A Japanese anime television program by the name Bleach is based on Tite Kubo’s original manga series of the same name. Noriyuki Abe served as the director, while Studio Pierrot produced it.
366 episodes of the series were shown on TV Tokyo between October 2004 and March 2012. The plot centers on Ichigo Kurosaki’s exploits after he gains the abilities of a Soul Reaper—a death personification akin to the Grim Reaper—from Rukia Kuchiki.
His newly acquired abilities compel him to assume the responsibilities of protecting people from bad spirits and leading the souls of the deceased to the afterlife.
Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War Anime Gets Release Date
As the anime revival draws nearer to its October release window, Studio Pierrot on Sunday unveiled a brand-new trailer for Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War.
The new appearance hinted at Ichigo Kurosaki’s next adventure as he heads toward a direct conflict with the all-powerful Yhwach in the following arc. On October 10, Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War will be released.
According to what we do know so far, Thousand-Year Blood War appears to start up after the events of the original anime and will present viewers with the manga’s last chapter.
In 2016, Bleach’s manga serialization came to an appropriate ending. However, the Lost Substitute Shinigami arc in 2014 marked the anime’s story’s midpoint. The final arc that Thousand-Year Blood War will be based on his divided fans’ perspectives, but it’s wonderful to know that the adored series will finally be exhibited in its entirety.
Director Tomohisa Taguchi (Twin Star Exorcists) and character designer Masashi Kudo are working together at Studio Pierrot to create Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War.
Masakazu Morita, who portrayed Ichigo, wanted to capture the atmosphere he experienced while reading the manga and visualizing hearing the speech.
Morita explained that in order to get into character, he would deliver a statement that perfectly encapsulated that persona in an interview with Elicia O’Reilly of the Japan Foundation.
Why Did Bleach’s Story End Abruptly?
Some viewers questioned why the tale of Bleach ended so suddenly. The manga’s epilogue came across as being rushed and quite abrupt, which left readers with more questions than answers.
Kubo stated in 2016 that he had a partial fracture and torn tendons in his shoulder as a result of drawing continuously for 15 years.
In 2011, a persistent cold that he could not shake caused a dramatic decline in his general health.
The manga artist would frequently be confined to a bed for as long as a week at a time before recovering and being ill once more.
Although he often put up with the discomfort to keep working, Kubo’s deteriorating health clearly had an impact on his output and made continuing the Bleach arc challenging. Additionally, Kubo struggled with depression, which affected his willingness to work on Bleach.
Where Is Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War Available to Watch?
Fans outside of Japan may be able to see the entirety of Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War on Crunchyroll once it airs on TV Tokyo in October 2022.
However, a recent source claims that Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War’s streaming rights have been acquired by Disney+.
It’s likely that the anime series won’t be available on Crunchyroll if this is true. It’s unlikely that Netflix would host the upcoming anime’s release.
