Has anybody's brains imploded with the latest?! My brain oozed out of my ears for days.
At the end of the Aizen arc (what else to call it?), we didn't see Isshin again. And even when this new arc started, he seemed to be sly and suspicious. What was he up to and with Urahara no less. I never imagined that he was the one coming to save Ichigo.
I had my suspicions about Ginjo. It seemed too convenient that he knew things and seemed to be in the right place at the right time. I think we'll find out in the next volume exactly why he's being so dastardly. It can't be for the lame reason he gave Ichigo at first.
