I was rereading some chapters and I discovered something strange.
Ok, so we know Aizen was kept in MUKEN as a prisoner....scan below:
Well, I was reading Chapter 523 and it turns out that Kenpachi and Unohana had their death match in MUKEN also.....scan below:
I mean, this is after Aizen is defeated so he must've been down there. Shunsui said Aizen was jailed for two years.
Unohana and Zaraki were both Kenpachi's so they were the strongest. Why would they have their huge deathmatch in the same place that Aizen was jailed?
And my last questions, how come they couldn't feel Aizen's reiatsu? How come Aizen never felt their reiatsu?
Was this so kind of plothole? Maybe kubo forgot that he already used Muken before he decided that this is where he was going to put Aizen?
Just thought this would be interesting to discuss. Thank you.
It says it stretches for infinity... so I guess they were only at different places inside of it.
Just as eefrit already said, Aizen was at the lowest level while the Kenpachi stand-off happened somewhere else in muken. Its also pretty vast so it can comfortably accommodate both of them (kenpachis and aizen) without them ever meeting.
As for reiatsu, I dunno if the seals inhibited Aizen's ability to sense reiatsu, but I doubt they did, so its possible he actually sensed their reiatsu during their fight (it seems he was aware of what happened up with the Quincy vs Shinigami battles). On the other hand, the kenpachi's couldn't have sensed Aizen's because he retained his transcendental reiatsu. Its also possible the seals prevented that and well, they were too engrossed in their fight to bother about anything else.
Aizen couldn't possibly emit reiatsu himself, because he was sealed. Even if he did, I think it was an infinitely small amount that nobody would normally notice without searching for the traces of it.
I don't know. Kubo never hits me as someone who would actually "forget". He usually stretches out his story in a way that isn't even that convenient for him at times, but he is more like "Remember what I told you BC 240? I bring that back up now". He makes readers wait, and has no problem with that. Bleach has been somewhat consistent as a story, considering for how long it has gone on, even when the quality of the story dipped here and there.
For this specific instance, it is less likely to be a case of overlooking, since it's not from an ancient time back in the past, but from a very recent chapter itself.
In their crazed state, they'd probably try to kill him or just completely ignore him instead. Asides that, they don't have the keys to his seal and there's a limit to how far they go in aizen's level. I don't think they can actually go into the space he was held, the limit is the entrance it seems.
Central 46 simply assumes that the seals are unbreakable by sheer force, I'm guessing. Not much else that I can think of that makes sense.
To me this implies that they must be in the same area of Muken, considering that the rest of Muken should be total darkness. So it would seem that kubo set Aizen in the same place where zaraki had his fight: the edge of the light before the total darkness of Muken. So the problem would be, did kubo draw it incorrectly? Did he forget that there was a fight in that area before he set up Aizen in that area? Or are there two opposite doors allowing entrance to Muken that have access to light and then the whole middle area of Muken is pure darkness? Idk
Well its still pretty different. Aizen's area is completely black. You literally can't see into it. Even when he emerges, it looks as though the black is actually tangible and is clinging to him.
Zaraki and unohana's area isn't nearly that dark. I doubt they were even on level 8 with aizen. They were probably on level 6/7. I don't think kubo forgot or made a mistake either. Muken is pretty vast (almost endless I think) and he had already established that there were 8 levels (with the 8th being last), so it makes sense that there wouldn't be any problems regarding that and he would expect we would know its somewhere else in Muken that the kenpachis fought.

I think they keys to the gates of Muken and the keys to Aizen's seals are indeed different, so I don't think zaraki could've freed Aizen. I wonder tho if Aizen were in the same place, could he have manipulated zaraki/unohana? Kinda how he manipulated Juhabach's sense of time when he visited Aizen before destroying SS.
