We all know Kubo wants the destruction of soul society but this is no way to go on about. The captains look dumb after this, maybe he didn't think this through.
And what is Byakuya saying that they weren't warned? They were told they only had 5 days.
its kinda hilarious when ichigo is the least reckless person fighting the bad guys

I don't think they can use the Bankai they stolen... Even if i can steal a rocket it does not mean i can use it... Also Kubo is probably smart enough to not give us some other people using the same Bankai we got to see for 496 chapters? Neah they probably just steal it and keep it but not use it. Perhaps use them but in a diferent form like using the reiatsu they provide or upgrade there main attack with that Bankai somehow.... Just trowing around the same moves that we already know would mean this is a VERY good thing this manga ends...
byakuya: a bankai that can cover large area
hitsugaya: creates, leaves substance behind
komamura: generates a giant body with direct attack
soi fon: one shot fast explosive attack
i think that mayuri specifically chose these captains to observe how quincies steal bankais of different structures. before assigning the orders to the 4 captains he infected them with those bacteria to observe the process.
So it has actually come to this, they can actually steal the bankai. Will we be seeing some bankai vs bankai moves?
To what extent is it stolen?
Can they recover it?
So four captains lost their bankai and it was quick. It seems there was no getting around this trap. They would not be able to use their bankai anyway, so I don't think it's a big strategical error, especially considering that other stronger captains still have their bankai. There's a point in four captains taking the risk rather than one, four people have better chances of figuring out how bankai stealing method works, one captain may notice a detail which others miss. I don't think their shikai are gone too, wasn't Sasakibe's zanpakuto in shikai form in the first quincy attack?
If this is Kubo's idea, great! It's four times the chance to find out what they are actually doing. Those four may be strong or geniuses, but they aren't senior captains, and wasting a VC on this wouldn't be helpful too, as they captains would have to fight and get their bankai stolen too anyway.
If it's just Kubo showing off four bankai[we already knew they posses] on two pages, it would be a waste of panels and the typical show off idiocy that's going on in Bleach for some time now. He already used one chapter to show us that they are capable of stealing, I don't know why he would use a whole chapter for this again.
Someone will interfere with the first sternritter we see, as Yuki and Shino are there, it wouldn't make sense plotwise to just kill them off after their introduction at the beginning of the arc.

I can't wait for Kenpachi to enter the fight.
Unless the Quincy know that he hasn't achieved BanKai yet they're going to sh*t bricks when he starts anihilating them without even Shikai.
I raised this question few posts back. If zanpktou itself is stolen, it will be a huge disadvantage for the SS. As Byakuya said, these opponents may not be defeated without bankai, I wonder what will they do.Quote:
They should. One of the method comes to mind is to break the device / medallion they used to capture the bankai. There could be other methods to but we will have to wait for some more information.Quote:
Plus they obviously thought they can gain it back, i.e. defeat the quincy before he gets to seal it away (Sui Feng's comment) if they have a co-fighter who could distract the quincy or assist in battle, since Sasakibe was alone and only by himself back then.
It's not a waste of space, it is an easily comprehensible war strategy to confirm a threat and observe its extent.
And going bankai without filling at least half of a page wouldn't be Bleach. It's aways been like that, and will always be. This is not One Piece with 15 panel on each page.

guess kenpachi is there only hope. but this was to reckless by the captains i think they may have some sort of a plan unless kubo wanted to get over the stealing of their bankais fast
