The difference between Kyouraku and Ukitake is the unreleased form. Kyouraku is carrying two swords with him, while Ukitake only has one, and it splits up to become a dual weapon.
As for the theory, I can't really comment on it as it stands for now, but I believe Kyouraku was referring to it as a single entity in his fight against Starkk, if I'm not remembering it wrong.
1. I don't have to prove, that both swords have THE SAME release command. It's so obvious, that I won't waste my time looking for it.
2. No evidence? Well, saying his swords are typical twin-swords-style kit isn't evidence? Both swords are complementing each other. Wakizashi is faster, weaker, used to confuse, katana is used to wound, thus is slower but stronger and longer.
3. Do I really have to prove, that he was using 2 swords back then? http://www.mangastream.to/bleach-cha...8-page-10.html
4. And 2 Zanpakutos looking IDENTICAL IS impossible. Katen Kyokotsu has pretty unique look. It'd be impossible to find second Zanpakuto, that is entirely different, but with same looks.
And I don't know if you already know, but Zanpakutos and their powers are manifestation of one's soul. You assume, that Kyoraku has two souls?
Hakuteiken- In Ukitake's case they're connected with a chain, that allows him to use his ability. He HAS to use both of them. And them carrying different ability is impossible. One is absorbing, chain boosts, second fires back.
PS. If I may, you're the only one who is writing nonsense without evidence. I could as well say, that Hiyori is in fact Masaki, Hiyori is a Quincy with a Zanpakuto and she is Aizen's lover. Oh, Aizen is Ichigo's father! Still more believable and just as proven as your theory.

I know, I was just putting out the basic difference between the looks.
At any case, there wasn't any mention of what possible significance a dual sword could have. Captain-Commander called Kyouraku and Ukitake to be the only dual sword wielders in SS, but that's about it.
Maybe going Bankai with a dual weapon will have some sort of meaning or maybe not. It would be good, if we had such a high-detail in the flow of the story for me, though.
If anything we already know now that you can create many more zanpakuto from your soul. Or else this guy in the current chapter wouldnt have a entire cheerleadersquad of them. Also i supose the one that kicked him is his main one. So he could be wielding 1 but also 2. Unless you dont have 2 arms lol.
Another thing you talk about the souls? Then howcome we have 3 entities inside Ichigo? Another thing is that each shinigami has his own soul + has a representation of his/her zanpakuto. So they all have 2+ entities. Whats you point here?
Just brighten up a bit and after all its a theory not a fact what im pointing out here. But your more inclined to debunk my theory before even looking at it.

Maybe he put a part of his soul in a sword to create artificial Zanpakuto. Still, he is their creator. Shunsui isn't,Quote:
Zanpakuto= Manifestaton of HIS/HER soul... 2+ entities in normal Shinigami? Where? It doesn't matter, that Ichigo has Hollow as well. It manifests as a mask.Quote:

shunsui only has one release so the swords are two parts to one whole. i know what your saying but just because the swords slightly differ in size doesnt mean they are different. if they were shunsui would have two different looking blades and two sets of different attacks. and your also confused about ichigos spirit too.
shirosaki and zangetsu are one in the same as stated many times, shirosaki only appeared when ichigo was in the hole, he is not separate from zangetsu he`s like his dark side.if shirosaki was a separate entity than he would also have a separate zanpakto with different abilities. 1 soul/spirit = 1 zan. youre pretty much saying ichigo should have 3 separate zans.
its the same way water can be water,ice and steam all at the same time. they are just two sides to a coin my friend.

As for the zanpakuto. 1 release doesnt really help you and quoting anime by default is not canon.
What my point is is that you possibly can have more then 1 zanpakuto we see this at your Royal castle here. That in itself is proof enough of the possiblity.
Shunsui is only a possiblilty. Being stuck in things like only 1 release or they look the same is no help here. Because that itself is no proof but only what you believe it is.
There is no rule that says you need 2 different releases to have 2 zanpakuto. There is also no rule that they shouldnt look similar. Because we never saw 2 zanpakutos from the same user. But this guy at the Royal guard has them and they are all in their physical form not sword form.

so him releasing both swords with one command isnt canon? doesnt that mean theyre both from the same source if they both activate to the same command?
so zangetsu saying both of them were originally one isnt canon? both of them are a different entity coming from the same source! thats why i said its like water. water can be water, ice and steam at the same time no? or am i lying?
Nimaiya gave birth to Zanpakatou, doesn't mean they all are [created by him], just that he created the first one. Maybe he's just the first one to find a way to put part of ones soul, transform it into a spirit and transform it into a sword.
The spirit can certainly be called a different entity, as it can speak and think for itself, even if it's based upon the shinigami's soul in the beginning.

There is no point in coming up with a mathematical, real-life explanation on how a zanpakuto works. They're just magic swords owned by magical people and therefore can be of any shape and form. The only rules are that each zanpakuto has a conscience, a name and a special power that is triggered by knowing that name. Nothing more.
For instance, it wouldn't be weird for Hikifune's zan to be that bigass spoon she had with her. Just for instance.
Saying that a wakizashi is not suited for battle is overlooking the fact that some characters have zanpakutos that look like yo-yos or whatever the hell Nnoitra was swinging back there. In Shinigami's case, everyone has a normal-looking sword s far but it isn't set in stone that it has to be that way.
It's just magic, talking swords.
i just relate that to real life. his hollow powers represent anger and instinct, which he can control in the form of his mask like an angry person keeping their cool but when ichigo reaches his limit then he goes full hollow and enters a fit of rage. he is still ichigo just not himself.
its the same with zangetsu. hichigo is just a representation of ichigos instincts while zangetsu is the real thing, its like hollowq ichigo is just the angry version of zangetsu. when his hollow powers aka his anger are in control hichigo appears so its not really like they are different people, just different personalities
