No one seems to be wondering why the sternritter king is still alive. If he's a quincy that also means he's human. so why has he been alive over 1000 years? Something seems fishy here. Maybe he was the first to complete being a hybrid. that would explain why he can create hybrids right? That would probably also make him one of the five war potentials...
@ Punisher6 & SaitoSpike
True to that but there is little point in discussing that yet, we have so little answers for this. After all these Quincy invaded both HM and SS, some of them are arrancar like and all of them can steal bankais. However not Ichigos.
Thats as much information we have so far, apart from the analyzing Urahara did on Kirge.
As far as things go we can only speculate, and then there is the entire issue with Uryuu.
SS rely too heavily on ichigo , and if it werent for him aizen would probably be ruling over SS right now and probably kicking all these quincy butts
somebody needs to go down to the jail and make a deal with aizen because if ichigo is stuck in the cage for a long time , there wont even be a SS that needs rescuing
so the blut can't attack and protect at the same time. I bet that buckbeard and the stern ritter's leader will be able to use that in both cases,though
@Punisher6, the Quincy King obviously wanted to be rid of Hueco Mundo or at least the "Hollow", but failed to realize the consequences of disrupting the balance of spiritual worlds with the real world. Plus, Kubo has never emphasized too much on Shinigami having to kill "humans". The closet was the situation recently in the last story arc with Ginjou, who was originally human and made into a "Substitute Shinigami".
I'm not sure where the line is drawn with a Human that becomes a "Quincy", but Human is still Human, so I imagine, Yamamoto either let this man live or thought he actually killed him. How he's stayed alive is something of a mystery and it's possibly due to his Quincy powers or something. The new Qunicy here (The Vandenreich) seem to be a lot more powerful and advanced than the Quincy of the past.
I can see Aizen coming back because of this though his shikai would be useful to trick the enemies and cause them to lose focus of who they perceive as their enemy and it seems like that's what Yamamoto may do but he may just be going up to the main boss or perhaps he's going to the counsel to convince them to release Aizen.
If they are still human at the core they would not pose humans a threat.
And as far as we can tell shinigami killing hollows or quincy killing hollows has never posed significant threat to humans.
Only when Aizen in God mode and the arrancar wanted to they damaged them/killed them.

Also another thing, what about the entire *fact* that killing hollows (as in making them disappear for good) would cause a calamity that the shinigami believe would happen?
What if this is just a fairy tale. And in the eyes of the Quincy is just a means to justify their actions against them. This would surely change the way anyone would look at hollows or the universe. I mean what if the worlds would not collide from this?

If it's just a means to kill Quincy in the past, the annihilation of thousands of human souls to counter the inballance would have been pointless and mark the SS as bad again. I doubt that's where Kubo is going with the plot. I could imagine them wanting to topple the ballance to create a way to get to the Soul King though.
i really dont understand the Aizen is coming back train (and im not targetting anyone specific, a few ppl have insisted this is a good idea).....if it happens i dont see it being more than a glimpse, Aizen had his time, 400+ chapters seems more than enough imo , wouldnt aizen jus be a huge disctraction from the current NEW story? i mean seems to me the flow of this is great why is Aizen's overwhelming presense needed?
not to mention, seeking Aizen's help? we dont even know what the King's full story is yet, despite what we're told about the balance of souls and quincies...etc..., it is told from the perspective of the Shinigami (or those in charge such as central 46), thats as much as we can say about it, imo Aizen isnt necessarily the lesser of these 2 evils so bringing him back seems like a worse risk
i mean realistically Aizen wasnt even preoccupied by this dimension anymore, what reason does he have to help SS, The Shinigami, the living world....i found it pretty clear that Aizen was out for Aizen in the end

Oh and who i want to show up, Zero squad. Seriously SS needs backup and who better then them to give it. Other then that i actually root for full retreat, they cant handle these guys. Also the setting of fighting in SS been there done that. HM same been there done that. So better regroup and fall back.

im just saying that he doesnt need to be released like right now because there wont be a story to tell if they did but when SS is gonna be totally annihilated and trying to retreat and aizen gets released and buys the shinigami some time and i say this because i see aizen as a villain but dont really see him as evil lol and if the guy can manage to bring the arrancars into one army whats to say that he cant be a better CC than yamamoto was
and wouldnt it be better to release him and get half your body sliced in half and be glued back together later instead of totally evaporating into nothing
oh and royal guards could up and defeat someone that even aizen couldnt manage to kill and live up to their overhypedness
