And This Wasn’t Even The Best Part Of The Chapter
Certainly it was nice to see Zaraki back fighting again and kind of toying with Yammy, but there were much more interesting things in this chapter. One thing of course was that Kurotsuchi showed up with a way for Ichigo to go back to the real world. It’s a bit deus ex machina, but it brings about the scenario that Ichigo might need to make use of his unstable powers right away and won’t be able to. Basically, he probably can’t swoop in and save the day. However – and this is what ended up being most interesting to me about this chapter – Unohana is going with him, and given her supposed power and how almost everyone in Soul Society appears afraid of her, I’m very curious to see if she’ll finally show some of her battle potential. It’d be awesome to see her take on Ichimaru or something, and I’m really hoping that she’s not being used here just to save Hiyori or heal the other injured. Come to think of it though, this is happening so fast that it doesn’t appear at this point that Inoue is going with them, so odds are that if Hiyori is to be saved, Unohana is going to have to do it.
