Espada have thier Fraccion
Aizen can't rgenerate but has final from
Imcludes Gin and Tousen
No banaki stealing
Win via K.O? or death
All equipment for all, except for the stolen bankai
I don't blame Kubo for wanting to keep hot and kawaii female characters alive.
Anyways, weren't some of the strongest Stern Ritters killed by Yamamoto and Zaraki?
I do indeed believe the Espada should take this because they have more hax and overall, fire power on their side.
Including the fact that Aizen could solo the majority of them with KS (the same he did with Gotei 13)
Also, Ulquiorra and Barragan both pose as DANGEROUS threat in this fight, the reason why the Stern Ritters have been able to take over the Soul Society was because they had the element of surprise plus the fact that the Soul Society had just left from a recent war and were still making reparations for the Seireitei and all the Captains.
I think the Espada should be able to take this because of Aizen, Barragan, and Ulquiorra, those three should be enough to defeat the Stern Ritters.
Hmm. I'm a bit surprised. Despite being in the minority, I'm confident the Stern Ritter will prove themselves further.
Considering Gotei 13 in average power wise was better than Espada. Although I will say this Stern Ritter does have its fair shair low powered individuals.
But Stern Ritter does seem to have a better top tier fighters in numbers but we should wait for a bit.
Although part of the reason Gotei 13 struggled was loss of bankai.
@321zigzag1: The current Gotei 13 is much stronger than what they were when they faced the Espada
Well of course part of the reason is because they trained after their loss of bankai. I don't recall them gaining a notable boost during the time skip. Not saying they didn't get stronger of course though.
However I still say Stern Ritter does have its fair share of its low tier members. I say it has more low tier and high tier ones compared to the Espada because of its larger numbers and Stern Ritter should be superior overall.
