Urahara proved once again he is just one big troll. It wouldnt surprise me if he turns out to be the soul king. So speculations on why they cant absorb ichigo's bankai? maybe cause he is also hollow? how do they know who he is anyway?
My only real complaint so far for this arc is that the quincy weapon names are so stupid, blut arterie? WTF?
P.S. was that don chakka in one of the panels? isnt he supposed to be captured?
