Now this is weird, Soi fon apparently hates using her bankai as she previously stated during her fight with barangan, and now she went bankai first?! You gotta be kidding me...
As for the survival chances of the captains:
Hitsugaya and Byakuya won't die... they are fan favourites. And I can't think of any mainstream-shounen-manga with a female character(except villains) dying in battle... so I guess Soi Fon is rather safe too.
Maybe Komamura will bite the dust... the plot seems pretty much done with his character since Tousens death.
Where are the other Vizard right now? Their help could be pretty handy at the moment.
After the first battle is over, Urahara should hollify all the surviving Captains and VC so they can power up without relying on bankai.
Seeing Shunsui and Ukitake donning their masks would be neat fanservice.
Of course Kenpachi doesn't need any of this
I like how Kubo is not showing him right now. I bet he'll get a badass entrance when the battle already seems lost.

could've sworn, Sasakibe warned them about this. And yet, they still try to use "Bankai" anyway.
it's all skill from here on out, if they truly wish to defeat the "Quincy / Vandenreich".
p.s., Ichigo's bankai may not disappear at all, because he's "half human". anyone else think this is the probable explanation?.

As I said, his logic wasn't solid at all, it was based on a lot of misconceptions about the Quincies new ability regarding Bankai... They've got no infos about the Quincies to begin with, the fact that Mayuri wasn't aware of the old fashioned ultimate form suggest how their infos about them is lacking, and now, with their whole new power up, they're facing an unknown enemy. They didn't know exactly what happened with Sasakibe to begin with, and yet they decided to use their trump card in such a way (They could've done it way more carefully, like sacrificing one captain's bankai or Renji/Ikkaku and Mayuri observing the process, not 4 captains at the same time). Also if the Sternritter's abilities are like the one Kirge displayed on a stronger scale, they're doomed. Really doomed.

Scenario 1: Neither captain nor vice captain bankai
Both will likely die because shikai isn't strong enough unless you're someone like Yama or Kenpachi or someone with really good kido.
Scenario 2: non captain bankais and Captain goes shikai
It's probable that Sternritter will ignore the weaker shinigami's bankai and take it on rather than steal it. There's always the possibility they just steal it and force the capain to use bankai, release the first bankai and steal the captain's. This would put you in...
Scenario 3: Captain bankais.
Captain's bankai is stolen. Non-captain can bankai again. Now, shinigami proceed to fight while figuring out a way to ge the bankai back permanently.
This all assumes the Sternritter can't steal multiple bankais. If they can't, it makes sense they would only bother to steal and keep the stronger bankai.
What's to stop the Quincy's from going into the final form and sucking up all of Kenpachi's reishi after he takes off his eyepatch? Then what?
The main thing I don't like is just how virtually invincible these quincies have been made to seem although I know it's still early. But I mean, Byakuya is the only person thus far to cause any damage to them and really, the damage is relatively light. He removed the floor from one Quincy and gave the other one paper cuts. The battle has been waaaaaaaay too one-sided for too long. It'd be nice to start to see some casualties on the other side as well...or at the very least, some type of limitation to these quincies.

i bet the vizards are going to show up to save the day, at least for some part
i am hoping to see ichigo also show up. hopefully ichigo and his friends can step and help save SS
imo,that seal works just against one bankai,that's why the quincies are facing just a captain. in my opinion,as nodt will be defeated by renji's bankai and thanks to byakuya. they shouldn't expect him to possess bankai.
Stealing mayuri's bankai didn't work out too well for szayel. I'm a bit annoyed at how short this chapter felt. I also don't particularly want to see any of these captains fight. I wanna see the look on the face of whoever's fighting kenpachi when he tells him he has no clue what a bankai is.
