Hey all. Just posting to jump start this comm again since it seems fairly dead because the love that Orihime and Tatsuki share has really been downplayed in the manga and anime recently. Which is utterly sad. A while back I was thinking about the rules of Soul Society and how shinigami and the people that live there get born again in the human world once they die and how it was said that Kaien might have come back as Ichigo. While I think this is a plausible idea I was struck by the similiarity of physical resemblance that Tatsuki has to Kuukaku. The discussion that I'm proposing is this. What happens if Tatsuki is actually Kaien born again and Orihime is Miyako-san? It was also brought up to me by kiyuu that she saw a picture of Tatsuki in a shinigami uniform with a sword and a dog like animal in scans from a manga information book called Souls. She hasn't been able to find this picture again but she does assure me that it is there.
