Race: Human Height: 181 cm 511 Occupation: High School Student Substitute Shinigami Errand Boy of the Unagiya Shop Translator Zanpakuto: Zangetsu Release Command: None Bankai: Tensa Zangetsu Relatives: Isshin Kurosakihttps://anilist.co/character/2553/IsshinKurosaki father Masaki Kurosakihttps://anilist.co/character/22849/MasakiKurosaki mother deceased Yuzu Kurosakihttps://anilist.co/character/1096/YuzuKurosaki younger sister Karin Kurosakihttps://anilist.co/character/4018/KarinKurosaki younger sister When Ichigo first becomes a Shinigami his Zanpakut is a standardlooking katana but oversized with an equallyoversized brown sheathe hung by a strap over his right shoulder. It has a rectangular bronze hand guard with gently inwardcurved edges a stylized flame pattern on the long sides and a simple decorative slit on the short ones. The handle is red with two light blue tassels on the end of the handle. The large size is due to the unfocused but immense amount of Ichigos spiritual power which he didnt know how to control. As a result the sword itself was rather weak since very little spiritual power was used to create it. Nevertheless it was powerful enough to subdue a Gillianclass Menos and lesser Hollows completely blocking a Cero from the former. It was even able to upturn the ground with a single strike. Because of its weak spiritual energy nature Byakuya Kuchiki was able to easily cut off most of the blade during his first encounter with Ichigo and Kisuke Urahara subsequently slices it down to the hilt during their training forcing Ichigo to learn the name of his Zanpakut in order to release its true form. This sword is found to be a result of Rukias deprived spiritual energy and not a result of his own power.
