Commanders

The War of the Worlds (戦之界, Kaishisen), also called the Great War (衆界, Shūsen), is an ongoing conflict between the Impero Nascosto and the Spiritual World Army. The war technically began with the assassination of 10th Division lieutenant Mashū Getsueikirite, but war wasn't officially declared until Akujin's first invasion of Soul Society shortly thereafter.

Preparations for War

The only side that got significant preparation time was the Impero Nascosto. The build up for war began shortly after Akujin's defeat approximately eighteen years before the war's onset. Akujin founded his empire on the old Order of the Visoreds and then swiftly absorbed the ranks of the Shinigami and the Vandenreich. Afterwards, he prepared at at least three known locations for war, before launching an assassination attempt which eventually lead to the war itself.

The Gotei 13 is currently preparing itself for battle.

Sides

Spiritual World Army

Third Yamakage in Yamagakure

The Supreme War Unit.

The Spiritual World Army is the alliance between the Gotei 13, the Espada, and the humans of MisQ. It is lead by a Supreme Commandant, namely Raian Getsueikirite, and is arranged into many separate divisions dependent on the soldier's skills. It was arranged in the hopes that the combined forces would be enough to bring down Akujin and his Impero Nascosto before they could damage the balance of the worlds. It is based out of the Seireitei in the spiritual realm of Soul Society.

Impero Nascosto

The Impero Nascosto is the mixed-race faction created by Akujin, also known as Tadoku Getsueikirite, whose goal is the destruction of each dimension's "heart of hearts", ultimately merging the worlds into one and allowing Akujin to rule all dimensions and races as its supreme ruler.

It is co-lead by Muramasa Neikan, a Bount with superior technology and scientific understanding. Like the Spiritual World Army, it is broken up into many divisions, by race, to be used to the fullest. The Impero Nascosto has several bases throughout the spiritual worlds, though its main base is located out of a palace in Yāolù.

Strategies

Prelude Battles

Tiro con L'arco Campaign

Taking place before the arc's start, this campaign was not shown, however, it was commented on by Celeste Agostino. Sometime before the start of the arc, Impero Nascosto's Tiro con L'arco launched a campaign that ended in the addition of the World of the Living to its territory. The last battle took place in Rider City between MisQ and the Impero.

Combatants
Location: Rider City, World of the Living
Outcome: Celeste Agostino is killed. Gotei 13 tactical victory.

Shortly after the Human World unknowingly falls to Impero Nascosto, Raian Getsueikirite arrives at the call of Yūga Shikizaki, who informs him Rider City has been attacked. Raian finds the city in ruins and most of MisQ dead. Celeste Agostino arrives and claims credit for the city's ruin. The two battle, with Celeste beginning the battle with his Quincy: Letzt Stil while Raian used his Shikai; Jūjiraiku. Much of the fight goes unseen, but eventually, Celeste's Quincy powers become too much for Raian's Shikai, forcing the captain to go into his Bankai state. He then utilizes Getsuga Tenshō, badly damaging Agostino, followed by a fatal slash to Celeste's chest; killing him.

Regia Marina Invasion of Soul Society

As the Gotei 13, namely the Fifth and Ninth Division, prepare for the investigation of Hueco Mundo, as per the captain's meeting's directives, Akujin and his Regia Marina invade Seireitei against Muramasa Neikan's advisement.

Battle Between Genryūsai Shigekuni Yamamoto and Akujin

Combatants
Location: Seireitei, Soul Society
Outcome: Yamamoto's Bankai is stolen. Akujin escapes. Impero Nascosto tactical victory.

After Akujin reveals himself, he appears suddenly before Yamamoto and throws him into the wall of the First Division's barracks before either Captain Shinji Hirako or Kensei Muguruma can act to save him. After both captains are tied down by his henchman, Akujin then proceeds to follow Yamamoto into the barracks where the two square off for battle. As the fight progresses, both contenders activate their Shikai. Yamamoto notices that Akujin released his Shikai without saying a release command and realizes that he has a Bankai. The ancient captain then tells Akujin he'll need Bankai to defeat him, to which Akujin replies that he'll see. Later on, Yamamoto appears badly damaged and unleashes his Bankai in order to finish Akujin off. The enemy leader then uses his Bankai Ensnaring Device to steal Yamamoto's Bankai, leaving the Captain-Commander defeated. Akujin and his cronies then leave Soul Society victorious, but not before officially declaring war.

Battle Between Tōshirō Hitsugaya and Hirohito Shōwa

Combatants
Location: Seireitei, Soul Society
Outcome: Tōshirō Hitsugaya is gravely injured. Impero Nascosto tactical victory.

After seeing the battle between Yamamoto and Akujin from the distance, Hitsugaya goes to investigate, only to be confronted by the General of Regia Marina. The two clash, and eventually, Hirohito reveals to Hitsugaya his name. Hitsugaya then assumes that he is the Hirohito Shōwa, the first Kenpachi and the second user of Bankai, next to Yamamoto himself. Hitsugaya releases his Shikai, but Hirohito easily dismantles the attack, swatting it away. Hitsugaya is astounded at the level of power his opponent has, being able to swat away a captain's Shikai. Hirohito then releases his reiatsu and activates his own Shikai as a "reward" for Hitsugaya bravery. Hitsugaya is left completely defenseless as Hirohito cuts him down.
