Finally Some good news for Bleach in its full glory. The Bleach Anime is confirmed to be returning with the ‘1000 Year Blood War’ Arc along with Author Tite Kubo’s new manga ‘Burn The Witch’.
In the recent issue of Jump Magazine in Japan, it was revealed that creator Tite Kubo’s popular Shonen series (Bleach) will return in 2021. The anime will cover the “Thousand-Year Blood War,” which begins in Chapter 480 of the manga to the end of the series in Chapter 686.
No further details on the anime adaptation was revealed in that issue.
Bleach fans were devastated when the anime was halted in 2012 after the completion of the “Fullbringer” arc. No official reason was given for the series’ cancellation, but many believe that the rising costs of production along with the anime catching up to the manga too quickly were major factors.
Burn the Witch will be serialized with an anime adaptation this fall. Some of you may remember that its was a one short relaese in back 2018, that is almost a bleach sequel that starts 12 years after the very last chapter of Bleach Manga . Which is placed in the western branch of soul society. While the entire Bleach story took place in the Eastern Branch of the Larger Soul Society.
Studio Colorido is handling the production of Burn The Witch with Jump listing Tatsuro Kawano as the director with the two female leads being voiced by Yuina Yamada as Noel Niihashi and Asami Tano as Spangle Ninii.
So Bleach is getting full revial in coming months this year. So lets see what are we getting starting with the “1000 year blood war” anime adaptation. That last Arc of Bleach was not animated in the original anime that ended in the March of 2012.
But just because it is the last arc it doesn’t means that its gonna be short. Just to give you an idea that how much Bleach material they have to adapt, the entire bleach manga is 686 Chapters long. The original anime ran from Manga Chapter 1 to 479 . So there are more than 200 chapters of bleach left ago which is almost half the amount chapters that used in the anime minus the fillers.
Needless to say there is very much material to cover the several seasons for the bleach anime. We don’nt have any comfirmation about the anime adaptation beside the fact that its a 20th anniversary project. Bleach came out in 2001 in August. So the anniversary will be in 2021 next year. Kubo might revise the ending of the bleach which will give fans the reason to watch it.
The animation will be done in the updated anime style probabaly for most of us to jump upon the high express train.
This Whole thing was announced on the same day that the manga Samurai 8 written by Naruto’s Author was gonna be canceled. Seems like Shonen Jump has literally jumped form One popular author to another and this time with much more confidence.
There is possiblity of Bleach Character cameos in “Burn the Witch”. And for which one you are more excited or for both tell us in the comment section.
