    Default Ichigo's Bankai

    Hey I was thinking about the trial that Ichigo had to go under to get his bankai, and I was thinking, how hard was it to find a katana out of various huge irregular shaped swords?

    Unless he had to break all of the swords and then his bankai would pop up out of no where...

    I like to think that Ichigo just went for all the daiklaves and huge assed katanas and just ignored the little one until it was the last one left.

    Just Ichigo being Ichigo...

    My opinion is that it was merely an experience excersize for Ichigo. As he gained experience, he better learned how to combat a single man and moved on to multiple men. And since a zanpakuto and it's abilities are a reflection on the user's character, it may be like that one saying i think i got from DBZ "Know your enemy and know yourself. Once you do that, all will become clear" and from somewhere else, "Your greatest enemy is yourself... Conquer yourself and you conquer all". And perhaps the exersize was also to show Ichigo (and pound it in his head) that it isn't about the weapon's size, shape, or power but the swordsman and his ability to use it. And he also practiced his ShiKai blast. So the only reason he had to go through all the katanas and swords was so that he'd realize that it isn't the sword that matters at all, but how its used. Of course, Ichigo started out in the beginning looking for the one that most resembled his ShiKai and those all broke almost immediately. And when he ndiscrimately chose swords but instead relied on tactics, the swords lasted longer and longer until it was Zangetsu's sword that broke. And ta-da, bankai.

    I think that since the zanpakuto are a reflection of the weilder's personality, that the purpose of the exersize was simply to put an inordiante amount of pressure on Ichigo until he found the solution to his dillemma and INVENTED his bankai on the spot. Zangetsu was born from Ichigo's personality and did not exist before Ichigo did. Why would the nature of the sword's abilities be already in existence? Discovering the abilities of his sword is more of a creative process than anything else.

    agree with singnflip4life " geez, wtf is that nickname ", the thing of " you must found my real me to achieve bankai " is just a way to keep ichigo fighting over and over, i don't think he acquiered bankai by a lucky pull of the right sword, that'll just suck.

    i agree with both of yous. all the swords signified something. he had to overcame all of them, then he would achieve bankai. i believe a little down the line they will show how he achieved it.

    nah... i dont think theyll show it... its a mystery for a hero eh... im mad it was so cliche how he showed up at the last second even tho he had time to change his clothes and everything

    and wasnt he bleeding profusely while he ws fighting Zangetsu... suddenly hes all better when hes savin rukias sorry butt... lack of continuity


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    Default I think, that...

    If you watched 58 part of anime with attention, you sow, that only love to Rukia (tears of Ichigo when she was forced to come back to Soul Society, memories of her) gave him ability to achieve Bankai. Trainings just give him an opportunity to understand himself and his feelings.
    PS Sorry for my poor english

    or he went to the hot spring that heals all wounds

    and the yea it didnt matter which sword he had he just had to realize that knowing was on a more personal level than just seeing the way it looks(i no its choppy but im tired)
