Due to the double-issue of Shounen Jump, Bleach, Naruto and One Piece came out on Saturday, so I got some catching up to do. In this chapter, Ichigo continues to battle Kirge in Hollow-Land.
While Ichigo is in Hueco Mundo battling Kirge, the rest of the Vandenreich mobilizes to invade Soul Society. In the sands of Hueco Mundo, Kirge thinks that he hit Ichigo with all of his attacks, but Ichigo catches a blast and tosses it right back at Kirge. Orihime and Chad arrive and Ichigo lets Orihime take care of Nel. Kirge recovers and Ichigo states that Kirge's attack are more powerful than Uryu's, but Kirge let slip that it's impossible. Kirge then realizes that he is giving away unnecessary information and states he's just going to defeat Ichigo, and then he powers up using the Letzt Stil (the Quincy glove power-up that Uryu used against Mayuri?). Nearby, Urahara and Pensche rescue Dondochakka, and Urahara senses something.
It seems that the Quincies are going to invade Soul Society to exact their vengeance. We'll have to see what kind of mess they cause in Soul Society and how their strong fighter match up with the officers of the Gotei 13. Meanwhile in Hollw-Land, the battle between Ichigo and Kirge is starting to heat up and Kirge transforms using the glove, but we all know that Ichigo will kick Kirge's ass because the laws of the Bleach state that nobody can out-transform/power-up Ichigo. The most interesting bit was when Kirge was talking about Uryu being more powerful than he is. Uryu and his father might not be allied with the Vandenreich, but they are Quincies survivor and so perhaps the Vandenreich hold them in special regard. I suppose Uryu is probably due for a power-up too given how many Ichigo has had. Perhaps Uryu and his dad also know something about the Vandenreich invasion plan too.
