And I believe that the one who defeated Kenpachi was Yhwach himself, who AFTER THAT switched places with Royd (who then grabbed Kenpachi by the neck). Contrived, yes, but hardly a plot hole again.
I believe the main problem with Bleach fandom is that they call "plot hole" and "bad writing" things that they just don't like. Again: I too feel that the whole "twin decoy" play was a little off-putting and anticlimatic, but it makes sense in the setting. Please stop trying to find logical faults and just say that you feel disappointed and believe Kubo should have came up with something better.
Aizen pwned Gotei 13 + Vizards, in a sense it's normal, because he had not only the power, but the perfect tool for that : KS
Yama was said to be the strongest shinigami, and have been a CC for 1K years, it would be ridiculous if he couldn't pwn like he did (but then again, he pwned 3 SR not in their Vollstandig form)
Juha Bach seems extremely strong too, but he seems as cunning as much as Aizen too
Now, the thing with Byakuya and others, is that they are fighters who rely a lot on their Bankais, there has never been a single fight where Byakuya didn't use his Bankai, and the SR are no weaklings either, they're clearly captain level, Byakuya could've fought with his Shikai/Kido against As Nodt without using her (or his?) Vollstandig, but he couldn't beat her (or him ?) at all, and Quincy knew that, hence why they made the medallion thing : to be 100% sure about their victory
But I admit that Kenpachi beating 3 SR was just plain absurd and nonsensical... But I guess that was a way for Kubo to hype Juha Bach rather than show us Kenpachi's strenght
Kubo could've made Bleach better if there was a real PLOT, plotwise, Bleach is miles away from let's say OP or Berserk for instance, but it's not Kubo's style, as he has his own philosophy anyway so can't argue much with thatQuote:

And I just don't see him really claiming he asked recently, could have asked him 100 years ago. Maybe the translation is better some where els but here it leaves the door open to Aizen not speaking to Juha or his stooges in prison but rather having been approached before he was locked up.
Why the hell would someone of Aizen's stature and power be led by someone like Juha Bach? He'd probably be in line to succeed the Captain Commander.
I dunno why but for some reason I wish Ginjo was still around, it'd make for interesting storytelling although I don't know how he'd fit in. It's always good to have a couple factions out there for potential battle royals and power struggles.
I believe Kubo killed him off quickly because readers didn't like him nor the arc that starred him. Such a shame. A writer should never have to rush a story when people don't like it.
