6x16Urgent Report! Aizen's Terrifying Plan Episode Summary Aired: Wednesday May 9, 2007
Ichigo finally regains his resolve to fight after a little blunt truth from Kenpachi, while Ichigo's outer body has been completely taken over by his Hollow and now battles Love. Before he is able to execute a cero blast, a high-level Hollow ability, Ichigo regains control after having won the fight against his inner Hollow. As the episode ends Aizen's true target is discovered to be the King's Key, a duplicate of which can be made only by extracting 100,000 souls from the spirit-enriched Karakura Town.
