- I really like Gin's bankai, seem pretty damn cool.
- Liking how good Ichigo is reading Gin's movement with his zanpaktou.
- Aizen's beginning to understand the will of the hogyoku he's says. I have a feeling what ever changes he expects hyogoku probably will be good in the beginning but I really think it will become its own entity and turn on him.

cool chapter.. seems like aizen is having a hard time fighting with ichigo's dad
gins ban kai is awesome.i want to see how ichigo is going to deal with it.
I hope all this Hyougoku talk doesn't mean Kubo is taking the lame way out on this manga and doing the "inanimate evil object took control over me because it wants a body and to destroy the world and im a good guy being manipulated but I will hold it back for a few seconds so you can kill me" scenario....
I have a feeling Aizen is being manipulated by the Hyougoku...

When Ichigo is going through his thought process of figuring when he missed Gin contracting the length of his sword, it reminded me of something.
I recall seeing some sword stances specifically being used to conceal the length of the blade. Gin has likely mastered this type of technique. So, when he is fighting someone face to face, he can keep his blade angled just right in perspective to his opponent making it appear normal length until it is too late for them to react.
Using that kind of technique and considering the speed of extending the blade, I can see why he is rather surprised by Ichigos ability to react to the movements. It seems Ichigos thought process is correct, it will be all over if he doesn't perceive the tip of the blade, finding himself unable to dodge or deflect the trajectory.
I am not sure if Gin is bluffing about his blade being about to break when it impacts against Ichigos. It makes me wonder about Ichigos bankai, perhaps it is a super dense concentration of spiritual energy that can not be broken.
The scary thing about Gin's bankai is when you go to parry and you think his sword is of normal length, he could shorten it in an instant, you swing and miss and as his sword and your sword pass, he could just re-extend it the second you pass and shish-kabob you.
Must take a lot of practice and control to be able to use that sword to the best of its abilities.

Go back and read Icihgo's comments to Gin about his attempted deception of his Bankai's abilities.
Funny question but Gin said his Zanpaktou is not the longest but the fastest.... who has a longer Zanpaktou than his???
What chakra type are you?
