I-I dunno man. Kenpachi got his ass manhandled by Royd, manhandled by Unohana (though that wasn't really a fight than a lesson) beat Gremmy but then manhandled by a group of sluts, and then humiliated by Pernida again. Bya has it even worse and let's not even BEGIN with Soifon. Just keep that bitch down.
Zaraki got jobbed and had Pernida gain his stats just so Nemu could look more impressive than he/Mayuri and Shunsui...oh Shunsui. All 3 of them looked badass at first and then the troll hammer came down like never before.
Hitsu will shine, no doubt but you might just end up regretting teh ending.
As for Byakuya? We'll see when Haschwalth's a puddle of blood on the ground. Him or Ouetsu
I liked Jonathan's death a lot and it was ballsy for him to forgive DIO all things considered but all that just ties back to him being a really nice and upstanding guy. Pity, if Phantom Blood had the quirkiness Araki showed in the later parts, he wouldn't get such a bad rep.
