I thought this was much better than many of the prior Bleach volumes. I particularly enjoyed the display of Captain Commander Yamamoto's abilities. Personally, I feel like he's been a lost character in many of the prior media (both manga and anime versions). To me, it's always felt like he's had respect, but we've never seen enough of his power for me to be able to feel respect for him. His massive display of power in this volume is what gives me respect for him and I'm glad there's been a little bit of attention given to him.
