 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...

    *Sorry for my bad english^^

    Overrated? No. But it has potential - and as soon as that potential is realized I think your position will change

    =D

    Overrated may have been the wrong word to use:P but i hope you guys know what i mean

    I think he should be using his speed more in his attacks, wouldnt it be cool if he saw other peoples attacks in slowmotiion?

    Doesn't really help if everyone knows sonido (or the equivalent ability in whatever faction they're from).

    Still, he seems at least a bit faster than Grimmjow, and Grimmjow seems to be built for speed.

    actually, based on his released form, I kinda half expected grimjoww to have an attack where he turns into a ball

    Well, he´s fighting the espada which are supposed to be several times stronger (and likely also faster) than shinigami captains. So i guess his better speed is many times faster than that of a shinigami, but against the espada it´s just enough to catch up with their speed (and with his mask he´s surpassing them a bit).

    Don't forget the uber-speed pwnage of Dordonni. Ichigo does raep people with pure speed.

    Thats a good theory! i think you're right...

    I forgot about Dordonni ;O but that was with his mask, wasnt it?

    if he is that fast but why he was beaten by grimmjow when they 1st met, he sliced the hand of that 10th espada which they all call it the "iron skin"..and i read the manga that ulquueire (forgot the spelling) the 3rd espada the one with the "eye" said ichigo's reiutsu surpasses his, and in the lastest chapters ichigo wears his mask and take on the released grimmjow which is 6th espada. 3rd espada is equals to 2 6th espada right?

    You're right, Ichigo is strong... but weak at the same time ^^
    I guess he has alot of power, but doesnt know how to use it all right...
    Like StealDragon said, he has potential
