Ep 5 of Bleach: TYBW Teases Epic Yamamoto vs. Yhwach Battle

Waiting 12 years for Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War’s adaptation proved to be worth it as soon as the first episode came out. Without wasting any time, we got right into the action part, and by episode 5, we were deep into Sternritter’s invasion of the Soul Society.

Instead of an all-out battle, the invasion turned into a Shinigami massacre when Quincy mercilessly annihilated them. It became so bad that even most of the Gotei 13 couldn’t do much other than see their comrades die in front of them.

However, Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War anime’s latest episode 5 was a turning point in the battle with the arrival of Yamamoto. The episode’s end revealed that Yhwach and Yamamoto have clashed in the past, making their fight even more thrilling.

With the arrival of Yamamoto, the Shinigami were motivated to get back up and give Quincy a tough time. As the Founder of the Gotei avenged his lieutenant Chojiro Sasakibe, he flew through the battlefield and challenged Yhwach.

Everyone was surprised and horrified, as no one had seen Yamamoto get this angry. The Captain-Commander lands right when Yhwach is about to dispose of Kenpachi and grins at the arrival of Yamamoto.

Yamamoto addresses that it has been a thousand years since the two met and that he has come to kill him for good this time. This also confirms how Yamamoto failed to defeat Yhwach last time, which Mayuri mentioned in episode 3.

Considering how old Yamamoto is, this doesn’t seem surprising. The former captain is known for his unbelievable feats and extraordinary power, so I can imagine him going against Yhwach in the past.


We don’t know where Yhwach was for a thousand years and why he hasn’t been mentioned before. Let’s not forget that Uryu is still unaware of the war and has discovered the truth regarding all of this.

Moreover, Yhwach knows that Yamamoto is bad news and can inflict much damage, so I’m sure he won’t treat the latter lightly. I believe that Yamamoto also knows he can lose his life in this but is ready to go all-out and try to hold off Yhwach until Ichigo arrives.

The fight will stretch out for many episodes considering its importance and how it will heavily impact the war.

Despite the odds of Shinigami winning and how things look, I can guarantee that this fight won’t be any less than enthralling and spectacular.
