^ nah, he doesn't think we're stupid. I bet he doesn't think about readers worldwide AT ALL.
Why would he?
As you wrote shonen is his target demographic. It's the -kids- that vote for bleach in sj questionaries and make it so popular.
So, in order to gain moar money he has to please them, and not us.
and we know that most kids care more about KEWL STUFFZ than about logic.
Interesting that Ichigo said one bankai can stop another bankai yet Aizen stops his bankai with his finger. I am getting the impression Zangetsu is a one trick pony since he has yet to show or teach Ichigo anything new since the SS arc.
^so? what he said doesnt exclude the possibility of finger block.
im guessing there isnt much scope for zangetsu there...maybe a little chain extension, or that jedi trick he did against ulquiorra, but apart from that, all kubo needs to draw ichigo fights is black ink splashes.
that is so true. Since the moment I saw Ichigo's Bankai way back then I thought it was cheap, too cliche' to have his Bankai be "unique'' so everybody has a big Bankai and his had to be small. But the worst part was his useless ability, heck Kenpachi can throw an energy wave without knowing his Zanpaktou's name...and Ichigo's only ability is that useless thing...

I just thought of Ichigo coming up with a move that's like the black Getsuga moon looking blast except it would be one swing and a million crescent black getsuga moons shoot out.
Something lame like that would be something Kishi might do.
