Welcome to the Quarter Finals of championship fights of the second Bleach Tournament!
Here are the contestants who will battle against each other to advance to the next round in the championship bracket:
This was a previous matchup in the last tournament. I remember it well, and like last time... Kyoraku takes this.
I also go with Kyoraku, especially now since he has just become Captain Commander.
Yoruichi. She isn't stupid, she would play along while carefully analyzing his abilities and would take as much benefit as Shunsui. Other than that, she is hella fast and has Shunko, that with addition to her speed can become troublesome. Kyoraku being a CC doesn't affect his power in any way.
Shunsui is a CC of the Gotei 13, so it means that he is currently the strongest Shinigami of Gotei going by Yama's words that the strongest becomes the CC, so I seriously doubt that going by this and Shunsui's fits, that were named by freshseth83, that Yoruichi will win.
Shunsui should take it. Especially with his Shikai that is quite tricky and strong, while Yoruichi has only Shunko to attack. At the same time I can't see her speed beeing considerably faster than Shunsui's in order to use it as a real fit. I even doubt there really is any differense between them, since Shunsui was easily around Starrk's speed level and was praised by Yama in terms of his speed.
Hard to choose. Yoruichi is way too fast for most of Kyoraku's attacks to reach her, and she may even use some of them, like Takaoni, against him. On the other hand, we don't know much about the full extent of their powers. Kyoraku is yet to show his bankai, and we've never seen Yoruichi's zanpakuto in a fight. But based on what we do know, I say Yoruichi can beat him.
Honestly I was one of those thta voted Ulquiorra over Yoruichi, and I think that fight would be closer than this one since Yoruichi's lacking a ton of feats
While what she's shown is impressive, I don't think it's enough to win here
Going with yoruichi. Going by the fact that she can react to chrysalis aizen somewhat gives her top tier reactions consider chrysalis aizen blitzed isshin,uruhara and ichigo with casual step seemingly effortlessly.
Her damage output is incredibly bieng able punch cavities within aizen's shell who can withstand hadou's in the 90 easily and take a slash from isshin barefooted. One punch with shunko can probably punch shunsui to smitherens.
Yoruici should have the power and reactions to react shunsui's underhanded tactics an attack accordingly to the situation she is in. Yoruichi needs to hit shunsui once and he's a goner.
Shunsui takes this for me. He has more feats, we've seen more action from him. Yoruichi is fast, and impressive. But she hasn't shown enough to handle Shunsui.
I lean toward Shunsui. Yoruichi is very fast and shunko is a very dangerous technique but I think Shunsui has what it takes to avoid a fatal blow, he even dodged Starrk's no-pose cero from close range. He also has two swords and a very tricky shikai which may be troublesome for Yoruichi.
1. She's not outspeeding Shunsui? Are we reading the same manga? Show me where Shunsui proved to be at least fast. He can cover big distance with one leap, that's the only statement, that was made in manga. Still, he was far slower than Yamamoto.Quote:
2. Shunsui AND UKITAKE fought with Yama. And it's pretty important thing, as Ukitake can redirect any reiattsu-based attack. That fights DOESN'T prove, that is a tank.
3. He ate Stark's cero and it didn't have an effect? The fact is, he took it and fell on the floor helplessly, then didn't want to fight and waited with his head in the rubble, hoping Vaizards will clean it up.
4. So nowadays losing an eye is a testament of being a tank? Damn. I wonder how tanky someone has to be to lose whole arm! It's not really strange, considering every Shinigami's reiatsu is protecting the body. Ichigo could handle Kirge's arrows in Vollstandig and wasn't even scratched. Shunsui's reiatsu wasn't big enough to repel that arrow.
Yoruichi just doesn't stack up to Shunsui. Speed wins nothing except a game of tag. She has no counter for the games Shunsui plays. She doesn't know the rules, she doesn't know theres even games. Shunsui switched games in mere seconds. He used bushogoma to surround Starrk then immediately went to takaoni. Then after he used kageoni he immediately switched to irooni and called gray. Even if Yoruichi manages to figure out one game theres 3 others Shunsui can switch to, then back again.
