Unohana is Yachiru.
Did anyone even think of that being a possibility?!!? Holy shit Kubo.....you truly are the king of mindfuckery.
Shunsui being Captain Commander is really cool, but most probably saw that coming. His reaction was still priceless though. I wonder how popular he is? I want a new popularity poll.
Somehow I doubt unohana was actually the kenpachi when it all began. Unohana overall seems too young to have been kenpachi back when yamamoto seemed to be a middle aged man. More so, shunsui refers to her as a senpai which I don't think would be necessary if she was that old. Senpai is as far as I know applied to your older peers, people not significantly over you. If unohana dated back to the time when yamamoto was a younger man then she would precede shunsui and ukitake by a couple thousand years as far as we know much like sasakibe did. Shunsui seems to be in the 1000 year old or so mark, I don't see how unohana can be more than 100 or 200 years older than shunsui himself even in a extreme scenario. 200 years is already more than enough difference for shunsui to be a toddler and unohana to already be a captain in which case the sempai honorific is contextually pointless. In all likelihood by the time shunsui joined the squads unohana was already something like a seated officer which would kinda justify the sempai honorific.

As to 'shitty VC Renji,' Kubo himself has said he made Renji a character who parallels Ichigo. Both are young (Ichi for a human and Renji for a Shinigami), both have powerful reiatsu and neither one uses kido effectively (probably because more powerful reiatsu is harder to control while using kido spells and requires more practice. I am sure that even such fine kido masters as Byakuya and Urahara had a time in their lives when they blew things up on accident with powerful reiatsu while trying to attempt kido. They simply were trained to control it properly. Ichi and Renji could be trained to do the same.) Both have bankai...and broken bankais that have to be fixed. The RG has been assigned to rebuild the Gotei 13. They are not going to 'toss aside' a person who has achieved bankai, as Renji has, just as they won't throw Byakuya out, even though he was defeated. And it was explained that Byakuya, Rukia and Renji could not be fully healed in the Seireitei. They needed greater measures. So, there are many reasons why Renji was included in the trip. Take it easy. Take a few cleansing breaths and be patient.
Believe me, when we see Zaraki again, the wait will have been worth it. He and Unohana are going to make those freaking quincys squeal like babies and run for their mommies.
I still don't understand what's the problem of tenjiru's blood and white bone treatment,why were those 2 having troubles?
(can someone link when yachiru and kenpachi meets and mention the title of kenpachi and yachiru?
Fullbringers or even Arrancar can be of help in standing up to regular SR and I have had an odd feeling since his character's introduction that Haschwald will be the one fighting Ichigo, at least initially, as in the case of FKT arc, when he fought Gin at the time he wasn't good enough to stand a chance against Aizen.

"Time for staying outside Shatten Bereich" may have got something to do with it, I don't know.
At any case, I would refrain from using Bach in any sort of age comparison at this point.
ah,here it is: http://www.mangareader.net/94-568-7/...apter-114.html ,yachiru calls for unohana,but kenpachi doesn't change his mood. here he suffers for not having a name,and then revelas the "key-factor" http://www.mangareader.net/94-568-11...apter-114.html
So basically, Kenpachi's relationship to the Gotei 13 is like a gorilla with human intelligence hanging around a bunch of martial artists and managing to outfight all of them with nothing but his animal strength and gorilla rage.
And now they're gonna teach the gorilla how use a sword.
