Simple thread; just say who has more chances, in your opinion, to going down in this war (you can say why if you want). Can be captains, vice-captains or "helpers" (Urahara, Hiyori, etc.)
These are my choices (for now):
- Yamamoto (He will lose to VR leader, putting SS in a headless chaos. Who's gonna be his succesor?)
- Kenpachi (Shock! He will die in his element, but not before dragging down two or three quincies, and a good flashback too?)
- Maybe some vizards
What are your choices?

It would be pretty bad if Ukitake and Kyouraku go down here, they're still far to mysterious and have to explain their relationship to Isshin somehow. We also get to know more about Kyouraku, since that's what Kubo promised in his R&R interviews.
I don't see Kenpachi and Ikkaku dying, and I hell hope Uki and Kyo stay alive and and become the "elders" giving wisdom to the younger generation after CC dies.
Or maybe Ukitake, as we're not sure whether his illness can be, ever, cured. If he dies, Kyoraku going berserk doesn't sound too bad...
But Uki T__T
I think there's a fair chance that Rose dies in the current battle. There is the "revenge factor" though...
I did not select any option, because if Kubo will actually finally procure the set of balls needed to kill a few characters, I doubt it will be more than five. Seems like too big of a sudden jump. I'm talking about just this battle though. More people might die later on. And in my book, Kenpachi is pretty much the only guaranteed survival besides plotkai characters.
I don't want anyone to die. Not like I'm some kind of crazy pacifist but I think it's much more interesting when you don't want someone to die, but they do for the plot's sake. So, I'll go with "nobody will die".
It seems that someone will.
I believe killing off many characters isn't a good idea. They're the main force that drives the plot, without so many of them the manga would be bland and suffer in the long run. Sasakibe has already died and Kira's death is a strong possibility, I guess Komamura may not survive this war too, I see it less likely that we'll get more than that. Yamamoto is a potential candidate but I doubt Kubo would end him without showing us his bankai.
The only soul reaper that I would like to die is Aizen. I dislike him with a passion because of all the harm he did. First he screwed up the vizords and Kisuke's life, then toushiro and hinamori, now Ichigo and his friends.
1. Captain Yamamoto
2. Yourichi or Kisuke
3. Byakuya Kuchiki
11 Ryuken Ishida
12. Isshin Kurosaki
15 the rest of Xcution
Urahara, Yoruichi, Ryuuken and Isshin, I don't see... it's only that "hunch" or "intuition" or something, but it would feel.. well, not Bleach XD
I wonder whether we'll see some Vizards going down, there's many of them and not all can become important XD
I put Kenpachi on my list, but with the latest events I'm seriously wondering if this guy is "deadable" at all
Well, with Gin, Ulquiorra and now most likely Byakuya gone, I don't want any more death. I've had enough of my favourite characters going down!
Ukitake and Kyoraku shouldn't be dead. They're my candidates ( with the most likely one being Ukitake ) to replace Captain Commander.
My dying list includes:
Komamura ( Can't see him living a purpose with Captain Commander gone )
Kenpachi ( Maybe not initially, but later on )
Several VCs ( Rangiku, Hinamori who has been due a death for several years from now )
And how come will the others survive with so many powerful people falling?
I think going from "no death" to "loadsa gratuitous death" is pretty lame story-telling; if for the entire story we were watching people get killed left, right and centre ten loads more deaths in this arc would be expected. And somehow I just can't believe that Kubo's gonna start now, having killed off no one but a few Arrancar in the entire story (but I may well just be in denial :P) so I'm not going to vote. I am going to make a list of people I hope die;
-Yamamoto: because we already got told he dies against Aizen; Kubo lied to us and I want my revenge! Die, old man!
-Kira: somehow it would be very satisfying if we were already dead; the number of times Kubo's dropped someone's Reiatsu to nil or done huge amounts of damage to them and everyone's been worried but then they've turned out to be fine....
-Hinamoro: violently and quickly. Whilst she screams "Oh my God, I have wasted my life! Why did I spend it being so weak?! I regret everything, and anyone who sees me as a role model and voted for me in the character polls (the Japanese public) should rethink their values system!!"
-Kuchiki Byakuya: for never cracking a smile and being boring.
-Hitsugaya: same reason.
-Aizen: off-screen, but definitely killed. Not escaped or disappeared, killed by decapitation. But off-screen, because I don't want to see his face; let Kubo tell us about it in a character book.
-those two Shinigami Ichigo met at the start of the arc: quickly and with a
minimal amount ofzero talking.
-that Shinigami we met a few chapters ago that looked just like a blonde Aizen: as above.
Okay, so maybe I wouldn't mind some gratuitous violence.
