yes, we already know this, but what I'm saying is could have a deep reason, linking all the events into one, something that could be well hidden until now
and about the pic, I believe Byakuya is talking about Renji, who was defeat by his bankai a little before his fight with Ichigo
It's not Renji, Byakuya didn't use senkei on him.
^ No, he did, remember? http://www.onemanga.com/Bleach/143/10/
After Hihou Zabimaru broke, Renji tried to rush him and got hit with the Senkei swords. It wasn't the full thousand blade version, but it was still Senkei in principle.
On topic, I think Urahara does deserve a full Gaiden. Yes, we know the basic circumstances, but his exile encompasses the storylines of several characters, including a few we know next to nothing about (Isshin, the Vaizards, etc.). Random asides here and there couldn't do it justice. And it'd be awesome either way, so I'd still love to see it.

I understand your logic, but I figure that it's a little much to have him never have used it before except on Renji - plus, it's only for "Those he swore to kill by his own hand."
No way he ever gave Renji that much respect, even in his final desperate assault, or considered him anything but a worthless dog until after Ichigo knocked some compassion into him.
I figure that, used as he seems to be to destroying people with his base-form Bankai, there'd have to be someone mighty serious to make him pull out the full-on senkei dome.
Plus I love Senbonzakura Kageyoshi and want to see more of it. (^_^) So I hope I'm right.
^ He let him have his scarf after he collapsed! How much more respectful could you get!? XD
Seriously, though, I don't see why not. Nii-sama didn't show any hint that he'd need to use Bankai against Renji--he could've easily stabbed his throat after the Rikuju Kourou--so using SBK was total overkill IMO. Given his personality, acknowledging Renji's courage and growth is the only logical explalantion--this is the same guy that bashed Zomari after losing and arm and a leg, while all Renji did was make him stumble and gasp. So all that extra attention wouldn't come lightly.
Personally the gaiden i would like to see above all others would have to Urahara and Yoruichi as they are both such great characters and through their history a lot can be found out about many other key characters.
Also i would like one on gin as i think he a cool character and also he has a history with matsumoto

I don't personally think there's anyone here who wouldn't like to see Uruhara's back story right now :P ID like to see some other captains back stories though maybe how Ikkaku found the hidden training spot. Who knows.
On the byakuya topic, I believe the sword attack may have been kido because he fired it from his fingers. And its true byakuya could have killed renji w/o bankai. All he had to do was kido his ass.
And I agree, I would love to see some captain gaidens. Like how uki and shunsui are the only ones with twin blades and how they got it. But I would also like to see more of urahara
I agree with Neuroff. I mean, he didn't swear to kill Renji, just to stop him. Also, I think he was referring to the whole dome of swords, not just 5 or 10.
I'm expecting a history about:
Yamamoto Genryuusai Shigekuni:Of course,who doesn't want to know the almighty Shinigami among all?The one who duel against the strongest "twin" captains in Soul Society ALONE and the one who created the Shingami Academy!Everything about him affects the timeline,we must have him in this arc!
Unohana Retsu:The big mama of Soul Society,I loved her and certainly she will have her own gaiden.I think she might have something to do with the previous 5th Division's captain,Seigen Suzunami and his sister,Konoka.I saw her with the 5th Division captain's lil' sister talking with a gloomy background.Women problems I guess.Maybe that's one of her dark history?But I'm just taking this out of the screen cap of the newest DS Bleach game.
Urahara Kisuke:Not much to be said,he's one of the most important characters in Bleach.Along with Shihouin Yoruichi,his partner!
Kurosaki Isshin:When the first time the long secret of him being a Shinigami was revealed,I was itching to get to know him better and how he knew Urahara and Ryuken.I want to know especially about his torn captain-like cloth on his shoulder that will confirm he's a captain!
i pretty much agree on the list that tsukisama and TCO made
