How so? We've never seen it, just speculated, so if it one-hit kills this baddy (which it won't) why would it have had no affect on Aizen? (Unless Yama said something during the Winter War and I have forgotten--please, by all means, correct me.) I'm no up-to-date on the rumors of his omnipotent bankai.

I didn't really mean to imply that I wanted Yama and Aizen to duke it out bankai to bankai. I wanted our hero, Ichigo Kurosaki, to do that with Aizen; but it never happened. Instead Aizen just petered out. You could say that it was because of the hogyoku and that made his mind to mud, but I rather say that was bad writing, because it was.

My theory is that Juha Bach was a former shinigami that betrayed Soul Society and eventually wound up hidding in the living world (probably after waging some kind of previous rebellion). He then developed and taught humans how to wield spiritual energy thus making him technically the first Quincy.

^^exactly. A student from even before the days of Yamamoto's academy. Granted, it's only a slim chance I'm spot-on with that prediction though. But when Yamamoto told Aizen that there's hasn't been a single shinigami born more powerful than himself in over a thousand years, it would be interesting if he was referring to Juha Bach.

Even if he loses, at least we'll hopefully get to see Yama's power in action. Also, Juha's sideburn-stach seemed really bold this chap, to me anyways.

I think it would be nice, if Yamamoto's bankai gets stolen and then he pulls out the badge with his VC's bankai.

lol i would die laughter, but its deff gonna get stolen, state. there so way theyd let smoething powerfull remain, unless it can only be used by the head capt. or maybe its power harm the user as well, or maybe there can only be one way to use it. buuuuuuut even if were being trolled and this is only a stunt to not be underdone by naruto (with the relieving of tobi's real i.d.) and gets his bankai stolen itd be nice to see it once, and exactly how i works.

Got dem chills seeing the old man going bankai. the bad guys seem to be dropping like flies, whereas there is still a couple bankai's left to be shown on the side of SS.

Plot twist: The zero squad are the real bad guys.

Edit: And Aizen was good all along.

as much as i'd like to know their powers i'm also kind of glad that i dont and i could just imagine they are quincy-like and make sense. after the lame explanations of kenpachi's opponents' powers, i wouldnt be surprised if these 2 guys could fire mohawk bullets or turn into a bowl of 5 alarm chili or something equally dumb and unprecedented since shitritters have no rhyme or reason to their abilities. a bad trend that the fullbring arc started

I've always had the sneaky feeling that Aizen doesn't have a Bankai. Sure, he's certainly powerful enough to manifest one, but there's something "wrong" with him that renders him unable to do so. Maybe it's due to some element of his "spiritual genetics" that's missing, or due to the nature of his Zanpakuto (or the sheer power of its Shikai). I can't be the only one thinking that his constant drive to become stronger and change his very nature seems to be out of a need to compensate for something...

And before anyone asks how he could have ever made Captain without having a Bankai, just think about it for a second...

Cause there's a good chance it's Ichigo-type bankai. Not exactly a worthy thing to fight against illusions. (well, with exception of that part when Yamamoto could just slash Aizen wide open instead of releasing Entetsu Jigoku, when he grabbed his arm... but he could do so without bankai as well).

Also, and it's probably the main reason - it's not like he lacked raw power to defeat Aizen till the very end.

I could actually see that being true, seeing how his shikai mindbends people so well and I think that would have been a nice twist to the story if Kubo had established it (or maybe he will).

Okay, okay, okay. I'm not going to reread the chapters that Yama lost to Aizen in because frankly, I don't care. I just want to state a simple notion that this is not an attack on you, but is particularly a frustration with Kubo's writing style or lack thereof: you don't have to pair similar fighting styles (element vs. element; mindbender vs. mindbender; long distance vs. long distance; ext.) for every fight. I think there was only one fight where Kubo went against his own rules, but it was either so long ago or unimportant I have forgotten it.

I can't see why Yama would not defend himself or his people at full power during the Winter War, except for the fact that he had already been affected by Aizen's shikai and potentially feared hurting his comrades. That's the only reason, but then again, I'm pretty sure they are all taken out quite quickly if I recall. What makes this new villain such a threat that he gets to see Yama's bankai two chapters into their confrontation (and Yama should be well aware of his ability to take your bankai away!) rather than Aizen other than the fact that Kubo feels obligated to showing Bankais because he didn't when the oldest Captains were fighting the Espada and Yama was fighting against Aizen. Or Kubo's just trying to get a quick cash in of fan, who may have dropped the series a long time ago, but may pick it back up hearing about Yama's bankai release (it's probably something this simple).

I'm apologize, I didn't mean to rant and rave, but sometimes, when I look over and see the 30 volumes of Bleach I have, a twig of regret and sadness pulsates though my being seeing how this title has been so poorly handled. There was potential.

I still hold out that aizen was the real good guy and only did the things he did because he viewed soul society as wrong. Plus hes my favorite character so of course I would like to see him go out on top.

if kimish can do it with itachi, tite can do it with aizen lol

I've been rereading the Fake Karukara Town Arc recently, since I've been collecting the books as they have been released, so it's been interesting going through THAT war again and comparing it to what looks like the first stage of the 1000 Year War Arc.

It looks like, at the very least, Kubo has learned from his mistakes- not dragging out fights that don't matter, for one. Especially when they seemed to stick to a formula back in the previous arcs.

Bad guy and good guy trade blows all confidently, then the bad guy released his sword and then the good guy would release theirs and, if they have done so before, they'd reveal a new technique and win.

(On an unrelated note, a lot of people were annoyed at Stark's death at the hands of a Shikai- personally, I found that it makes sense considering the guy was pretty much fighting around 4 Captains and never really seemed to be on defence until he got stabbed in the back, after what must have been just a period of time of Shunsui just observing and waiting for the right moment to strike- BIG unrelated though XD)

But back on this arc! It seems that things are developing at a faster rate with this wars focus bieng on the things that matter which is probably leading up to, I think, a period of time where Soul Society is "destroyed" and Ichigo comes to it only to find that he is too late. Sort of like in Naruto with the fights versus Pein and how they all moved at a very fast rate with lots of changing in perspectives and it felt like a countdown to SOMETHING- and that something was Pein nuking Konoha and then Naruto arriving too late.

After that I guess we'll see a big change in the dynamic of the series, since I still feel as though the Arc has only just begun.

Off course I am more than willing to admit/believe/suspect that I am totally wrong :P

Maybe its just the nature of the sword he had, that it simply didn't have a bankai. He was already naturally very powerful.;

And secondly, we know how he became Captain - he had everyone fooled in thinking he had a water based zanpaktou, and he even showed them a fake bankai, so as far as they all knew, he did infact have 1 until he explained his powers.

I simply don't buy that old Yamma's bankai will get stolen. There is absolutely no way he'd pull such a stupid ass stunt like that if he thought his power could get stolen.
It is his power, it simply cannot be stolen from him, nor can anyone else wield it.
Juha Bach musta done something seriously bad a 1000 years ago - that has Yamma so mad that he wants to completely and utterly annihilate him that he is pulling out his ultimate weapon to do so.

Well, if I understood correctly, 1000 years ago Yama decided not to kill him, due to some reason.

So I guess this time his decision has changed due to death of Choujiro and others. He indeed cares for his subordinates (except for that Entetsu Jigoku in FKT, hehe)

so given what we have so far, we can safely say that Bach is a shinigami that's either younger or the same age as yamamoto who learned the quincy teachings and rebelled against SS for some reason.

yama keeps mentioning how he's so cruel when it comes about his subordinates lives so this either means that he was a former captain or a former captain commander and yamamoto overthrew him

there's no way Bach could seal something so powerful as Ryujin Jakka because just like with Ichigo, it won't work....not because he's "special" or anything but simply because their bankais are too vast for the medalize vessel to "contain"...it's prob like trying to fit a bowling ball into a soda can.

now yamamoto is going to loose this fight because squad 0 needs a reason to intervene but mostly because that Bach guy will prove to be more powerful since from what we've seen he's pretty much the final boss of bleach.

and to beat the final boss you have to meet one requirement, you have to be a MC and yamamoto is no MC so he will fall.

Mayuri established that they were Quincies after investigating the incidents at the beginning of the arc + the fact that they use the 5-pointed star and the constant wearing of white, they are indeed Quincies.

That's exactly my point, we know Quincies use long distance weapons (bows and arrows of numerous design and spears like Driscoll) and even their sword (Seele Scneider) is an arrow for their bow, but these guys show up and start turning into apes and all that other weird crap.

Them stealing Bankais is the one thing that is justified from what we kjnow about Quincies. Quincy have always had access to spiritual gadgets and such and are known for it. (Uryu's capsules to make the blue fire, his pendant, seele schneider, etc). How the stealing actually works makes no sense, but whatever, that's the least of my concerns

true true, I like how you think lol. knowing less of their random abilities=better. Surprisingly, mohawk bullets would make more sense than turning into an ape, or becoming a copy of your opponent =P

If he doesn't have a bankai, it'd be a bit of a plot hole. Because it's a fact that those who've achieved bankai are able to release to shikai without saying their zanpakuto's release command. And this is something Aizen has taken advantage of time and time again.

In fact, even when we saw him perform the hypnosis ceremony on someone for the very first time (Barragan), he did not say his zanpakuto's command to release to shikai in order to initially trap him under its spell.
