    I've actually been wondering about that too. I accepted that the hollows could fly since that was placed in right from the start. But now it seems like every damn body can fly and there was no explanation of it whatsoever. At least for Ichigo, seeing that he had to use an item BEFORE to fly...im wondering why he can just do it all dbz now.

    Like the Bleach movie, where he slowed his speed by grabbing an "air" ground...and just went bankai while standing on an invisible platform...wtf...

    If I had a dollar for every time I've had to explain this... I'd probably have about $35.

    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.

    i get that but my question was why did he need the cloak to be stand in the air to save rukia but he didnt need the cloak to stand in the air against his fight with byakuya because if he could have done it against byakuya then why use the cloak to help save rukia

    but it wouldve been more dramatic if he didnt have the cloak cuz then every1 wouldve thought wow a ryoka can actually do that and byakuya hmm so a weakling like him can even achieve that

    1. That would be horribly out of character and dumb. If he wasn't impressed by him punching through 3 vice-captains, why would he be impressed by Ichigo air-walking, an ability that EVERYONE has?

    2. Cloaks are inherently awesome.

    He was only in the air because he had flown there with the flight cape thing.
