Ichigo and Co VS Remaining SS Captains
from the direction the 221 chapter thread is going i belive this is needed... i want to see how many people are ignorant enough to seriously believe that Ichigo is actually stronger than any of the remaining SS Captains. After defeating his hollow side/Zangetsu (?) suddenly it LOOKS like ichigo is stronger, but remember he was fighting himself. he didnt need much more power to overcome him! please stop ranting like this manga, no matter how shounen it is, is bad because Ichigo gets stronger as time passes! if youre foolish enough to think that Ichigo is gonna A) fight the espada alone, B) Defeat those espada (=_=), C) not train for a decent amount of time because of what he got from "Kenpachi", or D) learn some new mega techinique that will give him an unfair advantage... youre a fucking moron!
there are still 9 captains left in SS and one captain on earth whos power we DO NOT KNOW THE EXTENT OF!!! minus Byakuya and Kenpachi Ichigo never fought any of the other ones and we still dont know how strong Yamamoto, Shunsui, and Ukitake are cuz weve NEVER seen them fight! nevermind the fact that Yourichi and Kisuke are still on earth yet to do anything and we know that theyre stronger than Ulquilloa (sp?). AND the fact that we dont know what happens when Toushiros Bankai loses its 12th petal.
i am a firm believer in KTs storytelling abilities and as a hater of shounen manga his work has kept me compelled and interested against my better judgement! i doubt he would be as lame as to suddenly increase Ichigos power in a unique and quick way cuz thatd just be LAME!!! (the Youruichi training was the same training that Kisuke did so it was validated)...
give him a chance there are still tons of characters to explore and many ways this could turn out!
... oh and to answer my own title question, Ichigo would get totally owned by the SS Captians... hes strong but hes hella far away from their level, stop downplaying them like you know how strong they really are.
phew... that took too long to write.
