When I saw the title of the chapter the first thing I could think of was the band Panic! At The Disco. It would be cool for me if Kubo was a fan of American punk rock, but even if the reference was just a coincidence, it does sum up the gist of this chapter pretty well. Inside the dollhouse, Ichigo is left with no clue of what’s going on in his standard ultra-high-tension training featuring some crazed Yakuza pig fighting him to the death for the right to stay human. I assume he is a normal human soul placed inside a stuffed animal though, so I’m surprised Ichigo is having trouble against him; I mean he’s basically a giant Kon and with his skills Ichigo should do fine even without shinigami powers.
Now apparently though he needs the full-bringer powers to get back his shinigami powers. There was the dreaded long (non)explanation by Riruka right in the middle of battle; and I assume either time just stopped or Mr. Pork decided to take a break so she could finish. I felt all the talking was pretty pointless and Riruku ended up being pretty annoying, and as a result the story didn’t progress very much. There was pretty much just one main point in this chapter: as has been hinted before, his shinigami badge is finally brought back when Chad tells Ichigo that the badge is probably the key to the powers. Just as that is revealed though, Mr. Pork goes into Mad Beast Mode; while I found it pretty funny, it also just feels like a recycling of Yammy’s “Getting angrier, getting bigger” routine. This guy will probably get taken out pretty soon anyway.
