“This is UNBELIEVABLE!” Kurosaki and his pals find themselves in the principal’s office, getting lectured by their gym coach Kagine about the rucass Ichigo caused last night,
Ichigo and Rukia arrive at the locationRukia’s order designated. They find a scared, helpless
At school the next day, the class scores for the semester are posted (Orohime is 3rd, who would have guessed she has boobs and brains). Keigo and Mizuro step up the chart. “Well girls aside, at least none of our comrades betrayed us by entering the top 50.” Mizuro points out Ichigo’s name as 23rd**. Keigo freakin’ flips. Ichigo explains he goes home and studies right after school. Keigo doesn’t take it well at all. Resorting to Chad to hang out with, Chad points himself out as number 11. Keigo and Mizuro freak, call them devils and storm off. “If we’re devils, what does that make the top ranked person?” Ichigo reads the name: Ishida Uryuu.
Rukia gets fed up with Urahara. He sells her bad products, he pops his head in when he’s unwanted and never picks up his phone. On top of that, Rukia worries her command receiver (cell phone) is malfunctioning. An order will come in, but no hollow. Speak of the devil… and order comes in. Rukia grabs Ichigo in the hallway. As they dash out of the school, Ichigo brushes shoulders with a malevolent looking classmate. At the scene of the order, there is once again, no hollow. In the midst of their quarreling, the classmate from earlier steps forward (wearing a gimmicky white coat). “Good evening Kurosaki-kun, Kuchiki-san.” Before Ichigo can ask his name, the classmate reveals that he knows about Ichigo’s ability to interact with ghosts. The student senses a hollow’s presence, seconds before the command receiver does. The student even points the direction out. He’s rather ashamed Ichigo couldn’t tell.
The next day at school, Ichigo broods over last night’s encounter. He tries to remember the guy’s name. Unfortunately, he has a difficult time remembering faces and names (as pointed out earlier by Tatsuki). Orohime pops up, and asks if he’s talking about Ishida Uryuu.
Rukia pays Urahara a little visit. There’s something she needs to ask him, about Quincys. Urahara admits he hasn’t heard that name for over 200 years. The Quincys were an anti-demon clan that specialized in anti-hollow combat which were scattered across the globe. The clan was destroyed 200 years ago. There was a defining difference between them and soul reapers, however. As opposed to purifying a hollow and sending it to Soul Society, the Quincys adhered
* This order comes the next day, after a humorous visit from Don Kon’anji, left out in the anime.
** 18th in the manga.
