Rukia and Ichigo have all the time had that nice dynamic. When Ichigo leaves she questions Captain Hirako if he is aware of why Ichigo was sporting such a painful expression on his face. Captain Hirako assumes it’s as a result of Ichigo’s zanpakto was damaged, however Rukia is aware of in her coronary heart that it’s greater than that.
Rukia instantly is aware of one thing is really incorrect with Ichigo and senses his struggling. This to me, simply cements the very fact in my thoughts that Rukia is and has all the time been “greatest woman” in the case of Ichigo. She really understands him and may see by his “masks”.
Ichigo is at the moment affected by the doubts Yhwach has positioned in his thoughts. Was his mom a Quincy? Is he on the best facet of this struggle? Meanwhile, the remaining captains of the 13 Court Guard Squads mourn the lack of their Head Captain Genryuusai.
There’s an enormous reveal that Kuchiki Bakuya and Kenpachi Zaraki have survived! I suppose meaning they didn’t want Orihime to heal them in spite of everything. But they’re nonetheless in a comatose state, so will probably be fascinating to see how this will get resolved.
Soi Fon is taking Genryuusai’s loss of life exhausting, however Kyouraku tells everybody they should be concentrating on defending Soul Society. Miyuri explains to Ichigo that his bankai can’t be “fastened” however modified and that it’ll by no means be the identical. In order to revive a banki a Shinigami has to infuse the zanpakto with their religious stress and thoughts.
Ichigo is taken to satisfy with Squad Zero, who’ve arrived from the Royal Palace. We uncover that the feminine mad scientist, Senjumaru Shutara, has damaged into Miyuri’s lab and confiscated Ichigo’s damaged zanpakto, Rukia, Renji, and Zaraki Zenpachi to be able to take all of them to the Royal Palace.
Urahara makes use of Kon to relay a message to Ichigo that Sado and Inoue are okay. Who is the mysterious man with them, nonetheless? Is he a buddy or foe?
Urahara believes in Ichigo and that if Ichigo merely does what he needs to do it can result in defending everybody in the long run.
In order for Ichigo’s Tensa Zangetsu to be repaired, it must be re-forged and this will solely be finished on the Royal Palace. Thus, Ichigo agrees to accompany Squad Zero again to the Royal Palace and will get to behold it. This is the very place that Aizen so desperately needed to go.
The members of Squad Zero are actually the “key” to get into the Royal Palace, and Aizen tried to create an “synthetic key”. Aizen’s plan was to kill the Soul King and grow to be a god. Senjumaru Shutara tells Ichigo that Aizen was evil, however that the Quincies are an excellent better evil that he must face.
It’s fascinating to marvel what Ichigo is considering when he hears these phrases since he’s already speculating that his mom may be a Quincy.
Later, Ichigo is taken to Tenjiro Kirinji’s therapeutic sizzling springs swimming pools the place Rukia, Renji, Bakuya and Kenpachi are all recovering from their accidents. Tenjiro is called the “Hot Spring Demon”. It will probably be fascinating to see what the opposite members of Squad Zero have in retailer for Ichigo whereas he’s visiting the Royal Palace. Will Ichigo finally get to satisfy the Soul King?
