Will Renji's bankai prove strong enough to defeat his own captain?

As the third season of Bleach continues, director Noriyuke Abe shifts from farcical comedy to high adventure with the seemingly effortless grace of a gymnast sticking a dismount. TV star Don Kanonji finds Kon the stuffed lion wandering around and recruits the plushie, Ichigo's sisters, and Urahara's assistants Jinta and Ururu, for a campaign to boost his show's flagging ratings. This slapstick interlude offers a respite from the vicious battles raging in the land of the Soul Society. Chaos reigns in the armed compound of the Seireitei, as many of the captains and lieutenants join the teenagers from Earth in the effort to rescue Rukia. While Kenpachi and Renji take on their former comrades-in-arms, Yoruichi oversees Ichigo's struggles to achieve Bankai, the ultimate power over his Zanpak- tô sword. Despite exhaustion and wounds he's received from Zangetsu, the spirit of his sword, Ichigo continues to train with super-human determination. But time is running out: The morning of Rukia's execution is dawning, with her brother Byakuya and the reptilean Ichimaru stand ready to fight off any challengers. (Rated "Teen," suitable for ages 13 and older: violence, grotesque imagery) -- Charles Solomon
