Okay so as you may or may not have know, After today's chapter bleach is going on a 5-6 week hiatus. Roughly two months. It's returning in the 41 issue of jump.. in September. Tite says this hiatus is needed so he can prepare himself for the remaining chapters of bleach to give it all. So I'm sorry to say, but it seems that's we're going to have to live without bleach for the rest of the summer. And it sucks considering he left us with, yet another cliff hanger.
This chapter was pretty standard. Shunsui explains why his friends have to bid Ichigo farewell, basically explaining that Ichigo could come back to the real world with a power so strong is could affect it. He gives them and Ichigo's family passes to travel and visit Ichigo in Soul Society if prior said were to happen. Keigo gets a little rough as Shunsui explains what's going on but he realizes what he means with another explanation.
After that we go back to Hueco Mundo where Inoue and Chad are resting after training. Inoue is enjoying the training and saving the Arrancar and wishes it would stay like it. Helping each other out. but without battling. Just helping others out.
Next we head to the Seireitei where it seems that the Vandenreich start their invasion. The seireitei seems to be replaced by the Vandenreich's palace and surrounding structures. As Ywach and Ishida speak about the Kaser Gesang he notes that there was a sequal "The sealed king of the Quincy regained his heartbeat after 9000 years, regained his intellect after 90 years, regained his power after 9 years, and regained the world after 9 days/" After this little schpeel ywach reveals that the world ends in 9 days.
And ending like this, something expected from Tite, leaves me and most likely other's biting at the jugular for more. Not even a cameo for Izuru to notify if he's dead or not, no small appearance Ichigo makes, just Tite messing with us again. A good chapter but i would have expected more for a chapter that starts a hiatus. Have a nice summer everyone! It's gonna be empty of bleach and full of anticipation.
