After escaping total defeat at the hands of the Wandenreich, Soul Society reorganizes their forces. Spring soon Yhwach will attack again and the Gotei 13 must find a way to resist the second invasion. While Ichigo and Renji are recalled from the Zero Division, Zaraki Kenpachi is embroiled in deadly training.

In episode 374 of Bleach, titled The Drop, Shunsui Kyoraku is appointed as the new Commander General of the Gotei 13. His first command is to do train Zaraki in Zanjutsu by the first kenpachi, who is none other than the commander of the 4th division. In Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War 1x09 we uncover the truth about Unohana, who was known for her brutality and ruthlessness at the time of the original Gotei 13.

While Unohana and Zaraki fight for the title of Kenpachi stronger Ichigo and Renji are healed first and then fed in the Kirinden and Gatonden. However, Kirio Hikifune warns the two Shinigami about the next castle they will visit Oetsu Nimaiyathe most dangerous of the Zero Division.

This is resumed in Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War 1x10 Battle in Muken between Unohana and Kenpachi, who we see badly injured from the thumbnails of the episode. Only one of Gotei 13's two commanders will emerge from the battle alive.

The other thumbnails show Ichigo, Renji, and Kon looking stunned. In fact, Oetsu Nimaiya turns out to be the most peculiar of the Zero Division members known so far. Now that it's in the royal palace Kurosaki will be able to save his Zanpakuto Zangetsu destroyed in the fight against the Star Knights?
