Bleach gets a release date and celebrates it with a new trailer

As part of  Jump Festa 2022, Shūeisha revealed the official trailer, a new visual, and more details about Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War ( Bleach:  Sennen Kessen – hen ). The final arc adaptation of Tite Kubo’s original manga will premiere in October 2022.

The production will continue in the hands of Pierrot (Naruto), the studio responsible for all the franchise projects since 2004. The main change between the staff falls on the director and screenwriter Tomohisa Taguchi (Akudama Drive), who replaces the original director Noriyuki Abe. Taguchi will also oversee the series scripts. Masashi Kudo returns as character designer and Shiro Sagisu as a composer.

The anime will also feature the original Japanese cast led by Masakazu Morita as Ichigo Kurosaki.

Tite Kubo’s work was originally serialized in Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine between 2001 and 2016. Shūeisha publishers compiled the manga into 74 volumes, which have sold more than 120 million copies worldwide. The story has inspired video games, novels, plays, a Japanese live-action film, and, of course, a successful anime adaptation consisting of a 366-episode series, two OVAs, and four feature films.

Shūeisha provides the following synopsis for Bleach :

“15-year-old Ichigo Kurosaki is a boy who can see and contact ghosts. Despite having that special gift, Ichigo leads a quiet life but, suddenly, a girl who calls herself Shinigami (Goddess of Death) appears before him, and they are attacked by an evil spirit called Hollow who apparently is a devourer of souls. The members of his family fall one by one in front of him. What will Ichigo do? “

Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War will adapt the manga’s final arc known as the “Thousand-Year Bloody War,” which covers volumes 55 to 74 of the print.


Big fan of the video game and Tech Industry, I also consider myself quite a techie, so I always try to be up to date on all technical information.
