From the last volume, Kishimoto transitions swiftly on from the last fight. The fight leaves off on a perfect part and has a powerful ending to display the relationship between the two fighters. The next part of the volume completely shows Ichigo’s training. Kishimoto has been hyping up the abilities of Ichigo with all of the subliminal hints throughout the past volumes. The author also shows nearly all of Byakuya’s character in one fight. The dialogue during the fight is not wasted. 5/5 - GOATreviews One of the best fights of the entire series.
