The peace is suddenly broken when warning sirens blare through the Soul Society. Residents there are disappearing without a trace and nobody knows who’s behind it, meanwhile, a dark shadow is also extending itself toward Ichigo and his friends in Karakura Town…
Last week brought Zaraki into the spotlight, and he showed off Nozarashi against the seemingly overpowered Sternritter Gremmy. This week Ichigo finally made his comeback! The anime topped the weekly anime rankings for the last 2 weeks, and don’t forget to vote for the best anime of the week!
