Rukia is found by the 4th Division and sent to recover from her injuries. Hisagi and his men patrol Seireitei and are attacked by the sadistic Kazeshini. Renji searches the ruins for any clues of the missing Byakuya, who was last seen hit by Senbonzakura's attack. He instead encounters Zabimaru in the form of a baboon-woman," ""Chimpette""", and a snake-boy," ""Snakey"". Both entities of Zabimaru have no intention of returning to their original owner and attack Renji. According to Zabimaru", the reason it attacks is that as a sword it is its nature to attack. Ichigo wakes up in Zangetsu's dimension, but the old man is missing. He sees Muramasa and attacks him, but the man immediately incapacitates him and summons his inner hollow. Muramasa has begun to take an interest in the hollow and uses his powers to freeze it in place. Thinking that it has been subdued, Muramasa approaches it but the hollow merely tricks him with its act and lashes out straight at him.
