I think that an importan thing here is Kuugos mental state in his fight with Ichigo. As the fight continued he started to thing about the past, and about Ichigo and about everythin just not about fighting. In Bleach resolve i50% of the fight, its the ssame in really life. Ginjou lost his motivation and he lost that hight prettym easly. If he would be focused the fight would be much longer and not one sided at all.
Ichigo is like a faster version of Zaraki with a long range attack. Kuugo is pretty much the same he would winn with Keny. Imho simply because he just like Ichigo is abetter evrsion of Zaraki. Its not like Zaraki would be able to catch Ginjou himself of his sword. The ony thinh Zaraki could do is to let Kuugo stab him but Kuugos sword isnt a small knife, Geting stabed by it isnt a good idead.
i hope to see kenpachi fighting more as he did vs ichigo in the SS and especial after he get train by the first kenpachi.
I think the fight could got either way. Zaraki could win, but not without high difficulty. Same for Ginjou. As I look, alot of peple seem to think Ginjou was pure fodder. I fail to see how he is. I reread the manga, and running down his battle with Ichigo, he's not as pathetic as some make him. I did an short essay on their fight. Here's a copy and pasted quote.
Kenpachi takes it. The guy soloe'd 3 sternritters. One of them bieng as strong as him,another one possibly went into his volstandig and one of them was in base. Then his patched reiatsu actually affected the guy that was strong enough to cut ichigo's blade into 2. He even withstood yam's heat while near death and in a coma something royd needs his blut for. Ginou might be lucky if he forces him to unpatch but he ain't beating kenpachi.
Kenpachi would dominate easy mode, probably get slashed up here and there startled by the Hollow-Bankai.. but that's it. I don't even see him removing his eye-patch for that one.
THIS Kenpachi.. is the one that killed 3 Sternritters effortlessly. To think that he would lose from trash like Ginjo is laughable to say the least. And I'm talking about the restricted-Kenpachi. The unleashed Kenpachi would solo everyone there including the good guys effortlessly.
