Taking a moment to send a somber farewell to Christopher Lee, who passed away Sunday at age 93.
A truly legendary actor and one of the most interesting humans on the planet, he served in the British Secret Service, was famous for his roles as Dracula, Bond villain 'Scaramanga', and more recently Sarumon the White in Lord of the Rings and Count Dooku in Star Wars.
Read up on the dude sometime. You'll be sad you didn't read about him earlier.
Seireitei is crumbling and the Gotei is a shell of its former self. Ravaged by the plague, the surviving Shinigami struggle to maintain the balance, but with so few of them left, the work is taxing and their fortress-city has fallen to neglect. Spread thin across all fronts, their diminished presence has been noted by friend and foe alike.
The Arrancar have rebuilt Las Noches and are rallying. The throne remains empty, but self-styled Espada have risen up from among them and are vying for control, each one endlessly testing the others’ weaknesses. Too evenly matched for any one of them to claim the crown, they bide their time, waiting for the opportune moment.
On Earth, all seems well—but there is a war being fought in the shadows as the mortals find themselves lacking the protection they once had and so sorely need. The Quincy, having realized the oppressive specter of the Shinigami is no more, are flourishing, and are fighting the Hollow-breeds with renewed vigor.
