Trainings not over yet, and Unohana hasn't gone Bankai yet. First Kenpachi has to be restored to a level where he can fight more evenly with Unohana, she can't teach him anything from fighting if he keeps on dying every 3 seconds. It is entirely possible there will be no art, but it shouldn't be surprising that we haven't gotten to that part yet.
I am also hoping that we get back to ichigo soon, I want to find out more about the asauchi, and the parallel of forging the zanpaktou- it might reveal why zakari has been unable to speak with his zanpaktou.
tho I suspect his zanpaktou, didnt want to talk with zakari, because he was not even fully using his power and why should the zanpaktou lend itself to an inferior shinigami that isnt fighting with everything they have, even if they thought they were.
Well its most likely the case. Whta would be the point of training Zaraki without bringing back his full power....Quote:
Also the art of killing is nothing more than Zanjutsu.
Based on what I've read and observed in the past couple of chapters, Zaraki was using pure instinct as a child, when it came to killing period. And, the only real reason he held himself back for so long, is because he was in fear of never finding a real challenge out there again like Unohana. That's why I think, he hasn't necessary "lost" his instinct or power or whatever, he simply needs someone strong enough to bring him back to that state again.
I remember, Zaraki pointed out his love for battle, when he was first introduced and fought Ichigo.
The Art of Killing or whatever, deals with technique period. Unohana has perfected styles in sword killing that come from pure instinct and that's what, she's trying to bring back rather than teach in Zaraki. Zaraki, I think, already has it, he's just forgotten with so much time that's passed.
I already said that I don’t like that Zaraki just when he was a kid was stronger than Unohana, which was the kenpachi of the first generation, and as if this is not enough what worsen the thing is that it has been said from Senshui that the first generation was considered the strongest generation.
Anyways as I said in the chapter thread I believe that at that time Unohana did not knew the name of her sword, she had not awaken her shikai and neither her bankai.
For this reason even if Unohana last words seem to intend that she desires to die, I believe that she will heal the injury from of the last attack of Zaraki, and then she will use his shikai in battle form, she will say the real name of her sword, so she will be at the same level of Zaraki, so the real fight will begin (infact we have seen from Ichigo the increase in power that occurs after knowing the name of the sword).
Anyways even if I don’t like this I must say that the fact that Zaraki suppressed his power because he did not wanted to lose the only fighters that could match him perfectly suited him.
Infact Zaraki consciously suppresses his power, thanks to his eyepatch.
Beside that I have finally understood the fight against the fifth Espada.
Infact until now I have not understood why at the beginning even after that he took away his eyepatch he was still inferior to the Espada, but then suddenly when he seem to be defeated he is raised again and then defeated Nnoitora without problem, as if it was a joke.
What I did not understood was the reason for this, because it was not a behavior from Zaraki that to pretend to have lost, to deceive the opponent in that way.
