    Yeah, pretty much ever Captain and Vice Captain got a pill from Urahara. So it would be dumb if he didn't take it.

    But, even IF he didn't take it and it would get stolen, the person who would steal it wouldn't have time to "learn" about it.
    Remember, there were a few days/weeks between the first invasion and the second invasion so they could learn how to control/use it.

    I'm like... 90% sure he took the pill.

    Tbh the fact they didn't SHOW him taking it... does he maybe not need to

    GGAAHHH can't wait!

    Honestly, why would they? If they had to show everybody take a pill you would be 2 pages further :P

    But again, even IF they steal>they don't know how to use it without taking some time to learn

    IIRC they only showed the people who were currently fighting, the ones who had Bankai stolen, that's 99% the reason they didn't show Shunsui taking it.

    BUT

    It would be pretty cool if there was some other reason, like it's too strong/wierd to be taken, it's ALREADY partially Hollowfied, or some other random badassery

    Haha, i doubt it would be already partly Hollowfied :P

    Too weird? Yeah i can deal with that. Kids game becoming real in Shikai, so i can totally imagine his Bankai being something like a game master asking questions x)
    "In what year did the Quincy's first fight a war?"

    I hope it follow's the game part, not the kids. Altho either could be really interesting. Maybe his Bankai turns people in it's radius to kids.... O.o Would explain why it was too dangerous to use it in the Starkk fight

    I figured it could be something along the lines of "Shikai makes kids games become real, Bankai makes ADULTS games come real"

    Or possibly... We've been (kinda) lied to, and his Shikai's powers isn't that it bring kids games to life, but that it lets his Zanpaktou enforce it's will on people in it's radius, maybe his Bankai allows Shunsui to enforce HIS will on the targets.

    And that his Shikai wanted to play children games and that everybody in a radius has to follow it.

    But wouldn't that make it too easy for Shunsui? He could literally just go Bankai, let the enemy kill himself and be over with it.
    Ofcourse it wouldn't be that easy, cause his Zanpakuto has "rules" which apply to himself too.

    Something maybe with the Oni/Demon thing? Releasing your inner Demons, inner fears or something like that?

    Yeah basically his Shikai has two spirits(is this canon, can't remember), and for his Shikai the child is incharge and makes the rules everyone has to 'play' by. Then in the Bankai the adult is in charge, and lets Shunsui set the rules.

    But wouldn't that make it too easy for Shunsui? He could literally just go Bankai, let the enemy kill himself and be over with it.
    Ofcourse it wouldn't be that easy, cause his Zanpakuto has "rules" which apply to himself too.
    It would work in a similar way to his Shikai, just directly under his control, so he wouldn't just be able to say "Alright, everyone not a Shinigami dies, I win" But he would be able to, for example, set a rule "Everyone who inflicts damage on another person, will instead TAKE that damage themselves" and then LET Haschwalth hit him and get hurt

    Something maybe with the Oni/Demon thing? Releasing your inner Demons, inner fears or something like that?
    That'd be pretty cool too, but inner fear is kinda As Nodt's thing, something Oni/Demon based would be cool though, seeing as his Shikai abilities had demonic names.

    I think it was non-canon but that Kubo designed the spirits.

    But, a rule like that would kinda counter itself. Cut yourself, who gets the damage? You? Your enemy?

    If we look at how every captain described their Shikai, they literally had that. And their Bankai was literally just a pimped up version of it.

    Hitsugaya gets more ice, more dragon blablabla.
    Komomaru gets a giant instead of parts of it.
    Byakuya gets more leaves and can control them.

    The upgrade of kid games would be adult games, but yeah. What exactly would one see as adult games? :P

    There in lies the mystery...

    I can just see him delivering a line like: "The games we adults play... they're not as flashy, not as many rules... but FAR MORE DEADLY" and then using it to do something insane .

    Since they went through the training i guess it's a safe bet that Renji's Bankai is a bit different now but i wonder if Rukia has one and what is it like
    You're a fine example of how gamer communities have become infested with endlessly whining and bitching, arrogant, opinionated, unreasonable, all the way immature, completely delusional, tendentially psychotic, insulting individuals one really doesn't want to be linked with. And playing with you guys is certainly no fun at all. I don't know where this kind of folks spawns from. Must be a nest somewhere ...
    A fine summarization of the community

    It will probably be something with rules, doubt it will be a giant chess board x)
    As for Renji/Rukia, i guess Renji's will be faster, maybe even shorter?
    Rukia, well, yeah it could be possible that she has one now. If not, i guess she has extra "dances".

    Oh there will be rules, that is a given, there will just be LESS of them, more subtle, easier for him to manipulate and harder for his opponant to understand .

    for Renji... I'm kinda hoping it's just TOTALLY different, I always thought his Bankai was fucking stupid... But yeah if they HAVE to keep his current design faster and shorter would be a huge improvment.

    Rukia is hard to tell... again more dances is probably a solid bet, but would that be ALL, or would it also convey some other benefit.

    We spend all week discussing the potential powers of Shunsui, Rukia, Renji and the "B" Sternritter, and the entire chapter is about the Luchador. Interesting power though

  17. #1557
    That guy has a weird ass fucking power. Pretty cool though lol.

    Btw that guy's bankai isn't "big."

    Also, when are they gonna fucking hollify and poison him?

    Damn haha. Didn't see that coming. Guess we'll see Rose(?) his Bankai next then.

    So as long as ANYBODY is watching, and cheering him on, he gets stronger? I'd see Kenpachi fight this guy.... "Oh hey, you are doing good, keep going. Go Superstar, you ain't strong enough yet."


    I don't think using attacks like a punch or a slash will poison him, but actual Reiatsu is like poison to them.

    Kind of boring.

    Why the fuck did he ask Renji a question if he just poked his ears deaf.

    Yeah that seemed kinda lame. My first thought was, how is he supposed to hear the cheers of his "fans" now? Since that's the premise of his abilities. And I didn't really understand the point of Kinshara's Bankai.

    Why didn't either of them hollowfy? I'm getting abit wary of how every Captain seems to be pretty useless now.
