It is starting to make much more sense now, the relationship between Jugram and Yhwach and the understanding the two share. It may be due to the uniqueness of Jugram that he found himself unable to fully connect with another person and as a result always found himself out-of-place despite being with a friend. However, the moment Yhwach appeared and expressed an understanding of what Jugram was going through and felt, Jugram found himself instantly drawn to that understanding and connection. Through the similarity of the uniqueness they share, they have come to understand each other, and in particular for Jugram, he has found a place to exist – next to Yhwach.

Bleach Chapter 632 – Yhwach And Jugram
What a peculiar development, Jugram is the “other half” of Yhwach? What exactly is Yhwach and why does his very existence deviant from the “norm” everybody else embody? How did Yhwach go about creating a whole new branch of humanity and what are the origins of Yhwach? The very fact that Yhwach is such a unique creation leaves me incredibly curious. I get that Yhwach is the son of the Soul King, but what exactly is the Soul King? The Shinigami needed the Soul King’s existence to stabilize the dimensions from crumbling, but why in the first place did they need such an existence? Surely before the Soul King came into existence, the worlds held together fine, so what drove the Shinigami to requiring an entity like the Soul King to be the part which holds the worlds together?
Bleach Chapter 631 – The Origins Of The Sternritter
How peculiar, so Yhwach knew about Soul Society way back in the past, I wonder how exactly he came to know about it? Could it be possible that some of the souls which fragments of his own soul were attached to knew about Soul Society and as a result when those fragments of his soul returned to him, Yhwach gained the knowledge along with the aspects of that person? Well whatever the case, Yhwach has been targeting Soul Society since he was 200 years old. As for Bazz-B it seems Jugram and him came to mutual understanding that in order to kill Yhwach, they would have to earn his trust, well at least that is what Bazz-B believed. There is still something unknown about Jugram that I doubt even Bazz-B knew about, but I wonder what exactly it is =/.
Bleach Chapter 630 – Jugram and Bazz-B
I have been wondering about Jugram for a while now and why he felt akin to Yhwach’s shadow. I guess that feeling held more truth to it than I had initially expected; once Yhwach “sleeps” (when night falls), Yhwach and Jugram’s power switches. The dynamics between Jugram and Yhwach’s power and relation does explain why Jugram is so committed to Yhwach and why Jugram also has such a large role in realising Yhwach’s goals. Bazz-B understands this and apparently he too shares a past with Jugram, someone he considers or at least considered a friend. With Bazz-B and Jugram’s flashback beginning at the end of the chapter, one has to wonder about the fate of the two after their battle and whether one of them will have to end the other.
Bleach Chapter 629 – Wahrwelt
Haschwalth’s dedication to Yhwach is almost admirable if not totally suspicious and extreme for how passionate he is about everything Yhwach does. I mean, Yhwach could raise a finger and Haschwalth would be there commenting on how glorious Yhwach beckoned the air to move around his finger. All that preaching about the birth of “New World” originating from their redesigned castle only adds to the crazy I am feeling from the Sternritter, well the one’s left in Yhwach’s employ. Incredibly glad Grimmjow kick-started the counter-attack and refused waiting any longer to engage the Sternritter. Will be interesting to how the few Sternritter are dealt with by the many protagonist in this arc.
Bleach Chapter 626 – The Reborn King
With Juhabach absorbing the Soul King, it seems he has inherited the purpose the Soul King’s existence embodied, which is serving as the being holding the universes in balance. With his newly attained power, Juhabach seeks to remake the world to his vision and desires, a world devoid of the reality the current one operates by. The obvious effect of Juhabach inheriting the Soul King’s power is the consequence that will result when he is defeated, that being the collapse of the balance of the universes once a being tying them all together is removed. It seems likely that with the defeat of Juhabach, a new character will become the Soul King (Ichigo).
Bleach Chapter 623 – The Gate To The Soul King Palace
Looks like Aizen won’t be bringing down the Soul King’s Palace…awwwwwww! I prepared myself for some fireworks but it looks like I will have to settle for Aizen chilling back in his chair some more, which is fine with me, as long as Kubo-sensei is holding Aizen (and his chair) back for something even more spectacular. The remaining Sternritter left in Soul Society appearing to challenge the Gotei 13 was surprising but Bazz-B quickly remedied that confusion and got rid of the growing annoyance called Nanana Najahkoop…what a name. Good work Bazz-B and glad to see you are utilising your free will smartly, Juhabach never once had any of his followers interest in mind.
Bleach Chapter 621 – The Enemy Of The Soul King
Did I just hear Jugram right that the enemy of the Soul King are the Shinigami? I was under the impression that it was the Quincy who hated the Soul King and reactionary acted to dispose of his existence – the “Quincy” blood in Ichigo. I can understand why the Soul King would hate the Shinigami if they were the ones who sealed him in order to act as the existence to balance the world’s, but why exactly would the Soul King not hate the Quincy for wanting to kill him? Did the Quincy originate from the “Soul King” or what? And if so, why would they in the first place want to kill him instead of free him? So much confusion…
Bleach Chapter 610 – The Thousand Year Prayer
How interesting, so at the exact moment Yhwach was about to be defeated, the thousand-year wait he had to endure for his pulse, intellect and power to return reached its completion allowing Yhwach to nullify the what would have been finishing blow Ichibei had served to him. If Yhwach had already regained his power earlier in the fight why exactly didn’t he unleash it and crush Ichibei opposed to painfully dragging out a fight that had its conclusion already determined from the beginning? With Yhwach’s eyes “opened”, Ichibei stood no chance…which is what all the readers knew before the fight even began.
Bleach Chapter 609 – The Almighty
So he finally reveals his true self, the man capable of bleaching out the blackest black. I was waiting for this all the while wondering how exactly Yhwach will go about turning around the hopeless situation he found himself in against Ichibei. Getting overwhelmed by Ichibei was just a step in overcoming him, thanks to the ability Yhwach has in managing to understand the workings of any powers while perceiving it or so Haschwalth says. Yhwach was able to nullify Ichibei’s power on himself at the end and instantly turn the tables on the situation. I’m sure Ichibei spilling the beans regarding his abilities helped as well but I suppose even if Ichibei omitted expressing any words to Yhwach and focused solely on crushing him, the result would have still been same. Such a shame that Ichibei was forced to face such an opponent, one not able to be defeated until the main character is ready.
