It was once stated in Bleach manga by Urahara that,

Urahara details that without the Soul King's existence, Soul Society would be rent asunder. The Soul King is the "linchpin" and if that linchpin is lost, then the world would simply crumble away and that is the way of the world. Wiki

But then afterwards,

Yhwach completely absorbs the Soul King.Wiki

How does then the Soul society continues to survive into the future?

  • If I'm not mistaken, Yhwach got the Soul King's power, so the Soul Society doesn't collapse. – JTR Sep 2 '16 at 10:58
  • True. But then he dies. – SeasonalShot Sep 2 '16 at 17:34
  • Oh, I think you asked after Yhwach absorb Soul King's power, not after the death of Yhwach. If so, I don't think it's explained in manga at all if Soul King really "dead" or not. – JTR Sep 3 '16 at 2:53
  • @JTR If Soul King was absorbed by Yhwach and Yhwach died without leaving even a trace of his reiatsu, which means he is completely obliterated, then Soul King too is completely gone. Sadly, we might never know how to answer this question since the manga has ended without addressing this issue. – 絢瀬絵里 Sep 3 '16 at 7:10
  • @AyaseEri yeah, I'm not matching anime, but I hope there's some explanation in anime. There's so many questions about the end of bleach I think – JTR Sep 3 '16 at 9:23
