there Soul Society survived the invasion of Wandenreich, but only thanks to the hand of an old enemy. Soon Yhwach's army will return to attack, but one wonders how the Shinigami can resist after Commander Yamamoto is dead and the Gotei 13's strongest warriors have been eliminated.

In Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War 1x08, Ichigo faces the consequences of the brutal battle against the Star Knights. The deputy Shinigami is told that fortunately, Rukia, Renji, Byakuya, and Zaraki are alive, although the latter two are unlikely to return to their former states. On the other hand, unfortunately Zanpakuto destroyed by Haschwalth can no longer be repaired in some way.

While the Gotei 13 tries to reorganize the few survivors, the Seireitei welcomes new guests. In Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War 1x08 comes the Zero Division, the Royal Guard in charge of defending the King of Spirits personally. Possessing strength greater than the entire Gotei 13, these five warriors take Ichigo, Rukia, Renji, and Byakuya and return to the Royal Palace.

In the opening images of Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War 1x09, we see Renji awake again, ready to argue with Ichigo, and a close-up of Tenjiro Kirinji and Kirio Hikifune from the Zero Division. The two will be the first to welcome Bleach's popular protagonists to the Royal Palace.
