Because she never saw ichigo as anything other than the man she owed everything to.

You guys believe anything you read huh.

Luis Perry

Hell, I'm sure 99% of the fanbase was expecting Ichigo x hand as the ending. I'm surprised Kubo literally went for the cliche "and everyone got married and had kids." So it really does just seem like a final fuck you to the fanbase

Man, I wouldn't mind seeing more of Ichikia and Kazui, brash reckless girl and moe boy gamis running around Karakura, getting into hijinks sounds amusing if only for a small bit. You just know Ichika drew on Kazui's face after that reveal.

Thomas Rodriguez

reminder that kubo hates the IR fanbase:

-ichigo doesn’t even know that rukia even achieved bankai. so much for their whole ~whitesun/blackmoon~ special bond.

-rukia runs straight to orihime. doesn’t even let them interact. she does nothing to help him out of his despair.

-recycles the rukia giving ichigo back his powers FB scene, but with fucking tsukishima. He took one of the most beloved IR scenes and did that to it.

-no tagteam.

-ichigo isn’t even at her captain ceremony. yhwach starts forming during that moment-a moment where ichigo is back in the human world happily married to orihime/raising kazui with her & rukia is back in ss, with renji by her side/a mother since ichika is already born.

-has them interact twice this entire final arc.

-uraharas last words were bait.

-last chapter is another nail on the coffin since they’re shown arguing over their parenting skills. ichigo/orihime are more protective(faeries follow kazui around, ichigo yelling at rukia to find her daughter) while rukia/renji are obviously more lax.

-names the last chapter “death and strawberry” which is the most popular IR ship name. A chapter where ichigo and rukia are living in different worlds, happily married to other people, and started a family with their respective spouses.

-then gives the “death and strawberry” title to the renruki/ichihime kids. who look so much like both their parents. ichika with renjis hair color, and kazui is all orihime in the face-especially the eyes.

-IRs convinced themselves that Japanese fans would be raging and burning their merch, but instead they were pretty comfy with it and all the complaining had to do with the missing characters.

-a whole article dedicated to Japanese fans mocking the western fanbase for their tantrum. calling them Ichiruk-ists.

-the words that ichigo told rukia when he rescued back in the ss arc, kubo recycles them. he says the exact same thing to kenpachi. ill post the raws if you guys want.

Lincoln Nelson

Literally what? The girl that's genuinely in love with the MC will get with him in the end, it's a like fighting shounen rule.

-happened with kenshin
-happened with naruto
-happened with db
-happened with bleach
-will happen with boku no hero since the main endgame pairing is so painfully obvious

If you want a real answer it can be really easily pared down to: "Humans and spirits aren't meant to coexist." I mean hey 99% of the problems in the series are one plane meddling with another one. Ichigo might be half man half bear and half pig but he still sees himself as human. It was either:

Be a human, what he basically always wanted, and be with Orihime. Protect human family and live normal life

or

Be a soul reaper (sort of since he isn't even dead yet) and live in Seireitei, give up family, learn new way of life to basically be a sword swinging pawn of the Gotei regardless of how important they may think he is.

Rukia leaving seireitei and being human was never an option, and is out of character for Rukia anyway.

Also because CHILD BEARING HIPS

You got me one that one, but the others are true.

-Kaoru was in love with Kenshin
-Hinata was in love with Naruto/Sakura with Sasuke
-Orihime was in love with Ichigo
-Ochako will fall in love with Deku and she will be the endgame girl, even if a rival appears in the future.

It's like a golden rule in shounen, just like how the MC has to be super dense when it comes to women.

Kubo just wants to tell you that Friends > Lovers.

Rukia is basically Ichigo's soulmate, the one he would do anything for, the one he would bring the stars down for, the one closest to him, while Orihime is the girl he fucks. And Renji is just the guy she fucks, but her soulmate is Ichigo. I'm sure Ichigo spends more time with Rukia anyway.

Plus Kubo was hoping he can make a sequel with the kids, and they can't hook up if they are siblings.

He wasn't at the ceremony, get over it. Orihime was in a better state since she was trying to fix his sword when Renji and Rukia arrived while Ichigo was straight-up facing the ground still shocked over what happened-he didn't even respond until Renji picked him up off the ground.

Juan Johnson

He wasn't at the ceremony
Baseless assumption. Where's the proof? There's no way he wouldn't be there.

-Ok so, where's the proof that he was at the ceremony?

-Rukia wasn't even shown thinking about Ichigo. She interacted with both Orihime and Renji during that scene and was forgotten the moment Tsukishima arrived. Tsukishima and Orihime help fix his sword and Renji was the one to accompany him to battle. Her presence was pointless.

Carter Gray

The end was rushed as shit. If there was any consolation prize from it all is it was so satisfying seeing the IchiRuki cunts being btfo once and for all. Kubo sticking to his guns, and stuck to his original end game. I love seeing delusional shippers get fucking put in there place.

God bless you Kubo. Look forward to your next project. Fuck the otaku cancer, and shipping fanatics.
