In this volume we continue with Chad missing and Ichigo and Rukia are in fear of Chad's life being put in danger, Ichigo uses the parakeets soul to find Chad, leaving Rukia shocked because Ichigo is developing quickly and could sense souls that some soul reapers could not. We then move on to seeing Chad being chased by a hollow and Karin telling Ichigo that she saw that the parakeet was a child and she was able to see some of his memories, the most terrifying was that he saw his mother get murdered, because of this Karin is extremely sick and saddened and she cried for the first time in years according to Ichigo and she is taken home by Ichigo while Rukia is struggling against a hollow but Chad goes to help her and he is able to hit hollows despite not being able to see them. Then Ichigo arrives and takes on the hollow, he is able to win and makes the discovery that the child in the parakeet was the one who murdered the hollow, when the hollow was attempting to murder his mother the child grabbed his shoe lace and he ended up falling off a building to his death, however he trapped the child's soul in a parakeet and told him that if he could run away from him for 3 months he would bring back his mother, this was a lie but the child did not know of this therefore he would always ask anyone who could see him for help, which resulted in them being killed by the hollow. Ichigo then hits him with the final blow however the hollow is sent into hell because he committed sins while alive therefore he was no longer able to enter soul society. Then Chad, Rukia and Ichigo say their farewells to the child and they send him to soul society where he could be reunited with his mother once again. Then we move on to Rukia buying Ichigo pills so he can make his soul come out of his body on his own and without Rukia's help, these pills are special because Ichigo's body would be able to perform his tasks so nobody would know he was gone, however the pills given to Rukia accidentally, had a defect on them and made another spirit called a mod soul to take over his body, this spirit was mischievous and caused a lot of trouble especially for Ichigo’s reputation. After the spirit encounters a hollow and is saved by Ichigo, Ichigo acquires sympathy for the spirit because it tells him that his birth and death was decided and he should have the right to live or to die, he shouldn't be controlled like that, especially when his soul was created to benefit the soul reapers and then they were killed because they were no longer needed, Rukia then saves his soul and they keep the pill where he was kept, the problem now is to fix all the things that the soul did in Ichigo's body.
