The much anticipated premiere of Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War is scheduled for October 10th, 2022. What still isn’t known is which streaming service the simulcast will broadcast on.
In the trailer, the song “Scar” by J-Pop artist Tatsuya Kitani was revealed as the opening for the anime.
Details of which service will stream Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War are non-existent, though rumors online have overwhelmingly declared Disney+ as the provider. It is likely that more information is expected in the coming weeks. In North America, Crunchyroll, Hulu and Netflix have customarily carried simulcasts for anime, often within hours of being shown in Japan.
Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War animates the gripping end to Bleach, with the Soul Society under siege by Yhwach, the forebear of the Quincies, as he attempts to eradicate all Soul Reapers.
Staff who worked on the original anime run have returned, including character designer Masashi Kudo and music composer Shiro Sagisu. Tomohisa Tagushi is directing this new series with animation by Studio Pierrot.
Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War is adapted from the manga Bleach by Tite Kubo which comprises 74 volumes published from August 7th, 2001 to August 22nd, 2016.
