Ichigo's bankai that we just saw in episode 58 was just like one portion of it, in the next episode they will show us his true bankai's power.Originally Posted by Xephon*** SPOILERS ***
first my reaction:
OMG SO COOL. He just omgwtfbbqpwnd Byakuya - IN THE FACE.
Alright, sorry, I'm composed now. For the more rational side of this post:
First Zangetsu's attack:
Getsuga Tenshou: Moon's Fangs Slices Heaven
Very cool, fits in with Ichigo's fighting style of pure power. Makes sense.
Tensa Zangetsu: Heavenly Chains Slicing the Moon
First I found it hilarious that his bankai's name translates into slicing the moon, since a few episodes previous when Byakuya fought Renji, Byakuya referenced himself as the moon that Renji would never be able to reach/touch. So, for his Bankai to specifically be named for slicing the moon, it made me grin ear-to-ear (HATE Byakuya ) .
I also found his Bankai's technique of extreme power condensed down into a regular sword size so ironic when you consider Ichigo's fighting style. He's all about more power/bigger explosions. But his Bankai, what (so far) should be his ultimate technique, is so small that Byakuya finds it impossible to even be a Bankai.
Interesting stuff indeed. Can't wait for the next episode!
***EDIT: yes I know I spelled Ichigo's name wrong in the title of the thread...
