At the principal's office in Karakura HighSchool, a furious Kagine addresses Ichigo Kurosaki and his friends by inquiring as towhether they know what they have done before turning on a screen behind him, which displaysthe ruckus Ichigo and Rukia Kuchiki caused at Don Kanonji's show the previous night,as he reveals that this incident was broadcast nationwide and demands to know if Ichigo isaware of how much damage he has done to the school.

However, Tatsuki Arisawa gets Kagine's attentionand notes that she understands why Ichigo and Rukia were called in due to their actionson television before asserting that there is no reason for her and Orihime Inoue tobe here too. When a startled Kagine points out that theywere both present during the incident, Tatsuki claims that they were there purely by coincidenceand had nothing to do with the situation, leading an irritated Ichigo to note that Tatsukiis simply trying to save herself and Orihime from punishment as Tatsuki sticks her tongueout at him. Tatsuki asserts that they are leaving andexits the room as Orihime bows and follows her, but when Keigo Asano attempts to leaveas well, Kagine pulls him back by the back.

Of the collar of his shirt and declares thathe is equally guilty for not doing anything to stop Ichigo despite being present duringthe incident. When a bewildered Keigo wonders what the problemis with them having been on television, Kagine angrily lifts him up and asserts that he ishere precisely because of this lack of awareness before declaring that he is flabbergastedby Keigo's ignorance. Suddenly, Rukia tears up and apologizes forbeing unable to stop Ichigo and his desire to be on television. As Rukia tries to wipe away her tears andasserts that it is all her fault, a stunned Kagine drops Keigo and assures Rukia thathe understands it is not her fault.

While Ichigo, Keigo, Mizuiro Kojima, and YasutoraSado make their way to the window, Rukia claims to not care what Kagine does to Ichigo solong as he spares her, only for Kagine to notice too late that Ichigo and his friendshave escaped, leading to him yelling after them as they run away from the building. Promising that things will only get worsefor the boys if they run away, Kagine turns around to discover that Rukia has also vanishedand beseeches the principal to take action on them. The principal merely assures Kagine that hedoes not need to scold the students so severely just because they were on television, andas Misato Ochi stands next to him and grins,.

Kagine tearfully proclaims that he cannotbelieve the faculty would act like this. Shortly afterward, Ichigo and his friendswalk through the campus as Keigo states that all is well which ends well before praisingRukia as the reason they got away. When Ichigo tells Keigo to not complimentRukia because she tried to sell him out, Tatsuki points out how her act also allowed Ichigoto escape, prompting Rukia to slyly affirm that it was merely an act and that she wouldnever dream of selling out Ichigo. When Rukia's Denreishinki starts beeping,she and Ichigo immediately grow serious as Rukia asks to speak with him before excusingthem from the group and running off with Ichigo, leaving their friends to stand in surprisedsilence as Keigo wonders what that was about.

Orihime wonders if Ichigo and Rukia are seeingeach other, but Keigo assures her that Rukia would never fall for Ichigo like that as theybegin walking away. However, while Keigo and Mizuiro disagreeon how suspicious this behavior is, Sado stops in his tracks and looks up at the third storyof the building next to them, where Uryū Ishida silently stares down at the group beforewalking away, to Sado's concern. Soon afterward, upon arriving in an alleywaywith a cowering fat Plus alongside Ichigo in his Shinigami form, Rukia checks her Denreishinkiwhile Ichigo observes that there is no Hollow present and wonders what is going on. When Ichigo suggests that her Denreishinkimay be broken, Rukia notes the strangeness.

Of the absence of a Hollow despite them receivinga purification order for one. Addressing the fat Plus, Ichigo asks him ifhe happened to exterminate a Hollow, which the Plus assumes is the bug-like creaturehe saw earlier, prompting him to tearfully admit he was so scared that he thought hewas going to soil himself as he lunges forward. Stopping the Plus by planting a foot on hisface, an irritated Ichigo tells him to stay away and reiterates that he is asking himwhat happened, but Rukia tells him to wait and grabs the Plus by the collar before inquiringif someone saved him from the Hollow and what that person looked like. However, the Plus reveals that he had hiseyes closed the whole time because he was.

Scared and tries to lunge at Rukia too, onlyfor an irritated Rukia to plant her foot in his face as well. As he notes that it is time to perform Konsō,Ichigo leans down to the Plus, who frantically wonders what Konsō is and why Ichigo is holdinga big sword, before sending him to Soul Society. While a blue glow fills the alleyway, Uryūwatches this event from a rooftop above them and sees a Jigokuchō flutter away. The next day, at Karakura High School, thestudents gather around a list of the highest test scores for the final exam of their firstsemester, where Tatsuki sees that Orihime has placed third and rubs her head while praisinghow consistently she does well on tests.

When Michiru expresses surprise at Orihimebeing so smart, Tatsuki admits that she does not look the part as Chizuru Honshō cuddlesOrihime and heaps praise on her as well. Looking closely at the list of scores, Keigoclaims no one aside from the girls betrayed him and Mizuiro by getting into the top 50. However, Mizuiro directs Keigo's attentionto Ichigo's name, which is in 23rd place, prompting a shocked Keigo to demand to knowhow Ichigo scored so high. When Ichigo bluntly states that he just studiesat home because there is nothing else to do, Keigo reminds him that he always invites Ichigoto come hang out with him and realizes that this is what Ichigo was doing when he turnedhim down.

Tearfully and dramatically declaring Ichigoto be a pervert and a nerd, Keigo dons a pair of thick glasses and tells Ichigo that hecan have them, only for Ichigo to casually smash them on Keigo's face while refusinghis offer as Mizuiro expresses surprise at Ichigo actually studying. Ichigo explains that school can be tough whenone has orange hair like he does, leading Keigo to solemnly note that life really isfull of different perspectives before donning a headband and telling Ichigo that he deservesit, only for Ichigo to cut it off his forehead with a pair of scissors while refusing oncemore. Declaring that he will never hang out withIchigo again, Keigo tells Sado that he can.

Still join them since he is not in the top50, only for Sado to silently direct their attention near the top of the list, wherehis name is in 11th place. Completely shocked by this revelation, Keigoand Mizuiro run several feet down the hall, where Mizuiro curls up in the fetal position. After asserting he never thought Ichigo andSado were so evil, Keigo proclaims he will never play with them again as he and Mizuirorun to the end of the hall, prompting Tatsuki to note Ichigo made him cry again. Ichigo wonders how “evil” the student whoranked first must be by comparison and looks at the list, where he reads the top name asAmetatsu Ishida and expresses confusion at.

Having never heard this name before. When Orihime corrects him by clarifying thename is actually Uryū Ishida, Ichigo asks her if she knows him, leading her to revealhe is in their class and embarrassing Ichigo as Tatsuki notes he is terrible with namesand faces before pulling Orihime away. As he continues to look at the list, Ichigowonders if there really is such a student in his class. Elsewhere in the school, Rukia stares at herDenreishinki while it calls the Urahara Shop before angrily realizing that he is not there. Placing the Denreishinki against a wall, Rukiaberates Urahara for not answering when she.

Calls him and always showing up when she doesnot need him as she contests his claim of being a businessman. After staring at the Denreishinki in silencefor a few seconds, Rukia sighs and notes that she wanted him to take a look at it becauseshe cannot tell if it is broken or not as she crouches down and taps the Denreishinki. Suddenly, the Denreishinki starts beepingagain, prompting a shocked Rukia to pick it up and run off while mentally stating thatshe found him. Back at the exam listing, Keigo proposes thathe and Ichigo go to a karaoke bar because it has an attractive hostess, only for Rukiato run up and pull Ichigo away by the hand.

While telling him to come with her for a minute,leaving a stunned Keigo to note that she is quite aggressive as Mizuiro admits that hethinks they really are seeing each other. Letting go of Ichigo's hand, Rukia informshim that she has received a Hollow purification order, prompting Ichigo to state that he hopesthere really is one this time while continuing to run alongside her. As he and Rukia continue to run down the hall,Ichigo accidentally bumps into Uryū on the way and apologizes to him before continuingto run off as Uryū brushes his shoulder and walks away. That night, Ichigo stands in the street inhis Shinigami form and notes with irritation.

That there was still no Hollow even afterall that effort. Dragging Ichigo's body over to him, Rukiatells him to shut up and get back in his body before inspecting her Denreishinki once moreas Ichigo tells her to do something about her useless cell phone. While Ichigo lifts up his body and returnsto it, Rukia demands to know if he is saying that this is her fault and reminds him thatshe merely relays the orders. Standing up, Ichigo merely tells Rukia tohurry up and fix it, which she asserts is what she wants to do as well. Suddenly, Uryū asks them if they are breakingup, prompting Ichigo and Rukia to turn to.

Face him in surprise, as he walks into viewwhile wearing a white uniform. As Uryū greets them both by name, Ichigodemands to know who he is and how he knows their names, only for Uryū to reveal thathe knows Ichigo can see Souls, to the shock of both him and Rukia, before noting thata new Hollow has appeared. A few seconds later, Rukia's Denreishinkibegins beeping, prompting her to look at it and confirm that she just received a purificationorder for a new Hollow nearby. When Ichigo asks Rukia what direction theHollow is going to appear in, Uryū raises his arm and points down the street while assertingthat it will appear over there before criticizing Ichigo for calling himself a Shinigami whilenot knowing such a basic thing, to his consternation.

The cross on Uryū's wrist flares with blueReishi and forms his Heilig Bogen, Kojaku, as Uryū generates and pulls back a HeiligPfeil before releasing it, causing the Heilig Pfeil to arc across Karakura Town and piercea Hollow's head right as it enters the Human World. While the Hollow disintegrates, Ichigo lookson in shock while Rukia realizes that the purification order has disappeared. Turning to face Uryū, Ichigo demands to knowwhat he is, prompting Uryū to state his name before revealing that he is a Quincy who hatesShinigami, to Ichigo's confusion, and clarifying that he hates Ichigo specifically, shockingthe latter.

The next day, at Karakura High School, anirritated Ichigo walks through the halls as he recalls Uryū's criticism of his Shinigamiabilities. While wondering why he had to be insultedlike that by someone he just met, Ichigo vows to get Uryū the next time they meet, onlyto stop in his tracks as he tries to remember what Uryū said his name was. While Ichigo attempts to recall Uryū's firstname, Orihime pops up and brings up his mention of Ishida. Though Ichigo tries to deny this, Orihimeguesses that he is referring to Uryū Ishida, which Ichigo enthusiastically confirms whilestriking a pose and telling Orihime that she.

Is well-informed. Copying Ichigo's pose, Orihime denies thisand explains that she is merely in the same handicrafts club as Uryū, which is why sheknows his name, to Ichigo's shock. Shortly afterward, Orihime opens the doorto their homeroom and points out Uryū to Ichigo, who peers through the opening at him. Affirming that Uryū is the one he was thinkingof, Ichigo asks Orihime if he is really in the handicrafts club, which she confirms beforepointing out Michiru, who is bringing a torn stuffed doll over to Uryū. As Ichigo notes the convenience of this turnof events, Orihime tells him to watch closely.

Grabbing the stuffed doll out of Michiru'shands, Uryū throws it into the air and opens his sewing kit to withdraw a needle and threadbefore rapidly sewing shut the tear in the doll and biting off the thread. Upon having the repaired doll tossed backto her, Michiru gratefully thanks Uryū, only for him to coldly assert that it was no bigdeal. With a deflated Michiru apologizing, Orihimenotes that Uryū would be a nice guy if he did not say such things as Ichigo observesthat he is a weird guy and begins to walk away, only to stop when Orihime inquires ifsomething happened between him and Uryū. Assuring her that it was something minor andis not a big deal, Ichigo continues walking.

Away as Orihime sadly accepts that he is nottelling her the full story. Later that day, as Uryū walks up a set ofstairs somewhere in Karakura Town, he stops at the top and asks Ichigo if he plans onfollowing him all the way home. Stepping into view, Ichigo asks him when hefirst noticed, prompting Uryū to reveal that he has known ever since Ichigo and Orihimewatched him through the door. As Ichigo sarcastically congratulates himon this, Uryū notes that Ichigo's Reiatsu is constantly leaking out and that even amonkey would be able to detect him, to Ichigo's consternation. Uryū claims Ichigo lacks the ability to detectthose with high Reiatsu and uses his inability.

To notice Uryū before today as proof of this. Though Ichigo tries to excuse this as himbeing terrible at remembering faces, Uryū clarifies this is not what he is referringto and explains how he knew Ichigo had unusually high Reiatsu from when he first entered schooland became a Shinigami in the middle of May, shocking Ichigo, before revealing he alsoknows Rukia is a Shinigami herself. Suddenly, several of Reiraku spring up aroundUryū, leading a surprised Ichigo to identify them as Uryū explains that they are the compressionand manifestation of Reiatsu in the atmosphere. Moving down to Ichigo with Hirenkyaku, Uryūgrabs a red Reiraku in front of him and identifies it as Ichigo's before detailing how the Reirakuof Shinigami are colored differently from.

Those of normal Souls. As he lets go of the Reiraku, which dispersesand fades, Uryū challenges Ichigo to a duel so he can demonstrate who is stronger betweenthe two of them and how Shinigami are not necessary in this world. Meanwhile, outside the Urahara Shop, JintaHanakari and Ururu Tsumugiya play janken. When Jinta hits rock and Ururu hits scissors,Jinta points to the side while telling Ururu to look over there, but Ururu keeps lookingdownward. Jinta and Ururu play janken again, and whenJinta hits rock and Ururu hits paper, she points upward while telling Jinta to lookup, which he does instinctively.

As a shocked Jinta keeps looking up, Ururucheerfully tells him that it is his turn to sweep, but Jinta emphatically declares thathe has not lost yet and that they are playing for best two out of three. When Ururu asserts that he never said this,Jinta begins grinding his fists against her temples at high speeds while pushing for arematch, only for Tessai Tsukabishi to suddenly hold him high in the air by the collar ofhis shirt and calmly ask him what he is doing, prompting Jinta to frantically claim thathe is not doing anything. Suddenly, Rukia appears and kicks Tessai inthe behind, only to quickly leap back and kneel down to clutch her aching foot as anunfazed Tessai turns around and asks her what.

Business she has here today. After Rukia asks him if Urahara is here today,Tessai lets her inside, where Urahara greets her and inquires what he can do for her beforebeing knocked flat on his back when Rukia hits him in the face with her Denreishinki. Criticizing Urahara's welcoming words, Rukiaexplains that she has come in person because he has not answered any of her calls, promptingUrahara to sit up and apologize for not taking her previous calls due to his team being verybusy lately. As he walks in behind Rukia, Jinta asks herwhat happened to Ichigo and asserts that it is best for him to stay away because he doesnot like him, to Urahara's embarrassment,.

While Rukia reveals that she needs to askUrahara something. Back on the stairs, Ichigo confirms that Uryūwants to duel him, and the two stare each other down for several seconds before Ichigodeclares that such a thing would be ridiculous. When Uryū expresses confusion, Ichigo questionswhy he would have to do such a stupid thing and claims that whatever grudge Uryū holdsagainst Shinigami has nothing to do with him. Though Uryū wonders if he is afraid, Ichigorefuses to fall for such goading. However, as Ichigo states that it would beno contest regardless and begins to walk away, Uryū recounts how he is just a SubstituteShinigami who received his powers from Rukia and thus cannot lift a finger without herpermission, causing Ichigo to stop in his.

Tracks and demand to know what he just said. Back at the Urahara Shop, as Tessai sets downsome tea, Urahara notes that he has not heard the Quincy mentioned in a long time, withTessai observing that it is almost nostalgic because they have not heard it in almost 200years. When Rukia asks him what the term means, Uraharaexplains that they were a tribe scattered throughout the world which specialized indestroying Hollows. Urahara reveals that the Quincy were renderedextinct 200 years ago, to Rukia's surprise, and details how Humans with powers like Ichigo'ssensed the existence of Hollows and began training to fight against them, which is howthe tribe was formed.

Noting that their mission was the destructionof Hollows just like that of the Shinigami, Urahara states that the two groups differedon whether or not Hollows should be killed, as Shinigami purify Hollows and send themto Soul Society with their Zanpakutō while the Quincy sought to completely kill them,and admits that it was an understandable reaction with how Hollows got to enjoy the peace ofSoul Society despite killing so many. Explaining that this is why the Quincy alwayskilled Hollows because they believed that they were avenging their loved ones, Uraharareveals that this belief is why they were destroyed. Back at the stairs, Ichigo decides to acceptUryū's challenge and takes Kon out of his.

Bag. As Kon demands to know why Ichigo stuffedhim in his bag despite it being under Rukia's orders, Ichigo tells him that they are changingplaces, to Kon's horror, and fishes his Gikongan out of the doll's mouth. After wiping the Gikongan on his shirt, Ichigoswallows it and exits his body in his Shinigami form, where he tells Kon to watch him as hedefeats Uryū, prompting Kon to run out of the way with his bag while Ichigo tells Uryūto hurry up and explain the rules of this duel.
