Picspam summary of ep 253 (part 2)

Part one here

The attack is, of course, intercepted... but not by any of the usual parties.

Is it just me, or does Orihime look almost as short as Rukia there?

Ichigo takes his chance to ask if Kouga's been defeated, as if Byakuya would be assisting them otherwise. Rukia notices Byakuya's shoulder wound, but he brushes off her concern. Byakuya says something about Muramasa, just as the freak-in-question starts to flip out again.

He says something, and his eye keeps flickering between the red eye of this form and the teal eye of his normal form.

Orihime notices this and mutters 'chigau' just before she runs towards Muramasa...

... and places herself as a shield between Hollow and Shinigami...

Rukia, of course, thinks this idea is pointless.

The boys, for some reason, just watch this whole thing.

She seems to be getting through to Muramasa, who just keeps muttering 'maken' over and over again.

Then the eye turns completely black and he flips! Rukia's warning gives Orihime enough time to summon her shield to defend herself...

...but Muramasa overpowers and shatters it, sending Orihime flying.

Something for the RukiHime shippers? C'mon, they provide the RenIchi crowd with material enough times.

Ichigo's pissed off now. Attacking Orihime in front of him is, as usual, a Bad Idea. And firing a Balas shower at him is a good way to piss him off even further...

With his mask, Ichigo is able to match Muramasa blow for blow. So Muramasa resorts to another cero...

Getsuuga Tenshou wins, naturally.

Ichigo's mask, just before it dissolves...

The Getsuuga didn't hit Muramasa dead on, but it did some damage...

Or not...

Muramasa freaks out again, with yet more red and black reiatsu flames...

Everyone recognises what is forming behind Muramasa, even Ichigo who charges forwards to stop him. Unfortunately his progress is hindered by a shitload of Hollows coming at him from all sides, which he has to defeat if he stands any chance of survival. There are even more of them than when the nakama first saw what Muramasa seems to be summoning.

Ishida isn't put off by the numbers though...

... and nor is Chad...

and Rukia's always ready to fight...

...while Byakuya isn't going to be shown up by anyone.

Ichigo gets close enough to unload a point blank Getsuuga Tenshou to Muramasa's chest...

Unfortunately, Muramasa is too stubborn to die that easily...

With a cry of 'maken' he begins to change, transform into something else.

Judging from the girls' reactions of 'sonna... Kurosaki-kun no reiatsu ga...' and 'masaka', I'm going to guess that they can't sense Ichigo anymore. Meanwhile, high above them, the cracks are getting worse...

Orihime tries to go towards The Blob, stating she wants to save Ichigo and Muramasa. Rukia, showing more sense in this situation, drags her away.

More Menos appear, spewed out by The Blob. Rukia and Orihime keep running. I, personally, think this is a wise decision given their strength in comparison to even a Gillian.

Unfortunately, it looks like they may soon have worse problems than a horde of mindless Gillians to worry about...

The Gillians open fire on the boys with cero blasts. Byakuya makes a mockery of the slow attacks, dodging until he releases his shikai on the weakest of the Menos Grandes, wiping them out with ease.

Unfortunately, the girls' escape did not go unnoticed...

Fortunately, help is at hand...

Shirayuki isn't the only new arrival though...

There are some pairs missing here: Shuuhei/Kazeshini, Kurotsuchi/Ashizogi (probably for the best), Kyouraku/Katen, Ukitake/Kotowari, Unohana/Minazuki and Yamamoto/Ryuujin. Where are they?

And why do I get the nasty feeling that Orihime is going to attempt to save Ichigo and Muramasa?
