Bleach anime series has returned with the Thousand Year Blood War arc after almost 10 years. The first 2 episodes showed us a glimpse of what to expect for the remaining of the season, and fans cannot wait for the new episode release.
Bleach manga was written and illustrated by Tite Kubo. It was serialized for fifteen years in Shueisha’s Weekly Shōnen Jump from August 7, 2001, to August 22, 2016.
Episode 2 begins with Luders and Ebern arguing in front of Yhwach, ultimately both of them getting killed by Yhwach.
Later it is revealed that Yhwach has captured Harribel and Hueco Mundo has already been destroyed by Quincy’s, and they have taken the remaining survivors hostages.
On the other hand, Ichigo could not sleep suddenly due to the strange things happening; while patrolling, he met Nel, who was escaping from Hueco Mundo.
After taking her home, Nel tells everyone what happened in Hueco Mundo and asks for help from Ichigo. She explains how Harribel took them over after the death of the previous owners of Hueco Mundo.
Meanwhile, Urahara makes and sudden appearance and asks them if they want to visit Hueco Mundo and save the reaming survivors.
Ichigo quickly agrees and goes with them, along with Orihime and Chad. However, Ishida declines the request to save them.
Meanwhile, the remaining Espadas tried to fight Quilge, the commander at the scene responsible for the attack.
However, they were no match for him and were defeated quickly. On the other hand, Ichigo finally arrives at the scenes and takes the matter into his own hands.
