This was an interesting chapter. Nice to see the often comical relationship between Rukia and Ichigo is still going strong as well as the serious bond between them. Ichigo (and Zangetsu's) new look is pretty awesome and the fact that Ichigo is in "Pwn mode" like he was against Aizen is also enjoyable. While it was nice to see Ichigo's other Friends/Allies from the Soul Society, I was disappointed that this wasn't the explaining kind of chapter I was actually hoping for. Still a good issue though. And of course I look forward to next weeks issue.
