yes absolutely and with evidence, first of all, yesterday I watched the episode 52-53 for the 2nd time, the most important parts in this episode is when they brought rukia to exute her, after that, Gin appeared!
the most important thing is, what said rukia.
Rukia: "I always hated this man, slightly before i entered the gotei 13,
nii-sama became the captain of the 6th devision. Around that time
the man who became the captain of the third division, always started
to talk to nii-sama when i was with him to anyone else it probably just
looked like official talk between two captains.there wasn't much to the
conversation but i couldn't feel that way. i remember the first time
seeing him my whole body started to sweat, his fingertips ...his
mouth... the slight movement of his eyes all of it felt like the slithering tongue of a snake touching my throat even though he was talking
to nii-sama, i hated this man it felt like he slowly entered deep inside
me, like a disease, that is kind of fear he made me feel. i never had a
reason it's just that everything inside me resisted this man, that's
never changed even after talking to him several times and nothing is
After that, Gin kept his mental control over her.
well, many questions we can ask:
Brief: always talk to byakuya when she was with him , her whole body started to sweat,she felt like the slithering tongue of a snake touching her throat (so even byakuya did not pay attention) she felt like he entered deep inside her so if he realy did, certainly he know about the hogyoku!!!
we all know that after she stayed in the real world for too long, Aizen sought that the hogyoku is inside rukia. too slow compared to Gin, right?!
Gin knows about the hogyoku inside rukia before Aizen for so long!!! so, who manipulate who ?
look at this picture
toussen the bottom
Aizen the middle
and who is on the top of the bulding ??

thought i would reply to this one before someone else was extra mean...
a) the hogyouku was put in rukia when she went to the real world via the gigai urahara supplied to her. the incidents she refers to in your quote happened before that. aizen is the one who had central 46 killed and rukia recalled back to SS. so, no, Gin didn't 'know' about rukia before aizen.
b. the description rukia gives is most probably a plot device by kubo (take the espada description by fraccions in the arrancar arc as an example). we were supposed to think gin was the big bad mastermind for the longest time. that's what made an uber badass like aizen coming along all the more surprising. also, one might argue it takes more strenght/brains to maintain the kind of charade aizen did as a captain than it does for someone to creep a person out like gin did...
hint about the evil nature of Gin.

Slightly off-topic reply:
That scene is one of my favorites in the whole series. Her scream and Gin's evil glare brought all together so nicely~
urahara developed a spirit child that could not increase it's energy he used that to make a gigai that is impossible to lock on to and then left soul society, this gigai make the shinigami split it's spirit energy as a result the shinigami inside of that gigai will never recover it's spirit energy."
rukia gave a part from her shinigami power to ichigo after that she become weaker and weaker and couldn't get her spiritual energiy to normal witch is abnormal, and yes , the reason is that gigai given by urahara maybe after he left soul society.
so explain to me how coul she loses her spirit energy before urahara came and sai to her " ohh ,it seems like you have some difficulty should i lend you a gigai?" how she could posibly loses her spiritual energy before he even give her "the gigai"?
so my friend that means rukia had the hougyoku from the begining and there is a big posibility that she may gave him the power of hogyouku itself.
hint : ichigi hollows with horns
we can't be certain because we don't know the ability of Gin yet !!!

In regards to your first point it's Rukia talking about how she always thought Gin was creepy (Kubo has even stated he designed him to be such). When you are around someone like this it's not uncommon to feel unsettled by their presence. This is what that quote was referring to as she felt that way before she had the hogyoku (sp?) inside her being.
In regards to your point regarding the picture of Tosen, Aizen and Gin this is most likely just reflecting their personalities. Tosen was always the most headstrong and the first of the 3 to go into a fight (whether ordered or otherwise) while it shows Aizen presumably taking charge and giving orders so he doesn't have to dirty his own hands. As with the other two, Gin's role is also suitable; preferring to observe a situation from a distance and take advantage of any opportunity that arises.
While I share your distrust of Gin I have to say that besides speculation and Gin's mysterious absence in battle, Kubo has yet to give us any proof to him surpassing Aizen in strength and it will remain so until it's directly said to be otherwise.
I don't know about who is stronger, but I have a very strong feeling that Gin is going to be the main bad guy in the end.
It is very hard to explain, but the way everything is turning out, I have a very strong hunch. Well we'll just have to wait and see.
I dont beleve that Gin is the main bad guy but he is at least as strong as Yama.
but instead of recovering she started to become more like a humain! anyway aizen said that urahara put a barrier around the hougyoku and bury it with another soul to hide it at that time the place he choses to hide it was in rukia. so the hogyoku were inside her , her soul.
I think Gin maybe a Master and Aizen is strategist of Gin
What bugs me is that Gin started following Aizen and not the other way around.
But I like to think that Gin is the real badguy.
I believe so too. Gin is just such an unpredictable and contradictory (wakizashi made for ranged attacks?, always has his eyes closed yet his shikai relies so much on his aim?) character.
He's also about the only character that doesn't seem uneasy with Aizen at all.
I think he's gonna play a major role at least...may it be as big villain or as undercover good guy (Rangiku?).
