Bleach TYBW Episode 16 Spoilers
Bleach TYBW episode 16, titled “The Fundamental Virulence,” is expected to continue where the previous episode left off, with Kisuke Urahara reaching out to Captain Kurotsuchi Mayuri of Squad 12. Urahara has discovered a method to restore the lost Bankai of the Gotei 13 Captains and Lieutenants, and he wants to share this information with them.
According to the preview synopsis, Urahara gained the idea for the Bankai recovery after witnessing Sternritter Quilge Opie’s battle in Hueco Mundo. This likely explains why he remained there while the Shinigami were engaged in combat against the Quincy.
Meanwhile, Sternritter Cang Du intervened in the fight between Bazz-B and Captain Toshiro Hitsugaya of Squad 10. Cang Du has a personal vendetta against the Shinigami and intends to kill Toshiro himself. In the upcoming episode, fans can anticipate seeing Toshiro confront the challenge of facing his own Bankai, Daiguren Hyōrinmaru, as Cang Du attempts to use it against him.
In the meantime, the Shinigami will find themselves facing a difficult situation as they become outnumbered by the Quincy. Following Soifon’s defeat at the hands of BG9, Lieutenant Marechiyo Omaeda of Squad 2 will likely step in to rescue his Captain. However, as seen in the previous episode, Omaeda is considerably weaker than the Sternritter. Nonetheless, he may attempt to engage BG9 in combat to protect his Captain.
Furthermore, the preview images also showcase Squad 5 Captain Shinji Hirako, indicating that he will be involved in a fight as well. In the initial anime trailer, there was a glimpse of Shinji Hirako employing his Bankai. Therefore, there is a slight possibility that viewers may witness him utilizing his Bankai in the upcoming episode.
Recap Of Bleach TYBW episode 15
The main focus of this episode of Bleach TYBW revolved around two key developments. Firstly, it was revealed that the protagonist, Ichigo Kurosaki, is undergoing intense training. Secondly, Kisuke Urahara has seemingly found a way to retrieve the Captains’ Bankai. Alongside these revelations, there were notable battles that took place, particularly involving Toshiro Hitsugaya and Soi Fon.
In the midst of the ongoing conflict between the Soul Reapers and the Quincy, Toshiro Hitsugaya found himself facing off against Bazz-B, one of the Sternritters known for his control over fire. Bazz-B acknowledged that he was Toshiro’s natural adversary, especially considering the Captain’s lack of access to his Bankai. Despite this disadvantage, Toshiro put up a valiant fight, though he ultimately suffered defeat.
Similarly, Captain Soi Fon also encountered a formidable opponent without her Bankai. To compensate for this, she focused on honing her wind manipulation technique, Mukyu Shunko, in order to enhance her speed. This proved advantageous during her confrontation with Sternritter BG9, allowing her to protect her Lieutenant. However, her reliance on this technique ultimately led to her own defeat.
As Bleach TYBW continues to captivate fans, episode 16 brings anticipation and excitement. With the preview offering glimpses into the upcoming episode, fans can expect intense battles, surprising revelations, and further development of the intriguing storyline. This episode promises to keep viewers on the edge of their seats as the epic journey of Bleach TYBW unfolds.
