You call them the wrong name? They have different powers.
If Zanpakuto doesn't acknowledge you? It doesn't let you use its full power.
Zaraki didn't know his swords name and, to make this worse, HE didn't bother acknowledging the sword. I wouldn't be surprised if the skulls that we've seen were just illustrations of his sword's frustrations seeping out.
But, is it just me or did anyone else feel like "That's great" was Zaraki's Zanpaktuo Release?
"That's Great, Nozarashi!"
Nice, but short, chapter.
Well, so gremmy can create himself so as to double his powers? It is an interesting trick for someone that has supposedly never been challenged before. Why would he feel the need to imagine that?
Anyways, what is up with the stern riter? Quite a few of them are actually rather bent on the whole "destroying sereitei" thing. Didn't they just switch their bases? Its not just destroying sereitei, what they are doing is destroying their home... I wonder if there is more to the whole thing though. Maybe something favorable to the quincy but unfavorable to shinigami will happen if they destroy sereitei?
And we finally learn kenpachi's shikai.... Damn, that took a while lol. It is kinda fitting that it will be used against a meteor. It seems like it should do more than cutting though, if he splits the meteor in two he is not really surviving either. He needs to obliterate the meteor. I guess next chapter we get gremmy's volstandig too, it should actually be special IMO. Volstandig, which allows him dominion over reishi, and his imagination, which allows him to conjure anything... Its an excellent combination in many ways.
Saw this in another thread
Lol @ people thinking this battle is equal. Like I said last time its equal but for the wrong reasons. Its just a charade. Thats dragging out. People saying the eyepatch was coming off since last week...no. Ken isn't even really trying (yet) and what concerns me is that Gremmy said he's now using his strongest power. Does that mean he has no Vollstandig? I now interpret Lee to be another version of himself as well but old. I'm guessing that the body double at least has no Vollstandig but it would be silly if original Gremmy didn't have one. Then again I suppose him having one would be redundant since he can do "anything" already. Heck he could just imagine he had one even if he didn't so whatever.
...He's gonna get stomped next week and that meteor will be smashed to little pieces. Thank goodness this ridiculous fight will soon be over. I expected a lot better for Ken's comeback but oh well.
Gremmy is, indeed, too weak for Zaraki. His most powerful technique is to only double himself? That is all his imagination can offer?
And hello, Nozarashi!!!
Thinking things through, I must say that for a child, the kid thinks awfully lot like a adult...
Wait... who said that Gremmy even is a kid to begin with?
Isn´t it possible that he is in fact just a short adult man that looks like a kid because he imagines it?
Think about it, if you had reality warping powers, wouldn´t you use them to hide your true face if you were really ashamed about yourself?
And Lee was even shorter than Gremmy was, meaning that he doesn´t get any taller than this... he will in fact shrink when he gets older.
Maybe he is just a guy with Lee´s freaky glasses hidden away beneath a illusion?
I wonder if we will get a chance to see his true form in the end.
On a side note... Gremmy has been locked up until now, isolation cell, without contact to anyone...
How good would your imagination be if you sat in a windowless jail cell during your whole life without access to books or anything?
Maybe that can explain why his mind seems so limited? He has been creatively crippled by the other Stern Rittner and his isolation...
That could explain it... It´s like a gun being stored without maintenance to either gun or ammo... it just shoot duds and eventually break after a few good first shots.
Maybe that explains how he can be so dull with his "Visionary..."
He has the "Prisoner´s Block"...
He just can´t take the initiative and needs others to tell him what to do as a side-effect from the countless years of imprisonment...
Proof: He didn´t start enjoying the fight until Kenpachi told him to. After that, he wwant "Quinpachi" and unloaded at Kenpachi.
Proof: He was about to kill himself with his ability without realizing. Kenpachi pointed it out to him and he followed orders.
Proof: He hasn´t done anything on his own really without anyone else telling or pointing him in the right direction.
He might be free from his cage but in his mind, he is still a prisoner... and that is showing in this fight.
Killing him will be a mercy for the poor kid.

Chapter bored me to tears. Meteor? Lmfao...taking tips from Naruto? Why not just blow the whole place up or imagine everyone dead........
So next week Kenpachi's Shikai
The week after that Vollständig
And then in the third week Zaraki hopefully kills Grammy

Maybe Zaraki has BanKai aswell (and I'm not a fan of that thought at all).
Don't get me wrong, the faster this fight ends the better for me, but I have a bad feeling that "the strongest Sternritter" (makes me chuckle every time I hear that) will drag this one out a little longer.
