Bleach's Thousand Year Blood War Arc has finally hit the anime adaptation, with many Shonen fans thinking for years that the day would never arrive. With this arc originally thought to be the grand finale for Ichigo and Soul Society's story, last year saw Tite Kubo return to his masterpiece via a new chapter that took place years in the future. While this new installment hasn't been confirmed for an anime release, the Blood War marches on with a major "cold line" showing how brutal our heroes can be.
In the first episode, Yamamoto is presented with a handful of members of the nefarious branch of the Quincy Family, with the villains wasting little time in making their presence known in quite a bloody fashion. Impaling a high-level assistant to the Soul Society's leader, Yamamoto is unable to deliver a killing blow to the Wadenreich before him as they are able to manipulate the shadows in order to escape any potential harm in leveraging an escape. With it being years since Bleach aired new episodes of its anime adaptation, the Thousand Year Blood War Arc has managed to become a top series for the fall season, despite some serious competition in the likes of Chainsaw Man, My Hero Academia, Mob Psycho 100, and many others.
Twitter User Chibi Reviews took the opportunity to highlight the line that sees Yamamoto stating to the Quincies that he has no need for a security detail as his own power would far outweigh whatever guards were assigned to protect him from any threat, which has proven true throughout Bleach's history:

The Soul Society's leader is set to play a pivotal role in the Thousand Year Blood War Arc, and his eventual battle with the Quincies will change the face of the Shonen series forever. Needless to say, Ichigo and his friends both on Earth and the afterlife are going to have their work cut out for them when it comes to making sure that the Wandenreich are unable to achieve their ultimate goals.
At present, Bleach has yet to confirm whether it will continue with new anime episodes following the Thousand Year Blood War Arc, though considering the popularity of the Shonen's return, we wouldn't be surprised.
