Interesting Questions, Facts, and Information
Hinamori Momo. Hinamori's Zanpakuto, Tobiume is a kido-type Zanpakuto. Urahara's Benihime is released with the chant "okiro" (awaken). Syazel's Fornicaras is activated by "susure" (sip) and Cirucci Thunderwitch's Golondrina, "kakire" (rip off).
I hope you have enjoyed my quiz! :3 "BANZAI!"
Two crescents back-to-back. Nelliel Tu Oderschvank's (or simply Nel Tu) Zanpakuto is called Gamuza and when released, she has the features of a centaur. Yachiru's Zanpakuto has a flower pattern for a guard, while the window-like guard belongs to Byakuya's Senbonzakura. No one has a skull for their Zanpakuto's guard, but Nelliel's hollow mask is the shape of a skull.
Their appearance changes and their hollow powers are released. An Arrancar transforms drastically as they release their Zanpakutos. Their original powers are restored, making their initial release state just as strong as a Shinigami's Bankai. Their appearance changes according to their original hollow form. This is known as "resurreccion". An example of this is Grimmjow Jeagerjaques who turns into a panther-human when he releases Pantera. This reflects him being a panther-hollow before becoming an Arrancar. A Vizard can call out their inner hollow, which will result in their mask reappearing and giving them a power boost. However, this has nothing to do with a Zanpakutos release.
She slings it over her shoulder vertically. Minazuki is tied to a rope and slung over Unohana's shoulder like a strap bag. Sometimes, her lieutenant Isane carries it for her instead. When released, Minazuki materializes into a giant one-eyed ray-like creature which, instead of eating you, will heal you in its stomach.
Izuru Kira. Wabisuke is an interesting Zanpakuto of Kira's. It means "miserable man", and is named so because when one cannot carry their own weight after being attacked by Wabisuke, they would fall to the ground and their heads would be lowered, almost like in an apology. It also has a very odd shape. Matsumoto's Zanpakuto is Haineko which can turn into dust and Yumichika's Zanpakuto Fujikujaku steals its opponent's spiritual power. Ikkaku's Houzukimaru is a spear-like blade which can turn into a three section staff. Ikkaku has also achieved Bankai.
The wielder's spiritual energy. The greater a shinigami's spiritual power, the larger their Zanpakuto appears. However, a high level shinigami must be able to control their spiritual energy and compress the sizes of their swords, otherwise a captain-level shinigami would end up swinging around swords the size of skyscrapers. This is explained by Kurosaki Isshin after defeating the Grand Fisher.
all of these have been seen (Hyorinmaru, Zangetsu, Zabimaru). A Zanpakuto is shown to have a soul and shape of its own, and sometimes its spirit will materialize itself in the real world. Ichigo's Zangetsu takes the form of a middle aged man in a cloak with a flashy headgear. Abarai Renji's Zabimaru looks like a baboon with a serpent's head for a tail. The spirit Hyorinmaru, which belongs to Hitsugaya, is a large, Chinese dragon entirely of ice.

Strawberry. Ichigo is a high school student who is forced to take up the job as 'Soul Reaper' after the female Soul Reaper whom Ichigo meets is injured. At first he does not seem to care about or want the job, but grows into it over time. However, the female Soul Reaper is severely punished for entrusting her powers to Ichigo in later volumes. His nickname is mentioned on one of the first pages of the Volume.
Kaiten Anashuba. Kon is the name that Ichigo gives to the defective Soul Candy, which Ichigo accidentally ingests without knowing it is defective. In his body, the other soul gets up to mischief at the expense of Ichigo, perving on girls and jumping around town like a maniac. Despite this, the soul will not physically harm anyone. Ichigo decides not to destroy the Soul Candy, and instead put it in a plush toy, becoming its new body. He names it Kon after the real name for Soul Candy, 'konpaku'. Ise is the very strict 2nd seat of 8th company, in comparison with 8th company captain Shunsui Kyoraku, who lazes around sleeping all day and trying to flirt with women, especially Ise. Menos Grande is the name of a large Hollow, which is thousands of times as big as they normally are. They are extremely dumb however, and are not very tactical in battle. All Hollows, when not in our world, live in Hueco Mundo, a wasteland where every Hollow lives.
Hanataro Yamada. The 2nd seats of the Guard Companies act under their captain. They are almost as strong as their captains, and almost all of them can achieve bankai.

She has blonde hair and exceptionally large breasts. She makes no effort to conceal her breasts, wearing loose-fitting robes that expose her cleavage, using them to try to win over male characters, and using them as a topic in conversation. She always complains to her captain, that her breasts are simply too big and how she always has to try hard to look nice. She is very carefree, usually avoiding her jobs so that she can sleep or go drinking.
Ikkaku Madarame. The 13 Guard Companies are the fighting force of Soul Reapers. Each company specialises in a certain part of combat, such as 'kido', which are spells.

Kurotsuchi sees everything as an experimental subject, and he vivisects anything that he wants to and is able to.
Rantentu. A zanpakuto is the name of a Soul Reaper's sword. Unlike a quincy, who uses energy around him to attack, a Soul Reaper uses energy from inside himself to attack. Unless a zanpakuto is of the 'constant-release' variety, which always releases energy, a zanpakuto has three forms, a form which looks just like a sword, a released form called 'shikai' where the sword may or may not have more distinct characteristics, and the final, hard-to-attain form 'bankai', where the zanpakuto has incredibly distinct characteristics and almost has a life of its own. Only higher-ranked Soul Reapers can achieve bankai. Zangetsu is the name of Ichigo's zanpakuto, Zabimaru is Renji's, and Benihime is Kisuke's.
Don Kanonji. Urahara Shoten is a mysterious and enigmatic shop which seems to deal in items for Soul Reapers. It is run by Kisuke Urahara, who is even more mysterious, and who seems to have links with the Soul Society. Jinta and Ururu and the small boy and girl who help around the shop are shown to be quite strong fighters.

Soul Candies are little pellets that a person ingests, which allows their body to remain animated when they are in Soul Reaper form.
