    I'm just gonna take a shot at this one, seeing how this seems to be the theme of the arc;

    The Spirit King is Aizen, and the Aizen we knew was simply an over-the-top gigai he developed to test the strength and resilience of Soul Society.

    Seriously, I don't get why Kubo gets such a thrill out of developing so many questions per chapter while answering so few. Nevertheless, another interesting chapter. The chapter after next week's will probably be the last until the new year, seeing Christmas is pretty much 3 weeks away.

    Now, it creates a night with a full moon.

    That is where the quality took a steep, and permanent decline.

    Kubo lacks originality, HM arc was save Rukia 2.0 but with Orihime taking Rukia's place as the damsel in distress.

    No, the fandom wasn't trolled.

    Ever since that little nice talk between Urahara and Aizen, we were warned that there was something really off about the King.
    They even spoke about him like he was a "thing".

    If you decided to ignore this, well...

    After the revelations about the Key and the Royal Guards, could it be that the Soul King's "body" - what we saw this chapter - is in fact just a vessel? I mean, like, what if he is himself a "super" Key of some kind?

    I've seen people theorizing that the King is some kind of Master Hogyoku, and Aizen and Urahara tried to recreate him.

    In this scenario, Aizen would have literally tried to become a new "King" by trying to completely fuse himself with the Hogyoku he (and then Urahara) created.

    That would fit with the new definition of the King's Key; if it's an ability that can only be bestowed by the King, then Aizen would be able to create it if he became a "King" himself.

    This makes perfect sense. I agree with you entirely.

    I'm waiting for Urahara to be confirmed as the final villain. But I do like this theory since it explains the similarities that I noticed between the King and Aizen's Hogyoku form.

    ...I hadn't noticed the similarity with the weird eyes until you said that.

    Also, is it just me or does the casing the Soul King is seen within look like some kind of gem or crystal? That might be another hint.

    It looks somewhat like a cocoon to me, what also reminds me of Aizen's butterfly form.

    Shunsui is Captain Commander.. and Unohana is the first Kenpachi what a shocker.

    So Shunsui is now the Captain Commander; can't say I'm surprised. He certainly knows how to rally the other Captains, so he was the best candidate for the job. And Unohana being revealed to be the first Kenpachi was a surprise; I guess all that stuff Kubo said about her being tough was true.

    To be expected. I like him, so this is a nice development.

    What what what what WHAT.

    Okay there is no way that Kubo can break his promise to show her fighting now.

    Unohana just went all kinds of badass. Glad to see Shunsui take charge.

    I concur. Ver-mont, you've done it again.

    At this point though, while I'm excited by the prospect of actually seeing Unohana fight, I'm mostly just curious as to why her name is "Yachiru." But I guess that'll be revealed soon enough.


    Also yaaaay Captain-Commander Shunsui

    She was the first Kenpachi and her real name is Yachiru, not Retsu.

    Kenpachi Zaraki named his sidekick Yachiru after the person he respected the most.

    Therefore...

    I don't blame you, I had forgotten it too until I saw someone else bring it up.

    On another note, I just randomly got the idea in my head that Ichigo will end up being made into a Royal Guard by the Soul King at some point. I mean, he has or had a little bit of everything in him at once point or another.

    And here I thought Ukitake was going to be the new Captain-Commander. Well now they need a new eighth division captain. Will Renji finally be getting that promotion?!
