As it turns out, Ginjou isn’t really a match for Ichigo any more than the other fullbringers were to the shinigami they fought. It’s a flashy fight and they exchange a few blows, but Ichigo quickly cuts down Ginjou, which is rather surprising actually since Ginjou is no mere human full-bringer — he is shinigami and hollow as well. Things take strange turn though as a severely injured Tsukishima attacks Ichigo from behind,and is intercepted by Rukia, who in turn is intercepted by Riruka. And yes, Riruka has been hiding in Rukia all this time (I guess she thought Rukia was cute). Riruka ends up taking a slash to the chest, but Tsukishima seems a whole lot more concerned about Ginjou. This is where it became a little confusing: it seems that Ginjou was the one who “saved” all the fullbringers and brought everyone together while he was a shinigami, but now by defeating Ginjou, Ichigo has apparently “saved” him in turn. And since Bleach will always be Bleach, we’ve just about reached the right time for the flashbacks and sob stories to kick in and for the bad guys to explain exactly why they are so bad.
In general though, barely anything happened in this chapter; Bleach progression in the manga has always been sluggish, and I can’t help but feel that things would be more interesting if we read several chapters at once, rather than one per week.
