Also during Turn Back the Pendulum Kaien wasn't even yet a VC so it's doubtful he would have achieved bankai in such a short timespan.
So,by saying her Zanpakutou's true form,I reckon Minazuki isn't really her Shikai then ?...Or maybe,Minazuki is her Shikai,only a modified version,and when it returns to it's true form it will pawn ass.lolOriginally Posted by Kubo
I don't remember in which chapter,Bach was talking about how bloodthirsty was the CC and his companions before forming the Gotei 13,and it showed a panel with Yama-jii surrounded by his fellow buddies,all looking like they were going to kill everyone,and I remember a woman being in that panel,and many of us speculated on her being Unohana,since her hair was unraveled...
This just goes to show,that with enough motivation and ambition,everything is possible.Renji had set an impossible goal in his life,that of overcoming Kuchiki Byakuya,and hence he trained beyond his limits and tried his very best and achieved Bankai,despite being a common Shinigami...and yeah,he wasn't a genius.I guess if you have proper motivation and not a genius,you can become very strong...yet,if you have proper motivation and are a genius(Hitsu),you can become really,really strong...that's why I have great expectations for Hitsugay(a).He has motivation (Momo) and he is a genius....so I expect great things from him...Originally Posted by Hakuteiken
I was hoping that Hisagi had grown powerful enough to be promoted if a position opened up but he seems to progress in power at the rate of an average Shinigami. However the fight he had with Driscoll might be deceiving, he probably did attain Bankai during the timeskip and just did not use it because he had heard about the Captains Bankai being stolen. Also he may have been struggling in Shikai form but so was every Captain except for the Commander of course.
P.S. if i was Shunsui and was going to pick two vice captains I would went with Nanao and Lisa instead of Okikiba. hehehehe
I'm not disregarding the possibility actually, she's a noble, she used Raikoho already which suggests that she is well versed in Kido, but so far I haven't see a clue pointing to that sword being her Zanpakuto
Am I the only who's not a Renji fan? I mean, I liked the guy during the SS Arc but after that it just went blah and boring for me.
Its just that, I'm not getting why he would not be offered the position.
The only reason he could not return in the first place was because the 3 vacant spots where filled by his fellow Vizards.
Also his best friend Rose rejoined, I see no reason why he would not be offered or want to rejoin them given the emergency at hand.
Please try not to get distracted from the topic.
Especially refrain from having debates about something not really related to the manga to begin with.
I'm gonna hold on to my irrational hope that Hitsugaya would face off against Zanka no Tachi.
Yes, yes, I know ZnT is with Bach and Ichigo will face Bach...but somehow, I want Hyorinmaru vs ZnT.
If you're gonna replace Shunsui at a time of war like this one, ideally, you'd replace him with a captain of equal calibre or at least someone who's the closest to Shunsui of all the candidates.
Love fits the bill (he's more capable than Renji) and if you take Urahara out of the list.
