Bleach: Millennial Blood War has ended the first major battle between the Soul Reapers and the Quincies, and the final moments of the latest installment of the series gave Ichigo Kurosaki his biggest loss yet. It’s been hard for the Soul Society since the new anime resigned the latter part of Tite Kubo’s original manga, while the Quincies have returned and unleashed a massive invasion. The Soul Reapers were caught off guard after discovering just how strong these new opponents really are, and Ichigo was kept in the middle of many of those surprises.
After being trapped in the space between Hueco Mundo and the Soul Society after his battle with Quilge Opie a few episodes ago, Ichigo was finally able to break free from the trap and make his way to help the others. Seeing the carnage that took place, he is so angry that he directly challenges the Sternritter leader, Yhwach, finding out that he is also not as ready to take on this villain as he initially thought. Although he tried his best, it was enough.
Why did Ichigo lose?
Episode 7 of Bleach: Millennial Blood War sees Ichigo fighting Yhwach directly, and like Yamamoto, finds himself underestimating how strong the enemy leader really is. Without much effort, Yhwach eventually defeats Ichigo. In fact, Ichigo only managed to survive some of the kills thanks to the awakening of a new power that he himself had no idea he could access. But when the fight ends, Ichigo takes a much heavier loss.

As Yhwach prepares to leave the Seireitei as they have reached the limit of how long they can stay in the Soul Society, Ichigo tries to attack the leader one more time, but is soon completely cut off by an attack from Yhwach’s right hand . It is here that, after Ichigo’s Zanpakuto suffered many cuts and cuts during the fight, it finally breaks completely as Ichigo loses all faith in his strength and mind. It is a complete and utter loss.
