Bleach Reveals Bleak Update on Hueco Mundo's Status

Bleach is now back in action with the Thousand-Year Blood War arc of the anime, and the newest episode of the series has offered a terrible update for how Hueco Mundo has been shaping up since Ichigo Kurosaki and the others were there! The first episode of the new revival anime for the franchise introduced a terrifying new enemy that made their move on the Soul Society. Ichigo was able to fight off the first threat that came to his doorstep, but it was soon revealed to be a part of a much grander invasion that has really only begun.

Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War Episode 2 picks up from all of the chaos left in the wake from the first episode, and it's soon revealed that while Soul Society was hit by an invasion, Hueco Mundo was attacked in a much worse way. The new enemies now setting their sights on everything have made their move on each spiritual realm, and Hueco Mundo has been completely overthrown by this new enemy as Ichigo and the others discover the bloody aftermath from their invasion on the territory.

Episode 2 of the series sees Ichigo reunite with Nelliel Tu Odelschwanck and Pesche as they head to the human realm to seek Ichigo's help. They explain that a powerful enemy had arrived in Hueco Mundo and instantly defeated some of the top Arrancars left following Aizen's reign such as the former third Espada, Tier Harribel. Deciding to help them regardless of the fact that they were his enemies not long before, Ichigo, Orihime, Chad, and Urahara then accompany Nel and Pesche to find that Hueco Mundo was been completely taken over. 

Not only are there a mass of Hollow and Arrancar bodies littering the area thanks to this new enemy's mysterious power, it's revealed that this group actually wants to use the strongest of the Arrancars as part of vanguard for their army in another planned invasion. Despite how much trouble Ichigo and the others had in this region before, the new enemy's weapons are so powerful and cutting that the Arrancars really couldn't fight back in time. 

Now it's just a matter of seeing whether or not Ichigo can do so as well! How are you liking Bleach's return to anime so far? Curious to see what's next for Hueco Mundo?
