    while Captains don't in Bankai. It's all because they aren't wearing a captain's Haori. :amuse

    how many bankai have we seen anyways? hitsugaya has an ice dragon coat around him so that rules him out and byakuya had those wings of light when he used his white imperial sword bankai. tousen is the only one who doesn't get a change of appearance when using bankai (and maybe komamura but we haven't seen much about his banklai anyways)

    Hitsugaya's isn't clothing. That coat IS his Bankai. Ditto for Byakuya. Both Tousen and Komamura don't get one either. Ichigo and Renji's coats don't do anything, but Hitsugaya's and Byakuya's can definitely be used to fight.

    Someone has raised this issues long time ago.
    I also think that their captain cloak has something to do with the BanKai coats

    It's because they lack ginger pubic hair.

    however they change appearance in bankai mode. it probably means that it depends on the bankai

    yeah, there must be some explanation to this. that beast guy goes bankai, nothing changes, tousen goes bankai- nathing changes. byakuya- nothing changes.

    besides that, i wonder after finishing the bankai fight, what does ichigo do bout his cloth? why not wear it all the time. it sure looks way cooler than his normal shinigami cloth.

    Well it's all logical really

    Magic.

    I dunno. Because they look cooler that way?

    I can't think of anything beyond pure aesthetics for Ichigo and Renji to have different clothes in bankai.

    Since Captains usually have bankai before getting their position, I don't believe it's the coat. heh

    My guess, it that it just depends on the person. :amuse

    @matricha: I've always wanted to see Ichigo go from Bankai to Normal. I wonder what it looks like.{Getting his shinigami top kimono back}

    Something I've always wondered is... what happens to the coats when they turn the Bankai off? Do they just vanish along with the Bankai? That'd be pretty funny to see :amuse

    If not, I guess they could always donate them to the poor or something

    Given that non-Captain Ikkaku didn't get a new costume, the only logical conclusion is that the Captain robe has absolutely nothing to do with it. From there on, there are two differences between Ichigo/Renji and the others. The first is that they're main characters. The second is that they're the only characters to have achieved Bankai during the series itself.

    Take your pick.

    i also wouldnt mind to see it once in a while. i guess it is just a hole in the manga, cant explain some stuff. i will just close my eyes and let it slip away and enjoy the show.

    me and my friends have disscussed this issue before it is becos just going bankai in the normal shinigami uniform is well.. gay, all the captians have their haoris but the others do not, so ichigo gets his black coat, renji gets his baboon skin and ikkaku loses his shirt, therefore making the top half is their bodies different that the average shinigami thus adding to the effect of thier bankai forms :)

    Maybe he takes it off and throws it somewhere and somewhere there's a pile of his bankai clothes. Or maybe it's like Superman :)

    The Reason Ichigo has the long pause between the BAN and the KAI is because he switches out his Shinigami Gi for the Bankai Cloak given to him by old Man Zangetsu!

    BAN!.............*Changes outfit*....................KAI!!!!

    With Ichigo's bankai, he becomes Zangetsu and he gets the Novice cape. Renji skins his ape and wears it.

    ^I think that is pretty much it; related to the nature of their relationship with their swords. Not necessarily a stronger bond, but perhaps more intimate, allowing aspects of the spirits to be realized further at total release.
