Jin Kariya and his group of Bounts pick up where they left off as they successfully open the Seireitei gate. Just as they enter, Jin Kariya tells the group of ruffians he doesn't need them anymore, and quickly disposes of them as they try to attack him. Ichigo and the others eventually reach Seireitei with an injured Jidanbo's help. Soifon and the Executive Militia separate to try and find the Bounts. Mabashi and his doll, Ritz, quickly dispose of most of them and control some of them. Sensing that Mabashi has done a good job, Sawatari walks away as Mayuri Kurotsuchi un-camouflages himself from the wall. The Executive Militia reports to Soifon. One of the members is infested with Ritz and attacks Soifon with a single bitto.
