Hey guys, first thread here on BA and I'm hopeful I am right and of course if you guys know of any contradiction please post them up.
Let first start off by stating - this is a long manga and there has been some inconsistency because I don't think author planned that way a head but we can assume he is not an idiot and he is a professional.
I think it safe to say Isshin has never used FGT or FGT does strip a user of all his powers. It's safe to say this because we all expected Isshin back story to show him using FGT (the reason he lost his powers) and the author I'm sure knew we expected that - but keep in mind the explanation for FGT never came from Isshin but from Fake Zangetsu (who's been liar up until now).
From this point this is wishful thinking, backed up by some previous dialog.
FGT from what we know about ICHIGO (forget Isshin)
Ichigo is a hybrid Quincy/Shinigami/Hollow/ - during his inner world conflict to obtain FGT we saw a merger of his
Shinigmia Powers (actually quincy) + Hollow Powers (actually Shinigami) - and the end results was a very similar Quincy final form ability which also results in lost of power - interesting.
I want this form back, this to me is still the pinnacle of Ichigo's power and man does it look freaking awesome. The quincy commander that Ichigo fought stated over the year they have perfect that transformation where it does not mean you lose your powers at the end of it.
What are your thoughts on this?
