Well, one thing i don't understand is what yama-ji's vc is implying... is it a mistranslation(mangastream plss come back)... "they can bankai" or "They Can Seal bankai"? ( http://www.mangareader.net/bleach/484/7 ) .... if its the first... them having bankai would entirely be unimaginable since they are presumed to be quincies unless some of them are once part of the royal guard or zero squad or gotei13 that rebeled and not all are quincies like ivan
I like how they vanished into the shadows...it reminds me of kyoraku's technique.... and ivan is toast as expected... ichigo could have killed him if he wanted too... instead he wanted to get information from him(nice thinking) but ivan disappeared from the shadows( "the shadows only hide the chosen one huh")...
This guy really reminds me of kokuto(from bleach movie 4) - http://www.mangareader.net/bleach/484/15
There leader is a combination of zangetsu and kenpachi which would be much more ragged and meaner looking... he also looks like a pirate and aragorn from lord of the rings lol... first time an enemy is not a bishounen hehe - http://www.mangareader.net/bleach/484/16
