    It doesn't have one I believe, CJack14dt, since he can't even get his zanpakutou out of shikai form to the "normal" look.

What I was kind of bummed about was that when I heard Zangetsu's (Bach's) explanation of his suppression of his other powers I was like, "oh, that's maybe why we've never heard the release command of Zangetsu" and this was Kubo's 2nd chance at introducing us to what it was. But alas... no luck.
    What about Tosen's 2nd in command?

    Make that 4.

    Curious to see what his new swords do.

    Wasn't expecting their design to be a large blade and a smaller one, let alone be two blades.

    Kazeshini doesnt count as a twin sword Zanpaktou like Ukitakes and Kyorakus. Yamamoto himself stated that the two of them wield the only known twin swords.

    In fact I'm pretty sure Shunsui's is the only TRUE dual blade Zanpaktou, because Ukitake's is one sword when sealed and only splits when he releases his Shikai, as well as being connected the whole time by the rope thing.

    Of course now we have Zangetsu as well, but I still don't think Ichigo will do any training with Shunsui, he's never been a "techinque" fighter, he'll just bruteforce everything as per usual .

    As cool as a training montage with Shunsui would be, I also doubt that would happen. I just hope the brute force he applies as per usual is done in a variety of ways this time, rather than the one trick pony it was with Getsuga Tenshou.

    Just dawned on me but what if he has 2 bankai like one for each sword...That could be pretty badass.

    As cool as that would be, I doubt it. Mostly because while Zangetsu is now two blades, it's still one Zanpaktou, so more than likely he'll only have one Bankai.

    it would be fucking cool though , I've said the same thing before about Shunsui.

    Even if it's just one Bankai, it might have multiple forms and/or powers, like how Yamamoto had North, East, South and West, or Byakuya had Slaughterscape, Mawscape and Endscape.

    ooh yeah that could work Maybe it could have a basic Shinigami form, then a Quincy form and a hollow form that would be pretty sick...

    Hmm maybe multi form is what ALL bankai have and it's just that the supposedly incomplete bankai are single form due to lack of mastery of them...

    Could THAT be what is meant by it taking 10+ years to master them.

    woah... That's actually a good point , if you look at all the people who have supposedly "mastered" their Bankai (Yama-ji, Byakuya, we can assume Shunsui's will be, as his Shikai has multiple effects/forms etc) they're all multi form, then if you look at the more... immature bankai (Ichigo, Hitsgaya, Renji) they're all single form...

    This requires research

    It's possible, Galladhadd. Though I'm still of the thinking that he'll get a new different bankai and that different bankai can evolve like Ulquiorra's because of his quincy, hollow and shinigami powers.

    I hope it's that atleast.

    He means that you mentioned Gallahad's name, but Gallahad was just expanding on Sorrior's idea in his previous post..

    It's okay Sorrior, I know how much of a crazy bleach fan you are. You even mention Bleach analogy's in general off topic threads that have nothing to do with anime from people who think you're talking about washers and driers when you talk about "bleach" so I don't think there's any doubt.

    Actually it just worked as an analogy there.

    I DO however mainly partake pf anime and manga thus the reason it is often used for analogies.

    Holy crap. Ishida is Juha Bachs successor. I really did not see that coming. Ichigo vs Ishida arc incoming.

    And apparently he's getting his own power upgrade that will put him on the same level as Bach, or at least stronger than any of the Sternritters.

    told you :P.

    Ishida becomes the new emperor and gets a MAJOR powerup, just like everyone else (except shunsui, my boy doesn't NEED a powerup), then Ichigo will fight Ishida and someone else (probably either Shunsui or Zaraki) will take on Juha Bach.

    fairly boring chapter this week, especially after last weeks amazingness. Best part was meeting all the new Sternritter, I'm guessing they have one each for every letter of the alphabet, so 25 badass overall to defeat (as Juha is A and I'm not counting him as a Sternritter).

    that's ALOT of fights :S
