I was reading articles on bleach.wikia.com and it said that Kenpachi's zanpakuto is in a constant shikai state like Ichigo's. Is that true? I thought Kenpachi was just immensely powerful and did even have shikai yet. It also said that shikai must be achieved by learning your zanpakuto's name, which I know, it said that he was a special case even though his zanpakuto wont even communicate with him.

I thought it was implied that his zanpakuto is released in its shikai due to the amount of reiatsu it gets bathed in, and if you read down a little it said its implied taht he may have learned its name in the manga.

Well I never read up on the manga unfortanely. I just rewatched the fight between Ichigo and Kenpachi and I'm still confused. Kenpachi says that his sword is always in a released state and that he can't seal it because he reiatsu is too f'n huge. He also said doesn't have a name, but this might be because he treats his zanpakuto as a mere tool and it thats why it never told him its name. Zangetsu said Kenpachi and his zanpakuto don't fight as one and thats why he has a lack of understanding of it. I think Kenpachi just fights with a sealed zanpakuto and a huge reiatsu.

ah, but I beleive that his zanpakuto is in its shikai, it looks all beat up and stuff, but it is still able to pierce zangetsu and cut buildings in half, if it was just his katana it'd be pretty easy just to break it, thus why i think it is released but maybe not a full release.

I'v only read to manga number 16...So I really do not know, but I remember a couple mangas ago, after he hearly died fighting Ichigo, he tried to learn his Zanpakuto's name, but it was too late. >_> Idk, just what I have read, He is so strong without his zan. name that I cant imagine what'd he be like WITH it =D.

Thats true after the fight he did try to communicate with his zanpakuto. Perhaps after being beaten by Ichigo and seeing the bond he had with Zangetsu. I think Kenpachi thinks his sword was in shikai but being beaten by Ichigo made him think differently. I think Kenpachi learning bankai would be the scariest thing ever :eek:
