No it isn't about power, shikai or bankai but rather much more important:
Who do you think will get Orihime's first kiss?
Ichigo - he has style and the love/main character factor
Aizen - he is much better, more glaumorous and more powerful
Chizuru - she has madness on her side...plus she already saw Inoue change clothes
Eiwwww, Aizen is so old and gross >:p and Im not a big fan of lezbo's so its gotta be Ichigo unfortunately, but it would be hella tight if Chad just came in a scooped her before Ichigo does right in front of him! I wanna watch his heart break right in front of me!!!
A pie in the sky?
If you look past the absolute pure evil and intimidation factors Aizen possesses, he seems like quite the charming guy. I vote Aizen, mostly cuz Ichigo is so damn oblivious to everything...he doesn't deserve Orihime if you ask me.
That whole scene with Aizen and Orihime had no "romantic" implications. It was simply Aizen playing with her head again. He got close, tried to sooth her, but not really then pretty said "Smile, I'll be right back once I'm done destroying everyone and everything you hold dear" I doubt she even absorbed the situation, she was in shock the entire time.
Wont lie, when I first saw the scene i thought he was going to lay one on her too.
I'm with you there Faizaud
I'm not saying anything about romance....at least not to Aizen. But he can make Orihime fall for him (and for his zanpaktou it can't be so hard as to just snap your fingers)
