The plot diverges with Ichigo being forcibly recruited into the Vandenreich during their first invasion, although it quickly adopts a [[{{AlternateCharacterInterpretation}} different and more sympathetic view]] of the Quincy and their empire than in canon. Even before then however the plot diverges with a few match-ups being changed.
