Ichigo and Uryū dispatch the gang with ease but are interrupted when Ichigo's part-time job boss kidnaps and forces him to work. Their client, the owner of the stolen bag, requests an investigation on Isshin Kurosaki, Ichigo's father. Ichigo declines but is intrigued when the owner reveals his younger sister, Karin Kurosaki, had been visiting Kisuke Urahara. The owner introduces himself as Kugo Ginjo and gives Ichigo a Xcution business card. Uryū, passing by Ichigo's house, pursues a strange man and is critically injured as a result.
