how hard would it be for them to say to ichigo "There is another level of bankai, one that no one has mastered for centuries...you might be able to do it"
you guys.......this IS shonen
its bleach.....we're hoping there's a difference.
although we have been prettty disappointed after ss arc...
ichigo should learn to fight.use the bankai,his speed,attack opponents,go for the kill,etc
I know this is a rather old post im replying to but before everyone starts flaming hear me out.
That was the first and ONLY time he slowed down during bankai.
And this is how byakuya explained(summing it all up);
"The bankai's energy compressed into such a small form made you're bones crack it made you slower."
Or something like that.He never slowed down in any other fight(Although we never quite seen him use that super shunpo that comes with his bankai in fights either) which implies that he had already countered that problem.
And elnino19 I totally agree with you.
I'm really hoping that it would be different than other shows(dragon ball for example.At first they say there's only 1 SS lvl. And then we see learn that there are 4 lvls *shudder*)
Though if ichigo will have forms to his bankai like byakuya's it would be alright i guess.After all it's not really another bankai.Just a move with a fancy name and a flamboyant glow *_*
Maybe it was in the anime >>
It's been so long since i've seen the SS arc in the anime that i must've mixed them up -.-
