I changed my mind, shinigami's most cool now goes to Gin: 'Kill' what's more direct than that? It doesn't over do it (which is appreciated by all but somehow feels redundant and unpractical -remember Renji had a long freaking poem before he just said 'Howl'?-) , nor does it has a puny sound to it (you know like howl); Just 'kill', hopefully exactly what it is going to do to Aizen . I appreciate assertiveness.
If i have to chose a favourite it would be definitely Renji's, Howl Zambimaru. When he Maybe its because it was the first one we saw but i just love it. Another one defintely is Hisagi, that one is simply badass. Reap Kazeshini.
On a side note, the awesome youtuber EdenOfTh3East has videos of most of the the Arrancar releases and shikai/bankais shown so far in the anime in HD. In case anyones interested here they are:

Me it's a couple that I found awsome (anime)
Kaien: ''Surge trough the seas and rages trough the skies, Nejibana''
* The way it say it, give me chills
Urahara Kisuke: "Awaken, Benihime"
*the way it say it is quite cool
Hitsugaya: "Souten ni zase HYOURINMARU"
*same has above
cirucci: ''slice them up Golondrina''
* the way she said it it's quite intense filled with rage
"Split and Deviate, Ruriro Kujaku!"
plus, it's release against Coolhorne was preceded by that amazingly badass "Thank You" panel showing Yumi's widened eyes and perfectly strewn hair.
Kurosaki Ichigo - Zangetsu(no Shikari command) - Tensa Zangetsu
** Well, moon cutting heaven sounds really cool to me, and the japanese really can't get off my mind
Urahara Kisuke - Awake, Benihime(to activate Shikai)Cry, Benihime(to attack), Call Out, Benihime(to create a shield) - N/A
** lol, he sounds so casual to his sword like buddy buddy.
Yamamoto Genryuusai(1st Division Captain, General of the Gotei 13) -
Disintegrate all existence,Ryuu Jin Jyatsukka - N/A
** Freaking Genocide
Ichimaru Gin(3rd Division Captain) - Shoot to kill, Shinsou - kamashini no yari, god killing spear
** very direct and practical , really sounds cool, really sounded godly
Kuchiki Byakuya(6th Division Captain) - Scatter, Senbon Zakura - Senbon Zakura Kageyoshi
** who doesn't like sakura
Komamura Saijin(7th Division Captain) - Tenken(command unknown) - Kokujou Tengen Myouou
** sounds good
Hitsugaya Toushirou(10th Division Captain) - Soar in the frozen sky, Hyourinmaru - Daiguren Kyourinmaru
** sounds godly too and I like dragons too.
For me why two favorite releases would have to be Renji's and Ikkaku's mostly because of how they say them. Like if I'm hanging with some of my friends and we start to yell out bleach releases while joking around, those two are always done only because its incredibly funny and epic in the manner by which they say the release commands. Every time Ikkaku says "Hōzukimaruuuuuuuuuuuu!!!" I get so happy inside.
I believe Hitsugaya's command is ''Reign over the frosted Heavens, Hyorinmaru!'' in the translation.
That, and yamamoto's shikai would be the two to make you **** brix if you had to stare them down lol. Even the commands are intimidating.
my favorites are
Gin's: he looks cool when he says "ikorose" then smiles
And Kurotsuchi when he says "konjiki Ashisogi jizo" he sounds like a killer maniac
Let's see, Ukitake and Shunsui both have long and complicated release commands which sound awesome. Yama-jii's is just badass too. Also like Gin's commands (shoot to kill, die, etc.) and just the translated name of his bankai: god killing spear.
Renji's hands down. I remember the earlier scans of Bleach mislabeled Renji's release command as Scream, and it was so badass when he used it for the first time that it became my favorite Shikai for a long time (still is, really). I'm pretty sure it's Roar, but either way his release commands are awesome.
