Renji: Sorry for coming in late!
Byakuya: What's wrong?
Renji: Well, I went to get my hair cut, but the salon was rather crowded, so...
Renji: Your hair is always cut perfectly. Do you do that, after all? Do you belong to some exclusive place...?
Byakuya: No. I use Senbonzakura to cut my hair.
(Renji freaks out.)
Byakuya: Hmph. It was a joke.
(Renji freaks out again.)
Renji: Hey, you just made a joke?!
(Tatsuki barely survived the Soul Sucking technique)
Yammy: For my Gonzui to fail at tearing out your soul, you must have a bit of soul power hiding in you somewhere! Right?! Ulquiorra, is this the one?!
Ulquiorra: Take a better look, you idiot. Her soul is about to break simply by you being close to her. She's merely trash.
(A man collapses right in front of Orihime and Chad)
Orihime: Wait, Chad!
Chad: It's no use, Inoue. They're already dead.
Ichigo: (Thinking) That mask that would come back even if I threw it out. And now it's suddenly dissapeared. That's when it started. Ever since then I've been able to hear it. I can hear his voice inside of me calling out. Hirako didn't even need to mention it. At this rate...
Inner Hollow: (Interrupts) "At this rate" what? Don't you think that you're a bit scared, Ichigo? You're so easy to figure out! How interesting. I'm going to scare you even more!
(Ichigo enters his bedroom)
Kon: Well, if it isn't Ichigo! You're back pretty early! I wasn't waiting for you or anything, but welcome home. (Ichigo remains silent) What's this?! What's this?! What's this?! Here I am greeting you and all you can do is look gloomy like some voodoo doll!

Byakuya: What's wrong?
Renji: Well, I went to get my hair cut, but the salon was rather crowded, so... Your hair is always cut perfectly. Do you do that, after all? Do you belong to some exclusive place...?
Byakuya: No, I use senbonzakura to cut my hair. (Renji's shocked) It was a joke.
Renji: Oh. (Greater shock) Hey, you just made a joke!!!
Karin: (Concerned) I want you to tell me what you're so worred about, Ichi-nii.
Ichigo: What are you talking about? I'm not worried about anything.
Karin: I know. I know about it. Ichi-nii. I know that you're a Shinigami!
Japanese Title: 世界崩壊への序曲、アランカル襲来！
Romaji Title: Sekai houkai e no jokyoku, arankaru shuurai!
Yammy asks Ulquiorra who the target is about three times so it is possible that he is also not very good at detecting someone's spirit energy.
Unlike previous episodes when Tsubaki was beaten, this time he is killed hitting Yammy's palm.
Ulquiorra says something about Orihime's powers aren't healing type, but sort of time manipulation.
This episode marks the first appearance of Ulquiorra and Yammy.
Yammy and Ulquiorra's arrival mirrors the arrival of Nappa and Vegeta from Dragon Ball Z. Two enemies arrive from the sky, causing a huge crater. One is a giant, while the other is smaller, but more powerful. And the first action they take is the bigger one kills a large group of people with a single move.
