Looks like someone is not happy.
After talking to Ichigo, Byakuya actually dies for real(?). Meanwhile, Ichigo attacks Bach, but Bach easily pins Ichigo to the ground and stabs him in the neck. Bach plans to bring Ichigo back to his HQ, but he then realizes Ichigo has protected himself with Blut Vene and is about to open a can of whoop ass.
So apparently Ichigo has Quincy powers now. Whoop-dee-doo. On the other hand, I guess that's better than having Ichigo show up with instant teleport to save the day and then get defeated in 5 pages. Ichigo getting beat at this point, of course, would have been utterly stupid. I'm going to refrain commmenting too much on this Ichigo with Quincy power situation and see where Bleach is going with this.
In other news, it looks like Byakuya is really going to die. His zanpukto has shattered. Oh well.
