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.
In the previous episodes, the fight between Yhwach and Yamamoto draws the curtain. Yhwach successfully deceives Yamamoto and tricks him into thinking that he is fighting the real him, but it is just a decoy.
Yamamoto realises that he was being fooled the entire time, but it is too late to realise that, and that mistake cost him his life.
The captains who were not fatally injured meet in the meeting room, where they will decide what to do next.
Rukia and Renji also were saved, and their lives were out of danger. On the other hand, Ichigo learns that his sword cannot be restored in the soul society.
Later we finally get to see Squad zero, who arrive in the soul society on tenchuren, a vehicle used by squad zero for commuting purposes.
While it looked like squad 0 is on a different level than the captains of Soul Society. All five were captain-level members, and their overall strength was more potent than the entire gotie 13 combined.
They were here to pick up Ichigo, Renji, Rukia and Byakuya because their medical treatment can no longer be done in soul society.
They were also sure that they could restore his sword to its original state, so Ichigo decided to go with them. We also got to see grimjow however, it was only for few frames.
We also got to see the strongest character in the verse which is the soul king.
