Aizen vs. Shinji
this keeps the others ones nicely aligned Aizen
Aizen Sōsuke, an evil-supergenius megalomaniac and former 5th division captain, is a master of machinations and manipulation. His virtual mastery of all facets of shinigami combat fuels his superiority complex and set him on a quest to become the most supreme being in existence. His zanpakutō, Kyouka Suigetsu, allows him in shikai to manipulate the five senses of any person that has ever seen his initial release. The only method to avoid being trapped in Aizen's illusions is to touch Kyōka Suigetsu's blade before complete hypnosis is activated.

Hirako Shinji is a recruiter and the de facto leader of the Visored, and was previously the captain of the 5th Division in the Gotei 13. Shinji is somewhat comical, adding a bit of levity to situations that are otherwise serious. Shinji's zanpakutō is named Sakanade. The blade releases a scent that inverts and reverses the enemy's visual perception. Shinji claims that it is impossible to comprehend the attack directions, as the more experienced one is, the more one relies on instinct to fight, causing one to inevitably fall prey to Sakanade.

Cast your vote and discuss (logically) why you voted for who you voted for. Have fun, but keep it clean!
Hint: we've already seen this battle in the manga
Aizen has this one in the bag:
Also, Aizen DID NOT lolKS-troll Shinji in the manga; the cut inflicted on Aizen's arm can be seen later on throughout the chapter. We did not see it 10 chapters later because the author simply neglected it.

Unfortunately there isn't much to say here - Shinji is overpowered and outhaxed, and I would guess his release isn't any quicker than Aizen's, so he doesn't have what is necessary to gain the upper hand here.
Looking forward to Shinji vs Shunsui (or Yama - ha) though, should incite some good arguments
I think that one would come down to who uses their shikai on who first. While Aizen has the advantage of having a clearly superior hypnosis ability, Shinji's is easier for him to use on his opponents, and once Aizen is in the inverted world he may have a hard time getting Shinji to watch his release. Moreover, Shinji does not trust Aizen so he'll be naturally suspicious of Aizen telling him to look at his zanpakutou.
I voted for Kisuke over Aizen, and I consider Shinji around Kisuke's level (maybe lil' bit higher) so Shinji for me. Definitely more on this later.
Aizen, zero question. Lack of knowledge does work for both sides here, but Aizen's takes less time and is overall superior in every department. He actually managed to counter the thing too, though that was a crock of stupid let me tell you.
If I was fighting someone without previous knowledge about their abilities, I'd actually focus extra hard on their zanpaktou, trying to figure it out as soon as possible. Averting your eyes to what would normally be a physical attack or at least one you can see seems like a bad battle tactic.
As such I don't see Aizen having too much trouble setting up the release against Shinji.
Once it comes down to it, both combatants have their shikai's on, but Aizen's is just far more hax comparatively.
No call Aizen stupid! He very smart, very smart! He do things no one does! very smart, controlled everything and does now also! I voted Aizen! AIZEN RULE ALL!
Poor shinji....he already had to push his way past Ichigo....but now he gets 1 of the two superpowers in this tournament (other ofc being yama).....Aizen wins, unless shinji can somehow get his shikai off before Aizen uses KS
Even moreover, their fight never finished; let's say Aizen did magically become adjusted to fighting with everything backwards in 10 goddamn seconds and was still quicker than Shinji. Hello, mask? Hello, the fact that he can start switching up which directions he has reversed? So the next time Aizen comes in expecting everything backwards it turns out only left/right is and he gets cut. etc. etc.
Yeah, Aizen's not beating Shinji sealed that's for damn sure. Shikai is a bloody given; he beats everyone with his shikai.

So I think Shinji could probably take Aizen sealed, but doesn't stand a chance vs KS.
