finally got to see the live action Rurouni Kenshin movie, i think i can die happy now, finally a shounen manga successfully adapted into a truly great live action movie.....it seems there might be hope for Bleach 10 years from now
THAT MOVIE WAS FUCKING AMAZING!!!!!!!
I don't think ukitake and shunsui have "two" zampakuto. Each of them has a single zampakuto but they happen to have two swords each. I mean, shunsui has katen kyokotsu only, there is no other name for a zampakuto out there. Ukitake has sogyo no kotowari, there is no other name for a second zampakuto either. If shunsui and ukitake truly had 2 zampakuto then each of them would have a name and abilities of its own. Well, ishin and ichigo have the same zampakuto powers apparently however their zampakuto have different names, perhaps a shinigami having two different zampakuto would result in having 2 swords with 2 names but with the same abilities as the essence which would have formed both blades would be the same.
I wonder if that means they somehow got their hands on two asauchi or if the asauchi turned into two blades when they release shikai mode.

The Zanpakuto start out as Asauchi - un-named swords with no release commands. They then adapt to the soul of the person wielding them (and techniques are developed as the two work together).
It is possible that, somehow, Kyouraku (and maybe Ukitake also) obtained 2 Asauchi. Then, as both swords are adapting to the same person, they both developed the same release commands.
This would open up a question as to why no one else had ever done this since - but maybe the Asauchi are in short supply (unlikely considering all the free ones fighting Ichigo and Renji), or perhaps, most souls do not have the capability to use 2 Asauchi (but that would require more explanation as to how the Asauchi adapt to the soul)...
Though I don't suggest that being done for Bleach (I heard the idea to do it was actually there though).

Bleach has some great potential, but its pretty "absurd" to me for live action. That could be said for any though.
525 Prediction: Flashback. I think there's a very very high likelihood that it's a flashback, considering the way 525 ended.
I don't think it's necessary that just coz he had 2 blades, he had to have 2 Asauchi. It could just be that his Asauchi became 2 blades as part of its unreleased form of the Zanpuktou.
1 Asauchi ----> Zanpuktou and Shikai formation -----> Unreleased 2 blade form
As for Ukitake, his is just 1 blade that splits into two so this argument doesn't apply to him at all.
I just realized that kkck said the same thing....

as shown when I stated
I don't think there is a limited supply for asauchi. At any given time there are 6000 shinigami in sereitei and each academy student is given one by default and even then only a small fraction of academy graduates apparently makes it to being a full fledge shinigami. Even among shinigami, most of them do not actually even get shikai. Considering the implications of so many shinigami being useless and unable to actually get shikai (mostly the asauchi in question being alone for eternity) I would think their attitude suggests there is a sort of surpluss of asauchi lol.
I think that, since the Asauchi evolves to zampakutou according to the reiatsu that the shinigami imprints it with, and since at least Shunsui seems to have two different normal behaviours fluctuating between serious and responsible Shunsui and crazy ass womanizer shunsui perhaps, as those two behaviours are incompatible the asauchi had to evolve into two a zampakutou with two swords and two behaviours.
Shunsui rules, shinigami by day, party animal by night. hellss yeah!!
