I should have said they can't be fixed back to the way they were before.
But it is still a scary thing.
One would have thought that this should be common knowledge among Shinigami but I guess it has never come up since it doesn't seem like Captains and other Bankai users would be using their Bankais frequently...
It is Kubo's plot device to justify Ichigo developing quincy powers. Bye-bye hollow powers. Bye-bye masked Ichigo.
If the sword won't do, time to use the bow and arrows!
What would the Zero Squad have to fear from Aizen though. I don't see why they wouldn't release him. He's definitely a war potential and asset, plus he's no threat to the zero squad. We can assume since most of them have been in the kings realm all of this time, the only one who MAY have even seen his shikai would be Hikifune. The others have probably never seen his shikai and if they're all as strong as the combined Gotei 13 (of which Aizen was a part of), then it stands to reason that they could probably wtfpwn Aizen as well. We can just assume that these are five Yamamotos standing before us who even Aizen feared to a degree.
They are stronger than the gotei 13, not as strong. Aizen would be too big a variable but if they are desperate enough they might release him. But he's only useful if he has powers which also makes him very dangerous.
I can actually see it coming, the release of aizen, to give us a plot reason to show off the zero squads fearsome power, since they trash aizen shortly afterwards, because he tries to escape/double cross themQuote:
Just a daily reminder that Aizen pwned Gotei 13 + Vizards, ALONE please, without any help, like a man and like a boss (except with Yamamoto, who could probably do the same too)
So, Zero Squad trashing Aizen, doubt it, they'd win, but it won't be an easy win IMO
Are you serious? Dont you remember that aizen himself trashed everyone besides Yama,Quote:
No zero squad member alone can or will defeat aizen ever. i bet these guys are also going to get trashed by Buck beard and Haswald just as easy as aizen trashed the vizards.
I believe the key members to this war are, Ryuuken,Ichigo,Ishida,Aizen,Isshin,Urahara.
I wonder how ichigo's inner spirits would be affected by his bankai being physically broken. Using bankai has been shown to actually result in a physical change in the zampakuto spirit so wouldn't be so strange if breaking bankai would actually maim the spirit directly which would be the main reason for the loss in power bankai seems to experience after being broken. So if the spirit itself is what is being maimed when bankai breaks, how would it affect the relationship between zangetsu and shirosaki? Shirosaki would have hypothetically gotten stronger when ichigo learned fullbring. So the scenario would be that zangetsu got weaker because of broken bankai and shirosaki got stronger because of fullbring. I also wonder if ichigo will acquire a third persona for his quincy powers. It wouldn't be so strange at this point although I would prefer if everything was limited to zangetsu and shirosaki.
