Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War anime arriving for the fall 2022 season
Creator Tite Kubo announced the news out of Jump Festa
Some great Anime news in time for the holidays: On Saturday, Bleach creator Tite Kubo announced out of Jump Festa in Japan that Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War would finally get its anime adaptation. The series is set for release in October 2022.
Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War sees the return or soul reaper Ichigo Kurosaki as he jumps back into the battle with Zanpakuto in hand.
Unfortunately, all hell is breaking loose, as an uptick in Hollows descend upon the World of the Living, and the soul reapers’ home, Seireitei, comes under attack.
The original serialization of Bleach ended in 2016, but the anime ended in 2014, finishing up with the Lost Substitute Shinigami arc. This left the anime without the proper conclusion for many years. Though the Thousand-Year Blood War arc is hotly debated among fans for being the best or the worst, fans wanted their cherished shōnen series to get the ending it deserved. Now it’s finally on the horizon.
The Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War anime comes from studio Pierrot and director Tomohisa Taguchi (Twin Star Exorcists), with character designs from Bleach anime stalwart Masashi Kudo. And as part of the general reveal, Viz Media joined Tite Kubo in announcing that it has secured the worldwide rights to distribute the anime next October.
On top of the anime, Viz will also knock down the price of the complete series of Bleach (English dubbed, 13 seasons, 366 episodes) — a set that might typically run you over $1,000 — for a mere $99 during “anime month” in February 2022.
Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War Arc – Official Trailer
The first trailer for Bleach: Thousand Year Blood War is here.
Bleach Anime Returns With a Slick First Trailer for Thousand Year Blood War
The first trailer for the long-awaited animated adaptation of the final chapters of Tite Kubo’s classic shonen manga series has arrived.
The first look at the anime series’ long-awaited return was shown at this year’s Jump Festa event in Japan. The trailer was shown following a lengthy recap video that looked back at the entire original show. As the title suggests, the new season of the Bleach anime will be based on the manga’s Thousand Year Blood War arc, which was published after the original Bleach anime ended its broadcast run in 2012. The stylish trailer shows off the new season’s updated animation style, and shows many characters from throughout the series, including central protagonist Ichigo, Rukia, Orihime, Soifon, and the brutal Kenpachi. The series will begin airing in Japan in Oct. 2022.
Shortly after the presentation, VIZ Media confirmed that it would release the series outside of Japan.
The Bleach anime premiered in 2004 and ran for 366 episodes.
Despite being one of the most popular anime series of its era, the show came to an end four years before Kubo concluded the manga, meaning the last part of Ichigo’s story previously went without an animated adaptation. The original anime series was produced by Pierrot, the animation studio that was also behind the Naruto TV series.
Bleach: Thousand Year Blood War was first announced in March 2020 during a presentation meant to commemorate the then-upcoming 20th anniversary of the series. Earlier this year, Kubo published the first new chapter of the Bleach manga since 2016, entitled “No Breaths from Hell.” The chapter was originally announced as a one-off release meant to mark the series’ anniversary, but fans soon discovered that the story was actually setting up a brand new adventure for Ichigo and the rest of the Soul Reapers. Since the chapter’s release, Kubo and Shueisha have not officially announced further manga chapters, but many fans have already come to the conclusion that a sequel series is inevitable.
Bleach originally premiered in 2001 is one of the most popular shonen manga series in history, achieving a circulation of over 120 million copies around the world. The original manga came to an end in 2016, though Kubo returned to its world in 2018 with a spinoff series, Burn the Witch, which is set in England and explores the western branch of Soul Society.
Jump Festa is a yearly event put on by publisher Shueisha to celebrate the Weekly Shonen Jump magazine and all of the anime and manga franchises that it has helped to launch. The year’s festival is a hybrid event: in-person activities are being held at the Makurahi Messe convention center in Chiba, Japan, but the event is also being streamed to certain regions through Weekly Shonen Jump’s official website and YouTube channel.
Waht is Bleach? (stylized as BLEACH)
Bleach is a Japanese anime television series based on Tite Kubo’s original manga series of the same name.
It was produced by Studio Pierrot and directed by Noriyuki Abe. The series aired on TV Tokyo from October 2004 to March 2012, spanning 366 episodes. The story follows the adventures of Ichigo Kurosaki after he obtains the powers of a Soul Reaper—a death personification similar to the Grim Reaper—from another Soul Reaper, Rukia Kuchiki. His newfound powers force him to take on the duties of defending humans from evil spirits and guiding departed souls to the afterlife. The anime adaptation includes original storylines not found in the manga with repeated appearances and stories containing these original characters.
Viz Media obtained foreign television and home video distribution rights to the Bleach anime in March 2006. Bleach was broadcast in the United States on Adult Swim from September 2006 to November 2014.
In March 2020, it was announced that the manga’s final story arc, “Thousand-Year Blood War”, would receive an anime television series adaptation, which is set to premiere in October 2022.
‘Bleach’ Fans Are 1 Step Closer to Getting an Official Return Date for the Anime
Bleach is often counted among the anime classics, but the series was canceled before it adapted Tite Kubo’s manga all the way through. Nearly a decade later, it’s getting a new batch of episodes, which will showcase the Thousand-Year Blood War Arc. Naturally, fans are eagerly anticipating a release date for Bleach‘s return. And they may be one step closer to getting one.
Ever since the March 2020 announcement that Bleach would return, fans of the anime have been waiting for the Thousand-Year Blood War Arc to get an official release date. Ahead of Jump Festa 2021, Shonen Jump News – Unofficial tweeted that the series had a timeline in mind.
A release timeline pushes fans one step closer to receiving an actual, concrete date for Bleach‘s return. And some believe Jump Festa 2022 could seal the deal — or, at the very least, deliver a trailer for the coming episodes.
