In the same vein as the Episode 1 thread, this details an event which would hold up the plot in a major way if done in a main thread. In this case, Yen's funeral. The events of this thread take place between the Captains' meeting and Satoshi's team leaving for the Mortal World.

Music starts.

Daisuke stands in front of the assembled Shinigami, holding the funeral for Vice-Captain Kayzumai Yen, who was killed by an Espada recently.

We are gathered here to mourn and remember one of our own who was killed in the line of duty. His name was Kayzumai Yen, and he was the Vice-Captain of the 2nd division.
