It's a power boost. Though he looks like a savage beast now. I wonder if he can revert back under normal conditions or if he's stuck like that (like the Hulk or something). Can't think of any character in the series with as much raw power as Zaraki now. It's a pretty suitable Bankai, didn't expect anything else in all honesty.

Remind me, have we seen Byakuyas strength after the As Nodt assfucking he received? Did he get the same caliber of boost as Rukia or none at all? He used his shikai more like a Bankai or something but was that it?

>>
>>139756667

All his fights have been off screen since then, except when he manhandled hisagi with his bare hands.
>>
>>139756667
Byakuya was probably close to his maximum Bankai potential, but his Shikai had been neglected. Now his Shikai is much closer to his Bankai power level.

Rukia and Renji were much less advanced, so they both got huge boosts.

Its not just that, its Zaraki unleashed. For the first time he's going all out. No eyepatches, no "I'm gonna use one hand because otherwise this would be boring". No "I'm fighting in my sealed state, but I'm still gonna kick your ass". This is finally Zaraki in his truest form. He's finally unleashed his potential and become a demon. I would'nt really say its a power boost. Its more like all his limitations have been stripped away; everything that was holding him back from savoring true battle has finally been removed, and it is gorgeous.
>>
>>139757486
fucking this
but I bet that he will attack Hitsugaya and Byakuya at least once
I mean, he's like a beast now
>>
>>139757386
good luck trying to use it, this really is a Bankai only Zaraki can use. Its a physical augmentation and a removal of limits; if anyone else tried using it they'd burn themselves out so fast they wouldnt even have a chance to land a blow. Its really more like the 8 gates that Gai from Naruto uses than a Bankai, in the sense that it relies heavily on the user himself having an exceptionally strong body

>So, is his Bankai just a major power boost?

People that have fancy-shmancy Bankai powers are mostly those that are skilled with Kidō. In turn, those that have absolutely no skill with it (like Ichigo or Zaraki) get only massive straight power boost.
Which is fine by me, better to have him fighting at full power at all times than to have some kind of "warm up" mechanic that has already been done to death.

Kyoka Suigetsu is a 4-kanji phrase (yojijukugo) meaning "Mirror-flower, water moon," referring to that which can be seen but not touched, as a flower in a mirror and the moon in the water. Its power, generating illusions, alludes to this.

Is Zaraki really a Shinigami? His Bankai has more in common with Resureccion
>alters his physical appearance; we've seen Shinigami whose clothes change with their weapons, but this is probably the first time we've seen a Shinigami whose body was altered by releasing their Zanpakuto
>Most of his Bankai's power is concentrated in his body. The sword itself is just a really sharp meat cleaver; its the reverse of Ikkau's Bankai, where his weapon was meting most and had its own goddamn energy bar
>Loses his mind; I don't think we've ever seen a Bankai that actually altered its users mind. He has more in common with Hollows like Grimmjow and Yammy who became noticeably more bloodlusted when they released

I dont think he's a Hollow exactly, but he seems to have an awful lot in common with them from what we've seen in this chapter. Perhaps he's actually a legit demon who acquired Shinigami powers somehow; after all, the Bleach Hell Movie confirms the existence of demons from Hell in the Bleach universe

What if his vollstandig was the wings he grew before getting sliced in half?

>>139761479
Nah, Tensa Zangetsu only offered speed stats and black Getsuga Tenshou's. Whatever sword Zaraki's using gave him the full package; speed, strength, cutting ability and probably enhanced durability

This entire post is literally everything that is wrong with Zaraki as a character. The only facets of him that are even remotely interesting are the fucking speculations and headcanons about him. By himself, he's just a fucking 1D, RIP AND TEAR boring piece of shit.

>cut

This is the entire summation of his "character development" throughout the entire series. Why does Kubo keep shoving him down our throats if he doesn't even do anything with him at all? This faggot is literally an edgy fifth grader's OC in manga form.

You're mostly right, but there are some nuances to him as a character that make people like him besides the fact that he's an edgy berserker
>Has a code: Will only fight opponents that can challenge him and will kill only when they insist of continuing to fight after he's grown bored
>Lonely wandering ronin: Its a trope, sure, but people love the mystery of a lonely master swordsman traveling the world in search of a good death
>Untapped secret potential: We've finally come to the end of Zaraki's journey. We've seen hi grow from a captain who didn't know or care about his soul cutter to someone who has reclaimed his past and has fulfilled his full potential. Its not a deep character arc by any means, but hey.
>Yachiru: Brings out another dimension to his character that isn't just murder n' chill.

He could've been developed a bit better, but Kubo knew Zaraki fans arent the kind of people who write posts on 4chan about character development and all that shite
>>
>>139760366
true, but lets be honest, Bankai Zaraki isn't exactly in the right state of mind to remember that. Maybe he'll use Kendo to finish the Miracle off without actually meaning to
>>
>>139762421

>His Bankai has more in common with Resureccion

My thoughts exactly.

It only makes him slightly more different than most, though. Bankai comes in all shapes, forms and sizes. Thinking anything beyond that is just your typical pseudo intellectual bullshit of a Level 5 reader wannabe.

Yeah, because their parents usually block those kind of sites, anon. Since Zaraki was written to be appreciated by chuuni faggots who get bullied relentlessly and dream their power being maximum like their heroes Broly and Zaraki.
>>
>>139762615

Honestly I wouldn't be surprised if Kubo just has "badass psycho captain" written next to his first character design sketches for Zaraki. He probably just planned for Zaraki to be a crazy-ass psycho murderer that would show readers how dangerous Soul Society can be. Was probably pretty suprised Zaraki wound up being one of the most popular characters in the series

Honestly his design is way too intricate for that; for instance, the hair bells to help his enemies sense his presence. Given how much development both he and Ichigo got from their encounter in Soul Society means Kubo knew exactly what he was doing with Zaraki.
>>
>>139764793

>So, is his Bankai just a major power boost?
I don't get why people are surprised by this. Look at the other two now-sidelined captains - their Bankai are "more flower petals" and "more ice"
Kenpachi's being "more rampant bloodlust and cutting people into tiny little pieces" makes perfect sense.
>>
>>139764762
He could "wind" the space around him, causing things to bend and twist and distort to redirect opponents and attacks. That's "Why-nd" the verb not "Win-d" the noun.
>>
>>139765015
Not only that, but it seems to mitigate Zaraki's biggest issue; the fact that he will unconsciously hold his own power back so he can enjoy the fight more.
>>
>>139764728
At least she had potential, anon. What does Zaraki have other than being a "mysterious nameless boy" who somehow effortlessly wounded the most insanely powerful combatant Shinigami who had never once been wounded in a thousand+ years and during any of her battles against Ywach in the first Quincy Wars? Will we ever even get an explanation for that other than "Japanese male in a shonen"?
>>
So a bit of a stretch here, but is it possible Yhwach and Ichigo's powers might end up resembling time stopping?
Fake Zangetsu stopped time to power up Ichigo against Kenpachi, and Mugetsu was described as cutting through time (might be bad translation).

We haven't seen a good bankai since Yama's and the only thing to look forward to are Yhwach's and Ichigo's abilities and fight.
I guarantee Kubo will fuck up Toofsy and Uryu somehow.

I never laughed so hard in my life at a manga panel. All this hype and buildup and Kubo's imagination is as shitty as Kenny's probably would for what his 'ultimate power' would be. The only way it could've been simpler is if it was his fists or a plain knife.

See that shape that's folding into his mouth?

Also the panel of him immediately after Gerard screaming is of his face which was yanking away something.

>>139767271
That's the thing. Physical. Most shinigami that are at level where thay can achieve Bankai, are at least competent at Kidō, and most of their Bankai is that magical stuff. Either summoning something (Kurotsuchi, Tōsen, Byakuya), amplifying their elemental power (Rukia, Yamamoto, Hitsugaya), or just doing weird shit in general (Kyōraku). Sometimes sword itself disappears, sometimes it stays behind unchanged, and just as often it transforms to be used as main means of fighting.

That being said, since most of "big stuff" around Bankai is caused by Kidō, and since both Zaraki and Ichigo absolutely suck at Kidō, in their cases Bankai has no fluff power, only sword to hit things with.
>>
>>139768485
there would be blood on his teeth then

It seems obvious to me that the size of the sword is irrelevant- he can cut things with the blade that isn't there.

It's a pretty straightforward extrapolation of what Yachiru did in her fight.
>>
>>139768533
So you're just going to ignore the fact he's biting a giant reiatsu giant impervious to most all attacks when he assumed that form, excluding when an actual weapon was used against him? It's probably not so easy to actually bite through him.
Considering the amount of strength Kenpachi displayed, you'd think another physical unarmed attack (the punch) would do something other than send the giant flying jaw intact, right?
Anyways you're just ignoring the form going into his mouth either way. And the panel after, and his sword not moving.

I'd be surprised if it weren't something somewhat similar. Remember that Yachiru is literally the sword (spirit) he's holding in his hand and the ability she used in battle was cutting before/after her own sword swings via two phantom creatures.

Being his zan spirit, that ability is his ability.

That's similar to what I'm thinking, but I feel like the answer is going to be more intricate than that. Zaraki's bond with Yachiru, now his sword, has enormous potential because of the strength of their relationship.
>>
>>139769274
He already had a powerup in the Royal Realm. As he told As Nodt, his Shikai can now control a greater amount of petals. I don't think we've seen him use Bankai since before then.

He destroyed 3 Sternritter with just his Shikai which is way more impressive than what Rukia and Renji did.
>>
>>139771036

The "monster" was Yama's Bankai, what it meant was probably that the last time it appeared was when Yama fought Yhwach, hence the "difficult situation", and his Bankai made it worse. Probably because it kills everyone in a 10 mile radius and summons the dead.
>>
Can kenpachi kill servants?
>>
>>139771675
That conversation happened before the First Blood War. The picture showed Yamamoto with Zanka no Tachi West. But Royd, when he had Yhwach's memories thought there was only Zanka no Tachi East.

Well we know that Yhwach gets stronger when takes the soul pieces back. So it stands to reason, that he would get weaker, if he sends the soul pieces out. We also know that he created 26 Sternritter for this exact purpose. Ichibee didn't knew about the Almighty, despite having the information from Yamamoto's fight with him during the First Blood War. And we know, that Yhwach gets older the more powerful and eviler he becomes. OMZ, how he looked 1000 years ago is younger than how Yhwach looked in Bazz-B's flashback.
>>
>>139772722

I think he had the Allmighty, i mean, you'd have to be stupid to willingly give away that power. We know from Toofsy that he had to keep his eyes closed until the 9 days of power ended because otherwise bad things would happen. So to me it's pretty hard to believe that he would give that power up, especially if he was going to war with Soul Society.

I think it's likely that he was weaker back then, but i'd assume he could still see into the future.
>>
>>139773095
I think Yhwach planned to invade Soul Society once he got the Almighty back. It was most likely just a temporal loss. But Yamamoto invaded before that could happen and thus Yhwach lost. Would also be a nice callback to the first invasion. Yamamoto originally planned to strike first, but Yhwach made that plan naught.

This is the kind of thing you have to expect from Bleach threads. They deserve their watermarked trash.

So if Yachiru was just his sword all along, what was the thing she was doing to fight that one Quincy guy?
>>
>>139776413
'training' for their big jobbing moment against Yhwach
>>
>>139776280
Gerard will most likely defeat Kenpachi. Question is more, who will defeat Gerard. The same happened with Shunsui and Yoruichi. And Gerard has the excuse of being the heart of the Soulking, the Miracle and the Hogyoku.
>>
>>139776564
her 'shikai' was just an extension of what she can do with Kenpachi's reiatsu.

Also anons have pointed out that her two companions resemble parts of Kenpachi's Shikai: Bone guy is the sword while Fluffy guy is the tassel at the end of the sword.
>>
guys, this red demons guy is the bankai. It's Yachiru's Stand

So Ichigo will gain Orihime's power and save Zaraki?
>>
>>139776413
Will probably become relevant in the second half of this arc. Ganju may teach Ichigo how to use his special Quincy powers. There is also his connection to Kukaku, Urahara and Isshin.
>>
>>139774231
Aizen's entire plan in the SS and HM arcs WASN'T done in order to invade the Royal Realm outright, it was an elaborate ruse to a) put Ichigo under Kyouka Suigetsu and b) power up Ichigo and lose to him so the Hougyoku could evolve him past Ichigo's level. Getting caught was part of his plan. He just has to lay low for a while in jail, wait for Ichigo to beat Bach who he can't beat directly because he can see through Kyouka Suigetsu, and then dispose of Ichigo who doesn't know he's under his illusion. Then keikaku doori, Soul King position up for the taking.

It doesn't work that way. He creates powers for them. They cultivate it for him and when they die, it goes back to him, making him even stronger. He doesn't get any weaker at all.
>>
>>139774231

When Aizen said "look" at Ichigo he never used the Shikai or said "Kyoka Suigetsu"
>>
>>139777238
He does get weaker if he can't get new souls. So the same may happen, if he gives part of his soul away. Removing part of your soul does weaken you. Look at what happened to Rangiku.
>>
>>139776594
>Kenpachi's fucking bankai not enough to beat somebody.
don't do this
>>
>>139777275
There is precedence for shinigami with Bankai to release their Shikai without the release command.
>>
>>139777467

Yeah but every shikai transforms the katana.
>>
>>139777431
Like Shunsui's, Mayuri's or Urahara's Bankai? The Bankai of a captain will almost never defeats the opponent, if he releases it for the first time.
>>
>>139777562

Komamura's, Yamamoto's and Hitsugaya's katanas don't change when they go Shikai.
>>
>>139777363
That makes even less sense. He was comatose for 999 years. It would've been impossible for him to revive if he required new souls all the time, while having no powers, couldn't think, and couldn't move.

Did you even read the early chapters of this arc?

>Mayuri's
of gotei Shinigami, Mayuri has used his bankai more than any other shinigami except Renji.
And it has NEVER beaten it's opponent.
>>
>>139774231
what does it matter if he said "look"
Ichigo is clearly looking away from him.
>>
>>139777606
Urahara's technically won it for him.

Also all of those bankai are gimmicks and one-trick ponies. Kenpachi's is pure consistent force.

Not trying to ride zaraki's dick but he's usually one of the captains that doesn't lose.
>>
Is Kenpachi the only shinigami who's bankai physically altered their body?
The only other one I can think of may be Rukia, if you count "freezing" as a physical alteration of the body.
>>
>>139778988

Komamura and Ginjou's changed their bodies, sort of, maybe.

Komamura's could've just been wolf magic, and Ginjou's changes could be attributed to his inner hollow.

Calling it now, one of three things will happen.

1. Gerard's permanently dead cause the masses seeing an enraged demon bankai Kenpachi removed all fear and thoughts that Gerard could/would survive, and since Gerard's miracles depend on the fears and thoughts of the masses, he can't bring himself back

2. 1 happens, but then someone, most likely Toshiro wonders if it's really over and that doubt lets Gerard perform a miracle and come back

3. No matter who doubts it or not, Gerard simply pulls off a miracle and instead of being a giant still, takes on a smaller size with all his strength and powers concentrated into it, and becomes like a more vengeful more biblical kinda thing where he can perform harmful "miracles" as he sees fit. Prepare for smiting, plagues, darkness, the earth swallowing people up, storms, blindness and holy fire
>>
>>139755477

I don't know. The last little bit with Ice/Brother and Hat/Cat going back and forth in a comedic way seems like he went back and read a few of his old volumes and saw the comedy parts he's neglected for like 8 years.

Honestly this.

How come all you faggots call this a Bankai? He didn't say it, Yachiru just hinted that this could be the power he needs, his bankai. He most likely just fucked up and half-assed it so he ended up with an incomplete form.

That explains why he has no intellect and it's just raw power/instinct since he's not in control because he fucked up.

It's certainly a power boost but I think it's incorporating Yachiru's shikai as well.
He cut through both Gerard's shield and face despite being nowhere near his face. If he had two "phantom slashes" each time he swung his sword, it would at all of deadliness to each attack, as well as account for the much larger range he seems to have.

She won't. That's not how her Zanpakuto works.

The reason Hyorinmaru is considered the strongest ice-elemental Zanpakuto is because it's basically the ice equivalent of Ryujin Jakka. Hyorinmaru is the only ice-element Zanpakuto that can alter the very weather itself. In terms of sheer attack radius and output, it greatly outperforms Sode-no-Shirayuki. It also allows for far greater control, and isn't a double-edged sword like Rukia's. Due to how Sode-no-Shirayuki works, it's literally impossible for it to exceed Hyorinmaru in terms of output.

Sode-no-Shirayuki alters the temperature of the user and then extends that to her surroundings. Its power comes purely from itself and its range is naturally small due to this. Hyorinmaru affects the surroundings directly and, according to Hitsugaya, can "utilize all of the water in the atmosphere". They're two very different things.

doesn't Kubo aborted hell because some shitty movie?

It's definitely going to be Aizen. I mean sure, we all know he's gonna pull another keikaku out of his ass, but I think it's going to be much bigger than we expect.
>>
>>139785688
Nah, it was because the movie writers threw out his original script, and made their own original script instead for the movie.

>>139784050
That would be fucking glorious.

Several people of course, but because of his size, and eventually his corpse, I can see Soifon using her shikai to make it disappear, or Hachi teleporting it somewhere else.

That's why he disowned that shit, since they fucked him over.

So /a/, ignoring the nature of users power levels and based on the abilities of a Sealed/Shikai/Bankai alone, what would you rate the top 10 zanpakuto?

So what you're saying is..

That all he's doing right now is using his zanpaktou correctly and he's become one with it as it shares it's power it invigorates him and changes his skin color but he hasn't even bankai'd yet right?

If they were, that was before Yhwach unlocked his Almighty.

Which means he sees everything now, even the war potentials

>>139786635
Jugram Haschwalth, while holding the power of the Almighty, wasn't able to predict one of uryuu's actions at one point though.. I think something like that happened.

They're probably the only five he's seen capable of truly defeating him, which is why he looks genuinely pressed in his fight with ichibe

In no order

Kyoka Suigetsu (just wish we'd see its bankai)

Ryūjin Jakka

Sode no Shirayuki

Shinsō

Suzumushi (if the space it creates in bankai is inescapable, like it creates its own infinite space on the inside so you can't just run out of its area)

Ichimonji

Katen Kyōkotsu

Hyōrinmaru

Suzumebachi

Senbonzakura
>>
>>139785564
Sode no Shirayuki can go to absolute zero though, which is pretty much the pinnacle of power for ice/cold based abilities. Imagine what she can do with it once she has actually trained with it.
>>
>>139750361
>his Bankai literally just makes him turn red

How does Kubo do it? How does the story manage to get more retarded with every passing chapter?

The powers have yet to be grasped by Haschwalth, not by Yhwach.

Well, alright then.
>>
>>139786972
oh that makes sense I guess..
>>
>>139786886
Sode no Shirayuki is basically an extremely cold block of ice. It can freeze anything it comes in direct contact with, but it could also potentially shatter itself. It can also only be active for a very short period of time.

Hyorinmaru's a weather control system with a high energy consumption rate, but it poses little risk to the user, is more versatile, has a far wider effect radius and has a longer active time than Shirayuki.

Sode no Shirayuki basically excels at one thing at a tremendous cost. Hyorinmaru is great at everything ice-related for far less cost. The biggest flaw with Shirayuki is that it absolutely needs to win in one strike. If it fails, it's hilariously wide open to a counterattack or even outright self destruction.

Basically, Hyorinmaru is Blizzard while Sode no Shirayuki is Sheer Cold.
>>
>>139787059
I doubt that Sode no Shirayuki is going to have huge downsides once she actually trains with it. She's had her bankai for an astronomically short amount of time.

1. Suzumebachi.

Pros: We are ignoring the reiatsu of the enemy.
Cons: One would need to be as fast as Soifon to make it best zanpakutou.

There may be more to it yet. Wait for next chapter.

>>139787121
His Bankai makes it where he can no longer hold back and can finally go all out.

As he becomes a true Berserker

This is important since he constantly holds himself back in countless ways that he can't turn off even while trying. In order to go all out he has to become a mad beast with a hatchet.

Major power boost also

>>139786970

I am pretty sure that when you are top 3 the whole poor thing goes out the window. Remember that Bleach still sells pretty well.

What? Did you miss the whole chapter where the only highlight was the visored almost doing something for once? Shinji was the first one dropped, and then later picked up by Hinamori. The others have more chance coming back before SHinji does.
