After performing our duties in the living world under the new procedures for around a week, I thought it prudent to issue a status update, based on squad leader reports given to Captain Ukitake and our own observations.

Once we were able to reach the living world, the main problem was the large number of souls that could not be sent here by our 'substitutes'. Instead of just being a bureaucratic headache, large concentrations of Pluses served as lures for Hollows; this was and continues to be a problem, especially in the most densely populated cities.

Many officers, especially those with experience being stationed in the living world, are fully capable of defeating Hollows without shikai, even if they cannot be purified, but the more powerful Hollows present some difficulty. Additionally, if we devote more resources to fighting instead of soul transfer, the backup won't get much smaller and will continue to attract more Hollows than usual.

Thanks to the quick work of the Twelfth Division, the manual escorts through the dangai are proceeding mostly without incident, but they're slower. To be completely frank, it's much easier to perform konso on an unwilling soul than it is to drag them through an ominous-looking tunnel. When it comes down to making a choice, that is technically an option, but it's not the ideal choice, and it still slows us down.

Right now, our plan is to continue focusing on the soul transfers and dispatch as many squads as possible to hold back the Hollows until we can reach a balance point once more. If our fellow officers and captains have ideas for procedure improvements, please direct them to me and Captain Ukitake will review them.

This has nothing to do with the rest of what I wrote. Mostly nothing. I saw your father the other day, and I came away wondering if you really ought to have a talk with him.

Okay, I hear you. I did talk to him about some other things, but... you mean tell him about us, don't you?

Oh hell do not want.

Not exactly. I don't want to lie to him, certainly...it was a little awkward when we spoke, but nothing I can't handle. It's not his lack of knowledge that bothers me so much as his...skewed expectations.

Ugh. I'll just say it. I think he wants all the time you're spending with Inoue to make you fall in love with her and decide to stay in the living world.

...That's gonna make it a more complicated conversation. I was... But if he's dragging Orihime back into this, he needs to be set straight. It was hard enough to tell her the truth about how I saw her, I'm not gonna let Pop involve her in something that should be between me and him.

Sorry to make you the messenger on somethin' like this. I'll see what I can do.

I just don't want him to set up false expectations based on the wrong assessment of the situation...and doesn't that sound clinical. But I like your father, and it's going to be hard enough for him to let you go as it is.

I don't think he's going to like me very much after this.

I have no problem with deployment in the living world. In fact, I think it would be quite fun.

One question, how powerful is "more powerful"?

Powerful enough that an average shinigami would need to use their shikai against it. Unfortunately, that's no longer an option.

That never was an option.

So you all lost them, huh? Does anybody still have their zanpakuto?

Quite a few zanpaktuou have chosen to remain with their wielders, but they remain unable to return to their usual form, making shikai and bankai impossible.

[OOC: I can't tell from this whether you're caught up on the sword-spirits plot, but if not, some backreading is definitely a good idea. ♥ ]

Maybe the unwilling souls should be sedated?

I'm not sure how that would work.
