Syn said that the action reminds her of the end of the SS arc and End of Hypnosis here and while I'm excited about the wrapping up of the story, I really am disappointed about the possibility of cutting away yet AGAIN from a Shunsui and Ukitake battle and being left high and dry. At least this time we got to see more of their abilities... but ... but....
I wanted BAN KAIS AND SEXY GROWN UP GUYS WITH CHEEKBONES FIGHT!
And with the appearance of WW and his pet it looks like we may be cutting away from this fight.
Annie wasn't sure how to translate the bit with Shunsui's bankai--Ukitake said something about how it wasn't supposed to be shown in front of PEOPLE. Displayed, shown off--I think the connotations are all the same. There's something mysterious about Shunsui's ban kai and Kubo-sensei is just being sadistic as always about withholding it. -_-.
