Let's Talk Bleach! Part 15b: Zangetsu

Hey y'all, it's Mrlmm0605 coming to talk to you about Bleach! This is not a discussion of individual episodes or chapters; rather, it is a look at the main ideas of Bleach, illustrated using examples from the story to prove a point. It is to be noted that, as this blog uses examples from Bleach fiction to make its point, there are unmarked spoilers contained throughout, so read at your own risk. Also, this blog is NOT a replacement for the Wiki's pages on the subject of discussion; I will not tell you what something is, but I will discuss what I think it means. The thoughts portrayed below will not be embraced by everyone, and I welcome dissenting opinions in the comments. Please, keep all responses within the confines of Bleach Wiki's Policies and the Wikia Terms of Use.

I'm sick so this will be short. I will make it better later.

This blog is about Zangetsu, Ichigo's Zanpakutō/inner Hollow thing. He initially manifests as a Hollow within Ichigo's soul, that sought to possess Ichigo's body and took control of the body of the boy when he passed out in combat in order to finish the fight. Later on, Ichigo trained with the Visored to gain the ability to tap into his Hollow powers at will, boosting all of his attributes for a limited, then seemingly limitless, period of time, The inner Hollow was later revealed to be the true spirit of Ichigo's Zanpakutō, Zangetsu. It has yet to make a real reappearance since this revelation about two years ago.

Zangetsu, unlike Ichigo, actually plays into the themes of Bleach, namely the idea that every character has the capacity for both good and evil. In Ichigo's case, he uses Zangetsu for noble aims, so he is viewed as good. Other characters, such as Zaraki and Byakuya, are similarly good despite their inner vices, while others like Coyote Starrk and Kaname Tōsen are viewed as evil despite their good points. A bit cliche, but then so is Ichigo's entire character.

Since I'm sick, this is all I got. Poll is also gonna be pretty basic. Feel free to comment on Zangetsu's whole deal below, and I'll see you for a regular installment number 16 on Friday, health permitting.
