i've always wondered why ichigo lost all he learned Dangai
I mean he was perfectly good with sensing reiatsu before hand and then he had to relearn in the fullbring arc
Because he lost every little bit of his spiritual powers due to FGT.
As for why ichigo could not sense power, it is not because he forgot or anything of the sort. He simply lost the ability to sense power altogether when he lost his power. He couldn't even see souls....
Random thought...Does Byakuya need Senbonzakura(Kageyoshi) to fight? Or can he manage?
We still dont know what Kido can do against the Quincy..He has powerful binding and defensive spells, he just needs a big offensive spell and he has a full deck. We still have several 90's level Hados that need to be revealed.
Recall too that As nodt did not rely on his own power to defeat Byakuya, but Byakuya's own stolen power. That begs the question...did he do that because he still deemed Byakuya too dangerous even without bankai, or was he just being callous and trying to humiliate him? Maybe some of each?
In the first battle, the captains lost because they had no idea how to fight the quincies. They will have some information on them this time, and hopefully, they will also have a counter for the medallions. I think Byakuya may not need the counter. The fact that As Nodt taunted him by saying that no one could beat a bankai with their shikai might just tick him off enough to be the first to do that. Oh, I think I would pass out cold to see that!
I think that by the time they fight vandenreich again they will have already solved the bankai issue. Hypothetically mayuri and urahara are working on a solution to the problem and so far they seem to have had at least 4 days to work out something. If ichigo is to regain his resolve and powers before the next war then perhaps they have even a couple more days to boot. Taking this in consideration, I don't think byakuya will have to defeat ass nodt without bankai but rather he will have to survive against his bankai at least until he can can take it back with whatever mayuri and urahara come up with.
Question about dual asauchi. If possible, let's say wind and fire asauchi manifestation joins with a shinigami for a double blade bankai combo. Could it be like kekkei genkai? I know bleach is not element restricted but if an example like I pointed out happens, do you think the sum can be greater then it's parts?
Well, one of the main issues here is that we don't have a few details as to what the relationship between asauchi and zampakuto is. The asauchi are creatures made by nimaiya apparently however zampakuto spirits themselves as of now could either be transformed asauchi or something within the shinigami or perhaps somehow both.
Anyways, the consideration we have to make is just how a shinigami could get 2 asauchi and end up with two entirely different abilities. An asauchi is made into a zampakuto when it takes the essence of the shinigami's soul. Why would a shinigami get two entirely different zampakuto if the essense of the soul that shaped each zampakuto was the same? For a shinigami to get 2 zampakuto with 2 different abilities he would need 2 different essences of his soul. Or at least have two different things of what makes a zampakuto so to speak. I don't think a shinigami can have two sources of power so to speak.
Well, maybe you don't need two asauchis for that as long as the soul of the Shinigami reflects it so. We have seen dual blades before, so the idea is not so farfetched.
Well, we have seen double bladed zampakuto but they are still only "1" zampakuto. The scenario suggested implies 2 innately different abilities, 2 different names, 2 different shikais and bankais... I guess there is no rule against a shinigami having 2 different essences of his soul so to speak but even if the scenario was plausible it would be extremely exceptional. How would they even know to give him 2 asauchi?
I wasn't thinking about handing out two. Rather a scenario like ichigos and renjis training and at the end two asauchi decided that they wanted that shinigami.
Just thought I'd share. Possibly Orihime's best moment in the entire series.
