Among all bankais we have seen so far, Tensa Zangetsu Version 3 (the recent one) is my favorite. We have already seen how powerful this form is. It has really really good design. Ichigo looks lot more stronger, calm and disciplined. Yet, the sword, gives an eerie feeling.

It's difficult to chose, but I would nominate Tensa Zangetsu from the fight with Aizen after Dangai training with the chain wrapped around Ichigo's arm. It was really great design and of course its power was tremendous.
Hitsugaya Toushiro Hyōrinmaru
Hitsugaya's Daiguren Hyōrinmaru
It's strong and flexible, it can be used as a defensive weapon as well as an offensive weapon.
BANKAI! Tensa Zangetsu.
Edit:New one BTW not the old one.

I begrudgingly nominate Tensa Zangetsu . First it gave him super speed, then it did nothing, and finally it just went ???? with its abilities.
Zaraki Kenpachi's it exists i guarantee it

I'm at loss that nobody picked Byakuya here...does anyone have a more versatile and more beautiful bankai then him? I think not...Senbonzakura Kageyoshi!!
Versatile, beautiful, and I say almost unstopable, if Kubo doesn't troll for the sake of plot. Inprisoning Zommari like that, not even showing himself, can cut you down to pieces in an instant. Plus the more cruel form....~
Lol I wouldn't mind dying while I see sakura leaves everywhere... so romantic
Downgrade: it doesn't change his design like Tensa Zangetsu (making Ichigo 60% cooler ;D).. but then, Byakuya is gorgeous in his shihakusho and haori and kenseikans in hair, so I don't mind
Kamishini no Yari from Gin Ichimaru
Senbonzakura Kageyoshi, since it is likely the most versatile bankai there is.
He is facing "slow" opponents? Base form is ok. He is facing someone that can elude his primary ability? Fine, he has the dome of swords. He wants to end the fight? Fine, he has Goukei. He wants to win with style? Hakuteiken, one of the most beautiful attacks there is.
Granted is a bit girly, but say that to his face
Kamishini no Yari too. Gin used his bankai in a wrong way to hide his real abilities and yet the bankai was so damn powerful. one slice and you cut down a whole city? loool and that final ability that kills an opponent from the inside is too cool.
I wish there were more to choose from but I guess I'll also agree with Kamishini no Yari. The speed is just amazing and Gin's use of it was fantastic.
Honorable mentions to Tekken Tachikaze because of the form and Jakuho Raikoben just because of the name.
