    Don't understand why Byakuya would release his Bankai when Renji is right there. Byakuya's own Bankai is so much more verstaile and a bigger loss from being sealed/stolen.

    2) The most obvious one:
    Why in the world could it have not been lieutenants that used bankai for this get-the-precise-information idea?! Are they completelly stupid?! Strategically it would be much more clever:

    a) captains would be more capabale of handling the intruders after they got the information of what quincies do to bankai
    b) captains would be more likely to spot correctly what exactly the quincies do, if they were to observe from the sidelines, than lieutenants. It was already explained in Bleach, you're more likely to see what you need in your opponent if your reatsu matches or exceeds his.

    Also, the whole chapter felt like a badly written internet role-play. So, talking about plot composition, the chapter was utter crap, as well.
    1) My guess is that they felt there isn't enough time to share information if only one captain loses his bankai.
    2) Again my guess is, that those Quincies or whatever you like to call them, can choose what bankai to steal. So the logic behind this is pretty obvius, they wouldn't activate that device on any of lieutenants bankai's.

    And I wouldn't discard captains just yet. It's true, they have lost their bankai, for now atleast. But they can still put pretty decent fight without one.
    I'm NOT sorry for my bad English.

    all in all it works for several reasons (that im sure many of you have named already)
    byakuya actually did prodigous things. in his new fighting style he does not need bankai, a handful of petals from his shikai is sufficient for him like he did with tsukishima

    especially since 4 have just been sealed

    we'll see.....i mean its pretty clear that these enemies are FAR above what the fullbringers brought into the fight as enemies....in that situation he showed that he learnt to try new things (learnt something from Kenpachi's style), thats not necessarily amazing....

    Only one thing stirs my emotion. Aku. Soku. Zan. For the sake of my justice alone!

    if there's one good thing about the captains losing their bankais, it's that we are about to witness new and interesting possibilities that will decide the outcome of this first round of battle.

    it doesn't matter whether byakuya's bankai is stolen and he gets crushed: in every fight of his,byakuya always is almost dead with that huge amount of blood he loses,yet he wins

    Re: Bleach 496 Discussion/ 497 Predictions

    I think Shunsui's bankai will be next seeing as how he was already in shikai from the start of the fight which for him is rare. As far as the captains, they have plenty at their disposal, plus we've seen them fight without their bankai before. Now what I've never seen is toshiro using a bunch of kido and as a captain and prodigy, he should know a fairly decent amount. Byakuya will just use Danku to block all of the Quincies attacks although they'll probably absorb it. Soi fon will just fight the way she always fights using her shunko. If anyone is to die from the loss of their bankai, it'd probably be Komamura since we've never really seen anything else from him and his quickly becoming irrelevant as a captain. More than likely, the captains will either figure out someway to stop or limit the reishi absorbtion of the Quincies, or they'll figure out someway to poison the reishi they do absorb. Other than that, the only way to beat them would be just to be plain stronger than them...which we don't know yet because we haven't seen any of them really fight. For humans though (if that's what they are) they sure can take a lot of punishment as demonstrated by Kirge...so it should be interesting either way...

    As he himself said , these are not enemies you can take down with only Shikai . That was a risk he had to take . Everyone who can do Bankai has to take this risk , after all there's a slight change they won't be able to steal it away , just how happened in Ichigo's case .

    Yeah i know Ichigo is on a different lvl but it may be possible at least in Yamamoto's case . And well even the captains had a chance but i guess in the end it depends on the person who steals the Bankai Which makes me think the Quincy that are now facing each captain are stronger than them

    Well atleast Quincies seem to be able to stand/walk in the air in SS, probably fight too, due to this page.

    Most likely, it's a plothole I'd guess, since it's a good question indeed, and here he's standing in the air all fine all of a sudden.

    Re: Bleach 496 Discussion/ 497 Predictions

    After reading some of fan translations of novel "Spirits are forever with you" I've came up with some crazy theory why they are stealing bankais other then make captains less dangerous.

    It is possible they want to use all of the stolen bankais at the same time on Zaraki, 'couse the "only" way to take down and beat Zaraki is to finish him fast enough so he doesn't have time to adapt.
