In the SRDI, as members monitor a screen displaying the two worlds, 12th Division 3rd Seat Akon enters the room and asks a member what the status is. Stating the space is still expanding, the member says they have sent the Onmitsukidō in to investigate. As he states they will begin the infiltration shortly, Rin Tsubokura, saying he has found them, states they will pass through the Dangai in ten seconds and will enter the new dimensional space. As he opens communication lines, an Onmitsukidō member exclaims something has happened to the exit.
As the panels displaying the Onmitsukidō members' current status flip to reveal they are in danger, the member, saying they have an emergency, states infiltration of the target has failed. As the member calls for backup, Rin, saying they have received their SOS, states they are sending backup. As SRDI members shout orders to one another, screams are heard on the other end. As Akon asks if they can hear them and why they cannot get into the space, the panels slide again to reveal the Onmitsukidō members have been killed, leaving the SRDI members to stare at the screen in horror.
Meanwhile, in the Human World, as Humans go about their day, a female Plus runs through the trees as an unseen presence roars. As one of the Humans notices something, a tree falls over onto the sidewalk as Ichigo Kurosaki, Rukia Kuchiki, and Kon run towards it. As Rukia states it is coming, Ichigo, reaching into his pocket, pulls out his Substitute Shinigami badge as Rukia pulls out her Gikon dispenser. Running towards the dust cloud, Ichigo enters his Shinigami form and jumps as Rukia follows suit. As a Hollow emerges from the dust, Ichigo cuts its forearm off.
As they land on the ground, the Hollow leaps away, prompting Ichigo to tell it to come back. As the Hollow jumps from tree to tree, the curious Humans, unable to see it, watch from the ground. As the roaring Hollow continues to leap, Ichigo chases it and cuts its tail off in midair, causing it to fall and crash through several trees. As it continues to charge, Ichigo stands in its path and blocks its attack with Zangetsu. When it jumps back, Ichigo leaps into the air and cuts it in half.
As the purified Hollow fades away, Rukia, approaching with the Plus and Kon, states the Hollow was after the Plus. When Ichigo looks at the Plus, she recoils in fear, prompting Rukia to tell her he only looks scary. As Ichigo tells the Plus it is time to go, Rukia says Soul Society is not a scary place, and it is where all departed Souls go to live. When the Plus begins to protest, Ichigo says if she stays here, more Hollows will come after her. Putting the glowing hilt of Zangetsu to the Plus' forehead, Ichigo performs Konsō, turning the Plus into a ball of light which ascends into the sky.
As Ichigo, Rukia, and Kon walk down the steps, they are greeted by Chappy in Rukia's Gigai. Returning to her Gigai, Rukia tells Ichigo to not use his badge so recklessly and elbows him in the ribs. As he clutches his side in pain, Rukia grabs Kon and forces his lips to Ichigo's. As they both gag, Rukia reminds Ichigo he has Kon and states she is tired of him tossing his body all over the place and leaving her to take care of it. When Ichigo asks why, Rukia demonstrates how someone would react if they saw his body lying on the ground.
As Rukia says the commotion always means more work for her, they see an ambulance and a crowd of people around Ichigo's body, which is on a stretcher. As a doctor states he is going into cardiac arrest, Rukia says she told him so as Ichigo runs towards his body. Returning to his body, Ichigo bolts up, shocking the people around him, and says he is fine. As the doctors try to restrain him, an exasperated Rukia uses her Kikanshinki, which glows before creating an explosion of pink smoke.
As Ichigo, Rukia, and Kon run out of the park, Rukia states it is lucky they had the Kikanshinki. Calling Kon over, Rukia throws him at Ichigo, who asks why she did so. When she states it would be pointless if he did not keep Kon with him, Ichigo asks why he has to carry him. Kon complains about being stuck with Ichigo, who throws him on the ground, stomping on him, and tells him to shut up. Hearing her Denreishinki beep, Rukia pulls it out and sees multiple red dots on the screen.
When Ichigo asks if it is another Hollow, Kon jumps on his face, prompting him to state he got dog feces in his mouth. As Kon says they are even, Ichigo resumes stomping on him. When Rukia tries to get his attention, Ichigo says he is not done kicking him yet before feeling a large amount of Reiatsu. Running down the street, Rukia states it is near the station as Ichigo, carrying Kon, follows her. When Ichigo asks why there is such a large amount of Reiatsu, Rukia, saying she does not know, states she has never felt anything like it.
Arriving at the station, Ichigo and Rukia see a mass of white figures with pink, conical heads. When Ichigo accidentally bumps into one, it and several others look at him before moving away. When Ichigo asks what they are, Kon claims they are white ghosts. Noting the people at the station cannot see them, Rukia says they must be Souls. As Ichigo states they do not have Chains of Fate on their chests, Rukia states they have no choice and exits her Gigai once more. When Ichigo pulls out his badge, Rukia tells him to use Kon.
Pulling Kon's pill out of his plushie, Ichigo, wiping it off on his shirt, swallows it and exits his body. Following Rukia, he tells Kon to hide somewhere. Telling Ichigo to not just leave him here, Kon is surrounded by the figures. Contacting Soul Society, Rukia tells Ichigo to see if he can perform Konsō on the figures. As Rukia explains the situation, Ichigo draws Zangetsu and states he will give it a shot. When he presses the hilt against one of the figures, nothing happens, and the figure moves past him. As Ichigo tells Rukia it does not work, Rukia states she has lost the connection to Soul Society.
As the wind picks up, the heads of the figures turn red, and they begin advancing towards Ichigo and Rukia. Seeing Rukia being grabbed by one of them, Ichigo pushes them out of the way and runs towards her as Kon struggles to keep them back. Knocking the figures out of the way, Ichigo assumes a battle stance as Rukia wonders what they should do. As a tornado forms behind the figures, a female Shinigami moves through the crowd and cuts through the figures as Ichigo wonders who she is. As the Shinigami, jumping over them, lands behind them and continues cutting through the figures, Rukia asks what she is doing.
As the Shinigami is lifted into the air by a tornado, Kon frees himself from one of the figures' body and sees a man standing in front of him. As the Shinigami spins in midair, Rukia states she is going to release her Zanpakutō. As the Shinigami calls out the release command, Ichigo appears in front of her and attacks her, stopping the release. As Rukia calls out to him, Ichigo, asking the Shinigami what she is doing, states the figures are not Hollows. Telling Ichigo to be quiet, the Shinigami kicks him to the ground and begins to spin once more. As Ichigo yells at her for stepping on his face, the Shinigami releases her Shikai, Mirokumaru, and creates a tornado, which destroys the figures as it moves through the crowd.
Asking what is happening, Kon gets up, wondering where the man went, but is knocked down by the figures, who move over him. As the Shinigami continues to destroy the figures, her tornado creates gusts of wind, which affect the Humans nearby. As the wind dies down, Ichigo is surprised to see the figures are gone. As Rukia wonders what happened, the Shinigami, now in a Gigai, happily exclaims she got them before noticing Ichigo and Rukia. Demanding to know when she entered her Gigai, Ichigo asks what she is, prompting her to state she is a Shinigami.
When Ichigo says he knows this, the Shinigami states he should introduce himself before asking so many questions. After Ichigo introduces himself, the Shinigami introduces herself as Senna and prepares to leave. When Ichigo asks her why she wiped out the figures, Senna states it should be obvious. When Rukia asks her if she knows something about the figures, Senna runs over to a store window and states yellow does not suit her. When Ichigo tries to get her attention, she points out his body lying on the ground with three police officers next to it, one of which is reporting to the police station. As Ichigo notices Kon's pill on the ground, Senna states she has to get going. As Ichigo grabs her by the arm and pulls her along, Rukia calls him a fool.
In the Seireitei, 11th Division 3rd Seat Ikkaku Madarame, drinking sake, tosses the bottle to 7th Division Lieutenant Tetsuzaemon Iba and asks if he has had enough. As Iba tells him to not be ridiculous, Ikkaku asks if it is okay for a lieutenant to be drinking sake at noon, prompting Iba to state he has had so little he might as well be drinking water. When Iba shakes the bottle and states they are out of sake, Ikkaku says he told him he drinks too much.
When Iba tells him to calm down, Ikkaku grabs Hōzukimaru and asks if he wants to fight again. Saying the loser buys the next round of sake, Iba moves to the rooftop. As Ikkaku comments on him moving to high ground again, Iba states it is first come, first serve. Telling him to get ready, Ikkaku sees something behind Iba and stops mid-sentence, prompting Iba to ask what is wrong. Looking at the sky above Iba, Ikkaku, asking what is going on, sees a town through a hole in the sky which continues to expand.

- In the film, the special ability of Suzumebachi is different than its canonical counterpart, as Kubo had not yet shown what it actually did. In the manga and anime, the victim's body is obliterated by a butterfly-shaped crest; however, when she is stabbed a second time, Benin is bifurcated, and she fades away instead of being destroyed.
