New ★5 Character Previews

Yhwach (Thousand-Year Blood War The End ver.)

Yhwach is the emperor of the Wandenreich, father to all Quincies, and invader of the Soul Society. He has the ability to look into the future, as well as powers of transformation and soul distribution. He and Genryusai have a history of hostility that dates back a thousand years.



“I shall take that hope that you cling to so dearly and crush it with my own two hands.”


Shigekuni Genryusai Yamamoto (Thousand-Year Blood War The Fire ver.)

Since no one able to best him has appeared, Genryusai has been the Head Captain of the 13 Court Guard Squads for over a thousand years. He has unfinished business with Yhwach from the war between the Quincies and the Soul Reapers that began a thousand years prior. 


“The blow that I failed to deliver a thousand years ago will find its mark today.”


Sosuke Aizen (Thousand-Year Blood War The Agony ver.)

Aizen was the captain of Squad 5 until he was found guilty of high treason and imprisoned in the Muken. Since the extent of his Spiritual Pressure is unknown, Yhwach regards him as a special threat and dangerous force to be reckoned with.



“You could crush them in one breath of your Spiritual Pressure.”
