Bleach 33 (m&c!)

Bleach © Kubo Tite/Shueisha (Serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump)
Published in Indonesia by PT Gramedia/m&c!

Dead-tired from battling Grimmjow, Ichigo is really not looking forward to fighting higher ranked Quinto Espada Nnoitra Jiruga, Bleach 33's cover boy. Not when Nnoitra recognizes Nell as Nelliel Tu Odelschwanck, the former Tres Espada now deaged to a tyke, and targets her and Orihime.

Nor are Uryuu, Renji and Nel sibs Dondochakka and Pesche happy campers over Szayel Aporro's reappearance, especially as the Mad Scientist Arrancar only has voodoo doll torture in store for them. [Additions from Wikipedia]

I will return with m&c! covers and blurbs for the rest after they have been uploaded. Edit: Replaced covers and the rest of the summaries are after the manga list.
