Aizen Returns! Kamikake Initiated – Bleach 617

Bleach 617 shows the return of a God, Aizen Sosuke’s mouth is unsealed by Ukitake, but most of his restrains have already disappeared allowing him to speak, see and move freely. Ukitake and his Mimihagi enable and initiate their Kamikake to find the Soul King, as soon it touches it, all the trembling disappears as as it seems Ukitake’s life force will aid in saving the Soul King. This chapter is suitably titled “Return of the God”, and you know exactly why!

Bleach 617 begins with an image of Aizen who has been restrained by a large number of seal on his body. We see Ukitake scream as Mimihagi and it’s hand appears from his eyes and mouth. It goes all the way to the sky as we notice that the quaking has stopped.

Yhwach notices that it’s calmed down, asking what has just happened. Out of nowhere, Kamikake appears and holds the body of the Soul King imprisoned in the solid block as Kamikake tries to prevent everything from collapsing. Yhwach asks if this is how it’s gone, to have him miss such a thing with his eyes.

He asks if this is actually the Soul King himself, shouting asking why the right arm of the Soul King is meddling in such affairs. Asking if the attachment he has with the Soul Society causing him to protect it all. We see Ukitake on the floor with his face covered with the black substance.

Soi fon asks how long it’ll last, as she mentions that she doesn’t think he will become the substitute Soul King, and that bringing stability will consume his life force. How long will he has she asks, to which Urahara doesn’t have any idea since he has never seen the Kamikake before.

During this time they must find a way to help him out as he does his own job. They need to get to the Royal Palace as soon as possible. Elsewhere, we see Ukitake in front of a number of holes which correspond to the number of seals on Aizen. Ukitake asks if he can even talk using reiatsu.

Ukitake has a number of keys, to which he’s been given permission to use three of them. He will first release one for his mouth.Urahara notices that the gate they’re using is dematerialising due to the fact that they don’t have enough reiatsu. They explain that Ukitake has a lot of reiatsu and that he used to store it all.

They dont have any hope when the others appear in their shihakusho, they’re given an orb and get in. Mayuri also appears and looks down on them, then jumps down to them. Mayuri figures out that he’s trying to accumulate everyone’s reiatsu to try and forge the gate.

If they need a lot of reiatsu then all they need to do is get a amplification machine, which Mayuri seems to have. They go ahead and it, the gate begins to form. Ukitake unseals his mouth as he mentions that instead of talking through reiatsu, he should be able to use his mouth now.

He’s been sealed for around 2 years, and not talking during this time will probably not affect him. To which Aizen speaks mentioning that he’s not been affected at all. Ukitake quickly realises that he’s only unsealed his mouth when Aizen begins to walk, talk and see him! Aizen has been fully unsealed! Aizen asks if he’s shocked, and how he has two more keys to go! Bleach 617 ends with Aizen breaking loose all on his own, and Ukitake only using one key!

WOW! Such a magnificent episode, it’s awesome to finally see Aizen in such a crazy state and he looks magnificent in that he’s half sealed and has somewhat an eye patch. I can’t wait to see him in his new look! I really can’t wait for next week’s Bleach 618!

    well is pretty funny how weak the reiatsu of all rest captains and vice-captains combined together when once Ukitake is out from giving his reiatsu then the gate is dematerializing due to the fact that they don’t have enough reiatsu…but its pretty amazing how Ukitake was…and it show how big and strong his reiatsu are…

      Thats true, but remember most of the other captains have been fighting their own battles. We haven’t seen Ukitake fight once, the others are still slowly recovering. I’m glad that Mayuri showed up at such a critical moment, especially since Urahara was at such a point where he didn’t know what else to do. Mayuri really saved him from embarrassment.

        well like Nanao said, even Ukitake has not been fighting any Sternritter in 2nd invasion, he still keep using his own reiatsu every second, every time, every day, or in other words he is kept using his reiatsu all of time as long as he still alive just because to support his weak body which the rest of captains and vice-captain didn’t. Also he already consumed huge of his reiatsu when he casting the Kamikake’s Shadow back then when he meet with Kyoraku. Well like people said just don’t judge book by its cover, even Ukitake is the person who hate engage in fight, most peacefully man, and have a weak body, it doesn’t mean he is not strong as Kyoraku are. Yamamoto said both of them are equal..

      Aizen could have escaped at any time, however over the 2 years, he must have been meddling and controlling everything from there. He must have some kind of contacts here and there. Plus using Reiatsu talking method, he could have been talking to anyone else. Which raises the questions, who could that be, possibly Yhwach himself?

        I highly disagree on the last part, but I’m sure that Shunsui has something up his sleeve. Most likely it’ll be a bluff tactic since he can’t beat Aizen. Either way, he’s probably confident that Aizen will help out now that the Soul King is dead.

        Yeah agreed, I’m sure he’ll try and recruit Aizen, even if it’s temp. And use his abilities to gamble some kind of plan. Probably remove a few years from his sentence for helping out. Aizen will most likely want to join the fun, but it’ll be hard to tell which side he’s truly on. From what I know, he’ll try to piss off Ichigo, the other captains and even Yhwach. They’ll all hate him, but need his help to battle their opponents. Aizen I guess is one of the key players here.

I personally don’t see Aizen living through this arc, but hopefully he’ll end with a bang. Landing a critical hit on Bach (I’m already so used to the old translation of his name) or maybe giving Ichigo his final power up. That would definitely be pretty awesome.

We still have Jugram and Uryuu, which is apparently the next heir? So he’ll be the next Quincy King, similar to Ukitake, the next Soul King. If this is how it goes, it’ll be interesting.

Aizen kept his calm for far longer. I’d definitely argue that Aizen is still the strongest villain by a large margin. His illusions simply cannot be stopped and thanks to Yhwach’s many limitations, I don’t see him faring too well here. For plot reasons, Aizen will ultimately have to die, but not before he deals many critical hits to the franchise. Ichigo will end up as the victor, reject the Soul King title and decide to keep on working as a substitute shinigami over on Earth.

                    Aizen has always been the Bleach antagonist. His time is up, Yhwach is up next and he is way better than Aizen. I see a different outcome that so many people don’t think is gonna happen. And I don’t believe a previous villan will be stronger than a current one. That’s not how writing works. The Almighty is way more powerful than Aizen’s illusions. If he took on Ichibei, he would lose. Yhwach didn’t lose. So that’s what I think.

                      We definitely disagree on Yhwach’s character, both in power levels and overall likability as I find Aizen to also be much cooler. I really don’t think Ichibei could even hold a candle to Aizen. He wouldn’t be able to see or react to Aizen’s attacks as well as his high speed regeneration. As for an old villain being stronger than the new one, it happens all the time. Just look at One Piece. Mihawk appeared at around volume 3-6 and he’s still stronger than almost all of the villains in the current arc…and it’s been around 15 years since that point! There are many other examples to that as well so it’s not about how the writing works. If you were to follow such unspoken rules so carefully, it would result in predictable and repetitive stories. The villain doesn’t always need to be stronger, he/she just needs to add some drama or excitement to the story. It can be done through other means than with power and I would say that Kubo has mainly been using shock value for this arc. Most of the characters aren’t as impressive as the Espada although some of the Quincy villains lives up to the rep.

                      You must not have seen Ichibei fight. His abilities allow him cripple your powers and make you weak. How are Aizen’s illusions supposed to counter Ichimonji’s ink? I don’t see that at all. If you think Ichibei Is Weaker Than Aizen than you are dead wrong in my opinion. He can erase all the powers he gained from the Hogoyku. Sure, illusions are cool, but seeing the future is way better. Plus, the Espada are fewer than the Sternritter, Kubo have way more time to improve Them than the Sternritter. But unlike the Espada, many Sternritter have proven to be very powerful, plus, no Arrancar can match the Royal Guard, but the Quincy can. Enter Elite Guard. Yhwach is just better, and I guess I’m the only one that thinks that.

Aizen won’t die unless they use the Dragon Balls to take his immortality. Yhwach’s ability to see the future doesn’t guarantee victory, there’re somethings that he can see that he’ll be powerless too, I see flaws. Latest antagonist doesn’t always mean strongest antagonist. Feel like they met before this arc, when they meet its going to be epic.

    Heh heh heh, Aizen lives! His debut was everything that I could have hoped as he already unlocked all of the seals. That’s definitely pretty impressive and he’s got his powers at the ready. Bleach is definitely getting ready now and the chapter was pretty slow paced, but the last scene made it all worth it. Bach’s limitations are already becoming apparent as his “All Seeing Eyes” actually aren’t all seeing. Whether Aizen or Ichigo defeats him, the Hype is certainly going to be real. I’m going to have to alternate between this and Smash Bros in the upcoming weeks to keep myself from exploding with hype.

I think it was apparent that Yhwach’s eye was never all seeing, it’s most likely just something he can view in his radius, not something far away, it’s more of a gimmick of sorts. At one part, did Yoruichi’s invisible deadly threads thing just get destroyed by Yhwach’s shouting at the Kimikake?

Aizen doesn’t work with Quincy cause he doesn’t have much knowledge about them. He, like all other Shinigami, thought the Quincy were gone, until he saw Masaki. Sense he focuses on Hollows. So I see him being somewhat nervous about joining Yhwach. I don’t believe Yhwach was ticked at all, only his time perception. If you are a threat to Yhwach, he definitely has plan to deal with them

                      At the same time, it does make sense to send your strongest after the weakest. Think of it like this, if you send your strongest against their strongest, there will definitely be a chance that your side will lose the fight or that he will at least be gravely injured and easy pickings for the next fighter. Since the Quincies have a pretty big army it makes sense to send the strongest fighter after the weaker ones for guarenteed wins that will still cripple the heroes.

                      That being said, I’m pretty confident that Aizen dislikes Quincies and simply wouldn’t root for them on principal. He wants to destroy the Soul King so their goals briefly alligned, but he is still a Soul Reaper. I don’t see him being nervous about joining Bach. It’s simply not in his nature and especially since Bach was acting as if Aizen would work for him. Aizen is a subordinate to nobody and even now, his decision will reside on the fact that it’s on his terms.

                      You must think a war potential doesn’t mean much. Gremmy Thoumeaux is the strongest Sternritter. Not Including The Elite Guard. That’s true about he fights though. If Gremmy didn’t imagine himself a monster, he would have killed Zaraki. Maybe.

                      Its weird that Aizen doesn’t consider Quincy to research. Its pretty obvious that the Quincy are connected to the Soul King If Yhwach Is The Son And That Quincy can’t forgive the Soul King. If joining Yhwach isn’t in his agenda, than he hasn’t changed from his arrogant attitude when he lost the Winter War. I don’t see him fighting along side Ichigo if he is still this narcissistic. His arrogance will lead him to fight Yhwach alone and lose.

                      Why would his arrogance have left him? Aizen is still as proud and boastful as he always was. He took down all of the Captains teaming up and owned Ichigo and the backup squad for quite a while. He only lost because the Hogyoku rejected him at the last moment. I was not impressed with the War Potentials from the start to be honest. Gremmy’s powers were disappointing and I’d say that Bazz B was far stronger. Mayuri likes doing research, Aizen just did some briefly with the Vizared to test something and then he was set. Just as the Soul King is his sworn enemy so are the Quincies. Also, as I mentioned, Bach would never treat him like an equal. Aizen doesn’t join, he simply commands. I’d love to see him fight Bach one on one, but the result would likely be flipped….

Yhwach knew they would defeat him, so he had his Elite Guard take them on. Also, if all the Shinigami go up to the Royal Realm to fight Yhwach, he would waste so many of them it’s crazy. As for Gremmy, he is the strongest but very arrogant. Bazz-B? Hell no! Of any Sternritter is better than Gremmy It Is Liltotto Lamperd. She is way better than so many Sternritter. True the Quincy are his enemies. But Leaning About The Quincy is why Kisuke is smarter than Aizen.

                      With the Hogyoku, he would have decimated Squad Zero. We’ve already seen that those guys were all hype. FGT Ichigo and Aizen at that point are still the strongest characters in the series. Bach probably would have lost if he had been fighting all of Squad Zero so it’s good that he brought in the backup. That being said, the backup did take out most of the minions so the Squad Zero guys weren’t that tough. Lilitto’s the zombie girl right? I would definitely not say that she was one of the stronger ones and would place Bambi ahead of her. At least Bambi perminantely dealt with the dog Captain and finally wrote him out of the series. Bazz took out Hitsugaya, Liltotto just used her zombies, but she wouldn’t have had any good ones if not for the other Quincy. Aizen’s much smarter than Kisuke. Kisuke didn’t even know about the right hand of the Soul King when random peasants did. This guy’s legend was apparently well known, but Kisuke didn’t know it. He’s decently smart, but nowhere near Aizen level. Aizen planned everything out over 100 years in advance, now that’s genius!

                      So butterfly Aizen would be okay being inked by Ichimonji? He would be okay with Having half his Reiyoku and physical capabilities cut in half? Ichimonji would take away his ability to evolve, than his Bankai would make him an ant and kill him. So ya. Aizen would not defeat the Soul King. And nether would final Getsuga Ichigo. He couldn’t counter Ichimonji’s ink. People need to except that Kubo has shown characters already stronger than them.

                      I can’t accept that without legitamite feats. His air brush is only useful if it hits and likewise with his abilities cut in half. His ability to evolve could not be taken away as it was literally the Hogyoku that was evolving him. Are you actually saying that Aizen and Ichigo could not destroy the Soul King? A stab effortlessly defeated him. The Soul King can’t even move, much less think. It’s completely and utterly powerless until proven otherwise. The Quincies are much stronger than the Fullbringers, but I can’t say much else for most of them. Kubo just can’t top Arc 2 and I think he’s starting to realize that, which is why he’s bringing Aizen back.

Her Schrift is weird but powerful, she has amazing speed, durability, and endurance. I see her being eay better than Gremmy, not Bazz-B. Also, Aizen said Kisuke is the only person who is smarter than him in the Soul Society. Plus, has Aizen even mentioned Mimihagi? Nope. If Kisuke didn’t even know about Mimihagi, than I highly doubt Aizen did. And Kisuke only heard of Mimihagi, he didn’t know it was connected to the Soul King.

                      Wait, you think that she is that tough? When did Kubo even imply it? She ate a character who was already dying, but that’s not very impressive. She’s done almost literally nothing on screen! She’s the definition of a hype character at the moment. I do agree that she can likely destroy Gremmy, but she has nothing that suggests that it would even be a close fight with Bazz B. The guy who fought Soi Fon and the one who fought Byakuya would likely be a lot stronger than her. Likewise with Bambi. There’s always the chance that she will get a fight soon, but it’s slim so she didn’t get many feats. As for Aizen saying that…all for the hype. In literal smartness, like textbook knowledge, Urahara may know more, but factor in combat intelligence and cunning, then it’s not even close.

                      So Aizen doesn’t have the Hogoyku anymore? It’s in his chest if I remember. So Ichimonji would cover Hogoyku in ink, and it’s ability to evolve Aizen would stop. Because it’s ability is to make a person go to their fullest extent. But how can it counter Ichimonji If It Can’t Evolve anymore? Of if Hogoyku is covered in ink, Aizen will forget it’s name. And if it’s name is forgotten it’s power is as well. So ya, I don’t see Hogoyku Aizen defeating Ichibei.

                      The Hogyoku isn’t a simple item to be countered. It seems to be alive to an extent and covering it with the ink won’t work. The Hogyoku can keep going until it doesn’t want to go anymore, that’s just how powerful it is. It can’t simply stop. Again, the ink has to hit Aizen to make him forget his name and I have a feeling that it would be tougher for an evolved being to forget. Ichibei doesn’t have the speed to keep up with Aizen and he would be completely lost with the illusions.

It’s a great speed feat to be sure, but I consider Aizen to be faster than Bach and I don’t believe that Ichibei could pull the same stunt on him. Again, the Hogyoku is at a higher level of power than Ichibei. Similar to how the ink wouldn’t work on Bach now that he’s the Almighty, it wouldn’t work on the Soul King or the Hogyoku. Nothing can stop it from evolving. Ichibei was probably the best Squad Zero member and he did fight so I give him props for that, but he can’t beat Aizen. Been nice debating with you as well =)

                      I do believe she is that strong. You think she has no feats? So shrugging off a Vollständig enhanced Burner Finger 1 from Bazz-B isn’t impressive? Or figuring op Byakuya in Bankai with Meninas, Robert, Candice, and NaNaNa. And her and Meninas are the only ones standing with only moderate injures, while Robert, Candice, and NaNaNa are defeated? Or PePe Waccabrada used The Love on Meninas, and have her used her full power and decked her? Than She Defeated Her With On New Injures? Than she killed Pepe with her Vollständig, and he was in his Vollständig, and he only had moderate injures from Zombie Kensei? And she was smart and fast enough to dodge and save Giselle from Auswählen? Really, Bazz-B defeating Toshiro is okay. But Toshiro Is Like One Of The Weakest Captains. He is onto stronger than Mayuri. Bazz-B fighting Renji is impressive, but he wasn’t fighting Rukia either. Just Renji. So she very fast, durable, and has amazing endurance and you think Bazz-B and As Nodt are stronger than her? The same As Nodt who couldn’t do anything in his Vollständig against op Byakuya in Shikai? Really I only see BG9 being as strong as her. But Bazz-B, Meninas, and As Nodt? Nope. Kubo was showing us how strong she is, as much as people choose to ignore it.

                      That’s a lot of text, but look at it closely. Over half of the feats that you just showed involve her teaming up with others or beating up on severely wounded opponents. Her only real feat is blocking Bazz B’s attacks. The rest (Like surviving against Byakuya) don’t really hold up since we don’t know the circumstances. Maybe was attacking from a distance instead of approaching so that she wouldn’t take damage. Also..Pepe only had moderate injuries? Are you kidding…he was Severely Wounded and he already knew that his time was quickly approaching. It’s why he couldn’t even try to escape. BG-9, As Nodt, and Bazz B have got this. I don’t recall who Meninas is by name so I can’t comment on that. Kubo is giving her hype, but we know about Kubo and his hype. (CoughSoulKingDiedInOneShotCough) It’s not so much ignoring as waiting for feats. She simply hasn’t impressed me as of yet.

                      I do agree that Hitsugaya is fairly weak as far as Captains go, but it was a full fight and we got to see Bazz B’s full abilities without fighting off screen or being interrupted. Renji is probably as strong as Rukia at this point if not stronger so fighting him is pretty impressive. Not Extremely impressive, but impressive nonetheless.

I remember when she and Meninas fought Byakuya, she mentioned he got a lot stronger and if As Nodt really defeated him. Cause we still don’t know who Rukia fought in the first invasion. I believe she fought Liltotto. The Sternritter said “Turning your back on the enemy? You must really be underestimating me.” Than Rukia is defeated. Liltotto seems like the logical choice to say that sense she is very smart. You think getting punched out by Kensei is more damaging to PePe Than Liltotto taking all the injures she got from two powerful Sternritter and a Captains Bankai? I think not! His injures were not so bad, he is just weak. And true we haven’t seen her fight one on one yet, that’s why I think she will fight Rukia alongside Bazz-B vs Renji.

That doesn’t make a lot of sense if you seen Lil get thrown into buildings by ichigo, pierced by bazz and still survived Byakuya while Robert did not. That is basically all that matters. She mocked them! I don’t see how this is even debatable. I am most certain that if Candice would have never fought ichigo she would have too survived byakuya. Candice has an overall elemental advantage than Robert/Nana but she was clearly wrecked by Ichigo and Bazz which ain’t no telling did something to her endurance. Hell even Meninas is stronger than all three of them. She mocked them too!

Probably because he saw them as a threat, wel, atleast some of them to which he thought his zanpaktou abilities could rather make them powerless against him…but for me i think the base Aizen(without the Hogyoku) wasn’t as powerful as the senior Captains(Yamamoto, Unohana, Kyoraku & Ukitake) or Ishiin Kurosaki, thou i would say that he was on spal with the likes Yoruichi & Kisuke, & as for the Evolved Aizen(with Hogyoku), the only one who i think has the power to truly take him on(& actually being able to kill him) is Ichibei, has for others, it will take a combined effort, but still i dont see them actually being able to kill him cause of his immortality..more like achieving what kisuke, Yoruichi, Ishiin & Ichigo were able to pull, but Ichibei, i actually see him being able to kill Aizen, even with the Hogyoku, given his abilities..but thats just me(as Nick likes to put it), i can understand Yhwach miraculously overcoming Ichibei only because he is the son of the Soul KING & all but Aizen, hell No! Ichibei is probably the most powerful shinigami & given his ability u can tell that he knows the power of every Shinigami out there..From where it stands now, i see only the Soul King & Yhwach being above him..

    Unless Aizen able to retrieve his zanpakutou and show us his bankai, otherwise the battle will be like boom bang, blasting here and there, it will be another boring fight for me. I will feel more anticipating for Shunsui and Joshiro’s bankai rather than Aizen (fused with Hōgyoku).
    And I have another doubt, if Shunsui really plan to ask Aizen to battle for them, why was it he was only permitted to use 3 keys? I don’t think Aizen can beat Juha Bach without releasing his full potential.
    Aizen is an interesting character… As Yamamoto said before, he never met with anyone (or Shinigami?) that is stronger than him, not even Aizen. I think Yamamoto is indeed stronger than Aizen, and that’s why Aizen created Wonderweiss just to seal off Yamamoto’s Ryujin Jakka. But the question is, why is it Aizen that strong? He’s not a hybrid like Ichigo (Quincy + Shinigami), and he’s not one of the oldest captain generation from Shunsui, Joshiro, and Unohana, when and how did he attain his superior power?
    And he seems to know a lot about the soul king, could that be the reason behind why Shunsui thinks he need to find him?
    I’m guessing, Kubo may spend some time on Aizen’s background…

      Couldn’t agree more. I think Aizen will die by Yhwach, and Kubo will show us his last before he dies. That’s just what I think will happen

    I dont believe people under estimate Aizen‘s power like that, I mean if you all watched the same Winter war arc as me, you realise that Aizen‘s zanpaktou ability could work the same way as the Almighty‘s All seeing eyes.He made 3 captains and the visored attack Hinamori without them realising it, he then finished all of them in matter of minutes and even then he was not using the Hogyoku.The same hogyoku created Wonderwise who was able to seal of the most powerful zanpaktou in existence.In his final upgrade,Aizen‘s attack was able to overpower Ichigo‘s blut vene and burn his arm which even Ywach‘s sword was unable to do.I dont think Ichibei could hold a candle to Aizen.Ywach also recognises this power thats why he went to recruit him personally and thats why he could not kill him like he tried to do to Ichigo when he turned down his offer.Besides if Ywach is indeed almighty, why didnt he see Aizens ultimate release?Also the last time I checked,the hogyoku had rejected Aizen as its master yet currently he is overpowering the seal placed on him and with a genius level intellect, id say Ywach has met his match.Aizen would finally be able to replace the Soul King.

      So your comparing Aizen’s greatest form to when Yhwach fought Ichigo And He Wasn’t Even At Full power? First of all, his illusions are powerful, but they do have weakest. Yhwach’s Schrift The Almighty can see the future and allows Yhwach to counter all abilities that he comes across and they are rendered useless. Comparing that to Aizen is like comparing day and night. They are not completely different levels of power.

        And FYI, Aizen was using the Hogoyku to make himself stronger when he defeated Harribel, 4 injured Captains and 4 injured Visord. He reached his limits as a Shinigami when fighting Isshin, and the Hogoyku gave him an upgrade. The only time he was shown using his own strength was when he defeated Sajin, Renji, and Ichigo.

      According to Ichigo, he believes Aizen was so strong and had such unique abilities that he was always alone and that’s why he is the way he is. I guess he felt sorry for him when he defeated him.

    shinobi, no one is underestimating Aizen, im just pointing out for what he truly is, Yeah! he put quite a show at fake karakura town, even i was mesmerized then by his shear display, but lets face the obvious fact that he failed in his plans, he didn’t even reach the Royal Guard, yet people compare him with the likes Yhwach SMH! Yamamoto could basically defeat base Aizen with just his shikai, Aizen didn’t even want to engage Yamamoto fearing Ryu jin jakka destructive power would hinder his evolvement, in other words, he feared he would been killed before he got the chance to evolve(reaching his limits), even thou still at one point, Yama was bare handed & called out on Aizen to face him with his zanpaktou already sealed by wonderweiss, he still had to relie on wonderweiss to atleast weaken him..he thout he could trick the oldman with Kyoka Suigetsu when he was caught by the hand but the old man Yama could tell the difference between his illusion & actual self by reiatsu…y do people miss all this!? the only reason i dont look down much on Aizen is bcoz he is one with the Hogyoku which gives him immortality,regeneration & evolving capability, which also the Hogyoku has proven to give him when it desire..As for Aizen being the way he is(“strong” as “rahmaru” puts it), i think it has got to do with the actual fact that he wanted to be strong & was working on it inorder to be the strongest, only to find out that they are limits to how strong one can become(shinigami that is) & because of that, he worked on other ways to make himself stronger by experimenting with hollows & later cameup with the Hogyoku..but even before then you could tell that both he & Gin where still working on making themselves even stronger in hiding, what motivated him to be/become the way he is, dat i truly have no clue, but like some of u pointed out in here, we could really use a flashback on Aizen’s past & y he was the way he is, i hope Kubo can grant us that, as Aizen heroically dies in the end coz i see it somehow heading to that..

        That’s so what I believe! Unohana also could tell the difference between Aizen’s Reiatsu and his Shikai’s Reiatsu. She did that when he faked his death. Ya As strong as he was a Shinigami, , he wanted to be stronger. Of course Yamamoto, Unohana, Zaraki and Royal Guard are stronger than him. I see him dying by Yhwach’s Hand.

      Actually Yama never said he can distinguish Kyoka Suigetsu’s Shikai from the real stuff, he only said he knows that’s not illusion because Aizen’s sword stabbed him, and he felt Aizen’s reiatsu within his body, that’s all. If an Aizen illusion was simply standing in front of Yama there’s no way to be sure Yama could tell the difference because that was never stated. And it really doesn’t matter how Yama got defeated, all it matters that he got rekt, and Aizen was the one who rekt him. Also, Yama would’ve never been able to kill Aizen because of Kyoka Suigetsu, however I don’t think Aizen would’ve killed him either if he fought the old dude with his zanpakuto’s abilities untouched, that’s why he wanted to avoid Ryujin Jakka’s power, not because he knew he was going to get killed, but because ke knew he couldn’t kill him (and Yama was literally the only character he intended to kill, besides Gin when the time came and the Soul King). Aizen’s main strength is his brain, and his brain, I’m pretty sure is bigger than any other character’s brain 🙂

      I also feel that Aizen is going to die or something, helping Ichigo and company. Imo he was never truly evil, he only did what he did “for the greater good”, whatever that is since the Soul King puzzle is still missing. Also, I’m thinking Aizen sort of “trained” Ichigo untill their final battle, he could’ve killed Ichigo anytime during the manga, yet he did not, stuff is missing, but I’m sure we’ll get a badass closure of the manga and a reasoning for everything that happened. Wonder what’s Aizen bankai, since his shikai was like it was… OP, nerf!

        That’s interesting. Kubo actually stated that opponents who are stronger than Aizen can tell the difference between Aizen’s Reiatsu and his Shikai’s Reiatsu. Yamamoto is stronger than him. And if he did fight Yamamoto had one he would have definitely been killed. Unohana figured out his clone body and his real body. Sure she didn’t know she was being hypnotize, but she knew the difference. I also see Aizen dying, but with his narcissistic and arrogant attitude, I’m not so sure he will team up with Ichigo against Yhwach. I see him fighting Yhwach alone and being killed for his own arrogance.

    Ywach also had to steal Yamamoto‘s bankai inorder to face him so I dont see how that makes him stronger than Aizen.Besides the hogyoku made him merge with his zanpaktou which is something only him and Ichigo have ever done making them stronger than Yama-ji. Besides if Aizen had finished off Ichigo ealier he would have probably killed the soul king.
    Besides some obvious stuff like Aizen has more reatsu now than he did before,he is immortal and has powered up as seen when one seal gave him back ability to walk and speak, what do you think he will be capable off when fully unsealed. He still has the best regeneration ability than anyone in the series so tell me how Ywach is going to cut him in half and stealing hogyoku from him is definately out of the question.
    Also Ywach‘s All seeing eyes aren‘t flawless as they cant see everything,im pretty sure he doesnt know everything or why would he try to recruit Aizen if he knew he would just turn him down,also we all know either Aizen or Ichigo is going to defeat him,why then didn‘t he finish them off before he invaded the SK palace?
    Aizen‘s complete hypnosis tricks your eyes and Ywach‘s power relies on his eyes anyone seeing the irony here? All Aizen has to do is cast his complete hypnosis and let Ywach think they are fighting till he has used all his power and learn how his power works.If Ywach tries to see the future won‘t he still be under complete hypnosis hence just see what Aizen wants him to see.
    Also the royal gaurd don‘t have as much reatsu as Aizen,remember when Ichigo‘s swords were being reforged,it was said no sword has ever produced that much steam hence ichigo‘s current reatsu even beats that of Ichibei, and Aizen went toe to toe with him which shows the royal gaurd are a bunch of weaklings hence should not even be compared to Aizen who is a god in his own right.

      Okay first of all, the only way a Quincy can steal a Shinigami’s is if they are as strong or stronger than the Shinigami. As Nodt, BG9, Bambietta, Cang Du, and Driscoll are all as strong of not stronger than the Shinigami they stole from. Yhwach is clearly at Yamamoto’s level and most likely stronger. While Aizen was never at that level. And The Almighty is not about his sight, he sees the future in his head, and his Schrift comes up with a way to negate any abilities he comes across. Also, I don’t believe Aizen is immortal anymore. If that’s true, Yhwach can just use Saint Altar to steal it. So Yhwach is stronger, and that’s my opinion on this subject. And if Yhwach knew all five Royal Guard would defeat him, than its pretty obvious they could defeat Aizen with the Hogoyku. They didn’t even consider him a threat to bother come down. But with Yhwach They Did. That’s Kubo telling us Yhwach is better than Aizen in my opinion.

    Thats also true Nick, not only did she notice that smething was off with aizen’s fake corpse, she also was quick to realise straight away when Aizen revealed to her about his true zanpaktou abilities, that even back then that display of aizen showing his zanpaktou ability as a water type zanpaktou that uses mist to confuse enemies was actually an hypnosis ritual, i bet she could actual tell that something was off with that since then, only that she had no reason to doubt aizen then, & the way she identified/noticed that so quickly, its has if she sort of came across such sort of an ability back in her good old days when she was till a bloodrusty Kenpachi…She also was quick to realise that Kaname Tousen was in it with Aizen since Aizen’s zanpaktou abilities couldnt work on him( i guess thats y Aizen needed him by his side(Kaname) since his zanpaktou abilities couldnt work on him, & for no other reason, therefore eliminating him as a threat)

      Yup that’s what I’m saying Josephia! 😉 If Unohana was weaker than Aizen, she wouldn’t have been able to figure out what she did. I’m sure she did fight something like that back than. After all, the only other illusion type Zanpakuto Is Shinji’s Sakanade, and Kouga’s Muramasa. True Aizen took in Kaname because he was blind, that’s why when he turned good after he lost to Sajin and Hisagi, he killed him by causing hid Hollowfication to kill him.

      Sajin is technically alive. He is a wolf after he defeated Bambietta. But Kubo killed him off as a character by turning him into a wolf. So he can no longer be a Shinigami or the 7th Division Captain. Kira was killed by Bazz-B when he fired his fire Heilig Pfeil. He hasn’t been seen sense and it’s been like a week sense the first invasion happened. Toshiro was killed by Giselle and she turned him into a Zombie on the first day of the second invasion. I don’t believe Mayuri was able to cure him of The Zombie because he was a zombie for over a day, while Rangiku, Kensei, and Rojuro were zombies for a couple of hours. So I think Mayuri saved those three. Plus when zombie Toshiro came to fight Mayuri, Giselle changed his uniform to a Wandenreich one. I think that was Kubo showing us as the reader that Toshiro is dead

    WHAT IF… Aizen this whole time was playing with Ichigo when he was using his Final Getsuga Tenshou?
    Maybe he didn’t actually get sealed, and this whole thing is played by Aizen with his Kyoya Suigetsu’s illusion ability. Holy crap nerd-gasm..
