But hey we still have Shunsui who's could end up being a wind type do to his release command which is "Flowers Fall In The Wind, The God Of Flower Weeps The Winds Of Heaven Are Falling Buddah's Laughing", and Jyuushirou who could be water and Lightning "Every Wave Become My Shield, Every Lightning Become My Sword".
    While not strictly canon, and so technically irrelevant, both DS games and the Wii game portray them that way too, so i'm at least assuming that's partly due to kubo's design, and not just randomly pulled from the release commands.

    Though given the source I could quite easily be wrong >_>

    It wouldnīt be the first time a Shikai would be shown in a game before the actual manga.

    Shiba Kaienīs shikai was shown long before the Rukia x Arroinero fight.

    Kubo is still thinking what Bankais to give the captains, thats why he is dragging the battles. He dosent want to blow it big time by giving us more lame, one dimensional bankais. I think Soi Fon's bankai is really last resort. Maybe she gets an armor that gives her protection and invisibility, as well as projectiles of her shikai.

    I reckon more types of soul slayers need to be introduced. We still got no info on shinji & co. Ichigo's dad, youichi, sandal hat, and Tensei.
    I reckon Barrier guy with pink hair has LOADS of potential with a multi dimensional bankai. The potential to create worlds and phase shifting...
    We have seen only 1 animal based bankai (soi fon- hornet), maybe a spider type one that focuses on binding would be cool. Or a nature type (tree) that binds or protects.
    Hopefully Shunsui's bankai is epic, with a name like heaven's cloud or something with an invisible shape shifting weapon.
    Have we seen any kidou type bankais yet? NO! WHY?!! We know Aizen's is obviously kidou based thought... looking forward to that.

    ps. I reckon a time manupliator type sword would beat Aizen. No one messes with time.

    I highly doubt that Kubo is dragging it out because he's think of Bankai's, and I don't know what you're looking at or reading but the only one dimensional bankai we've seen is Ichigo's all the rest are fine.

    It seems that all you wanna see are Bankai's.

    We have know info on any of the Vizard Zanpaktou's except Kensai's, (learn the name's) we have more info on Kisuke zanpaktou then we have on any of the Vizards or Isshin and we don't even know if Yoruichi, Tessia or Hachi even have Zanpaktou's. Tessia was Captain of the Kido Corps and Hachi was his Vice, the Kido Corps was not apart of the Gotei 13 and they may not have had to have a Zanpaktou, the same goes for Yoruichi she was the Commander of the Onmitsukido, and Corps Commander of the Corrections Corps she was not apart of the Gotei 13 until she became Captain and we don't know if she became one because she had achieved Bankai or because she specialized in executions and assassinations.

    That was my main reason for being skeptical about Soi Fong havin a Bankai in the first place. If your the leader of the Onmitsukido then you automatically earn the 2nd seat Captain position, so the typical Bankai requirement isn't nes. The only thing that gives me lil faith that she has one is the fact that she has a shikai so only time will tell which route kube takes, who knows.

    You donīt automatically become a Captain if youīre the Special Forces Commander, it was when Yoruichi applied, and became a Captain, that the Organizations became intertwined but it never stated that it ignores the Captain requirements.

    Plus it was stated very clearly that Kenpachi is the only Captain in Soul society history to not possess a bankai so it donīt know why youīre still so keen on that possibility Kraz.

    Also the Kidou Corps are not part of the 13 Squads and we didnīt saw either Tessai and Hacchi with a sword in Turn back the Pendulum, although we did Hachhi with one when he was Vizard. But for all we know, both of them donīt even have Bankai.

    ^yes, that's right.

    My hope is that the bankais don't turn out to be the unbelievably convenient counter to the enemy's ability. I mean, how often have we seen a good guy losing only to pull a trump card out of nowhere that JUST SO HAPPENS to perfectly nullify or overcome the opponent's ability, rendering it useless? I mean, it has to give them a bit more edge, I agree, but it shouldn't have the character proclaiming that the enemy's ability is now utterly useless and helpless because he just had the right counter by coincidence.

    I can't really speculate what Soi Fon's bankai is...I guess it's good that it doesn't seem predictable, to me. Though if it's anything related to stealth or speed or assassination...that would be a little predictable, though understandable. Wonder what Omaeda's bankai would be, if he ever got one.

    A much, much larger spiked-ball for his chain.
