So I took advantage of my sick days this week to do homework catch up on Bleach (anime) [also: Fade to Black is awesome. Seriously awesome.] and found myself wondering how the souls age. Has KT ever mentioned that in or out of cannon?

Because looking at the Pendulum arc, Hiyori looks much the same age as she does now (at least to me). However, Hitsugaya, who wasn't around back then, is shown in flashback, right before joining the Academy, to look younger than he does as a captain - bigger eyes, slighter frame, etc. So I thought that maybe Hiyori's hollowification slowed her aging, since - I think it was Lilynette that said arrancar don't age.

This got really long and kinda rambly. Cut for the sake of f-lists. )

So, tl;dr version because I have class in like six hours and forgot my nicely-worded conclusion? Shinigami age reaaaally slowly unless they're stressed out/have a lot to deal with, in which case they sprout like weeds.

And, of course, come Tuesday's spoilers (or the next manga flasback), I'll probably be jossed and find out KT's actually using a complicated equation for aging that includes hair color, gender, and fashion sense on a scale of 1-10, but - phht.

Also, I don't read as much meta as I'd like to, so I'm sure someone's written some version or other of this post already, somewhere. Please be assured that any similarities are accidental.

Edit: Oh, yes, I totally left out Isshin and Ichigo. Mostly because the gigai?/human/shinigami thing confuses me, so I'm guessing that, once in the real world in gigai or whatever Isshin is, you age in real time. Or something.

Edit 2: Please pardon all the grammar mistakes. Sorry. It's 2:30 in the morning over here, but I'll try to fix some of them later.

Edit 3: I wrote this on the fly and only checked two or three of my facts, so pardon any mistakes.
