Yeah the not with this many people around from Ukitake (who reminds me of Doc Holliday lol, i'm sick! i'm good to fight! i'm sick!) Got me thinking that his Bankai is going to be something pretty crazy and probably an ace in the hole in the war to come. As to what it will be though, that's up in the air and hard to call just like Urahara. At first I was thinking maybe something like a giant shogi (sorry if spelling is wrong) board. Yama-jii did say that he saw through things easily and shogi is a very complicated game.
I see. Basically a power that forces Shunsuis opponent into having to face him in something that Shunsui is best at right? That would trully be a frightening power and also interesting and risky for its user to, something that matches Shunsuis current theme.
Lol don't let my name fool you, Shunsui is by far my favorite character. I've put tons of research into his character and that is definitely something that suits him. His lazy and fun loving demeanor is hiding a lot about him. He's a veteran and understands battle more than anyone there right now, seeing as how Yachiru Unohana is gone. His speech to Love and Rose really tells a lot about who he is. That is one of the few times I feel he was being himself and honest. Him telling Sado that one of his punches would kill him was a complete bluff and I think he only said it to up his confidence and keep him throwing energy out so he would tire out and make it easier for him to take him out without killing him.
I'm just like you. I've literally spent hours researching about Shunsui and he's my fav. character. i hope he doesn't die
I like to think he's pretty safe. The promotion almost makes me positive that'll he'll make it to the end to lead the Gotei 13 into the next era. I'm really excited for whatever developments we get on him in the future. Kubo said at one time that we'll see his bankai and learn the story behind his flower kimono. Plus I can't wait to see him lay a beat down on Colonel Sanders.
I think the Kimono belonged to his wife.
Is it confirmed he had a wife? I was going to suggest that theory also but I don't ever remember any confirmation that he had a wife.
None of his family life is ever mentioned. He's from some minor noble family, if I recall correctly.
