I think that's the whole point. He finds himself and SS in such a bad situation that he has no more choice than eat his pride and ask Ichigo for help.

Anyway, this is getting off topic. I really don’t care all that much what your opinion is but don’t try to degrade my intelligence. I understood what mix message you were trying to get across with your last post but to me all I heard was, “The best opinion is no opinion at all.” The people of this forum will most likely be negative the majority of the time because of how hard Kubo trolls his readers, but we continue to read because we like Bleach. We can be upset and angry at something and still like it. We vent on the forums because we care about this series. If you can’t understand that than maybe you're at the wrong forum.

all of what you mentioned as not happening will certainly happen. It's true that Yama-jii is probably the only named character to die so far in this arc.
Oh, how quickly we forget about poor, poor Choujiro. But yeah, Yamamoto's joining his lieutenant. Byakuya and Kenpachi are the only other captain's shown in danger of death atm. Really, it seems more like Kenpachi is just KO'd. Byakuya's in really bad shape, but close to death might as well be a clean bill of health in Bleach. I can't remember the last character to die slowly from losing too much blood.

I agree. It shows that his character has grown over the series, but I actually think that Byakuya will thank Ichigo, once everything is said and done. He might have to do it behind closed doors, but I can see him being grateful to Ichigo for taking care of a situation where he was easily subdued.

Well, Juha Bach said that they were going to retreat, I don't know if that entails the nameless Quincies wrecking up the place. I kind of doubt it, but then it wouldn't make sense to have all of your putties continuing the fight when the "Zero Squad" is supposed to appear. Then again, we're talking about a villain who has killed his own followers, so I think anything goes.

i guess i can reluctantly accept that choujiro is a named character

he's slightly above a fodder shinigami being named right before being cut down i suppose

I wonder if Juha Bach can steal Ichigo's bankai.

^ Well, technically, Ichigo shouldn't have a bankai to begin with since he has broken off his ties with Zangetsu when he went Mugetsu. (i.e., what we see right now is not a standard Bankai that a Shinigami usually has, so we are not sure if his Bankai is qualified for theft by those Quincy.)

Aww, what the heck. I know I previously stated that I don't intend on debating this point, but I think I'm feeling more in the mood now.

Ichigo was indeed confirmed to have retained and reawakened shiniagmi powers during the fullbring arc. So it remains within the realm of possibility that Zangetsu didn't go anywhere (since he's the manifestation of those very powers). When Zangetsu stated that using FGT would cut ties with him, he may have only been referring to the consequent loss of Ichigo's reiatsu and shinigami powers having not known at the time that Ichigo would eventually reawaken that latent energy. What I'm basically suggesting is that either Zangetsu may have been wrong (when you consider the circumstances under which he made those statements), or we may have drawn two different interpretations of Zangetu's words and what they mean for Ichigo's powers.

I know I've stated this before, but I think it remains equally possible that Ichigo's bankai can't be stolen for the same reason why no one but Juha Bach could steal Yamamoto's bankai--There isn't anyone who's spiritual energy is powerful enough to accomplish the task.

If Ichigo has Zangetsu right now, why hasn't he talked with him yet?

Because we have to fight the main boss at least once before we get to resolve an inner conflict/training session!

Bassoonicmayhem kind of alluded to the answer I was going to give. We only see him talk to Zangetsu when he's in a major bind. Ever since Ichigo's regained his shinigami powers from Rukia and co., he's had an easy time against the enemies he's faced up until he got trapped in that cage. (And who knows what happened while he was in there?)

Instead, a question I would pose is why hasn't Ichigo yet to notice or state anything weird about using getsuga tenshou & bankai without being able to feel Zangetsu's presence--assuming Zangetsu really is gone forever? And how could a hollow-based power (such as fullbring) be able to manifest shinigami-based abilities? Thanks to Kubo's interviews, we also know that Ichigo has now resumed his substitute related duties (such as performing konso's). So if we assume that Ichigo is using pseudo shinigami abilities born from hollow powers, could his zanpakuto still send lost souls off to Soul Society or purify the souls of hollows?

I donít really think itís all that complicated. Ichigo has always had a hard time getting in touch with his shinigami powers. Iím pretty sure it took eight books before he learned Zangetsuís name (correct me if Iím wrongóIím doing this based on memory). Also, you have to take into account that Ichigo was human before he was a shinigami, vizored, fullbringer, ext. I've always pictured the souls in the Bleach universe in a Yin and Yang scenario. Where people (humans and shinigami) are inherently born with both yin (hollow) and yang (normal soul). Those who are aware of those powers can exploit them (fullbringers) and some will have to change once the balance beings to shift unevenly (visoreds). To me, Ichigo would always have hollow powers just because it's seemingly in human (and shinigami) nature. Since his father was a shinigami though, it kind of added to Ichigo's favor (in my weird system). And because Isshin was able to regain his powers, what would stop Ichigo from eventually regaining his (since he's apparently half-in-half)?

Also, Iíve always been under the impression that Ichigo got Zangetsuís powers back when he did the fullbringer training. (That was the deal, wasnít it? I know it was all some sort of backwards trick that failed, but please, correct me if Iím wrong.) He just hasnít got in touch with this new version of Zangetsu because he hasn't been in a situation dire enough (or we will flashback to the cage). And yes, I do think Zangetsu will get another face lift. Why? Iím not entirely sure. Probably because of the fullbringer training, but Iím not really questioning the fact how Ichigo is using the sword--I thought that was the reason why we had the last arc.

Ichigo's always had a hard time taking complete control over his power. But getting in touch with and communicating with zangetsu was something he had to master in order to learn bankai. I've got nothing else to say in regards to your other points.

Of course I got the sarcasm, that's why I was being condescending in the first place.

Well, that's a fair enough answer (minus the last sentence), you should have come with this instead of the unnecessary sarcasms.

My original post to you was to emulate the same tone you started with. If you want to be treated with respect and dignity than post with suchónot just call out angry fans and tell them to stop Ďwatchingí something that they read. Despite this though, Iím glad that you can understand where I and other upset fans are coming from. I rather us come to a consensus than continue this discussion. It is rather pointless and derivative by now.

Not exactly. Yorurichi used Urahara's training device to force Zangetsu to manifest. All Ichigo had to do then was fight Zangetsu into submission. He had reached a point where he was beginning to gain better understanding of Zangetsu (after fighting Kenpachi) but he had not yet learned to talk with him at will and didn't have to learn that in order to obtain his bankai.

Ichigo didn't learn proper communication with Zangetsu through jinzen until Isshin taught him right before he was about fight Aizen. Before that, he could call Zangetsu's power, but he wasn't actually communicating directly with him.

Though it hasn't been said outright, I'm guessing Zangetsu did return and Ichigo can still intuitively call on his powers like he did before though Zangetsu hasn't manifested himself yet.
