They even got their won movie, "Bleach: Fade to Black, I Call Your Name." Tite Kubo even said, and I quote, "It's based on the change in their feelings towards each other."
IchiHime shippers say that, "Well, Rukia's dead and that would be just gross." Um...Ichigo's dad was a Shinigami and his mother was a human...and guess what? They got married and had 3 wonderful children.
They also say, " Inoue has bigger boobs and is more womanly." Just because someone has a nice body doesn't mean that they will get all the guys. Ichigo never seems fazed by Inoue's good looks.
And has Ichigo ever said to Inoue that she changed his world? Nope. He said it to Rukia, though.
