A while back we had an issue where on occasion, when obtaining your zanpakutou you'd get a blank one, with no boosts or abilities. It was pretty troubling. However, it gave me an idea. What if this were an intentional feature?
Now hear me out, I know most people would go "What are you thinking?!
Blank Zanpakutou's? So we have to remake?" This isn't what I'm suggesting at all.
I suggest they be a sort of "key". The system/feature would work like so.
You're a fledgling shinigami, you just spoken to the teacher and graduated.
In the process of getting your Zanpakutou, you're given a blank that has no special abilities or boosts.
Discouraging, yes? Well this is also your key into special squads within Seireitei. The Onmitsukido, Hakuda(hand to hand combat)specialists. Or alternately, for the rei users the Kido Corps.
Each would have it's own respective benefits suiting their squad. These might be special techniques, boosts or otherwise.
