Bleach: Thousand Year Blood War Part 2 Episode 7

It appears that Bleach TYBW Part 2 has been the main focus in recent weeks, as fans have been deprived of new Jujutsu Kaisen episodes. However, Bleach is making quite an impact and it seems that it’s not merely here to entertain us during Jujutsu’s hiatus, but rather, it’s vying for the title of the best anime of summer 2023. Bleach: Thousand Year Blood War Part 2 Episode 6 exemplifies this, as social media erupted with numerous hashtags related to the episode, dominating Twitter.

Bleach Thousand Year Blood War Part 2 Episode 6 Recap

The episode commences with Ichigo departing from the Royal Palace. He receives news that the Seireitei was attacked three hours ago and that he could reach there in half a day. He hurries to the Seireitei, contacting Kisuke Urahara and urging him and the others to withstand the Quincies until his arrival, at which point he would take charge.

The scene shifts to Rukia Kuchiki, parting ways with Renji. She is ambushed by Stein Ritter F, also known as Äs Nödt. Though he originally sought Byakuya, he realizes he could draw him out by killing Rukia, Byakuya’s sister. Thus, the battle ensues.

Äs employs the power of fear. While Rukia wards off his fear-infused attacks, they prove ineffective as fear cannot be blocked by ice. Rukia discloses that his fear-based power is ineffective against her. This is because fear only affects living individuals, and Rukia has lowered her body temperature to the extent that she is considered “dead,” albeit temporarily. She launches her assault against Äs and overpowers him.

Äs appears defeated. Rukia, who has chilled herself to -270 degrees Celsius, gradually adjusts her temperature to avoid sending her body into shock. During this process, Äs rises and deploys his trump card, Tatar Foras. He engulfs Rukia in fear, and just when things seem grim for her, Byakuya arrives to her rescue.

Motivated by her brother, Rukia unleashes her Bankai: Hakka no Togame. She freezes Äs, causing him to disintegrate.
