Up in the soul society, Ikkaku who is beside himself, is thinking about the three open captain positions, while laying in a nearby meadow area. He considers helping out in many areas if and whenever asked to help out, whether it be training soul reapers of lower rank than him or advising and leading any group of soul reapers on missions. But Ikkaku sticks by the fact that even though he's willing to help he doesn't want to switch divisions out of the one he's already in, and the fact that he wants to follow captain Zaraki the whole time he's in the 13 quart guard squads. Meanwhile in the world of the livlng, Uryuu is sitting outside in the quartyard beneath the shade of a tree and thinking about his battle that he had with the 12th captain and what Mayuri had revealed to him. It still angers him to this day and time and he doesn't know what to do about it yet except to keep getting stronger, to keep helping everyone out, and trying to find a way to bring what Mayuri did to the knowledge of the rest of the soul reaper captains one day. He didn't know what the other soul reaper captains would do with the knowledge of course but he figures that they should be informed if they weren't before.
