The official website describes the story for the episode:
Isane and Yachiru, who are healing Kensei and the others, are attacked by Guenael Lee, a Sternritter with the ability to erase not only their appearance, but also their opponent’s memories of them at will. Yachirou is repeatedly “meeting for the first time”, but she uses her instincts and reflexes to parry the blow of her invisible enemy, then draws her zanpakutou and attacks again. Yachirou’s ability to use shikai surprises Isane and corners Guenael. At that moment, however, another enemy quietly appears in the ward.
