I didn't expect Ichigo to lose but I thought it was certainly possible. The way he lost wasn't really a loss or a victory, it just was what it was. I didn' think he'd fight Kenpachi just yet, that would have been too much for right now. The fight itself was great and I enjoyed your descriptions very much, nice work! XD
I loved the way that Rukia berated and attacked him, I knew she was going to after she asked if he was all healed, she'd not totally sadistic after all. Great how Ichigo realized that he should not mention that Byakuya sent him, he's more aware of her apprehension than he lets on and that's a great element to play with.
Again, a heartwarming scene between Ichigo and Rukia that make me wonder when they'll get around to admitting their feelings and what will happen far off into the future. There is so much potential here and I can't wait to see where you take it all! XD
Keep up the great work, I'm eager for more anytime! Good luck in school...we all need it!

Cute, but why did Byakuya want that to be his punishment though? I liked the fight scenes though, good job.

No question, you'll break 600 no time. -smirks-
Anywayz, niiiice job. I'm impressed with the fight scene (both Ikakku vs. Ichigo and Rukia beating up Ichigo).
Reading this story always makes my day.

Hmm to be honest I would of expected Ichigo to win since the Ichigo in canon beat him before he could even use Getsuga Tenshou but I guess I would of been more annoyed if Renji beat him.

New chapter was alright. Paced slowly in my opinion which is strange considering the fight. It was alright, I suppose.

My idea came from the fact that Zangetsu is ZanGETSU, and seeing as Getsu means moon, you can figure it out.
I like the fact that Ichigo finally lost. While yes it was narrow, it was mostly because of Ikkaku's hubris rather than Ichigo's ability. In Bleach the majority of Ichigo's strength was from necessity, there has been no need for Ichigo to be insanely strong, yet.

I loved how you described the fight! Especially the part where you said he can fight with both hands :D And yeah, it does make sense for Ikkaku to want to test out Ichigo first XD If you're saving Ichigo's and Kenpachi's fight for later, then... Ikkaku wins this one? I think it'll be good that way, since then Ichigo has someone to catch up to :D
The part when Rukia got her shikai wasn't important, but I'd like to see her train with her zanpakutou and get all her attacks :D
Update whenever you can!

Great story! I'm really loving it! One just doesn't find many stories like this that are good nowadays, but this one's great. Everything is flowing nicely and there's no rushing.

Their are common release commands for Zangetsu? Every story I've seen uses a different one. Although yours is definitely among my favorites. _

please continue :D
I'm looking forward for Ichigo's fight with Zaraki. Obviously Ichigo will defeat Ikkaku here. but, I don't know... Still, he get some serious fight here. It's like reading Bleach all over again XDD
Please continue and I demand our Ichiruki interactions! huahahahaha!
