i have heard alot about him and i havent watched into the anime very far so can some1 tell me?
Here's a picture of Hollow Ichigo ... also known as Shirosaki
Also appears in:
39 (w.o hollow mask)
59 (with hollow mask)
82 (with hollow mask)
what does he do?
exactly how far??? well hollow ichigo is the hollow form of ichigo.......
he comes out of ichigo in bankai form and lives with zangetsu....
you mean he transforms into a hollow?
also what are his powers?
he uses diffrent tactics and has a diffrent zangetsu type blast.........he also has a diffrent voice...and yes ichigo turns into hollow ichigo when he is to weak or is about to die
In the anime, Hollow Ichigo comes out when Ichigo looses strength. Emotional, physical, mental... any one of these can lead to him emerging. When this happens, the hollow mask begins to form over Ichigo's face. His eyes turn gold and black, and his voice changes.
If spoilers by the cannon manga bother, then dont read the following
In the manga, it is revealed that Hollow Ichigo has over taken 'old man' Zangetsu (The form that Zangetsu has appeared in for most of the story). He is Zangetsu, and has always been a part of him. It is unknow why/how he exists. The running theory is that he is the result of Ichigo undergoing Urahara's training to regain his shinigami powers.
As a result, a part of him became a hollow... and that part of him, was reflected in his Zanpakuto. Since Zanpakuto are, in and of themesleves, living entities, it is not surprising that a Zanpakuto could develope like this.
In the current 'main' ark, it was revealed that because of the Hollow inside of him, Ichigo is a 'Vizard' (It is spelled different ways by different people). These 'Vizared' are shinigami who have illegally obtained Hollow powers. In doing so, they have broken down the barrier between Shinigami and Hollow, allowing them to excede the normal power restraints that exist on both groups.
Just a little while ago, Ichigo had to do battle with Hollow Ichigo, and defeat him, or he would be consumed by Hollow Ichigo and become a hollow, and would then be killed as a result. Ichigo fought Hollow Ichigo and defeated him. Now, he has the ability to summon Hollow Ichigo's hollow mask, and there by increase his strength... to what degree, it is unclear yet. However, as yet, he is only able to hold the 'transformation' for 16 seconds.
That answer your question?
i think we got it covered
Hollow Ichigo, dont get snippy with me. I saw the thread and posted what I knew. Dont make me wip out Kagetsuki on you!
You know he only comes out when Ichigo is nearly going to die !
He can't live on without ichigo living on.
Ergo Ichigo will never die
Actually no, he normally comes out when Ichgio's going to die but he has tried to come out other times
He acts as a subtle protector too as seen twice I beleive in the soul-society arc. When after Ichigo beat both Renji and Kenpachi it was stated that his wounds would have been fatal had not a mask been under his shinigami garb to slightly lessen the force of the blows. The mask resembles that of a hollow's. Odd thing was that after the Renji fight he threw the mask away only to have it re-appear in his robes to save him while fighting against Kenpachi.
(Haven't read past the Soul-Society arc in the Manga) I *think* this is hollow Ichigo saving Ichigo from dieing because as he states it would be "Troublesome" If Ichigo died.
i meant that with your post we got it covered...not that we already had it covered and you added more usless info.....
what do you mean who is Hollow Ichigo? Your Name is Hollow Ichigo
im not the one asking the question.....
im here to explain.....JEEZ!!!!
Sorry... I misunderstood you.
Onrik... you could put it that way. After all, before Ichigo subdued him, Hollow Ichigo was working toward taking Ichigo over. He wanted to take physical form and... well, be Kenpachi to the ultimate factor! If Ichigo hadnt subdued him, everyone would have died. The only thing protecting everyone, was the 'Vizard', and their plan to kill him if he didnt succeede.
thats ok....but hoe do we know if he even saw this info? 0_o
All we know is that he did something that got him banned...
It is that simple.
The more times he appear to control Ichigo before he dies the more control he has to control him.
the hollow ichigo has his own personality, it is just like valkyrie profile 2 Silmeria, two souls living in one body. How did he obtain it? maybe when he was at the stage of becoming a shinigami, remember he became a hollow first.
hes a fellow Naruto Fourmer...... Hollow Ichigo is Ichigo in his Hollow form....
Could any of you post more pics of him in this form? Or point me to a site that has them?
I am fascinated by this concept. I thought it was the best part (aside from the rest of the fight) in the Soul Society arc.
