Ukitake is assumed to be strong, right there on par with Kyouraku, but Kubo hasn't shown us anything that backs this suggestion up. So, actually I find it a bit odd to say one is stronger/weaker in this context.
    All too true. I guess making comparisons in strength in reference to Ukitake is a little premature. I just have this feeling that I'm going to be let down if and when he gets his battle or pair up with Shunsui and it's not what I had hoped for it to be.

    HOWEVER after all this talk I think we'll finally get to see Ukitake and Shunsui show off their pairing skills and see just why it is that they're the best duo in all of Soul Society. It can't just be because their zanpaktous are both duo blades.

    That's what I want to see, as well. They have been talked about as a good duo and if I'm not wrong, Captain-Commander said their skills were complementing each other, so, they should definitely have great teamplay going on.
    I wouldn't be sad if they had their individual battles, but a tag fight sounds better for sure.

    Tbh, if Shunsui ends up fighting Haschwald again I can see Ukitake swooping in to "off-set the balance" or level out the playing field. Or to just have the two of them square off against the right-hand of Ywach.

    i think the reason Ukitake could be ill is due to him and Shunsui training bankai together and possibly shunsui's ended up making Ukitake lose an internal organ or something

    He has tuberculosis, not an organ loss. But I see where you're going with it. That'd be a nice explanation as to how Ukitake fell sick. Unless Ukitake got tuberculosis naturally and not from training.

    Well him having TB is unconfirmed, i thought that was just speculation and i don't remember it being told that way. But if it is true meh how boring, plus having a missing organ would cause the same symptoms he has.

    True about both, it being speculation and providing the same symptoms. I can see so many fan fics happening if we find out that Shunsui is the one who hurt Ukitake. All the yaoi fans are gonna go cray cray.

    Bleach's anime is better than One Piece, imo. It's pretty even with Naruto for me though.

    I always play the Fake Karakura Town episodes, especially when the Vizards make their entrance because those scenes were some of the best well-written parts of the anime. Especially the episode where Hisgai fights the crab guy and completely slices him apart.

    Was that Findor? Not that it's important. It was a great fight, one of my all time favourites, especially the part in which Hisagi releases his Shikai by a lengthy intro talk.

    Yeah that's the one. I remember fanboying so hard when he released his shikai and just went ape shit on everything that Findor had. "Half my mask is gone so now I'm at VC level. 75% of my mask is gone so I'm at captain level now!" And then Hisagi laughs at him for thinking that's how strong a captain is and slices him apart. Bravo, Hisagi. Bravo.

    Crackpot theory, what if the first person ever to have his bankai stolen was aizen? Aizen suspiciously did not use his bankai against the gotei 13 and even against ichigo when he was having his ass handed to him. We have seen from shinigami that not having a bankai has pushed them to improve their basic abilities and to a great extent (even if not to the point where those abilities could replace bankai). Suifen mastered her shunko, hitsugaya developed a new fighting technique, komamura got his clan's secret.... Byakuya advanced his shikai to the point where it actually matches or even surpasses the power of his former bankai (although that probably has something to do with the reiatsu boost from his royal training too). So what if aizen had an encounter with juhabach and had his bankai stolen (by someone other than juhabach though)? That would force him to rely on his shikai and perhaps was a motivation to improve it to the point we saw it. Aizen could have used his shikai to fake a bankai and become a captain too.

    That would be insane if Aizen's bankai was stolen before all of this happened.
