Where we left off . . . the Seireitei vanishes. It catches all captains, including Kyoraku and Mayuri’s subordinates, by surprise and strikes panic within Soul Society. Elsewhere, Bach reveals his brethren’s plans when they lost the war a thousand years ago; forcing them to conceal themselves within the shadows of the sereitei, thanks to their ability to use reishi. At the same time, various Quincy confront Shinigami and captains, informing them of their orders to exterminate all forces. The chapter ends with a rebuttal from the Shinigami, making it clear that they won’t be making it so easy for them to carry out their plans. Oh, and Mayuri comes out of the closet. — It’s not what you think!
First and foremost, what the hell Mayuri?! That outfit . . . Nemu looked really cute and sweet, but Mayuri looked like a ridiculous giant caterpillar. So why is he still such a bad ass? Whatever, it got a few chuckles out of me.
