Previous Chapter Recap!
‘Born In the Dark’ was the title of Bleach Season 17 Episode 7. The episode began with an anime-only flashback to the first Gotei 13. The plot then moved on to the events of episode 6. A blow from Yhwach struck Yamamoto. Thus, he was able to kill Yamamoto by chopping him in half. Over his dead body, Yhwach expressed his displeasure with how the Gotei 13 had weakened. He then ordered Jugram to kill every member of Sternitter. Meanwhile, despite the chaos, Ichigo managed to escape from the prison. Ichigo then met Byakuya, who was dying. He passed on his last words to Ichigo. Then came Angry Ichigo to Soul Society. He finally met Yhwach in person. Sadly, Ichigo was not strong enough to win.
Yhwach easily overpowered him. But it seemed Ichigo had some trick up his sleeve. Ichigo fought back with a technique known as Blut Vene. And so, Ywhach was taken aback by this. It was a Quincy technique! It happened because Ichigo pushed himself too hard in jail. This led him to unlock his spiritual memories. Yhwach decided to withdraw. And he informed Ichigo to meet him at Wandenreich. However, Ichigo kept striking. Yhwach walked away, referring to him as his son.
