It's almost time for Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War Episode 8 and Tite Kubo is hyping up one particular character ahead of its premiere. The mangaka has shared a new illustration of Captain Saito Furoufushi while a key visual shows the First Generation captain of Division Six of the Gotei 13.

The official Tite Kubo Twitter account dropped the Captain Saito illustration and it features the captain posing menacingly. Check it out below.
Who Is Captain Saito in Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War?
Captain Saito is an interesting character since she does not look related to the Kuchiki clan. In addition to that, it seems unlikely that she belongs to a royal clan either. Since the Gotei 13 is a merit-based organization, there is a possibility that Saito belonged to the lower classes but she worked her way into the Gotei 13 through her skills and ruthlessness.
There is still a lot to learn about the Gotei 13 and Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War is already preparing to introduce us to the group. With that in mind, we are excited about the upcoming episodes of the anime.
Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War is certainly on a roll after Episode 6 reached a major milestone. It was previously confirmed that TYBW Episode 6 is one of the highest-rated TV episodes of all time on IMDb, defeating Attack on Titan Season 3 Episode 17.
For now, it's unclear which episodes will end up on the same list but it's only a matter of time before we find out.
