And Mayuri spills the beans to Ichigo about Ikkaku. So that makes Mayuri and Ichigo the only ones that know about his Bankai. I just love how he doesn't have a care in the world about it.
Ichigo's Bankai thing will get fixed, because as we all know Ichigo is a special case when it comes to anything. So the five members of the Royal Guard combined surpass the power of the Gotei 13 combined. The real question is if Yama is included within that statement along with Byakuya and Zaraki of course. I would assume so otherwise there would be no point in Kyoraku mentioning their power surpassing all of 13 Divisions instead of just say the current 10 Division Captains. And i like the fact that not all of them look like they are total badass killers and whatnot appearance wise.
Getting from What Kyoraku said, there are only five Captains/Members in Zero Squad.
Well, I hope Ichigo's Bankai will be restored somehow. If his Shinigami powers got back several times, then he should get his Bankai back as well. Otherwise he would get way weaker without it.
Also how come his Bankai Zan is broken, but he is still in his Bankai outfit and broken Bankai Zan doesn't get back in Shikai.
About Royal Guards... They look really strange for now. Still, it's quite an interesting info that they are stronger than the current entire Gotei. Still, it's not a big fit. Or at least quite vague, since Aizen or Yama should be also stronger than current Gotei, since Yama and Sasakibe died and Kenpachi and Byakuya are out of the game. Also Hitsu, Soi Fong and Komamura lost their Bankais... So it's quite obvious that these guys should be stronger than current Gotei. Still, I didn't think that there will be only 5 members.
So, in the enxt chapter we are bound to see a conversation between Royal Guards and Captains of Gotei and also maybe something will be connected to Ichigo.
P.S. Damn!!! We finally got to see Kon.!!!^) He buffed really much. Never expected him to appear at this point.
the zero squad looks....like fodder...altho the girl on the right and the ronin/mafia lookin one seem to have potential for badassery lol
but mostly not at all what i would have imagined, i was thinkin all along the lines of Yamas of different ages, jus all business types
but more importantly it would seem as though Kubo is going for a retry of Ichigo's entire zanpakuto....interesting now i wonder what the final result of this will be

For all we know, the breaking of Ichigo's bankai could be the key to more abilities being unlocked.
If Aizen cloned himself 4 times, he would also surpass the entire Gotei 13. Just a reminder than Aizen alone was capable of taking down most of the Gotei 13 by himself. Add a second or third Aizen and even Yamamoto would die easily.
I dont like the appearence of a Zero swad...they look kinda....bad? Not impressed at all...all the rest- nice chapter with good development, felt like 2 or 3 regular bleach chapters
Like everyone, I'm hoping Hikifune is the black-haired one.
I thinks it's time Isshin made an appearance. So those omake at the end of the Arrancar downfall arc were true! Kon did get abducted by the science division!
The royal guards appearance really threw me off. If they make an OVA they should give an ominous tune during the RG arrival and then circus tunes as each captain is shown.
But seriously, a written transcript that urahara and co are okay doesnt mean a thing. For all we know they are lying in a heap somewhere as possibly gingo/grimjow sent the message.
About ichigo's quincy heritage I wonder if Uryu may just be his cousin or something given how thin their stock had been. If so, Uryu's father must have known about Ichigo. I hope he and Isshin help Ichigo repair his sword.
And it's been a while since old man zangetsu made an appearance as did hollow ichigo!
More abilities? You mean bigger Getsuga?
Talking seriously, I never expected Ichigo's Bankai breaking to be a case here... Hope he will try to talk to Zangetsu. I don't really understand, why he didn't try it, though it's Ichigo...
Also about abilities. Yama stated that Ichi's Bankai looks still incomplete and that Ichigo still needs time to master it fully and understand its abilities, so I believe we'll get that if it wasn't his final Bankai's appearence and form, then he will fix it by acquering that form. I believe Isshin can help him with this. Still, it seems that this won't happen soon.
