The Soul Society arc finally appears to be drawing to a close. In this volume, Renji fights Byakuya, Zaraki fights Tosen, Gin baits Rukia--and Rukia gets to look pretty, helpless and tragic as her death approaches and the Soul Society erupts into chaos all around her. I was glad to see Rukia, but I am very much looking forward to seeing her taking an active role in events once more. The damsel-in-distress role doesn’t suit the character I first met, and loved.

As always, I love the character design in this series. I tend to skim over the art in the fight scenes, but when it comes to characters’ expressions, I think Tite Kubo is *awesome.*

And how much did I snicker at Yachiru calling Ichigo Itchy? (I’d thought she’d nicknamed him Ichi, although that may just be another case of fandom leading me wrong.)
