I love those last few panels... as Orihime and Ulquiorra never quite touch... that's so... Asian. The *perfect* romance in Chinese literature is one that never, ever gets fulfilled. It's the ache that never gets relieved, and this so... fits and it's so beautiful...
AND IT'S SO ANNOYING.

*laughs* I hope he does come back. It'll be interesting to figure out how or why... or what. I'd wondered about the regeneration. I love that it was Ulquiorra's attack that did bring Ichigo back, that made sense. But I'm still not quite sure why he just poofs to dust rather than go smaller the way the girl-Arrancar did.
