I wouldnt say that this ability is a dubble edge sword he doesn't choose the game, if it is taller-monster he would lose to anyone taller then him, if it's shadow-monster then if he touches his shadow he gets hurt. This is the closes ability to a hax ability without being one I wouldn't expect anything less from a senior captain, especially someone who has been given such praise.
In “Kagefumi Oni” if you get your shadow stepped on you lose, in “Taka Oni” if you’re up higher than (the Oni) you win if you lose you die and if you win you live
These are based on childhood games called “Kagefumi Oni “ and “Taka Oni” which are variations on the standard “Oni Gokko” (Oni Gokko being similar to Tag):
Kagefumi Oni, one person is the Oni and chases around others trying to step on their shadows. If you get your shadow stepped on then you’re “it” (the Oni).
Taka Oni, is like normal Oni Gokko except that the way to avoid being tagged by the Oni is to be in a higher position than the Oni (like on the jungle gym, standing on a rock, etc.). You can only stay in one high up place for a certain amount of time before finding a new one. If you get tagged by the Oni then you’re “it” (the Oni).
Iro Oni is usually played by having the Oni picking a color and the other players trying to figure out that color and touch something of that color. Those who haven’t found and touched that color are chased by the Oni (and whoever gets tagged becomes the new Oni and has to choose a new color). If the Oni can’t tag anyone then they have to choose a new color.
If you remember Taka Oni was the attack Shunsui didn't get to pull off on Starrk, and when he tried to do it he already had the higher position meaning he would have won that game.
This leads me to believe that this ability that he is using is one of his Shikai. Bushō Koma is his distraction ability to help him pull off the rest, Kagefumi Oni and Iro Oni must be the other names of his abilities.
Yeah i think its his shikai. you can't have a bankai without saying bankai lol......well as far as we know. i wonder what would happen if they said bankai but hadn't achieved it yet....would they explode leaving behind only traces of candy?
^ It could be that Kubo is holding back the release command for whatever reason. Though it'd be the only case so far when he has.
I dunno, I guess i'm just hoping that there's not gonna be like all soul reapers < the few with hax zanpakuto
ichigo doesnt say bankai anymore......and if aizen can have a shikai like that...shunsui dsereves one too
If he didn't show Shunsui go Bankai I would be pissed, if he backed it up with a flashback of him going Bankai then tell us the reason we didn't see it, then I might not be so mad.
I really wouldn't mind either way if they didn't show it. It's not like there are release commands for Bankai. I'm also glad Kubo is moving this along. See THIS is a good chapter. Cause we see something that's unexpected.
Also excited to see Staark's flashback. Only good part in the last 10 chapters.
Yea what yall said made sense.... kube wouldn't rob us of our "BAN-KAI!!!" -_-
I am SO CONFUSED with this chapter, but I kind of get where Stark is coming from and why he would be labled loneliness. In fact he should be the opposite of lonely since he divided himself in half to make himself basically have someone to be around him. I have no idea about the move that is done in this chapter, I think I need to read it like 5 times and even then perhaps watch the episode like 3 times to get it.
They're still the same person. Just different parts. He is lonely. He knows how strong much stronger he is than everyone. Personally I would be very disappointed if he died, which I don't think he will. I think either Hallibel will come in for her Sacrifice theme. OR he just isn't done yet. He's the Primera.
I dont think he'll be dead soon.... but he def. would be dead in the not to distant future. His gloomy disposition is what makes me think so. Hes just needs a nice long "rest"
