The fans were left hanging by Bleach TYBW Episode 7 last week. As Yamamoto’s blood started to thin under the downpour, Yhwach slashed his body and trod on his head. Yamamoto’s lower body remained upright while his upper half fell to the ground, which is almost poetic.

However, Yhwach’s focus was more on the cut-in-half lying beneath him. It will be intriguing to observe how he connects the history of long ago with the present. Are there any similarities between the two that fans should be aware of? All the solutions are in Bleach Season 17.

However, it appears that the release date will be postponed somewhat. Do not worry. We have all the information you require regarding the plot and release date for Bleach TYBW Episode 8. The studio is, thankfully, making up for the delay. The day when both episodes 8 and 9 are released is the same.

The subsequent ones won’t experience their cascading effects. On the other hand, perhaps Ichigo will benefit from the respite. He has to accept his past and move on. I’m hoping this vacation will help him get back on track. He doesn’t have much time to rest though! The Soul Society is a mess. And Ichigo needs to get ready for the subsequent battle. Learn more by continuing to read!

Bleach Season 17 Episode 8: What Will Happen Next?

The Shooting Star Project- Zero Mix is the name of the eighth episode of Bleach Season 17. The aftermath of the conflict will be covered in the upcoming episode. Chapters 511 to 514 of the manga were covered in Episode 7.

Chapter 515 is therefore expected to open Episode 8. The arrival of Squad Zero will be examined in the following mission. The Soul Society and its King are their only concerns. The Soul Reapers will reassemble and repair their wounds when Quincy flees.

Ichigo has acknowledged that his present stats are insufficient to defend Soul Society. He has been entrusted by Byakuya to take care of the other Soul Reapers. Ichigo will need to work out more. Maybe this is the time for him to awaken his buried Quincy abilities. Ichigo is currently in denial mode.

Quincy was always his enemy in his eyes. He has been torn apart, nevertheless, after learning that he shares their blood. Will Ichigo recognize him as such? The following one will have all the solutions! Episode 8 will make up for Episode 7’s lack of action-packed scenes with storyboarding, emotional impact, and poignant character interactions.

A Quick Recap!

“Born In The Dark” was the name of the seventh episode of Bleach Season 17. The scene opened with a brief view of the original conflict between Quincy and Soul Society. It marked the start of the Millennium Blood War. And Yhwach was murdered by Sasakibe.

The conflict of Episode 6 was the turning point in the story. Yamamoto was cut in half by Yhwach. The sound occasionally subsided as the rain appeared to be slowing down. An almost tranquil feeling of time was produced by this effect. But it displayed a horribly gloomy scene.

Then Yhwach gave the command to kill every last Soul Reaper with his Quincy foot soldiers. Ichigo, meantime, eventually succeeded in escaping from prison. Byakuya, who was on the verge of death, was met by him right away. He received confirmation from Ichigo that Renji and Rukia were still alive.

Byakuya uttered his last words to Ichigo before he was unable to breathe any longer. Finally, he let go of the sword and it vanished. Furious, Ichigo dashed off before finally approaching Yhwach to engage in combat. Sadly, he was up against overwhelming odds. The battle was in Yhwach’s favor.

He landed on Ichigo and promptly stabbed him in the neck. But Ichigo was able to withstand this direct hit. Yhwach made the decision to lower his weapon. He noticed that Ichigo was utilizing the Blood Vein Quincy method. He reasoned that while incarcerated, Ichigo might have been able to reawaken his mystical memories. When Yhwach saw this, he was astounded. He made the choice to withdraw for the time being and promised to meet Ichigo soon. As the episode came to a close, Ichigo referred to him as his son, born in the dark.
