The kamari game officially starts; the referees are the proprietors from the Urahara Shop, Jinta Hanakari and Ururu Tsumugiya. Kisuke Urahara himself oversees the proceedings, and set up a gigantic barrier around the play field to indicate the assigned area. The two teams, each with varying characters attempt to keep the ball away from each other in different, comical ways. Ikkaku Madarame joins in the game, while sparring with Ichigo under the impression that he was undergoing intensive training. Then a hollow appears on the field, drawn by everyone's spiritual pressure. With the help of Ichigo, Chad and Uryū, the hollow is quickly dispatched; the game ends because Lurichiyo's team dropped the ball. Before she can lament about going back to her world, Shū Kannogi enters the human world and shows Lurichiyo that her idea about a kemari tournament in the Soul Society was not such a bad idea in the eyes of the commoners after all. Satisfied at this, Lurichiyo returns to the Soul Society.
