2 New Episodes Tonight!
A little recap of last week!
Ichigo’s father, Isshin, killed the Grand Fisher hollow (you know, the one that killed Ichigo’s mom). Then Isshin talked to Urahara about the ‘visoreds’ (or vizards, whichever) who are broken masked arrancars (soulless soul reapers), they HATE soul reapers. It seems they are preparing for battle.
Souske Aizen made a deal with the arrancar and the plan will be complete in another year or so, and then he’ll lead an army of Menos Grandes.
Shinji showed up at school acting like nothing had happened. He made a move on Orihime, so Ichigo yanked him outside to ‘talk’. Shinji told him that he’d follow him around until he joined his group. Because once the symptoms started, he’ll never be normal again - he’ll lose his sanity.
After school, Shinji met up with Hiyori, another vizard. She beat him up when he didn’t produce Ichigo. When Chad & Orihime showed up, Hiyori wanted to kill them; so Shinji picked her up and flew away - and then calmed her down.
Uyru went to see his father, Ryuken, to tell him that he accepted his offer to restore his Quincy powers and that he wouldn’t associated with Soul Reapers or their allies.
Ichigo returned from school and didn’t react when his father attacked him. He went to his room. Kon almost told him about his father being a soul reaper, but Lirin reminded him that they weren’t supposed to tell him. Ichigo fell onto his bed, depressed, and asked them to leave him alone. Ichigo started to think about his mask and his inner voice; he heard it talking and taunting him.
Karin came into his room and told him that she knew he was a soul reaper.
In the Soul Society, an alarm went off telling soul reaper guards that two beings were in Karakura Town.
Back in Ichigo’s room, Ichigo pretended that he didn’t know what Karin was talking about. They heard a loud explosion somewhere in Karakura Town. Ichigo had to become a soul reaper in front of his sister.
Back in the Soul Society, a report was given to Captain Yamamoto about two fully developed arrancars in Karakura Town.
There’s a huge hole in a forested section of Karakura Town. A large man climbed out of it, while townspeople slowly came toward it. The large man, Yammy, accused the people of staring at him and began sucking their souls from their bodies. The people’s lifeless bodies fell to the ground.
Chad & Orihime, who were some way away, saw the souls in the sky and rushed forward… they began to see dead bodies.
Yammy and the other arrancar, Ulquiorra, discussed that they were there to kill only one… and that no one can see them, except for those with spiritual powers. The others that were there were only ‘trash’.
Tatsuki, their schoolfriend, was out jogging, and came upon the arrancars, but she wasn’t dead. Yammy was about to finish her off when Chad and Orihime rushed forward. Orihime dragged her off, while Chad blocked Yammy; but Yammy defeated Chad. Orihime goes back to Chad.
Ulquiorra pronounced them all ‘trash’ and Yammy went to kill them all, but Orihime put up a shield, but Yammy broke it. Orihime then healed Chad. She then decided not to try to wait for Ichigo to save them; she’d determined to do something on her own. She ‘rejected’ and Yammy just brushed it off like a fly.
Yammy then asked Ulquiorra if they should maybe take her back to see Aizen; Orihime recognized the name. Ulquiorra said no, “kill her”. Yammy started to reach for her, but he was blocked by Ichigo’s zanpakuto.
Yammy: “Just who the hell are you?”
