I bet no one ever thought about it.. but it could be possible ..
Since we barely see Ichigo in real life.. and it's boring for him. His a part of something else.
Naruto is about him becoming a Hokage
One Piece is about Luffy becoming a Pirat Kind
could it be that Bleach is about Ichigo becoming a Captain Commander ? :shrug: or what is it about ? what's the goal...
Just a thought... I wouldn't be very excited about that
