Bleach Creator Highlights the Grossest Quincy With New Art

Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War creator Tite Kubo shares a sketch of PePe Waccabrada for Episode 23.

Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War has been getting ready for the final episodes of its run this Summer, and the creator behind it all celebrated the debut of one of the grossest Quincy enemies with a special sketch for the newest episode of the anime! Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War Part 2 – The Separation is one step closer towards the real final stretch of fights from the final arc of the series, and fans have started to see even more of the Quincies in action as a result. This includes many players who didn't do much in the first wave of Soul Society invasions in the first cour of episodes last Fall. 

Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War Part 2 – The Separation Episode 23 continues more of the fights against Giselle's zombies as seen in the previous episodes, but much of the Quincies' efforts have since shifted to taking down Byakuya Kuchiki. This results in the Quincy representing the "L" power, PePe Waccabrada (who is a giant diaper wearing "Cupid" who manipulates love with his ability), making his debut in the anime, and Bleach series creator Tite Kubo decided to show this relatively gross Quincy some love with a new sketch. Check it out below:
