Bleach is now back in action with the anime’s Bloody Thousand Year War arc, and the series’ latest episode offered a terrible update on how Hueco Mundo has shaped itself since Ichigo Kurosaki and the others were there! The first episode of the franchise’s new revival anime introduced a terrifying new enemy who has entered Soul Society. Ichigo was able to fight off the first threat that came to his doorstep, but it was quickly revealed that he was part of a much larger invasion that was just beginning.
Bleach: Bloody Thousand Year War Episode 2 picks up on all the chaos left in the wake of the first episode, and it’s soon revealed that while Soul Society has been hit by an invasion, Hueco Mundo has come under attack in a much worse way. The new enemies now aiming for everything have made their way onto every Spirit Realm, and Hueco Mundo has been completely overthrown by this new enemy as Ichigo and the others discover the bloody consequences of invading the territory.
Episode 2 of the series sees Ichigo reuniting with Nelliel Tu Odelschwanck and Pesche as they head to the human realm to seek Ichigo’s help. They explain that a powerful enemy had arrived in Hueco Mundo and instantly defeated some of the best Arrancars remaining after Aizen’s rule, such as the former third Espada, Tier Harribel. Deciding to help them regardless of them being his enemies not long before, Ichigo, Orihime, Chad, and Urahara then accompany Nel and Pesche to find that Hueco Mundo has been completely taken over.
Not only is there a mass of Hollow and Arrancar bodies littering the area thanks to this new enemy’s mysterious power, but it’s revealed that this group actually wants to use the strongest Arrancar as part of the vanguard. of their army in another planned invasion. Despite the problems Ichigo and the others had in this area before, the new enemy’s weapons are so powerful and sharp that the Arrancars really couldn’t strike back in time.
Now it’s just a matter of whether or not Ichigo can do it too! How are you finding Bleach’s return to the anime so far? Curious to see what’s next for Hueco Mundo?
