Kurosaki Isshin is Ichigo’s father.



Kurosaki Isshin is Ichigo’s father. As you can see in the image above, at the beginning of the story, he kept messing around with his son and getting beaten up…and so on. However, Isshin is the one who is messing with his son to cheer him up, and he is the one who leaves Ichigo cool lines when he visits his wife’s grave.

Kurosaki Isshin’s calm personality



Kurosaki Isshin appears early in the story as “the only incapacitated practitioner in the family.” He is a high-strung, kind father who loves his daughter, Yuz Karin, and also loves his son. He also has a loving wife, as evidenced by the fact that he keeps a poster of his late wife’s image. However, he is an excellent father who knows that Ichigo is still worried about his mother’s death and keeps a watchful eye on him from the shadows.

Although he is very high-strung in front of his children, we know that he is a kind man and a great father who worries about his children more than anyone else.

|The Identity and Past of Kurosaki Isshin



Kurosaki IsshHere we will introduce the identity and Past of Kurosaki Isshin (father of the main character KurosakiIchigo), a character in “BLEACH”. in, Ichigo’s father, has been a favorite of many fans as a lighthearted character with many gags from the beginning of the story. Kurosaki Isshin’s identity and Past were gradually revealed as the story progressed. Here we will introduce the identity and Past of Kurosaki Isshin (father of the main character Kurosaki Ichigo), a character in “BLEACH.”

Identity and Past (1) Captain of Gotei 13’s 10th Division



Kurosaki Isshin’s identity and Past is that he was the “Captain of Gotei 13’s 10th Division”. This was 20 years ago, when Kurosaki Isshin, then known as Shiba Isshin, was the Captain of Gotei 13’s 10th Squadron. His name at the time was Shiba Isshin. “He was a Shinigami/Soul Reaper. Does that mean he is dead? So, Kurosaki Isshin is a person who was even the subject of death theories among fans.

Identity and Past (2) A branch of the Shiba family

Kurosaki Isshinの過去


Kurosaki Isshin’s identity and Past are the second part of the “Shiba family branch relationship. The “Shiba family” is a fallen aristocrat in the Soul Society, and he was a member of this “branch” of the family. His name when he was Captain of Gotei 13 was not Kurosaki Isshin, but Shiba Isshin.過去の日番谷冬獅郎


So it turned out to be a “relative relationship” with Shiba Ku-Kaku, Shiba Kaien, Shiba Ganjyu, and others. And it was Matsumoto Rangiku, who was the deputy commander of the 10th. Hitsugaya Toshiro, who was already there at that time as well, was the one who became the Captain after Shiba (Kurosaki) Isshin because of his position in the third seat. This fact was known to Urahara Kisuke and Ishida Ryugen. It seems that Krosaki Hospital sometimes wrote referrals of patients to Ishida Ryugen’s hospital.

Kurosaki Isshin, who had lost his power, regained his Shinigami/Soul Reaper powers in a battle with Alankar and was resurrected as a Shinigami/Soul Reaper…as depicted in the story. The most impressive scene is when his son Ichigo is surprised that his father is a Shinigami/Soul Reaper.

Identity and Past (3) Relationship with Matsumoto Rangiku



The third is Zero Division” is the name of the royal family. the identity and Past of Kurosaki Isshin and his relationship with Rangiku Matsumoto, who was rumored by fans to be a Shinigami/Soul Reaper and possibly a Zero Division member. Zero Divisionision” is a Shinigami/Soul Reaper who performs special royal duties, and the reason for this rumor is that when Isshin met other Shinigami/Soul Reapers, he did not react at all. In reality, the reason was that he did not interact with other members of the corps.

Although he was the Captain of the 10th Division, he was also sloppy in that he skipped his duties and left all the chores to Hitsugaya Toshiro. Rangiku Matsumoto supported him. Rangiku was like a chaperone; perhaps it was watching Isshin that made the present Rangiku Matsumoto. The only serious person is Hitsugaya Toshiro, the current Captain of 10th Division.

Identity and Past (4) Relationship with Shiba Kaien



The fourth part of Kurosaki Isshin’s identity and Past is about his relationship with Shiba Kaien. Shiba Kaien, who is also Rukia’s benefactor, and Kurosaki Isshin had a very deep connection. As mentioned above, the “Shiba family” and Isshin belonged to a “branch family,” while Shiba Kaien was the “head family. Therefore, Kurosaki Isshin and Shiba Kaien were related to each other as depicted in the original story.

You may recall the scene in the story where Shiba Kaien is killed by a hollow, and the “branch” of the Shiba Kaien family, the Isshin family, is also mentioned in the original story. Isshin also seems to be responsible for the loss of Shinigami/Soul Reaper power. The Captain and vice-captain of Gotei 13, who came from a prestigious aristocratic family, may be the reason for this outcome.

Identity and Past (5) Why he left Shinigami/Soul Reaper



The fifth story about Kurosaki Isshin and why he quit Shinigami/Soul Reaper is that when he came to this world as a Shiba isshin (Captain), he saved Masaki, who was a high school student at the time. With the help of Urahara Kisuke, he was able to connect himself to Masaki by entering a “special prosthesis” and successfully suppressed Masaki’s hollowing out.

He was able to suppress Masaki’s hollowing, which was a good thing, but because the relationship between Masaki and the hollow was not severed, Isshin himself was unable to leave the prosthesis. Isshin himself was connected to the Hollow within his son Ichigo. By severing this connection, he was able to regain his Shinigami/Soul Reaper powers and return as a Shinigami/Soul Reaper.

|The strength of Kurosaki Isshin and Zanpakuto Bankai



Next, we will discuss the strength, Zanpakuto, and Bankai of Kurosaki Isshin in “BLEACH”. We have just learned above that he is a “Shinigami/Soul Reaper” and also that he was the Captain of 10th Division of Gotei 13. Let’s take a closer look at his strength, Zanpakuto, Bankai, etc.

Strengths of Kurosaki Isshin (1) Zanpakuto is “Engetsu

The first of Kurosaki Isshin’s strengths is the zanpakuto “Engetsu”. It is still the same shape as a regular Zanpakuto; it is just slightly different from Ichigo’s Zanpakuto. Since “Engetsu” never appeared in the anime, the color of the Zanpakuto seems to be unknown. By putting spiritual pressure on the Zanpakuto, it is able to cut through hollows.

The speed of movement is normal, but it is known to have a great deal of pressure. He is a Shinigami/Soul Reaper and fights in this world for the first time in 20 years, so he has the power to cut even a grand fisher over 10 meters in half without jumping. He was a lazy person, but he must have been very strong.

Strengths of Kurosaki Isshin (2) Shikai

The second strength of Kurosaki Isshin is its “Shikai of Zanpakuto”. As I mentioned earlier, Isshin’s Zanpakuto is “Engetsu,” and the handle of the sword has a cord attached to it, which is in the form of a Zanpakuto that is slightly wide; Kaigo is “burn. It is a type of zanpakuto that is also known as a “fiery” type.

To make Kurosaki Isshin’s Zanpakuto even stronger, “spray it with your own blood”. By doing this, the flames surrounding the sword itself become huge.

Strengths of Kurosaki Isshin (3) Bankai



The third strength of Kurosaki Isshin is his “Bankai”. In the book, Kurosaki Isshin’s “bankai” is not depicted. Therefore, Kurosaki Isshin was thought to be a character who could not “bankai”. However, towards the end of the book, when Kurosaki Isshin is fighting Aizen, it is revealed that Kurosaki Isshin can “bankai”.

In order for Kurosaki Isshin to be able to “bankai,” he must be in good health. Since he was seriously injured in the battle with Aizen, Kurosaki Isshin’s “bankai” was never performed. In the end, Kurosaki Isshin’s “Bankai” was never performed.

Strengths of Kurosaki Isshin (4) Technique

Lastly, the fourth of Kurosaki Isshin’s strengths is his Getsuga Tenshō, which, like Ichigo’s Getsuga Tenshō, is a sword-tip slashing technique similar to Ichigo’s Zanpakuto’s Zangetsu. It is not clear if he can use the same “Getsuga Tenshō” as Ichigo. This suggests that “Getsuga Tenshō” itself may not be a special technique.

Kurosaki Isshin can use “Agitowari” and “Oni Dekopin” in addition to “Getsuga Tenshō”. Agitowari” is the technique shown in the image above. It is known as the technique that cut down Alankar’s Grand Fisher in two, and seems to have been created by enlarging Zanpakuto to a gigantic size. Oni Dekopin” has a cute name, but it is a technique that can knock down several buildings with a single blow, and it is a very powerful technique!

|Kurosaki Isshin’s death theory



Did you all know that a theory of Kurosaki Isshin’s death has surfaced? He appeared and died after the battle at the end of the story…so there is a death theory. In this article, I will explain Kurosaki Isshin’s death theory! Let’s take a look.

Why were there whispers of an obituary?



Fighting Yhwach, Ishin and Ishida Ryugen (Uryu’s father) were seriously wounded. The fact that they did not appear in the manga at all after being seriously wounded led to the theory of their deaths. The main characters in the story are Ichigo and his men, so it seems that the battle scene was simply changed to Ichigo and Uryu; those killed in the fight against Yhwach were Genryūsai Shigekuni Yamamoto, the general commander, and Jūshirō Ukitake, the third commander.

Kurosaki Isshin was not deceased.



Kurosaki Isshin is severely wounded in the story but does not die. In the novel “Bleach,” he turns out to be a kind father, as depicted after Ichigo’s marriage to Orihime and helping Orihime embroider for Rukia.
