OMG...I just read about 20 chapters of Bleach and got officially caught up. Must squee!

Where do I even begin? I am bullet-pointing this one so as to properly organize my flailing:

- ICHIGO you are back and I am so happy. Powers always look good on you. :)

- ISHIDA you are made of awesome. So glad that Orihime healed you and you joined the fight, and now it's you and Ichigo fighting back to back against Ganjou! And you guys are having a snappy conversation to boot! XD

- BONUS APPEARANCE from Ichigo's dad and Uruhara! But as always they are thick as thieves and super sneaky.

- ORIHIME you got Ishida back in action and for that you get an A+ in my book.

- IKKAKU I have missed you so. The only thing that would have made the scene complete would have been if Yumichika showed up.

- OH SNAP the soul society badge is surveilance. Or at least that's what the bad guys are saying. Say it ain't so, UKITAKE! (But seriously, Uryuu's already got spy bacteria so don't you think it's pretty much a given they'd be tracking Ichigo's every move?)

- NEW CHARACTERS there are a lot of you. I am not really attached to any of you but it was fun to see the fight pairings. RUKIA I cannot believe that Riruka hurt you. D:

- BLINDED ICHIGO made me wince. Ow.

- LOTS OF PAGES where I don't know what's going on. Seriously, those pages where it's like a lightning bolt and lots of scribbles and some sound effects characters? The only good thing about them is I can skip them and get on to the next page.

- BYAKUYA I won't lie I skipped over your description of your powers. No offense, but I knew you'd made it out okay. You are looking good, though.

- SHUNSUI where were you? Miss you!

- RYUUKEN is still not very interested in the affairs of mice and men or Shinigami or other things. But he did save Ishida so bonus points for him.

- BLEACH I didn't realize how much I missed you and I am so glad to be back in your shonen embrace. *passes out dramatically with backlighting from manga exhaustion*

I am so glad to be caught up as well! I have been thinking Bleach thoughts all day. XD

This arc has kind of been a slow burn but it's definitely picking up now! It was really interesting to read it all in one sitting; the only problem is now I need more and quick. I'm really liking Ichigo a LOT in this arc as well, maybe even more so that I did in the last one.

Eeee this post makes me happy :D I have not been reading the manga in SUCH a long time so it's good to vaguely hear about what's going on (mainly, I liked the part where there was ISHIDA in capslock and stuff about him fighting with Ichigo xD)

I know; I let the manga go for about 4/5 months, and I was a bit shocked how behind I was! I didn't do a great job at describing what's going on simply because I was in squee mode.

The important things to know are that:

-Over a year after Aizen's defeat, a powerless Ichigo started tapping into his old powers through a 'Fullbring,' (Fullbringers are a group of humans who have supernatural abilities connected to objects.) They end up betraying him, and the Fullbringers are actually able to 'steal' Ichigo's powers from him. Uruhara and Ichigo's dad intervene and basically a bunch of captains from SS give a bit of their reiatsu to 'restart' Ichigo's. (I may not be getting this quite perfectly, but that's how it seemed to me!) So Rukia stabs him with a zanpaktou, and he's back to being a substitute Shinigami.

-In the meantime, Uryuu is recuperating from his injury (done by a Fullbringer, which Ichigo didn't know) and then Orihime comes and heals him to get him back into fighting mode. Just as things are looking bad for Ichigo during the Fullbringer fight, Uryuu shows up and gets badass with his Quincy self. SS arrives and the captains are all paired off with Fullbringers to fight, and Uryuu and Ichigo get paired together to fight the head of the Fullbringers, Ganjou.

-It is very obvious that Ichigo is pissed about the fact the Fullbringer leader nearly killed Uryuu. It's also obvious that Uryuu is fighting at somewhat limited health (not enough time to properly heal him) but he doesn't care because he has to help Ichigo. ♥♥♥
