The Physical Manifestation of Zanpakutos [anime-only]

Welcome fellow Bleach fans, to the Zanpakuto manifestation discussion thread. In episode 230: "A New Enemy! The Materialization of Zanpakuto?" we come to know that Zanpakuto can attain corporeal form. Not only that, they have mutinied against the very shinigamis who are responsible for their very existence. "How" and "why" still remain a mystery. We do know, however, that the root of the mystery lies with this enigmatic figure called Muramasa. He has instigated the uprising of these Zanpakuto who are going against the Shinigami. He also claims that he is a Zanpakuto as well. This statement raises a lot of eyebrows.

As much as we know of the Zanpakutos, their abilities are defined by the characteristic of a particular shinigami just because the Zanpakutos are souls born in the hearts of the shinigamis. Once a shinigami learns the name of the sword he or she wields, they can communicate with that particular zanpakuto and can grow stronger as a result. Now, Muramasa is accusing the Shinigamis of entrapping these Zanpakuto for their own means. Muramasa is also saying that the Zanpakutos have their own soul and that the Zanpakutos want to be free. Okay. If this isn't confusing enough, it gets worse. Not only these Zanpakutos want to be free, but they also want the end of the Shinigami era. Here is a tiny little fact that's being telecast at the beginning of each of these episode for this new anime-original arc:
"A Zanpakutos is born within a Shinigami, and he/she/it ceases to exist when the respective shinigami perishes."
So, why, oh why, are they going with this seemingly suicidal plan layed out by Muramasa? There are many other questions that are popping up as the arc progresses through its story telling. The most curious one is which Shinigami Muramasa owes for his existence?

The purpose of this thread is to garner all such discussion, questions, theories, prediction, and etc that corresponds with these physical manifestation of Zanpakutos. We will also have a poll at the end of this anime-original arc which will list all the zanpakutos that will have a physical manifestation during the course of this anime-original arc. Here in the following are some screen capture for the Zanpakutos that have manifested physically:

Spoiler:



The only rules that need to be adhered to:
All manga spoilers that will reveal future events for the anime counterpart cannot be posted in this thread.
Enjoy the discussion. Be polite to each other.

Thanks Monir!!! I have to say that so far Kazeshini is my favorite but close seconds are Hozukimaru and Tenken...

Most likely because he is brainwashing them. Oh and Tobiume is Momo's

It'd be nice if the did some development with the fighting abilities, it'd be nice to see Hyourinmaru teach Toushirou something.
Also wtf @ Zabimaru. I thought the form in Bankai training was much more awesome.

Yeah same here, I loved the Baboon with the snake tail. I thought that was one of the coolest characters in Bleach, it made me a Renji fan, but a women covered in hair and a mentaly challenged kid on a leash isn't bad either...

Yeah I was thinking the same thing... I think she looks more like a wolf woman than a baboon. Anyway though, if she has to bring the kid on dates thats a deal breaker!!!

Can I just drop the "I believe this is what everyone is thinking" bomb here and say Muramasa belongs to Kenpachi?

It just sounds too revealing considering that this is filler...

How do you know for sure that's Wabisuke, btw? I'm upset because i hoped Wabisuke would look a little cooler. I know you're supposed to be anti-war but you don't have to look like something out of a horror movie.

Two reasons I'm 99.9% sure it's Wabisuke, One: He's EMO looking as Fu@%! Two: he's got that big thing on his back that looks like it weighs a lot!!!! Plus I think they show Kira's face and his at the same time in the credits... Anyone confirm that for me? please.

That he's a stray. At least for now, maybe he really does have a connection to Kenpachi, but assuming this arc will take a year I'd like to be surprised for once and be proven wrong in both cases

Oh man I hope it doesn't take a whole year!! A couple of months tops, maybe even three... but not a year!
