Missing Bankai vs Beyond Ressurection Espada

Ok,
since the Bleach Anime is coming back in 2021 and Brave Souls recently released us updated form for the Espada (besides Luppi...) I was wondering if there might be a possibility of having a filler Arc in which the Espada would appear and all the missing Bankai could be shown.

If something like that would happen what pairings can you see happening.

Here is the missing Bankai list (not counting Hisagi and Shinji as they got covered in the Novel):
1. Oetsu Nimaiya
2. Senjomaru Shutara
3. Tenjiro Kirinji
4. Kirio Hikifune
5. Sosuke Aizen
6. Isshin Kurosaki
7. Yoruichi Shihōin
8. Tessai Tsukabishi
9. Love Aikawa
10. Jūshirō Ukitake
11. Lisa Yadōmaru
12. Tetsuzaemon Iba
13. Isane Kotetsu

As we have 11 Beyond Ressurecton Espada (sad Wonderweiss and Luppi did not get such forms) we would need to either pair 2 Shinigami or leave 2 out.

Here are my pairings (I decided to take Iba and Isane out as they are clearly much weaker than the rest):
1. Starrk - Isshin
Both seem the caring father-type and have blue-colored powers). Also didn't want Ukitake to have a rematch with Starrk who did not have any personal grudge against each other

2. Barragan - Aizen
Everyone wanted Barragan to betray Aizen and both are not on the best terms.

3. Harribel - Hikifune
Wanted Harribel to fight one of the stronger females and have a better opponent for Shutara. Another option was Yoruichi but she also has another opponent in my mind.

4. Ulquiorra - Kirinji
Both are fast-oriented fighters caring a spear. Also Ulquiorra's darkness works well against Kirinji's Light-powers

5. Nelliel - Lisa
The weaker females of the Group, both quite fast and carrying long-reach weapons (Lance vs Spear). Also both are a bit Knigh-themed (Lisa's mask and Nelliel's shoulder-pads)

6. Nnoitra - Oetsu
Totally can see Nnoitra against another Swordman. I can see this as a very intense Close Quarters Combat fight. Shutara also came across my mind but this one works better

7. Griimjow - Yoruichi
Feline-based, quick, close ranger fighter. Do I have to further explain?

8. Zommari - Tessai
Both seem to be long ranged Wizard-type of fighters.

9. Szayelaporro - Shutara
Another fight of the scientists.

10. Aaroniero - Ukitake
Really love to see enraged Ukitake to fight someone using his former's VC body.

11. Yammy - Love
Both physically strong. Also Yammy's beyond Ressurection form looks pretty demonic and fire based. Just like Love's powers so far.

Please share your thoughts and if you believe there is the slightest chance of something like this happening in the Anime (once it's back).

You can always use the Parallel Universe pattern, something I am very familiar with from the Star Trek franchise. This could really be a fascinating story!

As an Uryuu fan, I can't wait to finally see his Vollstaendig and see him fighting at his peak against Haschwalth. Looking at certain hints, I think it is possible that a battle between Uryuu and Ichigo was originally planned.

A fully developed Uryuu vs. Ulquiorra in his third form - that would be something. Also Orihime is nowadays much more mature and would be an asset during that fight.

Some of the pairings you mentioned are not of interest to me but others, definitely.

Yeah the story would be nice. Even prior to the Beyond Ressurection form being introduced I believed that if they decide to bring back the anime they could make a Regai-like saga but with Arrancar to re-introduce the main characters and to see some more match-ups between Espada and Captain (with possible Visored, Urahara Shop or even Fullbringer as support) since both fractions are very popular.

Still, I really hope the Anime will extend some of the fights and present some of the missing Bankai (like Love and Lisa against Gerard, Possible Royal Guard vs Sternritten or Aizen against Yhawach). The ones with lowest chance of being introduced are Yoruichi, Tessai, Isshin and, obviously, Ukitake...

Although I would like to know unknown bankai I am not a fan of fanservice fights. All bankai were revealed in big moments for each character, if they find a way though a plot to use cool if not it´s better not reveal.

I agree, shodic. I really disliked the tickbox pattern in the Winter War story: Let's give everyone a fight. As I keep saying, if everyone of Aizen's group would have attacked the pillars immediately, together Aizen would have won easily. But, no - people have to wait in line and follow the one on one rule, no matter how idiotic it can be.

I guess everyone has their own taste;-) I really liked that most characters had their own fight in The Arrancar Arc and was even disappointed that Iba, Yachiru, Isane, Nemu, Nanao, Sasakibe and Tessai got none.
I did even describe it in my First ever post on this forum:

It is also something I liked in early One Piece or Fairy Tail (the fact that each Character was getting a fight).

Another master is the fact that I hate information being left out. Especially as interesting as a missing Bankai. It gives you the feeling the autor did not have idea for one...and since Bleach had so many fights most of The Bankai should've been introduced especially with almost 30 Stern Ritten.

So I prefer to get those Bankai in any form than never:)

She's a captain so she rather has one.
She doesn't, Captains from the 4th Squad don't require it, specially since it's a spot that's never empty.

Isane didn't rose to captain, she was chosen to fill the spot because of how crucial that spot is.
