Well, I expected for more than one comment, but I thank any person who read (and the only person who commented) in the last post, and I hope some people will have time to comment here.

Anyway, I don't know what to think about this chapter. Knowing more about Xcution's past is something that I think everyone had expected for in the last couple of chapters, but was all the cut pictures enough to satisfy needs of readers that had developed into something even bigger than that in the last few weeks ever since Xcution was known as enemies of Ichigo instead of allies?

I really liked Yukio's and Jackie's flashbacks. More than the insane Giriko who killed his own wife, more than the weird Riruka who locked someone inside her own Fullbring only because he looked "hot"... Yukio's flashback was incredible. It was so full of details yet only something like two pages, which is something Kubo (Who is known as someone who really likes wasting pages) usually don't succeed to do. I was in page 12 when I felt like the single chapter is far longer than usual, and I, for the first time in something like 10 weeks, was having fun reading the chapter. Jackie's flashback made me almost cry, the little story of her new boots that she tried to keep it clean and how the first thing to ever dirty it was her brother's blood was something unusual. Something special.

I think that the personalities of Jackie, Giriko, Yukio and Riruka was far clearer after looking at their pasts - How Yukio is so quiet but actually seems to be a genius from his birth, how Riruka's personality today was developed from how she behaved to her sister and the boy she loved...

Even though I liked all of the flashbacks and this chapter in general, the scene with Rukia in the end was more interesting than most of the scenes Rukia usually have. She showed the "arrogance" Riruka couldn't take, and seems to be punished by that. I can't wait to see the next chapter, even though it seems like it will mostly include Byakuya's ("plan"/) battle against Tsukishima.

In conclusion, I think this is one of the more interesting chapters Kubo had. There was nothing that seems to be meaningless about this chapter. Every detail counts.
