Kind of also suggests the that kenpachi could be someone in the RG the quote "goes by the sound of his own drum" was also what was said about the latest RG
on this page im not sure if thats Zaraki's sword due to there being no jagged edges and it being on the other side of the room, as well as unohana having two swords or one sword and some throwing knives

Still waiting for some sort of flashback to see how the 2nd Kenpachi got to work in place of Unohana. I hope it will come soon.
I was just going back over some of the older chapters when I came across a scene where Love referred to Unohana as "dai-sempai" meaning the first or senior student under the sensei.
Take a look:
Is this just a translation error or is Kubo trying to imply the Unohana was the first student? Maybe old man Yama taught her the sword just like he tried to teach Zaraki. Any thoughts?
The god of fire. Does anyone else think that this incident may have happened before the formation of the gotei 13? My guess is that the group of Shinigami who were present at that time never had a zanpakto. They used kido to control and regulate. I had to think Naruto here when a tailed beast is sealed into a person. Nimaiya Oetsu may have had something to do with being able to somehow seal this monster and "young man" Yama must have been the first one able to control it by forging a relationship with it (figuring out it's name, just like in Naruto). Afterwards, Nimaiya perfected the process which gave birth to the zans we know today.
On a side note, I really wish the next members of the zero squad shed some light on this:
Tessai has been largely ignored but his role as the former Chief of the Kidou following has to have somewhat of a significance within the history of the Seireitei. Or at least I hope. This man maybe somewhat of badass. You never know. Him and his former vice chief Hachigen doesn't seem to use any weapons. What surprises do you have for us Kubo?
mpf,what did I tell you? the previous chapter's last sentence was trash: none of them is gonna die! unohana's current character might die to give way to a criminal unohana? bah,that's not a death either.
Here we can see Unohana drawing her sword and saying that she will save lives of both Hitsygaya and Hinamori. In different translations it was said almost same. So I do think its foreshadowing of her swords healing powers in sealed state(maybe she is in constant shikai or she can use abilities of of her shikai without unsealing sword just like Yamaji was able to pull out few fire moves out of his sword without going shikai). Damn, she was even able to put back to old self Hiyori(Unohana rescues people with names starting with "H" ) who was cut in half by Gin. It has to have something to do with her perfect raiatsu control... http://www.mangareader.net/94-39731-...apter-382.html transfering reiatsu through sword for regeneration purposes?

it'd be very well done if kubo managed to clear the timeline trough both the phoenix royal guard,and unohana. I also hope we will know more of those captains regarded as the strongest (the one with a mask near unohana in the usual picture concerning the 1000 years ago gotei 13)
