Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War Episode 14 “The Last 9 Days” Recap
Ichibe Hyosube, the chief of the Zero Division, informs Ichigo about how one thousand years of peace have weakened the Soul Reapers. He expresses concern about Wandereich’s potential attack plans and emphasizes the necessity of gathering their forces for another assault against the Wandereich. When Ichigo begins walking away without clarifying his intentions, Ichibe firmly advises him against fighting Yhwach and emphasizes its urgency. Undeterred, Ichigo informs him of his intention to go to Soul Society instead.
Meanwhile, Yhwach gathers the Sternritters and makes two shocking announcements. Uryu Ishida surprises everyone by publicly declaring his allegiance to Wandenreich. However, what truly surprises everyone is when Yhwach announces Ishida as his successor, something Uryu had only recently joined. Even so, many Sternritters appear discontented at being overlooked as the successor. Their silence in front of Yhwach shows their discontent over this choice despite remaining silent during these announcements from their leader, Yhwach.
Later on, when Yhwach bestows his blood upon Ishida as a symbol of his role as the successor, he is asked about why. Yhwach expresses disbelief that Ishida failed to understand and refers back to being the last remaining Quincy due to the Auswahlen. Although he understands why Ishida wasn’t chosen, he doesn’t explain himself further and informs Uryu that drinking his blood will activate his powers.
Ichibe transports Ichigo to an undisclosed area within the Soul King’s Palace, where he is supposedly meant to emerge with enhanced abilities. Division Zero’s leader believes this test is meant to assess if Ichigo possesses the qualities to defeat Soul Reapers using unconventional means. However, Shunsui Kouraku remains suspicious of Ichibe’s motivations. He travels back to the human world to meet Ichigo’s friends before disclosing that there’s a one-in-ten thousand chance that if Ichigo returns with any destructive powers, they might never be able to return to the human world again.

Residents in Seireitei witness a disturbing scene as an enormous, menacing bubble slowly envelops their town. Chaos and devastation rapidly spread within minutes as Yhwach and his troops returned. Sensors detect abnormal readings when the bubble surrounds Seireitei, erasing it from sight. Uryu communicates with Yhwach to ascertain their familiarity with Kaiser Gesang, signalling its arrival.
Ishida has extensive knowledge about Kaiser Gesang. According to legend, it entails awakening after 900 years, recovering intelligence after 90 years, and regaining physical power after 9. However, according to Yhwach, Uryu needs clarification about this part of the song as only nine days remain for the world. Yhwach urges Haschwalth and Uryu to join their march forward while the Sternritters continue their relentless advance.
