HAPPY BIRTHDAY ICHIGO KUROSAKI! To celebrate, I have a little surprise for you guys. Ichigo is from the anime Bleach. Although there are quite a few female (and male) characters, we still haven’t gotten an answer as to who Ichigo will end up with. There are mainly two sides the this shipping war: Ichigo x Rukia and Ichigo x Orihime. Personally, I more of a Rukia fan. But that’s just my opinion. For this post, I gathered the best defenses for each side and have decided to let you guys choose. Who really is the best person for Ichigo? Time to find out.
Team Rukia Says…
Rukia is, without a doubt, the chosen one.
They are pure chemistry, they share deep thoughts towards the other, they can understand each other without words, they trust one another blindly, they even changed the other’s world…
You think Orihime can make Ichigo happy or that she made the great deal by “bringing him back to life”? Let me get this clear for you. When she baby-cried dead Ichigo (besides showing her lack of determination and courage) she messed it up for him. It clearly shows how selfish and careless she is, specially with “the person she loves the most” as most of you say. She turned Ichigo into a monster, something he really disliked and made him hate himself for having hurt Uryu and dishonoured Ulquiorra (he was in shock when he returned and saw what “he” had done). Instead of being useful, Orihime only disturbed Ichigo. This I’ve said is not made with the purpose of bashing Orihime, but to show who is the rain in this story. Also remember that Tensa Zangetsu told Ichigo in his inner world (when he was training to get Final Getsuga Tenshou and beat Aizen) that even though the rain had stopped pouring (Ichigo himself said that it was because of Rukia!!♥), now his world was flooded because he left his inner hollow go out (that because of Orihime).
As of Rukia, Ichigo himself have said that she changed his world, that she made the rain stop for him and he asked himself if he could keep with the speed of the world without her…all those thoughts are clear proof that he needs her, he may not be obvious neither romantic, but when she’s not there he really misses her. Kubo has highlighted that point, he has shown the change in Ichigo’s mood before and after Rukia’s return, he makes Ichigo puts epic dummy faces when he sees her (not I say, but Ikkaku…see it?). If it weren’t important, then there was no need to put that dialogue between Ichigo and Keigo in Fullbring, that’s what we Ichiruki fans call unnecessary unless it’s ichiruki…see that’s a way to highlight this development.
Rukia always cheers Ichigo up. She is the only one able to make the sun shine after the most devious storm.
Team Orihime Says…
I believe it is Orihime. I mean the love is there. And I can also see this similar to Naruto and Hinata. Remember, up to the point Hinata confesses, Hinata’s love was one sided. But once she confessed, it all began falling into place. Whose to say it won’t happen with Ichigo and Orihime? I mean look at it this way, ever since the Soul Society arc, Rukia hardly been in the World of the Living spending time with Ichigo. In fact, each time she comes, she comes with Renji meaning there is something between them in some way. Orihime is there for Ichigo. Yes, people will say she can’t go to the SS like Rukia can. If Orihime had the choice, she would stay by Ichigo’s side regardless. And like someone said, all Orihime have to do is confess when Ichigo is awake. I have nothing against IchiRuki, its just I see IchiHime more. In Ichigo’s fight against Grimmjow, the second Orihime spoke up (after Nel told her why Ichigo is doing what he is doing) the fight tipped into Ichigo’s favor. And when Ichigo heard her voice, he went full hollow and utterly destroyed Ulquiorra. And the fact that Orihime can find Ichigo no matter where he may be is also amazing. Ichigo went against the Head Captains orders also to just go save Orihime. heck, he even notice the small trace of Spiritual Energy left by Orihime that probably would’ve went unnoticed by others.
Team Neither Says…
So yeah, each team poses pretty good points. What do you guys think?
