I think if unohana shows her skills she will be one of those silent killers whose strength relies on kido after kido. While she has her zan ready in case she needs it. That is just how I see it.
As for her shikai, I think the manta ray is shikai not bankai. I say her shikai is not really a manta ray but a healing mist that she can turn into anything
and wasn't Zaraki the only person to become captain by the method of killing the previous captain?
also, when Ichigo first faught Ikkaku and said who trained him (Urahara Kisuke) Ikkaku knew who that was and it even showed a picture of Urahara in his captain garb, as in Ikkaku remembering him. he was all shocked and in awe. (one of our early hints at Urahara's awesomeness)
Ikkaku joined the gotei 13 after Zaraki was captain of squad 11, did he not? he and Yumi showed up all smiles. (Ikkaku had fought and lost to Zaraki outside of the gotei 13)
so if Ikkaku was around to know of Urahara back in the day, as well as the previously mentioned method of how the new Kenpachi actually became Kenpachi...
Zaraki = the kenpachi of the pendulum arc that we heard about and never saw.

i was under the impression that the tradition was just that all squad 11 captains are called Kenpachi and Kenpachi is the title for the one who loves battle the most.
although i do remember that Tousen was a captain at the time of Zaraki's victory.
conflicting plot points, it seems. the Ikkaku thing i mentioned and Tousen being a captain, i mean.
Reference to the tradition:
And reference to the fact the previous one died:
These couple panels, added to the fact tousen became a captain at the time zaraki rolled in would seem to indicate that either:
a) zaraki wasn't the first one to kill a captain for his position
b) plothole/bad translation
By the way in my last comment I wasn't saying Unohana isn't terribly strong; I'm just saying sometimes you or your inner hollow has to handle his business.
I'm sure the bitch be off the hook.
Ukitake and Shunsui call her "SENPAI" and state her terror!!!!!
i think ichigo potential is limitless like saiyan , he just need more experience and learn how to use his power to the fullest.after he fight with grimm his shinigami power got mature and when he use his vizard mode his power increase like we all see...aargghh... he need to learn cero that can be use after launch a getsuga...
On the Kenpachi issue, its seems the captain of the eleventh squad is given that title. I think the eleventh squad has (always?) generally been known as the strongest.
I belive it was stated that "Kenpachi" was the title given to the strongest Soul Reaper.
The current Kenpachi was from the Zaraki district eighty. He killed the previous captain of squad eleven, took the captainship and the title known as kenpachi, as-well as having it for his name.
What we don't know is the exact time frame of when the current Kenpachi became the captain of squad eleven.
Prediction for the next chapter...
Ichigo will be shown to be able to hold his own against the released Ulquiorra. He will be pushed to his limit and then summon his horse/Ogichi out to battle. Ulquiorra tosses off his dress leaving the top bare showing how evil / human his release really looks like.
What does Kenpachi mean?
I believe, with these kanji, Kenpachi means "fast sword", or something like. Gruesomely, it also seems to be a homophone for "snapping tendon".
Yeah i would also wanna see Ogichi/Shirosaki next session but im afraid we will either see Rukia or some crap fight that doesnt matter, but ill keep my thumbs up for Ichigo to get his ass handed to him

As for the part I bolded.....you really can't imagine Ichigo being caught off guard? Really?
