Bleach characters, Ichigo has a son! Your reactions?


As requested by anon. :)


How are people going to react in the post-ending canon Bleach world when they realize that Ichigo has a son?


Grimmjow: A tiny Kurosaki?

Grimmjow: …

Grimmjow: Awesome! I have a backup! Now I can kill Kurosaki Ichigo for real!

Grimmjow: AND THEN I KILL HIS SON

Ichigo: On second thought, you’re not invited to the baby shower after all.

Grimmjow: Dude, why?

Renji: I’m super happy for Ichigo! Being a dad rocks!

Renji: But also -

Renji: I had a shikai. Ichigo got a shikai. I got bankai. Ichigo got bankai. I fought Captain Kuchiki. He fought Captain Kuchiki. I got sideburns. He got sideburns. 

Renji: Then I had a kid and he had a kid.

Renji: I kinda think Ichigo keeps copying me?

Ichigo: THAT IS NOT WHY I HAD A SON

Yoruichi: Wow, a son!

Yoruichi: That means that Ichigo has probably seen a second pair of boobs finally!

Ichigo: Probably?

Yoruichi: I give it 50-50 odds.

Ichigo: I HAVE A WIFE YOU KNOW

Kenpachi: So Kurosaki Ichigo has another power, huh?

Ichigo: A son. Not another power.

Kenpachi: Tch. Right.

Kenpachi: Like tiny children are ever anything in Bleach OTHER than secretly a weapon.

Ichigo: …

Ichigo: I mean, you have a point, but no.

Kenpachi: Yeah, we’ll see.

Kenpachi: We’ll see. 

Ulquiorra: A child of the woman and Kurosaki Ichigo will be doubly loyal. Will doubly believe in friendship. Will possess double strength. Double kindness. Double love.

Ulquiorra: That child basically IS the heart.

Orihime: That’s so sweet!

Ulquiorra: I meant it as an insult.

Hiyori: WELL I’M NOT BABYSITTING

Hiyori: AND I’D LIKE SOMEONE TO PLEASE TELL THE KID THAT

Nel: Nel is very excited for Itsygo!

Nel: Itsygo was always so good with Nel!

Nel: Itsygo’s child will love being carried into battle with him like Nel was!

Ichigo: I probably won’t carry my kid into battle, Nel.

Nel: So Itsygo loves Nel more??

Nel: NEL IS SO HAPPY

Ichigo: …I might let this one go.

Aizen: Now the human-shinigami-Quincy-hollow has had a child with Inoue Orihime, whose powers are godlike and undefined.

Aizen: My plan proceeds.

Ichigo: Plan? I heard you were back in prison accepting your lot and making speeches.

Aizen: Yeah because that sounds like me.

Aizen: No way I’d care about a kid who can kill Yhwach with a touch.

Aizen: Nope I am so not interested in that.

Ichigo: …

Ichigo: I have concerns.

Isshin: Well I’m ecstatic of course!

Isshin: So ecstatic I turned the clinic over to Ichigo, and took off to travel the world with Ryuken and never return again!

Ryuken: Do not speak lies. The fans might believe you.

Isshin: Is that any way to talk to your travel and snuggle buddy?

Ryuken: I SAID STOP LYING

Byakuya: I would like to say congratulations on your child, Kurosaki Ichigo.

Ichigo: Finally! Someone who just says something nice and doesn’t - 

Byakuya: He is nearly - but not quite - as adorable as my niece.

Ichigo: …

Byakuya: Nice try, though.

How Isshin would react (if various Bleach characters proposed to Ichigo)


As requested by anon. :)


If Ichigo ended up engaged after the following characters proposed to him, how would his dad Isshin react?


1. Orihime

“What?? A beautiful woman like that? Who is totally out of your league? How could that have possibly happened???”

Ichigo: Thanks for your support, Dad.

Isshin: My mind is blown!


2. Rukia

“MASAKI! MASAKI! WE HAVE ANOTHER DAUGHTER FOR REAL!!!”

Isshin: You guys are going to live here after you’re married, right?

Ichigo: Um….no.

Isshin: Aw, come on!


3. Ishida

“Marrying a Quincy, huh? Just like your old man!”

Ichigo: Suddenly I am no longer sure I want to marry him.

Isshin: Ha! Like we Shiba men could ever resist a Quincy!

Ichigo: Dad…

Isshin: I bet he’ll wear white to the wedding, just like Masaki!

Ichigo: DAD STOP IT


4. Chad

“The strong silent type, huh, son? …So much for children marrying somebody like their dad.”

Ichigo: We like to communicate in other ways.

Isshin: …

Ichigo: I-I meant like nodding and stuff!


5. Grimmjow

“This would be the same Grimmjow who kept trying to kill you?”

Ichigo: Yeh.

Isshin: You are so Squad 11.


6. Yoruichi

“HOW THE HELL DOES MY DORKY SON GET A WOMAN LIKE YORUICHI TO MARRY HIM?!?”

Ichigo: Um, she asked?

Isshin: And she’s seen your hair?


7. Hitsugaya

“………awkward.”

Isshin: Uh, does Hitsugaya know that he’s marrying his old captain’s son?

Ichigo: It hasn’t come up.

Isshin: …our tendency to not say things might come back to bite you in this case, son.


8. Keigo

“Keigo proposed to you? Man! His desperation to be with you really has gotten out of bounds, huh?”

Ichigo: I said yes.

Isshin: …

Isshin: I mean I’m super happy for you both!


9. Renji

“I-I can’t believe my own soul is marrying a dude who is COVERED in tattoos!!!”

Ichigo: Uh….since when do you have a problem with tattoos, Dad?

Isshin: H-he’s gonna be cooler than me!

Ichigo: Anybody would be.

Isshin: S-so mean!


10. Byakuya

“Wow. The head of the Kuchiki clan, marrying somebody from a fallen clan? Never thought I’d see the day!”

Ichigo: He married a peasant before. He says he’s moving up.

Ichigo: Very, very, very slightly up.

Issin: He said that to you? During the proposal?

Ichigo: I’m like 90% sure he was joking.


11. Kenpachi

“This wedding is going to be violent, isn’t it?”

Ichigo: Kenpachi says if we both survive then we’ll get married!

Isshin: …and you’re marrying him why?


12. Hichigo

“You’re marrying your own soul? Who looks identical to you? Son, I think we need to have a talk.”

Ichigo: Eh. Why change the nature of our relationship now, Dad?

Isshin: BECAUSE YOU’RE TRYING TO MARRY YOUR OWN SOUL

What if Matsumoto raised the Kurosaki kids?


As requested by anon. :)


We’ve already imagined what Bleach would be like if the Kurosaki kids were raised by Ryuken or Lisa or Kukaku or Aizen or Kyoraku or even all of the visored together. But what if it were Matsumoto who raised Ichigo, Karin, and Yuzu? What would Bleach be like then?


1. In this universe, it is Matsumoto rather than Isshin who sneaks off to the human world

Sure, there are other ways we could imagine Matsumoto getting custody of the Kurosaki kids, but why choose something other than the lesbian love story version? So in this universe, it is Matsumoto rather than Isshin who goes to the human world and has a love-at-first-sight meeting with Masaki. Later Matsumoto will give up her powers to save Masaki, and then the two of them will get together. Then Masaki will have their children. Not quite sure how that works, but I’m guessing Aizen is involved.

Aizen: This is perfect.

Aizen: Not only will I see what happens when a Quincy bitten by a super hollow has a kid, but I’ll also get to test my two lesbians having children without a man device!

Gin: ..and why did you make that latter one, again?

Aizen: This mind never stops, Gin.


2. Matsumoto will try to help her children’s grief via silliness.

After Masaki dies, the kids are obviously traumatized, as in canon. And kinda like Isshin, Matsumoto will try to make them feel better by being as silly as possible. Only Matsumoto is less about weird incest jokes and/or attacking children (*cough* Isshin *cough*) and more about ice cream and tickling.

Ichigo: How come my sisters always seem to get the ice cream, and I always seem to get the random tickle attacks?

Matsumoto: Maybe I’m trying to make you stronger, Ichigo.

Matsumoto: Or MAYBE you make the CUTEST faces when you get ticked! Like THIS!

Ichigo: (shrieking with laughter): NOOOOOOO


3. Matsumoto would LOVE back to school shopping.

This is less a plot point, and more just an undeniable fact.

Ichigo: Mom? This shirt is too small. Can you get me the size larger?

Matsumoto: Sure! Here!

Ichigo: I SAID THE SIZE LARGER, NOT THIRTY OTHER SHIRTS

Matsumoto: You’ll thank me later!

Yuzu: Back-to-school shopping is so fun!

Karin: Yeah, for real.


4. Yuzu would still do all the housework.

Sadly, this would not change much from canon. Matsumoto likes to leave work for others, much like Isshin. So Yuzu would still find herself doing all of the housework.

Karin: Ever since Mama died, Yuzu started taking care of the whole house for us.

Karin: Mostly because Mom really really loves to nap.

Karin: …it’s a mostly functional household.


5. The kids would know about soul reapers

Isshin decided not to tell his kids the truth about his past, for reasons that remain kinda unclear to me. And it is true that Matsumoto also knows how to keep secrets. But on the other hand, Matsumoto knows how it feels when someone you love refuses to be open with you (*cough* Gin *cough*). And when she saw child Hitsugaya suffering because of his shinigami powers, she told him the truth about it. So I think Matsumoto would be open with her kids as well.

Ichigo: Wow. So that’s why I can see ghosts?

Matsumoto: Yeah. That’s why.

Ichigo: Man, I can’t even imagine having to grow up without understanding that!

Matsumoto: It would be pretty rough!


5. Matsumoto and Rukia would bond

When Rukia showed up, she wouldn’t have to hide her identity as a soul reaper. Instead, she and Matsumoto could talk about everything.

Matsumoto: Listen, it’s okay to feel bad about your brother. It’s okay to feel guilty.

Matsumoto: But you’re doing good, you know? You feel like you can never live up to his expectations, but you’re still trying. You care about your duties and you care about your friends.

Matsumoto: It’s okay to feel bad sometimes.

Rukia: T-thank you.

Rukia: Ichigo is lucky to have you as his mom.

Matsumoto: I keep telling him that!


6. Ichigo’s interactions with Gin would have an extra layer.

Because Gin would know, remember, that Matsumoto is Ichigo’s mom.

Gin: I’m afraid I can’t let you get past, ryoka.

Gin: Also, how is your mom doing? Will you tell her hi from me if you don’t die?

Ichigo: What?

Gin: I’m just teasing you!

Gin: But seriously tell her hi from me.


7. In Soul Society, Isshin and Hitsugaya would be together in Squad 10.

Since in this universe Isshin never left Soul Society, Isshin would still be the captain of Squad 10, and Hitsugaya would be his lieutenant. They’d still investigate Aizen’s “death,” of course. And Hitsugaya would still have his bankai.

Hitsugaya: I don’t trust Ichimaru Gin.

Hitsugaya: I think we should investigate him, Captain.

Isshin: You’re so cute when you’re an overachiever, Toshiro!


8. Ichigo would have dust-based powers.

In canon, Ichigo’s powers turned out to be kinda the same as his dad’s. So in this reality, Ichigo’s zanpakuto powers would be loosely based on Matsumoto’s. And that means killer dust.

Ichigo: So you have killer flower petals, huh?

Ichigo: That’s interesting. My power is kinda similar.

Byakuya: What

Ichigo: Actually, really similar! We’re like power twins!

Byakuya: OKAY NOW YOU ARE TRYING TO MAKE ME MAD


9. When the advance squad came to Karakura Town, Hitsugaya and Matsumoto would reunite.

I choose to believe that even in this universe, Hitsugaya and his advance squad would still come to Karakura Town after the first Soul Society arc. In canon, Hitsugaya somehow managed to never run into his old captain Issin. But if Matsumoto were there instead, I’m sure she’d make sure to catch up with her old subordinate.

Matsumoto: Toshiro!! Look at you!! Just as adorable as I remember!!

Hitsugaya: PUT ME DOWN I’M A LIEUTENANT NOW


10. Matsumoto would face off with Gin in fake Karakura Town. 

Like Isshin, Matsumoto would end up getting her powers back and would go to fake Karakura Town near the end of the battle. Only instead of getting knocked out by fighting against Aizen, I think Matsumoto would choose to confront Gin.

Matsumoto: I can’t BELIEVE you told my son that he should just go home because he can’t beat Aizen, Gin!

Matsumoto: Look at him! He’s got anxiety now!

Gin: Anxiety? Why, I was just giving him a nice motivational speech!

Matsumoto: YEAH WELL YOUR MOTIVATIONAL SPEECHES BREAK PEOPLE EMOTIONALLY

Gin: …

Gin: So is that not how they’re supposed to go?
