Well, Hikifune was promoted to the RG right before the events of TBTP (it's why the 12th Division has a vacancy which Urahara proceeds to fill), so unless Hikifune magically surpassed Yama, I doubt it. I think it's more that the five RG could handle the 12 regular Captains and then the five of them together could beat Yama, not that they're each more powerful than Yama.
Thanks for pointing out the typo |toc

The obvious solution is to simply ask Orihime to reject the fact that his bankai is broken. Then she should proceed to reject Yamamoto's death and fix the entire Bleachverse.
She has resurrected Menoly and she can do it again.

We got an incredible chapter with a lot of callbacks to the old Bleach, thus wrapping this arc together with the rest of the story (something Lost Agent arc lacked). We got Kon back. And in the Zero Division...
Not a single bishonen.
This poster is happy. So much for Kubo always drawing the same faces, huh.
I'm still hoping that the cute one, as you labeled it in the poll, is related to Yoruichi somehow and it would explain why she doesn't use her zanpakuto. Perhaps her family doesn't use their zanpakuto or exude their power through items that aren't swords (not Fullbringing though because they're shinigami). We'll see. Yoruichi does carry around her sealed zanpakuto in that flashback with Urahara, but that's probably because Captains, in times of war (you'll recall that in the SS arc, Captains normally didn't carry their zanpakuto around and it was forbidden to release your zanpakuto in certain areas), have to carry their zanpakuto around.
The system makes sense - the most powerful shinigami looking after rest of Gotei 13. While, the shinigamis having strengths either equal or slightly lower than Yama, handling the duty of protecting the king. From whats said, their combined power should exceed Gotei 13 including Yamamoto.
Anyone else want to make an initial ranking for the 5 zero squadron members?
I rank bald bearded dude as 1, or the strongest among the 5.
It might actually work as far as reviving old-man yama and fixing ichigo's zanpaktou. I'm a big fan of yammamoto and wouldn't like nothing more than him making a comeback to kick their asses again, although it seems a bit stretched at this point since there are no remains left of him.
It would just be a spit on the vanderveichs faces though isn't it?
VR: Let's make a statement by making a mess of soul society by killing the shinigami
and most importantly completely annihilating yammamoto to a point of no existance left
Orihime: It's ok, I can just reject everything that happened and make it all dandy again.....*gasp* KUROSAKI-KUN!!!
Kon is still being experimented after all this while..? I'm a bit curious as to why he's still under surveillance and experimented on to this extent.
I wonder who's going to replace byakuya and kenpachi if they won't be able to be captains anymore....for some reason I have a feeling both of them will be back, an integral of the captain team won't just disappear from a threat by the VR.
Kyouraku's statements are making me curious: http://www.mangareader.net/bleach/516/14
Obviously they live in the king's realm and their objective is to protect the king, but what is is that they are actually protecting in soul society..?
There's a lot more to unveil and can't wait for the next chapter.
Wow what a chapter. So much to process...
Beginning with ichigos bankai, I was not expecting bankai breaking to be so serious but knowing how ichigo is special and now is partially a quincy im pretty sure he'll find a way to restore his bankai to its previous state. I like how mayuri accidentally tells ichigo about madarames bankai and hes like 'whoops its a secret, ohh whatever'.
It was so good to see kon again and in a hilarious entrance, it literally had me laughing out loud, and its nice to know that he wasnt forgotton.
The zero squad, obviously some of the captains didnt want ichigo there but that was probably because they dont want ichigo involved in soul society problems, like before. I was expecting squad zero soon but not this soon so it was definitely a pleasant surprise to see them. I cant wait until the next chapter to see their interactions with the current captains/ichigo.

I wonder if the "wall" actually protects SS from the RG. The RG don't have to be "good" or anything. It could be argued that the reason that the Captains aren't happy about seeing the RG is that the RG always intimidate them or treat them like trash.
There could be some form of ultimate punishment/penalty/payment for the involvement of the RG, perhaps as the power source for their transport, wherein a Captain is sacrificed when the RG come to SS.
It's just a thought, but the Captains did look oddly unhappy in a situation where they should be being bailed out and therefore at least happier than before.
I can't help but notice 5 Special War Potentials vs 5 Royal guard ???....Coincidence or part of Bach's plan all along to deal with their absurd power?
Also Hikifune= Fatty is pretty obvious...I'd bet an arm and a leg.
....Theory time...: If royal guard are usually a fixed number (5) and Hikifune got promoted about 100 years ago...maybe it was to fill the vacancy left by Ishin. I wonder if Ichigo will be attacked for maybe having similar reiatsu as Ishin

has everyone forgot the fact that aizen whooped the vizards + the captains + yamaji + a top ranking espada in like 2 secs lol...
my ranking of the RG left to right.
is: fat chick is 2nd weakest, skinny dude is strongest, monk dude is 3rd strongest, hot chick is 2nd strongest, and big mouth is the weakest.
