Kido is obviously very powerful. It has served to stall or incapacitate some of the most powerful beings in bleach. I think it's even. Only Final Getsuga Tenshou and Zanka no Itachi (IMO) have shown power levels that are probably capable of easily overcoming Nanao's Kido and Urahara's trap Kido. I really want to see Shunsui's and Ukitake's Bankai. I have a feeling that they're extremely powerful whether in raw power or varying capability.
I think, Kubo will pull an explanation for most of the characters we haven't seen in quite some time, like he did with the VC captain from the 1st division, during the Arrancar arc.
There could be something special being saved for Yoruichi and Tessai, later on as this final war progresses. I believe, it was Grimmjow, who killed Kirge and made it capable or at least aided Ichigo in getting freed from his jail.
Urahara, I'm waiting to see what his next plan is to aid SS in his war and his Bankai debut. As well as Shunsui and Ukitake. There is also, the Fullbringers, who will most likely appear with Kukaku and Ganju to fight. Who or what is beyond me and I think, Isshin will not be too pleased with the idea of Ichigo going to the Royal Palace. More than likely, Ichigo now has no choice in living a normal life now and must join SS, officially after this war. And Ichigo being a hybrid spirit will change the rules forever.
Ywhach's past is the most interesting part of his final arc and I do hope, Kubo gives us at least a volume's worth of chapters to explain his overall agenda and grudge he had with Yamamoto. Maybe another "Turn Back the Pendulum" treatment is in the works for this. And finally, there's Aizen and the Soul King. It's anything possible at this point.
Grimmjow=He'll most likely appear when Urahara appears, it's possible they were still cleaning up the stern ritter mess in HM and attempting to regain control of HM
Harribel=Her only purpose was to throw the arrancars/hollows and such into confusion by kidnapping the leader, with her missing of course you'll have those confused, those attempting to fight back to reclaim her and during that confusion they could easily take advantage of the arrancars/hollows and such mentality
Nel=Could be working with Urahara on a way to regain her full body full time, still looking for missing friend.
Aizen=May still be locked away, could of tricked Bach in more ways than one by enticing him to attack and somehow release him from his chains. Think from Bach's words it may suggest that Aizen still has control over his shikai or he developed a new means to use his ability
Ukitake=Might be curing his ailment, for whatever reason he's had it for as long as he has could be why Shunsui is where he is, he's only acting as if he's protecting himself but in reality he may be hiding Ukitake to allow him the opportunity to get rid of his disease
Shunsui=Possibly protecting Ukitake and making it look like he's only protecting himself and Nanao
Soul King=Seems to have ulterior motives towards Ichigo, may have ordered the Royal Guards not to assist in the fight and plans to wreck both sides in an attempt to gain Ichigo for his own needs
Who freed Ichigo? He freed himself because of his latent Quincy abilities which Bach did point out as to why he shoudln't of had a full breed Olpie fight him because it allowed ichigo to tap into his quincy side
Isshin=It's possible and it's possible he may even use it against Bach to counter Yamamoto's stolen bankai. I feel like it's been hinted heavily that fire can counter fire, Bazz B countering Yamamoto's shikai to offset the damage and now potentially Momo may counter Bazz B's 3 fingers with her Tobiume, because I believe she had wanted to offset Bambi's "bombs" thinking they were fire based but Komamura knew that they weren't fire based which is why he stopped her from attempting to engage Bambi.
Visored on Earth=possible they re playing clean up duty with the hollows and any other dimensional errors that are occurring atm, last seen they were cleaning up the holes with paint like objects so they may just be protecting the integrity of earth while the shinigami and stern ritter kill one another
Fullbringers=Ginjou's story was never over there is more to what happened to him and if anything I imagien Ganju could relate better than Ichigo, Ganju's family lost his pride I believe because of the death of his brother and in the same way Ginjo was frowned upon because of the fear of him getting stronger, the only thing that made him and Ichigo different was circumstance and that circumstance was the fact that Ichigo just happened to be around at a time when crap hit the fan and the shinigami needed someone like Ichigo on their side. I mean think about it Ichigo invaded soul society I doubt Ginjou ever invaded Soul society or did anything as heinous and yet the shinigami were still ordered to kill him, that doesn't sound very fair and honestly because of that the fullbringers still have some identity left to the story because it shows that the shinigami not only looked down and tried to shut down the quincy, they also attempted to shut down any possible chance that their way of life may be effected by those who would overpower them and even more strongly to the point that they made the Maggot's Nest to jail people who they feared even the slightest but of potential that they would be a threat to soul society.
Juha Bach=He wants eternal life and he'll do it by any means, and his current means seems to be by creating a neverending war in which his body will always be given the rejuvenating energy he desires.
What happened between Bach and Yamamoto= I'd say quite simply they were both the leaders during the whole war/massacre in which Yamamot's group wanted to do away with the Quincy. Yamamoto didn't approve of the way Bach was destroying the balance and the war started however when Bach and his men were defeated so was his power and Yamamoto took pity on a man who was now only human with no means to fight back and honestly maybe it's not so much Yamamoto let him live. But he tortured him with the idea of staying alive with the inability to fight Bach and living with the fact that his comrades were now all dead which honestly is a lot worse than death it's like he wanted him to live with that guilt so that he would kill himself and not because he did it out of mercy for Bach.
OH OH I wanna go
I'm only going to do one since, i lack writing skills.
Aizen: Now i chose Aizen due to me thinking Juhabuk really isn't going to leave him chained underneath SS. Plus Aizen would have had a huge amount of thought going into his escape including where he would go to hide, i mean by all logic no one is really going to be thinking about the Human World.
Except possible usual suspects including Isshin who can now really go on a war path and try to find Aizen to put an end to him.
Sorry back to Aizen if he has under gone an unnatural merging with ones Zan would he theoretically have unnatural abilities. We're currently seeing the effects of R.G.T to the trio plus Ichigo, the natural more 'pure' as it were way of transcending your typical shinigami abilities beyond heights (possibly at a ratio between time and usage). Now Ichigo is currently in a shift that is his true shinigami/hollow powers which is dipping into an unknown territory but he's fortunate enough to have be born with it........Sorrry! Aizen.
Aizen could currently be able to shape shift, since we don't know what his bankai did, we do however know how hax his Shikai is. So i'm going to educationally suggest he's doing his usual slithering around. Wouldn't surprise me if there's a snake with his face on it up some tree pesting.
Apparently it wasn't interesting enough to see Ichigo find ways to counter his zanpaktou, instead, Kubo had to power him up, to make him just as dangerous as his zanpaktous abilty (and then boosting them both to SuperSaiyan 3 mode), then letting his zanpaktous ability vanish, to replace the strength the villain holds for something more "suitable" for Ichigo.
Seriously, what happened to his Zanpaktou that every was so afraid of?
It frustrates me to no end when reading Bleach that the story is so inconsistent, plotkai, intented or not intented, truly destroys a good story.
Kubo destroyed all which he had set up with Soul Society, and early HM arc, when he made convenient plotkai changes, to match his need, instead of making a flow of development in the story.
Kubo is trying to change the story, when he's forgetting that a story is alive, it has soul.
You don't change life once it's made, (the story), you let it develop as it goes...
Bleach's good points is the amazing artwork, drawings, fights, the fantasy and amazingly imagined universe... But it's biggest weak point, by far, is its story development, truly imho.
The only thing that could redeem it a little, if only a little bit, would be to Aizen getting back the power that he was feared by in the first place.
Loosing his feared powers in the way he did (to his own stupidity), was too anticlimatic.
So the very least, I'd like Aizen to still have his original powers when(if) he returns.
Question is, will it be remotely interestingly written? or just a boring side character?
^ It could be said that Aizen was just so drunk on his new powers he completely neglected the old ones and then so astonished with Ichigo's power that he didn't even have the wherewithal to use KS. That's how I think about it anyway, because yeah, it is stupid that he never used it. Also, it's strange that he never even bothered placing Ichigo under KS's spell. Sure, he had no reason to until the very end, but surely it's just sensible to make sure absolutely everyone is subject to Kanzen Saimin, no? Plot.
Anyway regarding his Bankai - I suspect we will be seeing it in the future. I happen to think part of the reason it was never revealed is a similar reason to Yama being more willing to kill his entire leadership with his Shikai instead of using his Bankai on Aizen, because there's a plan to use it properly in this arc. (Actually, Yama using Bankai in the World of the Living would have probably lead to about a million dead bystanders, but the point still stands)
Yama sacrificed his arm with another forbidden spell...that did nothing of note to Aizen....though to be fair he was technically immortal at that point. His unnecessary lost of limb greatly contributed to his later demise.
Transcended Aizen lvl 90 chanted full powered Kido didn't scratch Ichigo...not even a scratch.
