i meant that the retcon would be if aizen didn't use his bankai because he hated it. he never showed any evidence of disliking kyoka suigetsu

I think he's the only character that can actually get away with explaining his power just because of its nature. You don't know if you were already exposed to it w/out your knowledge and the only person that knew how to break the spell is dead.

Actually, the only solid thing Aizen has said about his ability is the one thing that will tell you if you've been exposed. If he displays his Shikai to you (witness the flashback to his first encounter with Barragan), you've been exposed. Period (as far as anyone living is concerned). After that point, you can no longer trust what you sense where Aizen is concerned. Then the only problem is determining whether Aizen "is concerned".

Aizen explained his powers because
1.) He's very arrogant and didn't think his ability could be dispelled without knowing the secret. And even then, it's not exactly an easy secret to take advantage of
2.) He no longer needed to keep his true intentions a secret

As for not having a bankai, well...Kubo would have some explaining to do. Because according to the information we were given way back during the SS arc, you supposedly need to have learned Bankai in order to release to shikai without saying the release command...which is a supposed fact about zanpakuto lore that Aizen has taken advantage of time and time again. We've even seen him perform the hypnosis ceremony on an unaffected victim and sure enough, he released to shikai right in front of him without saying the command.

So unless his zanpakuto is the only exception to the rule (similar to how Komamura's zanpakuto was the sole exception to the broken bankai rule), then I just don't see it.

What if Aizen says "The truth is my Bankai has always been activated. Kyoka Suigetsu's Bankai is... Aizen Sosuke! That's true I'm just the embodiement of the Soul King's zanpakuto" *brain explodes*

haha! i wouldn't put it past aizen for something like that to happen. it's basically a ripoff of muramasa from that zanpakutou filler arc though

It's like he didn't want to use his Shinigami abilities once he'd gained new ones. Like he resented them for some reason...
Hmmm never thought about it like that.

Resentment. Or perhaps he is the last heir of the Sousuke clan? The 5th noble family that was killed a 1000 years ago? So he sees himself as....

Raz Al Ghul!

Darn you ninjad me there. But yeah.

But personally I want to see one or more of these showdowns to happen:

Ywach vs Shunsui & Joshiro

Shunsui vs Joshiro

Aizen vs Urahara

Mayuri vs Urarahara

Urahara & Hoyori vs Hikifune

Joshiro vs Haschwalth

Ichigo vs Uryuu

Isshin vs Ryukken

The RG vs the 5 Sceret War potentials (Ichigo, Aizen, Kenpachi, 4th, 5th)...

5 rg members 5 SWs? A foreshadowing perhaps?

And then Aizen and Ichigo get married and live happily-ever-after. Best ending ever !!

On another topic, any guesses when Shunsui's Bankai will be shown ?

Why else do you think he's surrounded himself with women his entire career? It's so he can build up a resistance!

You can just stop right there on that. Not that what you're mentioning is even remotely a spoiler for episodes that haven't legally aired in the US as of yet (the fact that there even is a Series 3 makes it not a spoiler, not to mention the last scene of Series 2), but let's just stop that discussion before someone does get too loose in the lips regarding something that isn't grotesquely obvious.

Besides, Bleach is at least better than Marvel or DC, who are constantly bringing back characters that actually were dead, rather than making characters ludicrously unkillable.

Actually, this is the first arc where people have actually died and there's a few characters that I seriously don't think will make it until the end. So, I don't think we can say Bleach brings back the dead anymore.
