(For those who aren't able to tell what's going on in Panels 1 and 2...it's a nod to another character that Ulquiorra's VA (Daisuke Namikawa) played (Gennosuke Fujiki in Shigurui: Death Frenzy). Gennosuke learned to literally flick his sword out with just his thumb on the scabbard, and would catch it in mid-air to strike. In Shigurui, however, he would continue the motion by catching the sword by the very end of it's hilt, between his index and middle finger knuckles, and then swing it in a wide arc as a finishing move.)

Quick question...

Does Ulquiorra's scabbard also have a hilt on it, or is it just a sort of after-image effect?

@Bojack727: It's just the starting/ending position. No scabbard has a hilt of its own, to my knowledge.

@Rip the Hunter: Cool, that's what I figured. I have a couple of Katana's myself, and one of them has a "cap" on the end of it, like Ulquiorra's.

It's a little less common than a standard end-piece. It makes re-lacing the handle more difficult. But from what I can tell, having the solid end peace like that allows it to be more ornamental (ex. potentially more precious metals can be used in it).

would you remind me of the purpose of that particular kido?

@Phoenixtrainer89: It's just a bolt of lightning, basically. Byakuya used it to either get Ulquiorra to move, or blind him if he didn't. Either works.
