    Default developing a relationship with a zanpaktou

    through the series, we have learned that zanpaktou are sentient spirits within soul slayers. each has a different personality as well as a different form ranging from, personality wise, quiet, conceited, lazy, prideful and form wise, monkey with a snake tail, a person, etc.

    now to tap the strength of your zanpaktou, you need to first develop a relationship with it (most importantly through bankai). ichigo seems to have a master-student relationship (at least with zangetsu). now if ichigo is able to do that - could a shinigami develop romantic feelings for one's zanpaktou? if one can care for a zanpaktou, could one possibly fall in love with their zanpaktou's inner spirit?

    i know it sounds weird - what do you guys think?

    A zanpakuto's avatar is essentially a piece of the shinigami's soul. The personality of the avatar usually being based off a specific characteristic of the shinigami which is why Rangiku's is lazy and Yumichika's is conceited.

    Ichigo's zanpakuto spirit, Zangetsu, I figure, is sort of like a much older Ichigo...

    Seeing how the zanpakuto's inner spirit is a part of the shinigami, falling in love with it would be like falling in love with... yourself... Which is already quite weird... Actually having a separate physical representation of your soul and falling in love with it is just... too weird... and by wierd I mean disturbingly wrong.

    what about kaname? his zanpaktou was not originally his - it was his lover's right? the part that i know is that he took her zanpaktou after something happened to her and began to follow the "righteous" path.

    since, like you said, a zanpaktou is a part of the person's soul, could he fall in love with his zanpaktou's avatar because it is not HIS soul that is in it, but the soul of his loved one?

    he's kinda the reason why i brought it up - but i'm not just limiting the relationship question just to him.

    yeah yer right about it being kinda weird falling in love with a piece of yourself, but isn't that what narcissists are? (j/k) thanks for yer input.

    what about other people?

    Tousen't sword was "reseted" when he grabbed it and started using it. That is why his techiniques and bankai are adapted for him. So basically, the only way for it to happen is that you fell in love of, yourelf, which is plausible but...well...I think I already answered your question.

    first of all, a zanpaktou IS a soul slayer; they don't reside within one because that's what they are. What you probably mean is that zanpaktou ARE sentient spirits.

    anyway, just as everyone else says, the zanpaktou is essentially a manifestation of the shinigami's soul and their spiritual energy. It would be *weird* to fall in love with oneself like that (and Yumichika doesn't really count, 'cause its narcissism).

    Why did I know a thread like this would eventually happen. So are they going to make love to their zanpaktous now? Uh, oh...unpleasant image lol. I don't think it would happen. It is possible. People have fallen in love so to speak with inanimate objects, so why not a sentient sword. At least you can talk to it, though thats kinda like talking to yourself.

    Well since we're on the topic of zanpakuto sex, what do you think would happen if two spirits got together? Would they make a baby zanpakuto?
