Thank you for another plot hole Kubo. Isshin really didn't fight Aizen seriously. Not just he didn't use bankai but also forgot to use "Final Getstuga Tensho".
S**K BIG TIME!
Considering possible civilian casualties it will be very difficult to use Final Getstuga Tensho in the town. So expect another Kubo-style plot twist soon. Or else it will be Ichigo and Isshin wiping out the population and helping Aizen forge the key.
^ Exactly. Unlike the previous tango with Aizen this battle is going to be in the real Kanka, town so they have to keep their *RAAWWWRR SLASHES* to an absolute minimum.
LOL@ Chuck: Kube really should take some drugs to be more unpredictable with his plot.
Why didn't Isshin used that FINAL Getsuga on Aizen is a bit off, it's like Kubo thinking
"Oh no Ichigo doesn't have any more ace in the sleeve against Aizen, guess I'll pull out another plot hole" thing
I always thought that when a shinigami dies so does there Zanpakuto spirit, so all you would have left is a sword, also a captain class shinigami can change the size/form of there zanpakuto as well. Tousen took the sword before he joined the Shinigami Academy so when he learned to control his shinigami powers he could have just put his on spirit within that sword.
It may be from the Diamond Dust Rebellion but I believe Kubo was the backing for that story because he wanted to tell Hitsugaya's background. That's why I feel that it canon materia,l just not canon timeline wise.
If it aint in the manga it aint canon if you think it is then you might aswel say everything in that movie was even the timeline, because it cant be canon but have a none canon timeline.
