While Ichigo is sparring with Renji, a man from squad 11 named Seizo gives the two tea, but everyone seems to disrespect him. It is later revealed that Seizo was once a strong warrior, but because he lost almost all of his spiritual energy to a hollow he became weak and no one after that respected him. After regaining his confidence in his skills he defeats a group of hollows alongside Ikkaku. The episode ends with Seizo leaving the Thirteen Court Guard Squads with all of Squad 11 including Ikkaku bowing down to him in respect.
