I'm not really sure what sloth has to do with anything that happened in this chapter, but okay. >.>
So Rudobon's Arbola just keeps creating Fracción? They should've sent him to Karakura Town. I hope Rukia is okay (and where the hell are Renji and Chad?) :S
...what are those black drops as Ulquiorra releases? Is it blood? o.o Also, Ulquiorra's release is seriously badass-looking. THE ANGEL OF DEATH!1. And then he totally ruins the effect by being all "let me offer some paternal guidance" to Ichigo. Which is just business as usual for Ulquiorra and not at all scary. >.>
Most importantly, looks like Ichigo can hold his own even against released!Ulquiorra. YAY!
(And what's going on with Ichigo's mask on page 19? Did it always cover up part of his hair like that? :O
Also, did Kubo and FMA's Arakawa conspire to put out super-action heavy chapters this time around?)
