now is it just me or do the current espada represent in some part the other captains from the gotei 13?
i mean some really do resemble the remaining captains excluding of course Aizen, Gin and Tousen.
Yammy seems to be like komamura, big and strong physically
Noitora = Zaraki, eye patch and likes to fight as well as has no interest in fighting weaklings
Arroniro Aluluerie = ukitake, i mean kaien, must be like ukitake in some way at least partially
Ulquiorra = hitsugaya? both strict and both get annoyed easily
Zaerua-poro = kurotsuchi , they both experiment on others, so it seems
Grimmjow = byakuya, how you may ask? they both cause problems, byakuya went against the kuchiki family rules twice, grimmjow is just the troublemaker of the espada
guy sitting next to Ulquiorra = kyouraku?
girl espada sitting next to noitora = soi-fong, both their swords are on their backs hanging
old man espada next to yammy = Yamamoto genryuusai, 1st squad
guy with spikes on his head next to grimmjow = unohana? who knows, maybe he can heal...looks calm all the time
so this is my opinion, if ya got any i'm all ears
I have totally called this in two threads before this. Perhaps it is Aizen's way of expressing his dominance over the Soul Society, by creating his own Gotei 13. A Gotei 13 under his complete and utter control, that fears and serves his very existence.Originally Posted by Kyuubi685
That's definetly Aizen alright. Why not create your own Gotei 13 with stricter rules. Either follow Aizen or die. Not many options a Hollow could take when he becomes a Arrancar.
I actually think that Ulquiorra bares a much greater resemblance to Byakuya than to Hitsugaiya
other than that maybe your comparison for Noitora stands, but all the others have either virtually nothing to back up any comparison or entirely different personallities than the people you compared them to.
this is just my opinion
the masked guy unmasked looks like ichigo..that's obvious .
Ulq is Byakuya
Grimjaw is Zaraki
Bored guy is Shunsui
Noitora is kind of like Gin now that I think about it.
There is definitely a resemblance but ti me
Old espada = Yamamato Taicho (they are both old and have scars on their faces
Aaro = Komamura (they both wear masks and their faces ain't what you expect)
Halibel = Soi Fong
Zaer = Mayuri (both are science freaks)
Ulquiorra = Byakuya (both have the same better-than-you attitude and care about rules)
Noitora = Zaraki (power seeking freaks)
Stark = Shunsui (sleepy and seem to be easy going)
I don't see Yammi, GJ and the black espada resembling any of the captains but may be some vice captains like Yammi = Ohmaeda Marechiyo (big and dumb), GJ = Renji ( hot heads) but we have seen nothing about the black espada so I don't know about him
Here is a crazy thought, the hogyouku combines shinigami and hollow powers right? where did Aizen get the shinigami power part from? may be form Goti 13 members!! like he can have samples of their rieatsus and merge them with his hollows to engineer the current espadas. Didn't Zaer sent a death squad to collect samples from the dead ex-espadas? may be those samples will be used for future arrancar production. oh man if my assumption turns out to be right then we are in for espada engineered after Ichigo's reiatsu.
Noitora - Zaraki > a good one - they really behave in a similiar fashion
Grim - Renji > they're like brothers.. really
Stark = Shunsui > nothing more to say :P
Ulq - Byakuya > strictness and coolness 2-in-1
Zaer - Mayuri > scientists stuff
Komamura - Yammi > yeh yeh size does matter... really?
actually all resemblances in character are a little twisted in favour of the espada - meaning that the espada are evil by default so they should be twisted evil-doers ^^
but I believe those similarities to be just random
The striking resemblance is what made me make my assumption and collecting Ichigo and co's reiatsus to come up with counter measures isn't really this useful since espadas don't intend to let them leave alive anyway.
But again it was just a thought in the lights of the info we have so far
Noitora does seem to be the same as Zaraki.
But what if the wall wasn't just the limit of having to choose between shinigami or hollow powers? The Hogyouku was sealed right after it was made and yet we still have vizards who broke the "wall" using forbidden techniques so the Hugyouku must be able to do more than that. You see, even a strong vizard still has a wall and that is he reached his max power. What if the Hogyouku can add to one's reiatsu or increase it by influence from other reiatsus? This is what made think of the possibility that Aizen used captains' reiatsus to increase his current espadas' reiatsus and it resulted in the striking resemblance that we see.
Grimmjow is definately more Zaraki-like than Noitora. They both have no common sense/sanity, but love to fight. A bit too hot headed on Grimmjow's part. Tousen holds them in the same light.
As for Noitora... He's sly and vulgar, and wants to prove himself as the best. Zaraki doesn't want anything like that, he just wants to enjoy a good fight.
This is why I think that Vizards dont have complete access to the full extent of their Hollow powers, or at least in the sense of the powers they gain when they put on a hollow mask . The hougyouku is supposed to be perfect in its mixing of Hollow and shinigami's. Just like Hollows that broke their masks and gained shinigami powers through that werent anything compared to the hougyoku's arrancar, so will probably the vizard be nothing compared what the Hougyouku makes out of Gin, Tousen, and Aizen.
