What you need to know about Bleach’s new anime
For those unfamiliar with this new anime, Bleach debuted in early October 2022 after years of teasing. The show marks Ichigo Kurosaki’s return to the small screen after a decade of waiting. His original anime debuted in October 2004 and ran for eight years before wrapping up. The show was canceled before creator Tite Kubo finished Bleach’s manga, so the story’s final saga was never adapted. Now this weakness is being addressed, and Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War has been met with high praise since its launch under Studio Pierrot.
