This turned out to be a relatively uneventful chapter save for the semi-confirmation that Ichigo is the chosen one against Aizen. The problem is that it’s hard for me to accept the fact that an Ichigo who’s never seen Aizen’s shikai release is a better match-up against Aizen than, say, Yamamoto with his years of experience and theoretically absurd power levels (and if shounen series have taught me anything, it’s that absurd power levels can overcome any obstacle). Against Ichigo, all Aizen needs is to just do his shikai release to void any advantage, and even if that didn’t work, Aizen still has his bankai to fall back on. This isn’t even considering the fact either that Ichigo’s own power is still unstable. So I don’t think he’ll win them the battle because of this, and there’s probably some plot twist waiting. Regardless, I suspect that it might still take a little while to get to that point and that there might be a few chapters of Aizen and company kicking ass first before Ichigo and Unohana finally arrive.
