Ichigo can add “tsundere” to his growing harem (I don’t think he had one before) as Riruka eagerly sneezes on him in order to deactivate her dollhouse power. He may want to think twice before going for a girl who soaks him in snot with such a happy face though. Speaking of girl troubles however, the big revelation was hearing Rukia’s voice momentarily through the shinigami badge. I know people have been disappointed about the lack of Rukia after Ichigo lost his shinigami powers and it looks she’s finally going to be involved again. Rukia can still see Ichigo obviously, and she could also use a gigai, so I’m not sure why she hasn’t visited Ichigo in so long (over a year?); it really shouldn’t have been goodbye at all. As for the snippet of her voice, it is possible it’s just a bit of Ichigo’s experience and memories leaking out from the shinigami badge or possibly the badge is acting as some sort of trasmitter, but Ginjou seems to know more than he’s saying. I still constantly doubt that he has revealed his complete intentions.
As for Inoue’s situation, none of my three hopes from last week were realized. I had gotten excited when Inoue turned around and Shigawara got stabbed through the chest, but was disappointed to find out that that was a fake-out as he had simply been knocked out by her “godly beauty”. I got excited again when Inoue suddenly darkened at hearing that he may have been the one who attacked Ishida, but unfortunately Shigawara’s bishounen boss Tsukishima arrives and the chapter cuts off there. Luckily there’s still a chance next week that she will either get killed or kick some ass herself; she seems to have the will to fight those who hurt her friends.
