I'm beginning to wonder if it is not truly over. I mean, the wrap ups of the Vizards and Yammy got as many panels. With those as benchmarks, one page of Ginjou and young Tsukishima as the complete flashback feels about right.
With what we know, what story is there to tell in a full chapter flashback? Sure, it might give us the much needed details to make sense of everything, but Kubo hasn't burdended himself with giving details before.
So, honestly, who would be surprised if the next chapter started with Ichigo back at school?
Edit: On a comedic note, I can see an omake in the anime addressing Rukia's new 'doors,' with a variety of uses for them. I envision Matsumoto trying to stuff two Saki jugs in there, with them not fitting of course, and Rukia with a : O face; lol.
Hmm, I'll have to see if I can pen that out...
