Sosuke Aizen has been my favorite bleach character for a good while now; and there is good reason to like him as a character. People claim that he is overpowered but that isn't completely true.. as evidenced by the wound received from Ichigo. Sure he barely got burnt by Genryusai but the fact still remains that he got injured; he also got wounded by Shinji. This alone proves that he is not overpowered (synonymous in most people's mind to immortal/unscathable). He shows little emotion, has the typical villain air around him, is cocky as most villains should be, and is really powerful. His shikai is uber powerful and only Kubo knows how strong his bankai is. He deserves to be the ultimate (last) villain in bleach.. and it seems like that is what will happen in this series.
I have to admit that Aizen sama dealing with the vizards was a dissapointment considering that they had 100 years to train (excluding Ichigo) for both their hollow mask, and to possibly achieve Bankai. Then again when you think about it.. Kubo had to take out everyone.. there simply was to many good guys vs too little bad guys. Not everyone could survive the battle (in terms of 'screen' time). Aizen sama's reaction to Kaname's death also dissapointed me (he ranks 12th in my list after Sosuke, Byakuya, and The Vizards). While it was not a surprise for him not to react to Kaname's death; it was still a bit of a disappointing.
Oh well; everything can't go my way but still.. I am fairly pleased with the way this story is turning out and I doubt Kubo will disappoint no matter which way he decides to turn this manga.
So Aizen is still able to stop Ichigo's attack; albeit with one hand this time.. still impressive if you ask me. Also; he claims to know Ichigo since he was born.. this reminds me of something someone said along these same lines.. haha that's twice people have been able to guess something major that occured (the other instance being someone guessing Kaname would pull out a resurreccion). Now Isshin shows up (looking like he's 100%) and he seems a bit familiar with Aizen.. which raises alot of questions and at the same time caused alot of crack theories to show up around this wiki.
Looking at Sosuke's new transformation; I can honestly say I like his older self (he would have been really cool with his shinigami captain clothes and his new hairstyle as seen for a few seconds when he was ascending to Hueco Mundo.) I'm predicting that the Hogyoku will be a major part in Sosuke's downfall if he does go down (hope he doesn't but it's up to Kubo.)
