The chapter thread is alive with the sound of spoilers at Bleach Asylum
Is Yamajii dead? There's a question as to whether the first translation is right about that here. I know a lot of people were saying that Aizen wouldn't do anything so stupid as leave the hougyoku in HM but I was really hoping for Orihime to have a mini-adventure looking for it and maybe MAYBE having a shining moment getting to fulfill her vow of denying it even though it always looked like Aizen set her up to be a fool over that. *sigh*
Ichigo, what's going to save you now? Are you going to be the third kidnap victim and will Aizen whisk you away to the Royal Realm for the Ichigo in distress arc?
