Okay, so, recent development shown that a lot of people trust that Ichigo is the only one that can defeat Aizen.
He got a chance because he's captain-level (maybe more according to Unohana) and because he didn't see Aizen's release.
My question is : Who else didn't see Aizen's release and, therefore, would have a chance against him?
For sure, Ichigo's friends didn't see it :
But, they don't see strong enough to even have a chance against Aizen (unless Orohime can suddenly "reject Aizen's existence" )
Are there some from Soul Society that didn't see it?
- Did Renji see it?
- Did Rukia see it?
I think Renji saw it, but I'm not sure about Rukia.
What about the ones that left Soul Society?
- Did Urohara see it?
- Did Yoruichi see it?
- Did Tessai see it?
- Did the two kids see it?
- Did Isshin see it?
Urohara, Yoruichi and Tessai might have seen it during the year they were there...
The two kids with Urohara might not be that strong, but they still didn't see Aizen's release.
As for Isshin, I'm pretty sure he didn't see it.
I mean... he left Soul Society before the even of Pendulum (I think).
And as far as I know, Isshin is pretty strong (stronger than Ichigo?) and could have a shot against Aizen too.
And let's not forget that Kubo said that Isshin would be very important in the next arc (Isshin training Ichigo?)
What about the Squad Zero?
I'm sure all of those guys didn't see Aizen's release...
Instead of hoping for Ichigo to pull something crazy, I wonder why Yama-ji didn't request some help from the Squad Zero...
And of course, there's still Tousen, who is blind, and thus, who isn't under Aizen's influence.
Is there any chance for him to turn good?
I doubt it, but it would certainly be interesting.
So who get a shot at Aizen!?
Who didn't see Aizen's release and might be strong enough to beat him:
- Squad Zero
- Urohara? (He would be strong enough, but he might have seen it)

All the Vice-Captains saw it.
I'm not sure for the people below them, but I think Aizen didn't have to show them his power since they are really not worth it. But it's only my opinion xD
Only Ichigo and his friends are immune......and maybe Isshin....Unohana already stated that veryone has seen it,included Urahara group.And it's kinda likely that Mifune Taichou(RG) has seen it too...
Aizen's advantage didn't change a bit: Ichigo has only A CHANCE to take down him, before he shows Ichigo his release.
I don't think Aizen is going to fall for a one-hit attack, even because Ichigo doesn't have an attack like that, for now at least. Ichigo will have to defeat Aizen in a long fight, so he will have to overcome his shikai, his bankai and his mask. The dude is calling himself a god, so in order to take down a god you must become a greater god yourself...

Ichigo will need far more than Ichigonator to defeat Aizen: he needs to become stronger than him, that's enough said... UNLESS Kubo doesn't decide to make a lame plot twist by giving Ichigo the reiatsu of his friends, of the nature or some shit along these lines...

He was able to stop Ichigo's bankai with a finger, and stop Tessai casting with his own without singing the chant...
He's shown that he's one of the strongest to avoid being hit, but he didn't shown any attack (except when he slashed Momo and Harribel).
Now, I hope we are going to see him fight against the strongest of Soul Society so that we can really evaluate if he's strong or not..
Separate Aizen's shikai from his overall strength is nonsense: kyouka suigetsu is Aizen's strength.
I think it should be classified as plotkai tough: it's just too overpowered, on par with Inoue's rejection skills.
No one in the gotei 13 had so much as a shred of a chance of not seeing aizen's shikai. The simple possibility does not exist; aizen is far to smart to make such a mistake. He easily had over 110 years to put every captain, VC and member of the squads to do that. We have no idea of ishin's backstory so it is kinda hard to say. I doubt someone as himself would stay out of the war if he was such an important asset in it though. Ishida's dad is another possibility but it is very hard to know without knowing his backstory. The only safe bets here are uryu, ichigo, orihime and chad; orihime has been around aizen for a while though, it is plausible she has also been put under it off screen.
I had a theory that aizen was the son of a traitor from the King's real. To save his son, he banished aizen from the king's realm. Everyone thought aizen was dead, but really he was hiding in SS under another persona waiting for the perfect chance to strike lol
But no, aizen is not god. If his shikai was truly absolute, what is stopping him from owning all the captains now? Why didn't he just use his shikai to own everyone on sokyoku hill? Thing is, there must be limits to his shikai. Whehter that is how many people he can confuse at one time or how long he can maintain an illusion or how many illusions he can cast.
Unohana's statement to me applies to 1-on-1. It would be almost impossible ot beat aizen due to the illusions, but it is also hard for him to beat all of ss
My question is, Ichigo only has to see the release once. Can't Aizen release his sword, dodge his first attack and vola, has Ichigo caught in it?
I don't see how Kubo can work his way around Aizen's insanely strong release.
here. Yoruichi threatened to decapitate him if he tried anything.
If I were Aizen, I would at least kill the senior captains one by one long before revealing my true abilities. His reluctance to do so and his remark about the espada indicate that his faith in his power is not absolute.
