Every time I see Shinigami magic it just gets more and more extravagant every time..... and its usually futile every time -_-. I realize Kube had all the beastly old guys show their magic skills. Nice touch, but just fluff at the end of the day.
And did Urahara hint to knowing more about the Hyok?? Suddenly my "Urahara having a fail safe kill switch" idea doesn't sound too bad. However whatever he has planned Aizen would trump him and it would be ALLL up to Ichigo in the end.
"He is now declaring his words to the WORLD!"
Well He did make it so he should know more about it. He didn't even seem shocked at what was happening to Aizen and the fact that he hinted fusion over everything else, even Aizen said that it will only give him a powerup for a certain amount of time.
Why does everyone - after the captains were (gravely) wounded - fight Aizen one-on-one? Where's the ex kidou master, tomcat-woman?
Urahara's remarks "I did not master it ... in the past" could refer to:
-The thing cannot be mastered and it now seeks to subdue Aizen to its will
-Urahara has something similar in reserve (he used Ichigo's friends to obtain it - BWAHAHA. You want to help though you are weak? Come on, get into the magic pot.)
The Captains took Aizen on together and all fell, Isshin by himself push Aizen to his shinigami limit and Ichigo was fighting Gin, so he had to fight Aizen 1 on 1, Urahara just shot out Kidou after Kidou they would have only gotten in the way if they tried to help.
Urahara made the hougyoku to strengthen souls never to give someone hollow powers, but he failed when he found out what it done he sealed it. Now Aizen is using it in the way Urahara wanted to and thats strengthen his own power without getting hollowfied the problem with that is that's not how it's ment to be used now. The Hougyoku is a living thing it wouldn't suprise me if it took control of Aizen.
Shame Aizen will be weakened at best by this blast, but Urahara is totally my fave character in Bleach so I enjoyed the chapter.
Good chapter if only for finally seeing Urahara really fight and not just the sad excuses for fights we've seen in the past. Still I see him just weakening Aizen, maybe even going bankai to do so, before Ichigo takes over to fight out the last part, no doubt with some new power upgrade again.
Actually, it wouldn't be surprising if it turns out the final villain is the Hougyoku itself...
All this does beg the questions>, how in the heck did Urahara make the damn Hougyoku in the first place? Couden't he make another? And if this thing is "alive" and has a will what exacly is this thing then?

That is some scary sht there man. This reeks of philosopher's stone. But this is clearly not going to end here. I think we are in fact going to get some insight on how it was made or what the heck it is.
