    I'm not sure whether it is implying that the other half of his zan is nanao's or that she holds the other true half of his zan. I honestly got confused....

    It said it's the secret of his two-sword style, so I'm guessing he originally wasn't supposed to use a two-sword style at all. Which means that his Zanpakutou is only Katen. Kyoukotsu is Nanao's, and apparently, Shunsui made some sort of promise with Nanao's mother to never give it to her. But I agree with Koshka - seriously, wtf?!

    But really, I guess this explains why only the older woman Spirit appeared when he used Bankai.

    This makes no sense. Shunsui had those swords before Nanoa existed. Troll. Troll. Troll. Troll.

    This.

    Retcons in action, per usual.

    He's the oldest of the captains after yama, and he had a different VC as recent as 100 years ago when he lost Lisa (I think Lisa?)

    Lazy writing with an attempt at "woah!" factor that falls flat if you think back more than an arc.

    Actually, He was one of the first students at the academy.
    I think the flashback to Unohana Kenpachi vs Zaraki chibi was set prior to the academy.

    So Unohana seems to be the oldest

    Your point stands though

    Kenpachi is not that old. If I recall he was not the 11th division captain 100 some years ago?

    Next time on Bleach. Nanao's mother is Ran Tao from the Bounto arc. And Lille is going to fight the chicken doll mod soul.




    Bankai-Ichigo: It's not two different Zanakutou, it's one with two Spirits. Like Zangetsu, except that Zangetsu is also part Quincy and part Hollow.
    Kubo Tite: You know nothing of my work.

    Hey, like I said, it's a retcon. Up until now, there'd been nothing even hinting at this. Besides, my point was about two different Zanpakutou owned by Shunsui himself. Here, it's a Zanpakutou Shunsui was holding on to and shouldn't have been able to use as his own, but was somehow able to.

    Now that I think of it, it must be something similar to how Tousen put a piece of his soul into his friend's Zanpakutou and made it his own. Once Nanao takes that Zanpakutou back and puts her own reiatsu into it, it'll become hers again. Something like that.

    Now there are two people who left who are going to be using a two-sword style. I wonder if Ukitake knew about this, though?

    This just isn't cool. It's arguably the worst thing you can do in a manga - make something less cool. Even more so when it's a retcon as Shunsui was using two swords in flashbacks to him being a younger man.

    he's been using 2 swords for at least 2000 years and to imply nanao is that old would be laughable.

    Wow...I am officially impressed.

    NOT in a good way.

    In an arc that has been nothing but an increasingly stupid series of ass-pulls each more unbelievable than the next, this has to be by far the stupidest, not to mention the laziest.
    Well, no. This one has to be a tie for stupidest of all in the entire history of Bleach with the retconning of Zangetsu - I'd forgotten about that one.
    But it is definitely the LAZIEST, CRAPPIEST FUCKING ASSPULL IN THE ENTIRE FUCKING HISTORY OF BLEACH.
    It's like the Kubotroll wanted to have Nanao take over, but was too goddamn lazy to come up with an original zanpakuto, so he decided "Hey, let's shit on Kyoraku by retconning his zanpakuto by...oops!...he was actually using two separate ones the whole fucking time!
    Disgusting. Even Naruto at its worst never got this bad.

    It's a damn shame "1" is the lowest option on the poll, because this deserves a big, fat ZERO.

    I know that this, coming from a well-known Ichigo fan, might not have much impact, but still: At least Zangetsu's retcon was still good and made a bit of sense. All Kubo did was use Spirits that already existed inside Ichigo, making one the Quincy power manifestation and the other the combination of Shinigami/Hollow power manifestation. This one with Shunsui and Nanao's Zanpakutous is worse.

    It is a terrible story. But it isn't "retcon" as so many are insisting. Her zanpakuto has always remained a mystery and now that irritating unknown has been filled, albeit in an unsatisfying and needlessly convoluted way.

    Heh, I was right in a way. The way that big woman talked to him.

    Also is that weird enemy the Jabberwocky? Does it need the Vorpal Blade to be defeated? Alice in Shunsuiland?
