Anyone remember those three arrancars shown After Ulq and Yammy return from their first encounter to report to Aizen; chapter 198. A fat one, a thin one, and an old looking one, and never shown again? Kubo has a tendency to bring up little appearances, even hundreds of chapters later; Superchunky eye thing. Fura i think it was called. Also grand fisher, who I thought was oddly left out of Aizen's "I planned your life" speech to Ichigo.
Another small appearance I think Kubo will bring up again was the "leader" of Aizen's three goons in Gin's flashback. I assumed he was the next seat under Aizen, then realized Gin killed the previous third seat who he would replace in order to get close to Aizen in TBTP. Then I randomly thought of how Gin used hallway manipulation to lead Rukia to AA, and that AA was last of "first gen espada", which doesn't seem to make sense considering Barragan being the previous leader of las noches. Of course that could mean the espada were formed before Las noches was taken. OR, a more fun idea is, that "the espada" was what Aizen would call his shinigami goons when he was a LT. to make them feel cool, and that AA was one (or two) of them. And it may make sense, taking souls to feed the hogyoku is something AA could be able to do (and the leader of Aizen's goons was holding the spirits in the same hand as glotoneria is on).
Then again, Kubo doesn't seem to love the hollows as there just seems to be a lot of arrancar inconsistencies so could all be nothing...
