    Anyway, here's the explanation:

    The characters in Bleach cannot technically fly, at least not without those flight artifacts Yoruichi and Ichigo have used, or wings like Hitsugaya and some of the hollows have had. What they CAN do, however, is walk/stand on air by projecting their spirit energy from their feet. (This is similar to how shunpo works, where they can kick off the air to keep going, and for Quincy is identical to how Hirenkyaku works, since they do it by gathering spirit particles under their feet.)

    They've always had this ability, by the way, it's nothing new. It was first mentioned in chapter 3 (ep 2) iirc, when Ichigo was fighting Orihime's brother. However, much like their ability to phase through solid matter in the physical world, it hasn't gotten much use since they've been in Soul Society.
    hahahahah 35$. seems like u explained it 35 times and u counted.

    when it seems they are flying it's more likely they are stepping on air... you know something like one piece.... for the cloak matter i think ichigo during that arc he can't do the flash step on air while in normal mode... and when he goes bankai then he can.... ichigo he wanted to beat byakuya bankai while he was in shikai that's why he wasn't on bankai....
    (well btw it was cool when ichigo saved rukia with his cloak on...)

    well i think kenpachi he doesn't know the flash step and his speed isn't enough to kick in the air.... (still i might be wrong :P)

    Several people did. Remember when Byakuya was flitting about during his fight with Renji?

    Well, I think we can assume that flying is actually faster mean of transport than running, even if you run in the air. Ya know, it's like askin why would one need a car if he can alredy walk. Or at least it's how I see that.


    Abd while we are at it I must say that I totally don't like that whole walking in the air thing. Why can't thay stay on the ground and do proper damage to surroundings instead wasting time for stupid levitation? Not to mention that it cuts all tactical possibilities connected with using terrain to gain advantage.

    You can aways fly higher then the other, and stand with your back to the sun^^

    Thus gaining twice advantage over the poor not so high flying being

    And what would be the point of Anti-Air missiles if everything stood on the ground =p

    I was pretty sure that no one can walk on the 'air' in SS simply because of the saturation of spirit particles, making everything as real as when you were a living being. You couldn't 'walk on air' while alive, so in the world after death, the same rule applies with different forces at work.

    However, in the real world and HM (saturation, but a completely different type of particle, namely one that supports and affects hollows), the number of spirit particles are greatly reduced, so it is possible to be able to achieve battle in the air. Apparently the hybridization of the hollows into arrancar allow them to follow the same rules that the shinigami follow.

    Because of these factors, only magical artifacts or wings can allow one flight in SS. Or HM (for hollows) for that matter.
