Before I get into the chapter, I would like to take a moment to announce the overhaul and revamp of the Bleach Wiki:Associate Groups. Salubri and I have been working on this. You'll be seeing a lot of changes to the projects coming up. The basic idea is to make working on the projects more fun while encouraging more people to join in. You can see the new look of the projects by visiting the Bleach Wiki:Article Improvement Project. We will be renaming "projects" to "units" to give them a more Bleach feel. People working on a unit will be officers, who by completing pages in the project, gain Kan. At the end of the month, whoever has the most kan in a project will win that month and get their name, winning amount and avatar placed on the page as the winner of that month. Check it out, see what you think, I'd love to hear feedback about it.
As for the chapter, pretty decent this week. It was a little odd seeing things jump straight into Hueco Mundo when they had only just decided to go last week so I was weirded out for a moment while I remembered back to last chapter. Looks like its just Ichigo, Nel, Pesche, Orihime, Sado and ... Urahara? Where is Uryu? Anyway, if Urahara is coming, it likely means he is going to fight and we know with Urahara, he never uses the same moves twice with that incredibly versatile Zanpakuto of his. Perhaps we may see that bankai that is "not meant for training others" finally. Who knows?
I do like this idea that they pointed out that Ichigo is going in to save the people who not long ago were his enemies. The last time he snuck into Hueco Mundo, he was fighting the Arrancar, now he is trying to save them. It seems we might be getting close to finally getting confirmation that the Vandenreich are Quincy. We know that they used condensed reishi to set fire to Hueco Mundo and this Kirge guy had what looked to be a quincy cross on him. Kubo will likely string us on for a while more before confirming anything but yeah, its pretty much settled that they are Quincy right now.
Looks like Kubo is bringing back everyone now. Loly, Menoly, Sung-Sun, Mila Rose, Appaci, all fighting against the Vandenreich. Interesting to see them all again, though Harribel's fraccion look much better equipped than Loly and Menoly. Should be interesting to see there.
One thing I would like to see is the serious side of Pesche. I get that he is largely comic relief but we have seen his serious side before and now his best friend is in danger. I'd really like to see him take this seriously and try and help his friend. Seeing as Nel is a useless child again, she will likely somehow return to her adult form when things become serious. But we shall see.
Anyway, as always, comments are very welcome, just keep them clean.
