There weren't many occasions that warranted an emergency captain meeting, if a Ryoka had entered the Soul Society the meeting would only be called once the gates had been breached and most of the Gotei 13 would already be on the task of hunting them down after begging for an excuse to get away from the paperwork.
Which when you think about it must be a lot of the time, a hundred years of paperwork must make the prospect rare invasion/raid/civil war much more interesting. Perhaps one of the only highlights in their li- I mean dea-... whatever.
"So what's the big deal this time? Aizen made his move?" Shunsui Kyoraku, captain of the 8th division asked, lifting up his shade. His expression was not of a person who seemed to be taking things seriously, mirrored somewhat by Captain Mayuri's although the 12th division's captain's apathy was most likely caused by the meeting interrupting one of his more important experiments, Shunsui was trying to hide a sense of forboding about the situation.
"No, the traitors still bide their time in the world of hollows but this situation is much worse."
"Worse than an army of captain-level arrancar and more attacking?" Jushiro Ukitake, captain of the 13th division, gasped.
"It seems that once more the cycle is threatened, we are not the only entity fighting Hollows on the mortal plane."
"A resurgence in the Quincy race perhaps commander?"
"No, and this is why I called this meeting, whereas the Quincy were easy to pursue due to their unique spiritual energy compared to a shinigami, this is more the elimination of spirit particles all together, from the data our 12th division captain has handed to me we estimate that approximately 10 souls a week are lost this way, this means one hollow every 3.5 days if we are to take the average Gillian level."
"Yet there are 6 billion souls to replace them, I hardly think 520 a year is going to make a dent, considering the average human lifespan, worst case is that birth rates get a little lower in some areas of the world, I don't see why your getting your robe in a twist about this."
"Unfortunatley those statistics are slightly misleading," Captain Mayuri interjected, trying not to yawn "these numbers were achieved in an area with fairly low spiritual input and constitute 99% of all hollows in the area, should this be tried in a spiritual nexus we could lose thousands of hollows from the cycle of souls in a week, and since no Shinigami has been to the location personally they may turn hostile on us as well, having no prior interaction, and they may consider any post-life-form to be a threat."
"So what do we do?"
"So what do we do?" Peter Venkmen, part of the exorcist for hire squad in New York known as the Ghostbusters. Dressed in a beige jumpsuit, bouncing a tennis ball against a wall out of boredom.
"We've taken out nearly every ghost and ghoul." Egon Spengler said, working on the proton packs.
"Gremlins, goblins, both regular and of the hob-variety." Winston Zeddmore, the official 'token minority' of the group. So called that because of an accusation thrown at the group that the only reason they hired him was so they didn't get called racist.
"And whatever those psuedo-invisible masks things were." Raymond Stantz finished, those things were wierd. Invisible to the human eye unless given what would seem like cheap 3D glasses and probably at the heart of the goggles, were, complete with the headache inducing 'one-side red, the other blue' deal.
"So now we have no business because we've done it all, those city bonuses for that thing last year helped but it ain't gonna last forever."
"We could release a couple ghosts…" Venkmen suggested.
"What?" All the others shouted, turning to face Pete, who simply shrugged his shoulders
"Just saying, they've probably forgotten about the lower originals we could probably get away with releasing a few then cleaning them up for some quick cash."
"No, we do that and not only do we create a variation of a protection racket, we also risk releasing all the ghosts at once."
"What if we relocate?" Ray asked "Find some place that needs cleaning up from the supernatural and set up business there. We've still got enough money for that right? There must be plenty of ghost wells that haven't dried up."
"He may be right. If we view the two worlds as Venn diagrams consisting as two circles, with the presense of the original ghosts in this world would indicate…"
"Can you get to the point Egon, I don't want to become a ghost listening to this." Peter groaned, discarding the tennis ball.
"New York is not the centre of the universe, nor is it the sole link to these phenomenon."
"We could try Tokyo, I mean when it's not getting crushed by Godzilla, they've got all these superstitions, Kappa, Shinigami, a lot of different demons, even if only 10% turn out to be true we could still break even on travel expenses and we'll have something to do."
"I'm not that big on raw fish but it is an idea."
"Any work there is what I want to know, that's the most imprtant thing." Winston put foward
"Well there is a theory that there is a nexus point with latitude and longitude that corresponds with a location in Japan, with the closest airport being Tokyo. If you could pass me a map of the country I should find it within a day." Egon told the rest of the group.
"So the Ghostbusters are finally heading to Japan, I always wanted to see the world."
"There's just one problem with this whole 'let's start again in Japan' thing." Spengler added just as Ray was getting lost in his fantasy.
"I know, we're going to have to sell the car, I'm going to miss it, we had just got the cup holders right, we never had the chance to install nitrous either, or those new spinners."
"I was referring to the fact that to 'start again' we'll need to either form new proton packs and other items there or smuggle them aboard what will most likely be a chater flight."
"I thought the problem was none of us can speak Japanese." Ray said scratching his head.
"That too." Peter conceded.
Yeah, I was surprised when I found there wasn't a Ghostbusters/Bleach crossover well there is one now!
