Team 1 (Soifon, Tessai Tsukabishi, Riruka Dokugamine)
Team 4 (Rōjūrō Ōtoribashi, Shūkurō Tsukishima, Momo Hinamori)
The explanation vs assumption thing doesn't mean much here, considering it's Bleach. If it's not told to us, all we can do is assume.
He also didn't point out that Tsuki knew about his no-damage zone before Tsuki himself said it (If he did it at all), doesn't at all make it less true that Tsuki knew about it. This is an arbitrary condition you're trying to apply here, I see no reason to allow itQuote:
No they aren't, you're just not accepting them. I've given ample evidence to establish my position that fiits with what we know, if you see it differently or refuse to see it that way it doesn't make it a weak argument, because it's supported. Whether you accept it or not has no bearingQuote:
They explained a concept, Kenpachi nor Aizen specified themselves alone, they spoke of spiritual beings/powers (Depending on translation) or Shinigami period. No reason at all to think this concept applies only to themQuote:
Because it took him by surprise? That can still happen no matter who you are, you know, especially if you're doing what Tsuki did, which was relying on what Byakuya wouldn't do and getting dangerously close to him. Byakuya released SBZ at point blank and it blasted through his gut. Given that neither Byakuya not Tsuki were able to dodge SBZ at close range when it entered his no-damage zone, a lack of dodging there doesn't at all mean Tsuki's speed never increasedQuote:
As for the bolded. There a reason you're implying I omitted familiarity from my argument when I didn't?
Anyway, where's the response to the rest of my post? It was not only relevant to the argument but also to the topic itself:
Does the lack of response indicate you agree or that you think my points are so terrible it's not worthy of a response? Lol

The "pointing out" argument was weak on my part, so will concede there and I do agree with that first line in the quote.
Wouldn't be upsetting if Team 4 wins, I don't want to sound like I think Tsuki is weak/not super dangerous, and IMO he definitely won't be speed blitzed by Soifon even without hitting her with BoTE, so I agree with you on that. I don't believe I said otherwise, but brain is too crammed right now.
It's all good, brethren
In the end I do admit that the panel doesn't make it obvious that Tsuki flat out became more powerful, so your points aren't lost here.
As for who I think wins, I'll say that how well Tsuki's BoTE allows him to combat either Tessai or Soi Fon will be the crutch here. I still lean toward Team 4, but I'm probably less confident in that vote now
Team 1 would be my bet. Tsukishima is dangerous, but Soi makes it a point to be an assassin and be untouched. Shes key in this fight imo. Not seen enough of Rose to make a case for him. I hope that changes soon.
Team 1 (Soifon, Tessai Tsukabishi, Riruka Dokugamine) : 22
Team 4 (Rōjūrō Ōtoribashi, Shūkurō Tsukishima, Momo Hinamori) : 6
Team 1 advances to the next round.
