Hitsugaya's Hyourinmaru takes the no. 1 spot for me. Ice attacks look and sound cool, and the dragon summoned at shikai or the wings at bankai just look pure wicked

I don't really like Ichigo's Shikai... I like his Bankai... The same for Byakuya
I like Ukitake Shikai, but I still didn't see what it's capable of...

So... I must say "other"... Because Rukia's shikai isn't there ¬¬ and it's my favorite one...

I liked Ichigo's old sword more, the one thats a huge buster sword kinda like clouds from ff7. The big pointy sharp one was cool too but this new ones kinda seems odd, did anyone else notice it has a nazi like design by the handle?

Plus his suit doesnt look as great as the old death god clothes.

I think one of my favourites so far is Byakuya's bankai, the way his sword falls into the ground like water is a cool affect.

What is Matsumoto Rangiku's (10th Co-Captain) sword do?, all i can remember is the blade disapears dispursing flower pedals as it vanishes.

Argh! Hyourinmaru's in second! IMO, zangetsu is overrated, since with a deal of training, one could attain similar speeds to the bankai... Added bonus with Hyourinmaru, ice can be used to slow down your enemies, giving you added leverage when you use shunpo. ^^

*EDIT* Wasn't his shikai the dragon? IMO, his shikai is better, since I am not 100% sure what the bankai does...

the swatszika was used way before the nazis adopted it.

Rankigu's shikai makes her sword turn into ash. I don't think we know what the ash does exactly

As has been mentioned endlessly, the hilt of Ichigo's bankai is in the shape of a manji or sauvastika which is the counterpart of the swastika. The difference is in the direction of the arms which rotate counter-clockwise on Ichigo's swordhilt instead of clockwise as the swastika does. In Buddhist religious symbolism, the sauvastika is a night symbol that stands for the powers of the unknown. Corresponding to that, the swastika is a sun symbol.

These symbols exist in many different cultures and are many centuries, even millenia old. They predate nazism so much that it is an insult to these ancient and revered symbols that they have come to be associated with that cause.

The main reason that the manji is used as the hilt of Ichigo's sword is that it is also the kanji for 'ban' as in 'bankai.' In this context, it means final.

PS. I can't believe I bothered to type out one of these essays... again. Maybe I ought to create a thread for it.
