Last chapter we found out that Ichigo has passed Soul Society’s test, a test that never should have happened in the first place, but a test regardless. Seriously, Ichigo has never given them reason to doubt his loyalty to Soul Society, hell he has done more than enough for them than any Captain combined. I’m telling you that this wouldn’t happen if I was captain, but that shipped has sailed a long time ago. Anyways, Ginjo is on the ropes, will we see his head roll this chapter?
Yeah, Ginjo isn’t going to get up after this one. After being slashed by Ichigo, he attempts to put up a little bit of a fight, but ends up getting his sword cleaved. With that, Ginjo is out for the count, in fact he just might be a goner, though I seriously doubt Kubo would have Ichigo kill anyone, it’s just not his style. However, the bad guys can kill anyone they damn please. So Tsukishima springs up from the dead to try and take revenge, but Rukia jumps in front of his blade to take his blow.
We all knew it was coming, I mean there had to be a reason why Riruka placed herself inside Rukia’s body right? Of course that reason was to be a human shield for Ichigo! What Ichigo fangirl wouldn't throw herself in front of a blade to save his life? Before dying, she then tells the world that Ichigo in fact saved Ginjo’s life. Yup, saved his life by killing him. I hope Ichigo never saves me...
The one thing that is bugging me is that Ichigo should be fast enough to dodge Tsukishima’s blow. Hell, the man has a hole in his chest and everything! Though he probably knew Rirukia would appear, so he wanted to kill two birds with one Tsukishima.
THE VERDICT 3/5
This chapter was a little surprising, so I give it an extra point. Though I’m happy that its coming to an end. Hopefully Ginjo’s story will be entertaining, and perhaps give us an inside look into Soul Society at that time.
