Also, I too wonder what her bankai does/did... I thought the melting thing was a metaphor/in the mind of Kenpachi - but perhaps it was her ability... Pity it wasn't explained very well...
But anyway, next to current Zaraki, nope, no one who isn't a Royal Guard (even that's debatable) or probably Juhabach himself isn't getting trashed.
Well, this isn't really fair for Orihime. The only impressive thing we've seen from her recently is her brief face-off against Ginjo over healing Ichigo. Her new shield might be an effective weapon, depending on how exactly it works. Anyway, I voted for Kenpachi, since Inoue makes for a good support character in the team rounds, and really wouldn't be able to win here anyway.
But yeah, I would also, probably. However, I can imagine people will use the Aizen-Soi fong effect (too strong = cancel effect BS - I still don't believe this was anything more than an illusion on Aizen's part. He does love to mess with his opponents minds).
Seriously it isn't even a challenge.
As he is now after winning against Unohana and finally getting to know his Shikai's name he should be the second strongest Captain after Shunsui, so no way his opponents in this fight, since Inoue and Komamura would be out in a blink of an eye, while Love never showed his Bankai, so for noiw we can only consider him as we know and with his Shikai and Mask only he can't win against Zaraki, even though I believe he could take down other participants in this group.
Voted for Orihime, because I figure she can just reject Kenpachi's victory.
She can't do that if he kills her.
Kenpachi wins this round. I think there are a few opponents left that can beat him. He doesn't know his zanpakuto's name yet. And hes still brash. Someone with finesse and hax could kill him. But Orihime's hax ability isn't strong enough here. Neither are the other fighter's strengths. Kommamura may get a powerup soon in the manga but his time is now in the tournament. Love was no match for Starrk even with Rose. He probably is strong but imo not Zaraki level even with mask.
I'd say people like Starkk, Shunsui, Barragan, and Back could beat Kenpachi. He's not unbeatable, far fom it. But he wins this easily...
