Because before he fought her he was one person,and after it he was a completely different person.
Zaraki was the same person before and after their first battle. He liked to fighting strong opponents then, he still does now. There was no difference.
So, what youre saying is: He remembered the fight, (1)he remembered he lost the fight, he remembered her name, but not her face? You dont realize how dumb this sounds? (2)Especially considering Zaraki modled himself after her?
1. Unohana flat-out said Zaraki won the match, and that was after he started subconsciously holding back on her.
2. No he did not, because he realized he and Unohana were nothing alike.
Sakura modelled herself after Ryu, by emulating his fighting style. Zaraki modelled himself after someone who didn't exist. That's why he was surprised to find out she used hidden weapons, which he considered a cheap tactic.
You see the disconnect there?
In Love Hina, the guy just doesnt remeber someone that he last saw in his childhood, and has since grown up and thus changed how she looked, while Unohana hasnt aged a day?
It wasn't the fact that her look had changed, Keitaro couldn't remember who the girl was period. All he remembered was the promise he made to them.
If Zaraki ever forgot about her, he should have remembered the moment he saw her again.
Not necessarily, especially if there was anything clouding his memory of her. It took their rematch to jog his memory.
He joined the gotei to become like her, not beat her. He saw that she wasnt interested in fighting anymore, anyway, which is why she went to the 4th division.
When did he say that?
It was never said why she joined the 4th division, or how she went from murderous rampages to being 'Dr. Quinn'.
But this is word by word explained by Unohana herself, remember? Its because he never gave her an opening before that he got those impressions of her.
Which would mean he never really knew her, so he couldn't model himself after her.
Why exactly even gave you the impression he forgot about her face when he clarly recognizes her in Muken? Why didnt he react at the fact that Unohana was Yachiru then?
I could've sworn he did. iirc, he didn't realize it was her, until she showed him the scar he'd given her in their first match.
Why doesnt he question why they are even fighting?
Since when does Zaraki turn down a chance to fight a strong opponent? It's what he lives for. So why would he question it now?
Besides, they were ordered to by the newly appointed CC. That was all the justification either of them needed.
Why did he leave his eyepatch at his divisions quarters before going to the actual fight? Why did he never ask anyone who Yachiru was if he was looking for her?
The fight was supposed to be to death. He'd have to be pretty foolish to leave his patch on for a fight like that, 'cuz the last time he made that mistake (vs. Nnoitra), it nearly got him killed.
Kenpachi not remembering about Unohana makes zero sense whatsoever. She's literally one of the most important people in his life, yet he just forgot about her? Why would he even forget about her?
Just because she was important to him, doesn't mean he'd remember who she was.
Case in point: Sokka's mother was important to him to. Yet, he admitted to Toph that he couldn't remember her face anymore. He said every time he tried to, the only face he saw was Katara's. Just sayin'.
