In 2016, the Bleach manga ended after a 15-year-run. The original anime series had wrapped up a few years earlier in 2012, meaning that the animated series never concluded. But that will change because now it’s been announced that the Bleach anime is coming back.
The manga’s closing arc “Thousand-Year Blood War” will be adapted into an anime series starting in 2021. This is very good news for Bleach fans, giving them the animated closure they’ve long wanted.
In case you haven’t heard, the Bleach anime is coming back! Read the “Thousand-Year Blood Arc” before it’s animated! It starts from Chapter 480! Members can read all of Bleach and much more in the Shonen Jump Digital Vault! https://t.co/OxnZRF0yYv pic.twitter.com/KHjhOWUWE2

In the meantime, Kubo diehards can keep busy with an OVA and a serialisation for the one-shot comedy manga called Burn the Witch he created in 2018.
Below is the OVA teaser:
The Burn the Witch anime will air this spring with Studio Colorido handling animation duties. Before that, starting this winter, the Burn the Witch manga will be expanded for short-term serialisation, according to the unofficial Weekly Shonen Jump Twitter.
