(still taking bets on Deicide lasting through the end of the arc! This is officially the longest series of numbered Bleach chapter titles ever -- even Turn Back the Pendulum stopped at 11, and before that, the longest was End of Hypnosis with 9.)
Hahaha, Zangetsu is not a fan of Karakura Town. It sounds like Ichigo's various hollowfications have what, made him lose his ambition beyond survival. T_T
BUT ALSO OMFG HICHIGO HAS TURNED INTO THE SCARY HOLLOW ICHITHINGY. OMG AND ICHIGO WILL HAVE TO FIGHT IT WON'T HE. WAH I FORESEE A LOT OF PAIN FOR ICHIGO IN THE NEXT 2-3 CHAPTERS WHY IS LIFE SO UNFAIR. T_T
Awww, the Keigo vs Tatsuki exchange about Mizuiro was so adorable, especially when they got too embarrassed to discuss it further. SO CUTE. Though I wonder where Mizuiro is! According to the map in SOULS, he actually doesn't live in Karakura Town; he lives just beyond its border, so could he still be in the real world wondering why the hell he can't enter Karakura Town?
...did Aizen get taller again. :| Also, it doesn't look like he's wearing anything underneath that overcoat.
As expected, Tatsuki and Keigo are able to withstand Aizen's ~powers of existence~ -- does that mean they've been secretly training and have awesome reiatsu-using techniques now? :D? :D? I bet Tatsuki would fight similarly to Yoruichi and Soi Fon.
JFC, Aizen, is there anything you don't know? :| :| So he's basically just loitering in Karakura Town waiting for Ichigo and his awesome new technique to show up. So we're going to find out just what it is exactly that Aizen intends to do with him, I guess!
And of course the chapter ends on a Shadowy Foot of Doom or Perhaps Salvation. OF COURSE. Kubo, you big meanie. ♥♥♥
