Ichigo transforms into a more powerful and savage semi-hollow form and battles Ulquiorra once again.Summary:Hearing orihime's cry for help, Ichigo transforms into a more advanced semi-hollow states where he now has two horns and a visible hollow hole where Ulquiorra blasted him. Ichigo retrieves his zanpukto and destroys a portion of the ground in a show of force. Orihime is tossed away by the impact but is safely retrieved by Ishida. Ulquiorra demands that the new Ichigo-hollow identify himself, but Ichigo only roars in response. Ulquiorra launches a black cero, but Ichigo counters with an equally powerful regular cero. After the cero impact, Ichigo gets behind Ulquiorra and slices off the arrancar's left arm. Nearby, Ishida and Orihime wonders if the savage being standing before them is still Ichigo.Ichigo: Ahhhh!!!! What happened to my beautiful hairstyle!!!? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~As most of us have guessed, Ichigo loses (some) control to his hollow side to get a power-up, and currently it looks like he is at least evenly matched with Ulquiorra. Just like Dragonball where there's several forms of Super Saiyans, looks there will be more and more levels of transformation for Ichigo as well. Not much else can be said at this point other than Ichigo looks different than the hollow-form he took while training with the Vizards, which probably means the hollow-side doesn't have complete control yet.
