Welcome to the Final of team fights of the second Bleach Tournament!
Here are the contestants who will battle against each other to win the team bracket:
TEAM 5 TEAM 10
Team 10 for the win. Gin's Bankai is as monstrous as ever, and he is backed by two extremely competent fighters capable of taking on their respective counterparts. Byakuya and Hachigen make for a competent and powerful combo, but I don't see them overcoming Team 10's abilities in long-range, Gin, and close-combat, Lisa, engagement, and Yumichika's shikai is just a bonus.
Yumichika's shikai is one of the most hax, second only to KS and Sakanade. It binds you and sucks away your reiatsu. Hisagi didn't stand a chance against it, why would Matsumoto? I don't think Yumichika will do much in battle between Lisa and Gin vs Hachigen and Byakuya. Lisa is very, very fast, surely one of strongest VC levels out there. Mask gives her a considerable boost, just like it gives Hachi. But are Hachi's abilities so strong, that fast opponents like Lisa and Gin wouldn't keep up? And is Hachigen fast enough to dodge Gin's Shinsou and Kamishini no Yari? I don't think so, Gin is just too damn strong and his zanpakuto is too damn fast. Team 10 for the win.
gin was scared by byakuya, but actually he was lying...byakuya is fast too,but he was pierced by the sword and fell down. gin really remembers me of Itachi Uchiha,both seem heavenly.rangiku should defeat yumichika,but between hachigen and lisa I wouldn't know,maybe kido is better than the other abilities.it really is a hard fight: byakuya's speed VS gin's sword's speed. I think he let byakuya save rukia back then,therefore I vote for gin...
Gin can OHKO either Hachi or Byakuya. Yumichika can easily beat Matsumoto, and if given an opening can probably KO Hachi. Hachi is strong, and so is Byakuya, however they both rely on strong fast attacks - they don't have endurance to tank a big blow, let alone Gin's Bankai. Plus, their defence speed is good but not great. Lisa is possibly the strongest VC, and can do some serious damage.
Team Gin wins...
Byakuya caught Gins sword before it hit Rukia, so its speed is not unfathomable. Gin is not as good as Byakuya overall imo. And senbonzakura can act as a defense to his sword. Byakuya doesn't even have to move a hand for his petals to form a barrier or a weapon. Not to mention he has millions of them. Then Hachi's barriers are amazing on top of it, combined with Byakuyas kido abilities. Matsumoto is hardly needed but to serve as another head to take on Lisa or Yumichika. i think Byakuya and co. take the win. The other team has shown little to no kido in comparison.
That said, Hachi and Yumichika are probably the key fighters, since I don't see Gin vs Byakuya fight coming to a close that fast. Yumichika has the advantage of having a rather unknown power, so, his team slightly has the edge there for me.
Hachi set up barriers with Respira coming his direction, Gins bankai should be no huge issue. He bragged about its speed and distance but then went and said he lied about it. Ichigo had little trouble dodging and reacting to it either. And we know Ichigo at that time wasn't the most 'stable' in mindset. Byakuya is imo faster than Gin and his sword. And Ichigo was able to block his bankai with his own, something Byakuya should be able to replicate. And I dont see how he couldn't react with a kido barrier like danku, which he used to block Amore vs. Zommari. The only person Gin could eliminate without much trouble is Matsumoto, and that may even be trouble. No shinigami is that slow to not be able to react.

With no knowledge, and the characters fighting to win by any means, that puts anyone in the opposing team in the path of death from Gin's initial bankai strike. Ichigo himself admits that if Gin pointed the tip at him, he's done for
However, Gin was very roundabout with it, showing it off even before attacking Ichigo, giving Ichigo a chance to prepare himself. Not to mention that Gin never truly tried to kill Ichigo
If he starts off with a straightforward attack on any of his opponents, I honestly don't see whoever he targets first doing anything about it, even if it's Byakuya. Depending on how Utsusemi works, it may be able to save him, but I have my doubts there
If Gin starts off targeting someone like Hachigen, while he'd very likely kill him it'll give Byakuya knowledge on the ability and he'd be more prepared for it. Though I really don't see why Gin would open targeting anyone but Byakuya
I'm going with Team 10
Team 5 wins! Gin won't do anything against Rangiku, or allow anyone else to kill her.
