Urahara Kisuke - Mr Resourceful
At first i wasn't a massive fan of Kisuke as a character, probably because I got all stupid and elitist and tried to find a character that had less popularity. But having gone over the manga and anime a couple of times I had a change of mind.
It's a theme in SS that each captain has a specialist attribute which you can consider their strength, with a few being all rounders. With the exception of the top tier captains, some of the other all rounders are fairly competent with their skill set, but not amazing at everything. Kisuke doesn't have everything, but he comes pretty close. The guy has so much at his disposal in terms of resources, it's actually not fair.
Tessai - former head of kidou corps
Former President of TRB
Best friends with one of the fastest, if not the fastest shinigami
Links with stealth division for assasination and combat skills
His raw talent and spiritual pressure
He's not the strongest shinigami out there, but he's definitely one of the top shinigami who's bankai i'm looking forward to seeing. Kubo better not disappoint. Also would love to see a Mayuri/Kisuke team up against the Quincy, just for awesomeness.
So yeah, any shikai/bankai/team ups that you want to see in the future? And does Kisuke make his way into your favorite character list?. For me, he's not at the top yet, but he's made a few moves up...
