Re: Ichigo should have been trained in kidoh
Ichigo needs a complete overhaul... His Bankai isn't even all that frightening. Sure, it gives him super speed, increases his physical strength, and allows a black Getsuga... But his Bankai feats are next to null considering most of his opponents are "at least" on par with Ichigo's Bankai to begin with (and that's not considering most of his opponents has some kind of release, or Zanpaktou upgrade that would completely outclass Ichigo in hollow form). Hell in order to fight, Ichigo has to use Bankai because his initial strengths are so low.
It seems for Ichigo to fight "near" Shikai level of Shunsui, Ichigo needs to use Bankai and hollow Mask... That's a shame since Ichigo has to go pretty much all out to reach just a fraction of a top Captain's ability. Again, Ichigo needs work all around. Bankai was supposed to be this special thing as Ichigo is forced to use it after some ground breaking action (or, after his opponent releases)... It wasn't something to just toss around. One of the reasons was because his body couldn't handle it (that was interesting, as it meant Ichigo would have to fight normally for a while before he would even think about using Bankai).
But now, Ichigo enters Bankai at the start of every fight (doesn't leave much for surprises anymore, or the awe factor). That's a shame and its even more of a shame that when Ichigo's in Bankai, he gets his ass kicked right away...
Ichigo's Bankai wouldn't look so lame if his Shikai was up and running most of the time. Ichigo needs to revert back to the way he was when he was facing Byakuya... He was sweet then because Kubo made the fight suspenseful (with Ichigo drawing out his Bankai because he was pressured by his opponent's Bankai)... Now, Kubo is making Byakuya look leagues better than Ichigo in combat just because Byakuya doesn't automatically rely on Bankai to start things off...
All I can say is that Ichigo needs to be more versed in his base form. His Bankai powers up his base stats. If his base stats are low to begin with, his Bankai would just make him a little bit more of an opponent, but that's it... Ichigo needs to be strong before Bankai... But at this point, Kishi screwed up Ichigo's strength development with what I stated above. I don't know how Kubo is going to fix it, as it's kind of late in the series. Ichigo's fighting ability is all messed up... The major problem is point one, his Shikai, or base form. I don't know how Kubo can make a mistake like that... I mean anyone could see how that would play out if not worked on.lol
I don't even think he needs Kido. He just needs his skills to be better... It's that simple folks...
