  1. Re: Isshin Kurosaki

    This theory is a decent one, but I believe we can eliminate the chance of a deal having been done. Following the above, either Isshin or his successor(s) was defeated by Kenpachi. According to the...

    [Theory] Re: Szayel Secret Room- Theories

    That is a good point. It would be a huge deal - though I believe the only good reason not to make mention is exactly what has occurred. Too much else going on at the time. As Ishida was a bystander...

    Not to contradict, but HAS Aizen actually said as much? If you have the cite for that, then it can end a lot of the speculation regarding the status of the top four Espada! After Grimmjow’s raid on...
