Shinji shows off his zanpukto, while Tousen...Turn it up, turn it up, turn it upside down!!Summary:In the air about fake Karakura Town, Shinji swings his shikai zanpukto around. Aizen tries to guess Shinji's powers, but he guesses too late as Shinji's power propagate through scent and all of Aizen's sense are turned upside down, left-side right. Shinji cuts Aizen on the first exchange, but on the second exchange Aizen figures things out and cuts Shinji instead. Aizen then gloats that Shinji's powers are nothing compared to his.Back down on the roof of a building, Komamura and Hisagi are watching over the injured Tousen who has reverted back to human form. The three former friends reconcile, but suddenly Tousen is killed by Aizen. Even more suddenly, Ichigo launches out of a Garganta and charges from behind Aizen.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Lol I thought there was no new WSJ this week since last week was a double issue, but apparently I'm wrong. Anyways, Tousen dies, and there's no one he can blame but himself for being weak sauce. A longer fight could have been interesting, but his death in this chapter was appropriate, down to the part where Aizen personally dispatched him for being weak. The reconciliation scene with Komamura and Hisagi was alright since Aizen killed Tousen at the end. It'd be dumb if Tousen survived and rejoined the shinigamis.Moving on, we finally saw Shinji's shikai, and it seems that the "reverse petting" name was spot on. Reversing your opponent's senses is a pretty annoying power and would be quite effective against most people, but Aizen is too bad-ass to fall for that. Actually, the power would be less and less effective as the fight goes on as the opponent will adapt better the reversed senses. I wouldn't be surprised if Shinji was under Aizen's spell all along too lol. Since Ichigo has already been branded as the only one who can beat Aizen, we shouldn't expect Shinji to do much.Lastly, Ichigo has finally arrived with his outfit back at 100% to face Aizen. Will this be the final showdown of the series? I doubt it since Aizen isn't close to his goal yet, so Ichigo is probably going to get stomped. If Ichigo does beat Aizen, then Bleach might as well be over.
