Ichigo starts training in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber Precipice World, plus some happenings in Karakura Town.
It pays to watch where you are going.
Isshin sets up the Precipice World for Ichigo to train. Ichigo has 2000 hours (1hr in real world time) to call out Zangetsu once again and obtain the final Getsuga Tenshou.
In Karakura Town, Keigo bumps into Tatsuki and they appear to be the only two people who are still awake. While carrying their unconscious classmates Michiru and Chizuru, Tatsuki tells Keigo that she had surveyed the edge of town and discovered that the town has been transported to another location. Tatsuki guesses the strange events probably has something to do with Ichigo, and she's confident that Ichigo will do something about it. Meanwhile, Aizen and Gin have arrived in town.
Back in the Precipice World, Isshin notices a cut appears on the meditating Ichigo's shoulder, and this means Ichigo may be in a deep struggle against Zangetsu.
Not much happening in this chapter, but I suppose that was to be expected when Bleach whipped out the Hyperbolic Time Chamber last week. Half of this chapter was spent on Isshin setting up the place for Ichigo. With the way things are going now, we could see Ichigo fighting Zangetsu or his inner hollow for the next few chapters. There was a bit of development in Karakura Town with Keigo running into Tatsuki, but I fail to see how the residents of Karakura Town can mount any sort of effective resistance against Aizen. That is unless Tatsuki and Keigo suddenly develop superpowers, but even then they would be no match for Aizen. It seems that Karakura Town is within the Soul Society nowadays (although I'm confused as to whether that's true or not), so perhaps resistance will come from the shinigamis who stayed behind. Anyways, hopefully the next chapter won't be so slow.
