I was trying to wait for the translated version of this chapter, but after reading all these good posts... curiosity got the best of me.
Love the facial expressions, and I'm surprised at how was captain and vice captain at this point of this little side story arc. I hope they do extend it out to eight chapters, to give us all a better understanding at Urahara's exile, and the origin of the vizards.
Lol, wonder if they'll ever reveal the secret to Urahara's crotch protection... Btw, is that Byakuya standing behind the old guy with a scarf as a vice? (there's a vice-captain badge thingy tied on his arm n all)
i wonder how long the flashback will last.. not like i mind since i think i probably enjoy it more than nw.. but then again... i was hoping to see the fights.. it would be awesome if everyone come out and fight..
1. wonder to what this kirio person was promoted.. perhaps the secret division..
and well there were 9 captains standing around + urahara + yama = 11. kenpachi isnt included seems to mean that "everyones here" doesnt mean kenpachi^^
so whats with the last squad? there are 13 aren't there?
i think isshin will be captain either of the 0th squad, the one that isnt in this chapter or he was kenpachis presuccesor.. at least he has this special kind of armor on his shoulder
Kirio Hikifune was promoted to the Royal Guard (Squad 0), which is comprised apparently of promoted captains.
Isshin could be one of those options or simply a member of Squad 0, since we know that it is a squad made up of captain-class shinigami, which Isshin stated he was.
The assumption is that the division missing its captain's representation (other than the 11th) is the 10th.

Was surprising that he was under Yoruichi, which only furthers Yoruichi, plus Urahara could also have a lot of those secret shunpo moves. Wonder what Aizen used to conceal himself, but was awesome to see Shinji just break it. Can't wait for the next chapter, really wanna know what this maggots nest is.
Finally, this might change people's minds for those who put Urahara above Yoruichi in terms of power, which is something I have seen a lot on these boards.
The maggots nest definitely sounds interesting. I have no good idea as to what it could be, but I bet it will probably be significant.

Shinji's appearance really is the only thing deducting from his coolness.

I'm more curious about Urahara's transformation of the 12th division. We know that it becomes a science and tech division, and before his captaincy, it clearly is not such a division. So, how does the division transform to being technologically oriented? Does Urahara make all of the current 12th division members transfer, does he bring in research-oriented shinigami while phasing the current 12th division out slowly, or do you think he tries to educate the current 12th division, transforming them into researchers?

I honestly hope the countdown won't count down to zero^^ I mean I'm really enjoying this "flashback" but 108 chapters are way to much...

I didn't really think about that much. For me it's somehow clear... it has to be Hueco Mundo. Well, but i don't think Kisuke and Hiyori will go there alone! I think something will happen there which transforms the Vizards in what they are now. At least one or two (Shinji and Hiyori?)
Of course Aizen must gain knowledge about the strenght of a Vaizard. This is when (hopefully) the "flashback" ends and Aizen makes his Plan!
But on the other hand, I've got no idea what could happen and what the Spirit-King has to do with it^^
And please, don't insult me if my english is THAT bad^^
