Quote from Kaitentsuki
....god Kubo this is why u should never try something like making a plain guy shine...i mean he appeared like 5-10 chapters ago and died, revealing he had a bankai in the process, despite being a weak ass guy that got 1 hit ko'd by Ichigo and were supposed to believe he could damage Yamamoto? Plus ...
Well, it's not like Kubo has ever managed to keep the power levels of his characters in anything even remotely resembling consistency aside from the true monsters like Yamamoto and Kenpachi. In this case, the barehanded OHKO is the bullshit thing, even if it did happen way before we were told the dude should have been legit. Considering what we've seen from the other vice-captains, it never made sense that Yamamotos second would have been weaker than Renji, for example.
I don't generally mind this particular development. Considering the number of characters in Bleach, some were bound to be left to the sidelines. Even posthumous info helps a little in fleshing out a character. And as for the bullshit.. we'll, this is Bleach after all. Nothing suprising there at this point of the story.
Makoz's identity mistake is dead funny though. How can you miss the point of a chapter what well?
