1. A possible pairing in the Bleach universe with Kurosaki Ichigo and Inoue Orihime. Often at odds with IchiRuki shippers, particularly due to a tiny number of fans on both sides attacking characters involved in the other ship. The small minority of such shippers on the IchiRuki side are at times so vocal about their dislike of IchiOri (and often Orihime herself) that they have given something of a bad reputation to the rest of the otherwise-sane IchiRuki fandom.
IchiOri is also known as IchiInou, or more commonly Ichihime. It is the only pairing with a love confession as of yet, although this was done while one character was invisible and the other was asleep. Fans will often cite that scene, known as the "Five Lifetimes" speech, among others as evidence in support of this pairing.
Support for this pairing has steadily grown alongside of Orihime's role since the end of the Soul Society Arc, as her crush developed into something far deeper.
Other than the "Five Lifetimes" speech, another particularly well-loved (among the IchiOri fandom, at least) scene took place during the fight against Grimmjow, where Orihime was shown triumphing over the mental scars left when her brother had Hollowfied, in order to beg Ichigo not to get hurt anymore. Her cheering him on, when previously she had been unable to meet his gaze while he wore the mask, gave him enough of a confidence boost to turn the tide of the fight.
Tanabata certainly brings a lot of IchiOri fans together, doesn't it?
That last chapter had an adorable IchiOri moment.
Did you read that IchiOri fanfiction?
1) A fanbased pairing in Bleach that's most likely established through sympathy towards Orihime's one sided love for Ichigo
(the main character).
2) A tool that serves as a detour to slow down the rapid progress of the ichiruki
does this in order to also emphasize ichigo's popularity as lead character.
3) DOESN'T EXIST.
IchiOri fan: orihime loves ichigo deeply, eversince episode 1. So its destined to happen
Ichiruki fan: She barely talks to him and yet claims love for him? COME ON.
One of the worst pairings in the entire show... Orihime doesn't truly love Ichigo as she claims. Rather than romantic moments happening between them, the absolute opposite happens. Not only that, they bring out the worse in each other. Most people who ship this pairing are young girls from 7-13 who don't know anything about love. They assume just because they both have red hair, they should be together...
IchiOri has no love. Orihime only likes him cuz of his looks. She knows nothing about him, just as he doesn't really care to know about her.
Orihime's supposed love for him only gets her depressed! She used to be the most cheerful girl in the whole manga, until the whole HM arc started. She caused IchiThing to appear, while her jealousy and "love" is slowly turning her into your typical shojo female. Unable to do anything and can only say one thing.
They don't have a real bond like Ichigo and Rukia. It's just some fake unrequited shit... This pairing doesn't even deserve the word love...
Orihime once compared herself to the rain... And the rain drags Ichigo down
Rain= bad to Ichigo; Orihime=Rain; thus... Orihime= bad to Ichigo
ICHIORI DOESN'T EXIST!
The Fan Coupling between Kurosaki Ichigo and Inoue Orihime in the popular manga Bleach by Kubo Tite. It's fanbase is slowly growing.
That was an IchiOri moment
