Post Reply Ichigo and Kaien

I always wondered why they look so alike.



Why did you think Kubo made them look alike?



I also want to state that I don't think Rukia likes Ichigo because he looks like Kaien. Throught out the manga, the only reference Rukia ever made of Ichigo to Kaien was the "fight for pride" thing and at chapter 117. She never thought "omg he looks just like Kaien-dono" when she first saw him. It was Captain Ukitake and Byakuya who thought Ichigo was Kaien.

~of course this totally my opinion so I may not be right about it


Discuss what you think.

yeah,they look a like..when i 1st saw kaien i said,"Oh,man why he look like ichigo??"*shoked* they just have different color..but i more like ichigo than kaien..^__^
i don't know why TITE KUBO made them same..
so wht is ur opinion??

at first I thought Ichigo was Kaien's reincarnation during the SS arc, till we saw Kaien again in the HM arc, so my theory was wrong.
I really have no idea why Kubo made them similar. All we know is that they both look and act very much the same esp towards Rukia.
Most people would say the reason they look alike is b/c Rukia can have another chance at love. but some IchiRuki haters say they dont like IchiRuki b/c that Ichigo is not Kaien. and as much as I hate to say this, I would have to agree.
I want Rukia to be with Ichigo b/c he's his own person. not just b/c he's like her first love.

i think Kubo made hem look alike because they are both related to Rukia's life ad how they changed her life as well. And they also have some attitudes alike, like actign high & mighty but they both have good hearts. Also, they both have been stabbed by Rukia by the chest.

that's what i thought.

thats true. but Kaein was more friendly and usually smiled alota while Ichigo is grumpy and always has a scowl on his face XD there are some theories saying that Isshin (ichigo's dad) can be related to Kaien's family which can explain their resemblance.

yea Kaien was more mature and teased Rukia alota lol but still nice to her. Ichigo is just a little bratty towards her, insulting her artwork and treats her rougher than other girls lol

They do look alike!! I never really noticed it.. I only ever really noticed the way they both protected her and how she would act differently whenever she was around Ichigo and Kaien!~ ...~_~...

i agree with all of you but while i was reading it a funny thing popped into my head

ichigo was actually suppose to have black hair and glasses, maybe kubo liked that and just put him in there or something.

ohh and also he seems to like his fans comparing things.its like his way of showing where everyone stands or something,

ohh and maybe they look alike becuase.............. (i had it in my head then lost it)
