Bleach: Sennen Kessen-hen – Ketsubetsu-tan Episode 1
Title:The Last 9 Days
The long-awaited return of Bleach is finally here after a 6-month hiatus, rekindling the excitement and anticipation among fans. However, along with the resurgence of hype, the formidable Yhwach and his malevolent allies have also made a comeback, prompting Ichigo to intensify his training within the Soul Palace. Despite nearing the completion of his course, there’s an undeniable sense of uncertainty regarding his ability to overcome the formidable Yhwach.
While briefly setting aside his own doubts, the story picks up from the previous cliffhanger, revealing the surprising twist that Uryuu has aligned himself with the Sternritters, even earning the title of Yhwach’s successor. This unexpected turn of events sparks controversy and disbelief among those familiar with him. Understandably, the abrupt ascendancy of Uryuu to such a pivotal position raises eyebrows and evokes mixed reactions.
Addressing Uryuu’s decision to switch allegiances, it becomes evident that he has temporarily switched sides, leaving audiences to ponder his motivations and the possible consequences of his actions. The narrative also offers glimpses into other characters’ developments; notably, Byakuya has made a recovery and reenters the story, albeit with an uncanny sense of incongruity.
Amidst these revelations, the Soul Society’s connections with Ichigo’s classmates come to light, as Kyoraku’s gesture of providing them with soul tickets emphasizes a sense of camaraderie between the two realms.
As the tale unfolds, it’s evident that the brief respite is over; Yhwach and his forces launch a second invasion, ushering in a renewed era of conflict and bloodshed. The opening and ending sequences, while satisfactory in terms of music, truly shine in their visual presentation, captivating the audience’s attention with their captivating imagery.
In summary, the return of Bleach is marked by an intense start, reigniting the plot’s momentum and introducing new twists that promise a compelling continuation of the saga.
