I think it is obvious to see that just as Arroniro Arleri said, the differences amongst released forms between the espada and the rest of the arrancar are huge.
For instance a released form of a numero, as we saw with Ifforte and the others, is one of a simple structural change. In the case of Ifforte the major structural gain was horns and a bull shaped shell around his upper body, against the 11th arrancar it was claws. As we have seen with the privaon, the higher ranked arrancar tend to have releases that actually grant extra abilities instead of just structural changes. The privion Ichgio fought could form cyclones, the one ishida fought could fire pulsating blades of reiatsu, the one chad fought could shot balls of energy.
Besides the couple of exceptions like luppis tentacles and Leones from the numero, the general trend is espada releases are alot more complex and extravagent. We have seen Arroniro Arleri's release, what given the look and the personalities of the rest of the espada, what predictions would you all have for the rest of the espada????
I don't think we can make any predictions yet; AA was the only gillian Espada.
All we really have at this point is Grimmjaw's release command "Grind". I don't know....giant maces for arms perhaps?
And, AA's command is "Devour, Glutoneria (Hollow Eater)".
as far as wild guesses I'll go for animal themes:
snake for Noitora and wolf for Grimjow
but I'm more curious wether the Privaron Espada were adjuchas or gillians
cause it just might be that the adjuchas' release comes with additional abilities while the gillian's one is just the structural change
That's a tought one but here I go
Ulquiorra is a silent killer so a bat theme fits him ...he will have bat wings, horns...you know a devilish look and he will look really scary
Noitora gives a feaky vibe so I am thinking he will have a tail and look like a reptile..may be even scales on his skin
Stark is sleepy and a demon theme suits him well..he will look like a demon with long arms, big feet, pointy chin and blades on his body
Halibel hides her face so I am thinking she will look llike medusa when she releases..you know snakes for hair..not very imaginative but it's all I can think of
I don't expect the above espadas to become significantly bigger
I can't think of something for the rest for now.
well Ulquiorra's may be a creature with lots of eyes as to which his sword's theme and his sight recording ability.
Some sugestions for Grimmjow:
For the rest of them I think animal themes probably would happen, but in like an extremely warped way you know, loosely based around animals.
I don't think the espada change in appearance after they release I mean look at Noitora wtf is up with that zanpkatou where was is it when he spoke with Ulquiorra I think espada release affects the zanpaktou and not the user making it similar to a shinigami's
They all have some sort of animal/object theme.
Ulquiorra, in my guess will be a snake type. A couple reasons. A) it seems like Kubo is reusing the overall theme for Orihime's brother B) the segments on his mask could go down much further C) the eyes D) in asian philosophy, the snake represents intellectual thought, reserved nature, with quick, deadly attacks. This seems VERY Ulquiorra-ish
Yammy will be ape-like, I just know it.
Grimmjow will most likely be something jaw-related. I can totally see him being sharkish, but I don't see how that'd work with his style of fighting. He may, instead, have a form only mildly resembling an animal (like doldoni's) and it focuses more on enhanced abilities.
