    I was thinking about that a few days ago. I figured he must've been one of those 3 digit Arrancar and had the 6th rank before the new Espada were created. It also explains how Grimmjow 1 shot killed him when they should have been the same or near the same strength.

    Maybe The 10 firsts Arrancars are Espadas.

    And the next ones even if they are just as powerfull as espadas, get thrown in the reserve, when needed they just replace the number lost by one of similar power that was on reserve. Instead of making a weaker arrancar a higher rank..

    Because when Grimjow lost his rank if the 7th took the place of the 6th, would simply decrease the power of the espadas.. as the new 10th would be a weaker one then the last..

    The ranking in the Espada is pretty strange because it's due to the strength, but some of them are rankedin because of an ability they had. Like No. 9, who was a gillan status was in the Espada because of his absorbing abilities. So imagine that Luppi was ranked in as No. 6 because of his ability to take on many opponents at once.

    I still think wonderwyce is just a pure hollow-minded (no pun here either) type of Arrancar. He senses a strong opponent, who arguably would have made a great meal, and immediately charged him.
    I guess I had a bad choice of words but what you said could actually fit into my argument. Both Ichigo and Wonderwyce were running on hollow instincts during their respective...periods of time for lack of better words.

    But since we last saw Wonderwyce, some time has passed. He may have stabilized. However, we're all still speculating but nonetheless, it's an interesting point...

    ^ He wasn't exactly insane when his mask first broke, like I've noted before, he's capable of understanding speech (he told Aizen his name when asked).

    And I really don't see much of a change in his personality since then.

    Besides, menos (aside from gillian) are at least semi-intelligent, whatever they're capable of definitely includes speech and basic decision making skills.

    i totally agree with this comment. when i always thinkg about Nell i remember wonderweis. If wonderweis managed to utter his name to aizen, he at least has some semblance of intelligence and speech.

    It will be a shame if his character isnt developed further. i still wonder whether they will let him replace Arroniro- espada #9(forget the spelling)

    And also whether Luppi was ever resurrected by Inoue -- i need to see him keep his words to Hitsugaya taicho of payback for his ice imprisonment during their fight
