This whole chapter we, alongside Ichigo, were trying to figure out what is the deal with this Zengetsu being Juha Bach thing. I can’t say that either us or Ichigo achieved success.
What happened was that Juha’s spirit, that I will refer to as old Zangetsu, existed inside Ichigo as his quincy power. It tried to suppress Ichigo’s shinigami power, for some reason that was not explained properly. But even so old Zangetsu didn’t want Ichigo to have his shinigami powers, he helped him train as shinigami. And for that he used the hollow inside Ichigo. This hollow, as we learned, represents Ichigo’s true power… or maybe not.
Anyway, the point is that old Zangetsu was getting in the way of Ichigo’s progress. But now he disappeared. What?..
And now Ichigo can have his real power. What is his real power, I have no idea. We were taught that his real zanpakuto is a hollow. Does it mean that his hollow powers are his real power? Or does it mean that there is some yet new power inside of him?
This manga can be confusing. But knowing Kubo we will get a demonstration of the new Ichigo’s power sooner or later. Till then, see you (^_^)/
