Wow, so Unohana was the first Kenpachi and her first name is actually Yachiru; who would said that she was related in any way to Kenpachi? We'll see the sensible side of Ken-chan soon
P.D.: Who's going to occupy the free seats on 8th division? I'll say that gonna be some of the left vizards (if not, new characters?)
One thing I found shameful, was the fact that Tessai didn't get to fight at all : Hachigen, who was his lieutenant fought against Barragan and showed us how Kido can be awesome, I hope Tessai will get to fight too and show some amazing Kido techniques (I believe he may've helped Urahara to come up with the seals Urahara used)
That's what I'm wondering. Removing a Captain is fine if the VC's there to pick up the reins, but without Shunsui or Nanao, the 8th Division is leaderless. Well, I guess the 3rd seat could assume the role, but are they even qualified? And since the Vandenreich's massacre it's not like there are many people to choose from as a replacement.
Actually, Zehahaha's right, there are ex-Captains lurking around Earth. But I suspect there's a reason they didn't return to the Gotei 13 in the first place. Maybe it's just because there was no need for them, with all the seats filled, but they could have chosen not to. Hiyori for one actively hates Shinigami. Love may have a chip on his shoulder too. I can see Lisa joining as a favour to Shunsui, though. I feel like she has a grudging loyalty to him.
And yeah, even with all this going on, we haven't heard a peep from the Kido Corps Captain and VC. Given that they don't rely on Zanpakuto and Bankai like other Shinigami do, you'd think they'd be a valuable asset against the Quincy.

I thought they rejoined already. However, Just because they aren't a part of Gotei 13 doesn't mean they won't help. the Chiba clan can take over 8th division. I have no reason to think they are weak or strong. There plenty of characters made to look weak only for them to be really strong. Kubo can flip that switch whenever.
Unohana the 1st Kenpachi......well we definetly know where all the 'fear' of Unohana came from, but i gotta say i wasnt too surprised to find out she was this kind of person...even tho i wouldnt have guessed THE KENPACHI, ever since i read that her real Zanpakuto form is the Nodachi that sort of told us someone who wields that type of sword is a brute force type....
great fucking chapter tho!!
had a smile on my face for a good 15 minutes at work after reading it ppl were lookin at me funny
I wonder. Will Zaraki kenpachi finally learn to use shikai or even bankai?
Well.. We will see soon enough
Ow and this remind me of some time ago when I posted this:

Hachi, Lisa, Hiyori, Love and Mashiro are still in the human world. Well, I say that, but we haven't seen all of them. Hiyori, Mashiro and Hachi are definitely in the human world, the others are unaccounted for.
Either way Unohana doesn't initially appear to fit the role of a Kenpachi all that well given the fact that the 11th Division looks down on anyone who uses Kido or anything other then raw skill/swordsmanship for that fact. But i'm sure there is a great back story to all of this. Maybe as time wore on Unohana came to regret the things she did and decided to repent for those acts by not participating in battles and decided to save lives rather then take them. Another interesting thing that i can't help but think was very important foreshadowing was the fact that Kubo showed us Kyoraku's entire name. That definitely wasn't just for show.
