Sorry for spam posting, I think though that it will be interesting to see Ichigo pull out all the stops in the upcomming battle with the Arrancar. But even more interesting will be what happens between the Shinigami and the Vaizard during and after the battle. Personally I think we will see a tacit alliance, and maybe possibly the Shinigami recognizing the Vaizard, and possibly accepting them, due to Ichigo's interim Shinigami status. Ichigo will be more than just another kick ass person, he's going to HAVE to become the mediator between Viazard and Shinigami, he is accepted by both groups.
Now, even more interesting to see will be how the interaction between the Quincy duo and their "allies" in the Soul Society.
