Prior events are recalled.
Sōsuke Aizen, Kaname Tōsen, and Gin Ichimaru prepare to leave for the Human World, along with the top three Espada and their Fracción, to destroy Karakura Town and create the Ōken, Aizen telling Orihime Inoue to wait there until they finish destroying Karakura Town. Before they depart, Ulquiorra Cifer breaks free from the Caja de Negacion to protect Las Noches in Aizen's absence.
Upon arriving, they find Captain-Commander Genryūsai Shigekuni Yamamoto and the remaining captains standing guard in a Fake Karakura Town. Aizen, aware it is a fake, states he will simply defeat them here and create the Ōken in Soul Society. Summoning his remaining forces to the field to battle the Gotei 13, he is caught by Yamamoto's Jōkaku Enjō. As the Captain-Commander gives the order, the battle begins.
Later, during the battle between Lieutenant Rangiku Matsumoto and Tier Harribel's Fracción, the former is saved by the timely arrival of Lieutenant Momo Hinamori. Soon after, Harribel's Fracción use Quimera Parca to summon the behemoth Ayon, who begins overwhelming the lieutenants. Defeating the beast, Yamamoto incapacitates Franceska Mila Rose, Cyan Sung-Sun, and Emilou Apacci.
Later, Harribel, stirred by the defeat of her comrades, gets serious in her fight with Captain Tōshirō Hitsugaya while Captain Shunsui Kyōraku faces off against Coyote Starrk, who reveals himself as the Primera Espada. As Captain Suì-Fēng and Lieutenant Marechiyo Ōmaeda prepare to face off against Baraggan Louisenbairn, all three Espada begin to exert their Reiatsu, sending shockwaves across the battlefield.
Meanwhile, Ulquiorra, speaking to Orihime, asks her if she is afraid. Recalling the events leading up to this point, she states she is not afraid, for her heart is with her friends. Questioning her statement, Ulquiorra is interrupted by Ichigo Kurosaki smashing through the floor to arrive where Ulquiorra and Orihime are. As he tells Ulquiorra to step away from Orihime, Ulquiorra unsheathes his sword, much to Ichigo's surprise, and they begin clash while Orihime looks on.
Radio Kon features the host's accomplishments in the different Omake segments:
In the Arrancar Encyclopedia he defeated Aizen, Gin, and Tōsen.
As he says we can expect more great things from him, a tag on the screen tells the audience everything Kon said was a lie.
