Bleach Thousand-Year Blood War

Viz has confirmed that the second part of Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War already has a premiere date on Hulu and has also done so giving great news to all fans of the anime in the United States, as it will arrive in simulcast, or what is the same, without delays and at the pace of its broadcast in Japan.

Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War Part 2 will premiere on July 8th on Hulu in the United States and on Disney+ in the rest of the world. The anime will feature a new episode every Saturday and will consist of 13 more episodes with two more seasons in the future.

Here is the first trailer of this second season, “The Separation”:

Bleach TYBW, the return Ichigo deserves

Thousand-Year Blood War marked the return of Bleach more than ten years after its original farewell (which was overnight and through the back door). This new anime aims to make up for that by adapting the last 218 chapters of Tite Kubo’s manga (the missing ones, from 480 to 698, those of the Thousand-Year Blood War) in the way we fans have always dreamed of.

Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War, with no censorship whatsoever and significant plot changes, counteracts the hasty retirement of Tite Kubo, who apologized for it at the time, admitting that it was because he could no longer physically handle it. The mangaka suffered from shoulder pain and had torn tendons as a result of the infernal schedules he had been subjected to for fifteen years, as long as Bleach had lasted. The artist confessed that he had spent entire days bedridden with pain and needed to put the Shinigami story to rest.

But as we said, Kubo supervised Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War and with this new anime he will answer the questions that the manga could not, thus filling in some gaps in the script. We’ll see how many loose ends he’ll be able to tie up and if he’ll be able to say goodbye to one of the most important Shonen of the 21st century with the honors it deserves. For now, it looks good.
