Continuing right along from last time in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, Isshin reveals that they can spend two thousand hours in the Precipice World. Contrary to what some people were hoping, it looks like there will be a training arc, or at least the training will be shown parallel to Aizen’s hour in Karakura Town. Considering Aizen was the one who destroyed the sweeper, I doubt he has a clue what Ichigo is doing. While their method isn’t very original, it is nice to see something new coming up (a berserk Zangetsu maybe). Ichigo is in sore need of a power-up, though I have a feeling this “Final Getsuga” will not be enough and his SSJ3 hollow form will be needed once again.
This chapter was mainly setup, and hopefully the next few will progress more quickly and not drag out the training. The main question now is how Aizen will go about making his Key, and how much he can do in an hour before Ichigo (or someone else) shows up. With Gin’s powers, simply destroying Karakura Town would be pretty simple, but at the moment next to nothing has been revealed about the King’s Key. Now that Tatsuki has shown up in the story, it’s possible she may play a larger part in this war as well, so I’m looking forward to that; anything is possible at this point.
