Exactly, it's time for a new level of badassery from Kenpachi
Was Kenpachi even fighting with his full power when he was taken out? We never saw him remove his eye patch, and every frame we see him until one of the last frames where he is defeated he clearly has his eye patch on......so did he never lose it (and the last frame, where it appears gone is due just to the angle or forgotten about?) or did he never remove it? Also, it doesn't seem like he ever wielded his sword with two hands in his fight, but we never saw a majority of the fight.
It's impossible to tell, but I doubt kenpachi was fighting at full power, though it might not have made much of a difference.....if he was defeated that quickly with his eye patch and wielding his sword in one hand, then I doubt he would have stood much of a chance if he lost his patch and used both hands. Though it's possible he just didn't have time to remove his eye patch before he was defeated. I wish we got to see more of that fight to really see what happened.
Though I would love to see Kenpachi's bankai, it wouldn't do much good considering bankai is basically useless against the enemy (though, like the captain-commander, kenpachi's might be too powerful).
I'm still interested in seeing Urahara's bankai....I mean nearly every character who has their zanpakuto and has achieved bankai has shown their bankai (except Aizen, who no longer has his, two of the Visoreds who were captains, and of course Urahara). We have seen how destructive his Shikai can be, and when asked about his bankai for training purposes he responded that it would be "no good". I'm guessing his bankai has so much destructive power that he is afraid to use it anywhere that risks the lives of his friends.
So many things that Bleach needs to answer, it's probably going to take forever to do so though.....I have a feeling Kenpachi won't learn his Bankai, or at least not any time soon. The standard Bankai takes 10 years of training just to properly summon it in combat, then hundreds of years after to master it, and Kenpachi doesn't even know his zanpakuto's name yet (which is why it won't heal the chips in the blade like every other zanpakuto would). Look at Hisuguya, he has had bankai since the beginning of the series and while he has improved the duration he can use it and the power it has, he still hasn't mastered it yet. I doubt Kenpachi is just going to go through some training and pop back into the scene with an overpowered Bankai. Plus, it's said bankai generally increases ones power by 5-10 times, giving that to Kenpachi would make him stronger than anyone else without a doubt.
