Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War now has a debut date as well as a brand new trailer showing off some of the gorgeous animation in motion from the upcoming anime. The anime will be simulcast when the first episode airs on 10 October and altogether will run for four cours (or quarters of a year).
As revealed by Anime News Network, Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War has received a new trailer showing off its striking updated animation under Studio Pierrot and a release date of 10 October 2022 when the first episode airs. According to ANN, the anime will run for four cours, with each cour containing 12-13 episodes, meaning it will likely contain between 48-50 episodes.
Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War will conclude the Bleach manga from Tite Kubo, adapting the final arc of the popular shounen series. The Soul Society will be pitted against its most formidable adversaries yet when an army of Quincy invaders infiltrate the realm, forcing the shinigami to unleash their full strength.
In addition to the new trailer, we also got information on new and returning cast and crew. Twin Star Exorcists director Tomohisa Taguchi will replace Noriyuki Abe as the series director as well as oversee the script. Shiro Sagisu will return to compose the music. Masakazu Morita, Fumiko Orikasa and Noriaki Sugiyama will reprise their roles as Ichigo, Rukia and Uryu, respectively, among others (full list of the cast can be found here).
The opening theme song will be “Scar” from Tatsuya Kitani (briefly heard in the trailer) and the ending song will be “Saihate” by SennaRin.
In related news, some rumours indicated that the anime will stream on Disney+, though there hasn’t been any confirmation on this yet.
