Kira had the crap beat out of him in FKT by aizen though. He could not have moved on on his own IMO. Even if matsumoto had healing kido it would still take her some serious time to heal wounds as serious as gin had. Hanatarou was in huevo mundo and was cut down by rukia/zomari. It is an unlikely scenario. A new character would be too random but I guess it is within the realm of possibilities knowing kubo. Even then, matsumoto would not have talked about gin as if he had died if that was the case though.
Trust me, we didn't see the body nor really see him actually 'die' so to speak, so calling him dead yet is supremely premature. I don't even like the dude and even I know that that was entirely too open to call a fairly popular character dead yet. Don't be surprised if he shows up later, I certainly won't be. Kubo could make up some BS to explain it, unlikely as it is.
Totally agree with you.I'm also not a big fan of Gin,but as long as there is no real proof that he's dead,he's considered alive(just like the law with presumption of innocence).He could show up later,as a potential ally.
I bet the kid is dead; hoping he is too. Tbf I'm not even sure how him coming back would do good to the plot so far. He's done what he could and failed. Gin returning wouldn't help with the plot or enhance it, for we all we know the only thing that'd benfit fro his return would be Rangiku.
Though, what amuses me is the fact that Kubo didn't give us an actual notion tha Gin had died, as in literally. Nice one Kubo, good way to troll us.
He's probably dead.
Everything points at the direction that he's dead.
He even suggests that he's dying here.
Rangiku also hints that he's dead or atleast gone
Eitherway, Gin being alive is also possible....
Gin should be dead. And no zombies from you Tite!XD
Kubo did consider that Gin is dead
Everyone seems to forget about Orihime, if she had time to heal Harribel, Apache, Mila-Rose, Sun-Sun, who knows who else, why wouldn't she have time to heal Gin. Orihime isn't bound to soul society like Unohana. When FKT and the real KT merged back together, all occupents ended up in relativly the same place I do believe.
Gin is dead IMO but if he still is alive out there somewhere i doubt he'll play any role in plot going forward because even though he was like a "double agent"(he tried to stop Aizen in the end and failed horribly lol) Soul Society..more specifically Central 46 isn't going to stretch out warm arms to a former captain who aided Aizen sama who is now one of SS most infamous convicted criminals, Gin is an accomplice to a man who wanted to overthrow the Spirit King..that can't be forgiven...most people can agree on that.
I think Gin is dead. The thing is even if he would have been healed SS wouldn't let him be free and do what he wants as no matter what his intentions were he was a criminal. Thus I would say if he would have been healed he would have been in the trial near Aizen, but he wasn't, so we should presume that he is dead, unless we will be shown otherwise.
Kubo didn't let Gin be seen dead, and preferred to be someone who just disappeared because he wanted to build up some hope for those who liked the character. But still, I remember Rangiku crying after the whole Aizen ordeal and assumed he did die.
I think he is dead. I could see him surviving if he had/knew something important for later arcs. But I think as Kubo did what he did and killed him off, it would be fail to bring him back. Even with him dead there's few people who actually died. People would complain. Plus his end was really touching, he passed his will onto Ichigo basically, and it has development for Rangiku, it should strenghten her even more.
But I wouldn't mind thinking that he lives somewhere in the world >.<
I think he is dead, but if he is brought back, then Tousen needs to come back to because both of them got shafted in the end. Both pretty much redeemed themselves in the end and they die while Aizen, who orchestrated everything, lives to most likely save the day in the future.
Old thread but who cares!
I want Gin to be alive. True it would not add anything to the plot since his role is essentially done, but i believe Kubo could make him useful!
And who cares about plot enhancement? I don't. If there is a microscopic chance to bring back an ultra-cool character, you go for it. That's simple!
Make him come back as a hero.
Make him come back as a ghost, some sort of hollow, other kind of spiritual being, etc., etc.
Just bring him back Kubo!
