The training with Soi Fon wasn't completely useless, seeing as it let Ichigo avoid being killed by Tousen long enough for the cavalry to arrive and save him. Anyway, great story, faved, sad to see it over. This isn't even my first or second time reading it. I just thought of something, though: how is Ichigo going to make "Hogey" a believable pet if he presumably has to keep manifesting it? At some point the twins would surely notice, even if Ichigo can hold the manifestations for a few hours at a time now.

Again, Zaraki Kenpachi would be formally addressed as "Zaraki-taicho" and not "Kenpachi-taicho." Your content is top-notch, so I notice the small stuff that needs correcting.

Soi Fon would call Kenpachi "Zaraki-taicho," not "Kenpachi-taicho." It's hard to remember he has a last name, I know, but Soi Fon has no association with him other than as a colleague. Similarly, I don't remember if I mentioned this before, but if I remember correctly Ukitake was calling Ichigo "Ichigo-kun" as early as when he handed Ichigo the Substitute badge, so unless Ukitake's more wary of him now that he's immensely more powerful and from the future, I don't see why he would start calling him "Kurosaki-san." Also, Ichigo broke the Black Coffin with his hand, not his sword. (That's really not important, but it makes him much more badass.)

The Cero Ulquiorra shoots through Ichigo's chest is a Cero Oscuras, not a Gran Rey Cero.

Did he turn the Hogyoku into a dog?
If so, how?
I'm a bit confused
Wonder full story regardless!

I can really appreciate you thinking the illness thing out so well! Kudos!
I really need to rewatch bleach, but every time I try I grow tired of it -_-'

So. In the past few chapters of this story you try to work in as much of the fillers and movies that you can, even the admittedly bizarre and crappy ones.
And yet even with all that random stuff included you chose to discard Senna, who is almost universally considered to be the most likable movie character, in order generate some cheap drama for your fic?
You know what? FU, you suck. You really do.

For the multiple choice, It was a mix of A and B for me. Seriously though, only morons kill off Yoruichi, no shit it's Kyoka Suigetsu.

I just reread Hogyoku Ex Machina for the fourth time and just wanted you to know that people are still hoping that you will post the next chapter of the sequel. I understand how distracting real life can be and maybe by this coming July you will be ready to continue, which would make a lot of people really happy. Thank you for writing such an amazing time travel story and actually finishing it, I believe that this is the only complete one on the whole site. The sequel is a just wonderful bonus that will someday be just as great no matter how long it takes you.

Your book has made me really happy. Thank you for the experience.

I wanted to wait, and post a review at the end but after reading this chapter I just had to say that this is an amazing story. The characterizations are so believable, especially Yamamoto, whom I found to be especially detestable. Really I hope your Ichigo will get around to giving him the what for, because he seriously needs a swift kick where the sun doesn't shine. Ichigo and his friends don't owe him or Soul Society a damn thing. And he's so willing to the ones around him burn for his f...king bigger picture, he forgets that that big picture is comprised of many small pictures that have already and will continue to bite him in the ass if he doesn't wise up.

I very nearly shed manly tears at Rukia thinking about the scene that flashed before the projector hit the floor.

Yes, Isshin WILL always be a Shiba haha. I'm sure you know by know that his being a Shiba is actually canon now. I came into this story knowing that, and (not paying attention to the update timeline) I thought you had written this knowing that already, which led me to be confused when you kept mentioning him being in the Seventh Division instead of the Tenth.
"So this is the sky! So this is the dirt!" Aren't they still in the Precipice World? ... Okay, I guess not, if Tousen's flying up into the sky. I must have just missed when they got to Hueco Mundo. Still, Isshin's Getsuga Tenshou should be blue, not black, and Chad's left arm's attack is either El Muerte or La Muerte. ... Oh wait, "the time currents are always shifting." Okay, so they didn't leave the Precipice World.
