Customer Reviews of Bleach V08-Entry
Severely wounded, Renji begins to remember his own past. He grew up a young street rat on the Soul Society, with Rukia & a little gang. After the death of their friends, he & Rukia enrolled in the Soul Reaper academy, & for Rukia's good, Renji distanced him self from her, & did not protest when she was adopted by Byakuya Kuchiki.
As Uryu finishes off a very dishonorable soul reaper, Ichigo and Ganju decide to save themselves by taking a hostage - Hanataro Yamada. Unfortunately, the Soul Reapers following them don't care much about Hanataro because he's from another squad. But when he learns that Ichigo intends to rescue Rukia, the timid Hanataro agrees to help them.
