Uryū Ishida easily dispatches one of Obuta's gang members. Before he can do anything else though, Ichigo Kurosaki jumps in and takes down another one. The two get into an argument, while simultaneously fighting and beating most of the gang members. However, Yokochini shows up and states that he also has a score to settle with him, although Ichigo clearly doesn't remember him. However, everyone is suddenly interrupted by Ikumi Unagiya, Ichigo's boss, who single-handedly and rather quickly knocks out the rest of the remaining gang members, grabs Ichigo and hauls him off in a similar manner to a kidnapping.
After tying him up and hauling him back to her house, Ikumi deals with her problem with people calling in trying to order "Unagiya Eel", which she actually doesn't sell. We also learn that she acts rather differently and motherly towards her son, Kaoru Unagiya, who hates Ichigo. After taking Kaoru out of the room, Ikumi returns to talk with Ichigo, but they are interrupted by the mysterious stranger from yesterday. He offers Ichigo some Ramen and asks if he can come in since he has a job he needs done. Ichigo becomes frustrated by his arrival and asks why he is following him, however the man states that running into Ichigo is actually a coincidence.
After sitting down the man lays a picture down on the table. It is revealed to be a picture of Ichigo's dad, Isshin Kurosaki. Ichigo's frustration as he calls out the guy for lying about their meeting being a coincidence. Ichigo also demands to know exactly how and what he knows about his dad. He tells Ichigo there are things that Ichigo doesn't know about his father. Before their conversation can go any further, Ikumi interrupts and tells him that she will review the information and get back to him about the job. Before leaving, he tells Ichigo to stop by Urahara's Shop before going home.
Ichigo decides to take the man's advice and stops by Urahara's shop. He finds Karin Kurosaki leaving it. Surprised by this, Ichigo doesn't reveal his location and spies on her from a distances as she leaves. The man appears again and tells Ichigo that there is a lot of things he still doesn't know. The man finally introduces himself to Ichigo as Kūgo Ginjō. Kūgo invites Ichigo to join his group, and hands him an "Xcution" card before leaving After getting home, Ichigo is met by Orihime Inoue, who gives him a lot of leftover bread from her part-time job. She asks if everything is okay, but Ichigo deflects all of her questions and just says that everything is fine. Ichigo asks why she suspects if anything is wrong and Orihime says that it was just intuition, and that she is just overreacting. Ichigo compliments this part of her personality.
Outside, Uryū is seen standing. Apparently he too was worried about Ichigo. Suddenly, Uryū spots a man walking on the power lines. The stranger quickly teleports away (using a technique similar to Shunpo). Uryū gives chase and remarks at the man's incredible speed, despite the fact that his Reiatsu isn't changing. Suddenly and abruptly, the man turns a 180 and rushes right at Uryū. Back at his house, Ichigo is looking at the card Kūgo gave him, when he hears sirens outside. The sirens arrive to help Uryū, who has been badly injured and is laying in a pool of blood.
Shinigami Illustrated Picture Book
Jinta Hanakari is shown angry towards Tessai Tsukabishi, stating that he shouldn't simply pound on his head like that because he might get brain damage and threatened him to show himself. But Tessai suddenly appeared behind Jinta and grappled him, while Ururu Tsumugiya also appeared and tickled Jinta's foot with her hair. This caused a ruckus in their shop, with Jinta pleading them to stop, saying that Karin is still around. Karin is then shown leaving the shop, speechless on what is happening inside.
