Yea that'll be good enough. His spiritual form could keep the hole.
Forgot all about his real body, Kon must be going crazy with that thing.
How I do missed Kon.
The only problem with his spiritual form keeping the hole is that the real body reflects the changes (damages and such) that the spiritual body undergoes. So although it would be cool for his spirit to keep it, his real body would suddenly get this big hole in his chest and he would die... and be back to his spiritual form.
It would be fun if it could be worked out though.
Remember, Ichigo's reiatsu is contagious. So maybe he could still attend school if he leaks enough reiatsu so that everybody can see shinigami.
Haha that would be troublesome if that's the case. ^^ Some might even freak out seeing hollows, arrancars and vaizards.
urahara would probably stuff a pillow into the hole and voila!!! but you know what??? that would be lame, so lol. that's bleach for you.
Oh, forgot about Kisuke. He might actually get a Gigai. Considering its not his body, I dont think a hole will form.
no, no, actually i meant that the hole might be healed. the hole was made by ulquiorra blasting it into him, and when he went into hollow mode, it only meant it was convenient for the hollow, to have a hole already there.
so i was wondering if, by going into hollow mode, will the hole seal up when he turns back? of course, inoue could heal him if he still had it, but still. i was guessing that the hollow's spiritual pressure and strength would seal up the injury after he's back. the last time ichigo got a hole, it disappeared when he managed to regain control, so im quite sure it'll be the same this time.
put it this way; i thought that if the gaping injury was still there, ichigo would turn back into his normal form, sway awhile, then realize he's still got a huge injury in his chest, before collapsing.
