I wonder if his stealing of a asauchi will play a part in this at all? It sounded like they were given to each shinigami individually and for a purpose, but then we learn later on that you have to put your soul into it because they are all blank and then it becomes yours or whatever, but didn't Kenpachi take his from a shinigami he killed or something?
