hi guys, ive just begun to get into this anime seriously with a purchase of the 1st dvd set and seeing that its already into 100+ epis, am curious of the general direction its taken since epi 36. ive visited some reference site but the itd take a lot of time for me to digest it so some quick summaries would be much appreciated. some immediate questions: - whats the resolution of the save rukia campaign? - further development of ichiko's power and the guy in the hats role, long term. - how/where does the anime deviate critically from the manga, if any. thx.
