Therein lies the problem with this manga, Renji's has developed supposedly, one would think Rukia, Kira (should've before he perished), Rangiku, and prolly Hisagi would have Bankai's and they couldn't be known. The whole set up of the stealing of the Bankai's comes off just wack, without specific rhyme or reason. Since the beginning of the manga, Ichigo is the only one that has 'achieved' Bankai from my knowledge. Ikkaku and his side homey has had theirs hidden since forever.

"Why, Mr. Kyf? Why do you do it? Why get up? Why keep fighting? Do you believe you're fighting FOR something? For more than your Characters survival? Can you tell me what IT is? Do you even know? Is IT freedom? Or truth? Perhaps peace? Yes? No? Could it be for love? Illusions, Mr. Kyf. Vagaries of perception. The temporary constructs of a feeble human intellect trying desperately to justify a shinobi that is without meaning or purpose. And all of them as artificial as the Matrix itself, although only a human mind could invent something as insipid as love. You must be able to see it, Mr. Kyf. You must know it by now. You can't win. It's pointless to keep fighting. Why, Mr. Kyf? Why? Why do you persist?"
