  • Share

Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War has kicked off the full war between the Soul Reapers and Sternritter forces, and the newest episode of the series has set the stage for Kenpachi Zaraki’s next major fight in the anime! The new series has been a majorly welcome return for fans as the series has brought back the fan favorite Soul Reaper Captains to the anime for a new slate of fights. The episodes have been setting up the first respective fights of the war, but there were still some big names that fans had been more anxious to see fight again after all these years.

Kenpachi had been seen briefly in the first few episodes of the series thus far, but things have been changed with the newest episode as he fully returns to the center of the action. Apparently quickly disposing of many of the Sternritters that the other Captains had been struggling against, Kenpachi is already gearing up for his next major fight. It seems like his first battle of the arc is against the major foe leading the Sternritter overall, Ywhach, as seen in the newest episode:

Episode 5 of Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War continues some of the fights we had seen set up in the previous episodes, but also gives fans a look at more of the unfolding battlefields in the rest of Soul Society. One of these updates reveals that Kenpachi has been looking for a strong opponent, and quickly dispatched three of the Sternritter with seemingly tough abilities to deal with. But being Kenpachi, he tore through all three of them with relative ease.

But given that he’s also been unsatisfied with his fights so far, he instantly pins Ywhach as the opponent he wanted to face the most. The last thing we get to see of him is his attacking the Sterrnritter leader who in turn blocks Kenpachi’s attack with his arm. It’s setting up Kenpachi for some highly anticipated action as the anime continues, so now is the time to catch the new anime as it streams with Hulu.
