Rangiku and the members of the Women's Soul Reaper Association take a relaxing trip to a beach in the World of the Living. All the women are excited about wearing bathing suits that they have picked out for the occasion. Jushiro Ukitake, Ikkaku, and Renji make their way to the beach as well. When a bewildered Ichigo goes into the beach shack, he runs into Chad, Uryu, and Orihime, who are working there. Toshiro Hitsugaya uses his Hyorinmaru to make the ice required for the shaved ice they sell. When everyone reassembles on the beach, Jushiro proposes a sand art contest. They all put some money in a betting pool and start making various things out of sand.
