Recently, Bleach Season 17 was announced. It will be the last season and will cover the ‘Thousand Year Blood War Arc’, which is also its end. People are excited because they have been waiting a long time for this season to come out. This new season will be uncensored, meaning that it will show more violence and action scenes than before.

Meanwhile, all the Hollows mysteriously disappeared. That caused the union to break. Nobody knows what happened and how they disappeared.
A new group of soldiers called the Wandenreich attacked the Soul Society. The Wandenreich is a secret group of people who can use magic like Quincy. A thousand years ago, Quincy lost the war against Shinigami. They ran away to the Seireitei in order to hide from humans. The Wandenreich wanted to use Reishi that is only found in the Soul Society. They have been secretly growing their powers for a long time, and they want to attack the Soul Society. They wait for the day when they can find all of the Reishi there.
The Wandenreich is trying to attack. Ichigo must train and find a way to beat them. There might be bad words in the battle, so watch out for that. Will Ichigo save the Soul Society?
