1) And thus the arc comes to close. The next question is, what’s next?
2) I wish Kubo-sensei would focus more on the setting and issues of Soul Society. I mean, that is where the majority of the cast lies. Particularly Shiro-chan. I demand more Shiro-chan (・｀ω´・)!
3) It would be nice to see Ichigo being requested by the head to go to Soul Society and deal with the badass antagonists (given that they aren’t hellbent on becoming/being an ultimate pawning god like Aizen). Or even better, get the King involved somehow.
4) I wouldn’t mind seeing this duo again.
5) I still haven’t bothered myself with the anime. Despite it being up to date, there’s still filler episodes.
