Bleach season 17 Story

As the show aired about 9 years ago, we all will have a little trouble connecting the dots. Hence here is a little synopsis on what’s the show about and where did we leave the ending in season 16.

The show is somewhat centered around a 15-year-old boy Ichigo Kurosaki from the small town of Karakura. When Soul Reaper Rukia Kuchiki is unable to address her responsibilities after a tiring war against a hollow she chooses Ichigo to fulfill a part of her work as a substitute.

At the time when offered the opportunity, Ichigo is not up to it but later on, he decided on doing it and realizes that many of his other classmates also have different spiritual abilities.  After getting trained nicely and defeating a few hollows he becomes strong and powerful. Ichigo faces off against major antagonists like Aizen to save a wrongly framed Rukia from a life sentence.

By the end of his fight with Aizen, he tries to use a secret trick to seal Aizen away for good but this ultimately leads him to lose all his powers at the end of season 16.

For the beginning of season 17, we will have the Wandenreich attacking the Shinigami. They lost to Shinigami about 1000 years ago and ever since then been hiding in the shadows building up strength in numbers and abilities to launch another attack. This is what shall form the final arc of their brutal attack and also how hard Ichigo has to train to try and prevent the world and Soul king.
