Kenpachi proved how strong Tousen really is...

once he bankais, only a fool who's unafraid of "lets let him stab me and i'll hold the sword so i can reach him" (kenpachi...) would ever win against him. unless...
wait, so, his bankai wipes away all senses except touch right? what if you were some genius who could tell his movements through vibrations in the ground? like....a spider! in that case, you would have a chance!
but getting back on topic, yes yes yes he is a very strong fighter
His Bankai is hard to counter, but I don't really see himself as being strong. As in what happens if he was to fight Nnorita? His bankai would stop Nnoirta from attacking him, but he can't do much damage to him either because of the hierro. I reckon anyone with an AOE could beat him, like say Byakuya, where his bankai just attacks in all directions, or even Rukia if she had enough reiatsu to make her technique cover the same area as his bankai
Tosen strength has to be high. Him & Gin are above Espada, and we saw what the number 4 is capable of...
gd point i dont rmb anyone ever calling tousen weak..even though i can understand y ppl r inclined to liken him to a pussy with that warped thinking..but anyway yea if tousen was serious against zaraki zaraki shd have died in the 1st hit...like cutting his head off anyway. Honestly from what we have seen its possible that tousen is the only one who can actually fight aizen at this moment n win.
I reckon Ichigo could beat Tousen, I mean he did say that the best way to counter his bankai is to excape from his aoe. With Zangetsu's speed and his hollow power, Ichigo could easily run out before Tousen's bankai even completes.
the main reason tousen lost was because he was an idiot. he decided to lecture kenpachi when his bankai takes away all senses, including hearing.
the plot mandated that he forget how his bankai works, which is why he lost.
