    What's Your Favorite Bankai/Shikai?


    Ban Kais - the second release of the Soul Slayer, the manifestation and suppression of the soul of the sword into an unbelievably powerful technique.

    For myself, I gotta admit nothing still quite beats Byakuya's Senbonzakura Kageyoshi for full dramatic effect. Though it's just a ten-times over version of the original shi kai version, I can't imagine any other ban kai being quite as powerful. Even Ichigo's Ten Sa Zan Getsu had trouble against it.

    That's the ban kai I'd definitely want. Though I'm wondering what Gin's ban kai would be like...

    For me, it would be a toss up between Hitsugaya's and

    Definately Byakuya's bankai, just for the sheer power and the number of options he has with it. Renji's bankai comes in second just because I like the look of his bankai, now that is a baboon king!

    I agree ... Senbon Zakura of Kuchiki Byakuya ...the first time I saw that row of swords I literally gasped.

    I'm still waiting for Suzumebachi of Soi Fong to obtain bankai cuz that will be awesome.

    Re: What's your favorite Ban Kai ?

    I guess Byakuya's is the best one we've seen so far, atleast in my opinion. Mostly because it had so many different moves and purposes. He could defend and attack with it.

    That said my favorite is still Hitsugaya's. Even though we haven't seen much of it. I think as he progresses in the story, he'll develop it much more and make it better. Eventually it will be a very good bankai.

    I really can't wait to see other characters' bankais. We've only seen a few and most of them have been great.

    Re: What's your favorite Ban Kai ?

    nii sama again. As usual, we are all struck by the awesomeness of nii sama. XD Senbonzakura Kageyoshi. It's just a brilliant bankai considering how it functions.

    Hitsugaya's bankai is superbly awesome too from it's look. I like the ice dragon and so on. Perhaps in another 100 to 200 years, when he grows up, he might beat Yamamoto too since we all know that ice > fire.

    Another great bankai will be Aizen's. He makes Hitsugaya's bankai looks like a kid.

    From those we've seen so far Byukuga's is definitely the best. It's really beautiful but yet powerful in attack and defense. Great one.
    To be honest: Ichigo's bankai doesn't impress me much so far.

    Just wait for Ichigo. Once he masters the hollow within himself, his bankai will be awesome. He will be invincible. Experienced Byukuga lost to an ameteur Ichigo. He should be no match against an experienced Ichigo.

    Favorite Ban Kai?

    Spoiler show


    Personally, I like Hitsugaya's Ban Kai, since I've always had a thing for Ice Dragons, and I personally think fusion type Bankai's are the best (as opposed to materalization types - like Kurotsuchi or Komamura).

    The one Ban Kai I really want to see is Urahara. Benihime is too great a name to not know the Ban Kai.
