Soul Society Arc

Soul Society Arc

This is currently a section in progress.

Ichigo, Sado, Ishida, Orihime, and Yoruichi all arrive in the outer reaches of Soul Society, Ryuutamashikai, where normal souls live, but are prevented from entering Sereitei, where Shinigami live. Standing guard over the gate is Jidanbou, who is promptly defeated by Ichigo. Jidanbou opens the gate, but is confronted by Ichimaru Gin, and has his left arm cruely chopped off, forcing him to drop the gate.

While in the house of a Ryuutamashikai elder, Shiba Ganju bursts in the door, picking a fight with Ichigo, as he is dressed as a Shinigami. Ganjyu flees after yelling about it being 9:00 and rides off on his boar, Bonnie. In the morning Ichigo and the rest go to find the house of Shiba Kuukaku, an acquaintance of Yoruichi. Kuukaku agrees to assist the group with their entrance to the home of the Shinigami, so long as her younger brother, who happens to be Ganju, travels with them. She reveals her method is to launch them through the sky like a firework. It is also revealed that the Shibas’ older brother was killed by a Shinigami, explaining why Ganju is reluctant to assist Ichigo.

Meanwhile, Abarai Renji escorts Kuchiki Rukia to the Tower of Repentance, where she will remain for the following days before her execution. Afterward, Renji runs into Aizen Sousuke, who speaks of a possible conspiracy revolving around the unnecessarily harsh punishment and quick capture of Rukia.

Ichigo and the rest continue to get ready to enter the home of Shinigami, though Ichigo has difficulty manipulating his reiatsu so that he can enter through a shield of reiatsu placed around the city. After forming a cannonball of reiatsu, the group is fired into the air, and shot toward the city. After impacting the shield, the cannonball splits, and the group is split apart. Ichigo lands with Ganju, Orihime with Ishida, and both Sado and Yoruichi land on their own.

Immediatly after landing, Ichigo and Ganju end up fighting two shinigami, Madarame Ikkaku and Ayasegawa Yumichika, both of whom are defeated after fighting.

A meeting is called for the Gotei 13, the Shinigami captains of Soul Society, where it seems that only a few of them get alone. At this time, an alarm sounds as intruders break into the home of the Shinigami.

Ichigo and Ganju fight their way through lower class Shinigami as Ishida defends Orihime, and Sado wanders alone. Ichigo and Ganju end up taking a young medical shinigami as a less-than-successful hostage, only to recieve help from him as a guide through the sewers of the city. It seems this young Shinigami, Hanatarou Yamada, also wishes for Rukia’s freedom.

After resurfacing, they are confronted by Abarai Renji, who Ichigo quickly engages in battle. After finding the weakness in Renji’s attacks, Ichigo takes the upper hand and slashes through Zabimaru, delivering a deep wound to Renij’s shoulder. In a flashback, it is explained how Renji and Rukia met in the outskirts of Soul Society, made their way to become Shinigami, and were separated by Rukia’s adoption into the noble Kuchiki family. Ichigo then flees back to the sewers before they are seen.

Renji is carried away for treatment and Kuchiki Byakuya orders his imprisonment for losing the fight. Ichimaru Gin leaves with Kira Izuru, and Hitsugaya Toushiro enters to speak with Hinamori Momo. He tells her to keep an eye on the third division, especially Ichimaru Gin. In her anxiety she goes to her Division captain, Aizen Sousuke, seeking comfort from the one she admired. She falls asleep in his room, only to wake up, walk outside, and find his corpse pinned up on the side of a building. Other vice-captains assemble at the scene, and upon Ichimaru Gin’s arrive, Hinamori remembers Hitsugaya’s words and attacks Gin intending to kill him in her despretation to avenge the captainthat she admired so much. Kira, being Gin’s vice-captain, steps in, only for their fight to be ceased by Hitsugaya, who makes a death threat to Gin.

Chad continues to make his way toward the Tower of Penitence as Ichigo, Ganjyu, and Hanatarou resurface from the sewers after some treating their injuries, and begin heading up the stairs Renji had come down. At the top of the stairs waits Zaraki Kenpachi, who overwhelms the group with his reiatsu. Ichigo attempts to fight Kenpachi, but is completely ineffective.

In a prison cell, Hinamori receives a letter which Aizen had written as she was sleeping in his office, which describes the events which had led to his murder. Hinamori reads it to herself, only to be shocked by what is written.

Chad is confronted by the the captain of the 8th Division, Kyouraku Shunsui. The two, though they appear to get along, have opposing goals, and thus begin to fight one another. Chad unleashes a mighty blow, but is struck down by the dual-sword wielding captain. Though he does not die, he is unconscious, and taken into Soul Society’s custody.

Ichigo continues to viciously fight Kenpachi, but his efforts are in vain until Zangetsu is broken in half by Kenpachi and Ichigo is stabbed through the chest. Zangetsu appears before Ichigo and takes Ichigo to a physical manifestation of his own mind, where he must fight with an oppisite version of himself, who, though not stated, represents the Hollow portion of Ichigo. By beating this his clone, Ichigo is able to regain Zangetsu. He returns to the real world, and with re-amped power, continues to fight Kenpachi on an equal level. They finish in one attack, after which, Ichigo collapses. Kenpachi announces Ichigo the winner and collapses soon after. Yoruichi shows up and takes Ichigo away using shunpo, othrwise known as flash step, a fast transportation used by shinigami.

Meanwhile, Ganju and Hanatarou arrive at the Tower of Penitence. Upon arriving inside, Ganjyu recognizes Rukia as the Shinigami who had killed is brother. At that moment, Kuchiki Byakuya arrives. Ganjyu tells Hanatarou to run, as he attempts to fight Byakuya.

Ichigo wakes up with Yoruichi sitting next to him. He sits up and a large wound in his abdominal reigon opens, showing the extent of his injuries. Yoruichi said he may have died if it had not been for a mask which had been in his clothing. Strangely, it is the same mask from his fight with Renji, and from when he had come out of the hole during his training with Urahara Kisuke. Yuroichi explains that he carried Ichigo after returning to his original form. Yoruichi then displays that he is actually a she. At that moment, Ichigo feels Kuchiki Byakuya’s reiatsu, and Ichigo runs out of the cavern Yoruichi had brought him to.

One the bridge to the Tower of Penitence, Ganjyu is just about torn apart by Byakuya’s split-second attack. Byakuya goes for the finish, but is halted by the 13th Division captain, Jyuushiro Ukitate. Ichigo shows up in the nick of time, only to begin arguing with Rukia as they always had done in the past. Ukitate seems to recognize Ichigo, but Byakuya says that he is of no relation to the person whom Ukitate has recalled. Byakuya attack Ichigo, only to be blocked and pushed back. Byakuya then decides to release his ShiKai, but it is thwarted by Yoruichi, who ties up his zanpakutou. Yoruichi then declares she will make Ichigo stronger than Byakuya in only three days after knocking out Ichigo, and then leaves the scene. Byakuya leaves, stating that he has lost interest, leaving Rukia, Ganjyu, and Hanatarou to Captain Ukitate. It is revealed by two of Ukitate’s division members that Ukitate also wishes to save Rukia by negotiating with the heads of Soul Society. Ukitate then states that he believes the Ryoka (intruders) to be innocent of killing Captain Aizen until they have been proven guilty, and he will not kill those who have tried to rescue his subordinate.

It now seems that Ishida and Inoue have stolen Shinigami clothing and blended into the chaos of Soul Society.

Yoruichi has taken the unconscious Ichigo back to the cave where he originally recovered after fighting Zaraki Kenpachi. Ichigo is furious at Yoruichi for not taking Rukia with then, but Yoruichi tells him that no one there could have defeated Byakuya, although she does see the possibility that Ichigo may be able to do so. Yoruichi takes Ichigo to a large cavern which Urahara Kisuke had at one point created in Soul Society, and modeled the one below his shop in the material world after. Yoruichi reveals that all zanpakutou have a two released states they can obtain; the first being ShiKai, which Ichigo had already obtained with the help of Urahara, and the second being BanKai, the final release. She tells him that every captain, aside from Kenpachi, has achieved BanKai, and that it is practically an unwritten requirement of being a captain. Having BanKai will increase one’s power ten fold, and normally requires fifteen years of training. Yoruichi tells him that using a special method, developed by Urahara, Ichigo will achieve BanKai in three days.

Ishida and Inoue are hiding out in a building as Tsubaki, one of Inoue’s fairy-like creatures, is healed after being harmed earlier in the arc. The continue to move toward the Tower, and are confronted by a drunk who is suspicious of them. They are saved by a group of 12th divison Shinigami, who then explode as Mayuri, standing behind them, pushes a button on a device he has in his hand. Luckily Ishida had expected it to be a trap and escaped with Inoue. Mayuri executes the surviving Shinigami from his division. He and Ishida then begin to fight, and in an under-handed move, has his lieutenant grab on to Ishida as he slices through her to get to him. Mayuri reveals that the ability of his ShiKai is to cut off signals from the brain to the limbs, thereby causing paralysis. Through conversation it is revealed that Mayuri had studied Quincys in the past, the last of which was Ishida’s grandfather. Enraged, Ishida stands up and begins fighting with Mayuri using a Quincy technique which allows one to control the body like a puppet with reiatsu. He removes a tab on his the wrist part of his ‘Quincy Glove’, and his reiatsu erupts. Ishida gains some bodily armor, and the matter which makes up the objects around him turns into reiatsu and gathers around him. Ishida proceeds to suppress Mayuri with incredibly speed until he released his BanKai, which Ishida also makes quick work of. Mayuri liquefies himself and retreats. Ishida’s powers wear off, and he is left a normal human. He walks away powerless and runs into Captain Kaname Tousen who immediately releases his ShiKai. He knocks Ishida unconscious and imprisons him.

Yoruichi introduces Ichigo to his BanKai training, which consists of fighting a materialized version of Old Man Zangetsu. The materialized Zangetsu summons forth thousands of swords which all resemble the sword form of Zangetsu. Ichigo must fight with the materialized Zangetsu while trying to find the only “true” Zangestu sword which is able to defeat the materialized Zangetsu. At that time, Ichigo will be able to use BanKai.

In the meantime, Ichimaru Gin frees Vice-Captain Kira Izuru from his cell. At the same time, Orihime is able to befriend and bring to her side Vice-Captain Kusajika Yachiru and her captain, the one and only Zaraki Kenpachi. Ishida awakes in a prison cell also holding Sado and a throughly bandaged Ganju.

We get to see a flashback of many of the current Vice-Captain level Shinigami during their days in Shinigami School. Hinamori Momo and Kira are shown as adept users of Kido, whereas Renji utterly fails. Renji surpasses them both in swordsmanship. Kira and Renji acquaint themselves with one another, and are rushed off to see Captain Aizen Sousuke and his then Vice-Captain Ichimaru Gin walking into the school. It also appears to be that Hinamori was taking up residence with Hitsugaya Toushiro who was only a child at the time. The Shinigami-in-training go to the Material World to train with dummy-Hollows, when something goes wrong and several of the guards are killed. A huge Hollow appears and then student Hisagi Shuuhei attempt to fight it off, but gains assistance from Hinamori, Renji, and Kira. The four escape only to be cut off by numerous huge Hollows. Aizen and Ichimaru mysteriously show up and save the students, at which time Himamori becomes infatuated with Aizen. Back in the story, Hinamori breaks free from her cell. The letter she has received from Aizen explains to her the events of his death, and she runs off to find the killer. It is also announced that Renji managed to escape from his cell as well. Hinamori surprises Toushiro, announcing him as the killer. She reads that his plot is not to execute Rukia, but to wait for Soukyoku, the haliberd-like zanpakutou with the strength of over one million zanpakutou, used for executions. Toushiro’s own thoughts reveal him as being innocent. Toushiro spots Ichimaru smirking at the two of them, and quickly subdues Hinamori as he prepares to attack Ichimaru.

Ichigo contines his training, and Yoruichi reveals that Urahara Kisuke was formerly the 12th Division Captain as well as the creator of the Technological Development Bureau, and Yoruichi was the former head of the S.M.C and former captain of the second division. Renji then appears and announces that the time of Rukia’s execution has been moved to the following day, shortening Ichigo’s time to train.

Rukia has a flashback of herself in her earlier years a Shinigami. At this time, she is training with her Vice-Captain, Shiba Kaien. A Hollow has come to Soul Society and Kaien’s wife is sent to defeat it. She is returned dead, and Kaien rushes off with Captain Ukitake and Rukia following behind. Kaien fights with the Hollow, but is is taken over by it as a result of a body-snatching ability. He then attacks Rukia, who impales his heart with her zanpakutou. Rukia is next seen returning Kaien’s body to his family, Kuukaku and Ganjyu.

Outside of the flashback, Ukitake then announces that Rukia’s execution date has been moved up to the following day. Kenpachi frees Sado, Ganjyu, and Ishida from captivity, and Captains Tousen and Komamura, and Vice-Captains Hisagi Shuuhei and Iba Tetsuzaemon stand in their path. Kenpachi decides to fight the two captains on his own. Tetsuzaemon fights Ikkaku, and Shuuhei fights Yumichika.

Renji decides to free Rukia, and takes the initiative to fight Byakuya. He reveals that he has achieve BanKai, but is soon defeated by the far more experienced Byakuya. At this time, Ichimaru Gin confronts Rukia as she is lead away from the Tower of Penitence, and with his wicked words, destroys her convictions of facing death. Kenpachi defeats Kaname, and Byakuya arrives at the execution grounds.

The Soukyo is released into its real form, which is a giant phoenix. Right as it’s about to kill Rukia, Ichigo shows up in a cloak given to him by Yoruichi, which lets him fly. Then two captains show up and destroy the Soukyo and flee, followed by “Old Man Yama”. Ichigo gets Rukia down the hill, only to be followed by three lieutenants.

Without his zanpakutou, Ichigo shatters one of the lieutenants zanpakutou while its in its released form. He knocks the other two out and quickly begins a fight with Byakuya. Renji picks up Rukia and runs. Ichigo reveals to Byakuya the Getsuya ability while his zanpakutou is in its ShiKai form. Soon after he reveals his bankai, a normal sized sword that is completely black.

Ichigo appears to be winning, but soon enough Byakuya reveals the real form of his BanKai, many swords, and slowing Ichigo down. When Ichigo nears death, his hollow form takes over. A black getsuya tenshou comes from the sword, and Ichigo starts to win the fight. In the end, Ichigo puts all of his spirit energy in one blow, and Byakuya uses his final technique. Ichigo shatters Byakuya’s sword, and Byakuya falls, defeated.
