I think a lot of you missunderstand something...
You cant get a Zanpakutou!
The Zanpakutou is just a thing, a part of the users soul, that manifested with the intention to kill.
You cant get a Zanpakutou, you cant loose it, you cant change it, its a part of you, or better said it is your own soul.
Thats why Chad is atm trying to archive bankai. Because the power of Bankai is not limitated to Shinigami.
Besides, everyone is able to become a Shinigami, have a Shikai and Bankai....
A Zanpakuto ispart of one's soul?? COOL!!!!
No wonder Zangetsu is a badass just like Ichigo.He he he . . .
But bout Zaraki's Zanpakuto? If his killing instinct is already high, then what bout his Zanpakuto? And what it's name would be, guys?
Granted. I can see you're also done with this conversation.
