Bleach is currently one of the most popular and trending manga worldwide. Yesterday, its trailer was released, raising more hype about the anime that will air next month. The Thousand Year Blood War arc is the manga’s final arc, which deals with the clash between Soul Reapers and Quincies. Today in this article, we are going to discuss the “Top 20 strongest Quincy in Bleach”.
Quincy is the antithesis of Soul Reaper, and unlike them, they eradicate the hollows completely. They were annihilated by the Soul reapers to maintain the balance between all three worlds.
Just like soul reapers, they can detect spiritual pressure. Sternritters are nothing but a particular group of Quincies who are a part of the Wanderich Army, which Yhwach leads. Their main goal is the eradication of Soul Reapers.
Sternritters were the final antagonist of the series as they completely swept out the soul reapers during their first invasion. They defeated soul reapers by stealing their Bankai.
Thanks to Kisuke Urahara, former captain of Squad 12, the tides have successfully turned out. He deduced that, unlike soul reapers who become Visoreds when contracted with the hollow powers, they are incompatible with Hollow’s power. So, let’s begin.
