^I think if they do survive it'll be the same as the Vaizard. They're in town but we have yet to hear from or about them. You'd think that since they considered Ichigo their ally because of the hollow side of them that they'd come to help ichigo. However they didn't and maybe its because somehow they knew the the captains were coming to help ichigo. Ichigo seems to have enough allies to go into another dimension and rule there. lol not that that will happen but the real world has its own defense force which pretty much eliminates all reasons why ss should become involved there. or at least in kt. Im anxiously awaiting this new chapter and hopefully it lives up to being the climax. I really hope we get long awaited answers about ichigo's family and such.
I guess next chapter we will have tsukishima's flashback with ginjo,and perhaps something about ginjo when he was a shinigami.
