Despite Ikkaku himself stating his Bankai awakens if it hits his enemy with it or if Ikkaku gets hit, he can also awaken it by spinning it in his hands, as that's how he filled the last half of the awakening gauge.
This episode is the first occurence in either the anime or manga in which Kuchiki Byakuya ever smiles, in this case in the Shinigami Cup Golden clip when Renji askes Byakuya if he uses Rukia's absence as an excuse for attending the Shinigami Womens association meetings to which he just pauses for a moment before smirking slightly.
(on the release of Edorad's zanpakutō)
Ikkaku: What the hell is that thing?
Edorad: A simple "What is that?" would have sufficed.
Ikkaku: So you figured out how tough I am, then?
Edorad: No. For an idiot like you who loves battle, I thought it necessary to carve fear into your bones that won't disappear no matter how much you struggle. So that never again do you feel like it would be fun to pick a fight with an Arrancar.
Edorad: (Thoughts on Ikkaku) He's not fighting to win. He's fighting for fun!
Yumichika: Also, please start preparations for Madarame Ikkaku's military funeral.
Keigo: What the hell's wrong with you?! What if he dies?
Yumichika: That's obvious. He'd be satisfied.
Keigo: Aren't you going to help him? You're his friend, right?!
Yumichika: Do you not see what's going on? Look how happy he is. Ikkaku's having fun.
(Ikkaku takes out a tooth)
Ikkaku: (To Edorad) That slap move with all the reiatsu focused in your hand, hurt like hell! You even knocked out a couple of my molars. Whatever. I'll just get that Akon guy to give me a deal on some new ones. (Stretching) All right then! Let's get back to business! I've got you all figured out. (Fighting stance) You're going to release your Zanpakutou whether you want to or not, within the next five or six attacks!
(Edorad and Ikkaku are in the midst of combat)
Ikkaku: (Annoyed) What's your problem? Why don't you use your Zanpakutou? Don't tell me you just wear it for show!
Edorad: We Arrancar have iron skin that no sword can cut. It acts as our armor. With a sword like yours, I can take you bare-handed!
Ikkaku: Is that so?
(Ikkaku attacks but Edorad blocks with his Zanpakutou)
Ikkaku: I see. I see you can at least tell when you're about to lose an arm.
(Ikkaku cut's off a bit of Edorad's mask)
Ikkaku: Damn, I missed? I was trying to chop off your head.
(Edorad's crushing Ikkaku)
Ikkaku: Man, I never woulda guessed there'd be this much of a difference in our power... No helping it, I guess... Since everyone one else is busy fighting as well, no one'll notice... (Pissed off) I didn't wanna use it in a place like this! Watch closely, but don't tell anyone! Bankai!
During Ikkaku's fight with the Arrancar, Yumichika calls for a spacial freeze to be placed around all the battles. Notice that Keigo doesn't react when Yumichika mentions Ichigo and Rukia as two of the people needing this spacial freeze.

Ikkaku is the third non-Captain level shinigami to achieve bankai, other than Renji and Ichigo.
Correction: Ukitiake clearly states that Ichigo is at the captain level, he just doesn't hold the rank of captain. Ikkaku is the second real shinigami under the "rank" of captain to achieve bankai.
Edorad Leones is the first Arrancar to release his Zanpakuto.
Ikkaku's ban-kai is called "Ryuumon Houzukimaru/ Dragon's Crest, Demon Light". It is at full power when the dragon on the middle blade is fully red.
Ikkaku is the first 3rd seat to use a ban-kai.
