As I was reading the issue where Shinji released his sword and fought Aizen, I started to think about something. Shinji explained what his weapon does to Aizen, even though it was a fight to the death. He managed to cut Aizen and then further explained the ability and what happened next? Shinji was powned.That part got me thinking. Why the hell would you explain your weapon's powers to your enemy? Why provide the slightest advantage or opportunity to an opponent that plans on killing you? I have no doubt that Shinji could've landed a few more hits if he just kept quiet and attacked. He might not have beaten him, but at the very least, been in better shape.
I know Kubo needed to explain the abilities, but honestly, this is a fight to the death in most situations. Have someone explain the weapon's ability in a flashback or off to the side. I just feel like telling your enemy exactly what your weapon can do is dumb. Especially if there are only 2 possible outcomes: live or die. Northstar1012 23:57, March 29, 2010 (UTC)
