Hello folks, been a while but i still have this feeling that Aizen has left SS after the 1st Attack and subsequently went on to the Human world to give passes to Ichigo's friends in the form of Shunsui. Okay i know most of you will say "Crack pot theory" "never gunna happen" but at least hear me out.
So my views on Shunsui leaving SS at any point in time is illogical, he just became CC for starters he also had to prepare SS for another upcoming invasion, he had little to no time to leave SS for any amount of time. And Why give humans he's never met passes to SS for the soul reason of seeing Ichigo, the timing for this seems WAAAAAY off, i mean why give humans passes while there's still an immediate threat from the Quincy.
Then if we look at what Aizen wants, which is no doubt revenge on Ichigo for stopping his master plan it fits, i mean get ichigos friends in SS while the war is going on then use them as bait to get Ichigo to let his guard down and BAM Aizen's suckered him into a world of hurt.
Theres no two ways about it Aizen has evolved he is not what he once was and possibly could have a whole new motive... But time will tell.
What are your thoughts on the events that have happened concering 'Shunsui and the Human's' ?
Well, do we have any reason to believe those kids were under the influence of KS? Aizen never actually released his sword in front of them so how exactly would he fool them into thinking he is syunsui? I agree in that his approach to things was not entirely logical however its not like it took him ages. He just spent a couple of hours presumably tracking down ichigo's friends and family...
I think from what JB has said upon leaving Aizen about him losing perception of time suggests maybe Aizen doesnt need his sword anymore, isnt there a possibility that Aizen is actually one with his sword with complete control. That's just speculation of course XD
Honestly, Shunsui probably didn't even have to track down Ichigo's friends, considering they were tracking him for such a long time.
I think Shunsui underestimated the time and place the Quincies would've attacked Soul Society.
He'd planned on having Ichigo visit his friends before fighting, and he clearly doesn't have the time to do that.
No one would guessed (besides Mayuri, apparently) about the shadows.
I agree with kkck. When did Aizen ever get the chance to KS Ichigo's friends?
Well Aizen did something to Yhwach that seemed like KS, so maybe he doesn't have to do the release thing anymore

What else could Aizen have done against Bach while imprisoned? I honestly can't think of anything
I've mentioned this in the chapter discussion, put I'll also post it here...
I believe that what Aizen did to Yhwach isn't actually something that was granted by the Hougyoko; he's most likely had this ability all along. We've previously seen instances where a Shinigami's reiatsu itself manifests their abilities to some extent; Yama-Jii's reiatsu could burn things, Hitsugaya's reiatsu could make his surroundings cold (and in some instances, such as when he released his seal during his fight with Shawlong, could freeze things). It looks like Aizen's reiatsu follows suit, and can alter the perception of those in close proximity (although it should be noted that it wouldn't be anywhere near as potent as his KS). In fact, we may have already seen him using this ability before; he seems to have a certain knack of agitating and influencing his opponents when talking to them, and it could well be his emitted reiatsu that facilitates this.
Of course, this could open up a whole can of worms when it comes to what's happened since Ichigo defeated him; he could have easily influenced the C46 whilst they were imprisoning him (after all, he made them furious just by taunting them). If he could make Juhabach lose track of time, he could have easily influenced a C46 member in such a way that they make mistakes or become forgetful; when dealing with Aizen, such things could result in him breaking loose!!!
Technically, Urahara stopped Aizen, not Ichigo. If Aizen does return, it'll be to stop the Qunicy before continuing his plans. And Kubo still hasn't revealed anything on Aizen's background either.
That was before he evolved beyond a shinigami, now he is completely different possibly in the same realms as the SK in terms of Species. Let's face it guys if the Orb made Aizen evolve then his powers have to, this meaning his reitsu could well have elements of his abilities mixed within them, like how his SP is so think it masks space and time around him change, remember his SP could not be felt by anyone other then FGT Ichigo.
