Indeed. New chapter was interesting.
Apparently, Ichigo is only one of five 'special weapons.' That conveniently sounds like the number of the main cast. XD [I'm guessing the other four are Rukia, Orihime, Uryu, and Chad]
Speaking of Uryu, we hear from Kirge that he's apparently supposed to be more powerful than him. [I guess the Ishidas are a special family of Quincy?]
Stern Ritter, an elite group of Vandenreich, goes on with the invasion of the Soul Society with the rest of the organization [The King was shown to be going there too if I remember correctly] as they reach it at the chapter's end.
The Seireitei has always been remotely untouchable. I am very curious to see what comes out of this group invading them full-on. [It's not the same as with Ichigo's rather small rescue team from the second arc]
