Just a day after Tite Kubo, the creator of Bleach, released a full-fledged artwork of the original Soul Reaper Captains, some more pieces of information have blessed the community following the events of the Thousand-Year Blood War arc.
Thanks to the info posted by anime insider Shonenleaks, fans now have more clarity on the origins of each captain from when Genryusai Shigekuni Yamamoto first founded the 13 Court Guard Squads. After all, Bleach fans underwent a decade-long wait to see all Gotei-13 members adapted into anime from the final arc of Tite Kubo’s original manga.
With the recent episode, it is apparent that the anime adaptation is going all in with the final arc’s manga version of the story that Kubo had been ruminating on for quite a while now. The info on the Original Gotei-13 sheds light on the early days of Genryusai Shigekuni Yamamoto’s shinigami organization as “it was more brutal than the current Court 13 Corps,” with each captain in the roster having their own origin story while some were “great sinners.”
Take a look at how Gotei, who were a group of thugs, showed no involvement in protecting the people, although they possessed great combat power.
Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War arc is now airing, as it recently revealed that Genryūsai Shigekuni Yamamoto and Retsu Unohana, who still served in the present-day ranks, were the members of the original Gotei-13. The remaining eleven captains, along with the current Zero Division failed to survive and didn’t make it to Bleach’s new era.
