Ishida Ryuuken, Finally.  
SO I got around into reading Bleach, after I saw a spoiler of Uryu being slashed, and I figured that it wouldn't take long for Ryuuken to appear, and he did exactly what I thought he would, he appeared. But, he did something that was totally unexpected, he referred to the 'perpetrator' as 'our enemy', which surprised me since he was not the type to meddle into such affairs. At least that was my impression of him. I guess this could be attributed to the fact that it was his son almost dying there, despite him acting cold towards him about opening up his wounds. I thought it was just touching what he did, and he even called in Inoue and Kurosaki to go visit his son, whom I thought he couldn't care less about. I've always known that Ryuuken really cares for his son, but he never struck me as the type to show any acts of kindness as he stated, or to openly show it, as he partially did there<-- debatable.

Oh and yeah, he was wearing slippers. It shows more of his personality than people think of imo.

Just had to get it out there. I'm 100% pro-Quincy since I started bleach.

I think you have to wear slippers in hospitals in Japan...

Oh, I didn't know that. It's just that slippers and Ryuuken do not mix.

They are often made of rubber and most doctors in Japanese hospitals wear them.

You indeed do.

Ryuuken's such an awesome jerk. XD Kind enough to call his son's friends, but then the one time we finally see the man smile, it's while poking fun at Uryuu's injuries. Also I can't help remember the last thing Ryuuken said before he showed up recently. Isshin had called him a terrible father, and Ryuuken replied with "Better than you," and Isshin agreed. Considering what's going on in the story now, that's pretty interesting, IMO.

So glad to see him again!

As for the our enemy, I have not read the RAWs properly yet, but since the word caught my attention as well, I remember looking it up briefly and he does not say "our enemy" in Japanese. However, he uses we later on in the same sentence (I really don't remember well now, but something like "the enemy does this and that and so we must that and this"), so it might IMHO excuse the use of "our enemy".
I will yet check it.

Yeah that's a thing that catched my attention, "our enemy" since Ryuuken looks like the sort of person who doesn't let himself get involved in these sort of matters.

That would be superb. Either way, we've got more out of Ryuuken, than we had for a long time. A cause for celebration.

Personally, I adore the attention the footwear of Ryuuken and Ishida have been receiving lately. I'm starting to develop a fetish.

Regarding Ryuuken's personality; I don't know if it was just me but I felt he was a lot more.. "pleasant" than I imagined.

The way he treated Orihime wasn't cold or passive-aggressive at all (somehow I excepted him to, or maybe that's only the fan fictions talking?). There was even, dare I say, a certain gentleness in the way he talked to her.

I've always imagined him as this cold, slightly bitter, and asocial man, and it's really interesting to see that's not entirely true.

It's hard to imagine someone who became a hospital director without dealing with all the PR. But you are right. He did seem more pleasant, maybe because we have only seen him interacting with Uryu and Isshin.
