...Let's try this again.
"He's never released his zanpakutou after equipping the mask."
There's always a chance if he went from Shi Kai to Ban Kai while in Masked-Form he might immediately turn on his enemy like they were a certain gloating Kuchiki surrounded my Black Getsugas.
Ichigo will loose this recent fight with the arrancar, his hollow form will come out. And ichigo will find a way to get rid of it by transforming himself.
"Ignorance is a disease, you are the cure."
My reasoning behind that is pretty simple: When he uses Getsuga Tenshou, his hollow-side starts creeping out. His eyes showed that much.
If he were to use his mask and then go into Ban Kai mode, chances are, he'd draw mostly from his hollow-side. Hence the mask.
Then again, it's just a thought.
When i look at the vizaards they just put on their mask. when Ichiogo was training he did it too. he did not release his bankai during training. yet when he fought Grimmjow he when straight to bankai.
I think this shows that we haven't even yet seen what the vizaards are capable of.
Considering Shinji's casual use of Cero, I'd imagine they're friggin stupid powerful when they actually have motivation to do anything.
And, yes, it sounds reasonable what if he gose bankai after putting mask on, he'd get a hollow-version of his bankai (ie White Tensa Zangetsu, due to hollowish sourse of power)
Ah, I'd love to see actual vizard fight all out. Hope, hope, pray what Shindji&Co will show up and beat some espada asses soon...
unlikely shinji n the vaizards would go to hueco mundo... it'll place them at a difficult position... they'll lose their neutral party status and aizen will start picking them out...
