...how did it go from "you've never seen the shikai so as long as you don't let him cast water reflecting moon pistol beam ( my own name ) you can at least hit the real thing and not an illusion" into "immune"
And it's kinda sad how Aizen and Dr. Evil are on the same level now.
fans: USE THE DAMN SHIKAI
aizen: No...I require....fairy wing tentacles with faces on them.....that shoot laserz
i think getting facepalmed has flustered aizen so much hes just mashing buttons now.
"i love you daddy" and all of a sudden it's the best day of my life
It's like he holds out his sword and starts to say "Shatter...!", and Ichigo looks away like "Hey, is that Hikaru Utada over there? Hmm...guess not. Oh, what were you doing?"
And Aizen's like "Damnit, look at my sword!"
"It's your parting gift. In that it will part you; part of you over here, part of you over there, part of you way over there, staining the wall!" Lord Shen
Or Aizen can use a binding kido. Or any number of kidos. Kubo can be creative with lots of kidos because we haven't seen many of them. We've seen only like...20 or so maybe?
That said, he did just walk up to Barragan and go: "Hey, look at my cool sword!" and that was enough. He doesn't seem to be able to do that to Ichigo or Isshin, though, so it does make more sense to say that it's not enough to look at it while he's activating the shikai.
"This doesn't look easy. But I bet it is!"
"Optimism through stalwart skepticism is a defect not everyone is lucky enough to be cursed with."
