The Almighty Yhwach! Ichibei Shocked – Bleach 609

Bleach 609 reveals Yhwach’s “A” to be Zenchizennou or All-Knowing/Almighty, he evades Ichibei’s near death attack to prove that Yhwach is all-knowing. Ichibei delivers his Shinuchi/Bankai to be Shirafude Ichimonji to crush the body of Yhwach, however he uses his powers to come back.

Bleach 609 begins as Yhwach faces Ichibei’s attack, he’s covered completely with the blackness from Ichibei, he begins to talk about how he will give him a new name. Ichibei releases his Shinuchi (or True Hit) mentioning his Shirafude Ichimonji (or White Brush).

Ichibei mentions that the recent terminology for Shinuchi would be Bankai, he releases it, then mentioning that before there were any kind of Bankai’s, the first evolved Zanpakuto had evolved. His blade had began, it gave the ability to give a new name to everything that had been blackened out by Ichimonji.

While he mentions this he draws the name Kuroari (or Black Ants) for Yhwach to have as his name. He was formally named to be Yhwach, not Kuroari. Thus then mentions that his current abilities will reflect those that are equivalent to the ants crawling on the ground.

Yhwach mentions that he’s gone too far. Ichibei says that this is as far as he will be going. This is how far behind his abilities have gotten, he will carry the lives of all the Shinigami he’s taken and so it’s as far as his life will go.

He stomps Yhwach like an ant to which it breaks the bridge he was standing on. Haschwalth looks back as his King falls down, then calls him the great king of the insects, he says his farewell then crushes him once more.

Yhwach keeps falling as he mentions that he did not expect that he could have seen this far ahead, with his eyes in their closed state. He begins to change and somehow appears behind Ichibei, as Ichibei turns around he’s stabbed with a weapon from Yhwach to which he quickly breaks after spilling a little blood.

Ichibei notices that the name he gave Yhwach begins to disappear, as Ichibei tries to battle back, Haschwalth begins to explains that the power of Yhwach allows him to understand all things he sees from any given perspective, as such it makes him impossible to best. Haschwalth reveals the “A” of Yhwach stands for The Almighty! Depending on translations, it could also mean All-Knowing. Bleach 609 ends here.

A fantastic chapter, Yhwach and Ichibei are going crazy battling each other from point to point. Now seems like the time that Yhwach will battle back and show Ichibei what he’s made off. We could see some fantastic battles next, can’t wait for next week’s Bleach 610 when the battle continues on.

      Oh lord I hope not. Damn Yhwach’s Schrift The Almighty is amazing. I can’t believe he can see the power of his enemies and just negate them like that. I think the next chapter will show the other Royal Guard vs Elite Guard.

        Even though we haven’t seen Aizen’s Bankai, it would probably match Ichibei’s. We need Aizen back. Don’t know why Ichigo is taking so long to reach the Palace. Ichigo is literally the last wall between Yhwach and the Soul King. Epic

          I wouldn’t say that. But if Aizen does fight Yhwach, he will lose easily the fact that Yhwach can do this, Aizen doesn’t stand a chance against him.

            Yeah agreed, Aizen isn’t as strong as you think, it was all the Hogyoku that gave him that power. Aizen is much more strong when it comes to mind games, he can play them and win. If he can get his hands on it again he could easily go against Yhwach and match him, winner would differ if he doesn’t make the same mistakes again.

              when it comes to mind games ya Aizen mind fs you, but I doubt that would work on Yhwach. I mean sure his Shikai can control all five of you senses, but Yhwach’s Schrift can just restore his senses back to normal, so the illusions wouldn’t work. Or he can use Zankt Altar and steal Aizen’s Shikai powers and use it against him cause when it comes to Reiyoku, Yhwach has way more than Aizen. And now we see The Almighty can allow Yhwach to see Aizens powers and completely negate them. So it any direction, I don’t see Aizen beating Yhwach.

              It wasn’t just the Hogyoku that made Aizen strong, he had his Zanpaktou and just Raw power. Even without the Hogyoku he would’ve been able to see defeat the Gotei 13 easily. Do you guys know when Ichigo is going to reach the Palace and WHEN IS THE BLEACH ANIME GOING TO AIR AGAIN!!! loll

                I wouldn’t say that. Aizen’s own raw power would be able to defeat Byakuya, Toshiro, Sui-Feng, Sajin, Kensei, Rojuro, Mayuri, Mashiro, Love, Hachi, Hiyori, and Lisa. But to defeat Shinji? Maybe.

                But Shunsui and Jushiro? Both of them hell no. Maybe one of them but again that’s a big if. And against Zaraki? His Zanpakuto Nozorashi can cut through anything. If Nozorashi can cut through space, and if it can do that, Nozorashi can cut the illusions created by Aizen’s Shikai. So i don’t see him beating Zaraki with just Shikai, but Bankai, probably.

                And dude you know Aizen said himself he is no match for Yamamoto. He cannot defeat him. And for Unohana? During the Soul Society Arc, he didn’t even want to fight her even with Gin’s help. She is the first Kenpachi and her power rivaled that of Yamamoto. She is probably a little stronger than him. So I don’t see Aizen defeating Unohana either. So without the Hokyokyu, Aizen can’t do anything so threatening.

                  Understand kind of where your coming from. I was talking in the soul society and arranger arc, but it wouldn’t matter even if it was the current arc. Aizen didn’t say he was no match for Yammaoto (strongest in Gotei 13). Before he evolved to the 2nd form while fighting Urahara he stated he had no equal in soul society and is evolving even further. Unohana and different Kenpachis don’t equal Yammaoto. Aizen was never scared of Unohana when she found out, he needed to leave for Rukia. Unohanna’s bankai is similar to Aizen’s shikai. Zaraki’s shikai can’t cut Aizen if he’s not there, and Aizen’s Zapaukto would stop it regardless. One on one only Ichigo in his Final Getsugu stage and Yhwach would match him. Aizen is capable of a lot with or without the Hogoukyu. Huge addition once he comes back to manga. Good discussion.

                  Well the part with Aizen and the Hokyokyu is different I guess. I don’t know how that would turn out and I only talk about Aizen and his true powers. First of all, Unohana’s Bankai is not like Aizen’s Shikai. Her Zanpakuto Minazuki, is a Kido Type not an illusion type like Aizen’s. That chapter showing her and Zaraki’s flesh melting away was a metaphor that Kubo was telling us Zaraki’s old self was stripping away, and his chains are broken, and that he finally knows what true fighting is like, and his full power. Also Unohana said she is stronger than everyone else in the Soul Society, Kenpachi is given to the the strongest and I hold her own words more truthful than Aizen’s. True he wasn’t scared of her, but I doubt he can defeat her or Yamamoto.

                  He did say he was no match for his Zanpakuto, and Yamamoto said no Shinigami in the last 1000 years was born stronger than him, which includes Aizen. Also I wasn’t saying Zaraki was gonna hit Aizen, Nozorashi can cut through anything. When Nozorashi cut through space, it’s not so farfetched that Nozorashi can cut through the illusions created by Aizen’s Shikai. And when Nozorashi cuts through the Illusions, the illusion shatters and Aizen’s Zanpakuto cannot work on Zaraki anymore. Cause even if he created a fake self, Nozorashi will cut through and Zaraki will know it’s a fake and catch Aizen trying to sneak attack him like he always does.

                  Plus Aizen is very powerful, but he did say before he “evolved” that Kisuke was an equal to himself and his intelligent is greater than his. Also the Soul Society does not include the Royal Guard. I strongly believe they are all stronger than Aizen. I can only see him as strong as Tenjiro or Kirio, but still a little weaker, and Oetsu, Shutara, and Ichibei are still stronger. I do want him back, but only for him to die, cause his presence in the series is irrelevant in my opinion. I believe Yhwach will kill him. Sense he is much stronger, a beer military leader, and overall a way better fighter in terms of damage and such unpredictable actions. So when it comes to fighting average or higher level fighters, he is a beast, but now we have so many powerful fighters than are mostly potentially stronger than him like Yhwach’s Elite Guard. Especially Pernida, i consider her the strongest of the Elite Guard. But that is my opinion on Aizen’s level of power. And i am expecting his Bankai to be powerful and haxed as fuck, but not so much compared to what these other powerful characters have, especially Yhwach.

        That was definitely epic, although I found it hard and didn’t quite get what happened. He got trashed, because he saw through Ichibei’s attack he was able to some how stop it? That seems like OP to me, he can’t be beaten.

          I think his Schrift can “see” though and understand an enemies abilities and Yhwach can negate them though his knowledge. I think he used the blue flame offensive spell to bring himself back to Ichibei than stab him with his Spirit Weapon.

    I guess that’s why Yhwach’s name means god, and squad zero is shit out of luck and not even ichibel who is the source of all darkness and leader of all shinigami can begin to stop Yhwach or understand how he’s is beating them, Aizen is probably jealous as hell that he couldn’t become this successful even with the time of planning he had, truly Yhwach is the best that bleach has to offer in a villain

    If anything I do belive that yhwach has more powers up his sleeve than we have seen or been told can’t wait to see next weeks chapter…there’s no weakness in the schrift “A” because if quincies stop fighting for him he can kill them all and give his blood to new and loyal quincies just the same way he made As nodt a quincy

    1. Nick Dunn

      As Nodt was always a Quincy. All he did was give him and the other Sternritter a piece of his soul so they can sue their abilities. He can’t make Quincy. That’s not how it works. Kubo explained what happens when a normal human or a weak Quincy takes a piece of his soul, they die quickly cause they cannot handle it. You need to have large amounts of Reiyoku to take a piece of his soul. Which Is All The Sternritter. They are all strong enough to handle the new soul. Before becoming Sternritter, all the Sternritter Were Just Normal Quincy like Uryu, Masaki, Ryuken, and Katagiri. They live like normal humans. But When A gets a piece of his soul, not only do they gain more power, but they live much longer because of it. So yes the only weakness Yhwach’s Schrift The Almighty has is that if all the Quincy stop fighting, he himself will revert back to his weaken state.

    Ichibei will be defeated in bleach chapter 611 which is 100 chapters after yamamoto’s death. Yamamoto died in bleach chapter 511! I’ve been saying that for 4 weeks now.

      Dude I think your right man. I saw another Bleach reviewer named Charles anime world. He made such an amazing point. Go back to Chapter 605 when the fight between Yhwach and Ichibei began, Yhwach said to Ichibei when he created the boundary with Ichimonji, “I will have you killed in three steps less, Ichibei Hyosube. ” So his Schrift The Almighty can allow Yhwach to see and know all events, he will kill Ichibei. God own I’m sad! :/

      Well that is true Ichigo has an advantage cause he is a hybrid of everything spiritual race, but The Almighty is not limited to just pure species individuals. Remember when he defeated Harribel? Qulige Opie said she was so powerless against him. And she is an Arrancar, which in fact are Shinigami-Hollow hybrids. But yes I think the fact that Ichigo is the only one of his find gives him a chance. But I still believe he needs at least one other individual to help him. Like Uryu, or Orihime, or both.

    ? Y’all know what I’m having a really really hard time believing that Yhwach carves a letter into a being. I really think the person was already born with that ability being present through personality and drive itself but I do believe by them drinking his blood it brought that trait that was submerged underneath up. Like I cant picture them just magically gaining super hero type abilities.. That’s just hella dumb. Like I can understand Bazz and Lil ability as one was probably always hot blooded and the other had the will to want to survive through eating. I can understand most of the femritters( I can’t with Gigi and Bambi don’t know why or how they would want those abilities) and most of the other sternritters as well. Most of their abilities go really well with the character. I think something happened between the quincies that probably had something to do with these non Quincy abilities. Maybe most quincies mentally suppressed these abilities over time but Yhwach just forces them out. I do believe the whole “I eat everybody soul”.

      That’s exactly correct man. All Quincy have their own unique Schrift abilities. But alone, they are missing something in their souls, because of that, they cannot use their Schrift abilities, and just be normal Quincy like Masaki and Ryuken. But when Yhwach gives them a piece of his soul, their own individual soul is complete, and they can achieve anything, and can finally use the Schrift ability. Because Yhwach’s Schrift The Almighty can allow him to know all, and when a Quincy gets a piece of his soul, they can have the knowledge and skills to do anything. When Yhwach gets his soul piece back, he does not gain that Quincy’s Schrift abilities, he gains their experience and knowledge and becomes stronger.
