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 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.

    • I never read TYBW in case this ever happened. I can’t wait for the surprise I’m in for even though I know most of the outcomes. One of the coolest pieces of my childhood is back.

  • Meh, the first three arcs are great no doubt, but I always recommend dropping the show at episode 64, it’s all downhill from there.
