Page 3 of 359 - Conclusion of the Death Match! White Pride and Black Desire
Orihime and the others can do little but watch while Ichigo and Byakuya settle their differences. Ichigo may have been able to draw blood from his opponent, but to Byakuya it is but a scratch - although the indignity of suffering a wound at the hands of a lowly ryoka means that, now, he really means business...
60 - Truth of Despair, the Dagger that has been Brandished
Central 46 is the highest judicial body of the Soul Society. Hitsugaya has been trying to reach them, to bring them word of the killing of Aizen and the moves by some to subvert the Soul Society - but when he reaches their chamber, he finds them all dead, slain in their seats. They've been dead for some time, too, meaning that any orders purporting to come from Central 46 recently have all been fake. But who was responsible, and why?
61 - Aizen Stands Out! His Terrifying Ambition
Aizen and Ichimaru have transported themselves to the execution site, where they've also brought Renji and Rukia. Rukia seems to be who they're interested in, as Renji is ordered to leave her and back away. Sensing that something's not right, he refuses, just as Captain Unohana uses her lieutenant's telephatic powers to warn the remaining leaders of the Soul Society & Ichigo's group of Aizen's actions. With that now out in the open, Ichigo and the Soul Society must join forces to save Rukia - again - and deal with Aizen...
62 - Congress Together! The Strongest Shinigami Organisation
The standoff with Aizen at the execution site continues. Turns out that Aizen had slaugtered the Central 46 long before Rukia's return to Seireitei - her execution order had been issued by him, his way of getting his hands on her to recover the hogyoku hidden inside her. Now that he has his hands on it, his plans can move to the next stage - and not even the sheer weight of numbers lining up against him seem able to stop him...
63 - Rukia's Resolution, Ichigo's Feelings
Life is beginning to return to normal in Seireitei, although Ichigo's still doing his best to stir things up - having shown his prowess on many occasions since his mission to rescue Rukia began, he's still trying to prove himself against the Soul Society's best fighters, and has become almost an accepted part of the scenery. For some, though, the emotional damage caused by Aizen's betrayal run deep. Even Rukia's been in a noticeably depressed mood, despite being rescued from her brush with death - and Orihime's just discovered that she's gone missing...
