The first significant battle between the Soul Reapers and the Quincies in Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War has reached its conclusion, and the most recent episode of the series revealed one of Ichigo Kurosaki’s startling secret powers.

The anime‘s first few episode were rife with slaughter as the Soul Reapers discovered just how inadequate they were in comparison to the formidable Sternritter squad. The latest episode tested the possibility that Ichigo might be able to turn the tide if he arrived at the battleground in time.

The series’ main protagonist Ichigo Kurosaki was finally able to escape Quilge Opie’s trap and return to the Soul Society following him being imprisoned in the previous episodes there between Hueco Mundo and the Soul Society. Soon after, Ichigo starts a huge battle against the Sternritter Yhwach, and as a result of his overwhelming strength, he ends up discovering an unexpected new power. At the time he’s nearly defeated and stabbed in the neck by Yhwach, it’s uncovered that he’s also able to use the Blut Vene technique the Quincies have been using.

Ichigo battles Yhwach in Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War Episode 7, as the Sternritter leader is currently much more difficult for Ichigo to deal with. After exerting so much energy to escape Opie’s trap, Ichigo is bloodied and exhausted, but it soon becomes clear that this ultimately saved him from certain death. When Yhwach discovers that Ichigo’s able to instinctively activate the Quincies’ Blut Vene technique within his body, he offers a theory.

He adds that once Ichigo managed to escape from Opie’s jail trap, the utilized Spiritual Pressure of his started to mix with Opie’s Spiritual Pressure, which entered Ichigo’s body and woke up a dormant power. It appears to be hinting that Ichigo is also a Quincy, which has raised a huge wonder regarding the direction the anime will be headed since this new power has appeared.
