Heya folks. I'm not the first one to notice this but I wanted to bring it out into the open for anyone that didn't catch this interesting tidbit. During Hinamori's fight with the arrancar, Hinamori was able to unsheath Tobiume straight into Shikai. According to www.bleach.wikia.com
, Shinigami are only capable of releasing the Shikai state of Zanpakuto without reciting the release command after
they have obtained Bankai abilities.
I see three possibilities here:
1) Hinamori has obtained Bankai, and Kubo is trying to hint us to future use
2) Kubo fluffed up?
3) The Bankai-Release Zanpakuto without command is a rule that Kubo just doesn't care about anymore.
What do you guys think? Do you think Hinamori is really capable of releasing Bankai? Do you think she's smart or strong or capable enough??
What is her bankai!?
