Bleach Thousand Year Blood War Episode 2 Recap
The second episode titled ‘Foundation Stones’, starts where the first episode ended, that is with Ludaas Freigen on the ground with his mutilated hand. We cut to Ichigo’s house where the others wait for Ichigo to return after battling Ebern. Upon his return, Ryonosuke receives a call from soul society informing her and Shino about the attack on soul society and asking them to attend the funeral for Division 1 Vice Captain Choujiro Sasakibe who has been killed by 7 unknown assailants.
Ichigo proceeds to patrol the town when suddenly Nelliel crashes into him in her child form and asks him to help her save Hueco Mundo. We then cut back to Ywach who converses with Ludaas who is on his knees unable to stand up and then proceeds to kill him. Just after killing him, Ywach praises Ebern for stalling Ichigo and kills him too.
The other members of the Vanderweich show concern for the killing of arrancars who are valuable assets. To this Ywach replies by forming stairs out of reishi, climbing them, and uncovering Hallibel captured and in chains.
Next Pesche falls from the sky as well and they go to Ichigo’s house. Then we cut to soul society where Sasakibe’s funeral is taking place. At Ichigo’s place, Pesche tells the gang how Hallibel was defeated and captured by Ywach and how their friend Dondachakka was captured too. The gang decides to help them by going to Hueco Mundo but Uryu refuses since Quincy cannot help hollows. Just then time Kisuke Urahara appears and helps them travel to Hueco Mundo.
When the gang arrives there they look around and find that everyone in the area has been killed. Then we again cut to Hueco Mundo where the Iacto Arme of Hueco Mundo is assessing the strongest warriors. Here we get introduced to the first of the Sternritters, Sternritter J, Quilge Opie.
Hallibel’s three lieutenants known as the Tres Bestia appear to fight the commander of the Iacto Arme who is Sternritter J. He easily overpowers them.
