Hanatarou’s way to get to the Shrine of Penitence is by way of the below ground water tunnels that run all through the entire Seireitei and would permit them to proceed any location unobstructed. Ganju inquires if the other Shinigami would understand of this location, since all they did was to raise an commonplace floor tile. Hanatarou answers that only the 4th Division focused in respite and provision, understand their way round the maze of tunnels – not because they use it as provide paths, as Ganju had envisaged, but because, being the weakest partition that gets all the chores shoved on them, cleansing here is furthermore their job. Ganju remarks that the 4th Division should be unbelievably pathetic, but Hanatarou giggles and states that it isn’t too bad. Ichigo inquires him why he is so eager to help them get to the Shrine of Penitence regardless of their being his enemies. Hanatarou calmly answers that he had perceived all about Ichigo from Rukia, and turns his head to face Ichigo, inquiring him to delight save Rukia.
Iemura from the 4th Squad is giving his arranged report to the accumulated lieutenants (not all present), saying that nearly all of the 11th Squad has been annihilated, and two high-ranking agents Ikkaku and Yumichika both have left the front lines due to grave wound, and the 4th Division is actually enquiring wound rank of the other divisions. All of the lieutenants are alarmed by this, as Iemura extends, saying that they have so far verified 3 Ryoka, two of which have taken a 4th Division constituent as hostage and are heading their way, though, due to the incompetence to sense their essence force, they are hesitant of their location. Renji recalls the time when he was struck up by Ichigo, as Matsumoto comments that they have to assemble more understanding and Iba adds that they haven’t perceived from Hanatarou either and since they believe he got trounce, will seek round impede 20, west quarter. Matsumoto inquires if it isn’t Kamaitachi Jiroubou and when Iba affirms it, Hisagi Shuuhei (9th) remarks that even Jiroubou, Jidanbou’s little male sibling, had gotten beat. Kira Izuru (3rd) inquires what the torment is going on and as remainder of the lieutenant’s converse, Hinamori gasps, rotating to state certain thing to Renji, but recognizing that he has went away and the doorway ajar.
Hanatarou notifies them that before being moved to the Shrine of Penitence, Rukia had been kept in the 6th Division retaining cell, to which he had been allotted to clean. He had been shocked at the start because she was nobility, but after being scolded for supplementing the “-sama” suffix to her title in her mild voice, he had developed to gaze ahead to his every day cleansing visits to her cell. A little at a time, Rukia would furthermore converse to him about all types of things, like when he had one time inquired about the nourishment and drink in the dwelling world, and she had notified him about juice extract loads that need a certain knack to consuming them. She had been baffled by it - and he would have been too – but he had considered her how to drink it. She had furthermore notified him about how a changed soul could be put into a stuffed animal, and Hanatarou had commented that the individual should have been crazy. Rukia had grinned as she acquiesced with him. Hanatarou adds that the most of the things she had distributed were about Ichigo, and shortly after, the prescribed alignment for her execution had come. Hanatarou inquired her if the one she provided her Shinigami forces to was the one she often talked of, and she had answered that it was – Kurosaki Ichigo, who she, whereas having expended only 2 months with him, trusted entirely. Yet, because of her, his destiny was rotated and he has been injuring awfully – anything she does do now, she could not ever completely atone.
Ganju comments that Rukia should be another odd Shinigami, and Ichigo, a gaze of gravity on his face, acquiesces with him and gets to his feet, saying that is the cause why they came to save her. He strolls off, holding up a very fast stride as her phrases to Hanatarou and the recollections of her run through his mind. Ganju and Hanatarou run after him, inquiring him to delay and slow down as he states to himself that all that’s occurrence is his own obvious error and not Rukia, running now through the tunnel. He affirms that he will not let her die.
A floor tile is abruptly hoisted in a foggy location and a head pops out – Hanatarou, who then shows to the other ones that the seaboard area is clear and to arrive up. He climbs out and states that this is the go out closest of the tower, Ganju commenting as he arrives out that it’s been a while since he’d respired new air. Hanatarou indicates the Shrine of Penitence and Ganju remarks that whereas they have arrived rather close, from here on will be the strong part. The fog begins to raise and Ichigo notifies them to rush as he begins off, halting suddenly when he notices somebody approaching down the stairs. This somebody has red hair, and Ichigo’s eyes broaden as the individual becomes completely evident – his adversary from that night. Renji impels up his visor and inquires if Ichigo recalls his face, Ichigo answering that he’d overlook if he could, but there being a hill of stuff to come back to him, he hasn’t – Abarai Renji. Renji descends the steps, saying that he didn’t anticipate Ichigo to recall his title, grinning. Ganju inquires who this friend, whose essence force is on a distinct scale that the other ones he has contacted so far, is, and a scared and alarmed Hanatarou gaspingly answers that it is Abarai Renji – lieutenant of the 6th Division. Renji, strolling in the direction of Ichigo, states that he had considered Ichigo dead after Byakuya’s strike, and Ichigo begins to stroll in the direction of him as well, disregarding Ganju’s pleads for him to stop. Renji adds that although Ichigo had endured, he is influenced, but, drawing his Zanpakutou, declares that this is the end, because, as he had said, he was going to murder the one who robbed Rukia’s powers. Ichigo places a hand on the hilt of Zangetsu as they boost their speeds. Renji states that as long as Ichigo is living, Rukia will not ever retrieve her forces, and Ichigo retorts that the cause why they have conveyed Rukia back was only to murder her, so Renji will just have to let him pass. His allegations at Renji with Zangetsu, Renji impeding with Zabimaru as he notifies Ichigo that to overtake, he will have to beat him.
Zaraki, Yachiru still on his back and running along the top covering, halts and states that Ichigo’s battle against Renji has started – having struck a 3rd-Seater (Ikkaku), Ichigo had better trounce a lieutenant, or he wouldn’t be a joy adversary for him. Yachiru inquires him how he understands that they’re battling regardless of not having the proficiency to sense others’ essence power, and Zaraki jokes, answering that it is because he is strong. Yachiru remarks that he is weird. Three Shinigami inquire each other if any have discovered anything, one commenting that it’s been a while since the intrusion and the number of hurt just holds going up, there being no sign that they’ll apprehend the cunning Ryoka shortly – even the head individuals and lieutenants are retaining normal seminars to get a contain of the situation. Suddenly, somebody at the end of the alley they are in yells that somebody has glimpsed Jiroubou lying close by, and they all run off, likely to Jiroubou.
Ishida and Orihime had been hearing close by, and burst their heads out when they depart and pacing out into the open. Ishida comments that Ichigo and the other ones should actually be going at it, because the surveillance has gotten tighter. Orihime states that they should be alright if who they rendezvous is the identical grade as the one they had contacted previous, but Ishida has certain thing additional on his brain – he senses Ichigo’s essence force along with Abarai Renji’s. Remembering the battle Ichigo and Renji had had that evening, he states that Ichigo has discovered himself a strong opponent. Ayame and Shun’ou cut off his thoughts and shock him by seeming in his face and looking at him inquisitively as they inquire if he is alright, if he has any agony or if he is running a fever. He answers that he is alright and not to concern, and Orihime states that she’s pleased – there are times when he wanders off into space and she gets worried. Ayame and Shun’ou then come back to her hairpins, and Orihime notifies Ishida that they should rush on, both beginning to run. Chad is furthermore running, up the steps and conceiving to himself that Ichigo’s essence power is expanding, but his opponent’s is exceedingly mighty, so he should hurry.
Ichigo and Renji traverse swords, then shatter away from each other and have a staring affray, which is broken by Ichigo who lunges at Renji and crashes Zangetsu down on miserably little Zabimaru. Ganju calls out that Renji is a lieutenant, so no issue how powerful Ichigo is, he wouldn’t be adept to win. Hanatarou’s issue of outlook disagrees, and as he states, Ichigo is absolutely swamping Renji and impelling him back with Zangetsu on his heels and all the way over the floor and into a wall. Hanatarou inquires what Ichigo is, and Ganju, eyes open broad, states that that is what he would like to understand as well. Renji values Zabimaru to impel Ichigo’s Zangetsu back a bit, inquiring him how he designs to save Rukia – even if he beatings him here, there are still 11 more lieutenants and 13 head individuals overhead them. Or does he design on beating all of them, too? Other than that, there is no other way he can save Rukia. Ichigo inquires Renji how numerous lieutenants and head individuals there are, asserting that no issue the number of either, he’ll just trounce them all if they get in his way. Renji inquires him what the cornerstone for his self-assurance is, and how he can be so full of himself – just because his Zanpakutou has altered, it doesn’t signify that he has gotten stronger.
Zabimaru begins to blaze and Renji is adept to impel Ichigo away as he issues Zabimaru, dispatching it expanding in Ichigo’s main heading and, whereas Ichigo values Zangetsu to impede it, impelling him all the way back into a partition and right through it, scarcely missing Hanatarou and Ganju as well. Renji retracts Zabimaru, saying that Ichigo referees his power founded on their one previous agree, but he is incorrect – when a Shinigami of lieutenant grade or higher goes into the dwelling world, their forces are decreased by 5 times in alignment not to origin pointless leverage there. In other phrases, his power is now 5 times it was then, and no issue how much more powerful Ichigo has gotten; he has wholeheartedly no possibility of beating him. Ichigo, to the shock of every individual present, choices up Zangetsu and appears from the aperture conceived when he had shattered through it, saying that if that last strike was Renji’s factual power, then beating 11 other friends like Renji won’t be a difficult for him, because the strike hadn’t injure in the least. Renji takes a step in the direction of him, calling him a foolish bastard.
A flock of birds go by plane past the window of the Shrine of Penitence, where Rukia is seated, abruptly unfastening her eyes as though feeling something.
