Rangiku confronts Gin.
Gin: Jeez woman, just come out with it and tell me that you love me.
Rangiku arrives and persuades Don Kanoji to carry Tatsuki away. Aizen wonder what Rangiku hopes to accomplish by showing up in this state, that Rangiku doesn't answer. Instead Gin tells Aizen that he'll take care of it and suddenly whisks Rangiku away to the top of a nearby building. On top of the building, Gin asks Rangiku why did she show up. Rangiku questions back, asking why Gin decided to follow Aizen and betray Kira's trust, but Gin knows that Rangiku is just bringing up Kira to cover up her own emotions. Gin approaches Rangiku, but he suddenly pulls out his zanpukto and tells Rangiku that she is too much of a bother.
Not too far away in the streets, Tatsuki has recovered and walks with Don Kanoji. The pair bumps into Keigo who has retrieved a sword from somewhere. Keigo warns Tatsuki and Don Kanoji to keep going as Aizen's spiritual pressure is approaching them.
Back on top of the building, Rangiku is lying on the ground with a wound to her chest, and Gin quickly makes his exit.
So much for the confrontation between Rangiku and Gin. They didn't really get very far with the conversation. We all know Rangiku has a relationship of sorts with Gin, but it'd be nice if she gave a verbal confirmation. I suppose Kubo is saving that for later. It seems that Gin has gotten rid of Rangiku for good, but he probably just gave her a non-fatal wound so Aizen would leave her alone. Aizen probably knows, but he probably doesn't give a damn either.
While the conversation between Gin and Rangiku was serious, the rest of chapter had lots of comedy, but then again what else is Don Kanoji good for? It's interesting that Keigo got a sword from somewhere. I don't think he'll suddenly turn into a shinigami, but it'll be interesting to see what he can do these days.
