^ *Bump* for truth.
The fact that Kube blatantly tried to use his same formula from his first arc (a watered down version at that) kinda soured it for me... among other redundant aspects of his story telling -_-
I question Isshin's rational for not releasing his Zanpak against a formadable opponent?? Is his Zanpak's Shikai extremely big and bulky?? (Like he was alluding to Grandfisher?)
