it seems you are the leading Barragan supporter and i am the leading Soi Fon suppoerter.
we all know who i picked.
I am mixed; had it not been for Soifon's Shikai having the ability to kill in two strikes, as well as an unrevealed Bankai, I would say Barragan would be the definite winner.
I'm going to have to go with Soi Fon here. Her Bankai has been hidden just as long as Shunsui', Ukitake's, Unohana's, and Yama's. It has to be beastly. Not to mention she still hasn't used shunko yet, which i think will allow her to fight with a broken arm.
Evil Death Breath added.
Right Now If SoiFon Dont Say Those Beautiful Words BANKAI
She Will Be Roosted By This Ghost Rider Wannabe
espada = pathetic pieces of crap when faced with captains (based on Syzzael, Zommari, Nnoitora and AA who was killed by Rukia (not even captain or VC))
soi fon was rigged to win this battle as soon as she looked at Barragan!
Okay... I won't spoil anyone here...
But if Soi Fong somehow manage to beat Barragan...
In all logic, she should lose... but since no Shinigami are dying in this manga, she will somehow win... very curious how she will do that though...
The best chance the Kingdom of Soi-Yin-Fong has at staving off the invasion of Barragania led by the Tyrant of Skulls is to petition for help from the country Yamamatan.
It would be ridiculous for any of the top 3 espada's to lose in these current fights. The only captain who could possibly compete with these three would be old man Yamamoto. Even though this is a WSJ, having Hitsugaya defeat the third strongest espada is pure fantasy. For reason's we all know but are too stubborn to admit. As for Soi Fon, her bankai would have to not only perfectly counter Barragan's aging power attacks but also heal her already damaged body. I just don't see this happening especially with so many possible surprise reinforcements waiting to be written into the story.
Not really....he has every right to doubt the Espada...as 6 of them is dead/injured...while....how many of Shinigami is injured/dead?...the only death we see is Rukia (close to dying and Ichigo...revival of the dead)...other than that...nothing yet...so Espada is either under performing or weaker than Shinigami...well...I think JT made it so Shinigami stronger than espada...
It's not pure fantasy. Hitsu's one of the most popular characters in the manga, and Halibel was only created for fanservice, so as much as I want Halibel to win, the truth is Hitsu has a very real chance of winning.Quote:
I voted for Barragan. Love Soi Fon, she's one of my favorite characters, but if Barragan can turn her flesh into bones with an exhale than she's screwed. Sure, she's still got Bankai and Shunko, so I don't know for sure, but I voted with the current situation in mind. If things stay the way they are all Barragan has to do is keep breathing and he'll win.
Just the concept of someone beating someone by just standing and breathing is hilarious.
On the other hand, some translated the ability as "death breath", others as "aura of death" or such. I wonder which one is correct. Usually I'd imagine an aura as being like a symmetric field around the one emitting it, but this one seems to move more like fog/smoke/stuff.
Death breath is just like, overpowered from all the other abilities we have seen so far (save for Aizen's absolute hypnosis). Think about it, ice dragons, thousands of tiny pink blades, poisonous beasts/stingers, all useless in the face of death breath. Plus, the fact that once death breath touches one part of your body, it will deteriorate the rest connected to it (read, you must amputate that part of the body like Soifon did), is just incredible. I wonder how anybody will possibly get through to Barragan right now. Soifon just has no chance though unless her bankai is long range (unlikely, since her fighting style is close combat). She can't do her two hit KO since death breath would just destroy her, same with any hand to hand or shunko, she's fucked. A guy that can surround himself in basically a very corrosive cloud (corrosive meaning destroying skin and muscle tissue) is the the perfect counter to a close quarters fighter.
