The FIRST & ONLY club dedicated to the Zanpakutos of Bleach
This club was started because of the Zanpakuto Arc where the Zanpakutos have become more then just swords for Soul Society and have taken human forms. It was just going to be about them but I didn't want to exclude the rest of the Zanpakutos that existed either if they belonged to Shinigamis or Arrancars.

The Zanpakuto Arc Episode Information:
Zanpakuto Unknown Tales: Episodes 230 - 255
Beast Sword Arc: Episodes 256 - 265
Each zanpakutō is a manifestation of its owner's soul, and has a unique name that a Shinigami is required to learn in order to use its Shikai and Bankai. As such, each zanpakutō has unique abilities that match their owner's characteristics and personality, and their names usually hint to what these powers may be.
Sealed: Most zanpakutō look like regular katana, with slight variations between them as one would expect between different swords.
Shikai: the second form (or first "upgraded" form) available to a zanpakutō. To activate it, the Shinigami needs to learn the name of their zanpakutō. This is not as easy as simply picking a name, as the living spirit of the zanpakutō already has its own name. Therefore, the Shinigami must be able to communicate and harmonize with their zanpakutō effectively, which requires being able to speak to the spirit within its world.
Bankai: the second and final upgraded form of a zanpakutō. To achieve it, one must be able to materialize their zanpakutō's spirit in the real world and subjugate it, giving the Shinigami full reign over the zanpakutō's power.
Melee: Are typically designed for various forms of armed melee combat rather than magic-based abilities.
Kido: Are designed around a special ability rather than close combat potential.
Projectile: When released separate into many air based blades that the owner can control freely.
Defense: Are designed around defensive capability with little or no offense.
Fire: Designed to manipulate fire for various forms of attack or defense.
Ice: Designed to manipulate ice for various forms of attack or defense.
Earth: Designed to manipulate the ground for various forms of attack or defense.
Wind: Designed to manipulate wind for various forms of attack or defense.
Water: Designed to manipulate water (and related effects) for various forms of attack or defense.
Plant: Designed for the manipulation of plant growth for offense or defense.
Light: Designed to manipulate light for various effects.
Poison: Designed to administer poison as a form of attack.
Electricity: Designed for manipulation of lightning for offense or defense.
Constant Release: Zanpakutō that are always in Shikai form because of the strength of their wielder's spiritual energy.
Dual Blade: Zanpakutō that feature more than one blade in Shikai release. It is decidedly rare for one to possess such a weapon and therefore it says a lot about the uniqueness of its wielder's spiritual power.
Arrancars possess zanpakutōs and can perform a technique similar to a Shinigami's release called Resurrección. Unlike a Shinigami's zanpakutō, however, an Arrancar's zanpakutō is simply the Arrancar's Hollow powers sealed into the shape of a weapon. By releasing their zanpakutō in the same manner as a Shinigami, an Arrancar can release his or her Hollow powers. Most known Resurrección give the Arrancar user an animal-like appearance. While most unreleased Shinigami zanpakutō take the form of a katana or wakizashi, there is a significantly broader range for Arrancars.
