Muzan Kibutsuji's dramatic entrance enraptured Demon Slayer fans.

Bleach fandom did not hold back in criticizing Demon Slayer fandom.

An introduction to Yhwach from Bleach.

The anime fandoms are at it again, butting heads over “who did it better”. This time it is the Bleach fandom pulling the leg of the Demon Slayer fandom. Recently, a sequence from Demon Slayer racked up quite a number of views in a short duration and gained crazy attention from Demon Slayer fans and other fandoms as well, which is how we got into this…situation.

The last episode of Demon Slayer Season 4 gave fans the entertainment that was missing from the rest of the season. Every piece seemed to fall right into place with the last episode. However, one scene enraptured fans more than anything and that was Muzan Kibutsuji’s dramatic entrance. But it seems like one fandom is in disagreement.

Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War Trailer Gave Yhwach His Moment To Shine

The trailer, cast, key visual, and release date for the third and final chapter of Bleach: Thousand Year Blood War have been disclosed by Studio Pierrot and VIZ Media. After the highly anticipated release of part 2, in 2023, fans have been waiting impatiently for further details on part 3. Fans may now breathe a sigh of relief as Studio Pierrot has officially revealed all the pertinent details, getting them ready for the release later this year.

The third-season trailer, along with a key image and the release month, were unveiled by Studio Pierrot at the Bleach: Thousand Year Blood War stage panel at Anime Expo 2024. On October 5, 2024, Bleach Thousand Year Blood War Part 3: The Conflict will be available for streaming. Drawing inspiration from the success of Jujutsu Kaisen and Demon Slayer, Studio Pierrot will be producing the anime under the new sub-studio Pierrot Films, with an aim to produce high-quality animation.

However, it seems Studio Pierrot also took lessons from Demon Slayer on how to dramatically introduce their villain. Not that an iconic character like Yhwach needs any introduction, but the animation was pretty amazing. The 12-second introduction apparently dealt more damage to the Demon Slayer fandom than any character deaths (although it is still pretty traumatic), as fans of Bleach took to X to post their comments.

It seems bloodshed is not only limited to anime but has taken form out of the screen with Bleach fans dissing Demon Slayer and ridiculing (albeit overdramatic) the 3-minute Muzan’s entrance. Although Demon Slayer fans tried to save face with great fervor, the damage has been done. And to be honest, the anime transition for Yhwach was superbly accomplished.

Who Is Yhwach In Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War?

Yhwach goes by several monikers like Your Majesty, Father of the Quincy, Emperor of the Wandenreich, but fans of Bleach don’t have any problem keeping up with him. One of the most terrifying antagonists in the Bleach storyline is Yhwach, who serves as the main antagonist of the Thousand-Year Blood War Arc.

Yhwach challenged Ichigo Kurosaki, the main character, as he advanced toward his objective of establishing a world free from fear of death thanks to his complex past and arsenal of superhuman powers. Yhwach doesn’t require an introduction, but there are a few things about the brash character that viewers might overlook.

Yhwach is a somber and divisive man. He is cruel even if his subordinates treat him with the utmost reverence and he expresses his wish for a world without death. He has no qualms about murdering his subordinates in order to restore his own strength and authority.

The major objective of the villain is to merge the Living World, Hueco Mundo, and Soul Society into one realm in order to create a world devoid of death. In order to continue the cycle of life, death, and rebirth, it was necessary to murder the Soul King, a formidable being that kept the three realms apart.
