    Default Cherry Blossoms VS Strong Reiatsu

    Personally, I think that a strong reiatsu is the Senbonzakura's greatest weakness.
    My theory has to do with the fact that Senbonzakura is all about numbers and overwhelming the opponent. Each petal is given only a small amount of power like a splash of water, but combined together they make a tidal wave that washes everything away.

    Also, notice how Ichigo was able to slice the blossoms away with his bankai speed? They were quick weak swings to knock the petals back.


    Now, let's talk about the reiatsu. A strong reiatsu will make weak attacks have little to no effect. Remember when Ichigo was unable to cut Kenpachi with his sword? His attack had little heart in it so it wasn't very powerful, but the reiatsu reduced to nothing. Kenpachi is the king of strong reiatsu, I mean he has to handicap it with an eye-patch.


    So this is my reasoning as to why a really really strong reiatsu could reduce the cherry blossoms to being ineffective. Because this is Byakuya's Shikai AND Bankai, it's significanly handicap him if he were to fight Kenpachi. He'd have to resort to that Angelic attack he had, but even then a fight of pure power like that would leaven Kenpachi advantaged.

    Thats why Byakuya has the "Senkei Senbonzakura Kageyoshi" to get rid of that weakness.
    The Senkei condenses the petals to blades and attacks the enemy with authority.

     
    If ya read the manga, Byakuya defeated Espada No. 7 using only his Bankai. And you know arrancars have that iron skin thing already.

    Truth is a thing which only appears to those who have observed, considered, and made a choice. At the end of the path you chose lies the truth...Believe in it and continue without faltering.

    But Ichigo was able to swat the kageyoshi away.

    ...and about the arrancar... it seems that they're really weaker than Soul Society predicted. It can't be true that 9 could take down soul society because the Captains are winning 1v1 fights vs the best arrancar ever.
    They don't make a good example for anything.

    Well, thats why Byakuya activated the "Senkei." If Byakuya used it on Zaraki, he will win the fight. Zaraki is quite slow while Byakuya is fast.

    Actually it takes a Captain or a high ranking officer (Ikkaku and the others) to take on an arrancar. El Dorado Leones and the others were all ordinary arrancars but Toushirou said that they are already strong. An ordinary shinigami won't be able to stand against an ordinary arrancar. Let's take Ulquiorra for example, he defeated Ichigo easily, he even took on a full blast of Getsuga Tenshou
    while Ichigo is in Vizard form. Arrancars are quite strong adversaries.

    Didn't Hitsugaya say 9 Vasto Lorde Arrancar could destroy all of Soul Society? I think from Nnoitra onwards they were all Adjuchas (except for #9 who was a Gillian). #1, #2, #3 and Ulquiorra could probably take down any of the captains, since Ichigo fought on par with them but barely even hurt Ulquiorra when he was in full Vizard form...

    And given that Ichigo could draw with Zaraki in normal form but it took bankai and a heavy beating AND temporarily turning into a hollow to beat Byakuya (and then he didn't actually even knock him out) I reckon Byakuya could probably stand up to Zaraki, especially given that his bankai managed to slow Ichigo down and Zaraki is already a lot slower than Byakuya and Ichigo are...

    Well, you mentioned it. But Byakuya reiatsu is very strong too. And also, his petals are moving very quick AND there's countless of them..

    Once could be a fluke and twice a coincidence, but thrice proves it's a real ability.
