People with powers of soul reapers are called shinigami in the bleach anime. They usually fights with the blade.
After getting the powers of the soul reaper, Soul society took Rukia from the human world to the soul society because it was illegal to share the powers of a soul reaper with a human. Now Ichigo is furious to save Rukia from getting killed in the soul society.
Every soul reaper has their own sword and they have a name when soul reaper can call the name of their sword they can use special powers hidden within their blade in the form of a living soul known as Shikai.
Bankai is the second stage of evolution of the blade that soul reapers call Bankai. from Shikai to Bankai powers increase from 10-20 times from their original powers.
It takes hundreds of years for a soul reaper to master his Bankai, But there is another shortcut developed by Kiske Urahara developed and tasted on himself in which a soul reaper can master the Bankai in just 3 days.
Ichigo Kurosaki managed to master his bankai in a matter of just 3 days and also defeated his first opponent Byakuya Kuchki. Although that was not his true bankai, we will talk about his true Bankai later in the article.
The name of his Bankai is Tensa Zangetsu
Ichigo has the powers of a shinigami and hollow since his mother’s soul was bound by the hollow and a shinigami father he inherited both of their properties and became a shinigami with hollow powers and after mastering the Bankai his hollow powers began to appear.
Shinigami with Hollow’s powers was no coincidence since it was the plan of Aizen same from the start, Aizen was the one who created the situation to become everything like this.
There was a group in the soul society that was exiled along with the Kiske Urahara they were the experimental projects of Urahara and it include Captain the Gotai 13 division 5. They all are called the Visords since they are the soul reapers who have mastered the powers of a hollow.
The hollow inside Ichigo was no ordinary hollow it was White from the experiment of Aizen, so it was very difficult to control, even though they tried and managed to control it for the first time.
When the hollow inside Ichigo was released, it caused tremendous disasters and spiritual pressure became so dense that ordinary shinigami couldn’t even handle it.
