Looks like Yama survived. He will probably leave him alive, to witness the fall of SS and when that happens, THEN, he will summon the dead against Yama for the final fight.
I was hoping that Quincy would at least need to use wires to create bows in mid-air, but oh well, at least he uses an "Arrow" now .
So now that As is dead, does it mean that Byakuya regained his bankai ? Well, if he is dead then it doesn't really matter, but still...
Hmmmm, if Ginjou were alive and if he could share some of Ichigo's power to every other Shinigami, does it mean that their bankais would become impossible to steal as well ?
Looks like Aizen is waiting for someone, the question is who ?
