Ichi's New Hollow Form[edit]

Shouldn't something be mentioned about Ichigo's new Hollow form? You know, the one he assumes after Ulquiorra Schiffer blows a hole in his chest with his Cero Oscuro. The mask is very different from Ichigo's normal Hollow mask, and its body shape is different than the one he took transforming into a complete Hollow while training with the Vizard (horns, no tail, no shoulder spikes). —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:40, 30 March 2009 (UTC)

oh this was not put by this person but in my personal opinion and that of my friend this is not per say a new "hollow form' but ichigo's "ARRANCAR form" —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:56, 14 May 2009 (UTC)

That's WP:OR and we should refrain from putting it. DaisukeVulgar (talk) 09:41, 14 May 2009 (UTC)

Actually it shouldn't be included at all til a legit english translation of that manga or episode exists...which won't be for a while!--Licourtrix (talk) 16:53, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

Besides, Arrancar have broken masks. The mask Ichigo wore when he killed Ulquiorra was whole, not broken. (talk) 14:48, 2 October 2009 (UTC)

His mask changed again. (talk) 14:53, 16 October 2009 (UTC)

this sould be known as ichigos espada form —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:08, 10 June 2010 (UTC)

The espada are the top ten Arrancar in Aizen's service. Arrancar, as stated above, have broken masks. Ergo, it is not "ichigos espada form". It has been confirmed that that form was Ichigo's new Hollow form. Leave it at that. (talk) 21:16, 11 September 2010 (UTC)

Picture Revamp[edit]

I suggest either getting a picture of Ichigo's new Hollow form or waiting until his new mask comes out in the anime and replacing the image from the fight with Grimmjow. It's an outdated image of his Hollow mask, so we should replace it. I also think we should replace the picture of Ichigo at the top of the page: it's pixilated and of low quality. There's better pictures out there, so let's get some! (talk) 07:19, 28 April 2010 (UTC)

The current picture also helps to show his bankai, so it's not outdated. It would be better to show the images before uploading as it has to have a small resolution.Tintor2 (talk) 12:54, 29 April 2010 (UTC)
In the manga, when Ichigo uses his new mask he is also in bankai. Heck, the only time he wears his Hollow mask is when he is in bankai, so when the new mask is revealed in the anime we should switch the picture to keep it current. (talk) 19:00, 1 July 2010 (UTC)
The first time his outfit is destroyed, and in the following ones are black and white pages.Tintor2 (talk) 22:22, 1 July 2010 (UTC)
True... I guess we wait until the "Everyone vs Aizen arc" for an updated Mask + Bankai pic. (talk) 17:36, 2 July 2010 (UTC)

So should we replace the Hollow mask and bankai picture now? Theres more updated ones available. (talk) 06:48, 15 April 2011 (UTC)

Only if it is a small resolution, but I hardly see the point just because the mask design changed for the fourth time, and it's barely different.Tintor2 (talk) 11:15, 15 April 2011 (UTC)
Barely different? Going from ten black/dark red stripes to two vertical black bars is a pretty big change to me. Or do you mean in terms of what it does? In that case, I coincide that you are correct. (talk) 06:34, 22 April 2011 (UTC)
The second. Moreover, it's still just a white skull mask with details in each case and replacing it just because of a small change is unneeded.Tintor2 (talk) 13:47, 22 April 2011 (UTC)

Ichi's Forms[edit]

The latest (and apparently last) chapter has an opening picture of all of Ichigo's forms: human, sealed Zanpakuto, shikai Zanpakuto, bankai Zanpakuto, Visored, and Hollow 2.0; running together, with the foot of his next metamorphosis vanishing off the edge of the page. I suggest we include this image to show how the character has changed and developed over the course of the series. (talk) 09:26, 25 August 2010 (UTC)


Ichigo is no longer a Soul Reaper. While it hasn't been confirmed that Aizen is dead, it has been confirmed that in using the Final Getsuga Tensho, or "Mugetsu", Ichigo has lost his Soul Reaper powers. Though he could always use the Hogyoku to ractivate them, as happened to his father, that is up to Tite Kubo to Deicide. We should add that he has sacrificed his abilities to destroy Aizen. (talk) 02:30, 16 September 2010 (UTC)


Who added "Fullbuster" under the species category? Fullbring (NOT Fullbust) is a type of power, not a species. I am going to remove it. (talk) 01:58, 18 February 2011 (UTC)

  • Lead
Ichigo's character was created to replace Rukia as the lead character from the series as Kubo noted that Rukia was unsuitable to be the protagonist -> I'm a bit confused. He decided this after starting the anime and her recieving negative feedback, or while writing the series he changed courses? I'd like a bit of elaboration here.
among both fans and reviewers, and people all over the world -> I think you can do better than "people all over the world"
Ichigo is also featured -> is often featured
popularity, popular
also remarked favorably -> commented
likeness has also been released -> has been released
  • Creation
I see you elaborate more here. That's great. A little tweaking still on its wording in the lead would be appropriate
character, character
creating, created
several types attributes -> ?
of the character that were never added to the story -> not very clear
Along with Orihime Inoue, Ichigo has the hardest face to draw for Kubo -> According to Kubo
When making illustrations featuring Ichigo, he found one weird as it featured him with a cheerful smile. -> A bit awkwardly worded. Maybe "While illustrating one of Ichigo's scenes, Kubo found it difficult...
greatest strength to be that he is considerate and thoughtful -> Considerate and thoughtful nature
about him they discover that -> will
underneath he is warm and kind hearted, which attracts them -> The girls? Needs some fixing
He emphasized how every action Ichigo -> with every action, Ichigo
as well as how he feels attached to the character. -> confusing
Arrancar arc ended -> some sort of link would be nice
Kubo tried rebooting the series which resulted -> makes it sound as if he failed?
and Mona Marshall as a kid -> adolescent
as a result of the character's thoughts before his actions -> awkwardly written, difficult to understand
Bosch has liked Ichigo's character -> has enjoyed voicing Ichigo's
The last line and a half need some tidying up
    • As a fan of the series, it's definitely an interesting and clean read. I'll continue with the rest in due time. Nice work.--CallMeNathanTalk2Me 10:13, 7 May 2014 (UTC)
Thank you for your time! :) I'll give my best to solve all issues. Cheers! (Nightwolf87 (talk) 15:52, 9 May 2014 (UTC))
  • Appearances
who later was killed by Ichigo -> the sentence starts off fine and derails by this point
Karakura High School, Town, Hollow, Soul Reaper - it all needs to be linked; especially on first mention
One day, Ichigo's family is attacked by a Hollow, and Soul Reaper named Rukia Kuchiki gives her powers to him so he can save his family -> This whole sentence and the introduction of Rukia needs work
For a few months, Ichigo acts as a Soul Reaper in protecting Karakura Town from Hollows -> acts in Rukia's place as the """"
I think Soul Society should be prefaced by the. Just as the government
Byakuya Kuchiki and Renji Abarai from Soul Society -> a better introduction would be nice. Maybe describe them ass officers or something. If a reader has never watched the show, they'll have to search link every character thus far. Best tp give some sort of introduction to the plot.
Ichigo loses his powers in the process and trains with Kisuke Urahara to regain them. During his training, Ichigo learns -> Needs work. As a result of losing his battle to Kuchiki, he begins training with etc.
but also indirectly gains Hollow powers then heads off to Soul Society -> total jumpy, poor prose
Use better synonyms and prose than "fights someone"
Ichigo defeats Ikkaku and learns that. Following Ikkaku's defeat, Ichigo learns..
intends to fight him. -> could do way better
Along the way, Ichigo and Ganju take Hanatarō Yamada hostage and he shows them the way to Rukia. Ichigo fights Renji for a second time and defeats him in order to continue on.[24] After the fight, Ichigo is healed by Hanatarō and then encounters Kenpachi Zaraki. Ichigo struggles to cut the captain at first but then Zangetsu helps him find his resolve and defeat Kenpachi -> whole thing needs work
tends to Ichigo’s injuries then Ichigo goes
Ichigo fights Byakuya with temporary help from his inner Hollow, resulting in a tie and the realization of Byakuya that what Ichigo had been truly fighting is laws of Soul Society instead of him. -> confusing, run on. Needs work
the SS
and then is easily defeated by the former captain. -> and is not to be used to joint sentences or different points
Eventually, with the Hōgyoku, Aizen employs -> Using the power of the "", Aizen
an army of Arrancars with his Espadas attacking Ichigo -> run-on, poor prose
with the aid of the Visards that were members of the Soul Society until Aizen's actions forced them to live among humans. -> Visards; past members of "" before Aizen's etc.
Hollow, Hollow
Similar issues persist. Please follow this guide and perfect the rest of the article. The writing continues to be poor throughout. Also, the reception section seems to use broken and loosely adapted quotes and put into poor prose.--CallMeNathanTalk2Me 02:19, 10 May 2014 (UTC)
Hi there! :) Most issues have been solved although I think it still needs tweaking, especially in Appearance section. I removed and revamp a few minor sentence to obtain clear picture of the story. I tried to focus only on important parts from neutral point of view. Some links are updated and I added a new ones. Lead and creation sections are also revamped. Reception section is revamped but I saw in other GA fiction characters that part of the reviewers statement could be used and placed in quotation marks. Cheers! (Nightwolf87 (talk) 21:31, 19 May 2014 (UTC))
Okay mate. I made another minor copy edit and am now left to congratulate you on the article. I'm passing it. Nice job :)--PeterGriffinTalk2Me 09:52, 22 May 2014 (UTC)
Thank you so much mate! Thank you for your time and effort to help me to bring this article to GA status. I hope we can cooperate in the future. Thanks once again and cheers! :) (Nightwolf87 (talk) 15:38, 22 May 2014 (UTC))
"Ichigo fights Byakuya with temporary help from his inner Hollow, resulting in a tie and the realization of Byakuya that what Ichigo had been truly fighting is laws of Soul Society instead of him. -> confusing, run on. Needs work"
No confusion I think. If you go back to that episode, it's clearly a tie that Byakuya is standing still when having conversation with fallen Ichigo who uses up all his energy. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:49, 24 October 2014 (UTC)
